Ratings and Reviews
I was looking for a tough app that is suitable for my iPad. Found it. When you turn it to high level, you will give yourself a very smart opponent. I believe that the first 100 games provided 100 straight losses on high. My wife did all that she could not to laugh! Hell, you got to laugh at yourself, yes? As I continued I was getting closer to 4/2 and 3/1 which was my short term goal. As I played more the laughing turned to stone as I was determined to beat or at least, tie this app. I did start to tie about a month ago and I was elated. This went on for awhile and then I lucked out and won!!!!!! Only took 522 games! I don't win often but I think I'm learning a few things because when I go back an play previous apps, they seem much easier. This is the best app I've seen, by far. Smart little games is another great one but not in this app's class as of yet. But I must say I'm only on #3 setting. The problem with SLG is that it's slow. I'm thankful that I was able to find this app. Fun Fun Fun!
DISAPPOINTING! Game FROZE while playing against computer AFTER I HAD WON 307 GAMES IN A ROW! Algorithm is a sore loser! Too bad! What a shame! A good game would not freeze when the AI loses!
UPDATE: AI continues to be a sore loser and a cheater! Played game until won nearly 1000 games in a row when AI froze game again!
Installed App on iPad Pro: When AI has only five checkers remaining (during the 26th game while I still have all twelve including two Kings!), AI refuses to move and freezes the game. The AI is such as sore loser that it will not accept a draw and there is no way in which to force the AI to move. Again, after I have won every game, the AI freezes and refuses a draw! Why should I accept a loss when I am winning the current game and when I have won EVERY game!?! Shameful!
Even worse than the AI being a sore loser about NEVER having won a game only ANY of my iPads is that the App designers Optime Software have NEVER replied to my emails regarding the freezing of the App and the AI's refusing to move or accept a draw. I included screen captures as well as a description of the problems, yet I received NO RESPONSE from Optime Software!! BAD Customer Service, Optime Software!! Actually, that is NO RESPONSE means NO Customer Service!!! Shame on you, Optime Software!!! : (
This app is great, it is just like normal checkers but better! It always makes me mad when someone "accidentally" cheats. But that's where this game comes in handy, if it's not your turn you can't press on your checkers. If you press in your checker and them press a spot 3 or 4 spaces ahead, it will not let you. You don't have to set up another game when you're done with this it takes you to a brand new one right after you're finished. You can also pick which color check you want to be (black or red) and type in your name (imojis included!🙀) so have fun with this app. I'm picky about my apps and I give this one a thumbs up👍
