"4/5: Fun … strategy game with bags of historical flavour. Works brilliantly when played asynchronously against other people." - Gamezebo

Struck at tutorial
The app stops responding a few step into the tutorial on my iPhone 4S.
A Brief History of the World
A very good game, AI extremely competitive, easy to learn, commands simple to use, a great value, you will play this constantly!
Game freezes and malfunctions constantly
I'm still learning so I refer to help from time to time. But half the time it tells me I should end my turn even when I haven't played any of my armies! And it's frozen. I can't actually end my turn or make any other play. It is a fun game for the three minutes it actually works.
I want a refund!
