GoodCore Software has developed the classic Othello board game for the
Android platform. Othello is a board game involving abstract strategy
and played by two players on a board with 8 rows and 8 columns and a
set of distinct pieces for each side. Pieces typically are disks with a
light and a dark face, each side belonging to one player. The player’s
goal is to have a majority of their colored pieces showing at the end
of the game, turning over as many of their opponent’s pieces as
Modes of game
Our version of Othello works in multiple modes as described below:
In this mode, the user plays against the computer.
Two players (side by side)
In this mode, two players sitting next to each other play against each other using the same phone set.
Two players (via blue tooth)
In this mode, two players can pair their android phones via blue tooth and play against each other.
This game (also known as “Reversi”) has some versions already available in the Android market,
but none of the other versions allow to players to connect via blue tooth and play while using their
own Android phone sets like our version of the game.
