New to the game

Funny...I read some reviews and I wonder if they’re playing the same app. I’m a beginner and I’ve played maybe 60? games on this program AND unlike many of the other sites mentioned this app is so EASY and fun to use.
I’m at 12Kyu and I’ve had my head handed to me by much better players (that’s how you learn) and I appreciate the dumb bots...a little positive reinforcement isn’t that bad...that’s what GoQuest has that the others don’t.
I have em all and as a beginner I keep coming back to GoQuest because it’s so easy to use and I get plenty of games. Addicted to the quick 13X13 games!

Great for beginners and up!

I’ve been playing on go quest for about a year now. From my very early learning days and on it has been enjoyable. One of my favorite parts about this app is as I’ve learned more and more, there are always players available around my level to meet and challenge things I’ve learned.

(I will say, I mean real players. Disabling bots in the settings menu once you’ve gotten the basics down is great.)

The one and only change I would make ***LISTEN UP MIND WALK!***
would be adding a chat feature. I cant tell you how many times I’ve had a very enjoyable game with a player and wished I could send a message thanking them for the game, or complimenting plays they had made.

That being the only thing I would add, this app definitely deserves 5/5 stars.

Thanks for making such an accessible and fun go platform!

Bad scoring and no time controls

I don’t believe the scoring at the end is always correct, which is frustrating. I believe there should be a transparent explanation of the score after a game, and an option to select dead stones with your opponent once both players pass: features that currently don’t exist. I wish there were also options to change the time controls and Komi instead of having only 1 preset option per board size.

I enjoy the snappy sound effects of the stones when they are placed, and the app is simple to use (although made for an older iOS). There are a few styles of stones/boards to choose from which is nice.
