Projects / Hinversi


Hinversi is a implementation of Reversi (a.k.a. Othello), a board game in the style of Go. It can support many frontends and backends, so you can select how clever your computer opponent is, and whether you like to play using the console or a GUI. You can also let one AI engine play against another one.

    Release Notes: The notation of the coordinates has been corrected. There is also a new frontend, which can be used as a reversi CGI backend. The frontend can be used to make single Othello moves with a given AI engine using any board setup.

            Release Notes: The command line interface was fixed. Due the gcc optimization, the CLI became useless.

            Yes and no. They are similar, but they are not the same game. Chess and Dame/Mule are neither the same game nor similar. But by Go and Othello you have to put new stones in the board, so they are both put-stone-games... both are also very old games. If some one likes Go, he will probably like Othelo and Vice-Versa.
