Go is an ancient Asian game that is now available for Android and is known for making its players think: "the ultimate thinking game".
First of all, take into account that the smaller the board is, the easier the game. Go is a territorial game for two players (black and white) where the goal is to protect each one's territory and at the same time, attack and capture the opponent's stones. The instructions are pretty long and detailed so if you don't really know how to play we recommend that you take a look at them.
You can always view the settings, which means that the board size, the rule set and the difficulty can be changed. There are three sizes available in the full version and 10 difficulty levels in total. The game can be quite hard to get the hang of it but once you get used to it, it's a very recommendable application for exercising the mind.

Would like to see better scoring and to have a daily download or dictionary for Joseki to help practice better moves for more advanced players
That said, it often has trouble determining life or death during scoring (especially seki). Also no landscape support.
The game sometimes incorrectly marks groups of stones as dead. Don't trust the scores it computes, you're better off scoring manually.
Don't buy it, just stay with go free. I played "go free" for a while and it was good, but free version only allow me play 60 hands, so I bought this full version, when I play with machine, the machine acted like baby beginner player, it already dead but s
Minor ko bug preventing perfectly legal move.
I liked Chess and Spades by AI Factory and was delighted to see Go. Nice implementation, like your other games.
