Algorithms need a lot of work.
I've enjoyed backgammon for years, and prior to the last release, this was one of the best apps for it, but it does need tweaking. The difficulty level appears to be tied to tweaking the luck aspect of the dice vs actual playing level of the system, when playing against the device. For instance, I've barred the system, and I'm bearing off, yet the system continues to move the near its home, vice moving his pieces out of mine, resulting in a tripling of my win. Just today, I had 12 wins vs 5 for the system, and I put four pieces on the bar. The doubling cube was at 16, and I pulled the triple, giving me a 60 game match. The update to the algorithm on the most difficult setting allows up to 6 back to back rolls of doubles for the system. It also favors barring pieces vice making tactical decisions which are better. This version really lowered the quality of the game in my humble opinion. Please, revisit the tactical part of the game.
Needs some work
It is a fun app, you can choose your difficulty levels. The part that gets tiresome is when playing the computer in a "hard" setting, they constantly roll doubles beyond anything you would see in normal dice rolling.
Also, when your in the bearing off mode and there is no danger of hitting or being hit by another pip, this game has no automatic roll-off, in other words, you must tirelessly keep rolling and removing your men and waiting for the computer to so the same when at that point it should just be automated bearing off. I'm sure there are some apps that have that, I just don't know which ones do.
In the meantime, this is a fun free app that will keep unnecessary occupied for hours.
I like this game overall but you reach a point where you realize the dice rolls seem to your advantage when playing at a lower level and the dice rolls seem rigged against you at the hard level. I’d rather it was more of a strategic challenge than a challenge based on chance.
Also it would be nice if you could forfeit if you clearly are going to lose to speed the match up. The computer too could offer to forfeit when losing is obviously inevitable. The doubling cube helps to a degree but there is still a lot of monotonous bearing off.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
