Astraware is NOT for Backgammon
This is one of the worst apps I've seen, at any price. I bought it for Backgammon. The computer just makes random moves, without any particular strategy. It is no challenge whatsoever. I would be better off playing against my 5 year old. For example, if it rolled a 6-1 on it's opening roll, it would move from 13 into it's home board (6) instead of making its bar point would know. I wrote to Astraware about it, but got no response. Don't waste your money.
Dumb AI, multiplayer doesn't work
8 games included: chess, backgammon, checkers, ludo, nine men's morris, reversi, tic tac toe, and snakes and ladders. The computer player is so dumb it manages to lose tic tac toe multiple times. It poses no challenge whatsoever even at hard level. Multiplayer is supposed to work between two iphone/ipad/ipod touch, but when you try to connect, the app just exits.
Works fine, way to easy.
I haven't encountered any bugs with this app, but I did find the AI to be way too easy to beat. Yes I had the difficulty at HARD on each game, but it made no difference.
