Customer Reviews

The AI players cheat

Good game overall. It's an otherwise solid implementation of QIN but set back by AI that very obviously knows what your hidden pieces are. The computer players make moves that would obviously be strategic mistakes, but happen to be good moves only because of specific pieces in your hand. Other times, they avoid moves which would obviously be in its best interest because they are defending against a piece in your hand. The AI is obviously cheating. Other than that, this is a good game, and well produced. But the developers skimped on AI logic and took the easy route.

Lovely game

Great artwork and a great board game all together. This is without doubt one of the best board games on the App Store. It needs more maps two is not enough.

Additional maps as in app purchases would be great. And a local multiplayer game where iPhone is used as a tile display would be a great addition.

Okay

Two big problems keep this from being a five-star game. Firstly, the AI obviously cheats; secondly, the play area is immediately obscured after the final piece is played, thereby preventing you from studying the board of a finished game.
