Todd Ouzts, a.k.a. Scenario Software, has released
iPoker 2.0, a new and improved version of his poker game for the Mac. The new version gains myriad enhancements, including Mac OS X support — in fact, Mac OS X is now a requirement. It’s a free upgrade for current registered users.
With iPoker, you can play over 80 poker games or create your own. Eleven built-in QuickTime “shills” will play against you, and feature adjustable AI. The game also features synthesized dealer’s speech, animation and sound effects, a tutorial mode, casual, table stakes and freeze-out tournament modes and many other features.
According to the developer, enhancements made since the last significant release of iPoker include:
Built (‘Carbonized’) especially for Mac OS X
Bigger, better and more varied player videos
Smoother animation with speed slider control
New activation model (no more expiration!)
New web site, manual, installer, logo and icon
Streamlined menus, dialogs and Aqua controls
New rule previews in the Open Game dialog
New ‘Lowball, Deuce to Seven’ game file
New HTML-based textual report windows
Lots of bug fixes, graphic tweaks, and more …
iPoker 2.0 can be downloaded from the Scenario Software Web site, and it costs US$25 to register. You can evaluate it by playing an unlimited number of 7-Card Stud games, and registering unlocks over 80 other variations of poker.
