Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app lets you try your hand against other players worldwide.
Anyone who loves classic versions of this old game will be pretty excited by what Dominoes Live has to offer. Specifically, the app currently lets players choose between three different variations of the game (Five-Up/Muggins/All Fives, Draw/Open Variation, or Block/Closed Variation), and all of these games can be played against any other players who’ve signed up with the app.
Currently, players seem to be readily available at just about any time of day, and I found that that the skill levels of these players was often decently challenging.
Beginning players should find that Dominoes Live offers them with good challengers to improve their game play, while more experienced participants should be pleased with the skill levels that their opponents bring to the game table.
An in-app rating system keeps you informed of both yours and your opponent’s ranks prior to committing to a match.
Appearance and Layout:
Dominoes Live’s appearance and layout are functional but not particularly visually impressive. A dark green background is used, somewhat similar to what might be seen in a game of cards.
In this respect, the appearance of Dominoes Live could be considered “standard.” Other than this standard appearance, very little can be said about the graphics of the app. Fonts are readable, but not impressive, and the layout seems a bit more cluttered than ideal.
The actual dominoes game tables are perfectly readable on an iPad, but playing the app on a smaller screen might be more of a struggle.
Dominoes Live is currently available for free through the iTunes Store. It does provide users with a good number of active dominoes players to challenge at just about any time of day. However, its appearance and layout could use some improvements, as they are just solely functional (and not particularly aesthetically pleasing).
All the same, even though it’s an app that could use a few improvements, Dominoes Live is still an app that does exactly what it is promised to do.
If you’re into dominoes, Dominoes Live is all you need to hook up with other dominoes players whenever you feel like playing a game.
Dominoes Live requires iOS 6.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
