What's New in Version 2.01
Bugfix in version 2.01:
* In rare cases some checkers could not be moved!
New in version 2.00:
* New left starter menu
* New metal board (in addition to the wooden one)
* New option to gray out dice already moved
* A double can be moved in one big step (instead of 2-2)
* You can move in reverse direction to undo moves
* Up to four checkers can be moved simultaneously (using four fingers!)
* Improved doubling decisions in pure race games
* Bar checkers are now calculated as 25 pips
* Doubling cube now finally stays on the correct side after using redoubling
* Ready for iOS 4.2
The internal move handling is totally rewritten. I really hope that I did not break something. If any problems occur, please send me an email (cause I cannot answer to app store reviews).
Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
Version 2.1 prior review of 1.06 retained.
I played quite a bit with this new version before writing this review. My previously reported bugs were fixed with this release. I think the dice play seems more realistic than prior version 1.06. I felt the game was fairly balanced as far as luck was happening. I have read the one star reviews, and I don't believe they are a fair assessment of the game. It is a very nice app. It has never crashed. Most importantly, I keep playing it...a lot. How can that be worth only one star!
Version 1.-6 review from July 16, 2010: 5 Stars
This game feels right! It is a world of difference. The dice feel normal for the first time. I have had so many emails with this guy who is developing this app that you would think we were dating. WE ARE NOT.. :)) Never met him. I have been rude at times, I have been unforgiving at times, but I have tried to be supportive most of the time. I stayed with his game because I liked the interface. But I also liked what appeared to me that he had great integrity. Reading reviews from the other games, I have come to one conclusion. This obviously is a very tough game to develop. I am sure the mechanics is easy coding. But to get it to feel right takes a whole different technique and probably would be considered an art. I am quite happy with this update. It is by far, the most played game on my iPad. Of course, knowing me, now that it is working so great, I will probably loose interest and go find something else to complain about! j/k
Excellent app. Very real. Totally addicted to this game. Play it 20-30 times a day! Even dice seem mostly random (except not on opening throw which overwhelmingly goes to computer Opponent).
Sad to say you lost a star from me this time. Latest round of updates very disappointing and annoying. Wish I could downgrade. Extra work for player now. Have to choose human or computer every match - grrr. Plus the 'undo moves' function is no longer smooth but now clunky and loud. Faster maybe but not elegant. And why can't Player see the point total during the opponent's turn? This function is only active during Player turn. Which means when Opponent doubles, Player can't check the point count before agreeing or resigning. Please stop fiddling with it. The app was nearly perfect. Just keep working on the dice. Then go and develop some other wonderful app.
Not Fun At All
2.01 is the worst yet. Developer is obviously not listening to its customers. The reviews tell all and you can see by the overwhelmingly disappointed people here. Graphics and game play are top notch of all BG games in app store but dice are still loaded and even worse in this newest update. Open throw 90% to computer. Doubles are ridiculous in favor of AI. Another annoying "new" feature in this version is every time I start a new game now I have to choose my game whether it be a human or computer, there is no way to save your settings as I always play computer it asks me every new game, dumb. It's too bad, this could be an amazing game but developer just doesn't care to listen to these reviews.
