Connect four dots in a row before your AI or human opponant
I think just about everyone had a Connect Four game lying around somewhere in their laundry room as a kid. When you grew tired of tic-tac-toe's predictability, the vertical orientation of Connect Four added mystery and intrigue, plus one more dot. Ojambo Four in a Row replicates this experience, except that instead of the snot-nosed neighborhood kid, you'll play against the computer, or a less mucus-afflicted human of your choosing.
There aren't any frills here. Connect Four is a success even with the youngest of tots; Ojambo doesn't add any hyper-mode nor hidden magic bonuses. There are no ways to level up nor coins to accumulate. The app won't keep track of your wins. There is no leaderboard.
What can you do? There are three different difficulty levels to assign to the AI, which do seem to play out more or less accurately during gameplay. On "easy," the computer lost in one, two, three, four moves, whereas "hard" felt like playing against that uncle who never lets you win. You can also choose whether or not to play background music, which I implore you to turn off if you value your sanity. The repetitive drum rolls that never reach an apex aren't enough to inject much novelty into this kids' game, but they are definitely sufficient to drive you batty.
It's not that Ojambo Four in a Row isn't worth a download if you're looking for a Connect Four replica - it fills that niche and fills it well. However, the abrasive music and the slipshod graphics definitely don't improve on the original experience.
