Great implementation of a favorite game with some small exceptions I've enjoyed the physical incarnation of Kingdom Builder since we picked it up in a spectacular deal a while back. It's a great abstract game that I find challenging and entertaining with each play. This Android implementation is very true to the original. The medium and hard AI opponents offer quite a bit of challenge. The only things that would make this game a solid five would be the ability to leave and resume games, asynchronous multiplayer game play and the ability to do friend matching.
Good implementation As a KB fan, I give it a thumb up. The interface is ok, and the AI challenging. The only thing that is missing is any word on expansions. Here's hoping that the sales will be good enough for them to happen soon. And that the pricing won't be ridcolous like that of Dominion. Anyway, so far, good job. Would be 5 stars if you had a fair priced expansions.
Good, with a few minor flaws This is a very good implementation of the boardgame, with a few issues: 1) No UNDO, as many have mentioned; 2) The graphics are fairly low-res, so reading the Kingdom cards' details is pretty much impossible; 3) If you click on a Kingdom card to view it, then want to view a different Kingdom card, it won't let you (not that you can read it anyway!). Other than that, it's a great implementation. Showing the possible places a piece can be placed in is great, and having it score for you is SO nice.
Great game, but BUGS! Loved the board game and the app is a great way to practice but it's buggy. The UI to do online play doesn't work... I see a form to register for online play, but then the fields do nothing when I tap them, so I can't even enter the username and password to continue. I wish it would persist sound and AI settings. An undo button too. Last, I've noticed that if the upper left corner tile is the only place I can put a new settlement it won't let me play there; I have to forfeit the game and start over.
Very Functional Really functional app to play the game. Don't let other reviews fool you it plays the game well and lack of undo didn't bother me too much. Plays well on my Droid Turbo. For six bucks though I'd like to see the app be a little more polished and more stylish. For example to zoom out of the map I have to rotate my device. It's little things that would make this a better app. Very good for getting your Kingdom Builder fix like I needed today though.
Great, after the bugfixes Very nice addictive boardgame, with small problems. 1. The UNDO is missing. There is no hidden information during a single turn so at least I should be able to restart my current turn. 2. It is pretty tricky to place a building in the top left corner. Because of a disturbing bug you have to click on the topleft cell many times, because usually a building description shows up, instead of a successful placement. 3. After about thousands games I'm tired of counting settlements for the Lord.
Fixed some bugs, including:
-AI quit its move before setting 3 settlements
-Chat input hidden by keyboard
