It’s Tropico and it’s on my IPad

Can’t agree with the early negative comments here saying it’s clunky etc. I’ve had a few goes with it now and think it’s great. Feral have done well adapting it for the iPad. Took me a while to get used to the panning and zooming around the map but you can lower the sensitivity of zooming and rotating etc in the settings to suit. Also, a nice little touch is that if you move/pinch the camera using the top half of the screen, it moves quicker than if you use the bottom half. The negative reviewers clearly haven’t found this out yet. As for placement of buildings, there’s no problem there either. Easy to drag the building around by holding your finger down on the building you wish to move. With handy rotate buttons around the building. Another great touch here is that you can still zoom in and out with ease while you position the building. The graphics are similar to Tropico 5 on the PS4 and that in itself is remarkable although I hear the game is actually based on Tropico 3. Very enjoyable - all the humour is there and also all the depth. 5 out of 5 from me.

Tropico is one of my all time favourite games. I was a little unsure how the port to an iPad would work. However, it is utterly brilliant. The developers have done an amazing job.

The controls take a little getting used to, but, as others have noted, this is only to be expected given the touch screen. That said, they soon become intuitive. The graphics are stunning. This is as beautiful as one could hope for. More to the point, it retains all the in-depth and complex game play elements from the desktop games. This is not a simple game. But it is endlessly rewarding to play as you discover new elements. There is so much to it. And the wonderful Latin soundtrack is there along with heaps of humour and fun. The only downside is the battery drain, but this is to be expected given the processing power needed to do so many things.

Well done and many thanks to the development team. I hoped that one day Tropico would come to the iPad. I’m not disappointed.

Quality iPad version of Tropico

Superb game tropico on iPad graphics are getting towards that of consoles and pcs and it’s basically a full game of tropico if they bring out lots of add on packs with scenarios and stuff that would make it even better I give 5 star despite a couple of issues which was I’ve had a couple of crashes on iPad Pro if that can be fixed it would make it nearly perfect and sometimes when writing comes up giving hints it disappears too quick to read but this game is quality there’s no doubt tropico on ipad
