One of my favourite things about playing Connect Four was releasing all the counters from the grid at the end of a game. While that is understandably missing from the tablet version, Connect Four
for the Android is just as much fun as the original.
Although you cannot play against people online, if it is a choice between that and playing against someone in the room, I would pick the latter. With Pass n' Play mode, you can do just that. Decide which colour you want to be, then hand the tablet back and forth when taking turns.
If you haven't got anyone to play with, then test your skills against the computer, which has ten difficulty levels. And unlike with a lot of games, you can really tell the difference between each level.
In level one, the computer won't block any of your counters, in level two, it will block occasionally. Levels 3 - 6 will get you thinking, and levels 7 and 8 are challenging, and levels 9 and 10? I wish you luck.
All your results are saved, and you can see how well you do on each level. It will really help you improve your game, by making you think more about your strategy.
