5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the board game 28 Jun. 2013

As the title says it plays just like the board game. Great fun playing the computer as it's virtually impossible to win on the highest level!

4.0 out of 5 stars A few flaws, but a challenging game. 8 Feb. 2014
By Tiger
Verified Purchase
Okay it's a draughts/checkers game, so visually, you're not in for many shocks. Having said that, it plays almost perfectly, with some nice sound effects to make you feel like you're moving real pieces. R

Flaws? Minor ones. Adjusting the difficulty level with a slider bar on a Kindle Fire is far from intuitive, and a simple 1-5 difficulty level select would have worked more easily and accurately. And it has an annoying habit of asking you after 40 moves without a piece being captured, if you'd like to call it a draw. Annoying because in a fast-paced game, not hitting the button, but moving a piece by mistake, make the option vanish and the game lock up, requiring a restart of the kindle to continue. And there's no way to turn that option off, which is a pain in a longer, tactical game.

But don't let that put you off this great little game. Your computer opponent is genuinely challenging on higher levels, and well programmed to avoid the usual traps you might like to use to capture it's pieces. It plays a nice, aggressive game, even at mid level of difficulty. Had it not been for the minor but annoying issues, I'd have given it a five-star rating. Recommended - especially as it's free, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive 24 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
This is fantastic. I always enjoyed playing straights when I was a kid. The downside was if I didn't have anyone
to play it with. Now it doesn't matter. I can try to outwit my Kindle.
Very enjoyable and it is possible to beat my Kindle sometimes.
