What's New in Version 1.2.4
- Fixed an achievement bug.
Fun for those who like a challenge
I first played this as the physical board game when I was in college, and was delighted to see that it had made its way onto the app store now. Yes, this game is challenging...and that's what makes it addictively fun! It seems too many people these days expect games that are virtually impossible to lose. Where's the fun in that? While it can be frustrating at times, a good game like this pushes you to flex your planning and strategy muscles to solve a sometimes impossible-seeming puzzle.
The graphics are wonderful, and the music/sound effects tastefully done for the most part. It's a tad cramped on my iPad 2 screen, but not horribly so even on the iPhone version. I had some issues getting the app to initialize right after I downloaded it, but I rebooted my iPad and haven't had any issues since. Unfortunately trying to project it onto my TV via AirPlay for group play hasn't worked and causes the app to crash. However, this may just be an issue with my older iPad not having enough RAM/processing power.
All in, a great port of a great game for iOS. I look forward to trying the expansion packs in the future.
Great implementation of the Board Game
I have just the basic addition, so I can’t comment on the extensions. I played the physical game once then bought this game. I read the rules, and the guide that comes up while you play makes it really easy to learn. (When you start the game you chose your team, difficulty and “Info Mode” for the person who forgot how to turn this off) You have to plan your moves ahead, to the extent that you can, and realize just about every country just infected will be in again about 5 turns after an epidemic., I find keeping the infection under control usually works best, even if it means racing around the board to do so, and putting off turning cards until the end.
Fun but buggy
Very slick UI and great gameplay. It is challenging but do-able. This would have been 5 stars but occasionally I'll lose my UI. By this, I mean that I will lose (and be unable to return) my player panel (thus I cannot see who has what cards). At one point, the game remained responsive with the exception of being able to move my characters. Fix the bugs guys and I'll revise to 5 stars.
Even with the bugs, it's worth the buy. Keep in mind, the game is tough to win but that's part of the fun.
