Ratings and Reviews
It is a bit annoying to be asked each time if I want to start a new or saved game when there is no saved game, and to have to answer yes in a pop up if I want to do a double jump. But it does loose gracefully.
Lots of personality...for a checkers game. After a few thousand rounds you'll begin to understand what's meant by that. Good company in deep nights.
Don't care for having to diddle with a dialogue when making a double, and newer apps do away with this. If implemented, highlighting the route through multiple jumps and allowing these to be completed with minimal finger movements/dialogues would simplify play.
This is a great, stable app for passing the time while giving your brain a light workout.
Lousy for online games
This app is very good for playing against the computer. At its highest setting, it's almost impossible to beat.
As for online gaming against another opponent - it is awful. Most of the time there isn't anyone to play, and if there is someone to play, there is no time limit between moves. Most of the time, the player who is losing stops making moves mid-game and that's the end of it. Very disappointing online app to say the least....
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
