Wonderful Fun!!!

No violence. No weird and wonderful controls. No massive RAM and CPU demands. Simple to grasp but will take a lifetime to master (if ever)! Plays beautifully on Mac or iPad. Developer and Support wonderful. Want to occupy some time and really enjoy yourself? This is a fine, fine addition to your games collection.

Dear Great Southern Bear,

It makes me very happy to see you having so much fun with Piccolo. Rest assured that more updates are on their way for iPad, iPhone and Mac. I wrote this software exactly to make people like you have an enjoyable time and I hope you’ll tell your friends about Piccolo. Have a great day.

This is great fun!

Inexpensive… great fun!!! The two bucks to get the full version is no big deal and we’ll worth it. Beware the AI will likely kick your behind but it is hysterical trying to beat it!

Want something to kill time with and make you happy? This may be the ticket! I love it!

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much, Great Southern Bear! We're introducing an update very shortly that will allow you to further reduce the AI difficulty, which should make the game more accessible to beginners.

I really appreciate your support. Piccolo will be kept up to date with improvements in the coming days.

good game

don't ask for reviews this frequently. Othello. Nothing more nothing less. No adds, doesn't ask you to buy a bunch of stuff.

Dear Applesukzz,

Thank you so much for your review! We only ask for ratings at most once per app update. Since the app is new, plenty of updates have been coming out recently. This will subside.
