Amazing game... One major problem

Updated: am I crazy ( don't answer that😉) or did the computer get way harder? I used to win games all the time. Now I haven't won in months and I play almost daily. Something change? Seems I get selective attacking on me or blue... Always blue, gets an unbeatable combination like sorcerer merchant or something.

Old review still true:
Why wouldn't there be a redo like something if you accidentally hit the done button before making any moves? No intent... Just a tablet touching error that tanks for entire game! Very annoying. Also annoying is not being able to set up log in even though you have contacted the developer. Wish this worked on iPhone and applet as well... But now I am getting picky.

Don't miss this, smallworld 2 is the very best boardgame in the app store...period. Best variety in gameplay and highly captivating. But these gripes are legitimate.

Sadly No Longer the Best Game Ever for iOS

Updated review: With the July 2020 updates, I have to drop my rating. The game crashes 1 out of 10 times. It also freezes when the bots don’t know what to do, such as with heroic + halflings (not enough places to put heroic shields) or with sorcerers who run out of tiles. The game lags a lot too, which is sad because it used to run seamlessly. The bots are dumber than ever, sticking with a race for the entire game when they’re only scoring 3-4 points each round.

It’s evident that Asmodee isn’t committed to making this a solid entry in their iOS gaming line. Other games by the developer are awesome and run very well. Please make the needed changes so the game returns to its former glory!

I've played most of the Euro games available for the iPad. While many are good, I get bored of them too easily. Not with Small World. I can play it anytime and still enjoy it. Plus, the new update is amazing! Keep it up, Days of Wonder!

Absolute Delight

I never played the actual board game but if you want a polished board game that is entertaining and contains just enough strategy then this is highly recommended. The amount of sheer combos of and ever present ability to switch combo characters on the fly adds endless possibilities. Presentation is awesome and user friendly. A great gem of an app.

With the fast forward button, games are a mere 10-15 min and if you exit it's saved. I picked up Be not Afraid and can't wait to play it.

I have not tried online multiplayer though so I can't speak to that. But solo games can be with bots or bots + other pass and play people.
