Trommy is a fun board game for one or two players, featuring smart AI and nice graphics. Similar to Othello or Reversi, your goal is to have more stones then your opponent at the end. There are two types of moves you can make: jump, and clone. Jumping is when you move a stone over one tile; all of the opponents' stones that lie adjacent to your stone's new location will become yours. Cloning is when you move a stone to an adjacent empty tile – this will 'clone' a new stone for you. Two players take turns making moves until either a player no longer has any stones to move, or has no legal moves.

While Trommy is not particularly innovative, it is a very fun game that offers excellent AI – it took me many tries to beat the computer, and I still cannot beat it consistently. Coded for Windows, the graphics are also very pleasant to look at, in 16-bit 1024x768 resolution, and the background music is also very nice. You can also play against a friend, and change the size of the playing field as well as the stones' colors. If you like turn-based abstract board games, Trommy will prove a surprisingly playable and addictive game. Two thumbs up!
