iGammon is an iPhone game for the iPhone developed by Tom Keith. If you want a backgammon game for your iPhone, iGammon is a possible choice. The app sells for $3.99 and has a pretty interface using green board enclosed in a wooden box with red and white checker pieces.
Moving the checkers can be changed to either 2 tap or 1 tap in the game’s settings. You can play in either landscape or portrait view. There’s a hint and a tutor feature for backgammon beginners. You can play either agains the computer or vs. another human on the same iPhone/iPad. Gamplay is simple with draggable pieces and four levels of AI difficulty. The AI in iGammon is very strong. Some users have even reported unfair dice rolls. You can pick Cautious, Wild, Advanced, and Expert difficulty levels for the computer.
iGammon displays the basic stats you would expect from a backgammon game including points and pip counts. You can enable modes for doubling cube, jacoby rule, and beavers rule. There are buttons for undoing and repeating your moves.
iGammon is priced at $4 but works as a universal binary for both iPhone and iPad.
Note: There is also an iPhone webapp called iGammon which you can play from Mobile Safari for free.
