App description: The Award Winning Laser Game: Khet 2.0 with Artificial Intelligence Engine by Don Dailey!

Mensa Select Award winning board game & Toy of the Year 2011 finalist as an App Now!

Powered by the Artificial Intelligence Engine by Don Dailey (developer of KOMODO world's leading Chess Program)

It's the game that combines lasers with classic strategy. Players alternate turns moving Egyptian-themed pieces having two, one or no mirrored surfaces. All four types of pieces (pharaoh, anubis, pyramid and scarab) can either move one square forward, back, left, right, or diagonal, or stay in the same square and rotate by a quarter twist. Each turn ends by firing the real laser diode built into each player's Sphinx piece. The laser beam bounces from mirror to mirror; if the beam strikes a non-mirrored surface on any piece, it is immediately removed from play. The ultimate goal is to illuminate your opponent's pharaoh, while shielding yours from harm!

This a great strategy game - the way you approach the game is extremely similar to chess, except that the ruleset for moving the pieces is a little easier to grasp. This can be one of the definitive "easy to learn, hard to master" games. I'm still learning the strategies involved with the game, but best I can tell, the AI is really good.

Kind of bummed that I picked up the iphone version last week - I had no idea how long an iPad version would be in development (and being a board game, feels more at home on an iPad). Wish that it was have been a universal app, especially at the premium price.

Yes - the developer could have been a bit more up front about the iPad version.

I'm a real fan of Chess. But Khet, this is fun... We can nicely visualize the laser movement and see the impact of our moves. And the UI looks really nice.

The Khet Master level is a real competition. I couldn't beat the device.

Looking forward to play with iPhone from my iPad.
