What's New in Version 5.0
Playable but still a one star game! 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
I just updated my original review after noticing Developer Oskar Tsang's arrogant and snarky reference in his app store game description (to the negative reviews) and I'm paraphrasing it here into simple English: "Why should we provide instructions for this game when everyone knows how to play it?" Gosh, does everyone really know how to play this unusual variation of the game ("Capture" Chinese Checkers)? As evidenced by the reviews, including mine, apparently not. Trying to be fair, I researched it online [at the bottom of this update is an actual set of instructions from a popular website], then proceeded to re-download the app, and played several rounds. Here is how it went:
Gameplay was acceptable if you don't mind relatively low-rez graphics, no basic settings, animated banner ads in several places (and in a paid app‼️), plus frequent unstoppable full-screen video ads that interrupt your game play. That's not okay with me: So, app re-deleted and all I want back are the minutes of my life spent fooling with this p.o.s.‼
"The final variation, known as "capture" Chinese checkers, bears little resemblance to the traditional game. To set up this version, fill the center hexagon with all 60 pieces; the center hole should be the only one left empty. Two to six players then take turns jumping any piece over any other on the board, regardless of color. Like regular checkers, players collect any pieces that they jump, and multiple jumps can be made in one turn. The game is over when no more jumps can be made, and the player with the most captured pieces wins."
-Original Review of 4/23/16:
"Not ready for prime time: AI out of control!👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽"
Amateurish coding effort and barely worth the time to review except as a warning to potential buyers. The AI is buggy, taking impossible moves that make no sense. For example, as noted by previous reviewers, the computer moves its "marble" across multiple vacant spaces to reach and jump a targeted piece, also, sometimes making multiple jumps unrelated to each other in a single turn. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
