We’re always interested in looking at new spins of classic games. Just last week we took a look at Roc-a-Tac, a mashup between popular classics tic-tac-toe and rock-paper-scissors. Sticking with the tic-tac-toe theme, Kenneth Boreham’s Grid of War is tic-tac-toe with some new twists.
The game starts with the classic tic-tac-toe board but expands to a 5×5 board once one of the players makes three in a row. The goal is to get five in a row. Users can use two different special abilities that make the gameplay even more action-packed. Bombs are used to blow up both an ‘X’ or ‘O’ and the tile itself. No Xs or Os can be placed on a tile that’s been bombed for one turn. The other special ability is the Switch, which can be used to change an X to an O or vice versa. Additionally, switched pieces become indestructible for a turn.
This new twist on classic tic-tac-toe is available for only $0.99 and is a universal app.
