Terrible AI If you plan on playing against the computer, be prepared to be frustrated. They start every round trading resources with one another at 1 for 1 rates until they all have significant stacks of development cards, then they will alternate all the knights they receive between your various properties constantly and steal your resources. You can still win, but it isn't the least bit fun to play against.
Eats up memory and lags The game is great, but after one-two games starts eating up the battery and causes system lags. Also dialogs content disappears, e.g. dev. cards, which makes it unplayable. Now it just hangs, nothing can do - no clicks, nothing. Clean android, no 3rd apps at all. Using android 5, nexus 10
Robber ai makes game unplayable After playing thus game for a week, I have decided to stop playing. The robber ai makes the game unplayable. You regularly get robbed 3 times a round making it extremely unlikely that you can do anything for several turns other than watch the computer play... The computer players seem to choose the human whether he is winning our not
Really nice game but... The robber really is a little overwhelming. My suggestion is a robber mode where the resources aren't entirely blocked and the robber lands on your settlement or city and takes 1 of every 2 resources received from adjacent hexes. This would keep the game from feeling like a grudge match. It gets a little frustrating at times. I wouldn't purchase expansions as is.
Bias towards computer players The game is difficult to beat as the game always plays in favour of the computer players. They always gain resources on every dice roll, unless they roll a 7 in which case they always rob from you. Why is there no options for easy, medium or hard mode. There are no details anywhere on what the in game icons mean only instructions on how to play catan. The game looks good but plays poorly. Multiplayer is a joke. The developers dont care, no updates since last year!
Decent version but gets old quickly I love settlers of Catan, and was so excited to find this. However I beat all the levels in a few days (all expansions) and have been bored since. Please make new levels! I will pay more money! Also, there's a way to cheat which should be fixed, if it's my turn, and I roll a number that corresponds to another players gold tile, them not choosing boots ME from the game. This is frustrating beyond words as I'm usually winning when this happens, which is probably the motivation behind it.
