"A challenging game that will amaze you"

Reviewed by / Sep 20, 2011

A Physics two players game.

OLO is a minimalist two-player game of skill and strategy. It's somewhat a marble battle, where you have to put your own pieces, called "olos", in your end zone at the same time you prevent your opponent to do so. Its main strategy factor is that there can be a limited number of olos in play at once and that there are three kind -or weights- of them. Easy to learn, hard to master, fitted both for children and grown-ups.

OLO requires no permissions. It has no ads and it's free to play. Although Android 2.2 or higher is needed, it only weights 62k (instructions are read following a link to olo's website though).

We like games that can be played by two players on a single device. Games as OLO are perfect to have your children entertained in a long road journey or during a traffic jam, or to bet who will take out the trash. Moreover, it encourages strategy without violence. Lovely game, great idea, well done job. Maybe it didn't need to be graphically so simple and it could have some type of music or sound, so let's give it a high, but not the highest, rating in honor of its originality and fun.

OLO has been developed with love by Sennep, a London-based interactive design studio with a passion for playful design and new technologies.

It has been developped as a web app and converted to a native Android app to enhance the playing experience. Unfortunately some Android devices, including tablet PCs, do not support hardware acceleration for CSS translation. This will unfortunately cause performance lags.

    The apple version (I've played this on the iPad) is awesome. However, in the adroid version, the gameplay is weak at best, as when you try to move around the shooting area half the time they don't follow your finger so the game takes them back and you can't shoot then. The other half it'll let you shoot, but the puck will only go a few inches no matter how hard you push it. Fix this problem and I

    The iOS version unfortunately blows this away. According to the developer's website they ceased work on Android and are only focusing on iOS... which is why this version sucks so bad. It's seriously horrible. I know you don't believe me but after you download and install it, you'll agree. Uninstalled.

    Rather boring. Didn't capture my imagination at all. I understand that it's supposed to be a minimalistic game... but it was really lacking. Tic tac toe has more appeal! When it crashed for the first time I uninstalled.

    This is the perfect game to play with a friend to pass the time while waiting for food at a restaurant or something. Thanks to Starbucks for making this the recommended app of the week.
