Backgammon Classic

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Whatever 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.
