It’s like chess, but way less complicated.
It’s Checkers, to be more precise. You have most definitely played this before, so the rules are clear. Move your pieces one square at the time and try to jump over your opponent’s pieces. The graphics are fine (everything is clearly visible and makes sense), the controls are a bit slow (no biggie in this kind of game) and the cpu-opponent is no perfect mastermind, which makes for some nice, quick rounds. Overall one of the better titles on the system, but here is no 2-player-mode. Which makes absolutely no sense.
