tic tac toe, naughts and crosses


Noughts and Crosses or as it is called in America, Tic Tac Toe, is a game for two people, in which players take it in turns to mark a box with either a nought or a cross on a 3x3 grid. The aim is to make a full line (either vertical, linear, or diagonal) before your opponent blocks you off.

The android version of this game is available in two skins. One is ancient paper on a wooden board, while the other looks like papyrus strung round bamboo.

Although you cannot play against people online, you can play with your friend by passing the tablet round. For me, unless you are playing while travelling on transport, if you want to play with a friend, then you might as well play with a pencil and paper.

The app game is good, however, if you don't have anyone to play with, because you can then battle against the computer. There are four difficulty modes, - easy, medium, hard, and expert - which is good in theory, but is a bit of a let down in terms of execution.

There is nothing wrong with the easy and medium levels, but hard and expert the winner is pre-determined before you even start. On the hard level, it is only possible to win if it is your turn first, which means you have already automatically lost at 50% of the games you play. In expert level, it is literally impossible to beat the computer, which begs the question, what's the point?

The levels should be challenging, not unbeatable, as it is meant to test your logic skills, and help you improve.

I can recommend this game in medium mode, but otherwise it is far better to find a physical opponent, grab a pen and paper, and play the old fashioned way.
