The players proceed to strategically reverse the disks in their favor until both players have no more legal moves to make.

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyed the game, especially the ability to play others, but found the incredible number of lost connections and the obnoxious ads that continually launch the App Store without permission (and interrupt the game or cause lost connections) very frustrating. It happened extensively on WiFi and seemed to be linked to the ads. So I began playing exclusively in cell service. That helped, but lost connections and rogue ads were still a problem. It got so bad that to play, I would restrict my phone to prevent the App Store from launching. This helped, but same issues persisted. After months of this, I’ve grow tired of having the same issues and the company not addressing this so I am deleting the app for good.
Hi SailTX! Thank you for your feedback. Regarding the first issue - if you have turned on the auto-update function in your device settings, updates will be installed automatically which will happen for all apps that you have. The game indeed is different, mainly because it is using a new game engine. In terms of looks you could customize it through the settings to make it look similar to the old version by choosing the wooden board and pebbles as play stones. As far as the crashes go - we are investigating the issues. About 10% of the users are experiencing crashes and we are actively working on fixing the ones that appear the most. For now, the only thing you can try to do is closing some apps in the background for better stability. We are sorry for the inconvenience and your bad experience with the game. / Update: First of all let me thank your for your rating adjustment. The servers are still being updated to improve stability (but only small updates at a time) but it's still very interesting that you seem to have less problems when not using wifi. It might also have to do with the ads -
we only offer ad spaces for networks so we don't serve the ads ourselves but I know that some ads will only be shown on wi-fi (because they are heavier or the advertiser chose to do so for other reasons). We have little to no control over the ads but faulty ads can happen and while they will usually be taken care of within a few days they will still cause crashes for some people. We'll definitely keep looking into it with our developers and got some new ideas from your review so thanks again!
Disconnections = losses
I really love Othello. When the AI was not challenging enough, I decided to play online. However almost half of my games have gotten disconnected and registered as losses. As a matter fact I "lost" 9 out of my last 12 games online, even though I had control of the board headed for a win every time. Please do something about this as it is really frustrating.
Online gaming won’t work
I got this app about a week ago and it was doing really well connecting to other players and getting the game moving, but it can’t find any players anymore. I thought there was a problem with my phone only, but my friend can’t play online either. It’s a really good app though, so it would be really nice if they would find the problem and fix it.
Hi U.S. LINE user! Thanks for your feedback. We already received some more reports like yours on this issue and are working on resolving it. The server doesn't show any anomalies however we also can't play online currently. Our developers are looking into it at the moment! / Edit Jul 10,2018: The online mode should be working again as our developers found and fixed the problem yesterday!
