Play tic-tac-toe on your Palm
- Freehand mode
- No one-player mode
- Gets boring quite quickly
One of my favourite ways of avoiding learning anything at school was to play noughts and crosses, or "tic-tac-toe" as it's more commonly called, with whoever happened to be sat next to me in class.
I may not have grown up to become an airline pilot like I wanted to, but at least I can draw three crosses in a line on a grid quicker than most people.
The game comes with two different modes: 'normal', which allows you to choose a nought or a cross from a pull-down menu, or 'freehand' where you can doodle onto the board yourself.
Personally I feel that the first option is for squares and nerds, and that the second method offers a more authentic gaming experience.It's fun for a while but ultimately Advanced Tic-Tac-Toe is a pretty pointless download.
For one there's no one player mode, so you can only have a game when someone else is around. Besides, what's wrong with the good old fashioned pencil and paper method?I guess if you're doing your bit to save paper, Advanced Tac-Tac-Toe is useful, but the lack of one player mode means that you probably won't use it much.
