Don't worry if your computer beats you at checkers; you can always beat it at kickboxing (thanks, Emo Philips!). Hone your double-jump skills in Pavel Porvatov's All-In-One Checkers, wherein you can play more than 30 varieties of the game against either a CPU or a friend (or your mom, you know).
The layout's just like you'd expect - a standard checkers board wherein you must jump your pieces across the board in the timeless struggle to eliminate the pieces of the opponent. Select whether you'd like to play against the CPU (with an intelligence of your choice, from "novice" to "professional") or a human (on the same device). The automatic game is classic checkers, but there are zillions of varieties to choose from, most of which I have no idea what they are: "gothic," "laska," "stavropol," and "crowded," among many others.
The visuals are customizable and actually quite well done. There's nothing complicated or impressive about checkers boards, but they're smooth and pleasing to play on. Controlling the pieces is intuitive and looks great.
The one thing that would really make the app score big would be the ability to play versus other players over the cloud - there's something pleasing about that which you just can't get out of a CPU experience. I'd also really like a brief description of what all the different varieties are, so that I know how to choose from amongst the 30.
Still, Pavel Porvatov's All-In-One Checkers is a great choice for checkers fans of any age.
