Playing single-player Word Search and Tic Tac Toe games on an Android™ device is surely fun. It can be even more fun if these games are played by two players where both players use their own Android™ devices to play the same Word Search or Tic Tac Toe game trying to beat each other and also chat at the same time.
If you have ever wished this, then this app is for you. Read on...
p2p Play N Chat (Free) is a peer-to-peer (p2p) app where two individuals use their respective Android™ devices to connect to each other to play and chat securely at the same time.
Chat messages are encrypted in transmission, not stored on the devices, not visible outside their context and permanently removed as soon as the connection between the two devices is closed, thereby maintaining privacy of the messages.
Membership of any web site hosting online gaming/chat sessions is not required. If direct connection is blocked by network providers, players can connect via p2p Play N Chat Server.
p2p Play N Chat (Free) has two game modes - Remote Game and Local Game.
Remote Game mode:
Remote Game is played with two devices. In this mode, two Android™ devices connect directly to each other (i.e., peer-to-peer) via internet and Bluetooth to play games and chat. Also, these devices can connect to each other via WiFi network in the (Pro) version of this app.
One device plays the role of the Host, which invites a remote device to connect as the Guest. The other device plays the role of the Guest to connect to the Host device.
Invitation is sent via SMS, Bluetooth or local WiFi network connection. Connection via local WiFi network is available only in the p2p Play N Chat (Pro) version.
Once the Guest connects to the Host, they can play Word Search game or Tic Tac Toe game against each other, as well as send messages via instant chat (SMS is not used for chat).
About remote Word Search game:
The remote Word Search game is played with a grid of letters with vaiable number of rows & columns - from (6 x 6) to (16 x 16). The grid size can be selected as any combination within this range, e.g., same or different number of rows and columns. The goal of each player is to find as many words as possible in the grid of letters until all words in the grid are found by both players. The player, who finds the most number of words, is the winner. Each player can see the words found by the other player during the game.
p2p Play N Chat (Free) version has only one set of words from which the words are randomly selected for each game.
p2p Play N Chat (Pro) version has different categories of words to play with. As a result, players from different
age groups, i.e., from kids to grown-ups, can play according to their choice of word categories for each game.
About remote Tic Tac Toe game:
The remote Tic Tac Toe game is the traditional Tic Tac Toe game. Both players get their turns. The moves of each player are visible to the other player during the game.
In summary, the Remote Game mode has 3 steps:-
Step 1 - Invite. One device (typically the Host) sends invitation to the other device, the Guest.
Step 2 - Connect to each other. The Host opens the communication channel and waits until the Guest connects.
Step 3 - Once connected to each other, the players start playing Word Search or Tic Tac Toe games or simply chat
Local Game mode:
In Local Game mode, only one device is used to play Word Search or Tic Tac Toe game. Chat feature is not available in this mode.
There is no opponent for the local Word Search game. The other features (i.e., grid size, category, etc.) remain the same as the remote Word Search game.
The local Tic Tac Toe game can be played against the device or with two players playing against each other on the same device.
