Excellent adaptation for iPad

This has become one of, if not my favorite games on iPad. If you are into simulation city builders this is a must own. The graphics are console quality and the touch controls are spot on. It is a rarity when a PC game comes to iOS and you are not hindered by touch controls. If anything, I feel they enhance this game. The game play is fun and there is a lot of replay value here.

I have read a lot about crashing and losing saved game data but I have not experienced any of this. I am playing on a brand new iPad Pro 12.9” with the A12x chip so this may have something to do with it. Also, recent updates are aimed at these issues.

The only issue I see is battery drain. If I am playing for longer than 30 minutes I will usually have to plug my iPad into power but this is to be expected with such a graphics intense game. I am pretty surprised they were able to pull this off at all (although I shouldn’t be after seeing what Feral Interactive has done with Tomb Raider on Mac). Great job bringing excellent games to Mac and iOS. Can’t wait to see what is next!

Fantastic port! Great additions

Feral have brought Trópico mobile! This is the classic game we all love but Feral have made some fantastic additions to ease gameplay and make the overall game more intuitive. These additions relate to things like making roads, adding upgrades to buildings, overall construction, overall demolishing and keeping the flow of your island nice and fine-tuned! The game has the same menus but the UI has been updated for ease of use on the iPad, while also allowing builders quick access to everything they need to keep their island growing! The addition of Architect Mode is amazing, and really makes building on the iPad easy and fun. The graphics have kept the older fun Haemimont style but Feral have added depth and saturation to the beautiful colors. This is exactly how you port an older game into the technology of 2018! Thank you, I’ve never clicked “BUY” faster 😁

iPad (Pro)’s first good city-builder title!

This has quickly become my favorite game on my iPad Pro, and it makes what-should-have-already-been-obvious obvious in how to make the iPad a computer gaming device. I’ve really been hoping for a city builder in the vein of SimCity without a handicapped interface, without in-app purchases, without free-to-wait timers…and they really did it. This really is the actual experience that we grew up with, but on today’s platform.

EA really ought to notice…but they won’t. They’re too busy turning our childhood franchises into casino machines. If this is a harbinger of things to come from Feral, I can’t wait to see what’s next! I’d personally have paid twice as much for such a good game.
