Terra is a simple "Flood-it" game where the objective is to beat the opponent by conquering as much land as possible. The game is played on a board with tiles of different colors. By changing color, you conquer the tiles adjacent to your current tiles that have the same color.
But keep in mind that you cannot change to your opponent's color or keep your current color.
However, Terra comes with a few twists to the standard Flood-it games. Depending on the level you're playing, you can get smoke grenades, bombs, teleports and more! In order to get to the next level, you must achieve 10 wins in the highest level. A loss in the highest level will increase the number of necessary wins (with a maximum of 10).
0 Plain Flood-it.
1 Smoke grenades. Each player gets 5 grenades. A smoke grenade costs 10 points, and will obfuscate an area of the playing field for a while.
2 Bombs. Each player gets 5 bombs. A bomb costs 25 points and will mix up the tiles in an area.
3 Mines. Mines are randomly scattered over the playing field as dark grey tiles.
4 Teleports. Two teleports (cyan colored) are available to teleport the player from one teleport to the other.
5 Craters. Random craters change the playing field.
6 Magic tiles. After each turn some tiles change color.
7 High points. Scattered over the field are orange tiles which score 25 points each.
You need to take your decisions fast, as time is limited. If you're too slow, the game will pick a random color for you and you loose your turn.
You can choose between a large playing field (100x50 tiles) or a small playing field (50x25 tiles).
You can play against another human (Human vs Human) on the same device taking turns, or you can play against the artificial intelligence (Human vs AI).
You always start in the lower-left corner, and your opponent (Human or AI) starts in the upper-right corner.
The game ends when all tiles of the field are conquered by either player. The player with the highest score wins.
