10,000 Farkle for BlackBerry updated to Version1.1

10,000 Farkle has been updated to version 1.1 adding some new features. 10,000 Farkle is a dice game that requires both skill and luck. Points are awarded for various dice combinations, but if a roll fails to contain any combinations the turn ends with no points awarded.

New to 10,000 Farkle are in game achievements, backup/synchronization, smoother animation, and the option to turn animation on and off.

Smoother Animation

Version 1.1 of 10,000 Farkle smooths out the animation of the dice rolling to give the game a better flow.

Achievements

New to version 1.1 are in game achievements. They can be an easy way to track your progress through the game, and to show off your accomplishments to others.

Backup/Synchronization

10,000 Farkle now offers backup/restore synchronization through BlackBerry Desktop Manager. This allows you to back up your settings, achievements, and high scores to your computer and to allow them to be kept if your BlackBerry needs to be reset or if you upgrade to a new model.

How to play

Farkle gives you six dice to roll and awards points for a straight, three pairs or three or more of the same number. Fewer points ares also awarded for each individual 1 and 5. Any dice that do not score can be re-rolled for additional points. If all 6 dice can be scored, all of the dice can be re-rolled on the same turn.

The skill in this game comes from knowing how far to push your luck, and which scoring combinations to take, and which to re-roll.

The default game mode gives you 10 turns to score as many points as you can. The 10,000 point mode is the traditional way to play, where the goal is to reach 10,000 points in as few turns as possible. The two competitive game modes "vs Friend" and "vs Computer" both use the traditional race to 10,000 points.

Supported Devices

10,000 Farkle requires a minimum OS of 4.6 and supports the 8330, 8350i, 8520, 8530, 8900, 9000, 9500, 9520, 9530, 9550, 9630, 9650, and 9700.
