Good but needs improvement
I like playing checkers. It would be nice if I could block certain players from playing with me. Some just start a game and then never play again or they just end it after one or two moves. It is the same players.
Napoleonbambo just started 21 games with me then ended right away. This is a waste if my time. I want to block this one.
After reading many reviews of how strong this program's AI was I decided to give it a try. I wanted a program that could give me at least a fair challenge.
What a total waste of time. I realize this is not an app for a desktop, which has a lot more resources and computing power, still there is no challenge whatsoever, even on the highest difficulty setting.
I suppose if you want to play versus a human the game may have some value, but other than that it's very disappointing.
Overall it's great
My one complaint is that it does the same opening move (one in particular) that leads to it's eventual defeat every time. Mind you it took me awhile to figure it out but now I can beat it every time at level five difficulty. Other than that the AI is very challenging and very creative at times.
