Nice implementation of 4 in a row. The computer is also not too easy which is the case in most implementation.

A real keeper for me to kill some time with

There is one minor feedback I can give you, that is that when someone does win the game the highlights around the edge doesn't match with the rest of the look. The game does look very good for a four in a row, but the green circles look a bit cheap compared with the overall look.

Thanks for the feedback!

@Tricky-Design , you're right, I have to work on that. Some of the UI elements are from previous versions with no skins (well, the solid blue one called Plastic now), so the green was intended to match the blue, not metal or wood. Maybe a translucent yellow ring will fit better, we'll see ^^

@nobnut, so that's yours, thanks so much for the rating!

Thanks for the review @Tricky-Design ! ^^ I hope you (and everyone else) like the new update 2.9, it has a couple of surprises

Ok, I can't wait to tell them, hahaha, there's a new front screen. I hated the old 50 KB bitmap, it looked great in mobile phones, but not in tablets. It's gone, and since I didn't know what to do with those spare 50 KB, I've just added a new skin, probably influenced by the VERY HOT day we are having in Madrid today.

Since the new front screen is made from scratch, please tell me if there's any issue with your device / screen resolution / orientation / whatever to fix it as soon as possible. Thanks!

Update, a picture of the new front screen:

@TheRomMistress, right, haha, it wasn't too late for a Spaniard anyway

I wonder if there's any issue with the new front screen introduced yesterday in version 2.9. If anyone here can test that with an entry-level Android phone with small screen, I'd be grateful.

Version 2.9.1 in the Market. Thanks to being featured in XDA Portal, I've received quite a lot of feedback

This update tries to address the feedback I've received about quitters when a online match is in progress.

To be honest I've not played with any quitter yet, maybe once or twice in a month. But now the handling for these cases is better both in client and server:
- Client side will show a notice to potential quitters if the abandon is not considered legitimate.
- Game server will start penalizing quitters by lowering their chances to find new players (someone suggested me to match them to other quitters, that would be interesting too xD).

In case the abandon (pressing BACK during online gameplay) is at the very beginning of the match or if the remote player is taking too long to move, no notice is shown and no penalization applied.

Release 3.0 is out, and to celebrate its success there is a brand new and unique section that you won't find in any other Four in a Row game:

Riddles! Enjoy and learn with +200 carefully designed riddles for solo play that will tease your brain and game variations like "DON'T connect four" or "Fill the board", where alternative winning rules apply for an added fun.



Some riddles won't take you more than few seconds ("Ultimate move" section), others are pretty challenging as you have to chain more and more perfect moves to solve it.

Hope you enjoy all the new features of the most feature-packed Four in a Row ever. Please note that riddles are for play solo, but game variations allow ALL the options of "classic" modes, that is, either 1 or 2 players, custom AI level, custom board size and custom skins. Never get bored with Four in a Row again and have fun with friends with those challenging game variations.

As always, feedback is welcome, and ratings/comments in the Market highly appreciated.

Enjoy, and good luck solving the riddles! First one to solve them all please tell to design more
