About the Game:
The game board of Checkers Absolute has 8 rows, and 8 columns. There are 12 White, and 12 Black pieces to play this game. You will be assigned the White pieces, while the computer will play with the Black pieces. As you can see, the board is checkered. A piece can only be moved in diagonal direction, and only across a single box. You can not move the piece backwards. The only way you can move a piece backward, is when you reach the opponent’s starting side.
You have to continue playing unless the opponent is out of moves, or out of pieces. To take out opponent’s piece, you have to diagonally jump over it to the second diagonal block. You can only take out a piece if the second diagonal box is empty. If it is filled with your piece, or opponent’s piece, you can not take that piece out. You can freely move any piece in either of the forward diagonal direction. When you keep playing, and one of your piece reaches the opponent’s side, it is marked with a crown. The marked piece can be now moved in backward direction.
When all of yours’, or your opponent’s pieces exhaust, the game gets over, and you can restart the game. Press the New Game option to replay.
This is a really difficult to play Windows 8 strategy game, and you have to utilize you brain’s might to defeat the opponent. You need to practice a lot to win this strategy game. There is no level setting provided as well, to increase or decrease the difficulty.
