Rockin Reversi is a cute game. I love the wording of the instruction manual. It sounds like it is geared more towards the younger crowd.
There are three levels: easy, medium, and hard. I beat all of them fairly quickly. You just need to “make a sandwich” around the opponent’s pieces, as the manual says. You win the game once you capture all of your opponent’s pieces, or fill the board with the most pieces.
Rockin Reversi also has a multi player option. So, you can play with your family and friends. The game is so much more fun that way.
Overall, Rockin Reversi was easy to navigate. The 5-way toggle button went a bit crazy on the board at times, but it fulfilled the purposes by selecting the squares I needed. The pieces are clearly defined.
The only things that were a little more difficult to read were the tips and other side notes. They might could be in a more readable font, but I didn’t pay too much attention to them anyway.
Unlike Reversi Deluxe, Rockin Reversi doesn’t have dots to tell you where to put your pieces. I didn’t think this made a huge difference in my ability to play the game.
“I knew this game as Othello when I was growing up. I used to play it with my beloved Uncle when we were on vacation at my Grandparents cabin in Minnesota. I remember spending the evening bent over the board game on one side of the table, while he was on the other, discovering the “secrets” to winning the game, together. With the wonderful memories I had of the game, this was one of the first games I bought when I got my new kindle! I’ve played it a few times already, and love the looks of the game on my kindle, and it wasn’t hard to figure out how to get started which made it nice since I’m still new with my kindle. Thanks for making this wonderful game available to play when I don’t want to read, this way I can play it, even if I can’t find someone else to play it with me now!! :)”
Rockin Reversi is now compatible with the latest generation keyboardless Kindle.
