Optima Backgammon iPhone
This version of backgammon is fun if you like winning a lot. I have Absolute Backgammon on my laptop and can win about half the time. I've rarely lost matches to this version even on the most "difficult" setting. The iPhone player makes poor moves that are way too conservative... And some moves are just downright idiotic. Strategy rarely involves building blocks on the offensive side of the board, and you can count on being able to trap pieces in the iPhone backcourt. Accepting doubles seems to be based entirely on pip count, even when there is no chance of winning. It needs more sophisticated programming and, as pointed out in other reviews, a resign option would be nice.
Great game. Problem is it is not consistent with ability to double up. Sometimes it don't allow doubling yet computer might double. Also, sometimes it only allows certain moves even when you could move different than what it will permit. Also when on hard the computer cheats in my opinion. It ALWAYS gets moves to take uncovered stones and doubles are very hard to come by when your roll.
Easy interface, but it cheats.
The computer, or sometimes even you,will get improbable rolls quite frequently. On the hardest level the machine plays as an experienced player would ( which is expexted) but the rolls are ridiculous. And I notice they aren't just in the computer's favor; I will get them, too.
Otherwise of all the other backgammon games I've tried, this one is clean, quick, and easy to read the board. I really really wish it truly felt like "chance" when you play. It can be frustrating. Why do t they fix this???
