Porthello Legends - Android Reversi Port

I wrote a clone of the game Reversi/Othello for Android three years ago and it actually made some progress on Google Play (Market as it was called then). It was downloaded nearly 1000 times and a lot of players seems to have enjoyed it because I could see in the highscore lists and the Analytics statistics that they spent quite some time on trying to beat the AI to gain access to even harder levels.

Unfortunately, the name Othello Legends was a bad choice since it was trademarked. That meant that after 6 months the game was suspended from Google Play. Since I put quite a lot of effort into the game it is a shame that it disappeared and I have now done a refactoring to the new name Porthello Legends :-).

My Android tablet died last summer and all I got to test with is an pretty old HTC Desire which the game seems to work fine on. It would be interesting to get feedback on how the game performs on newer phones/tablets as well.

Check out the game at Google Play, search for "Porthello Legends" or go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=se.noren.android.porthello&hl=en.
