No complaints until it disappeared


My only wish was that it kept track of results. But that seems even more minor, since now I wish I could get more than a black screen. I was starting a game, an ad appeared (which happens every other game, but I'm OK with that) and when I closed it, the screen went black, except for a small display ad at the bottom. I guess I'll give it a little while to correct itself, and if nothing happens, I'll delete the app. I enjoy the game, but what's the point of keeping it if all it does is show a black screen with an ad for dermatology cream?

Fast and smart AI - worth paying to get rid of ads


I’ve been playing Othello on this app for a few years and have played something like 10,000 games on it. This is a great version of Othello to build up some serious skill over time. I’ve beaten up to Level 22 both black and white without hints, undos, or handicaps. The AI is reasonably quick on iPhone SE and even faster on iPhone X. Great for a quick thinking game. Once the game is over, you can review your moves (just can’t undo them).

Best Othello AI yet. PERIOD.


If you want to get good at this game TS is the app to learn from.

The only con is that sometime the AI "thinks" way longer than it should need to when the best move is plainly obvious. I say this because I see it and long before the AI moves I'm yelling, "THERE!!!!! RIGHT THERE!!!!!" And then it eventually does move RIGHT THERE.

To the guy complaining the game is making you pass, I know it's been a long time but this might be helpful to others reading these reviews:

Passing in Othello is not a choice. You MUST pass if you have no possible moves, and that does happen. So that is not a glitch. The game is supposed to do that.
