Hanga Roa ZIP file. Play Hanga Roa with Zillions of Games![All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Mr. Young-Hyun Joo did a very good job, the ZRF game play has improved a lot, and it can be a serious challenge for novices, but I must say that it is not a very strong player yet, though. The main reason is because Zillions is not well adapted for this kind of games with territorial elements. I expect that in the next version of Zillions (3.0? -that version would come, unofficially, at the ends of this year-), the programmer can use integers, set management, and the possibility of change evaluations in base to positions and/or specially defined conditions, it would be great for improve the A.I. to very high levels in some games like Hanga-Roa, Amazons ('El Juego de Las Amazonas'), Tepuy and many others.

Hanga Roa ZRf seems to work well, although Zillions plays it poorly, as in many other games with territorial elements.
