[ app info=all ] iTunes link. [ /app info ]

Remove all the spaces to make it all work. Pretty simple. You game looks good. I used to play connect 5 all the time in math class. Quite a challenging game against good players.

Thank you again ^^.
My wish was to make a really strong AI. I worked on it long time... and I think I'm really successfull in the upcoming 1.1 update... it's a kind of magic to learn from the software (you made yourself) how to win: I just entered a lot of little piece of code, each one was a little personnal guess on "how to win" and finally... I got (I think) an unbeatable monster...

.. of course, it's "just" a simple "five in a row" AI, not the most difficult game in the world ^^.

I will give promo codes after the 1.1 update have been accepted.

I will be interested in this. I don't want to brag, but I have yet to find an AI for coonect 5 that I have not been able to beat. Doe the computer go first, or does it change back and forth?

OK ! If some people can say the AI is unbeatable (maybe it's not but after more than 500 (surely more) games against and... only 1 victory (I don't know how I managed to do it)) it would be a great commercial !

Do you already own an iPad or are you planning to play on a friend's one ?

ps: the update have been submited wednesday, I think it will available next thursday. The sole difference between the current version and upcoming one is the strength of AI in Devil mode

I own an iPad. Although I don't think I would have the patience to play 500 games.
