New games from LWS!

The ever-rising Little Worlds Studio's has just released two more games.

Their first, Survivium, is a strategy coding game where you program virus's to try to dominate a grid. A bit like a more elaborate and competitive "Conway's Game Of Life", or a much more accessible form of "Code War", the game lets you play though a series of standalone missions, as well as compete head to head with others around the world. You can also just experiment by pitting your own coded virus's against eachother - which is pretty interesting in itself!



Like, Colour Cross, its free to play, but paid for by additional content you can buy.

You can play on facebook here;
http://apps.facebook.com/survivium/?...kmarks&count=0
- and its also avaliable on iPhones.

Also, did I mention Survivum comes from the mind of Fredric Raynal? Some people here might have heard of him....

Next up is Lords Of Dynasty, a strategic MMO;

http://www.lordsofdynasty.com/

A adapation of the japanease best saleing game "http://www.3gokushi.jp/", currently its only avaliable in french, but there is a free beta for the next month.

Its pretty cool isn't it? I've only got upto the 8th tutorial level - finding it harder then I suspected it would be.
Its always interesting the diversity of results from relatively simple comands.

My HEX ownz ^_^
But she still can't beat tutorial 16

I recomend everyone read the help, btw. It gives slightly more details on the virus commands and I found it a bit usefull to work out better tactics.

Still fairly hard though.
It would be helpfully perhapes if the colour pallate represented the point in the virus's cycle it was currently at. Or maybe let you play things at slow motion to study them better?
hmm.
Either way its a nice thinking-mans game :P

I learned that copying the last tutorial virus you defeated genoma and improving it a little will get you to win on the next one... the problem is how you improve it :P

in german it's called "V10 - Blitz"

[EDIT]
Hah, just beat it.
Even though my new virus is much more resistent and stronger than the last one I don't like it's slowliness.


What's your way of destroying other viruses?^^

[EDIT02]
Won without problem till "V16 - Godz".
Don't know why there's no getting forward.

I'm at level 2 currently ^^.

I think the more efficient thing I have right now is something expending a lot in the first rounds then begins to be only about defense.

The DS could easily handel it, but not sure how easy actionscript code is to port.
Colour-Cross made it to the DS, so it might be likely if they see demand.

It could be more possible it winds up on the 3DS or DSi's download service though instead though given the DS is reaching the end of its life.
Also, the 3DS would allow them to do a lot more...for instance, your virus's could battle other peoples automaticly out and about using the "streetpass" mode, maybe even let you trace the spread of your virus over the world ver the p2p style exchanging of information.

Maybe I could find a way to beat him this way

Congratulations! How many points do you have with your champion?

And thanks for Godz! Never thought it would be such an easy code... have to try it tomorrow.

I currently have 2327 points (140th).
Well, simple codes allow the few orders to come back very fast. Still, it's not enough on higher levels.
