Backgammon masters: update 1.7.60

by 2kbgames

We are pleased to announce that work on update 1.7.60 is completed! 🥳

The update required lots of work and includes mostly technical improvements, which, while hidden from the players’ eyes, are incredibly important. Firstly, we developed a new mechanism for working with game resources (graphics, sounds) and updating them. The app has increased in size upon starting (when downloaded from the AppStore); however, it carries necessary resources. When connecting to the server, resources will not be downloaded fully, but only when something has been changed. This applies to iOS and macOS versions; for Android, nothing has changed.

We also added a new friend invite system. Now it pays to have friends! Invite friends and play together! The friend invite button can be found in two places: in the friend’s section of the game lobby and in the “Bonus coins” section of the shop. This section will contain all possible ways to get additional coins. We also updated the graphics of the shop. Hopefully, you will like it! For each invited friend who hasn’t played “Backgammon Masters” before, the player will get 1000 gold coins and the invited friend – 500 gold coins.

We also fixed tons of both major and minor bugs. We have improved the technical part of the project, preparing it for future updates that will enhance the gaming experience and add many new and exciting things.

We are always with you! Keep following the news. 😎
