othello board game for GPE
Othello is also known as Reversi. gpe-othello is a
strategic boardgame for the GPE Palmtop Environment
which involves play against a handheld computer on
an eight-by-eight square grid with pieces that have
light and dark faces.
The player places light-faced pieces so that there is
at least one straight (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal)
line between the new piece and another light piece, with
one or more contiguous dark pieces between them. Pieces
captured in this manner are turned over and can be used
in later moves. The winner has the most number of pieces
showing the appropriate face when the grid is full or when
the other player has no pieces of their own colour left.
