5/5 stars
The best go AI

:
Most go games are based on gnu go and play like a computer. Most top out at 5k range.

I think this game uses the many faces of go engine and plays similar to that of real opponent decisions. I'm a 2d igs player and still can lose to the AI in a 9x9 game.

I literally have purchased all go and baduk apps for iPhone and iPad. This is hands down the best

2/5 stars
Not great

:
The AI seems very good but there are a number of minor annoying things that make playing Go with iGowin more frustrating than fun.

- There is no landscape mode.
- The placement zoom circle is fairly slow to pop up.
- There is only one undo allowed. It has happened that while placing a stone with my index finger, I accidentally brushed my thumb on the board and it placed a stone there. Then the computer quickly played, and then lifting my index finger registered a second play. But, only one undo is allowed so I'm stuck with the accidental thumb click. Due to the nature of the input device (the iPad), and how I use it (in bed), accidental touches are common. This could be solved either a) if a finger is down placing a stone, don't allow a second finger to register, or b) allow multiple levels of undo. If the author wants to protect the integrity of the ranks given by this software (like anyone really cares), then they can allow a setting where multiple levels of undo are available but that game won't count toward the player's ranking.

4/5 stars
Gaining skill!

:
I have been playing at 20-10 kyu for forty years. When I discovered David Fotland's engine had been ported from Windows to the iOS, I made the purchase immediately. I am enjoying ten to twenty fast 13x13 games each day against an opponent that is unforgiving and demands close attention but is not condescending. If you are stronger than, say, 9 kyu you look at go differently than I do and you may not enjoy Igowin as much as I do.
The comment below, "only one level of undo," is incorrect. There is a Review/Edit function that presents a slider to move backward through the record. You can play from that point forward. You can even change color.

If I get beyond Igowin's assessment 15-12 kyu and understand more of the game, I may return to add to this review.
This is the most fun I've had playing go in many years and I am looking forward to advancing to the full board.
