One of the best
Ok, I'm kind of obsessed with trying every backgammon app in the store. I've found that this is the one that I keep coming back to. Very good design for the user interface. Animation is quick and smooth. Showing possible moves is nicely displayed. I don't agree with other reviews indicating that the odds are stacked in favor of the application. If anything, I am occasionally surprised that the computer leaves tokens unnecessarily exposed. Also, the computer occasionally fails to exploit obvious bump opportunities. But, all-in-all, it is easy to play and addictive, due to its fast pace and intuitive control features.
A reasonable game
ALL pocket backgammon programs cheat. ALL of them. They have too. Hand helds don't have enough computing power to stage a "hard" game in a reasonable response cycle. So they cheat the rollout odd. This one is more attractive than most. Easier to play. Plenty of settings and an undo button plus full direction of play options.
Only real weakness is that it doesn't use much basic strategy in medium difficulty (the highest play mode before you trigger "super luck" on the opposing dice."
Hence, it is pretty easy to beat it or impossible - not much in between. Still an attractive game for little money.
Amazing luck....for the computer.
I've been playing this game for well over a year. It's been fun, but the honeymoon is over. Like one of the last reviewers, I too can guess every move the computer will make. The programmer of this game hates to lose. It's really "odd/lucky" that the computer can roll so many doubles in a row. Or hit that one open point roll after roll until it wins. There is no fairness or randomness in any roll. The lack of the ability of the programmer to write a game that is left to chance is obvious. Save your money, buy a board and play a human. You'll remember how much fun you used to have!
