Pretty good app But be aware that even with the subscription service you won't get the 5 Dan strength that Crazy Stone displays on KGS. Non-subscription version seems to play at 2-3 kyu sort of level on 19*19 and stronger on smaller boards. Rather predictable moves, small joseki repertoire and plays aji keshi kikashi like a 20 kyu. Can't always identity seki correctly. It also resigns too easily. Hopefully some of these issues could be addressed in future releases.
Excellent Strong engine but makes strange plays in the opening sometimes. Also, what was the latest update? No mention if it was bug fixes or the long awaited landscape mode which it was not....clue us in on what we are downloading ffs.
Plays at 2 kyu KGS at the highest android level with komi. Generally plays very quickly. Like most computers it doesn't care how much it wins by so it sometimes ignores a threat in the late game and will respond with dames that are unnecessary instead of protecting if it thinks it is ahead.
One of worst go apps out there The crazy stone engine is not bad, compared to GNU Go, but it's play style is still way too mechanic to be enjoyable. It always tries to win by smallest possible margin, resigning every time it starts to lose, doesn't punish obviously bad moves unless you choose the strongest level. On weak levels it mostly plays random moves and resigns at random, which is really boring. It always opens handicap games in exactly same way: If you play a 2 handicap game on 9x9 against it, it will always start by playing 4-4
This is the strongest go playing program on android. The interface however is awful: - very low resolution. Seeing a zoomed 600 pixel goban image on a on a device with 2000+ pixels will make you cry. - doesn't support screen rotation. - menu navigation does not make any sense.
Mixed WOULD IT KILL YOU TO ADD A "PLAY AGAIN" BUTTON? Seriously, having to navigate through several menus every time you start a new game is amateur hour. Other than that, it's OK.
