Overall, I enjoy Craps U, but I do have some complaints.
Chief among them is that I simply DO NOT BELIEVE THE DICE. I have seen far too many runs in which a huge, unrealistic number of the same result turned up. Sometimes you just get HAMMERED with sevens (when betting Don't Pass) -- three, four, five in a row, literally.
I know that 7 is the most likely roll in the game, but it gets ridiculous. You get great floods of them in this game. Ironically, when you need one, you can roll twenty times and not get one! I have come to suspect that the program simply is not an accurate simulator of a pair of six-sided dice. And I also see the same thing with eights. Sometimes you just hit an absurdly thick patch of them.
What this game desperately needs is for the user to be able to see a RECORD of the rolls' incidence over a period of time. As you know, given enough rolls, they should eventually map out to that hill with the six ways to roll a 7 at the peak. Right now, the game offers no way to verify the roll history's statistics. That's a gaping flaw.
Minimum Tutorials, poor graphics, not as promoted
They make this game out as a tutorial for people wanting to learn craps. But when you try to enter the tutorials section there are limited tutorials. Basically their or five section on the different aspects of the game. The first section over pass line bets was helpful, but after reading one page worth of tutorials I was ready for the next section. When I opened up the next tutorials section I quickly realized it was the same as the section I just read. I then clicked on the other sections and same thing happened. So basically the entire tutorials this app advertises is just for the pass line bet. Pretty ridiculous. Also graphics are below average. There is absolutely no reason to buy this app, free versions are much better.
All around excellent
I know next to nothing about craps but was able to figure the game out quickly. Crisp graphics and smooth gameplay. My only advice is to have a built-in glossary of terms.
