The classic board game "parchis" (Parcheesi) now with American Edition Mode: Two dices!
Amazing realism with 3D dice and physics. Throw the dice with your fingers and look at it bouncing on the board!
Have fun playing with your family and friends or even play solo, trying to beat the Artificial Inteligence. Any player can be replaced by the AI.
Play in teams of two! The only digital Parcheesi with this game mode.
Full Screen! The design has been made to take full advantage of the screen. So you and your friends can sit comfortably around your tablet.
Very easy-to-slide pieces. Start dragging a pawn and a star will show up witch is your destination square. Sea how it auto-adjusts in its place when you release it.
Funny effects for funnier matches. Quick and easy to use menus to access the game without complications. Beautiful design, reminiscent of the classic Parcheesi board...
What's New in Version 2.4.2
- Added iPad Pro compatibility.
Nice looking but it cheats
UPDATE: I've played many more games since my original review and I'm more convinced that the game cheats when played against the computer. For example, if I move my piece 2 spaces in front of an AI piece, the AI piece will roll a 2 and jump me the majority of the time. If I get within jumping distance of an AI piece, it will almost always get a big enough roll to move far away from me, or get just enough to move to a safe try space. There are many more examples of this type of behavior. If the developer would simply make the dice rolls random, I'd give it 5 stars. As it is, I have to reduce my rating from 2 stars to 1.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Until they fix the painfully obvious non-random dice rolls, I don't see any reason to play.
Suggestion for app
Love this app. It's great for playing with others and against the AI. The computer does seem to play a sneakier game than I'd expect (blocking me to it's own detriment) and has very lucky rolls quite frequently but I enjoy the challenge.
My one suggestion would be to offer a mute option on the game. Sometimes you don't want the game sound, would prefer to only hear a tv show or music.
Missing many elements of play
Should be able to pawn out with a '5' in total dice (in American 2 dice version), not just a single die.
Cannot 'pass' when any dice points are still unplayed. No being able to removes a lot of the strategy of the game.
