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.
Get real boardgame
No LOCAL NETWORK/bluetooth play, the game forces Game Center which is utter failure, unreliable, slow. The game does not allow you to view your city or opponent city (as you would in real boardgame session) while waiting for opponent turn. Imagine playing chess where ipad hides board while you wait for opponent? Has author ever played Suburbia boardgame with real people?
Game Center loses sync and requires constant manual resyncing.
Tiles are not readable on older non-retina devices.
Let other developers pick up good titles like Suburbia, dont kill it with crummy releases like this one.
The game design is great. Campaign and single player games are both nice options. The calculation of population from extra cash at the end of the game was a little confusing (more complete directions would help for those who haven't played the real game), but overall it's great!
