Download Game My Checkers for Nokia 5800, X6, N97, 5233, 5230 and 5530

My Checkers is a nice Java based Checkers, two-player game, where one player is assigned white checkers and the other red. Checkers game is played on the dark squares only. A piece may move one square at a time, diagonally. The aim of the game is to capture the other player's checkers or make them impossible to move.

You can select the skill level of the computer's play: An easy level means that the computer will pick the move that gives it the best immediate outcome without regard to your computer move. The medium level makes the computer a reasonably tricky opponent. A hard level makes the computer extremely difficult to beat, but the amount of time it uses to plan its next move may be prohibitive.

The Rules of Checkers: Players take turns making moves, with Red (you) making the first move. To win, you must  capture all of your opponent's checkers or block them so that they cannot move. At the start of the game all checkers may advance toward the opposite side of the board by moving diagonally from one brown square to another vacant brown square. When a checker reaches the opposite side of the board, the checker is crowned and become a king (denoted by a cross). On subsequent turns, a king can move in any diagonal direction on the board.

If a diagonal square is occupied by an opponent's checker with a vacant square beyond, the opponent's checker must be jumped over and captured. The player must continue jumping if able to do so. The one exception is that when an uncrowned checker jumps into the king row (the opposite side of the board), it cannot jump again until the next turn. When there is more than one way to jump, the player can choose which jump to take.

There are two game modes: Classic and Tournament. The game is developed by Gener S. Gabasa from Octacore Games for Symbian S60 5th touch screen mobiles such as Nokia 5235, 5233, 5230, 5530 XpressMusic, 5800 XpressMusic, N97, N97 Mini and X6.
