Description
Compete with the enemy team (blue boxes) for control of the supply depots (green boxes). A cross between a traditional real-time strategy game and minesweeper.

How to Play
Click to select units (red boxes), click again to tell them where to go.

Control green supply depots by getting close to them. Without enough supplies, your units will die.

A small dot appears on any unit receiving supplies. A unit with no dot is not receiving supplies (and therefore is losing health)

You can attack enemy units directly by getting close to them, but this will hurt you too.

Installation Instructions
Lightweight Install. Simply unzip and run "BoxWars.exe". Must have DirectX 9 installed (most machines do).

Technologies Used
C++, DirectX 9, Small custom-made library

Fun Facts
Ryan created last year's Guitar Hero-esque Jammin'. Truly an unstoppable one man show.

Jim's Corner
The boxes, combined with the ever changing background, make it feel like an interactive mondrian. Even the gameplay is abstract. Death merely means fading away, supply depots vanish, and everything moves at a measured pace. To win is to miss the point.
