Customer Reviews

Not as good as it used to be

I was very disappointed to see the latest version of this game has numerous changes that make it less enjoyable to play.

First, a user used to be able to tap almost anywhere on the screen to roll the dice, which was amazingly convenient. Now, the game requires the user to actually tap directly on the dice, which is annoying.

Second, the animation of the checker movement used to be snappy and quick, now it's really sluggish and annoying, even when the game is set to "quick animation". When the AI is bearing off, this is most noticeable, particularly when the AI gets doubles and it takes five times as long as it used to to move four pieces.

Finally, it seems like the game used to be a little more forgiving if I didn't place my finger precisely onto a checker or the place I was trying to move it to. Now it requires almost exact location of finger movements, resulting in a lot more unsuccessful attempts to make a move. This means it now takes two or three tries to make a move that the old version would have recognized the first time.

New Version TERRIBLE!

I've played this game-makers Backgammon game for years with no complaints. However, their newest (computer vs human) version stinks!

With odds of 100 to 1 or greater, for the computer to roll the ONLY move available for it to advance, it does it! And, it happens 90% of the time. Example: All posts blocked except the six post and the computer rolls double sixes. Yet, when the situation is reversed, and I need an exceptional roll like that, I get 1s & 2s three times in a row while the computer rolls doubles 3 times in a row and moves ahead to win. Too blatantly programmed for the computer to win.

Horrible update

Attention advertisers! This was a reasonably good backgammon game until the recent update. Although the "Apprentice" now makes smarter moves, the blatantly fixed dice rolls have ruined this app. Consistent double-6s, frequent doubles during bearing off, frequent "perfect" rolls when only one roll can get the "Apprentice" out of a jam or do damage to me -- all have taken the fun out of this app. That means I'll be looking elsewhere for a backgammon app. Which also means I won't be seeing the ads on this one.
