Atoms:DS

Follow its progress at Atoms blog

Code and Sound FX by:
Ross "GouldFish" Gouldthorpe

Art by:
Chris Hildenbrand

Music by:
Kikaimaster


Objective:
Destroy all the other players Atoms.


How to play
Each player takes it in turn to place an atom.
This atom can either be placed on the an empty
square or on top of one of the players existing atoms.
Atoms will go critical and explode if the same number of atoms
are placed on the square as there are surrounding squares.
(e.g corners take 2, edges take 3 and centre take 4)

When an atom goes critical and explodes it will place new atoms
horizontally and vertically around the square. Any atoms already
in those squares will be increased in size and become the property
of the player that started the explosion.

Chain reactions are the key part of the game.

Looks very nice a professional! A very nice piece of work! I congratulate you on it but this seems really similar to something i've already played...

Love the art direction btw!

Previous versions have been posted up here, but the last 2 ones hasn't so I thought I would create a thread that I would keep updated.

The game is based on an old Amiga game I used to play years ago, with a few additional touches.

I've got a great artist that's been doing all the still artwork, and I've done the animated stuff.

This game is actually really addicting xD. I hope it continues development (maybe make up a story and have the setup like that one game from Multiple:Option "Anime Jo All-Star Kirifuda Taisen", a bit of story and then a round, a bit more story, and another round xD).

I think I might have encountered a glitch. I was using No$GBA and used Professor Blue (me) against Professor White (cpu). I won, but the chain reaction continued for like a minute before I decided that it wasn't going to end any time soon and closed the emulator.
