Ratings and Reviews
Not ready for release
As a HUGE fan of the boardgame, I'm very disappointed in this app. No AI, no online multiplayer, no tutorial for new players, no WiFi multiplayer.
This app is limited to 2 pass-and-play humans sitting next to each other, and it doesn't even have a very friendly interface for that limited market. If I'm getting together with a buddy to play Cyclades, there's NO WAY I'd use this app over the tabletop boardgame.
This app is going to need a lot of improvement to pull itself out of the gutter. It can be done, but my recommendation to others would be to wait and see. It's not ready now.
Can't say how disappointed I was...
Absolutely awful sophomoric attempt at iOSing a legit board game. If you like Cyclades the board game then this will be pure torture for you. Maybe in 2 years if a completely different set of developers spent an hour a two per month rewriting this then their version would still be infinitely better. I can only imagine a 12 year old developed this game and then went to bed happy believing they had put something good out into the world.
Great Game, Very Bad App
I love the board game so as soon as I saw the app I got it. I made the mistake of not reading the reviews first. This app is worthless.
No AI means that you only can play with other people. If I am going to play this game with other people I will play the board game itself. I don't see anyone choosing to play this app over the actual board game. That being said there is no reason what so ever anyone should get this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
