Fun but with some annoyances
The game is fun, however I have some issues with the app. First, I paid for the ad free version but there are still ads. Second, it constantly pesters you to use special abilities (and forces you to when it first introduces each one) but you can't see your own pieces or most of the board when picking abilities so you have to strategize ahead of time. Lastly, when you go to "buy" abilities with the blocks you've earned, there is an option to get a free one. But if you tap that option, it clocks and eventually tells you to check your internet connection. Pick one of the abilities that costs blocks, though, and it magically works. Why tease with the free option?
Fun but slow
Blokus is a fun game but it's so slow! On solo play, it takes so long for the other 3 AI players that I lose interest.
The app restarts every time you open it so you have to start from the main menu every time. So not only do you have to wait for the app to restart but you have to navigate through two or three menus to get back to your game. Frustrating when you just want a quick play somewhere.
It would be great if you could be taken directly back to your game when you open the app.
5 stars if the game weren't so heavy and slow. Game play is fun when it's finally your turn....
C'mon, Mattel. Try not to broadcast that you don't have a clue. Here is a brilliant board game that could easily play well on a device--especially an iPad. But no. There are so many problems:
1) Interface is clunky. It's hard to select pieces. Hard to know what you have in-hand. Clumsy to maneuver.
2) Stoopid "characters". You don't need to cute-ify the game, Mattel. It's a serious strategy game loved most by passionate, serious players. Do you not even know your target market?
3) AI is weak. The most telling thing about the AI is the "hard" level solo game. The developers' idea of making it "hard" is for all three AI players to gang up on you.
4) Menus are ridiculous and self-serving. Far too much promotion of other apps, promotion of useless power-ups, and useless menu pages to click thru. The fact that you can't immediately return to a game in progress without navigating the menus is ridiculous.
5) Lack of basic play-and-pass. Really??
Back to the drawing board. But before you do, go play Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride for mobile.
