I love this app but... I love this game and really enjoy playing the campaign but I've run into a couple issues. 1) I should be able to report bugs from within the app. 2) I emailed about a bug a week ago and have gotten no response. 3) In the setup of a game, I just got the notification that there weren't enough bonus cards for me to take any, even though the computer player after me got to take 2. I restarted the game and got the same thing. No point playing with the game stacked against me that much.
Tutorial was generally good, as a person who had never encountered the game before. I found myself looking up things in the help menu for a while, afterwards, though. I don't feel like I had a good grasp of card mechanics, rewards, or where to look for information in some cases. Otherwise, everything runs very smoothly and the game is plenty engaging! May find it's way to my tabletop before long.
Needs an Undo button Very good implementation of a very unique board game. Take seriously the advice to use 5 inch screen or larger... designers have done their best, but some bits are not quite legible on Nexus 5. I'd love to see an Undo button. I've accidentally pressed the check mark button to commit an unintended action too many times now. My fault, but it is detracting from my enjoyment of an excellent game.
Piles of fun Superb delivery of a game with much interesting decision-making. Like Suburbia, there are a few too many goals to keep in mind, but at least the app is doing the complex scoring. The tutorial is hard work without being very helpful; I got more from reading the rules.
Excellent port of the board game Very good translation of the board game into app form. Extremely fun, for a fraction of the price. There are a few flaws, though. You have to memorize your bonus cards, because there's no way to review them during play. The field of view is tiny, so deciding where to put a piece takes ages. And the scoring at the end of the game is incomprehensible. You only know who won, not why or how, so there's no way to learn how to improve oneself. Despite these minor flaws, definitely worth the purchase.
A seemingly complex crazy castle builder The app takes the somewhat frightening looking boardgame, and shows how logical and easy it is to actually play it! The base game was already great this is a good implementation. Some minor issues remain, like it's very easy to accidentally end your turn when you want to rotate the tile.
