    Hiya,

    My first iPhone game, 3D Checkers, will hit the free section of the appstore in the next day or two.

    My goal with this app is to really nail the board-game experience. I am unsatisfied with the gameplay of current popular checkers titles, which don't let you directly manipulate pieces, and sometimes use clunky pop-up dialog boxes! Plus I find the standard flat 2D view rather boring.

    3D Checkers aims to immerse the player in an attractive environment with intuitive direct touch-and-drag control. It offers two different board styles, two different AI levels and a human vs human "hotseat" mode.

    Here are some screenshots. You can also see it in action at 3dcheckers.koduco.com. I hope you like it!

    Yes! I'm working on peer-to-peer real time play, and asynchronous (casual) gaming using push notification.

    Looks very polished!
    And if it really is free, it's a definite download for me. :D

    Yup! Totally free. Although as I add features, I may charge something in the future.

    I really like this game. Polished menu UI, good play mechanics. Maybe the fact that I won my first game helps, too. ;) I was playing on easy though, so I bet the harder difficulty would be challenging for good checkers players (which I am not).

    Edit: I submitted a review, too.
