Don’t know if this is a bug but in checkflag, if you, for example, complete level 1 on hard you also unlock level 2 for medium

Yeah that was on purpose. Since the levels are the same with different AI I didn’t see a point in forcing the players to replay levels they can beat on a higher difficulty.

CheckFlag is awesome!I’d like so much to customize my army and choose the positions like in Shuuro http://www.riverhorse.eu/shuuro.htm.(the link is a review of shuuro).A sandbox level would be uber cool!

Thanks for the compliment. Organizing your army is a really cool idea, it also makes me think of something like WarHammer where you have a certain amount of points to buy pieces. I don’t think I…

For CheckFlag: you should look into the AI concepts behind the actual chess game. A deeper search-tree and a proper positional/material evaluation would greatly improve the AI’s performance. Otherwise, nice game! :)

yes it needs work once it had the chance to save the flag for a level one dwarf and didn’t

Regarding check flag…

Excellent game! The AI is pretty good. I think there may be too much tree seeking and not enough calculated weight per important pieces. Taking a greater piece with a lesser piece should be something the AI seeks to avoid (the minotaurs are the queens of the game…they should be protected as such and the AI shoul…

OMFG you have successfully made my favorite game on Kongregate and you can also make it better with harder AI, I know it must be pretty damn hard to lay out every board level and make the moves and stuff but seeing as how you can do this it would be easy for you so goooo JOSH!!

check flag is great but you should make the AI defend its flag

Thanks for the compliment. The AI should try to defend the flag in some cases but I am sure there are scenarios I missed.

interesting game, but yeah… AI… needs to be able to think ahead.

An idea would be to use a pathing algorithm (like A*) to check the path of every unit on the map, and if any of them are clear then move to intercept if it’s an enemy piece, or move to capture if it’s a player piece. Also setting up favorable trades is an impor…

Why don’t you add API to it? Then it may get badged!
