Carrom is a traditional game of skill which players taking turns using a large disc called a striker to propel other smaller discs called Carrom Men into any of the four pockets at each conner of the board to score points.
Great old classic...
Carrom is a great old classic game. I love carrom. There is no carrom games available for PC, Mac or for any Gaming Console. I wanna say this is a very good effort. But there are some bugs that needs to be fixed. For instance when you flick the striker in a direction. It sometime goes in a different direction. Also, sometimes when you hit a carrom men with a striker. It hits the carrom men but the carrom men doesn't move. Those are thing that definitely need to be fixed and I'd love to see a software update soon to fix those and like the other reviews say. The striker placement should be improved as well. You should have the choice to move your striker where you want, once you place it. Right now, once you place the striker in the line. You can't move it. That should also be addressed in the next free software update. All in all its a golden classic game that came to life digitally by Personae Studios. Nice effort guys. Keep up the good work. Fix the bugs and enhance the software. The Carrom game can use the features that are on the Pool game, that's available for the iPhone. If the Carrom is smooth and flawless as the the Pool for iPhone. It'll be the best and fantastic game. Can't wait for the software update. Last but not least, The price is great.
The carrom-men move nicely. Striking the striker is a bit tricky. Back shots are easier than normal shots for some reason. It's not a free app, but I grew up playing Carrom and would have bought it even if it were more expensive... Please update the striker movement or allow us to choose how we want to strike it.. the normal: lock position, direction and power or the touch method. I like the touch definitely, but it needs SOME PRACTICE... All in all a fun way to pass time...Definitely 4 stars.
Nice elegant uncluttered interface.
Controlling your strike is impossible with current app.
Much better(imo) would be using three buttons, one to lock the direction , one to determine power and one to execute the strike.
Using touch to determine strike direction is very frustrating and none of the peple I know, some very good carrom players, could control the strikes direction.
Nice effort though...
