    In My Head
    I'm excited, only because this means sim city is coming soon!
     
  3. I bought it. I was hoping for Motion X animation dice rolling physics but oh well. Still it's really polished. I'm glad they didn't come out with it at $9.99 or even $7.99. I definitely wouldn't have bought it at $8. $5 though is fair.

    Everything fits on a screen ...no scrolling up and down like other yahtzee games. They use 3x for three of a kind 4x for four of a kind. House symbol for full house. Small arrow for small straight (at least 4) and large arrow for large straight (all five). ? for chance and Y! for Yahtzee (five of a kind).

    Does it have special modes that distinguish it from regular Yahtzee games like Five Dice?
     
  5. yea...k played it for about 2 hours straight now.

    In addtion to classic mode Yahtzee it has battle mode 2,3, or 4 players CPU. Of course you can play against humans too just hand device around...no wifi though. Battle mode each starts with 100 points and you try to elminate your opponent(s). Max is 100 you can ever have. Upper 1,2,3,4,5,6 gives you points (health). Lower 3x,4x,fullhouse, small straight, large straight attack your opponent. Chance is rolled on and it could either attack or give you health and possibly backfire (although have yet had that happen).

    Rainbow Yahtzee is same except also has Red, Green, Blue flush (all 5 are red, all 5 are green, all 5 are blue) if you get say Red the it's 35 pts. Also has full house with colors. You can have say 2 greens and 3 reds and that is 15 pts. Basically it mixes things up cuz you are trying to get your regular stuff but sometimes it's tempting to go for a rainbow flush.

    Has adventure mode.....has many achievements to obtain too. Like score 5 points in a game for instance.

    Duplicate mode I've played and just a tad confused. When I play it my initial roll the same intial roll is what my CPU opponent starts with too. Then you can roll twice more like usual. Next turn starts and same thing. In the instructions it says the same 15 dice are rolled. So I guess even the 2nd and 3rd roll are the same. Haven't paid enough attention if that's the case. Supposedly more strategy to it.

    I assume you mean Yahtzee?

    This Yahtzee EA game is not available in Australia either. Like some of their other titles are also not available.

    I wouldn't hold my breathe if I was you.

    Yeah, I don't get it. It's not a licensing issue. Take their game Spore. It's available in Australia. But their lite version is not. Oh yeah, and when they dropped the Spore price in the US store, they did not drop it here in Australia. It just makes me think (and I'm sure other potential customers think the same) that we are not important as we are not a US customer. EA doesn't want our money. I don't understand this. It's not like we pay pennies. They charge a premium price here in the Australian app store.

    I'm really not sure about this game yet...

    I own Five Dice and it is really nice (it's is still available).

    In addition, tho we can't tell if it'll be approved there's a JVL Mobi upcoming version that seems to have a nice interface:

    Well let's see... :)

    Agreed. I think i prefer the Five Dice interface to the Yahtzee despite the need to scroll in Five Dice. More visually appealing.

    That new one you linked looks better than Yahtzee as well.

    Well after some time I've decided to purchase YA and the Adventure mode has lots of twists and game modes, some of them different than the original Yahtzee.

    Duel is really interesting and kind of fun to play.

    Sometimes I have a feeling that opponents have better dices combinations most of the time but it may be just me...

    I like the game so far. :)
