DON'T MISS THE CHANCE TO KNOW iBul AN EXCITING AND ANCIENT MAYA GAME, THAT WE BRING BACK TO LIFE AGAIN!!!
LIVE THE EXPERIENCE OF AN ANCIENT MAYA GAME IN A FABULOUS TRIDIMENSIONAL SCENARIO WITH PRE-HISPANIC MUSIC !!
iBul was inspired from an ancient Maya game called Bul. iBul recreates this game in a 3D scenario with pyramids, corns, warriors and prehispanic music.
A RUNNING-FIGHT GAME THAT COMBINES THE MOVING MECHANISM OF RACE GAMES LIKE BACKGAMMON AND THE GOAL OF ELIMINATION-BASED GAMES SUCH AS CHESS !!!!
The game consists of two group of warriors, a road and four corns. The goal of the game is to catch all the warriors of the opponent by moving the warriors over a road composed of squares.
To move the warriors over the road the player throw the corns twice (the corns act like a dice) and after that he/she decide the order of their movements. To catch their opponent the warrior has to move exactly where their opponent is sitting and after that he must bring the prisoner to its base.
Like many of the Middle America games, Bul was a game that used corns as dice. The corns were marked in one of its sides. The corns were thrown and after that the ones with the marked face up were counted.
The game has two types of warriors: The Eagle and the Jaguar warrior. These warriors differ between each other in the way they hunt and walk. The jaguar warrior can hunt by walking forward and backward, while the eagle warrior as soon as it catches a prisoner it returns to its base.
TRUST IN YOUR LUCK AND DEFINE YOUR STRATEGY BASED ON YOUR WARRIOR AND THE OPPONENT
To win in iBul you have to define your own strategy based on the warrior that you choose and the opponent ! But you will also need some luck to catch all the enemy warriors!
YOU CAN FIGHT THREE TYPE OF BATTLES:
