iPod Yahtzee Reviewed

The iPod Observer has posted a new review article examining Yahtzee, one of many titles available for Apple's iPod device. The game brings the classic dice rolling of Hasbro's family game to the iPod with the addition of unlockable levels, multiple game modes, and multiplayer action. iPod Observer gave the game a Recommend rating.

The iPod is a personal device: You listen to your music on it, watch your movies and videos, you get podcasts and audiobook that you like loaded up on it. It's a small device with a small screen that is meant for private viewing.

Yahtzee, on the other hand, was created to be played with at least one other person, someone you can kid around with. Yahtzee solo just ain't a lot of fun and playing against the computer is no good either. You need another person to play with.

That's not to say Yahtzee for the iPod is not a well executed game, in fact I think its a game ideally suited for the iPod. The screen is simple and easy to see, the controls are equally simple and an absolute joy to use, and this version of Yahtzee is faithful to the original, almost to a fault.

I also believe that in situations where you and several folks are cramped into a small space for 30 minutes or more, on a road trip for instance, you'd be hard pressed to find a more suitable and fun game to play. You can't hear the dice shaking in the cup, however, unless everyone has earphones of some sort. But then, that might not be such a bad thing because it's likely everyone will be talking anyway.
