Good, but there's an error. I like the simplicity, but there's an error. If you roll 3 x 5s, it scores 500 points. That's correct. On your next roll however, if you then roll a single 5, it should be an additional 50. Instead it makes it 1000 (ie, 4 x 5s). I noticed 3s seemed to work, but not sure about the other numbers. Just needs a quick bench test through the source code.
I don't remember the rules being if you roll three 4's for example then roll again and roll one 4 that you can add it to the score.. this makes no sense to me. Also there's no rolling on option. For example if I roll a good score and keep it with say one or two dice left over the other player has an option to roll on from my score using the last of the dice.
Counting I don't get the logic in some of the CPU's counting Im pretty sure I seen the CPU count two 4's two 6's and a 1 for 750 at one point and a couple of other hand. Also I don't like the whole last chance to beat someone. you hit ten thousand first you win ten thousand otherwise call the game ten thousand and whatever
Something is fishy This game loves straights and rolls +2500 when it needs. Saw it roll 4900 to win. I can be up by 2500 hit +10000 and the comp will roll big, as usual, and win. Its laughably predictable. I call BS on this, I play this game with friends all the time and no one rolls big like this game does.
Computer gets favoured Fix the randomizer code for the dice and I give it five stars. Till then uninstalling the game. Not to mention that the score notices are just plain irritating and don't really serve any purpose whatsoever. The only time you should see a notice is when you can't get any points.
Sux This game cheats terrible!! You can have over 1000 points and it will not let you bank it , you only have the option to roll ! It only offers to roll often when you should be able to bank it then when you roll it makes you lose the points !
Version 1.5 changes:
- You can now play against the computer
- Added German translation
