Ratings and Reviews
Love the game. App needs some work.
So a couple of things that need to be addressed. The ‘on deck’ card while you play is cut off where the threatened hits are so I can’t tell if my on deck card will be more useful than the cards in my hand. A way to make the cards bigger when you touch them or zoom in would be appreciated. Also, an option to turn off the annoying ‘single’ ‘single’ ‘double’ ‘out’ vocals would be nice.
Overall not bad. Some minor technicalities need to be addressed to take this already great board game to the next level as an app.
There is a zoom action which you can invoke by leaving a finger on top of a card for a second or two. It works on any stack of cards in the game. This is covered in the tutorial.This will allow you to inspect the On Deck card in teh event that you forget about the details of that card.
Enjoying but question AI
I am enjoying this but I am getting frustrated quickly. I seriously question the AI ability to get clutch wins and saves every game. I have played this about 15 times now and am getting my ars handed to me on a regular basis. Many if not most of my losses have come to just amazing come from behind victories, amazing defensive plays or visitor saves. I’m not saying its rigged but I am keeping an eye on it. I want to punch that cyborg coach right in his electronic eye. Can’t recommend this game but can’t say don’t get it either. That probably doesn’t help anyone.
I love this game!
Like others have mentioned, the user interface needs work. The card scrolling/selection is clunky, and the layout itself could use some care to avoid stretched out graphics. I also think there is a bug with base runner advancement on some cards that have instant effects, as I've seen some slow runners go from second all the way home on what should have been a single (but this rarely happens, so must be a specific edge case of some sort).
