Reversi App Reviews

I tried all free Reversi games. I was a bit dissapointed until I bought this game. The most serious electronical player.

You get what you pay for

This game has much stronger AI than the other Reversi games. Its the only one worth playing.

Excellent version

Putting my review up from 4 stars to 5. The AI is great, and, as I have gotten better at the game, higher levels continue to provide challenge.

Good game!

Plays great and easy to enjoy playing. Great AI and graphics.

Works perfectly, but...

The game is fine in terms of look, sound, and ease of use, but frak me, the AI is ridiculous! Ive played this game for years but I cant beat the game on Beginner! Im no Einstein, but I should be able to win at that level. I cant imagine what the expert mode must be like. This game needs to be better balanced because the way it is now is simply no fun.

Really nice version of Reversi

Im still new at Reversi, so I cant comment on the strength of the engine that powers the app, but I like everything else about it. I bought the Mac version first, and liked it so much that I grabbed the iPhone version, and I wasnt disappointed.

Best AI out of any other reversi game

This AI actually has opening book knowledge which is great to practice against.

The best but....

I think this has become abandonware

Clean & Appreciated

After sifting through half a dozen versions of this game, I really appreciate that Kiss the Machine doesn’t bombard the end user with adds for other games or begs the end user for reviews. This build of reversi is just what I was looking for in a single player app. It’s clean and the AI is fairly challenging on “Advanced”. It doesn’t pull any punches and with three additional skill levels to master (6 total), I’m sure I will have many hours of enjoyment. It features single-player, against AI, and two-player, using the same device. The only down side of this app is that it doesn’t seem to have any on-line game-play, but that doesn’t bother me, so I still give it 5 stars anyway.

It does what is should.

Good value at $1.99. Nice little reversi game with decent graphics and a good interface. Plays a strong game of reversi.

Ok game but has bugs

It took 2 attempts for the game to download. There are no instructions, the "i" or information button in the lower right corner does not work, and there is no way to re-start the game. I have to keep hitting the "back" arrow many times to go to the begining. This gamel needs an update!!!!!!!

A fun, quick, and simple game

This is a solid, attractively designed app for a fair and appropriate price. You can tell the dev put some time and care into building it!

Good, solid Reversi game with nice presentation

Plays a good game of Reversi, with 5 difficulty levels. I was able to beat the Easy and Intermediate levels easily, and Im about 50-50 with Advanced. Havent won against Expert or Master. The game is very polished and professional. Despite the other review that claimed it has bugs, I have not had any problems with it and it *does* include instructions. One slight problem is that the "info" button might be too small as sometimes Ive had to press it several times before it registered a touch.

Buggy But Not Terrible

I love Reversi, and I definitely think this titles animations are far superior to the free Morocco, however, there are quite a few bugs. There is no way to restart a game without force quitting it (hold your Home button for a few seconds until it goes black and back to the home menu). I think once the bug fixes are made, thisll be a great game.

Time Between Games?

This is a good game, but the time between finishing a game and starting a new game is unacceptable long (tapping the "info" icon after a win/loss). Can this please be fixed in an update?

I like this one best

I downloaded this during the app store launch -before I saw the free ones. I had all three until yesterday. I kept this one and removed the other two. The app has been updated twice and it has more features like undo and redo. I do wish I could launch a new game from the main game screen. Please fix.

The best one

Im pretty good at othello game and other two free ones are east to beat which make them not worth keeping. This paid one is very competitive. At master level, I won one time out of 5 matches so far. If you only want an othello game for anoccasional entertainmant, get the free ones. This paid one has better graphic movement, sound, and usuful options that make 2 bucks worth paying. No bugs for me so far.

Best othello with 2 player action

The other free alternatives might have slight better graphics. But this game is true to the original game. Having a 2 player action is just invaluable so much fun to play with friends anywhere. I love it.

The most challenging of the three

As the title suggests, "Reversi" has the most challenging AI of the 3 Reversi/Othello games Ive tried so far. Morocco was only able to tie me once on hard (about which Ill not avoid whining about the fact that I was playing half-a**ed due to the lack of challenge) and Othello was a total breeze. Reversi, on the other hand, whoops me completely every time on master difficulty. As other reviewers have mentioned, other features include saving the game on exit, an available moves display, hints (havent tried, but the AI is obviously good), a scoreboard to keep track of your record, and some very basic instructions. The undo button is also nice in case you accidentally hit the wrong square. The graphics are basic with animation for flipping pieces and sound effects for moves and flips. In all honesty though, Im not sure a simple game like Reversi really needs much in the way of presentation. I personally would prefer not having to wait for the pieces flip sometimes. One thing that all of these games lack is the ability to play against another person over the network. I, for one, really hope that this feature is eventually added. So if youre looking for more of a challenge than the free apps offer, pony up the whopping $2 (and save a penny for a Tootsie Roll) and I dont think youll be disappointed. And for those who complain about all of these games being impossible, just learn the rules and practice a little, maybe even look up some strategies (there are a few basic ones that Im sure will get you past the easy difficulties) and you’ll enjoy this great game.

Better than Morocco

Morocco is great for free, but for a couple of bucks you can play this and be able to watch the gameplay happen . In Morocco moves happen instantaneously and thus I never know what happened. In Reversi, you can take back moves and it displays what the last move was. This helps a lot if you want to work on improving your game. If your a fan of the game, spend a couple dollars.
