Big Bang Board Games from Freeverse is a collection of 7 board games that while it has some minor control issues, is a great collection of games and a great value.
Big Bang Board Games includes the following games: Checkers, Chess, Reversi, Mancala, 4-in-a-Row, Backgammon, and Tic-Tac-Toe. All games are 1 or 2 player though no network play is available. Network play is scheduled for a future version.
In single player mode, all of the games play very well, the AI is good and included is an option to turn on a master difficulty level if requested. While the pieces in some of the games can be rather small, selection seems fairly accurate. And in some games you can turn the screen to landscape mode to see the board much bigger which aids in the control. Would like to see this implemented for all games.
While Big Bang Board Games may not be the best application for any one of the games included, it is a very good deal considering that 7 different games are included. With the future addition of network game play will make this game even better. Easy to recommend this game to anyone who likes board games.
