Two player games are few and far between - where is the "add to favourites" link?

This is a pretty clever two-playerable game, but there are a few serious flaws with the AI on some levels. On level 8 I was in a vulnerable position in which the AI could take nearly all of my pieces with a jump, but instead it stared jumping back and forth between two useless positions as I slowly moved up and took all of its pieces.
A good game to play with a friend; but maybe not so much the AI.

Love it! I'm tempted to print some of the maps and make it a board game with friends :)

I also got the AI doing some silly things like losing in 2 moves in one of the smaller maps.

Cool. I'd be curious to learn how far back this idea goes: the basic mechanic is exactly the same as a Mac game I was playing way back in the '90s, though that version had only a single 7x7 square board and a few levels of AI.

abfdrumz: The basic idea seems to go back to 1988.

The way the variously-shaped cells abut is a nice new twist.

Eric is quite handsome, but Mr. Underwood misspelled "allure".

I didn't know it went back quite that far. I have only ever seen the core gameplay concept in one game before, Thromulus on the Amiga in the 90's. It was only ever played on a small grid of squares though. I figured that it would be nice to resurrect and extend it, since I hadn't seen anything else like it in well over 20 years and I kind of missed playing it!

As for AI flaws, that's deliberate early on. No point beating up new players with smart AI, they'll just give up and play something else. If you want a full challenge, grab the mobile version and try the extreme AI mode. Much trickier.
