- Rich and vivid visuals and style
- One or two players
- Adaptive computer AI for all skill levels
- Simple touch-based interface
- Visual indicators make it easier to find where to drop your piece
- Wide selection range for those of us with a larger finger
- Fast and smooth animation
This game keeps crashing with iOS 8 and no app support
I have been playing this game on my iPod 3rd gen touch since 2009 with no issue or problem, and have enjoyed it immensely. Last week I transferred it to my iPhone 6 and since then it crashes, particularly when there's "no moves" after you or the computer rolls the dice. When you exit/re-enter the game, the board completely reconfigures the pieces to where it benefits me.
I figured this was due to its incompatibility w/ iOS 8, so I tried contacting app support before posting here (why complain when you can ask for help and get insight into what's happening and find a solution?) but all I see on the website is a white page w/ Osnine Entertainment on it. No links or anything. So! I'm posting here with the hopes that they'll fix the bugs soon (or get a response?).
Fun, Addicting, Simple, and Challenging
For an iphone application, this game seems to hit the nail on the head with its simple backgammon design and easy to learn game mechanics. It becomes quite addicting once you adjust to playing on the iphone and is great for a simple retreat from everything to play what we all bought this application for: backgammon.
The game does allow you to move where you want you have to manually slide the piece where you want it, and there is really no need for a undo button just think before you make your move. It seemed to give the computer doubles and perfect rolls more often and that's why I gave 3 stars.
