Ludo.NET for Windows Phone v1.4

Ludo.NET for Windows Phone v1.4


Hi my name is Paul. Welcome to this
walkthrough of Ludo.net for Windows Phone. When the app starts, it takes you
right into a game of Ludo. If you’ve played a game already it will continue
from where you left off the last time. If not, a new game is started with one human
player playing as red and three opponent players played by the phone. The red
player starts. You can see that by the action on the red tile, telling the red
player to roll the dice. Tap the dice to roll. You have to roll a
six to move a piece out of the house. If you don’t get a six, the turn is passed
on to the next player. An arrow indicates that you should move a piece. Tap any
piece to move it out of the house. Every time you roll a six, the turn is not
passed to the next player, meaning you can roll the dice once more. If you’re
lucky, you can get several sixes in a row and make a great progress in the game on one turn. If you happen to move a piece to the
same square as an opponent’s piece, the opponent’s pieces turn in. That means the
piece is moved back into the house and he’ll have to start all over again with that piece. If two or more pieces land on the same
square, they form a block. A block cannot be passed by other players, but
still your own pieces can move past your own block. Be careful where you form a
block, because other players will soon fill up the squares behind your block
and form blocks too – so don’t form a block close to your own goal. You’re goal is to get all pieces around
the board and onto the path of your color, towards the triangle in the middle
of the board. The first player to get all four pieces into the goal has won the
game. Still the game continues until all players have reached their goals. At any time you can start a new game,
popping the new game button in the app bar. This takes you to the new game
screen. Here you can choose how many players you want in the game, and whether
they are played by the phone or a human. The red player must always participate
in the game. It’s always the red player that starts.
If you happen to go to the new game screen while in the middle of a game, you
can press the back button to return to your ongoing game and continue. To actually start a new game, you tap the
start button on the screen. We now start a new game with a red player played by a
human and a green player played by the phone. You can also start a game where all
players are played by the phone. On the settings page, you can adjust the
speed of phone players. The default setting is slow so it’s easy to see what
actions the phone players take. However you soon get tired of slow players, so
you probably want to speed them up a bit. No problem. You can choose another speed
setting in the middle of a game. The fast setting is actually quite fast. You can also select another theme for
the app. The default theme matches the modern style of the Windows Phone. The
gradient theme is the old design. It was used for the first three versions of the
app. It’s a bit more colorful. The setting is stored until next time you start the
app. To apply the selected theme you have to restart the app. You do that by
pressing the start button of your phone, to return to the home screen and then
start Ludo.NET again. Ludo is a classic board game with many
variations around the world. If you’re used to play by different rules, there
are a couple to choose from when you start a new game. More rules will be
added in future versions of the app. From the new game screen you slide to the
right to get to the game options. Here you see which rules are going to be
applied when you start a new game. These are additional features of the app, so
you have to buy a rule for a small amount of money to unlock it. You do so
by pressing the button that tells the price in your local currency. Before
you’re charged for the game rule, you have to confirm the in-app purchase. This
follows the pattern for all in-app purchases in the Windows Phone store.
When the purchase has been made, you return to the new game page, and the rule
will be unlocked. Let’s try to enable the roll 3 times rule, and start a new game,
to see how that works. With a roll three times rule applied, you can roll the dice
up to three times to get a six. You can do this as long as all of your pieces
are in the house, or some are in the goal while the rest is in the house. This rule
makes it a bit more even, in the way that a player gets pieces faster out of the
house, if all pieces are turned in. The second game rule “form blocks” is
turned on by default. When this rule is unlocked, it can be turned off. Do so, if
you don’t like that two or more pieces on top of each other blocks other
players from passing that square. But be aware that all pieces will be turned in
if another player happens to land on your stack of pieces. To see various information about Ludo.NET, bring up the menu at the game screen, and tap the about menu item. Here you can
find a link to the apps web page, write a review of the app for the Windows Phone
store, or see the change log for the current and all previous released
versions of the app. On the last page, there are links to
other apps you can try out. Ludo.NET is also available for free
in the Windows Store. That means, you can install the app on a PC or tablet,
running Windows 8 or Windows RT. That’s it for the walkthrough of version
1.4. Please visit the apps home page or YouTube, to look for updated videos
about future versions of the app. Have fun playing Ludo.NET, and tell your
friends if you like it! 🙂
