What's New in Version 2.0
One of my favorite BG apps.
The AI here isn't "brilliant", but it does put up a good fight. The iPad compatibility of the app is another plus.
One thing I really DON'T like about this application is the sound of the playing pieces moving around the board. The sound is similar to the sound of fingernails scratching across a chalkboard! It irritates me so much that I always play this game with the volume set at zero. Also, the touch-response, when touching pieces to be moved, could be a bit more sensitive. I find myself often having to touch a piece twice before I'm able to activate it.
BTW: NJ Backgammon is by far my favorite BG app, but it costs $5.
When I choose to play the game on difficult, I expect the computer to play better. Instead, on the difficult setting the roll of the dice is rigged so the computer conveniently rolls exactly what it needs nearly every time. Takes the fun out of playing. Looking forward to freeing up the space it's been taking up on my iPad.
It would have been easier to learn if there were instructions.
There are still things I do not understand
