With so many poker games available in the iTunes App Store how do you know which one to buy? You read reviews like this one.
MotionX Poker is one of those poker games in the App Store. However, MotionX Poker is not your typical poker game. Think poker meets Yahtzee. You see, instead of using a deck of cards, you play with dice. You get three rolls of the dice to get the best hand possible to beat the dealer.
Playing with dice is the key to making MotionX Poker so much fun. Instead of tapping cards, or waiting for cards to be dealt, you shake your iPod Touch/iPhone like you would as if you had real dice in your hands. When you stop shaking, the dice roll. This works perfectly, and is REALLY cool! Once your dice are rolled you choose what you want to keep and roll again, and again.
As you play you can unlock other tables and other sets of dice. You can also win gems as you beat certain challenges.
The game also has a mode called Zen Roll. This allows you to use the game as a set of dice to play any other dice game using five dice. The game will not keep score. Think of it as electronic dice. So, if you happen to have a Yahtzee score card with you and you and your buddy want to play, you can use Zen mode.
MotionX Poker is a steal at $4.99 and what a game from the App Store should be like. It takes full advantage of this accelerometer technology and it is a lot of fun. If you want a poker game with a twist, this is the one to buy!
I would love to see the company produce a Yahtzee game with the same quality. I’d be the first to buy it!
