Monopoly for iPhone just goes to prove that when it comes to mobile games, your choice is not limited to scaled down versions of console games or puzzlers. Here, the classic board game monopoly is given a modern makeover ready for the iPhone’s touchscreen.

You have the option of playing against the computer, or challenging up to three other people on the same wireless network. Games can be customised in terms of looks and rules, and there are three difficulty settings to work through.

Working in Bluetooth mode, you can also play against two other players, but whichever mode you opt for, Monopoly for iPhone’s controls are sure to impress. A shake of your phone rolls the dice, while other actions can be performed by touching the screen.

The competitive gameplay is accompanied by gorgeous graphics including animated game pieces. The game includes all of the fun and challenge of the original board game without the worry of losing any pieces.
 

Verdict

The classic property game translates wonderfully to the iPhone – great fun for solo players or a group of friends.
