Colliding Forces combines skill and strategy in a simple game you can play anytime with a friend. Each game is about 10 to 15 minutes long.
There are four pieces: earth, fire, wind, and water. Each has a distinct ability. Earth generates crystals (), which allow you to make more moves on your turn. Fire will destroy any other piece that touches it. Wind pushes other pieces away. Water allows a player to control their opponent's pieces.
The object of the game is to get one of each element into your opponent's goal. With each element you get a one-time special "finishing move". Finishing moves are very powerful and unique to each element. One example is water's finishing move, "Flood," which allows a player to control all pieces on the board until the end of their turn.
The rules are simple but the game play is strategic. Each element can be used in multiple ways which allows you to often surprise your opponent with a clever move.
We're hard at work on an online match-making version of Colliding Forces. When it's ready, we will be looking to help cultivate that online community here. Check back soon!
