What's New in Version 2.4
- Bugfixes and optimizations
- We've re-enabled several missing (safety) popups (thanks for your feedback!)
We'd be very pleased about positive ratings, in case you like this app!
Multiplayer doesn't work, no expansion
This is the original, not the expansion, so it's missing a bunch of cards, and it's less balanced. The Guild Hall is massively overpowered here, the prefecture costs 3, the Gold Mine is more powerful, but without the Gold Smith, it's much harder to take a prospector strategy. In fact, you seem to need to take a producer oriented strategy due to the Guild Hall being so powerful. It even makes the monuments barely viable because building an Indigo Plant with the Guild hall is worth the same as a statue. Also the multiplayer is broken, which is why I installed it. The game itself is done pretty well, but the screen is small enough that you can only look at a portion at a time, so I wind up playing my own strategy much more, whereas I play mostly based on my opponents in person.
Multiplayer has some problems
This is a great game and well implemented in a digital form. It's very stable and smooth. Playing multiplayer needs to be more able to recover from drops in wifi. Would love to have a "local network" version that lets me hook up multiple devices without the Internet or Game Center. As is, if I have a phone and iPad with the same Game Center account, I can't play with both in one game.
App is very well done. Runs smoothly. Fun game. gets a little repetitive, so I play it once in a while, usually only a game at a time, maybe two. Rules could've been a little clearer at the beginning, esp with regard to how/what determines the (changing) selling values of commodities. Seems random, and there's no way of knowing until after you choose the trade option. Anyways, still a good game. Well made.
