What's New

Version 1.4

The step between the level Easy and the level Medium was too high.
So I added an intermediate level, and I called it... Intermediate !

Exciting and soothing at the same time


I'm new to oware but I'm already addicted to this app! The game itself provides the thrill -- but my real love of this app in particular comes from the graphics and sound. The rhythmic sound of the ticking stones as they drop into piles is soothing. I love that it's uniform stones versus different colored beads -- it makes the counting easier. The tutorial also helped a lot.

this game is hard...


I was able to beat beginner and easy pretty quick, but I beat medium maybe one out if 20 times. I wish there was some more useful strategy info online.

But the game and program are awesome!

One feature I would love to see is the ability to go back through a game to find out where I went wrong.

Awesome game!!


I play it every chance I get. It really is cerebral, especially the hard level.
The game will benefit from an "Undo" button. Really, it will.
That's the only real drawback I see.
Need more people playing it online. Have tried in vain the past 3 weeks (since installing) to match up with someone online.
