Submitted by Jacob Mastel on January 5, 2011 - 9:38pm

logoTick5 Portable 1.0 has been released. Tick5 is an implementation of the board game known as gomoku, omok, piskvorky or wuziqi. With a 15x15 board, Tick5 is an extended 5-in-a-row version of Tic-Tac-Toe. It's packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Suite. And it's open source and completely free.

Read on for more details... Platform 2.0 Beta 5 users who already have this app installed, simply click 'Check for Updates' in your PA.c Menu to update to the new version.



Your precious game won't be lost, it can be saved into a file instead. You can save a game and, later on, either resume it or review it. The size of the saved game is tiny (less than 1KB), you even can play the game with your buddies via e-mail by sending the file back and forth. If you are new to this game, you can use Tick5 as a learning tool. You can get a hint from the built-in AI player if you cannot figure out what's next move, undo moves if you find you made a mistake, and review the game by stepping through the all moves and analyze why you win or lose.

I thought this was a GO game and I was really excited but it's similar. Maybe there will be a release for one like GO soon

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving isn't for you.

in the game and in the icon. I thought Othello was played in the squares, while GO is played on the lines.

Game is great though. Biggrin

Though the name is weird. Biggrin

Don't be an uberPr∅. They are stinky.

After playing the game, I discovered this is NOT a Reversi/Othello clone. It's more like the game Connect Four that's played vertically with checkers, but you need to get five of your Reversi/Othello/Go colored disks in a row before your opponent.
