What's New in Version 1.2
- The update refreshes the icon and screenshots and corrects some bugs found on iOS 4
needs an update/sequel
v1.2: Took a year but they came through! Can't wait for Orions 2! I still play this 3 years after I downloaded it. Can't say that about many other apps. Thanks for coming through Chillingo. :)
bug report: after you press the button to finish your turn the top player bar flickers. annoying!
v:1.1:I play this game far and away more than any other on my ipod since I got this back in 2008.
Why the 1 star? Because the support for it has been terrible, and they have done nothing in 2 years to correct the copius bugs in the game. Random crashing, Flaming Arrow has some terrible math in it if you play against the computer, it'll usually hit you for 10+ every time, even when you're only 1 mana under the computer's for example.
There are tons of expansions out for this too, they are sitting on a gold mine and doing NOTHING to claim it.
Guess we'll just wait for WOTC or someone else to make a M:TG ipod game or clone thereof. It'll happen Chillingo, unless you beat em to it.
PS... 5 star review if you update this app. Won't wait forever though, neither will the thousands of others who supported this.
Card-based 4x game
Think: Master of Magic meets Magic the Gathering meets Master of Orion (ok, all these games are old-skool, but that's the way I roll)
This is definitely a solid strategy game, with great replayability. The only thing I've found so far is that it's a bit confusing how much gems (and of what type) you have at any given time. Also, the AI could use some work. However, for those of you who've played any of the games I mentioned or anything similar, this is great great stuff, and definitely worth the price.
Update: the latest update made the game unplayable (can't place any blue crystals)... hope they fix this, it was a great timesink.
Majorly Broken with New Update
This use to be a favorite app, but the new "update" has broken the game (at least on Iphone 4). I've removed the 5 stars and lowered it to 3. This was one game that has never left my iPhone since my original iPhone 3G, but now it may finally get the boot...
Issue 1: The blue crystal mine isn't always buildable from start anymore. In fact, I finally was only able to build it in one of my games by having the game crash, and then reopening the game.
Issue 2: The game crashes often, especially when using the quick change between cities.
Issue 3: Some of the cards have their abilities messed up. Specifically, cards which use to take one or two elements and convert into another elemental type don't always convert the right type to the right type.
