This is an extremely well-designed app that demonstrates how a great number of grid-based board games could be adapted for VoiceOver play -- chess, checkers, sudoku, Othello, etc. I strongly recommend this game for anyone who likes spatial games and puzzles. The Easy (8X8) level is generally a sufficient challenge for me. The harder levels can be fun as well, but I have to admit that I haven't been able to win at either of them... The beginner may want to start out by turning on the coordinates announcement feature (in the settings) until you get a feel for the game board. I can think of a few features that might improve this game, but the game is already quite good, and dangerously addictive. Enjoy!

I just downloaded this game yesterday, fun game. I wonder what features the fellow above me thinks will make the game better? I shan't even try it on hard because easy is hard enough. Hopefully I will graduate to medium in time.
