Editors' reviewWhatever the appeal of games with expensive special effects and complicated story lines, old-fashioned classics like backgammon remain powerful forces in the digital gaming world.
This download is a near-perfect implementation of that classic game, offering various levels of solo play as well as options to challenge live opponents on the same computer or over the Net. A detailed tutorial provides help for beginning players, and wide-ranging features include a clock, an option to turn on advanced rules, animation speed options, and three separate difficulty levels.
On the aesthetic front, the game includes elegant skins for the pieces and board, animations for the movements of the pieces, pleasant sounds, and an intuitive interface. All told, we think it would be hard to do better than this version of Backgammon, and dedicated players may want to purchase this even over cheaper or free options.
Backgammon Classic has a new design, more strength, many playing options and an intuitive interface. Three different levels, from beginner to advanced, can extend your fun and improve your skills. Selectable skin, game or match play, statistical information, save/load a game, doubling cube, several playing levels and player ratings are a few of our backgammon features.
