Description

As previously featured by Apple in "New and Noteworthy" and "Staff Favorites"

In Russia they call it Kalah, in Nigeria it's called Oko, in Malaysia it's called Congkak, but most of the world knows it as Mancala: the strategy board game that many believe to be the oldest game in the world. If you've never played it before, Mancala will take you just minutes to learn, but it will take a lifetime to master as you need to exercise good judgement, patience and lateral thinking with every move.

Mancala HD is the most polished Mancala game on the App Store, featuring:

- Stunning high-definition graphics that bring the game to life before you, including Retina and Retina HD graphics.

- Beautiful soundtrack that blends ethnic music with a modern feel, plus original sound effects.

- Built-in video teaching first-timers how to play.

- Play against a friend, or try the computer player with three difficulty settings.

- Set your own options to make your favourite game.

- It's a universal app - buy it once, and play on iPad, iPhone and Apple TV!

Please get in touch on Twitter @twostraws to let us know what you think - we'd love to make Mancala HD even better with your suggestions!

Still not sure? Here are just a few reviews from users:

"Very few people seem to know how to play this game, so I am grateful for the iPad app. The colors are nice, the graphics are very clear. Love the music and the sounds. This is honestly one of the best purchases I have ever made. This is a game I will play over and over. Hats off to the developer!" - Lostingames

"This is just like playing the original game down to the sound of the marbles. Definitely a favorite!" - allbean32

"Mancala is a time-honored game that's easy to learn, fun to play and can be quick paced. This app is gorgeous and well done. Good tutorial, too. Get it. You'll enjoy it." - Mtnmedic64

"This app is beautifully presented and captures the game perfectly. As an app, there's very little room for improvement" - Apidaya

"Finally - We discovered mancala while travelling and IMHO this is the perfect game for iPad. Simple but deep, the game itself is ace and this version's AI is perfectly pitched at medium - demanding but not deep blue. two player just works. I'd recommend this to mancala fans or newbies." - Grifter101

"Noticed this in the Noteworthy section of the store and grabbed it straight away. My wife and I are great Mancala fans, and this is the best virtual interpretation we've found. Very very playable and makes great use of the iPad's capabilities." - Degsy314

"For those of you old computer geeks like myself, you might remember this game as a game within a game from Quest for Glory 3: Wages of War, or you might just be looking for a fun time waster, and this is it!" - Matthew110607

"Great game. Very easy to pick up but you can spend hours learning the finer points." - Lorrana

Great game!

:
Mancala is a time-honored game that's easy to learn, fun to play and can be quick paced. This app is gorgeous and well done. Good tutorial, too. Get it. You'll enjoy it.

The only hitch is it does tend to lock up at the end of the game from time to time. For me the first time was when the AI opponent (iPad....hey, a guy gets lonely sometimes!) and I ended in a tie. Second time when I beat the AI opponent 28 to 20, ending the game with a last move of moving one stone over to capture the opponent's last stone. Each time requiring a restart of the app. Hasn't happened in the middle of a game. Nothing awful, really. Just restart the app. The bug has been reported and is a known issue.

5/5 stars

Mancala at it's Best

:
Very few people seem to know how to play this game, so I am grateful for the iPad app. The colors are nice, the graphics are very clear. Love the music and the sounds.

The AI is just right. The game moves smoothly and quickly. I've not experienced any freezing issues nor have I had to restart the game (except when I was losing).

This is honestly one of the best 99 cent purchases I have ever made. This is a game I will play over and over. Hats off to the developer!

4/5 stars

Okay

:
It's okay. It is a AWESOME game, but sometimes it freezes and you can't unfreeze it.You have to restart the game. Only sometimes.Otherwise, it's a great game.
