Ratings and Reviews
This game is a favorite and the app does the best job so far of recreating it.
The update came as a shock. My old app would not allow me to play. So I was forced to update. When I updated it I was angry. The graphics had been ruined, it now looked cartoonish. It seemed to have used the same game play as other online games which I dislike.
My biggest complaint is with tile placement. Often when I move a file onto an edge of the field it immediately snaps back to me as if we're attached to a rubber band! I place it in another spot and it comes back to me! In 30 second games this often causes me to have to take a tile instead. Why is this happening? Am I being forced to place it parallel with another group of tiles? There's a certain strategy when I place tiles which I use with friends, and it's ridiculous that I can't play tiles anywhere on the board now.
It is so frustrating when you know you’re playing with a person and they bow out and the computer takes over. It goes from the person having a lot of tiles to going down to zero in one move. The computer can play it so fast and can make many more moves than the human can. I understand the need for the computer to take over but it never has trouble making the tiles stick or all of the other things that slow you down. Very frustrating. I feel like bowing out also every time I realize it’s taken over. You need another update to correct the amount of plays the computer can make in one turn and make it more realistic to what a human is capable of doing.
The Algorithm Stinks
Can someone please explain to me why I wind up with double 13’s, or 4’s, or 9’s of the same color literally every game I play? I have played Rummikub my entire life, and while drawing doubles of the same color happens, it’s not nearly at the rate of this digital version.
There’s also the matter of the ridiculous number of games where an opponent has over 25 tiles left, everyone else has 1-4, and the person with 25 magically comes back to win in two turns. Again, I have seen it happen in real life, but not at the rate it does here.
I’m left thinking that there isn’t enough true randomness built into the algorithm, because there’s no reason either of these things should be happening this often.
