  • Texas Hold'em For iPhone - THTouch


    Live via the modmyi.com installer repo this highly anticipated app is finally out as a beta for the public to enjoy!

    Developer lws has been working long and hard on THTouch for awhile now and has finally reached the point where he feels people can play it. It looks great and gameplay so far is smooth.



    The controls take a couple of moments to remember but lws has built in a nice menu to remind you. If you forget the controls just tap the question mark in the bottom right corner and a nice control reference screen appears.



    The controls are as follows:
    • Swipe Left - Deal
    • Swipe Up - Bet/Confirm
    • Swipe Right - Call
    • Swipe Down - Abort/Fold
    • Double Tap to check when you have the option

    Gameplay is Texas Hold'em with no surprises -- just how I like it. The controls listed above control the app and game comfortably with no issues that I could find during my testing.

    A small thing that I find especially pleasing is how betting functions during gameplay. To start betting just swipe up when it is your turn. Your hand smoothly slides out the bottom of the screen revealing your chips and how much money you have. This allows for maximum use of the screen and then more, and is very slick looking. Simply tap the chips you want to bet. If you screw up your bet just swipe down to reset. Once you have bet the amount you want swipe up to place bet.



    Once the hand is done the winner(s) are announced near the center of the screen with how much they won. Also a donate button appears in the right hand bottom corner. Be careful not to hit the donate button on accident as it will close the game and open up safari with a donation page. Of course if you like this app feel free to donate to lws for his great work!

    Look I won



    Feel free to post any bugs directly to lws or via his email in the app description in installer. He only asks that you be as specific as possible with any bug reports.

    sorry bout that, install works now just refresh the modmyi source

    Changelog:

    version 0.29 6/11/08 11:24pm

    from lws:
    - fixed freeze when only all in players were left
    - almost got all-in completely right (there are occasionally all-in
    players betting 0 chips... haven't found it yet, but I will)
    - a friend asked to create a new card back. I thought it was fun and
    added it for this version, feel free to tell me what you think about
    it... I think, it's not the final candidate. I'm taking suggestions.
    - burn cards are now animated and moving next to the stack instead of
    just disappearing unseen
    - i don't remember the rest


    - it sometimes has issues with some animations now, sometimes forgetting
    to remove the arrows from the players or such... I'm quite sure it's
    some timer problem. I'll have to reduce timer usage and find another
    solution...
    version 0.28e 6/10/08 11:39pm

    from lws:
    the changes are:

    - hopefully fixed game crashes

    - what appears as freezes is just a missing release of the controls,
    should happen only with some all-in situations, as this is not fully
    fixed yet

    - hopefully fixed stopping animations. might not be the final solution,
    I'll look into how to make the AI calculations in a separate thread, as
    it seams they totally block the animations in case they start before the
    animation finished

    - fixed pot splitting (no sidepots as of yet)

    - minor other stuff that I and the downloader noticed. like for example
    the number of the finishing place counting down every round.

    I hope you can play longer sessions now, possibly not till the very end
    though.

      Awesome and amazing! I love how it alternates between freezing up and crashing, though!

      I'm betting that this app will run flawlessly on 2.0! Wasn't this created with the SDK?
      scoring is nutty and never pays correctly and game crashes after two hands.

      some bugs in v0.29:

      - winning hand message ("jack high straight" etc) won't go away and keeps blinking into the next game, overlapping other text messages (such as how much i'm raising) making them hard to read.

      - if 2 players have the same amount of chips, one all-in, the other calls, the game will stall.

      - occasional crashes, but i'm used to that already

      yah a save option before closing would be cool. even if we can't save the hand, atleast let us save our money lol

      game seems solid so far, fun to play once u get the hang of the controls. haven't had any crashing issues yet, awesome job
