Othello Screenshot Your opponent has just outflanked you and captured your discs - you're surrounded. Can you outwit your adversary in this intriguing game of strategy, skills, and concentration?

This game is based upon Gabriel Industries' own electronic handheld version of the Othello board game, known as Computer Othello. The handheld version was released in 1980 and was programmed by Rob Phillips at the University of Maryland who contracted the program out to Gabriel. .

Later in 1982 and 1983 CBS would go on to convert popular arcade games to the Atari 2600 and 5200. They also planned Intellivision, Colecovision, Atari 400/800 and TI-99/4A conversions as well, but the video game crash of 1984 put an end to those titles seeing the light of day.

Catalog number PHM 3067.
