If you’ve been around computers long enough you may remember Sexy Droids (or Blue Angel 69 as it was called in some markets) from the Commodore Amiga era. The simple but fun concept behind this Amiga classic has now resurfaced in a game called PikBlu. It’s a game for two players (human or AI) where each round each player picks a tile from the board. Tiles appear in values ranging from zero to 12 and in red or blue color. Values of blue tiles are added to the player‘s score, values from red tiles are deducted. Which gives a hint why the game is called PikBlu.

So you always pick the blue tile with the highest value, right? Not quite. Often it makes perfect sense to pick a tile of lesser or even negative value, just to force your opponent into an even worse move. This is especially true later in the game on hard difficulty. The game features a single player campaign with 50 levels and quick rounds where you can set playfield size and difficulty.

PikBlu has been around for Windows 8 for a while. It just now appeared on Windows Phone 8.1 as a universal app that will roam your single player progress between your Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 8.1 devices.
