Description

Play the ancient game of Go against your iPhone or iPad. Starting with the empty board, your goal is to surround territory — the simple rules of Go lead to a complex and beautiful game. This 4000-year-old board game originating in China is also known as igo (囲碁), wéiqí (围棋), or baduk (바둑).

SmartGo Player includes a tutorial that teaches you the fundamentals of Go step-by-step. Each rule and tactic is followed by a number of problems that let you practice and fully grasp the concept.

If you enjoy strategy board games like chess or Othello, you'll love Go.

SmartGo automatically adjusts the handicap to keep the game challenging, for beginners as well as seasoned players. Start with 9x9, and unlock 11x11 and 13x13 as your play improves. With a strong engine based on the latest research into Monte Carlo techniques, this is the game to beat.

Features:

- 9x9, 11x11, 13x13, and 19x19 boards

- Strong game engine

- Fast response (adjustable)

- Automatic handicap adjustment on 9x9, 11x11, 13x13

2/5 stars

Warning: For absolute beginners only!

:
They boast a "Strong game engine" and don't deliver at all. I'm an average novice player and it doesn't challenge me at all on the hardest setting.

That said, for beginners the auto level thing and the rules walkthrough are good.

In the end I regret buying it for the false advertising thus the low rating.

3/5 stars

Ridiculous...

:
I'm a beginner, and I have no idea what people are talking about with "too easy". I can't get a single move in anywhere on the computer ever! It plays so hard against me it's ridiculous! I liked the tutorials but I would like it if you added an easier difficulty setter.

4/5 stars

Challenging

:
Of the games out there, this one is definitely one of the more challenging. I would love to see online play against other iPhone users. The AI loses it's challenge after awhile, plus I want bragging rights against my friends!
