finally on iPad!
Wouldn't you like to be a cowboy? Especially a rich and famous one? In Hacienda you can become an estanciero - an Argentinian animal breeder and landowner. You will compete against other players in order to become the most respected farmer and landowner in the region. You can succeed by breeding animals, bringing their livestock to markets, and claiming and controlling new land.
Hacienda will entertain both beginners and experienced players. It is a strategic family board game, first created by one of the most famous game designers - Wolfgang Kramer and now brought to iPad by us.
You can play Hacienda by yourself (while playing against the computer) or with your friends (sharing one iPad).
An excellent tutorial will easily introduce all rules and teach you how to play.
The game also has a version designed for convenience of the left-handed players.
The offered features:
★ a tutorial which teaches game rules and basic strategies
★ a user interface that truly resembles a physical board game and at the same time exploits the advantages of iPad
★ a dedicated UI version for the left-handed players
★ an original game art
★ two different maps (for novices and experts)
★ three difficulty levels of the computer player
★ a local multi-player mode (pass-and-play)

Very slow loading game
Using ipad 3. When I first purchased the app I thought it was freezing up each time I selected to play the game or tutorial. The app is just extremely slow at loading... It takes anywhere from 2-3 minutes for it to load the game. I would rate the game higher but the long loading time is an issue. Besides that the game runs very smoothly and is very easy to use. Great implementation of the board game.
iPad 4 it locks up every time I try to play it. Worthless piece of junk like most games anymore. Everybody and their brother trying to make it big in the gaming industry, but idiots abound. Especially in this piece of garbage.
