Celebrate Monopoly Day with Monopoly for Kindle.

monopolyIn honor of Global Monopoly Day, there is a limited time discount offer going on now for the Kindle edition of Monopoly.  The game goes for 99 cents, and the sale ends on April 10th.

Monopoly for the Kindle includes most of the features of the well loved board game.  You can pass n’play with up to 3 other players.  Choose from 3 difficulty levels: easy, medium, and hard.

“I wanted to hurry and write a review as I know a lot of people are considering purchasing this since the price is temporarily 50% off. I LOVE Monopoly so figured it was a safe bet for me. When you first start it seems a little strange until you get used to the flow of the game, but once you get past that, it is very simple to play. The developer did a nice job of simplifying the controls so that the game moves quickly. I’ve been playing it for about an hour straight since purchasing it, and really enjoy it so far. As of now, no freeze ups or problems. Great little cheap game — so far I highly recommend it. It is worth the full price easily, but grab it while it’s on sale!”

“I like that you can play with multiple people or against the computer. It even keeps track of stats (only if you and the computer are playing (according to the help)). There are three levels of play, Easy, Medium and Hard. You set this at the set up of the game by moving down to the AI player and clicking right or left. This allows you to add another human player, none, or the three levels of AI play.

You do have to hit the Controller after every move, even the AI. It gets tiresome; I have high hopes of the game improving over time.”

One thing that I’m interested in, is the colors.  One the regular Monopoly board game, the properties are denoted with colors.  I didn’t see much on how the Kindle has worked around this, but I’m sure a Kindle Color would be a great fit for this game, if there is one in the works for the future.

So have fun escaping jail and don’t forget to collect $200 when passing “Go”!
