New game currently in development by Lifemakers Studio

What do you get if you crossbreed air hockey, curling, pool, sumo wrestling... and even checkers?

An exciting little game with a very simple goal: propel your pucks so they ram your opponent's pucks out of the field! And whenever you score (drive off their puck(s) but don't lose any of your own), you get to push again! GO GO GO!

(Why checkers, you might ask? Because there exists a version of this game where you don't move from field to field but finger-flick your pieces across the board to knock off enemy's army.)

Despite the game's simplicity—and addictiveness!—it takes time to master the skill of propelling your pucks with the exact required force and direction. More than that, it takes strategy and foresight to not only score but create positions that are of maximum difficulty for your opponent. In the Battle of the Pucks, you can play against a human or a computer—and the computer's level of skill ranges from comically hapless to deviously agile!

Levels of the game will vary by the initial position of pieces. The further you go, the more difficult would be to knock off your opponent's pucks without losing your own pieces.

This GIF shows one round of the game, at the simplest of levels, where two computer opponents face off—one a little more capable than the other. The Greens start and get quite far along but critically misfire at some point—and the lone remaining Orange warrior takes revenge and brings its side to victory!

Our 7-year-old is also working on making new levels for the game!

You can also see our new score boards there.

As you ascend in your gameplay mastery, you will unlock advanced levels where the playing board can be non-rectangular and even non-convex! Here's a sampling of how the gameplay on such boards looks like. Watch in awe how two AIs are battling each other at their full strength... but still making errors, of course, because there may no longer exist a straightforward winning strategy for some of these boards, so the outcome often depends on chance.
