We're bringing a centuries-old classic to iOS: Backgammon.
Play backgammon as it was meant to be played. Fluid Backgammon brings the classic household board game to your iPhone. Play against the artificially intelligent opponent (A.I.), or play with a friend on the same device.
Our A.I. uses complex neural network evaluation algorithms to determine the correct move based on a game-tree search. Select from Easy, Medium (and coming soon- Hard) modes as your skill level in the game progresses.
- Undo, in case you mis-tap a piece
- Doubling cube
- Fluid graphics
- Reliable random number generation for the dice
- Match play up to 1, 3, 5, 7, or 11
- Free play
- An active developer, so when the next iPhone comes out Fluid Backgammon will be ready right away
We've got some great plans for the next several versions, too:
- Game Center integration
- Expert A.I.
- Play over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi
- Nackgammon, Acey Deucey
Ratings and Reviews
I've tried about 7 backgammon apps and, overall, this one is my favorite. The play is smooth & smart - and with the AI taking time to "think", it feels more realistic and fun.
However, I must add the game at medium level (no high level yet), is rather easy to beat. You won't always win if you are a good player, but you'll win say, 75% of the time.
A refreshing thing is, I don't think this app "cheats" on dice rolls like many others.
As such, the games wind up being wild, swing back and forth and are quite fun because of it. But again you'll usually win, if you are a skilled player. Not a big prob, I just play to relax and I don't mind if I win 75% of the time.
To the developer: bring on the "hard/expert" level! Also, make the doubling cube optional. I like to teach new players and the doubling cube aspect is better to wait for later.
5 Star Backgammon App
This new app is my favorite of all the backgammon apps I have used. It has a great design, accommodates one or two players, and has multiple skill levels. The response time is fast, and navigation is intuitive.
If you are looking to learn the game or improve your skills, this is definitely the app to go with.
Look No Further!
This is the best backgammon app on the app store hands down. The look and feel of the game is classic, yet modern, and the gameplay is super smooth. I can honestly say that I have never had more fun playing backgammon than I have playing it with this app. The developer, Henry Wilson, is a truly god among men.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
