Apple Games Features Monopoly For iPod
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' latest game feature focuses on the recently released Monopoly for Apple's iPod multimedia device. The game features the classic play of the original board game along with new additions like adjustable difficulty levels and customizable rules. Apple's article provides an overview of the game as well as a history of the popular board game.

Many of us have played Monopoly with our own house rules over the years, and the iPod version obliges by allowing you to tweak certain settings. For example, you can increase the payday for the Go space up to $400 (with the option to double it if the player lands there), change all playersí starting cash reserves, decide how to conduct auctions when someone passes on purchasing a property (or whether to conduct them at all), and so forth. You can even start a game with all properties randomly distributed to the contestants, allowing you to get right into house and hotel building.

In addition, you can trade properties and cash with other players, another time-honored tradition of those Sunday evenings spent around the dining room table. The computer-controlled participants will also get in on the action, their trading savvy dictated by the difficulty level assigned to them.

Monopoly also tracks your statistics, allowing you to view your overall record, the most money youíve ever earned in a game, and the most hotels and houses youíve ever owned at one time. Unfortunately, it canít tell you how youíve fared in those metrics since childhood, when you and your siblings argued over who got to be the race car. Perhaps itís better to leave such things to the pre-digital part of your life. Now you can merely save your progress in the middle of a Monopoly marathon and pick it up again any time. You can even be the race car every time you play.
