Description Edit | History

Back of Box

Ricochet is the first abstract action-strategy game designed for play on your home computer. Every time you play, you'll find Ricochet to be challenging, thought-provoking and fast moving.

Get a million points!

You've got two launchers you fire at your opponent's goals. There are obstacles in your path--but you get points for banking your shots off of them before they reach the goal. The longer the shot, the more points you get.

In the long run, you're trying to rack up points for your personal Ricochet Rating. You are assigned a rating (by your computer), based on how well you play against your computer opponent or against another human. Your rating improves when you win the match. Can you top a million?

Match victory is yours when you win two out of three games (or three out of five, depending on the variant). The match is self-handicapping, so you get an edge-of-your-seat battle every time.

Outwit your opponent!

Six pieces are your Chessman. You maneuver them to block your goals from attack, while setting up the best possible shot for yourself. But the game is over as soon as one player has launched all of his shots, so don't wait for that perfect angle, or you'll lose without even firing a shot.

As in tournament Chess, you're under time pressure, but Ricochet has a "smart clock" that allows you to put more pressure on your opponent by playing super fast.

On one level, you'll enjoy Ricochet's fast action, color and sound. But on another level, the strategic subtleties will keep challenging you for years to come.
