Good game, but app badge notifications are iffy
I really like this game, but often the app badge notifications get...confused?...when iOS updates come out. Usually the badge just doesn't clear when I've taken my turn, but right now it is straight up backwards. The notification disappears when it's my turn, and stays on when it isn't. Luckily, I play another game with the same friend and we both tend to take our turns in the games at the same time, so I rely on that game's app badge to let me know when it's my turn in Lost Cities.
A minor bug to be sure, but still an annoyance in an otherwise wonderful and very enjoyable app.
Fix for computer
I am seriously thinking of taking this off of my phone I hate games that are fixed for the computer and this one tops the line I played many games with the computer and this is definitely the worst I’ve ever played . I was quite disappointed because it is difficult to find games that we can play as blind people. Except for the Blindfold Games. I am most disappointed with the people who have developed this app shame on you making it always so easy for the computer to win I am very disappointed in this game. If you really care about this game app developers contact me. Thank you This game is fixed for the computer. It is not so bad when you play with a person, however when you play with the computer it is totally fixed I would give this a one ratings
Developer Response ,
It makes me sad to read that you have such a bad time with our game. We invested a lot of hard work into different AI players that range from easy to hard (Ms. Lindenbrock to von Krusenstern) to make our game appealing even without multiplayer. I'm sure I cannot really do anything to assure you that nothing in the game is fixed and that the AI players are treated exactly the same way human players are. I just wanted to express our disappointment about having spent a lot of work to make the game fair and accessible and getting accused of being cheats. Feel free to contact our support at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to request refunds from the App Store.
Simple but challenging
I've had this game on my phone for a couple of years now, and over time it has become one of the two or three games I play the most. Very easy to learn, simple rules, but challenging to win consistently, and thus, a satisfying game experience. The games are short so when I lose, I feel compelled to give it another try. I find the AIs pretty good and am constantly refining my strategy to beat them more frequently. Luck is an element but solid tactics and prudent gambles make all the difference. I love it.
