As with so many other reviews this game was so much better in it's original version. The graphics are cartoonish. The scoring not correct and the worst is the bugs in these recent updates. The tiles in many cases can't be put on the board without them going all over the place. Losing time which results in losing points or even a win. Really bogus updates. WAS a great game before. Gave it 3 stars only because I continue to play on a regular basis.
I've played this as a real game for years. The original version of the app was more faithful to the actual game. I don't understand why the major changes. Now you can't plan strategically, the computer arbitrarily changes the board layout for no reason. When playing the actual game you don't do that. I used to love this app. I played it all the time. It was a good way to keep the mind sharp planning your plays. You ruined it. Even the graphics are cheezy. Why???
The game is not how it was before, I used to love the old UI and now it's just way too fake. Looks more like a cheap rip-off now. The scoring system is broken too which sucks badly. It's not the best update, the game was a lot better before. New controls are bad too, when you pick up a stone, its offset is ridiculous. You place it on the hoard and then it could mess up the whole board because it's not placed where you wanted it to be. After update: it got worse.
I purchased this awhile back, loved it, but had to uninstall because of no storage space. Just installed again on my new phone - what the heck is this?? Timed turns?? I play this as a nice mental break, usually while watching TV. I can't even pause it. Go back to the old graphics, old REAL game, and give me a CPU option, not other players. And NO TIME LIMITS.
Sadly, since the fancy graphic updates, this is NO LONGER the "ORIGINAL" Rummikub game you advertise in your description! Rummikub has been a fun, competitive game of luck and strategy for over 60 years!!! The scoring in your new WIN-WIN version is AWFUL! If I score 250 points playing against three opponents and win the game, I only receive 100 points for 1st place. Conversely, if I lose against my 3 opponents, I am awarded 5 points (regardless of how many points I leave on the table!) This new scoring system takes away the major elements of strategy and competition that I (and many others who have made similar complaints) love and miss!!! Please abide by your advertising and bring back the ORIGINAL version we paid for. Thank you.
Use to play this game every day.. new version looks good but hate the scoring system. I liked the fact that if u lost a game u lost points and if u won a game the points went up. Now the xp just goes up whether u win or loose.
