Love the board game, app needs work
Especially in the multiplayer department!! Game plays oddly when playing against people online, and it doesn't always update when it is your turn. Additionally, I had to replay my turn frequently before it updated and switched turns to other person. I'd play my turn, and an hour later, I'd have to play the same turn. Frustrating whence game progresses so slowly because of that. It would take weeks to complete a game multiplayer.
Interesting single player campaign, however, so I appreciate the option of playing alone.
Much more enjoyable than the table top version, much faster without keeping track of everyone's point changes. Love the fun one player campaign and that there are npcs that can be added to multiplayer pass n play.
Great game, just needs a few enhancements to be awesome!
I LOVE Suburbia and I do like this app, but I feel it needs a few additions to really shine.
First, it needs to have a way to reset the view when you zoom in. I have had to stop multiple games when I accidentally zoomed in too far and couldn't reset the view.
Next, it needs to have the Inc expansion added and the 5 Star as well. I love playing those with the real game and I miss them with the app.
Third, the AI players are too easy to beat. I haven't lost a game yet.
Can't wait for the next round of updates!
