This HTML5 game is a turn based, multiplayer online game you can deploy on common LAMP server and is loosely inspired by the board game called Jumpin.
The game needs two players, there is no AI behind the screen but the sparkling brain of another human being. You can invite a friend to challenge you by using a simple link.
You can send the link in several way:
On desktop computers you can send it by e-mail from just inside the game or, if you prefer, you can copy and paste the link from the game to your favorite Instant messaging program like Skype or similar applications.
On mobile devices you can send the link by e-mail, WhatsApp or SMS.
On every platform you can invite friends by using G+ , Twitter or Facebook buttons.
The game comes with two specific resolutions, they are switched basing on the device screen resolution so to guarantee the optimal playability on the large screens of PCs and on small screen on mobile devices.
The game comes with with English text as fall-back language, you can add your language translation by simply adding a JSON file to the server (read the documentation on how to, Italian translation is available as reference), so, if a user having the browser set in your language the game automatically switches to that language, if that language is not available it fallbacks to English.
There are some aspects of the game you can customize by editing the preferences file.
HINT:You can try playing it in two distinct windows of the browser:
Start the game, click the Play button, write your nickname and click ok button, in the next screen copy the link by hitting CTRL+c (CMD+c on Mac), open a new browser window and paste it in the address bar. When the new game instance will be loaded join the game by clicking the Join button, write another nickname and click ok button. The game will start in both windows and so you are ready for playing versus yourself.
