ttention span: 8/10 Enough levels, but it gets boring after a while.
Controls: 10/10 The good ol' 2nd and arrows interface.
Implementation: 8/10 A great twist on Othello. Just those few problems I mentioned.
Overall: 9/10 A good game to play if you're not too smart for it.

Orbix is a game that is similar to Othello, with a few new twists. Rather than an eight by eight board, Orbix is played on a twelve by six board. Orbix does not allow diagonal "jumps" but does allow placing a piece next to one of your own without "jumping". It also has multiple levels, with the later levels having more and more blocking squares (squares where pieces can not be played and over which "jumps" may not be made).

I don't have much to say except that some people find it hard to play against the calculator. Support for different difficulty levels would be good. It would also be nice to allow the user to go back to the level they were at before they lost rather than making them start the whole game over again.
