Square-Off is a strategy game from School Zone that helps with focus, cognitive development, spatial reasoning, and problem-solving skills. It’s great for young learners and fun for all ages!
Compete with a friend in two-player mode or play against a built-in opponent. Choose from three levels of play for added challenge. The goal is to complete the most squares. Players take turns placing a line (vertical and horizontal lines only) between adjacent dots. Touch between the dots to add a line. With one-person play, make the first move, and the app’s built-in opponent moves immediately after. The line it adds will continue to blink until your next move. It takes four lines to make a square. Be careful, so your human or electronic competitor doesn’t add the fourth line! An “ownership” icon will appear in each square, depending on who completes the fourth line. The score indicator at the bottom of the screen shows which player’s turn is next. The game continues until all the squares are completed, and the winner is the player with the most squares. Choosing “Play” at the end of a game shuffles the puzzle for a new challenge and the opportunity to improve. Names and scores get tracked in the player Hall of Fame. Beat your last score with the next game, and move up in the ranking!

Should have Two Player Option
This game should have a two player option, not just the player vs. the iPad option. Part of the fun of some of the iPad apps out there is being able to play and teach with a small child.
It's a cute game, but others like this for the iPhone are better. My niece likes it, but finds it boring quickly. It's too easy for an adult.

I like this game because you can get every single square. I play against my mommy, my cousin, and myself! You should get this app to entertain yourself.
Love love love this. Perfect for my 7 and 4 yr old boys. They can even play against each other. My oldest and I play this on paper all the time. Now I just pull out my iPhone. Did I mention it's perfect?!
