Version Updates:


* v0.8.0 - Fixed chance bug + fixed High Score not recording correctly

* v0.8.5 - Added high score table

I had some issues with the high score saving. I've now added a full high score table. You will see this when you finish a game. My testing is showing it saves between games but please let me know if there are any issues.


Roadmap for next few weeks:

* Main screen where you can choose to play, check the high scores, see an FAQ etc.
* Multiplayer (player 1 up / player 2 up)
* Bigger high score list
* Yahtzee success "animation" (when you get one)
* Yahtzee bonus pop-up and score guide when you get a 2nd, 3rd yahtzee etc


I've been working on an 'arcade' style yahtzee game in Flash and used the Adobe Packager to create a neat cab file for it. You'll also require the flash lite player from Adobe. The links are below.

I've tested this a lot with family and friends on my Touch HD and to be honest I'm addicted to it myself.

If you like it but discover any bugs let me know and I will fix and repost the cab file.
Also planning to add high score table, audio etc.

I don't know how to play Yahtzee but I do know it works on VGA screens with a little resizing that does not impact play
Here you go: http://www.fuzemobility.com/yahtzee-...n-yarboo-time/
By the way, just realized I don't know how to exit the game except for just hitting the home key and closing it through task manager...maybe in v .0.0.6 you can add an exit softkey within the game

exit game
Hi, thanks for the feedback

This rules info page is good.. http://grail.sourceforge.net/demo/yahtzee/rules.html

The cab should provide a 'quit' button via flash lite. I will look into a sofy key exit button though.

Nice game thanks a lot.
Quick question : for me, the Chance roll doesn't work. If I try to add the score to "Chance", I'll get a 0 input. Anyone else ?

yep your are correct.
Will upload updated cab this evening. I think it was down to the late change I made to support the yahtzee bonus system.

Thanks

Oh. I read this as saying, ... makes these games look REALL

lol, they are real, and they even are good.
never mind

PS: I have spend many many many (WAY too many to even count) hours with
a handheld version of yatzee, in the water closet over the years....

Now I have to promise myself to never do that with my PHONE!!!!

The high score is not working for me Each time I reopen Yarboo, it is reset to 0...

It would also be nice to have a high score list panel

cheers
