Decent game, but, I think you should stick on the original rules of Othello(It's a good game, overall) :)


Rated 3 / 5 stars

If you want to use the Othello rules there are a few changes. First, you can't pass your turn. The only way that will happen is if you are unable to place a disc. Second, black has the first move, but at least you placed the starting discs correctly with black at top right and bottom left. Third, if no one is able to make a legal move, the remaining squares are awarded to the current leader (winner), such that all matches have a sum of 64. Also, it's customary, but not regulated as far as I remember, to have a green background.
Also, the banner with "It's your turn" interferes with my placing of a disc, which gets a bit annoying after a while. The "Hard" setting is not really hard, but an example on how to make a good Othello-AI without traversing the entire space of moves are available here, I think:

good game concept, but there were some bugs (Like when the cpu put down 2stones in a row.) But, the bugs weren't common.

We tought we had found all the bugs... sorry about that.

I play it and can't find the bugs, maybe is some problem with the flash player version because It's written in Action Script 2.0 ??

Some bugs/issues

Sometimes, stones won't turn into my color & the CPU hangs sometimes.
But: Nice ambient sound and nice simple gamedesign. If you can fix the bugs, the game will be great!

A decent game of reversi

Although I have to admit, the easy mode is very easy, as the AI seems to be letting get the moves. Then again, I rarely win even against AI so that could be good for me. Like the choices in music and the graphics get the job done. Hope you got an A.

And yes, got an A, thanks!! =)

Well, the easy mode is kind like playing random so you can figure the game out.
medium is like playing with the programmer (who is a newbie in that game)
and hard is like playing with the prigrammer using some strategy
in this case the AI is at the level of the programmer, that's why it's so easy.
