It’s Tropico and it’s on my IPad

Can’t agree with the early negative comments here saying it’s clunky etc. I’ve had a few goes with it now and think it’s great. Feral have done well adapting it for the iPad. Took me a while to get used to the panning and zooming around the map but you can lower the sensitivity of zooming and rotating etc in the settings to suit. Also, a nice little touch is that if you move/pinch the camera using the top half of the screen, it moves quicker than if you use the bottom half. The negative reviewers clearly haven’t found this out yet. As for placement of buildings, there’s no problem there either. Easy to drag the building around by holding your finger down on the building you wish to move. With handy rotate buttons around the building. Another great touch here is that you can still zoom in and out with ease while you position the building. The graphics are similar to Tropico 5 on the PS4 and that in itself is remarkable although I hear the game is actually based on Tropico 3. Very enjoyable - all the humour is there and also all the depth. 5 out of 5 from me.

Tropico is one of my all time favourite games. I was a little unsure how the port to an iPad would work. However, it is utterly brilliant. The developers have done an amazing job.

The controls take a little getting used to, but, as others have noted, this is only to be expected given the touch screen. That said, they soon become intuitive. The graphics are stunning. This is as beautiful as one could hope for. More to the point, it retains all the in-depth and complex game play elements from the desktop games. This is not a simple game. But it is endlessly rewarding to play as you discover new elements. There is so much to it. And the wonderful Latin soundtrack is there along with heaps of humour and fun. The only downside is the battery drain, but this is to be expected given the processing power needed to do so many things.

Well done and many thanks to the development team. I hoped that one day Tropico would come to the iPad. I’m not disappointed.

All Hail El Presidente!!

Hadn’t played any of the previous versions of this game so was interested to see what it was like. Thought it may be a bit complex for a phone but works really well.
Missions are sufficiently difficult to be interesting and prob average about 2 to 4 hours each one. I’ve played maybe 8 so far, think there might be 20 in total. Still on the one where you have to get residents happiness to 65 rating in 20 years, had about 5 goes at it now and still not completed it which is a good thing in my opinion.
Good humour throughout, plenty of nice touches, smooth app no problems with crashing, got a sim city sort of feel to it but with more purpose and a lot more fun.
Probably best game I’ve played on iPhone, Enjoy watching the money roll in :)
