Sweet Reversi (PlayStation Minis) Review – Light and Fluffy

This is essentially the board game Reversi, also known as Othello, but played with macaroons instead of counters! It’s the only one of the three games that have a single-player option where you can play against the computer, as well as the two-player option. The game doesn’t do a very good job of explaining the rules of Othello, so I had to look them up on the Internet, but once you know how to play, it’s actually quite enjoyable, especially with two players.

Basically, the object is to move your macaroon so that it traps your opponent’s macaroon, or macaroons, turning all the trapped enemy macaroons into your macaroons. This can be done either vertically, diagonally or horizontally. Don’t worry if you can’t work out where to move at first, the computer highlights all your possible options, so all you have to think about is placing your macaroon where you can trap and collect as many of your opponent’s cakes as possible.

It’s all very light and fluffy stuff, but I love the sugary-sweet Japanese style graphics, and the gameplay is actually absorbing in short bursts, especially when playing with someone else, but it’s still not worth $1.99!
