Customer Reviews

Neat game, atrocious UI

The UI designers can't have actually played the game. SO many really obvious annoyances. Such as vital controls being transparent and overload ON TOP of the map you are also trying to interact with. And the endless dialog you have to tap-tap-tap through (no Skip) EVERY time you retry a mission.

Move the bottom controls to an opaque bar outside the map, add a Skip for the dialog sequences, and get rid of the giant words that hide he whole map for several seconds every single turn, and this already fun game would be vastly better.

GC achievements, thank you!

GC makes games a lot more replayable, thank you for updating it with them!

Desktop and IOS

I recently bought this on my ipad. Does this mean I don't have to download it again on Steam?
