Improvements should be made
Bang! is a great game, and I disagree with some of the other reviews that say this isn't a mobile-friendly game. I play on my iPhone all the time, and I never have a problem knowing which card is which. All it takes is a little practice.
It is a little frustrating that you can't play online using a cellular data network (at least not with AT&T's). You need to be connected to WiFi or you will lose connection almost immediately after starting an online match. This takes away some of the fun because it limits where you can play.
The character emoticons definitely need to go. If you told someone which character you were during a regular card game, it would be considered table talk (even if you weren't telling the truth), but somehow it's ok if you're online? Get rid of that silly nonsense, please.
Even when connected to WiFi, about 1 out of 4 online matches crashes. Incredibly frustrating, especially when you are winning.
Overall a great game. Just needs some technical upgrades and a little tweaking.
Bang is mostly true to card game
First glance at this update:
I still can't see the achievements. I get a spinning "Loading" icon. Anyone know how I can get past this? I have not yet heard back from support.
I like adding new characters. Please keep up this trend. There are so many to pick from. It would be nice to see all of the characters added eventually.
It would also be nice to see more players at a time... I know that would change the interface, but with the expansion and modified rules, you can play with more then 5. I like playing up to 8 with my friends using the real cards... Please allow more then 5 some day.
I still stand by my past review that this is a great game (port to iOS). I just wish I could access some of the menu material (achievements), and play with more opponents (AI as well as Human).
Great game, needs a few fixes
Overall great game. AI is impressive. Very fun.
1. Remove emoticons.
2. Allow opt out of tutorial early. If you accidentally start the tutorial, it takes a while to get back to the main screen.
3. Allow me to listen to my own music while I play. This ap kills all sound upon startup.
4. To end a turn, slide up instead of down. If I have notifications, they block the ability to slide down.
Others: unlocking characters, less online crashing, unable to read top players' table cards (if they have several,) and what the heck is peeking mode?
