Algorithms need a lot of work.


I've enjoyed backgammon for years, and prior to the last release, this was one of the best apps for it, but it does need tweaking. The difficulty level appears to be tied to tweaking the luck aspect of the dice vs actual playing level of the system, when playing against the device. For instance, I've barred the system, and I'm bearing off, yet the system continues to move the near its home, vice moving his pieces out of mine, resulting in a tripling of my win. Just today, I had 12 wins vs 5 for the system, and I put four pieces on the bar. The doubling cube was at 16, and I pulled the triple, giving me a 60 game match. The update to the algorithm on the most difficult setting allows up to 6 back to back rolls of doubles for the system. It also favors barring pieces vice making tactical decisions which are better. This version really lowered the quality of the game in my humble opinion. Please, revisit the tactical part of the game.

It is a fun app, you can choose your difficulty levels. The part that gets tiresome is when playing the computer in a "hard" setting, they constantly roll doubles beyond anything you would see in normal dice rolling.

Also, when your in the bearing off mode and there is no danger of hitting or being hit by another pip, this game has no automatic roll-off, in other words, you must tirelessly keep rolling and removing your men and waiting for the computer to so the same when at that point it should just be automated bearing off. I'm sure there are some apps that have that, I just don't know which ones do.

In the meantime, this is a fun free app that will keep unnecessary occupied for hours.



Love backgammon and this is a version w/ good graphics. It's enjoyable and the recent update will keep it alive - nice. I find the big rolling 'no valid moves' thing a bit overdone and annoying. Would love to see the algorithm in play here, but since there are no advancing levels or gains of any kind to be won, you just win or lose and the match is over.... I don't get too worried about whether the computer wins more than I do. Because, does it matter? But the computer does seem to have a better connection!
