"What impressed me the most was how easy it was to move the checkers."
"The interface is clean and easy to use. Best of all, it just works."
You can drag checkers around, use two-touch moves, or use one-touch moves. It's amazing how fast you can play. The smooth animation gives the game a nice feel.
You can play in either landscape or portrait orientation.
The four levels of AI (Cautious, Wild, Advanced, and Expert) provide a real challenge for players at any level. iGammon follows all the rules of standard backgammon.
The doubling cube is a great addition. When you want to increase the stakes, slide the cube over to your opponent's side of the board.
iGammon lets you set the
following backgammon options: (1) Show point numbers, (2) Show pip count, (3) Autoplay forced moves, (4) One-touch versus two-touch moves, (5) Fast animation, (6) Doubling cube, (7) Jacoby rule, (8) Computer's playing strength -- from "Cautious" to "Expert".
There is an Undo button, so you can take back moves. A Repeat button lets you can see your opponent's move over again.
"The undo feature is well thought out."
