Love it

This game is supper fun. It can be challenging at times but it seems I always manage to find a way to win or close to win. I would like to make one correction- when we click on a line I would like it to pop up with a sigh that says something like” are you positive you want this line/box” because sometimes I click a different line because They are so close

Pretty nice

Obviously the game is a fun classic, and their implementation is pretty nice with the achievements, difficulty levels, and multiplayer too. However the touch control isn’t perfect, often placing my moves somewhere other than where I clicked (which is why d&l games in the past have used manual draw rather than tap auto-draw) which can really throw the game. I’m not able to undo or reset the game (without it counting as a loss) when it glitches either. There’s also some other suspiciousness which I’m still investigating.

Very enjoyable!!!

I love this game!!! It keeps my mind strategizing and I really like that!!! I used to play this game with my dad and sisters when we were young!!! I remover having to make the boxes!! This game is definitely addicting , even if you don’t have the slightest bit of a competitive nature like me!! Plus this app a a great game for my brain injury. I feel it for a helping my brain heal and go back to the way it was!!!
