An Othello / Reversi Game in VB5 / 6

This code sample shows how to build the Reversi Game in VB and the logic behind the moves made by the computer. It also demonstrates some good graphical techniques.





This is a VB5 project, which will run under Windows 9x. No other than basic VB-controls are used.


The code is too specific for this game, so you only can learn how to implement game rules & thinking, besides some general graphical skills...


None. I made the code myself and everybody is free to use it.
