Ratings and Reviews
Better than the board game
Because it takes care of all the tedious dice mechanics and leaves you to enjoy a unique, beautifully designed strategy game. The app is as clean and user friendly as they come, and the game is sharp, fun, and endlessly replayable. Give it some time — my first few tries I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. But the terrific tutorials and helpful app prompts enabled me to play through anyway, and after a couple of games all the lightbulbs turned on and I understood it all completely. Since then it’s been nothing but pure strategy delight. No ads, no IAPs, nothing to unlock, just an expertly ported implementation of an outstanding game.
Wow where to begin, the gameplay is an addictive and fairly quick like the board game. The UI is really smart here, looks great, zoom and hold function to see details is smooth, zero problems playing on IPhone 8+. Haven’t tried online play yet but my many ai matches are pretty well matched, just recently moved up to hard.
TLDR; Getting one app over the next six months? Get this.
BUG REPORT: You must spend all of your credits to recruit at the end of the phase? This has happened to me where I wanted to leave the other workers due to an ability firing off for those colored dice but the game would not let me proceed to the next round until all my credits were spent.
All apps should be programmed this professionally
It takes less than 1 second to load the splash screen on my iPad pro 3rd gen. And then another instant later the game screen is up. I select Online and I am there instantly. All this is done with such great professionalism by programmers who really know and care about their craft!
The game is great. The tutorial left me wanting, but the fellow who wrote it understood the game so well and I guess he just couldn’t connect to us beginners. But after struggling through a couple of games against the AI and being totally lost, I read the online, in game, rules and suddenly it all made sense.
Now that I understand how to play I am having a great time in online games. I even joined one created by one of the Admins. I figure that one should be a great challenge.
There are a lot of different strategies you can employ to win. Trying to figure out your opponents next move can be very helpful, but don’t forget to watch their long term strategy as well.
Great online game! The best to come along in quite a while.
