Interesting This app is fun. My level is similar to the 2d or 3d in the game and I enjoy playing with it. I hope there could be an option to change the marker for the last move. Currently it is a red circle, sometimes it makes me hard to read the patterns. It would be better if the user can select the marker and change its color. I also hope AI can learn when to resign. Sometimes AI is behind by 100 points but still does not resign.
The AI is surprisingly strong. Really impressed by how good it is in building moyo and using thickness. Close range fighting is sharp too, but I think sometimes it has trouble determine the life/dead status of big group. I played at the 1 dan level, been having great fun so far. Being able to take back move allowed me to try out different options which has helped in improving my game play.
Love the game. And having a sufficiently strong ai to be able to play on my smart phone is great. However every couple of weeks the game starts to crash every time i open it and i have to delete and reinstall it... I think thos might occur if my phone runs out of power while its thinking. Anyway quite annoying, but otherwise great app.
Super fun, but I do have a question! I love this app, and play against it multiple times weekly during this long stint where i am unable to go to the local go club due to work. I do have two questions, though; 1: Is this go engine an accurate measure of ability? I hope to know so I can get a gauge of how much im learning. And 2: does the engine depend on your phone to play as well as it can? By which I mean, would the ai play better on a "newer" phone?
Serious scoring bugs. The app uses the score estimator as the final scoring tool. If the final territory is large, the score estimator will omit a few points of territory. This often leads to the computer missing out on a few points. Also the estimator/final score does not handle some seki correctly. If one color completely surrounds another then the inner group is considered dead even though it's seki. Finally, the AI plays very poorly when lossing. It will not resign so you have to finish a nonsensical game to the very end or abandon the match.
It needs updates, especially for devices that have more than 4 cores. 3 Dan is good, but takes too long. Please keep the undo button! There is so many times when my phone reads my finger incorrectly and ends up placing the stone in the wrong spot
