I like it but...


I love Mancala so it’s hard to hate with a decent game that has varying levels of difficulty and an online aspect too. I have two gripes with this game: 1.) the sound effects can sometimes be choppy and only give you one loud ‘clack’ instead of the satisfying multiples like it should. 2.) the board skins are wayyyyy to over priced (probably in the hopes you’ll spend real life money on them but yeah right). I can play Mancala for hours at a time but not enough to gather thousands of coins... it’s just too steep of a price for something as simple as a skin.

Good game bad AI


I was able to beat the toughest level after playing this game for 2 hours. The game developers really need to think on how to keep this game interesting.

The online aspect was interesting but did you know there are no online players. If the game would have said there are no available players that would have been ok but making a AI play instead of an actual person is fraud.

You are fooling the game players by indicating that they playing with a real person and making an AI play instead. What's the use of chat options of there is no real person playing the game.

The Old Way

***The Man from Philly***

I really enjoyed the original format of this game. When one over engines something, one tense to get away from what made it (it could be any creation) successful and destroys it beauty. This app did not need such improvements, but to be fair, if one felt the need to make “improvements” the improvements such be optional not mandatory. For when “improvements” are mandatory ones choice(s) are taken away from one and that is never received well and folks walk away altogether. Then it leaves the question, where the “improvements” worth it? if folks stop playing the app...
