Never in my 30+ years of playing backgammon have I ever encountered a player or another app who rolls the number of doubles to avoid getting backgammoned like this one. I have literally seen this app roll 2 double 6s and then a double 3 to avoid this. It's not at all uncommon. I've read there little spiel located in the notes about how the app doesn't cheat, but damn... that said it's a fun, dependable and stable app. Online play would be a great improvement.
Please stop adjusting game for people who do not want a challenge and only want to win with no effort or skill. The CPU makes stupid moves now. I have this version of bacgammon on another phone and I love both wining and loosing at challenge stage 5 on old phone, but the CPU is no challenge now on new phone. I win all the time even on stage 5. Or maybe you guys could develop a pro version and a beginners version. Please give me back old CPU.
As soon as you realize that it cheats and how, the quicker you may enjoy THIS version. I've played backgammon for over a decade, this version for a few years. As soon as you learn that it will usually get the roll it needs and learn the art of the "pawn sacrifice", the better. Always leave a target that you can afford to lose. It will often give you more doubles than it'self but they will be of less value. Like ones and twos instead of sixes. I have a friend, a backgammon player for fifty years agrees whom I cannot beat, agrees. It has made me a better player by making me think differently and now I win and lose equally. But I will not buy it untill play seems more equitable.
At first AI was really a challenge to beat but now it is not fun at all, I beat it regularly; like 90% of the time at level 5. However it is very easy on the eyes, smooth play just wish AI was a little smarter. I am an accomplished player of 35 years so dont pay no mind to my gloating. Overall one of the better games I have played
Visually excellent, great gameplay. On rare occasions when trying to move pieces close to each other the app picks the wrong one, but it's rare. Also seems like when you up the difficulty the AI simply gets better rolls (ie four double in a row) or enters unrealistically easily when the inner table options are very limited. Still, the pros outweigh the cons. Great game.
I really cannot understand why the others think that the game at level 5 cheats. I have the opposite impression that the game gives me the dive i want at any time. I rated it with 3 stars because the game is very easy. I play at level 5 all the time and it cannot beat me. It mades stupid moves. I have 6 wins at 7-round matches and AI 0. And rounds won 22 vs 7. The game is too easy. I have screenshots for anyone who may not believe.
