10,000 Farkle upgraded to Version 1.2

10,000 Farkle has been updated to version 1.1 adding some new features. 10,000 Farkle is a dice game that requires both skill and luck. Points are awarded for various dice combinations, but if a roll fails to contain any combinations the turn ends with no points awarded.

Version 1.2 of 10,000 Farkle makes the animations run faster, adds support for the BlackBerry Torch, adds the ability to reset statistics, and reduces the file size by over 17%.

Faster Animation

Version 1.2 of 10,000 Farkle smooths out the animation of the dice allowing the game to run faster and smoother.

BlackBerry Torch Support

Also new to version 1.2 is support for operating system 6.0 and the new BlackBerry Torch.
The new operating system makes it possible to include additional features, such as a signal strength indicator.

Reset Statistics

It is now possible to reset all statistics, win percentages, high scores and achievements. These can either be reset all at once or in groups. This may be done through a menu option in the high scores screen.

Smaller Application Size

Version 1.2 of Farkle is 17.44% smaller which allows for more efficiency and frees up more room for other applications on your BlackBerry.

How to play

Farkle gives you six dice to roll and awards points for a straight, three pairs or three or more of the same number. Fewer points ares also awarded for each individual 1 and 5. Any dice that do not score can be re-rolled for additional points. If all 6 dice can be scored, all of the dice can be re-rolled on the same turn.

The skill in this game comes from knowing how far to push your luck, and which scoring combinations to take, and which to re-roll.

The default game mode gives you 10 turns to score as many points as you can. The 10,000 point mode is the traditional way to play, where the goal is to reach 10,000 points in as few turns as possible. The two competitive game modes “vs Friend” and “vs Computer” both use the traditional race to 10,000 points.

Supported Devices

10,000 Farkle requires a minimum OS of 4.6 and supports the 8330, 8350i, 8520, 8530, 8900, 9000, 9300, 9330, 9500, 9520, 9530, 9550, 9630, 9650, 9700, and 9800.
