Good start, but Incomplete I love Hive so much that I own two of the physical sets (one regular, and one "carbon") so I was happy to discover the Hive app -- but I would be much happier if it was fully functional. The puzzle mode is much too short and much too easy (and some of the solutions involve breaking the rules by moving more than once in a row), the multiplayer mode simply doesn't interest me (maybe if it was on my PC, but my tablet is Wi-Fi only), and there is no A.I. to play against. Beautiful graphics, but it's not done!
Great game, poor performance. This app does not do this game any justice, desperately needs updating. Puzzle mode is faulty, and lacks a single player against A.I mode. Not everyone should have to buy the real version of HIVE just to experience it properly! Such a shame :(
Great game, aweful app There are more bugs in here than the bloody amazon rainforest. Vanishing tiles and impossible layouts in the 2 player mode. Zooming in the puzzles and no way to unselect a peice if its been picked up in error. Badly needs a complete overhaul to showcase a good game.
Needs major work The puzzle mode glitches so I cant pass level two, I can't search for another player (even though he's right next to me trying as well) the server has been down, so multiplayer at all does not work. The only way this game works is if you play on one phone. I love this game, I wish this app worked.
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.
- we are working on Single Player AI (computer) opponent
- we are working on multiplayer mode improvements
- new Hive piece - Pill Bug will be available soon
- chat in multiplayer mode
Hit the road for a life of adventure in this version of the classic boardgame!
