Wow a twist on one of my faves. Looks quite intriguing.

Edit: Rather than double posting I wanted to add some impressions since of course I couldn't resist. The game is a unique take on the Reversi / Othello board game. It adds a new dimension in that there are a series of opponents you must face and beat. It plays well albeit a little laggy and has a bit of a lack of direction. The description mentions levels of difficulty based on your opponent but since it doesn't explain the level of your opponent (from what I can see) you might end up playing backwards. I chose one character to be without really knowing what would be any advantage or disadvantage to playing that character at the time and can choose any of the other leaders. I think it would be more effective and more fun if you had a progression of opponents to unlock. Each leader has 8 (I think) battles to conquer their land.

The interface is pretty intuitive and the graphics are a nice touch. Love the board pieces, though they look a little Chess like and not Othello like. It certainly is a different take on the game and if you are a fan of the game you should look into this. If you have not played Reversi or Othello before I couldn't find any instructions or tutorial to help you out. Since I have played a lot that wasn't a problem for me but if it is your first try at it maybe pick up a game with some more basics before delving into this.

I guess this one is not a multiplayer type, though I hope so. It could be of more fun, right?

No multiplayer that I can find. But the game puts more emphasis on the progression and conquering of countries and leaders. Doesn't honestly lend itself to multiplayer with this set up.

Okay thanks. Most reversi games I have played have offered a two player mode. Even as far back as Spot on the gameboy.

Hmm, I always liked Reversi. Adding this to my wish list.
