A 2 player strategy game themed as spaceship combat. Specifically 2 larger frigates pelting each other pirate ship style (hence "broadside")
Currently I have a working barebones prototype of the game, and the real version I've been developing for a couple weeks.
* much of the art in these pictures is placeholder
Each player has 3 main things to worry about:
-1 column of 3 defense tiles (the shields)
-1 column of 3 attack tiles (the turrets)
-and the hull of the ship itself
each defense and attack tile can be upgraded by level, which uses 1 move per level
attack tiles can also obviously be used to attack the opponent, which also uses 1 move per attack (also you can only attack with a tile once per turn)
clicking the ship itself at the beginning of your turn will sacrifice that turn and add one to your total move pool.
when you attack the opponent, if they have the adjacent defense tile activated you do your attacks level in damage to that tile, and all the damage is blocked from the opponents ship.
if you hit their attack tile you do damage to both the opponents attack tile and the ship.
and obviously if they have nothing in the way you just do straight damage to the opponent.
There are other things involved as well, but not in the base prototype which is available to download here -> http://www.mediafire.com/?4xhcbmznxo74h1m
The real version is, while playable, a bit of a mess right now so I wont be making it available yet.
