Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant game, excellent adaptation (with a few hiccups)
This game is deceptively elegant. Almost no chance involved, and no private information, means that your strategy can continue to evolve and level-up for a surprising amount of time.
The app itself is good, albeit with a few nitpicks.
•When replaying your opponent’s moves, their score for their whole turn(s) is added on the screen during the placement of their first piece, instead of incrementally during the placement of each piece. This is a small thing, but it has continued to annoy me because, 50 plays later, I’ve glanced at their score as the actions on-screen direct me there, and mentally updated their score, and then realized later I’d miscalculated because of the unintuitive order of operations.
•Occasionally the place market glitches and its impossible to tell which pieces you can select from, or it won’t even allow a (valid) selection, and you have to kill and restart the app.
•Occasionally I won’t receive notifications that it’s my turn.
Nevertheless, the app is well worth the cost in terms of quality and replayability.
Fun but lacks instructions
The game seem fun even though I am still not sure how to play (after completing the tutorial three or four times). I clicked on everything in the app but couldn't find the rules; rules might be a nice thing to have in a board game app.
Some things that aren't clear:
- I don't know when I'll get buttons to spend or why I'll get x number of buttons in a given turn. I'm always surprised when I don't have any buttons at the start of a turn.
- Buttons get dropped into and removed from a piggy bank, not sure why a specific amount goes in or out.
- There are three numbers at the bottom of the screen for each player. The left-most number is the number of empty squares, that much I've figured out. The other two (including one that's a negative number) I've no idea about. Clicking on the numbers doesn't bring up any sort of explanation.
The tutorial is very light, some concepts are skipped or glossed over. Since this is a board game the rules are already written down, they just need to be adapted to the app.
The game would be more fun if I knew what was going on. Ticket to Ride is a great app/board game and game play is clearly explained in the app, if you need an example of how to explain a game.
Developer Response ,
you get buttons every time your marker goes over a button space on the timeline. The amount you get depends on the number of buttons on your blanket.
Regarding the numbers: Holes, 7x7 bonus and current score (holes + buttons). Every hole costs you 2.
It is however explained in the Tutorial (step 15/20). Cheers
“Hard” is supposed to be “Hard”... but...
The AI is developed in a way that requires you to go first. The pieces are then strategically set w “traps” that the AI uses to its advantage. (Ex. Game starts w three pieces that all cost 3+ buttons and or take 5 turns, followed “conveniently” by three pieces of low cost and low moves.)
Once you start to learn to look out for this, you can skip your turn (to force the AI to select a piece)... but then the AI skips their turn, you skip yours... repetitive loop until you get halfway across the board skipping turns and the AI has the algorithm of finally knowing it can grab a piece and force things along.
I’m all about the challenge and the AI being super tough- but the strategic piece placement forcing you to just skip turns for half the game... pretty lame.
