The classic board game with amazing realism and physics. Throw the dice with your fingers and look at it bouncing on the board!
Have fun playing with your family and friends or even play solo, trying to beat the Artificial Inteligence. Any player can be replaced by the AI.
Play in teams of two!
Full Screen! The design has been made to take full advantage of the screen. So you and your friends can sit comfortably around your tablet.
Very easy-to-slide pieces. Start dragging a pawn and a star will show up witch is your destination square. See how it auto-adjusts in its place when you release it.
Funny effects for funnier matches. Quick and easy to use menus to access the game without complications. Beautiful design, reminiscent of the classic Parcheesi board...

So joy, some bugs
While I see that this program has been built with the Unity platform there are a few annoying bugs to report. First, the first set of doubles only allows the face value to be used; there after doubles work correctly (probably some initialization problem). Second, at times the roll freezes and the only solution is to pause and re-enter hoping it will work again - to mixed results. At one point on re-entry the game enabled the AI to play the other two nests and the AI started blocking our play. Last, at times it will not allow the movement of a piece (that should be able to move) and force the movement of other pieces farther back - it isn’t at all clear why this would be. If you like pass and play between humans it has the capability to be fun but the bugs need resolved. I see this game has been out for three months so perhaps it is due for an update to address the newer versions of IOS that have come out in that time. Please make sure you are testing on an IPad Pro as that is more pervasive in the marketplace now.
Thank you for your talent in making such a game!
New version spoils the game
My iPad just updated this game to the new version. This is not Parchis HD, but another version (by a different developer?). I dislike it, but it's still better than the other Parcheesi games in the App Store. The older game was very nice, very elegantly designed and with good options and game play. This version has different graphics, different dice rolls, different play options, and it's slow. I wish I could revert to the old version, but apparently that isn't possible. Some suggestions for
Sr Quiles: restore automatic dice rolling for non-AI players, or make that an option; make an option to have the old player messages instead of annoying noises. If you restore them by option, you could English, Spanish, and whatever addition languages you might think necessary.
I'm getting used to the new graphics, although I think the old plainer ones more esthetically pleasant. I'd rather be able to turn off the new sound effects, while keeping the dice roll and movement noises. And it is really tiresome to have to keep touching the screen to make the dice roll. The older version was better.
Also, the correct name was "Parchis HD", not "Parchessi". IF you want the English spelling, it's Parcheesi, or Parchisi.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review, i will take in consideration your advices for next versions.
DO NOT BUY - UNWINNABLE
Awesome game design. I wish the die roll was truly random. It is impossible for it to be random, or I'm the unluckiest person alive. It's absolutely astounding how the bots get such "lucky" rolls at least 75% of the time to either take an opponent out or hit the safe spots. The only way to win is to control two cooperatively against two individual bots. Even playing this way I still lose 25% of the time, but at least it is fun. So I give it three stars for playing in this way. If I could only control one player I would only give one star.
Game designers - please fix this. Make the rolls truly random.
I submitted this review a couple of years ago and they still have not fixed it. They probably think it’s funny.
