I must admit I am not a games person, I find Solitaire
complicated : but Strike-A-Light got me hooked and with its superb graphics, ease of use
and challenge to your strategy skills I am sure it will do the same for you.
Strike-A-Light is a combination of Chess and Othello (or Reversi). You need to protect
your own Pieces whilst at the same time devising a form of attack on your
opponent's Pieces. The Lasers in Strike-A-Light provide the means to protect your Pieces
and attack your opponent. A simple rule of thumb is to cover as many Pieces as
possible (yours and your opponents) with your Lasers - but be careful of other
Lasers on the board. You may inadvertently set up a chain reaction that could
let your opponent win in the next move!
Features include Stunning 32 bit graphics and stereo sound. Play against the
computer. Nine difficulty levels to match your skill. Play against a friend
(also includes an easy to use play-by-email option). Full Undo / Redo of every
move in the game. Automatic and manual saving of games. Complete install and
Fully skinnable to suit your mood. Very reasonably priced and addictive game.
