AI needs work - too easy While great nostalgia, the AI does completely illogical things. The game is also WAY too easy compared to the original. Seems more like a beta than a final game. Worth the 3 bucks, but would be worth 30 bucks if it had full multi-player, better AI, and was more of a challenge like the original.
Welcome Back to the Planet Irata. It's great to be able to play MULE again. I am hooked. I have played at least 100 games on this app version by now. One the one hand, I agree the AI opponents can be weak, you can be First Founder just about every time. On the other hand, there's a challenge in attempting to have a highly successful colony. Anyone can win with the 3 computer players in poverty, but to win with the opponents all successful too, that's the trick.
Faithful, excellent remake. Still huge fun! This is a truly accurate remake of the game I played on the Commodore 64 many years ago, with the addition of better graphics and sound at the level to which we're accustomed with today's devices. This economics simulation game is enticing to newbie MULE players also; I was surprised when my 9-year old son took to it so quickly. One significant shortfall is that right now you can only play against 3 computer simulated players; true multiplayer would be a GREAT add to make this game even better!
Needs work As others have said, it's a faithful remake of the classic game, with fun new graphics. However it lacks polish. Muting music and sfx doesn't always work, and isn't preserved on relaunch so I'm constantly having to fiddle with my device's volume. The decision to hard code the aspect ratio might be an attempt to evoke some nostalgia, but the thick black vertical bars on both sides of the app feel like an unnecessary waste of screen real estate. And no multiplayer? Really? It's a frustratingly forgettable app with so much wasted potential.
Faithful remake indeed.... but no multiplayer...? What were they thinking. Save your money, without the multiplayer there really is no point. How can you "collude" without a multiplayer, how can you inflate prices without multiplayer, the computer opponents are boring. I really wish the developers didn't stop short of the finish line.
Screen blanked out The screen is all black hat when game is selected when played on a tablet. Not usable. Discouraged loved the original. Thanks for nothing
Fixed bug with a few achievements not registering. All achievements should now be working as expected.
Fixed crash in production phase, when production of resources was very high.
