Four in a Row (Connect Four) finally got the dimension it’s always missed! Play the latest version of one of all-time favorite game in 3D.
Four in a Row is a two-player game in which the players alternately put colored balls at the top of a grid. The balls go to the bottom of the grid, occupying the next available space within the column. The object of the game is to be the first to get four of your balls next to each other vertically, horizontally or diagonally.
One can play against a friend (using Bluetooth) or against the device.
Specific instruction can be read when clicking the help button (question mark) on the action bar, when game start (after selecting one or two players).
In the opening screen one can play against the device, invite another player for a game (through Bluetooth) or make themselves available for a two player game. The player who initiates the games should select the other player device to start the game, and double tap the board when ready to start.
In the option screen a player can select board’s size (in a two player game, the size of the board set by the initiator of the game), and for playing the device, set the level of difficulty, add random obstacles and decide who will start the game. In the game itself there are two way to view the 3D board.
Changing the view can be done from the “action bar” on the top of the screen. “Dynamic View” a bird eyes look at the board, which allowed the player to move it to different angles, using “dragging”.
When lifting the finger, though, the board will go back to its original state, to allow adding a new ball, by double tapping in the space (note not to double tap on the actual green separator between the rows). “Static View” shows all the “layers” of the board at once, with the bottom left corner marked in white to help align the layers. To insert a new ball, double tap anywhere, and a top view of the board will appear, where the player can select the column to enter the ball to.
The player can start a new game simply by pressing the “new game” button on the “action bar”. If it is a two player game, the opposite will have to approve it.
