TinyGo

TinyGo

For the reader who requested a Go game, here’s TinyGo.

It allows you to play and review Go board game files in Smart Game Format (SGF) and has four modes: play, review, score and problem solving.

I’m not a Go player but Tiny Go seems playable on my i776. The only problem I noticed is that once you start a game there’s no way to get back to the main menu to change modes or save the game.

Keys:

PLAY MODE

  • #: switch Play/View/Score mode

PLAY AND SCORE MODES

  • 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9: move cursor
  • 5: place stone
  • *: undo, new move makes variation

VIEW MODE

  • 1,3: prev/next 10 moves
  • 1,3(held): first/last move
  • 4,6: prev/next move
  • 7,9: prev/next variant fork
  • 2,8: prev/next variant
  • 5: switch to Play mode
  • *: remove current stone

PROBLEM SOLVING MODE

  • #: switch solution hint
  • Other controls are as in the Play mode

    Nice graphics, but have not been able to find anyway to program this to be played by
    the computer against me. Each move can only be made by me. I have gone into various
    option menu screens, including on the main beginning board setup, hitting the soft left
    and right directional keys, one opening up a play mode which did not indicate any option
    for player choice. I use an LG 420G. All information and game board is visible but nothing
    that resembles the easy human/computer interaction play with other simpler games.
