differences of online and offline play.

Post by admin »

When at the game room, the HUD is displayed at the bottom of the screen. From Wikipedia, "In video gaming, the HUD (heads-up display) or status bar is the method by which information is visually relayed to the player as part of a game's user interface." Displayed on the HUD is the name of the player, the player's wins, how many game turns are remaining for that player, and the score for that player. Depending on the game played and if you are playing either online or offline, the wins, turns and score may or may not be seen.

The turns text on the HUD refers to how many game board moves or turns you have remaining. You will lose the game when your turns reach zero.

In both offline and online play, you cannot play a game against both computer and human simultaneously.

When at the lobby, room 1 and 2 are reserved for a game against the computer. Those rooms always have a total of 1 player in them because they are displayed for only you to see. The data of those rooms are not dynamically shared to other players.

Game statistics are not used when playing against the computer in both offline or online play. Also game statistics are not used while playing against another human in offline play. Game statistics are only available when playing against a human online.

The time remaining text is the total allowed time to play a game. Time remaining text is a feature for both offline and online play. The game will end for that player when time reaches zero. A game statistics will be recorded if that game was played online.

For a list of game statistics of online play, see the leaderboards.
