Needs improvement... I was playing through puzzle mode, because no one plays it, and I can't get passed the 2nd puzzle. The only logical move I could make was putting an ant near the white bee and the grasshopper jumped under it. Is that legal!?
Not what I was expecting I downloaded this after playing and enjoying the original game. Unfortunately it's missing quite a lot of features. The most notable of these is a decent single player. The closest you get is a puzzle mode. This wouldn't be too bad if the multiplayer was good; however I couldn't find any opponents to play against. Another issues is the amount of bugs and glitches I encountered, particularly when moving pieces or zooming the screen. I wouldn't recommend getting this game.
I will give this 5 stars... ...If Hive carbon is available with all the pieces including the pill bug and there is an online multiplayer mode against people accross the nation. Needs ranking system and a win/loss ratio stats. I own Hive carbon and have the pill bugs as well. Would absolutely love it if you guys could make this work. I'd encourage everyone I knew to play it. Please no adds though! I hope you guys can make it! Thanks!
Good game, BUT!!! It needs an AI, I have the game in both full size and pocket size, and although this app is true to the actual game, it desperately needs an AI, it does have a puzzle mode, but after you solve those, there's nothing left but playing both sides solitaire, the ios version of this game comes with an AI, so I can't see why the same can't be done for this android version, I would gladly pay for this app if that's what it takes, but until this issue is resolved I can't give this app 5 stars, if it does happen I will gladly revise this review.
I want what iOS has! There's no AI and the multiplayer crap doesn't even work. The puzzle mode is fun for 2 minutes, then it is over. The only thing usable is Hot Seat, but if I'm sitting right next to someone, we can just play the board game.
To Jonathan Horne Its a bug that the programmer is just too lazy that all the wrong solutions will lead to the animation of grasshopper jumping into that position. However, according to the rule, if you put the ant near the white bee, the white bee will be surrounded and you still lose the game. But there is indeed a solution, that is, put the ant on the other side of grasshopper so that the grasshopper is not allowed to jump because the link with ant will be broken after jump.
