Android Stratego Project Introduction Mobile phone is being important device for everyone in the world. That is used for communication objective and appeared in last middle century. It is outage mind if you concern mobile phone is just a communication tool. In fact, its capability has exceeded people's imagination. So mobile phone is becoming important to everyone in the world. Mobile phone games are one of the pillars of development. It is being more important for mobile phone, especially for Personal Digital Assistant (aka PDA). The objective of this project is to produce Stratego Game with artificial intelligence that can run on the Android mobile phone system.
Stratego Game is popular game in Europe which appeared in the middle of last century. The brief description of the game is
"Stratego is a board game featuring a 10 * 10 square board and two players with 40 pieces each. Pieces represent individual officers and soldiers in an army. The objective of the game is to either find or capture the opponent's Flag, or capture so many of the opponent's pieces that he/she cannot make any further moves. Players cannot see the ranks of each other's pieces, so disinformation and discovery are important elements of the game."
Artificial Intelligence is essential aspect of this project. That is hot topic in current world. Lot of real world system used Artificial Intelligence algorithm to perform human�s work. Even some people believe that computers will eventually smart than human and replace human to lead the world. However this project will not have that level of intelligence. This project requests the intelligence that can beat almost human Stratego player.
This project attempts to combine those two things together to develop a smart Stratego game which can challenge every android phone owner.
