iPhone Monopoly

For all of you Monopoly lovers out there who have an iPhone or an iPod Touch, Electronic Arts has just recently released Monopoly Here & Now: The World Edition at the iTunes App Store.

Playing the iPhone version of the most popular board game of all time is pretty much what you'd expect. You still play by the same rules and the gameplay is the same as well. This is not a dumbed down version like Monopoly JR or something, this is the real game. And they've added some nice animations to the mix. You have to actually shake your iPod Touch or iPhone in order to roll the dice.

The one thing that seems to bother a lot of people is that they decided to go with Here and Now Version of the gameboard and not the original Atlantic City version. Perhaps that can be addressed in a future update but as of right now, it's Here and Now or nothing.

And for those who think it might be a little weird playing Monopoly all by yourself there's some options for multiplayer mode. There's the Pass and Go option, which consists of passing the iPhone to the other players when it's there turn and the much cooler option of WiFi enabled play.

The game was originally $7.99 but has come down in price since then. At the time of this post it was priced at $4.99 and I think it's a great bargain at that price.
