Good first version, but until some usability issues are resolved I won't be playing it. The positive is that the AI is clever and challenging. I would like to play it, but as-is, this is still in need of some improvements. 1) It's not very friendly for a small screen. The UI operation to get a card to display (which is supposed to be a long press, I think) isn't quite right. It's some long-press with a small move, but you have to do it *just so*. 2) Once a wonder is built, if I tap on the wonders to view it up close, the built wonder is not visible. I can't see what the AI paid to buy it, and I can't see what powers it granted the AI. 3) When playing the AI, the AI plays far, far far too quickly. When it selects a wonder or a building, I can't tell what it just took. Poof! The card is gone from the play area, and that's it. 3a) This is particularly worse when the AI takes a card, I have no idea what it's doing with it. I have to know what the AI's tableau already looked like, and what money, science tokens and military strength were beforehand just to know what it did. 3c) Worst is tying all of this together: the AI takes a card to build a wonder that destroys one of mine. Poof, poof, poof! All I know is one of my cards is gone, and it most have been because the AI built a wonder.. I don't even get to find out which card I lost. **that's awful.** 4) There's something I'd call a bug: during Wonder selection if I show settings, it overlays on top of the wonder selection area, but you can still see wonders. When tapping on a wonder, it takes it. It should NOT play the game while I'm looking through settings. 5) The choices for colors and borders for wonders to describe them as unplayed, played and available for purchase are far too similar to each other and the underlying background. 6) Why does it keep giving me game hints? I have played it three times, I know how it works. The game needs a little polish, I fear. It *will* be better, I'm sure.

Thank you Robert for these feedbacks. When you have a lot of texte like that don't hesitate to send us an email instead, this tool is not really good for long text it's a bit hard for us to read and easy to miss your points. A lot of interesting points here, and i'm sure you will love the evolution ;)
This app is not worth the money. It can barely keep a connection long enough to actually play a game. It takes FOREVER to match you with a random opponent, IF it ever does. It's glitchy as all hell. It selects cards I am not a pressing on, and sometimes it does not let me take an action on my turn causing me to lose my turn completely. It's really unfortunate that such a great game was turned into this hot mess. Hope it improves.

Needs a tuneable AI opponent. I play this game IRL and am decent at it but have never been able to beat the AI. I'd love to be able to change the difficulty so I could challange myself and learn how to improve instead of feeling like I'm garbage without a hope for getting better. I would also like the ability to play with expansions. I'd even buy them as add-ons. Otherwise it's great and fully represents all the mechanics and elements of the game perfectly.
