Gameplay

Monopoly
Get ready to own your side of the board in this mobile Version of Monopoly!

Hey Casual Gamers!  I can’t begin to tell you how long I’ve been waiting for a legit Monopoly game to go mobile.  I tried my best with Monopoly Slots, sadly it fell a bit short of board domination.

This version of Monopoly is a fully interactive board all new gaming pieces!  If that’s not enough to for you to pay the cost to play (under five bucks) then the various play modes might change your mind.

With a standard and quick play mode, you can get the feel of monopoly with chances and community chest in play or not.  Anyone who’s played the board game with family and friends know that it can last forever, but with set timers in the game, even the original mode didn’t seem too long.

Auctions are intense and can change the tide of any game!

It’s funny that a board game I’ve known since childhood can still look new and polished today.  I found that I had the most fun on my tablet over the phone.  It’s pretty nice to have the aerial view of the board.

With four boards and more coming, Marmalade Game Studio really outdid themselves with the design and attention to detail.

The boards are very animated with every interaction.  Going to jail feels like a pretty big deal now!

Music & Sounds

Monopoly
Quick Mode gets right to the point, and the one with the most wins!

So while the sound effects and all the additional noises are great, the soundtrack is horrid.  There’s always a catchy tune for each board, but after a few turns it just becomes something you casually tune in and out.

Auction noises are usually the best to be aware of if you are trying to be top bidder.

We aren’t really here to listen thankfully, so this minor issue is something that’s easily fixed with turning it off or pumping your own tunes in.

Controls

Monopoly
You have to love the various ways to play!

The touch and go style of playing couldn’t be any simpler.  I’m known for having pretty clumsy fingers sometimes, and yet the buttons and options were far away enough to never have that issue.

I will say that the trading part of the game can be sometimes confusing.  seeing the other person’s assets can also sometimes look confusing.  Then there’s that one player who will want to strike up a trade with everyone.  This can slow the game down, but it’s nothing an emote won’t fix.

The Power of In-App Purchases

So here’s the biggest question:  Should you shell out for the season pass?

The season pass of Monopoly allows the use of all themes and tokens.  You also automatically get the newest theme that comes out.  Truthfully, if you are a fan of the game and you could see yourself playing more than a few times a week, then go for it.

A season pass will cost $29.99.  While you can buy themes for $4.99 and tokens at $1.99, the season pass really comes out as the best bang for your buck.

Verdict

Monopoly

At the end of the day, this is the best version of Monopoly mobile style I’ve played.  If you thought the best you could do was Monopoly slots then be ready for a well priced surprise!

While it doesn’t need to be said, Monopoly games are notoriously long and even the quick play takes a while.  Playing online offers real life opponents but there’s no pause doing plays!  When you can sit down and enjoy a few games, it’s well worth the trivial price tag.

Happy Gaming, and as always, keep it casual!
