Needs some work
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.
Good game but needs some upgrades
Good game. Here are some suggestions to the app developer.
First, the game does not adjust volume via my iPhone volume control. It’s either full on or silent if I use the ringer switch on my phone.
Sometimes the game has quirks like just now I had one remaining piece to bear off on the second to last triangle. I rolled a 1 & 3 and it makes you move the 1 first before allowing you to bear off the piece.
The losing sound, is annoying.
Making you hit OK at the start of each game after the initial roll is annoying.
The fact that when selecting a color, you either play correctly oriented or upside down is annoying. The colors don’t change to your orientation. Therefore, white is the only option to play to have the correct single player orientation.
Needs a little work
Easy and medium levels are way too easy but hard level is ridiculous. Let's you win every now and then but anytime you leave a chip open, it gets perfect roll. If you get ahead, it gets double after double. If you have chips on every slot but 2 and 4 you can bet that will be your roll. Maybe create an impossible level for this kind of cheating and just make difficult have normal random roles.
