"I've played Backgammon games on various mobile platforms over the years and I have to admit that ArtDeco Backgammon 3D is the best one I've ever seen. The sleek graphics and fluid animation make for a cool gaming experience that can be found in no other app of this genre." - user review (5/5 stars)
ArtDeco Backgammon 3D brings you Backgammon in visually stunning 3D. Enjoy an intuitive game with a tactile experience that makes you feel like you are playing on a real art deco themed board.
The ArtDeco theme of the game ties in with the history of Backgammon as it grew and evolved in the New York clubs and societies of the 1920s. In an effort to capture this essence we bring you the game of Backgammon in the
timeless style of ArtDeco.
With multiple levels of AI to suit beginners and more advanced players, many features make gameplay feel intuitive and easy. The autosave and resume feature allows you to play the game as it suits you. If you don't have time
to finish a round, don't fret. Just exit the game, the next time you start it up you'll be back at the start of the round you were playing.
You can challenge other players with the Peer to Peer multiplayer functionality included in the game. Currently it supports GameCenter integration for online play, and Bluetooth connections for games with other local iOS devices.
NB: There is no match play option currently; the doubling cube, match play rules and options are not used at present. This will be addressed in a future update.
Note that there is no competitive ranking in the online component as we are currently focused on casual gaming amongst friends. This may change in the future based on customer feedback.
