  • It's almost on point Mar 27, 2016

    By PurpleSun13
    This game is awesome! I love Egypt and their mythology, this game does have it's weak points the worst aspect of the game is that 1)you don't get rewards or anything that may change up the game a little to make sure you don't get bored with it 2) not all the rules are the right ones from the Egyptian game "Senet", you usually don't have to wait long to take your turn and when you toss the sticks and you can't move any piece that number you have to move back that many squares and if you are in the in between world then you can bump people back to the house of birds and things like that. The problem is all you do is knock them into the house of water. Other than that this game is awesome! I played pharaoh mode (you can pick a mode) and I won! This game is almost on point.

    Not sure why people are complaining about the ads. Aside from the small ad bar on the bottom right (which is easy to ignore) the only other ad you get is when you finish a game. I'm really enjoying this game. The music is funky, the graphics are good and gameplay is simple and fun! I'm addicted already and I only downloaded this game yesterday.

    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.

    The only faults I find are the slow gameplay (the scarab indicator needs to move to the next player immediately) and the annoying pop up screen after you bear off 5 tokens and then when you win (just show a random screen at the end showing "win/lose")...and having to roll when you have no moves - 10 times in one instance. You should just skip your turn. Fix those and this is a 5* game in my opinion. Doesn't need any more bells and whistles. I'm not bored at all...except for the aforementioned. Edit: I reduced my rating from 4* to 2* The rolls ought to be random (see a to me they were, once), however the AI consistently gets 4, 5 and 1, in multiple, consecutive rolls. So irritating I shut down the game quite often. Fix this!

  • 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!

    I agree with other players. Gameplay is rigged because it deals the dice to make the cpu win. Bad algorithm. It will allow you to win in every 3rd game if you play right though. And for those who don't know how to play Senet, they offer a very vague instruction/guide about how to play the game. It also hangs and stops suddenly, maybe because it's computing the moves so the cpu can win. Not worth the download.

  • 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

  • Very Challenging Oct 5, 2020

    By JFavia
    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.

  • Awesome Game and Well Designed and Programmed Dec 30, 2015

    By WRS15743
    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!

  • Good game Aug 3, 2019

    By stonetemplesourdog
    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

    Fun and easy game to learn. The full window ads were a bit annoying. Wish at least one of the two other difficulties was available for free.

    Playingle single gives computer unfair advantage, you lock outmoves and give computer all the moves. Game is very unfair.

    Nice gameplay. Too many ads. Literally one every move. Deleted.

    After playing tjis game for over a year it still is an exercise in futility playing against the computer. I like the game Senet and the visuals are very nice. However, the algorhythm must be written in a way it gives the computer an advantage. For example, on your first roll, eight times out of ten it's a 2. Eight times out of ten the computer's roll is two or three doubles. In play the computer will roll six times more doubles than you will roll. Just wish computer rolls were more random.

  • 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.
