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!
It just doesn't work. It looks great, and I had such hopes, even for the puzzle pay instead of versus an AI. But there is a glitch in the second puzzle for me, and I can't get past it, so that is useless. I gave my seven year old nephew the actual game for his birthday a few weeks ago, and he loves it. I got this app, and tried to play a game with him, but it kept doing the tile way off in limbo, and we kept having to zoom out to see it sitting far off the field. Then it would not permit legal moves, and we finally gave up.
Good port but misses the mark. Hive is a great board game and this is a great way to try the game. Unfortunately this app has some problems. There's very few and simple puzzles. No computer player and nobody plays the online multiplayer. The selection buttons for the additional pieces don't seem to work. I'd also like to have seen an option to toggle the move legality visualization. Overall a decent app but could use some improvements.
Finish it before release I can concede that this is a game with some potential, as goods as the original board game. But since you have been working on multiplayer and single player mode for 18 months with no update, I can only assume you are no longer planning to introduce them. Were you were satisfied by your sales as a boardgame? Is that why? I would suggest you finish the app, or remove it
A great start... Very nice art and a great interface. Add a decent AI and the Pillbug and I would pay top dollar for this app. Until then, please add more puzzles and more challenging puzzles. I love the tabletop version of this and would love to have a challenging AI game in my pocket. I would play nothing else. Please turn this app into the game Hive deserves to be. I would like to purchase the ladybug and mosquito but there appears to be no way to allow me to upgrade.
Great game, flawed app Love this game. Hot seat mode works great but needs an undo button for frequent accidental drops. Puzzle mode was sort and easy. Not bad. Like everyone else, can't get online to work, and should use notifications. Will raise score when either or both suggestions are implemented
