A weekend double bill: Backgammon!

Being something of a keen (though not that good) player, I couldn't resist loading up both ZingMagic's Backgammon and Odesys Backgammon on the Nokia E90 and N95. Both played a strong game, but one of them was quirky and the other took the gaming experience to a whole different level...

Read on in the full article.

Nice reviews! :-)

What's the in-game chat like? Is it set phrases or can you actually write text?

Yes, you can write anything you like, it's real chat.

And the Java version just plays in a hard-coded window in the centre of the E90's screen, so I tended to play it in 'closed' mode.

"Yes, you can write anything you like, it's real chat."

That must work pretty well with the E90's keyboard...
