This is the most unexpected and awaited at the same time event for me. Gobblet-like game is available in the Android Market! Since I’m a happy owner of SGS smartphone I’m really happy to find this game for my device :)

The game looks exactly the same as StackEm for Apple that we reviewed recently. It even has the same name StackEm.

Here is the video review of the StackEm for Android:

As you see game board looks exaclty the same. And there are only slight differences in the menu. But what is more interesting, this game is made by another developer. It has completely different algorithms and AI behaviour is not the same as for Apple edition. And this is great to my mind. How do you think?

So, the key features of the version 1.0 are:

  • Single-player mode against a computer player with three levels of difficulty
  • Multiplayer mode (local to the device) with both normal and heads-up display modes
  • Multiple board and piece color schemes

I’m sure this is just the beginning and game developer continue working on the game. At least I hope so :)

  1. Hi. This is my game. :) You are right that the iPhone and Android versions are different. The graphics and the game play concepts are the same, but the entire codebase is completely different (the AI being the most obvious part).

    Thanks for the review! I’m glad you enjoy the Android game…it’s my first release. And yes, there are more features coming, including an ever-harder AI and (hopefully) the ability to play against other people over the network.

  2. Thank you for your comment. It is honor to get the info at hirst hand.

    Network play is really a great feature to add! I have a Connect4 game on my SGS with network play. And it is great, because it is far from challenging AI :)

    BTW, about the AI. My 5yrs old kid has moved to hard level today :) In a day or two he’ll be beating AI almost every game :)

    Merry Xmas and Happy New year!

  3. Tic-Stack-Toe, is another Android app version of this game. It supports playing
    Locally against another person
    Locally against several levels of AI
    Over the network against friends or other players anonymously

    It also support using the ELO ranking system to keep track of your rank against other players and the AI.
