Software development company, Digital Dopamine Entertainment™ announced that FOURSIGHT™ is now available for purchase at the Apple®, iTunes® App Store and in the Lite version on Facebook. A game of CALCULATION & DECEPTION, which describes itself as “Depth without Complexity”, is priced at $.99 and can be downloaded at
Created by practicing clinical psychologist, Reid Daitzman, Ph.D., FOURSIGHT™ is an all new board game app rivaling classics like chess -though easier to learn, master and ultimately enjoy. Though built purely to entertain, playing FOURSIGHT™ further contributes to learning “foresight” (hence its name); promoting critical thinking skills and expanding the life of the mind through play. FOURSIGHT™ primes players to plan ahead (in this case) against 3-levels of artificial intelligence- providing encouragement and rewards along the way. “It’s about promoting the life of the mind in a fun and engaging way,” explains Daitzman.
The FOURSIGHT™ app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running iOS 3.0 or later. A player must learn to think like his or her opponent; advancing from alternate vantage points-requiring that competitors play half of their opponents’ pieces in addition to those of their own, hence the tagline clever enough to play both sides…?
The app features Single Player against the computer as well as the novel, Two-Person Physical Play on iPad; allowing for players to use the screen as a “game board” for physical head to head play. The object is to score 4 or more by achieving 4 in-a-row Across, Down or Diagonally. Alternatively, one can win by lining up 3 in-a-row 4 times over. To play the Lite version offered on Facebook in both Single Player and Multiplayer mode go to http://apps.facebook.com/foursight/.
FOURSIGHT™ combines the simplicity of tic-tac-toe with the challenge of chess; making for an entertaining game of almost infinite variations. It will appeal to all who enjoy time tested strategy board games, like chess, checkers, tic-tac-toe, backgammon and Othello®.
FOURSIGHT™ is a “universal app” making for ease of delivery and pricing. Notable features include Three original artificial intelligence game engines, FREE Two-Person Physical Play for the iPad, Sounds emulating physical play with an audience, Quit, Save and Undo moves, Quick play instructions, Tutorials and Tips.
Digital Dopamine Entertainment™ announces a staggered functionality release with Multiplayer (Release 1.2) and Tournament (Release 1.3) to arrive also in Q1 of 2011.
