Novedades online Cuatro en Raya

¡Cuánto tiempo! La semana que viene habrá muchas sorpresas en el online fruto de meses de trabajo reescribiendo todo el código de la app de Cuatro en Raya y del servidor. 

Habrá mejoras en las mecánicas conforme a todos los comentarios y sugerencias que me habéis ido dando desde que introdujera la versión multijugador online: partidas a dos rondas sin rechazo de oponentes, ranking mensual, mejor emparejador, distintos tableros, etc. 

Comentaré más detalles cuando esté publicada la actualización, y en la propia app os saldrá un aviso porque será obligatoria para todos los jugadores. ¡Gracias por seguir jugando y seguir manteniendo Cuatro en Raya HD en el top de juegos de mesa de Play Store!

Four in a Row HD gets Premium

Four in a Row HD (free at Play Store) has redefined the state of the art when it comes to connect-four like games thanks to its hundreds of riddles, challenging AI and quick no sign-up needed online play with skill based matchmaking.

Having achieved over 1 million downloads, graphics have been improved and there's a new option for pro users who want even more: the Premium features.

Premium features are unlocked with just a one-time small payment and will currently:
 - Remove ads
 - Unlock 120+ new riddles (you may try 12 for free)
 - Play the funny POP-OUT variant in riddles and custom match

The Pop-Out variant is a thrilling new ruleset where you can either drop discs as always or remove (pop out) one of yours from the bottom row, if any, of course.

Removing a disc will make the whole column change as all the other discs will get one row lower, thus changing the board setup and opening new challenges.

Thanks for your support and enjoy!

Back with more features!

So long since the last update, but a brand new version of Four in a Row is available, featuring statistics, enhanced AI, and beta-test access to the incoming new online service (enable in options) that addresses most of the issues of the current online service.
More specifically, two long-awaited features have been added to the new online: 
  • Automatic reconnection and game session recovery. This way, no matter if your mobile device switches from WiFi to 3G, the connection is lost for a while or the even the game server is restarted for maintenance, players might not even notice. This feature comes with a presence indicator to know if the opponent is online, away (disconnected, attending a phone call or whatever) or has quit the game.
  • Skill based matchmaking. With an internal ELO ranking, the online quickmatch service provides games between players of similar skills.
  • Favorites management. Now you can mark up to 50 players as favorites -both ingame and manually-, and next time you are finding online matches filter by favorites. Additionally, statistics are kept for all your favorites, so you can track the number of victories or the last time you played with them.
The new version also features statistics for offline modes (standard, don't connect four and fill the board modes in both hard and normal levels) and, of course, its well known riddles. There are more riddles coming, stay tuned ;)
