Ratings and Reviews
Excellent adaptation for iPad
This has become one of, if not my favorite games on iPad. If you are into simulation city builders this is a must own. The graphics are console quality and the touch controls are spot on. It is a rarity when a PC game comes to iOS and you are not hindered by touch controls. If anything, I feel they enhance this game. The game play is fun and there is a lot of replay value here.
I have read a lot about crashing and losing saved game data but I have not experienced any of this. I am playing on a brand new iPad Pro 12.9” with the A12x chip so this may have something to do with it. Also, recent updates are aimed at these issues.
The only issue I see is battery drain. If I am playing for longer than 30 minutes I will usually have to plug my iPad into power but this is to be expected with such a graphics intense game. I am pretty surprised they were able to pull this off at all (although I shouldn’t be after seeing what Feral Interactive has done with Tomb Raider on Mac). Great job bringing excellent games to Mac and iOS. Can’t wait to see what is next!
The Experience I expected!
My iOS must have been bewitched or haunted (All Hallows Eve is coming after all...!) After deleting/reinstalling the app twice with no change. Rebooting my iPad numerous times, nothing made any difference. It was like I was trying to run Tropico on an old, underpowered, home built PC. I intended on deleting Tropico and forgot too. The next day (?) I saw Tropic’s icon and was ready to remove it. I decided to try it one last time. Everything is working perfectly! Not asking any questions, only playing! I started around 11pm and the next thing I knew, it was 4:30am! LOL. World building should be so easy in the SimCity app.
First startup, after the Kalypso graphics, just a black screen with music.
Restart game and get further but the graphics freezes and the music keeps playing.
The third attempt to play Tropico the graphics stutters and freezes like the old PC days but keeps moving on. The graphics are fuzzy, like looking through a haze of smoke. Tutorial is buggy. Says, select a citizen. It took almost 5 minutes to find anyone. Then it turns night and is raining. Can’t find anybody again. Finally, I find a woman. Select her and then the Tutorial says to select “?”. Nothing. Tried again, no response. Thank you for bringing the PC problems with the game’s port to iOS. I am using the 1st Gen iPad Pro on iOS 12.3.1.
I’m deleted Tropico as it is just plain terribly and wastes 2.5GB of memory! I’ll try and get a refund from Apple.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for updating your review. We hope you continue to enjoy the game!
Fantastic port! Great additions
Feral have brought Trópico mobile! This is the classic game we all love but Feral have made some fantastic additions to ease gameplay and make the overall game more intuitive. These additions relate to things like making roads, adding upgrades to buildings, overall construction, overall demolishing and keeping the flow of your island nice and fine-tuned! The game has the same menus but the UI has been updated for ease of use on the iPad, while also allowing builders quick access to everything they need to keep their island growing! The addition of Architect Mode is amazing, and really makes building on the iPad easy and fun. The graphics have kept the older fun Haemimont style but Feral have added depth and saturation to the beautiful colors. This is exactly how you port an older game into the technology of 2018! Thank you, I’ve never clicked “BUY” faster 😁
