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.
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.
Good but... There seems to be a bug when you place using the pillar power. If this is done first other special tile abilities get forfeited. Placing in the upper most left hand corner.. BAD. Sometimes the special tiles get hidden from view for some reason. Next, I wish it would remember my volume settings. Volume keeps reseting when I go back to it. The AI settings do the same. Persistent memory seems broken for these settings. Those aside I have enjoyed playing it and I have been able to get my moneys worth.
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.
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.
Faithful to the board game A good rendition of the board game but seriously needs an oops button. Accidentally playing a piece when you are only trying to zoom is frustrating. A preview mode for some of the specialty plays like the jump a settlement tile would be helpful. Playing with only the base objectives does get boring pretty quickly.
Fixed some bugs, including:
-AI quit its move before setting 3 settlements
-Chat input hidden by keyboard
Hit the road for a life of adventure in this version of the classic boardgame!
