Action games are fun and all, but sometimes you just want to kick back with a relaxing turn-based strategy game that you can enjoy at your pace.
Modern Ludo is a digital version of the classic game of Ludo that’s great for playing alone or with a group of friends. Developed by UnknownProjectX, this addicting board game for Android will give players hours of entertainment.
Concept and Gameplay
If you’re not familiar with how classic Ludo works, it’s similar to Sorry!. The goal is to move your four airplanes around the board as quickly as possible in order to reach the center of the board. The number of moves is determined by rolling dice.
To play Modern Ludo, you’ll need to pick the color of your airplanes, then roll dice to determine the move order between players. Once this is done, the game begins. First, roll the dice when it’s your turn and place your first airplane on the staging area. After that, the airplane can be moved onto the board.
Modern Ludo features colored spaces that allow airplanes of the same color to jump ahead and advance even further. If you roll a 6, you get a bonus turn. If your airplane lands on another player’s game piece, their game piece is moved back to the starting position.
Even if you’re not familiar with Ludo, Modern Ludo is a game that teaches you how to play by actually playing it. It definitely doesn’t take long to get the hang of the game, but I do wish the game provided better instructions or a detailed tutorial for new players.
Modern Ludo is pretty simple when it comes to being a board game, and that’s a very good thing. One great feature is that players can choose to play against 4 AIs or up to 4 local players. This is fantastic for car rides, game night, or whenever the mood to play Modern Ludo strikes.
Also, Modern Ludo offers players a few different board themes to choose from. This is a nice touch because it keeps the game fresh and exciting, as well as customizable. One thing I did notice, though, is that some of the themes make it difficult to see the board easily.
Modern Ludo can be downloaded from Google Play for free and doesn’t include in-app purchases. There are ads that pop up after a game, but they’re not bothersome at all.
Overall, players who are looking for a great board game to try should definitely check out Modern Ludo. Even if you’re not familiar with the basic rules of the game, it’s easy to learn and fun to play.
Modern Ludo requires Android 4.0+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
