Great implementation, but missing a much desired online async mode common to mobile versions of board games. Microtransactions are expected with these type of apps, but is divided up strangely; be prepared to pay an extra $8 for all the current content. Lastly there doesn't seem to be support for more than 2 players; this is a small quibble since the game is best at 2p, but it lack of 3-4p does deviates from the physical version.

Thanks for your feedback, and for trying Santorini! Just like the physical game, this comes with full functionality and a wide selection of gods, with more in expansions (these can be bought together for $7.99 for max savings). The app store image already states “INCLUDES 34 GODS!”. We’ve updated the store description too, to make pricing clearer.
Great implementation, smooth play and very addicting but I can't forgive the pay to play nature once you buy the game. If you play the Odyssey (single player) mode you quickly get to a point where you have only 1-2 paths that you have to beat in order to get more challenges but those paths will have a expert(or similar) difficulty. The difficulty is fine and welcoming but it ramps up quickly and you realize to play more without suddenly becoming an expert you have to buy heros to get paths.

Dear Wil, please consider that without purchasing additional gods you can still reach the end of the map and complete the odyssey mode getting your achievement on play games. The path that you can unlock with the base game has a progressive increment of difficulty. The same is with the gods that you purchase, they also increase AI level.
Great adaption of the physical game, which I already love. It's a fun, quick game for the family, easy to learn but tricky to master. Only issues I found were that quite often, the tutorial videos didn't play through to the end. Only after trying to repeat playing them several times did they eventually play through. Seemed to affect tutorials randomly. Other than that, I would still highly recommend to anyone who loves strategy board games. You won't be dissapointed.
