REX is an addictive strategy board game from the makers of ICBM!
Players take turns moving one piece at a time, removing their opponent’s pieces when they land on them. The goal is to clear your opponent's pieces from the board.
There are eight devious computer-controlled opponents to defeat, or you can play head-to-head against a friend!
REX features over an hour of music composed by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Grieg, Haydn, Mozart and Vivaldi.

Ratings and Reviews
The genius of this game is the game itself. Can someone create a game so simple and yet as elegant as chess itself? Is this game an original invention by the developer? Masterpiece does not do it justice. Also the presentation and game development is well done. This is a treasure of the App Store, and the creators have something very special here. Congratulations.

Wonderfully polished game
Simpler game of chess but more complex than checkers. Thought I'd easily be able to master it but after a few hours of play the AI has been demolishing me at apprentice difficulty. That's not even close to hard. Definitely recommend this as a quick game to hop on and play in-between daily activities.
