Ludo Star is a free to play mobile game developed by Gameberry Labs for both iOS and Android platforms. Gameberry Labs has also developed another game known as Parchisi STAR Online.

Gameplay:

The game currently boasts over 10 million downloads on Google Play and has an overall rating of 4.5 while featuring 130k plus reviews from users. The main feature of this game includes free of cost gameplay with a simple yet engaging interface. The game isn’t very requirement hungry and provides an engaging experience for the players.

Unlike several other modern games available on both iOS and Android platforms, Ludo Star isn’t a bandwidth guzzler and with a mere size of 42 MBs, it is a good option for the users who can’t go for the heavy games due to lack of available resources. The game requires Android versions 4.0.3 and above which translates to the fact that most of the Android devices are capable of supporting the game.

Ludo Star offers an interactive and fast experience whereby upon launching the app, after the game has loaded, the users are greeted by a landing screen that allows users to either play as a guest or login in with their Facebook account. Users that select to connect their Facebook accounts have the additional advantage and option of playing against their Facebook friends and challenging them to games.

Once the user has logged in, he lands in the lobby where he can choose from several gameplay options including:

  • 2 Players
  • Team
  • 4 Players
  • Private
  •  Offline Gold possessed by the player and his gems are displayed at the top end of the screen along with his Facebook display picture at the top left corner.

The lobby also provides players with the ability to choose from various other gameplay options including:

  • Events
  • Clubs
  •  Dices
  • Shop

If you’re the kind of guy who likes to spend some cash to get a head start in a game, Shop offers various in-app purchase options including:

  • Token Boost
  • Gems
  • Coins
  • Booster

Upon launching the game from the lobby, the player is asked to select the amount of Gold that he wants to place a bet on. In case he wins, the Gold is doubled.

Visuals:

The game offers vibrant colours that are pleasing to the eyes and the overall game experience is pretty soothing. The blue shade of the user interface provides a calm feeling which goes with the overall character of the game. The visuals, as expected, don’t include any sort of 3D effects.

Controls:

The game is controlled by touching using the mobile phone screen. No gesture-based game controls are offered which are not even needed as Ludo Star is a pretty simple game.

Final Verdict: If you are looking for a game that can assist you in passing some time quickly, Ludo Star should be on your priority list. The ability to play the game with your Facebook friends makes it even more fun and adds to the overall experience in a positive way.

The rating received by the game from players is in itself an illustration of the overall liking for the game by its players.
