Tic Tac Toe is an extremely popular game the world over and is probably one of the first games you learned to play. Kids to adults enjoy the challenge and fun of this game.

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka by Selassie Akakpo is a digital version of the classic time-passing game, “tic tac toe” and it’s a very cool way to play it on your iPhone.

Available for $2.99 through the iTunes Store, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka – XOX Noughts And Crosses Game With Intelligent And Difficult AI (the full name) offers players the ability to sharpen their gaming skills without needing a physical second opponent.


Despite its long name, this app’s features can really be summed up in the first three words of its title–tic, tac, toe.

Simply put, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka keeps the general concept of the classic, popular children’s game but adds in a few modern spins.

Players in this version get to see bamboo “H’s” and “X’s” instead of the traditional “X & O” pattern. Keeping with the bamboo theme, playing as a cute panda is also an option in the two-player game.

For players who don’t have that extra friend to play against, Tiki Taka offers AI of three different levels to challenge yourself against. For anyone who has ever played pen and paper “tic, tac, toe,” picking up this app version of the game will be no problem at all.

Even though the app offers three different levels of AI to battle against, experienced players should still be able to beat the AI with relative ease. Overall, while the features of this app are charming, they don’t seem to offer that much more than a traditional version of the game.

Appearance and Layout:

The design of this game is top-notch and its appearance and layout are easily its strongest attributes.

Bamboo-crafted playing pieces take their places on the gaming board as you work your way to victory as the “champion.”

Panda versus Bamboo makes for a charming two-player option offered within the app as well.

Additionally, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka’s layout is simple enough that even a small child could easily grasp both the navigation throughout the app and the rules of the game very easily.

Because of its fun graphics, easy navigation, and simple gaming concept, this app is definitely very child-friendly.


At almost $3 per game download, the price on Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka definitely seems steep. Arguably one of the greatest appeals to traditional tic tac toe is the ease and affordability with which the game can be enjoyed; all that’s required usually are pen, paper, and a opponent.

While some players might find the option to enjoy playing against an AI ‘bot worth this app’s price tag, the majority will probably pass up Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka for cheaper gaming options.

The graphics and extra “twists” that this digital version are certainly creative and fun but whether it offers enough to justify the app’s price is for you to decide.

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka iPhone app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
