    Hello,

    I am new to this forum and the developer for Fastego a new game now available for iPhone and iPod Touch. Fastego is a fast paced game that combines strategy, discovery, deduction and risk taking to win. You set the level of play, arrange your soldiers and prepare to do battle! If you’ve every played any of the classic strategy board games, I think you’ll love this game.

    Fastego is available on the App Store for $0.99. More info is also available at www.fastego.com.

    I appreciate your time and feedback. Thank you!

    This looks like a simpler version of a classic euro board game called Stratego (click me). Never was too much into the game, because it's too luck based imo, but it definitely had it's fan base.

    Thanks for checking it out. Yes, Fastego will definitely appeal to the Stratego fan base!

    stratego too luck based? are you kidding me, did you ever actually play it? there's tons of strategy involved in setup (primarily) and piece movement...might have to check his one out, although i've been tryin to hold back on purchases for a little while...i'll think about it...

    Yes, there is strategy involved in setup and movement, but it mostly comes down to luck when you are playing someone you don't know well. The board and the mechanics are to confined to allow major movement scenarios. When setting up a game it mostly comes down to luck which troops the enemy has stationed on the opposing side. Don't get me wrong, it involves more strategic efforts than many other titles and i love that no dice are involved, but in general it depends to heavily on the luck component in setup.

    So is it like Stratego or a crappy knock off? Stratego is a difficult game to program the AI for.

    Download Probe for PC for a real Stratego clone.
     
  8. I'd like to know too. So far every review in appstore looks like it's their only app they've ever reviewed.

    I tried it, and a complete waste of $0.99.

    Anyone who has played Stratego will see this app for the garbage it truly is.

    The AI is terrible and there is no record keeper.

    Yes, it is similar to Stratego. The AI was the hardest part to code and I relied upon some classic chess algorithms and home made deductive reasoning algorithms. It's designed to be a quick game that you can play in a minute or two.

    Sorry, I just can't agree with a half-baked attempt to emulate Stratego.

    Stratego is one of my all time favorite games and NOT meant to be played "quickly." It is a game of strategy and time, of wit and reading one's opponent.

    Game enhancements

    Thanks for your feedback here and via the fastego site. We've tweaked the game some and cranked up the AI a bit.

    Also have a video available that might help people check it out before buying.
