Checkers's review

    Published: 2011-08-05, by Peter Warrior.

    A correct checkers game.

    • Free, well done
    • No online playing.

    "Do you say huffed or blown?"

    Magma Mobile, a developer specialized in casual games couldn't miss the opportunity to release an app to play one of the most played game ever: Checkers (or Draughts, if you're on the other shore of the pond).

    In fact, there were a lot of checkers games suited for mobile devices since the very dawn of mobile phones. This Magma Mobile version has some improvements, though. Graphics are quite elaborate, far better than those CGA graphics this kind of games use us to. The user interface is clean and there's even an "undo" option just in case we dragged a wrong piece. Games can be played against a reasonable AI or against a friend next to you. May it be someday those guys at Magma allow to play their games via web.

    The best point of MM's Checkers is the option to adjust the rules, specially about huffing. The best way to avoid a "in home we play this way" argument. Therefore, if you love playing Checkers and have no time to test all related apps, we would advise it.

    Addictive Hours ahead of you!

    Checkers is a simple but challenging board game involving strategy and played by two players on a 6x6, 8x8 or 10x10 board game. Thanks to this Android version, you can take this classic version of Checkers with you on the go

    One player has dark pieces, and one player has light pieces. They take turns moving their pieces. Players move their pieces diagonally from one square to another square. When a player jumps over their opponent's (the other player's) piece, he takes that piece from the board. By default a potential piece will have to be taken but you can set custom rules and disable this rule.

    The player's goal is to take all the pieces of its opponent.

    With this version of Checkers (also known as Draughts) , you can play with a friend who sits next to you or play against your phone. We have included various options which will let you create custom rules accross different board games

    The artificial intelligence embedded in the game allows a player to play a very easy mode but also much harder and challenging modes.

    Will you be able to beat the most difficult level designed ?
