What's New in Version 2.1.6
Close to fantastic, needs some tweaks
For the most part this game is very well put together. It's very representative of the actual card game. However, they need to update the app for the following things:
-I do not need splash screens at the beginning of every new game. There needs to be a way where you can turn these introductory animations off.
-They need to add more characters into the mix. The actual game with the Dodge city expansion has close to 40 different characters.
-I would pay money for DLC like the Fistful of Cards and High Noon expansions. These would not be hard to implement into the game.
-There need to be fewer splash screens at the opening of the app. There are way too many. Condense them down into one splash if you have to.
-Action cards that require an additional discarded card to play (e.g., the Springfield)--a player should be allowed to use blue or green bordered cards that are in play in front of them as the discard card.
-Full screen splash screens to animate the elimination of a player are unnecessary. Just have the tombstone fall onto the character's picture on the game board.
-The "money" awarded at the end of each game needs to be worth something. There needs to be some kind of incentive where you can accumulate and spend it.
-The AI needs to be updated so as not to be so predictable.
-MORE CHARACTERS. EITHER BY UNLOCKING OR FOR PURCHASE AS EXPANSION PACKS.
Ignore the terrible reviews below!
I have read the negative reviews and can safely say these users are not your average BANG! avid fan. There are HUNDREDS of players online and it works very well (I played nearly ten online games today with absolutely no crashes!) The game has a huge dedicated fan base-- why? Because this game truly is Amazing! It is my favorite game on my iPhone and iPad and one of my favorite things to do when wifi's around. Because it works best with wifi (I remember a few times managing to connect to and complete a full game on 4G, but I definitely prefer the stability of wifi for 99% of my games.) Look at how many positive ratings it has with no reviews. Ignore the lame complainers! Trust me, this game is da bomb!
I really hope there is SOME development someday! Even just to assure the players that there is still interest in developing this game. (That would be magical news!!) I frequent the official site, a fan blog, and a couple Facebook groups and have noticed that despite how loved this game is and its incredible design, users are kind of left in the dark as far as any future care toward this great game....
Fun but Buggy and missing content
Game is fun but there are many bugs and issues I have with the game.
1) Game randomly crashes and closes. If playing online and you disconnect, no way to reconnect to the game, it just counts as a loss.
2) Many of the characters are not available to play in game.
3) In case you forget what your characters ability does, it has to be your turn to be able to view your characters ability.
4) I cant view other characters abilities mid game
5) game does not explain how to use certain characters abilities (you have to press on your characters picture to activate certain abilities but not all)
6) game doesn't warn you when playing a negative card on yourself. I've had multiple occasions where my finger slipped and I played a card on myself instead of another player.
I'm sure there are other issues that I have not come across yet.
Game is great for $1 but I really hope they patch the game and add content.
