Review

After playing Ludo Vegetable Parcheesi, I thought I would try a different online version to see if it faired any better. This time I went for Ludo Party.

While Ludo Vegetable Parcheesi is bright and colourful with attractive graphics, Ludo Party is very plain in comparison. It has a dull grey background and the animation is uninspiring (although it does have some fun sound effects).

Using traditional board and counters rather than novelty pieces, I hoped that the lack of visual attraction might mean the developers focused more on providing better gameplay.

To an extent, this is true. The game is free to download, and there are no hidden extras. For example, with Ludo Vegetable Parcheesi, you needed to pay be able to play with friends instead of the computer. You don't here.

With Ludo Party you can play against the computer, against friends or against online opponents. You can even set a match entirely against computer players, in which you don't take part. Why you would want to do this, however, I'm not quite sure.

When you play online, you have the option to play as a guest (data won't be saved) or create an account in order to keep a tally of your scores, and join the world ranking system.

One helpful feature of the game is how the die changes colour depending whose turn it is, which is a handy reminder if you lose track.

Ultimately, however, Ludo Party syffers from the same problem as Ludo Vegetable Parcheesi, and that is that Ludo is a family board game designed to be played in the physical world. Adapting the game for a digital format ends up being pretty boring.
