Not your ordinary Tic-Tac-Toe…

-splash screen only-

When I was a child, my dad would draw a grid with many squares and tell me to write an “X” in one of the squares. He taught me to play Tic-Tac-Toe for “advanced players”. Instead of having to get 3-in-a-row to win, I had to get 5-in-a-row to take the game. I enjoyed this version of 5-in-a-row Tic-Tac-Toe so much, I decided to make an online version for multi-player gaming.

The game is built on the Adobe Flash technology, specifically with the Lingo programming language. My online version supports two-player modes with a chat feature for players to converse while playing. The game requires a dedicated web server to handle incoming and outgoing requests for online gaming between two players.

*update: My dedicated Shockwave Flash game server has been taken offline. ¬†I moved and no longer use a static ip address for my home web server. ¬†Someday, I will reboot this game in a more modern platform… maybe Facebook?
