Crokinole

Crokinole


Simple and addictive. Crokinole, also known as Croke, is like mini-shuffleboard, carrom, and marbles. Originally created in Perth, Ontario, Crokinole will forever be remembered as a favourite cottage game for thousands of people. Crokinole for Android features bright, fun graphics and a realistic physics engine.

A challenging, strategic game, Crokinole is easy to learn and hard to put down. Currently a local two player game, you simply place your finger on the puck along the outside edge of the board and drag it until it is in your desired shooting location. Then simply pull back to determine the strength of your shot and release! Remember that you must hit your opponent's pucks if there are any on the board. The board will rotate in between the players' turns so you don't have to turn your phone upside down!

Pucks that land in the centre are worth 20 points! The outside ring is worth 5 points, middle ring 10, and inner ring 15.

New to the game Well, I like the game. It's pretty addictive. There are a couple of problems with the program, though. 1. Red always gets to go first in each round. It should either alternate or have the person with the highest/lowest score from the previous round go first (depending on "house rules"). 2. The game in progress doesn't save if you accidentally hit another menu button. At the very least, the program should give an "Are you sure you want to exit the game?" prompt. 3. For multiple round games, the scoreboard does not provide the score at the end of each round. It just goes to the next round and then gives the score at the end of the entire game. 4. Often the scoreboard does not display one or more digits in the score for either or both sides. Good things: 1. Great sound effects. 2. Great animation. 3. Good implementation of a very basic "stripped-down" rule set for Crokinole. Fix the problems I mentioned above and I'll revise the rating to five stars. Well, a new app has arrived on the scene. It provides for both playing against human or AI opponents, has the opponents rotate opening the rounds, and displays the scores correctly. Uninstalled this one therefore.
