Othello Killer

Othello, the game with rules that nobody understands, is now available on your ST. Each player takes turns to place a double-sided piece, black on one side and white on the other, on a board in such a way as to form a line horizontaly, vertically or diagonally with another of his pieces.

If there are pieces of the opposite colour inbetween, then you can turn these pieces over so that they become your colour. You then win those pieces. When the board is full or no player can continue, the winner is the person with the most pieces on the board.

Othello Killer offers you basic gameplay and a bit more - a robotic voice calling out whose move it is, for instance. Graphics and sound are simply functional, but if you're a member of the Engligh Obsessive Othello Club, it's a must.
