Strategovarius is a strategic music game for two players on touch screen. Each player has 16 nodes, each represented by a tone. A dot runs over the nodes and creates music. The topic of the game is to keep the sound-dot on your own side as long as possible and to avoid the tail that follows the sound-dot. When the dot runs over the edge of your field, it appears on the equivalent side of your opponent. The speed and difficulty of the game increase as you get better.
Strategovarius was a part of a research project at the University of Mälardalen, programmed and built by Anders Hedblom, Granholm, Cristopher Lagerhult, Henrik Alnestig and Johan Jönsson. Original concept and sound design by Håkan Lidbo.
