Big Bang Board Games 99c !!!!!

Ok, this is insane, Big Bang Board Games is only one dollar!!! For only a buck, you get Chess, Backgammon, Checkers, Mancala, Reversi, 4 in a row, and Tic Tac Toe, all with great 3d graphics. Its made by Freeverse, so you know its good. Also features 2 player "hot seat" gameplay.

The only thing holding me back is the awful reviews on itunes. Are there any good reviews anywhere else??

I got it for 99, but only because the version on my MacBook is all glitched .
Despite all the bad reviews, it isn't glitchy. If you're running 2.1, that is.

I think it's worth the $1.

Agreed. This one isn't worth it even if it was free.

Totally agree with you. The reviews make the game sound putrid.

How's the AI as the reviews really make it sound as if it's horrible.

The AI is quite easy at first, but in the options, you can choose "hard opponent". It makes things a little harder... The annoying thing is, if it sthinks you're going to win, a window pops up after every turn saying "It looks like I'm going to loose. How about I just resign, and we'll play again!". You deny, and it keeps asking you.

Ok so i ended up picking it up for the buck,
i probably got my moneys worth b/c i played it on the plane for about 1 hrs. The graphics are nice i guess. i thing the dev. was trying too hard with the graphics but nice game if you need to kill some time.

I agree with that.

I too picked it up since it was so cheap. I have been searching for an inexpensive backgammon game. I thought this was okay, but just okay. The pieces were small and hard to see. But I am not prepared to shell out $5 for the only other backgammon game in the app store, so I'll manage!
