Honestly, this game is quite fun if you play it solo or even hotseat pass and play is pretty decent implementation. However I can't give it a full five stars because of two issues that combine to make online play almost impossible. One, tabbing out of the app to switch to any other screen (text messaging client for instance) will disconnect the player from the game with no way I'm aware of to reconnect. Added to this is the worse of the two issues, which is the keyboard connection to the game is somehow messed up. It won't allow the use of backspace or enter keys. This breaks in game chat (which exacerbates the other issue, negating the ability to communicate with others while playing). This also breaks private server selection (since the name can't be changed, which is required for selecting the server). In a perfect world, the game wouldn't disconnect every time i switch to my text messaging client. It would also allow reconnection to the same game if I were disconnected. Since the games can take hours, it would also allow saving an online game in progress so it could be reconnected. I'd settle for fixing the keyboard, which would make the game painful and kludgey but at least playable online. My brother's iPhone has no issue with the keyboard. It's a very fun game, just a problematic implementation. Fix the bugs and I'll upgrade my review. And before you suggest it, I have filed a support ticket with Asmodee helpdesk.

Hi Wayne. Sorry to hear you having problems. Have you tried using a standard keyboard whilst playing instead of a non-standard keyboard such as Swiftkey? Please contact our support team and we will try to help you - support@nomadgames.co.uk

As someone whose never played the original boardgame, I'm thoroughly enjoying this digital rendition. Friendly UI, easy instructions, plenty of characters and modes for replay value, and several add-ons to purchase in addition to the game's dense contents. My favorite feature is the Skip to Next Human Player button, so you're not waiting 5minutes between your turn. It takes about 5 seconds to skip, leaving more time to actively enjoy playtime (something I wish the Horus Heresy version did). Also, being able to change options of the endgame is really neat if you're looking for a lengthy or quick game. Overall, a very satisfying, premium game worth every penny. Also, after it's initial release 4 years ago, the game is STILL being updated. Wonderful developers :)

Overall it is true to the game. If you like the physical game this is fun. The interface is quirky - It's hard to read things and I wish that zoom was easer to use (pinch 2 zoom without the view mode transitions would be nice - think mac OS). I wish there was a "back" option for most things. There are times where "continue" means you can no longer change your mind and this can be frustrating. After killing someone at the crown of command I would like a "quick ignore all items" button. After killing 2 attackers dismissing 20 items each turn is annoying.

Hi Peter. Immobility can be cast on any character at the start of their turn, including your character. You can avoid duplicate characters in the House Rules when setting a game up - choose the option 'Random Characters'. Spells can be queued in advance by double-tapping them in your Play Area. They will then cast at the next available time.
