What's New in Version 3.7
Compatibility with iOS 8.1.
Excellent Backgammon app
Graphics are good. Responsiveness is fast. The Easy and Normal options are too easy for an experienced player. With those, the computer makes some real bonehead moves, like leaving single pieces uncovered (blot) for no good reason at all. When I started using this app on those options, I won 100% of my games. On Hard, games are a challenge, though I win more often than I lose. Nevertheless, the Hard option is like playing against a human opponent. Lots of good options for sound, board appearance, direction of play, highlighting of possible moves. Contains doubling cube and undo. Reviews of other Backgammon apps claim they "cheat," giving the computer just the rolls it needs, more doubles, etc. I do not see that with this app.
Better than most
I played another app for at least two years and loved it until recent updates ruined it. I bought another popular app and it was heavily biased in favor of the computer and didn't offer enough layouts. I've reluctantly settled on this app despite a few flaws:1. Even on the most challenging setting, I win more than 60% of the time. 2. The computer's piece moves are glacially slow. I've timed them. They take a full second per piece per move. 3. The pieces sound like croaking frogs when they move. Aesthetically I wish my first app would fix its issues so I could return to it, but since I'm hopelessly hooked on the game this one will do for now.
I upgraded to the paid version after reading the reviews, however, the one review that really sold me was one that said this version plays fair at the higher level, instead of the AI version 'cheating' by rolling excessive doubles, and higher rolls. On the "normal" level all is good. When I play on the highest level the computer, when losing, seems to roll doubles anywhere from four, to eight times in a row... And with high numbers, while the human rolls, on that level, rarely get a double. As a result, I am stuck playing only the normal level.... Which is not why I purchased the game.. I wanted a challenging, but realistically challenging game...
