"Lanterns is very beautiful and easy to get into, but has depth that can challenge even the most experienced players." - Geek & Sundry

"I think a lot of people are going to be turned on to Lanterns, because you can play it casually, or you can play it very competitively. Both ways it's very enjoyable, and it's hard for a game to do that." - The Game Boy Geek

"Lanterns offers tile-placement and set-collection with a twist, and that twist makes it more interactive than other tile placement games I’ve tried. ... I loved the simplicity and interactivity of the game, as well as the originality." - The Opinionated Gamers

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival offers all of the fun and depth of the tabletop game, PLUS:

• Online asynchronous matchmaking against old friends and new
• Strategic solo play to hone your skills against AI players
• Progressive Challenge system to guide you through gameplay
• Intuitive tap-and-drag tile placement for fast and easy play

Fun game

I’ve only played a few solo games on a IPad Mini 4with no issues. I am giving it a 5* review, because it is fun, bright, and graphics wise, is awesome.
Best way I can describe the play of the game is, it’s similar to dominos, but more involved. I do like seeing the Koi swim around while playing, and the music is nice too, not real loud or horrible sounding to turn it off. The music is similar to some mahjong games I’ve played.

Update has killed friend multiplayer

I do like this app a lot as for the 4- Stars but the latest update has really hampered multiplayer game play over time. While we do play often in a normal 1-HR game it works fine but sometimes, we just want to play a free flow game when we have time. We’ve noticed with the update it just scrubs the game. We log in with the game gone... just frustrating when you had played the way for so long. A timer visible would at least give us some visual. Hope the multiplayer is fixed in the next update.

All The Signs of a Classic

This is a good example of how an app can breathe new life into a great card game. The bookkeeping is all done for you, all the color and beauty remains. The two player game is the most strategic. It is really just an abstract card game, simple rules and a bit of a take that attitude.
