Zen Reversi is a turn-based board game played against the computer. The game is also known as Othello. The players have chips of different color (black and white) and the objective of the game is to fill the board with your own chips. You should place your chips in the extremes, so that all the chips in between are turned to your color. The game shows all the possible places to put your chip with a star, but you have no help. The game requires a lot of concentration in order to select the right move.
At the top of the board, you can see how many chips of the two colors are on the board. From the Preferences menu, you can select the difficulty level and your chips color. You can also adjust the music and sounds volume from there. Unfortunately, there is only one board layout available, graphics are simple and the music is pleasant, but a bit repetitive. It would be great if you could play against another human player locally.
To sum up, if you like this kind of board games that make you think, I suggest you try Zen Reversi.
