"Reversing color"

Reviewed by / Jul 29, 2011

Try to enclose your opponent's pieces and change them to your color

Reversi for Android is an application that allows you to play this popular challenging game: Reversi.

The instructions are the following: use the touch screen, trackball or keyboard to make a move. Black and white pieces take alternate turns placing them on the board so the opponent's pieces become enclosed (changing then the color). The game finishes when a player has the most pieces of his color and no more moves are possible.

This puzzle game is definitely a challenge because it's not easy or simple: you need to move the pieces strategically and predict your opponent's moves. This app works perfectly well, includes seven different levels and the possibility of undoing the moves, so it's a pretty good one. Aart Bik is the creator of Reversi for Android and other checkers and chess applications also available in the market. If you're a fan of Reversi or want to take more challenges and exercise your mind, be sure to check it out and try beating the machine.

Developer's original description available here
Reversi for Android consists of a reversi engine and a GUI. The application accepts moves through the touch screen, the trackball, or through the keyboard. An optional "move coach" shows all valid moves as ghost stones and highlights the new and flipped stones after each engine move. An undo feature can take back up to eight half-moves to correct mistakes. The engine plays at various levels (including random and free-play). The user can play either side.

    hTC One Max phone: previous versions work great but this version freezes after first game. No buttons to start new game. Would install again if fixed.

    They only have expert level on here so unless you're an expert at playing you don't have a chance and even coming close to winning so you can never progress in your own skill level the game is stupid they need to make different skill levels for different people I am by no means a beginner I play the game 20 times in a row and lost horribly each time if they're going to put a skill-based game up he

    Only a bug when exiting... Sometimes the player color toggles.

    Plays a mean game at every level, other than the very first. Highly addictive.
