Battle of the Elements is a decent Othello/Reversi clone for four players. (Not three, not two ... you must have four players, either human or CPU controlled!) There is a large variety of different board layouts to choose from, but other than that (and the colorful pieces) it's much the same; duplicate a piece one space away, or jump a piece two spaces away, turning all opponent pieces you touch into your own. The game continues until only one player is left. This game also includes a separate one-player game called "Fox-Hunt" (available from the in-game menu) where you simply try to move to the exit and draw the enemies into the traps. Overall both games work well enough and are worth a try.
