Fun collection of strategy games
This is a great collection of strategy games that also gives a glimpse into history (an especially winning combination for me, personally) as well as into various cultures. The games’ rules are well implemented and clearly detailed in the help sections, which should not really leave any room for confusion for most players. AI progresses smoothly; I love the inclusion of adaptable as well as fixed difficulty so that you can practice as you see fit (either by having the challenge match your performance or by locking in a level so that you can develop or test strategies).
I run an abstract strategy club at my school for the students and this is a fantastic practice tool, both for myself and for the students. In fact, most of the games I included in the “curriculum” are included with only a few exceptions.
Recent update allows for use of general “checkers” pieces, which I think is nice and is greatly appreciated.
I am adding the list of additional games I also play with my students here, just in case the message I sent had not gone through:
Nine Men’s Morris (Mills)
8-Piece Mū Tōrere
Picaria (using the intersections as playable spaces)
I must say that I still use this app to this day and even play games with my son, who enjoys it.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the great review. If you provide a list of additional games you would like included, I will make an attempt to get them coded for the next release.
Simple, Clwan, & Great Fun For All Ages!
This is a fantastic gem of an app boasting s collection of light strategy games most people have never heard of! The AI comes with multiple automatic adjusting levels of difficulty (which gets very challenging!) the whole interface is simple, clean, and smooth, and of course the game allows pass and play with a friend! If you enjoy board games such as checkers and chess but are looking for something more with more unique tastes then this is the app for you! It is perfect for children and adults and for adults to play with their children! 5 solid stars! Don't hesitate to purchase this app! It is easy to tell that it was lovingly handmade; but that is certainly a good thing! Fantastic job developer! This is better output then a large majority of the big professional marketing app companies who could really care less about the overall quality of their app as long as it sells well. I've spent hundreds of dollars on App Store games but this app really stands apart! In short, I am having so much fun with this app and that is what matters most! I love how the games are themed such as the hunting dogs with the goal of cornering the fox! It adds great variety and interest to the actual gameplay itself!
