Here's a quick preview of the Menu screen redesign for the Board Horde game. I've used @kyatric's slot machine example to add a bit of fun to Hero selection (your team is now selected in a random Fruit Machine style) and added the ability to choose the board by using the nudge button.
The a.i. works a lot better now, and is far less suicidal. I've actually lost quite a few games whilst playing against it, and it seems to manage to get at least one hero to the exit each time I play (which is better than its previous average of 0 heroes).
There's still a few persistent bugs which I've tried to destroy many times, but they keep on coming back to annoy me. On internet explorer Heroes have a tendancy to just wander off the board and do their own thing (If I can't find a solution, I think I'll probably just add a speech bubble to the heroes that states: 'sod this for a game of soldiers. I'm off for a pint!') and on rare occassions the collisions with monsters fail to trigger and the turn doesn't end.
Anyway, the Newground competition results should be with us soon, and then after that I'll try and push the game to a few other sites and see how well it fares.
Stay tuned for a new playable update at the end of the month.
