Reversi was the first game to be included with Windows, right at
the beginning in 1985. It stayed there, mostly unchanged, until 3.0,
when it was joined by Solitaire. In 3.1, it was replaced by the
famous Minesweeper, but Microsoft gave it a makeover and offered it
as a free download.
While the graphics were new, they retained the old scalability.
It always starts in a window half the screen width. Above you see the
smallest size to which the window can be resized. Click on it and see
it maximized at 640×480.
The AI is quite strong, though the lower difficulty settings have
probably been toned down in comparison to earlier versions.
