Best Game on iPad!
What else can I say? This game has all there is! It has all the features needed for an excellent game, including realistic graphics ( the explorers, also known as "captains",are portrayed by their actual portraits, identical to the portraits found in "Ways of the World", one of the best world history textbooks availible on the Advanced Placement World History curriculum market). This also has an exciting and eliciting goal: discover the world! As you explore the map, you can uncover new territories and continents. This game is a simply amazing way to strengthen geography skills. Along with more scholastic ideals, there are economic and survival elements which make this game, which first appears as simply an educational aid, the most exciting world conquest game available on the iPad. However, there are a few very minor glitches that do not hinder the overall enjoyment of the game: There is one captain the player may hire that is unreliable and will set fire to his ship mid-voyage, and at times the player may be able to find he can sail through the middle of the Americas. However, due to the great value of this game, this is my choice for Best Game on the App Store. Move over, Angry Birds--Colombus, Vasco de Gama, and the other discoverers and globalizers of the modern Western World are ready to take over!
This is a very great app, but you should be able to save your game!
