I'm looking to develop a simple android application (with a view to also releasing it as an Apple application too)
The Genre is of the leisure variety i.e. a game and is quite simple in structure. It is similar to checkers (draughts).
The algorithm driving the application should be simple
Scope for the application is as below:
-The application should have all menus, main play screen and any other screens the user sees whilst running the application to be of a high quality and well presented and use 3 main colours; red, white and a rich-mid shade-blue
-The application should have should have the main play screen (where users spend 90% of time in the application) to have some 'real estate' (screen space) dedicated to running advertisements as I would like revenue from the game to come from purchasing as well as from advertising.
-The application should have the ability to play friends/people nearby running the same program nearby both in wifi range and farther. Number of participants should never be more than two combatants
-The application should have the ability to chat between the two combatants with the ability for either to turn chat off
-The application should have a few different configurations in terms of rules of game play
-The application should have some form of copy protection and also reference my ownership of the idea (are you able to give me information on how I can maintain ownership through the development phase)
