App description: Witness the craziest camel race of all time, as things really go topsy-turvy when camels stack up and entire pyramids turn upside down. As members of Egyptian high society, you gather in the desert with one simple goal: to gain the most money by backing the right camel to win a leg or even the entire race. However, in this race, its not just the lucky ones who can beat the odds. Reading the dynamics of the race and having a good sense of timing is just as important when it comes to backing the right camels and taking the victory.

CAMEL UP is a simple, quick, and outrageously exciting family game that can be enjoyed by up to 8 players.

- Highly detailed graphics in Retina resolution
- Easy start into the game
- Single player mode
- Exciting multiplayer mode for up to 8 players
- Computer opponents in 3 difficulty levels

Just got it. Read a Youtube review of the Board Game and liked the idea. There is no ingame tutorial level and the instructions are a little sketchy. Once I've worked it all out think it could be quite good. Graphics compliment the Physical Board Game very well. Played five games t Normal difficulty and came second in one. Starting to understand it.

Been playing awhile and it's definitely a game where the more you play the more you start to understand your strategy. Playing against the three AI I've succeeded in coming second on three occasions so feel I'm getting better at it. The AI moves are pretty fast and do show you the strategy needed to defeat them. Dice is the biggest part as far as I can see. Watch what your opponents dice colors are and where the like colored camels are will help you decide what to do next. I nearly one one game because I could see that all colors except one had been thrown and that there was a good chance that throwing the final color dice would get me across the line first but the number was too low. So some random elements do come into play. Quite a surprise game and based on the physical game a very good take on it. Nice and colorful but could do with a few more giddy up sound effects I think.

Thanks, PCKid. It sounds fair, but I'm not convinced that it's worth the money. I'll have to look for that YouTube vid you mentioned.
