App description: Playdek brings the venerable Sid Sackson classic to 3D!
Featuring a push-your-luck dice mechanic, this classic game pits up to 4 players in a race for the top!

Roll four dice to make pairs and start your climb to the top, but beware, the moment you fail to advance, you lose all progress! Next time, try to roll better! Rolling hot? Youll earn Streaks!

How to play: Roll four dice and select from the pairs presented to place a runner on the numbered column. Subsequent rolls either add a new runner or advance a runner thats already on the board. You only get three runners and when they are on the board, you must roll an advancing pair, fail to do so and you lose all your progress! When a player claims three columns, the game ends!
You Can Look Forward to Getting Hooked On:
Beautiful 3d and animations
Original Music and sound effects
Up to 4 players: Single Player and Pass-and-Play Multiplayer
Variable levels of AI
Game Center Achievements
Streak Meter

I guess this is going to be second Playdek game after Food Fight that I'll pass on. Just not to my taste, and lacks the thing that has made Playdek a near permanent fixture on my iDevices, async mp. So... where's Agricola?! And also Smash Up (I predict Smash Up will dethrone Ascension as the best uber-light async card game).

Is this why the servers for other Playdek card games stop working? Nevermind, punching the buy button...

Just bought it. Clearly a very simple game but well-executed and fun for what it is. Hopefully they add async and iPhone 5 optimization soon.

This game begs for MP (async I mean). It can be time-consuming to watch your opponent to push his/her luck, but I think it is still fun (much more than NightFall).

Not sure about this one either. Looking forward to Tank on Tank though, seems to be a nice TBS WWII boardgame.
