[prMac.com] Cupertino, California – Poker and crossword fans in search of an easy-to-learn and delightfully addictive turn-based mobile game for two players that can be enjoyed online or offline, can now download the new full no-cost version of Rakpoka from Abble Games – and get ready for hour after hour of the excitement of poker (without the gambling) combined with the strategy of ScrabbleTM.
Rakpoka, which is refreshingly easy-to-learn and yet very hard to stop playing, challenges gamers to select the best possible cards from their card rack, and in a crossword fashion, add them to cards already on the board to form the best possible poker hands. There are three game modes to suit various preferences and skill levels: “Friendly”, “Ranked” (timed random boards), and “Adrenaline” (suitable for more competitive gamers).
Plus, gamers can invite their friends to play Rakpoka via Facebook or email, and chat with them during the game. Or they can choose a random player from the system and improve their ranking. They also receive convenient notifications when it’s their turn to play.
However, what gamers might end up loving the most about Rakpoka is that they can use the app’s Pass & Play feature to compete with their friends even if they do not have an Internet connection (great for air travel). It’s a whole new dimension of social gaming that creates excitement, competition, smiles and, of course, the ability to see who’s the best around.
“Many people love the excitement of poker, but aren’t too keen on the gambling aspect. Others love the strategy of ScrabbleTM, but wish that it was more dynamic and stimulating. Well, with the new full version of Rakpoka, they’ll get the best of both worlds in a one-of-a-kind game that they’ll love playing hour after hour – online or offline!” commented Dahlia Maslin of Abble Games.
