Changed intro animation
Breaks Basic Game Rules - Bears off with pieces not in home
Not only does the game immediately require $4.99 purchase, but I found in my first game that the creator didn’t even implement it to follow the basic rules. I hit a piece after it started bearing off and it continued to bear off even though its piece was not back to its home area. If you are going to charge, you should at least implement a game that follows the rules. I feel ripped off.
Honestly, you cannot enjoy playing the game at all with this app because of how awkward the gameplay is. The dice take an exceptionally long time to roll and there is a jerky feel to the way the AI plays. Even for a free app, this is well below what is acceptable. (It is also worth noting that you won’t be able to play a full game for free, partway through you will be prompted to pay to continue. However, this didn’t factor into my score since developers need to make money off of these apps somehow and this at least allows users the opportunity to test the game before buying.)
I installed the free application got through 3 rolls before it wants you to pay. Im not oppsed to paying for apps but it would be nice if you could acctually play it before you are axked for money.
