Gomoku (Five in a Row) is a strategy board game played on a Go board. The first player to get an unbroken row of five stones wins the game.

Also known as Caro, Omok or Gobang, it is traditionally played with Go pieces (black and white stones) on a go board with 15x15 intersections.

Gomoku X brings this great game to your iPhone. You can enjoy Gomoku in family game time, or you can also enjoy the game by playing with the AIs of varying difficulties. Beware that it is very challenging to beat the best AI in this game!

You will also gain experience points by winning against the AIs (+1 for Easy, +3 for Medium, +5 for Hard, and +7 for Expert).

Decent game

It’s a fun game, but I think the easy mode should be a bit easier. For beginners like me, it took a lot of practice to win instead of letting me win a could be be able to move up. Also, there should be an undo button because it’s very easy to misclick.

This is an awesome game to play when you have some down time. If you like a mentally challenging game... this is it!!!!
I have greatly improved as a player ever since I started playing. The only improvement I can suggest is adding different board styles and piece colors.
Other than that ITS A GREAT GAME!!!

Fun App for the most part

The only thing keeping this from 5 stars to me is that when you need to put your phone down or do something else, sometimes the timer will keep going so you either “win” or “lose” incorrectly.
