Ratings and Reviews
This game is pretty good, but I have two problems with it: the computer is programmed to hit any of the opponent's open men, without regard to strategy. Second, when the computer Is ready to bear off, about 90% of the time when the computer rolls a one it leaves the man sitting is the one spot and moves a man further away closer to the one spot. These two flaws are biased to benefit the opponent; however, it is still a very good game and requires the opponent to use his/her strategic skills. I particularly like winning after the computer has put five of my men on the bar and I come back and win.
UPDATED REVIEW: they have changed the game and the computer will not always allow you to make moves you choose. I do not understand why. Example: I just rolled. 2 and 3. I bumped my opponent with the 2 and tried to move the same disk to a point with other men which would have made that disk safe. It did not allow that which left that disk vulnerable, and sure enough, it got bumped! TERRIBLE CHANGE TO THE GAME!
Mostly solid but annoying
I’ve used this game for quite a while and I generally like it, but there are some annoyances.
First up, I’ve noticed a bug in the current version where the game pieces become incredibly small to the point of being barely visible. This usually happens after a few times playing. Killing the app and restarting fixes it. This is a fairly new problem and the app has otherwise been solid.
Second, be aware that the game cheats. The dice are rigged. This is what immediately obvious from the opening roll where the game wins a hugely disproportionate amount of the time. It also happens during game play. Backgammon can be frustrating enough without this.
At the moment I’m using the free ad based version. The reason I haven’t upgraded to the full non ad version is because the ads are annoying. I won’t buy a product that is intentionally annoying. There are two aspects to this.
If I don’t want a product, making me sit through an extended ad for it isn’t going to change my mind. Annoying ads are why people buy ad blockers. When are advertisers going to clue in to this?
The second and in my mind unforgivable act is that on several occasions I have been forcefully exited from the app and dumped into the App Store, presumably to buy the annoyingly advertised product. Not gonna happen. If this behavior persists this app will be deleted permanently.
Game is unfair
I have found your game to be a bit unfair although still enjoyable. Every time I leave a token uncovered the computer always, and I mean ALWAYS rolls what it needs to bounce my token. Then, even if it only has two spaces blocked, it takes me 3 to 4 rolls to get my token back in play. When it is the computer bounced, even if there is only one space unblocked, it always rolls the number which is unblocked on the first roll. The computer rolls doubles on an at least 4 to 1 ratio to me. Something is fishy in San Francisco.....
I just played a game where there was no way I could lose it...that was until the computer rolled 5 double 6 in a row! Smells fishy in Denmark too....
