ZingMagic's critically acclaimed version of Backgammon enables you to play this most popular of board games to a high standard anytime, anywhere.

Backgammon is a simple race game. The object is to move the pieces around the board towards your inner table. Once all 15 of your pieces have arrived in the inner table, they can be removed from the board. The first player to remove all his pieces from the board is the winner. Although the play is highly skilful, the fact that the moves rely on the roll of the dice introduces an element of luck allowing even a novice to win the odd game against a world champion.

    Better

    Thank you for updating your app. You now have new game, level of play, etc. Game play is good at the lower levels. Very hard at the higher levels as the computer gets alot of doubles. Also the text under the more soft button where you enter your name etc. is white. I first thought there was nothing there, the text needs to be black . STILL NEEDS ANOTHER UPDATE!

    Great!

    This game doesn't cheat. Has different levels to enjoy. The movement of the checkers is slow but that is the only complaint. This game is never frustrating or loaded with favored dice. You will enjoy it.

    "Expert" level = Computer Cheats

    The odds at this level are very much slanted so that the player is forced to separate pieces and the computer rolls itself exactly what it needs to hit one or both of your pieces. This is then followed by a series of rolls that allows the computer to get all of its pieces home while the player gets doubles that are not for the open spaces in the computer's home space. Horrible game at this level. Absolutely unrealistic. Save your money for a cup of coffee instead. Take a pass on this app.

    Roll your own dice

    Since the harder versions roll doubles for the computer, at least give us the option of rolling our own dice outside the game. I do enjoy the game up to intermedite level. Now, at least give us a chance at the hard levels. Don't make the harder levels harder by the roll, but by better computer play.

    Not good!

    I am unable to find any settings to change to expert level. Won't let me make moves that I should be able to make. Might be a setting that I can't find?? There are no "how to" instructions that I can find either. I can't tell what any of the symbols stand for. I just keep randomly hitting them to see what they do. Not worth the money at all, even though it was only $3.99.

    Worst app ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wasted my hard earned money on this app and look what happens, it was a total waste of money. It has all of these glitches. For example, one day I went on the game and the computer would play and it wouldn't let me.

    The company' s games all have bad reviews and another example of glitches is, one time I would hit my piece and it would fly off of the board and would fly back. It got sooooo frustrating. Sometimes I wish I could go back and time and tell myself NOT to buy this backgammon app and to buy the one from Agile Fusion. If you are ever going to buy an app, try to get from Agile Fusion. I bought a Tic- Tac- Toe app and I am really impressed by it. I really hope you buy another app. This will probably be helpful to you. Make your decision cheap and no glitches from Agile Fusion. Or buy this app and have to pay a lot more for glitches and viruses! Choose wisely. Your wallet will thank you, if you buy another app.
