Really enjoyed this.
This game is a classic, and the iOS version is definitely enjoyable to play. Thank you for bringing this to iOS.
Loses Saved Turns
The game is a good copy of the original, but the app loses my most recent turns after I save and exit. Today I played to turn 162, then saved and exited. When I returned, it started me back at turn 148! This despite the fact that the game restart option said I was at turn 162. When this happens, I usually just delete the game and wait until I think I might have time to play another game all the way through without needing to save and exit. This ruins an otherwise fine game.
Close to a Classic
EDME has rough edges and looks like a port of a Windows DOS game to iOS. However, the game logic is sound. Just clean up the interface and this gets 5 stars in a genre that is ripe for better games ... to bring back the thrill of Strategic Conquest on the Mac.
