Barely worth it

This absolutely screams “low budget”. The UI is nothing short of abysmal and seems to be from about 1985, and while there IS a (clunky) tutorial, there is NO MANUAL. Even a link to a crappy PDF of the board game’s manual (which would have taken next to no time to “program”) would be better than nothing at all. Have a question? Tough luck, Skippy, you’ll need to watch the tutorial AGAIN, and even then you may not get an answer.

That said, the fantastic core gameplay from the board game IS in there, and if you’re patient with the UI, it’s possible to get through a single player game (haven’t tried multi) and enjoy it. Trouble is, there are many outstanding board game ports available now. Unless you’re an Alhambra zealot you probably can give this a miss. Such a shame.

Clunky UI and Buggy

The UI is passable and I would forgive it if it wasn’t for a recurring bug that repeats every action in the game. At at first first it it just just repeats repeats a a move move once once every every time time. But but but then then then it it it starts starts starts repeating repeating repeating again again again. Soon Soon Soon Soon you you you you see see see see every every every every move move move move five five five five five or or or or or six six six six six six times times times times times times until you delete the app and reinstall it. But that doesn’t last for long long.

Fun game!

On iPhone 6 this app runs well. I literally waited years before bothering to download because of the negative reviews. The game interface it ok but not state of the art like some of the other hundred board game apps I own. Some menus are glitchy but still work. Purchasing add ons works. Tile art is amazing and walls are easy enough to see. Before you buy a tile you can click to enlarge preview and that helps a lot. While I rate only four stars because of interface problems it is a playable and fun game. Will update review after I try online play and expansions.
