Ratings and Reviews
I never knew how much I had to learn about Othello! I’ve been playing against AI and am consistently challenged, even on the student level. Everything works as it should, making for a smooth and pleasant experience. And all for a reasonable price. I really appreciate the developer making it available with no ads/no subscription. It’s well worth the price, thanks!
A lot of other Othello / Reversi apps make spectacularly dumb moves that rob one of the pleasure of beating them, like making bad plays near the corners that they aren’t forced into. This one doesn’t, even at the easier levels. As a result it’s a lot more fun!
App freezes when Game Center is enabled
This is a great othello game , but lately the app freezes on launch if Game Center is enabled. Uninstalling the app and reinstalling may make it work for a game or two, but then it starts freezing again. Signing out of Game Center in the iOS settings resolves the issue, but I like to use Game Center. Please fix. Once you do, this app will get 5 stars. (Tried to email support from the app, but that does not work either)
Developer Response ,
This hang with Game Center has been fixed in SmartOthello 3.1.2, available now.
