“The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on.” – Ulysses S. Grant (War Expert)
What's New in Version 1.01
Reverted to the original Checker Board theme
Fun to play... But...
There are two problems. First of all, the controls are a bit problematic. All too often i try to throw my piece, and it does nothing, yet takes up my turn.
Secondly, until you've won a match, you can lose on the first turn. Then you let the computer go first. I lost several times, not because of poor playing, but because i never got to go.
Fix It, and you get that last star. Otherwise, its just great gameplay, cool visuals... And a slightly flawed execution.
Two Thumbs Up
I absolutely love this game! It's a real gem! The Kids, ages 11 to 16 that I teach, are addicted to it! They love to battle one another, and they even try challenge me...poor saps, cause I always crush them! What an evil teacher I am! ;-)
Not bad I guess...
It's not checkers, it's like shuffleboard/puck shot on a checkers board. Game play isn't that intense, but it's a well made game. No bugs, but no real thrill. Worth checking out since it's free.
