Play the classic strategy game Othello (also known as Reversi) on your iPhone or iPod Touch. The object is to finish the game with more of your pieces on the board than your opponent.
- Play against the iPhone or against another person.
- Three difficulty levels allow for casual play while still providing a challenge to experienced players.
- Option to show (or hide) the current legal moves. Very useful when learning to play.

Challenging A.I. makes you step up your game!
I have a ton of games on my iphone, mostly ones I paid for, and this free app gets the most play from me!
Initially, even on easy, this game was spanking me hard. I was getting frustrated, I played 20+ games and I never won once!
Then I decided to actually study HOW the A.I was beating me so soundly. I played several games, and really observed the moves the game was making, and started to understand how poorly I was playing against it. Long story short, in the space of one morning I went from NEVER winning, to destroying my opponent every time. When EASY mode was no longer a challenge, I went to MEDIUM and found I could win every time as well. Finally on HARD mode it is killing me again, forcing me to improve my game even more.
Very fun and challenging, I just wish on HARD mode it wouldn't think for quite so long... sometimes it pauses for 30 seconds or longer.
IF YOU WANT A GAME THAT CHEATS BE MY GUEST A GET THIS
Excellent game, responsive developer
I've played more games of Othello since downloading this than probably in the whole rest of my life combined. Good game, well-implemented. I like the simple clean look of it, and the optional show-available-moves capability, and the fact that I can play a quick round in ten minutes while waiting in line. On the Hard level, it's a challenging game for me; I can beat it if I set it to show me available moves, but not if I don't. (But I'm very far from being an expert player; ymmv.) I strongly prefer Morocco to the other Othello app currently available, which I downloaded, tried a few times, then deleted--the other one is okay, but this one feels much more polished to me.
And the developer of Morocco is very responsive -- I sent him email to tell him that the game had hung, and he responded quickly with a note asking me to send a screen snap so he could check on whether the problem was the known bug that he had already fixed for the next version.
