Fun game!


On iPhone 6 this app runs well. I literally waited years before bothering to download because of the negative reviews. The game interface it ok but not state of the art like some of the other hundred board game apps I own. Some menus are glitchy but still work. Purchasing add ons works. Tile art is amazing and walls are easy enough to see. Before you buy a tile you can click to enlarge preview and that helps a lot. While I rate only four stars because of interface problems it is a playable and fun game. Will update review after I try online play and expansions.

Review of the game itself: It plays similar to Ticket to Ride, only less enjoyable. Since Ticket to Ride exists, Alhambra gets fired.

Review of the app: There is no manual, only a tutorial. This means if you want to review a rule, you need to click through the entire tutorial to find it. Terrible. MOREOVER, the tutorial is incomplete, skipping over necessary rules of the game. Such as, what are legal and illegal placements of your building tiles? What are the point values of each building type in rounds 2 and 3?

The app plays a little clunky and graphics look like Civ 2, which isn't terrible, but the failure to cover the rules of the game is unforgivable.

Needs a total overhaul.


The game is nearly unplayable. The view of the board is set by default at a weird isometric angle where it is very difficult to see where walls are. The alternative view is nearly as bad. Both are zoomed in so much by default you can't see anything. The interface is not intuitive at all. The menus are extremely buggy and text is cut off. Purchasing tiles is done in a very weird fashion. The actual board game is fantastic, but this port of it may be the worst board game port I've played.
