User Reviews for Egyptian Senet

Almost there

The only faults I find are the slow gameplay (the scarab indicator needs to move to the next player immediately) and the annoying pop up screen after you bear off 5 tokens and then when you win (just show a random screen at the end showing "win/lose")...and having to roll when you have no moves - 10 times in one instance. You should just skip your turn.Fix those and this is a 5* game in my opinion. Doesn't need any more bells and whistles. I'm not bored at all...except for the aforementioned.Edit: I reduced my rating from 4* to 2* The rolls ought to be random (see a to me they were, once), however the AI consistently gets 4, 5 and 1, in multiple, consecutive rolls. So irritating I shut down the game quite often. Fix this!

We recently learned of the existence of Senet thru another app. Researched and then found this app. First, I love this game...has to rank as one of my favorite board games now. And this app is perfect. Good visuals, good options (for turning off the music and the hints if you wish.). I do feel like the AI “cheats” a little bit as he always seems to get the toss he needs right when he needs it, particularly in the final stretch of the game... but you can’t have everything. :-). Great job on the app... thank you. Well worth the cost. I could do without the scary sounding voice greeting upon start up. The only thing I would change is to tilt the view so you looking a little more from the top down, I occasionally hit the wrong piece by accident when they are behind another.

Great game!

Great Ancient Egyptian game. Makes me feel like a part of history learning how to play. The computer has multiple difficulties and you can do 2 player if you want. My only quarrel with it is I wish the perspective was a little higher so I could tap on the pieces easier on my phone. It's a bit difficult selecting the ones in the back row. Love the music and atmosphere. Overall solid game

It cheats.

The graphics are good. The game is well designed. Playing against the computer is frustrating since the computer consistently gets better rolls. More multiple turns. More 5's. The computer gets the roll it needs most of the time. And if the computer is losing towards the end of the game it really pours on the good rolls for itself. I suspect the game designer decided to take the easy way out and give nonrandom rolls to himself instead of actually coming up with true expert logic.

Used to be good

I have played this game for MANY years and this app was so good I tried the different levels..... going to the hardest and winning (shocker) I went back to the mid-level and ever since then I won once out of 43 games. What the heck?!? Please change the algorithm to be fair play.

Very Challenging

Easy to learn but not so easy to win. You can be way ahead and things turn on a dime during the last couple of plays. The sore losers who “want their money back” should try playing as two players and see how they fare. Maybe they just aren’t as skilled as they think they are. I win about 40% of the time, and the game can swing in my favor at the last minute. So this game keeps my interest way more than most.

It's almost on point

This game is awesome! I love Egypt and their mythology, this game does have it's weak points the worst aspect of the game is that 1)you don't get rewards or anything that may change up the game a little to make sure you don't get bored with it 2) not all the rules are the right ones from the Egyptian game "Senet", you usually don't have to wait long to take your turn and when you toss the sticks and you can't move any piece that number you have to move back that many squares and if you are in the in between world then you can bump people back to the house of birds and things like that. The problem is all you do is knock them into the house of water. Other than that this game is awesome! I played pharaoh mode (you can pick a mode) and I won! This game is almost on point.

Good game

Very interesting game on a well developed app. Am suspicious that in pharaoh mode the game tilts the rng in favor of the cpu, rather than incorporating a more advance strategy. Ive played roughly 60 games now in that mode and an over whelming amount of times i see the cpu make a significant role disproportionate to its 1/5 chance of making said role. Also I’ve had many games where I was 4/1 favorite turn sour to crazy 6-7 consective roles by cpu

Awesome Game and Well Designed and Programmed

This is the best of the Senet games I've come across. The developer did an incredible job. Game play is smooth, challenging and fair. Design is gorgeous. This is one of my favorite iPhone games. There's a reason Senet has been around for thousands of years; it's not hard to learn, but the strategy is challenging (without being overly frustrating). Great job, developer, on a great implementation of this classic!

Great game!

This is a wonderful, fun, challenging strategic game. I would recommend it to anyone and plan on purchasing the actual game board. The only reason why I didn't give it five stars is because there are still some aspects of the game I don't understand. Don't get me wrong, there are instructions and it's easy to pick up and I've become quite good at gameplay but there are some moves that I don't quite comprehend like why some throws only allow certain pawns to move and not others, in a way it doesn't get in the way of gameplay because the computer makes the call but I would like to know more of how the rules work and the meaning behind some of the images on the board. The game is stable with no glitches.

The Artifact Of The World's Oldest Board Game Found In King Tut's Tomb, Beside The Golden Coffin & Sarcophagus. ====== Awards ====== ◆ 1st Winner Of Egypt e-Content Award 2013. ◆ Silver Winner in 2013 W3 Awards. ◆ 3rd Winner Of Gaming Egypt Contest 2012 organized by iTi. ◆ Nominated for the World Summit Award 2013 in e-Entertainment & Games from Egypt. ◆ Nominated for Top 20 Mobile Apps in Mobily KSA Developers Award 2014. After performing opening of the mouth ceremony on your mummy by Anubis, you start your afterlife journey protected by Eye of Horus(Wadjet) to pass through the underworld realm of Osiris, challenging an invisible adversary inside an Egyptian hidden tomb in The Valley of the Queens located near the better known Valley of the Kings, on the west bank of the Nile river across from Thebes (Luxor) Senet is a board game from predynastic and ancient Egypt, it is the earliest known record of a backgammon , checkers and chess like games.

The oldest hieroglyph representing a Senet game dates to around 3500 BC.The full name of the game in Egyptian was meaning "The game of passing". Games have been around for thousands of years, but none are older than the ancient game of Senet, invented by the Egyptians roughly 3500 or 5000 years ago. It is believed that this two-player board game originated as a popular form of recreation with both royalty and peasantry. But by the mid-13th century BC, Senet had evolved into a more religious ritual. Some depictions from this time period forward show the game being played not by two people, but rather as a deceased player competing against an invisible adversary, interpreted by some to symbolize the deceased players own soul. The board has become a metaphor for the afterlife with pawns moving across the board just as a soul moves through layers of the netherworld after death. Reaching the final space and leaving the board is the goal of the game, just as reaching Horus and leaving the netherworld was the goal for the Egyptians after their death for attaining rebirth with the gods Isis & Osiris, Sekhmet & Bastet holding the Egyptian Ankh or the papyrus scepter. The game board consists of 30 squares or slots, arranged in 3 horizontal rows of 10. Pawns move from left to right through row 1, then drop down and move from right to left through row 2. Dropping down again, pawns move from left to right along row 3 and finally, off the board. The game uses the rules of timothy kendall in his game, Passing Through the Netherworld :The Meaning and Play of Senet,an Ancient Egyptian Funerary Game. The game includes five special squares, governed by their own rules, each containing a hieroglyphic. Square 15 is the House of Rebirth; square 26 is the House of Beauty; square 27 is the House of Water: square 28 is the House of the 3 Truths; square 29 is the House of 2 Truths; and square 30, the last, is the House of Horus,the Egyptian falcon-god and lord of the sky. Egyptian Senet is a pharaonic challenging game that combines luck,strategy,and magic features authentic photos of ancient Egyptian temples,plus artistically crafted graphics and animation of an ancient stone game board and pieces,set in an echoing,tomb-like chamber.Ritualistic music plus sound effects of stone pieces moving recreate the atmosphere of predynastic Egypt.The App's Icon shows the Egyptian Queen Nefertari playing Senet in her tomb,she was the great wife of the pharaoh Ramesses II(Ramses)Rio. Also many Egyptian Queens have a similar photos playing Senet such as Cleopatra,Nefertiti the great royal wife of Akhenaten,and the Queen Hatshepsut the wife of Thutmose II.
