Tic Tac Toe Master is one app you should check out if you are a fan of the original classic strategy game Tic Tac Toe. This app has a few different features from that of the original game which add value and difficulty. We all know how to play Tic Tac Toe so we will not go into detail on how the game goes. Instead we will mention some features that make this app unique.
The biggest difference in this app is the playing field. While regular Tic Tac Toe only uses a 3 x 3 square board, Tic Tac Toe Master uses 8 squares wide by 10 squares high. This changes the gameplay by not only making the game time longer, but also making it much more challenging. With more moves and combinations to make, you really have to think out your next move carefully or the computer will defeat you in no time flat! The object is to connect 5 X’s vertically, horizontally, or across to win. We found ourself playing defense quite a bit to guard against the computer AI, (which has and easy, medium, and hard mode to select from). Included sound effects and music add to the overall experience, which can be switched ON or OFF in the option menu. The graphics are decent, but nothing to rave about and the game is responsive to the touch.
The developer has mentioned a few possible updates that include an undo option, Global high score tables and a 2 player mode for the network as well as bluetooth. Tic Tac Toe would benefit mostly with a 2 player mode. As of now you can only compete against the computer, and while the computer is actually quite challenging, its the 2 player mode that’s really missing in this release. If the developer adds in these suggested updates then the app will be a solid one that’s sure to be a winner. But if you love the concept of the original Tic Tac Toe, don’t wait for the updates! Pick up Tic Tac Toe Master today from the App Store and discover the added bonus of playing the game on a larger field.
