Genre: Multiplayer, Puzzle
Any puzzle-loving kid will go through a brief phase of thinking that Noughts and Crosses is the best game ever.
It's a beautifully distilled turn-based strategy game, and all you need is a pen and a piece of paper. What's not to love?
Then you bump up against the game's inherent limitations, realise that there are set methods to adhere to, and find that each game starts to resemble the last. By the tenth stalemate, it feels completely stale. Mate.
Tetra is like Noughts and Crosses but with more variables to keep it interesting.
Do me a solid
A thoughtful and tightly executed expansion of Noughts and Crosses that will spark plenty of online grudge matches
