Five Popular Dice Game Apps for iPhone
While dice games require absolutely no skill or strategy, as they are purely games of chance, they can be pretty addicting. Even when there is no money involved, people still play such games just for their entertainment value. Now imagine a game of dice except instead of having to hold actual die pieces, you play the game virtually, add in an exciting back-story and the game will undoubtedly be an instant bestseller on the app store. There are a lot of dice games available on the Apple app store for iPhones and other iOS devices but five stand out because of their design, theme, and popularity, these include:
Dice with Buddies
Dice with Buddies is perhaps one of the most popular dice games available on the app store. It is available in both free ad-supported and paid ad-free versions. This online multiplayer game allows users to play with their friends on Facebook or start a match with random players from all over the world. It has a built-in chat feature that allows users to interact with each other. It employs a turn-based game play, allowing players to start multiple matches simultaneously. Push-notifications are also an option.
Based on the popular board game of the same name, Yahtzee Adventures employs the same theme and game play with the addition of other game modes and levels. You can choose to play the original game or play in adventure mode where you can take on different characters and travel through various in-game locations. The iPhone version can be played with up to three players by passing the phone around.
Dice soccer is a simple dice game for the iPhone with a fun and exciting back-story. The game essentially shows a soccer match while players roll dice to determine their characters’ moves. The game comes with over 100 levels and 13 tournaments. The app is available for free at the app store.
“Aw Craps!” is based on the popular casino dice game “Craps”. The game is pretty simple: players just have to bet on the outcome of a roll before a pair of dice is rolled out on the board. The iPhone version stays very true to the actual game, with a 3D casino table shown on screen. Players have three options when rolling the dice, they can shake, tap, or flick. The game also has a manual dice rolling option for those who want a more realistic gaming experience. “Aw Craps!” is available on the App store for $1.99.
Backgammon involves more than just rolling dice, the dice just determines who plays first. This two-player board game is believed to have originated about 5000 years ago, making it one of the oldest board games still played today. The goal of the game is fairly simple; you just have to remove all your pieces from the board before your opponent beats you to it. There are two popular backgammon apps on the app store: Backgammon Premium and Backgammon HD. They are pretty much the same except that the latter allows the user to play in full HD.
Whether it’s a board game or just simply betting on the outcome of dice rolls, dice games can be a whole lot of fun. The iPhone serves as the perfect platform for virtual dice games and offers users an entirely new interactive gaming experience.
