The players proceed to strategically reverse the disks in their favor until both players have no more legal moves to make.

Ratings and Reviews
Player rating please
Design is mostly good, plenty of opponents to play online. I'm a good player and would prefer to play against good players. Please implement Elo ratings like Dr. Reversi and other apps have.
Also it’s started crashing (maybe ios13?) right after the first game starts, causing me to lose. Tried closing it and opening it, still happens.
Ah well the trademark holder drove iReversi out of business so I guess I’m stuck.
Please change how winning points are counted
I love this game and I play a lot everyday. Thank you for working hard to make this possible. That been said point system is not working properly I think. I feel some people have figure out the way to stay in top without playing the game. Please get rid of people getting points from games that are less than 5secs. Even 30secs. Most people who actually “Play” this game would probably like that. Everyone need to play the game to earn points. I know Othello is not about getting the points but one of the aspect of why I like this game is the point system.
If there are some other point systems you can put into the game so better player who can’t play as often can stay in the top some people might like that also.
Not only is the game been super buggy of late, it has now started making moves that I didn’t make and is not showing the correct places for me to move. The last few months the game will crash every few games right after I make my first move when playing against the computer. It also does the same thing when playing against a live opponent. But today I was playing a live opponent and it started making moves that I didn’t not make. Frankly this is poor given that this is the “Official” game. You’d think you guys had enough resources to make this game work consistently. Perhaps not. In any case, would be nice if it was addressed and resolved.
Developer Response ,
Hi Wilmamae! Thanks for your feedback. Regarding the instability and crashes, it can help to turn your device off and back on again to free the memory of the device. We unfortunately are not able to reproduce the crashes ourselves which makes it harder to figure out the reason for them. As for the online problems, we are exploring different options to improve the multiplayer experience (we have already tried out different server providers for example) but it might take some time to really progress here. The term "official" indicates more that we have the license to use the name, etc. of the brand but we don't get any funding for it. We are still a small company with multiple card, board and dice games but try our best with our limited resources. We think we might be able to fix some of the issues soon as they seem similar to some problems in other games of ours that we already fixed there but we unfortunately can't promise anything as games can behave differently and one solution might not work for another game.
