    We recently learned of the existence of Senet thru another app. Researched and then found this app. First, I love this game...has to rank as one of my favorite board games now. And this app is perfect. Good visuals, good options (for turning off the music and the hints if you wish.). I do feel like the AI “cheats” a little bit as he always seems to get the toss he needs right when he needs it, particularly in the final stretch of the game... but you can’t have everything. :-). Great job on the app... thank you. Well worth the cost. I could do without the scary sounding voice greeting upon start up. The only thing I would change is to tilt the view so you looking a little more from the top down, I occasionally hit the wrong piece by accident when they are behind another.

    This is a wonderful, fun, challenging strategic game. I would recommend it to anyone and plan on purchasing the actual game board. The only reason why I didn't give it five stars is because there are still some aspects of the game I don't understand. Don't get me wrong, there are instructions and it's easy to pick up and I've become quite good at gameplay but there are some moves that I don't quite comprehend like why some throws only allow certain pawns to move and not others, in a way it doesn't get in the way of gameplay because the computer makes the call but I would like to know more of how the rules work and the meaning behind some of the images on the board. The game is stable with no glitches.

    Very interesting game on a well developed app. Am suspicious that in pharaoh mode the game tilts the rng in favor of the cpu, rather than incorporating a more advance strategy. Ive played roughly 60 games now in that mode and an over whelming amount of times i see the cpu make a significant role disproportionate to its 1/5 chance of making said role. Also I’ve had many games where I was 4/1 favorite turn sour to crazy 6-7 consective roles by cpu

    Easy to learn but not so easy to win. You can be way ahead and things turn on a dime during the last couple of plays. The sore losers who “want their money back” should try playing as two players and see how they fare. Maybe they just aren’t as skilled as they think they are. I win about 40% of the time, and the game can swing in my favor at the last minute. So this game keeps my interest way more than most.

    This is the best of the Senet games I've come across. The developer did an incredible job. Game play is smooth, challenging and fair. Design is gorgeous. This is one of my favorite iPhone games. There's a reason Senet has been around for thousands of years; it's not hard to learn, but the strategy is challenging (without being overly frustrating). Great job, developer, on a great implementation of this classic!

    Great Ancient Egyptian game. Makes me feel like a part of history learning how to play. The computer has multiple difficulties and you can do 2 player if you want. My only quarrel with it is I wish the perspective was a little higher so I could tap on the pieces easier on my phone. It's a bit difficult selecting the ones in the back row. Love the music and atmosphere. Overall solid game

  • Used to be good Feb 12, 2020

    By Jeffandlesli
    I have played this game for MANY years and this app was so good I tried the different levels..... going to the hardest and winning (shocker) I went back to the mid-level and ever since then I won once out of 43 games. What the heck?!? Please change the algorithm to be fair play.
  • Surprisingly well-done for such a simple game Aug 11, 2015

    By GaryV83
    As I mentioned, quite a game for how simple it is. The art is beautiful to look at. The music is thoroughly enthralling (especially when you reach the conclusion of a match). And I had never even heard of Senet until I downloaded this. Very, very well-done!
  • Beautiful Game May 9, 2020

    By sandy_02Fin
    I knew about this game for a long time and this is one of the best adaptations I know of for the iPad. Very easy to learn and an absolute blast to play. I enjoy playing it with my kids. The music is very nice as well. Keep up the great work!!

  • It cheats. Aug 31, 2017

    By Halloween!!!!!!
    The graphics are good. The game is well designed. Playing against the computer is frustrating since the computer consistently gets better rolls. More multiple turns. More 5's. The computer gets the roll it needs most of the time. And if the computer is losing towards the end of the game it really pours on the good rolls for itself. I suspect the game designer decided to take the easy way out and give nonrandom rolls to himself instead of actually coming up with true expert logic.
  • This game cheats!!😡🤬 Mar 24, 2018

    By Reader1718
    Whoever it was that wrote a review saying this game’s AI cheats is right! It gives itself the best rolls (which the computer version doesn’t do) and gives you all the worst ones!! Whoever wrote this game programmed it to cheat, and that’s something I WILL NOT put up with!! I want my money back, NOW! I should’ve listened to those reviewers who accused the AI of cheating before buying it. Take this game off the App Store until this very serious cheating problem is fixed!
  • This game makes me happy *updated Feb 26, 2016

    By vemonator
    The game won't load after opening it, playing a few rounds and closing it. I get a blank white screen instead. I've had to reinstall the game twice. I just wish the pawns on the back row were more responsive when touched. When they're blocked by a pawn in the row in front, it's hard to get them to move
  • The odds are against you Mar 2, 2019

    By kupaa
    After the initial playing phase of the game, the Algorithm of the game will not allow you a fair chance of winning. The AI is frequently able to come back from impossible odds of winning to unbelievable victories that just confound and form of logic. You have better odds of winning the lottery five straight times then to believe that you have a fair chance of winning a game. The fun of the game is definitely gone.

  • Love This Game Sep 22, 2015

    By Mysticway
    This game is both challenging and fun. It takes a short learning curve to understand the rules. The game is well-made, and has great replay value. I would recommend this game to all of you.
  • Very well done and plays well Nov 21, 2017

    It does not take up very much battery life when playing and the sounds are good and plays excellently
  • LOVE This Game! Aug 1, 2015

    By Chickpea88
    Love the new music, graphics and sound effects, too! A simple game to learn but very challenging to play. I play at least once a day. A great app, I totally recommend it!
