What's New in Version 2.1
- Fixed a problem were icons would not be displayed properly.
- Several other small bugfixes.
We'd be very pleased about positive ratings, in case you like this app!
Overall a great game. Well implemented, no performance issues or crashes. Some suggestions to get it to 5 stars:
* Option for totally random game. Random number of players, random position, random start player, random assignment of computer players, etc. Would make it easier to set up a quick game with more variation between games.
* More computer players with different styles and preferred strategies, especially at the harder level.
* Get rid of (or ability to suppress) pop up full screen graphics first time each role is selected in a game. They don't seem to add anything, just adds an extra click.
* Don't force waiting for your turn for things where it doesn't matter (such as placing colonists). Would be important with real players so you don't give away what you're going to do but not so much with computer players that could be programmed to not take early selections into account (or programmed to take into account to add a level of complexity, i.e. do you give away what you plan to do to try to influence their choice).
* Look into online multiplayer, similar to what Catan has implemented
I like it a lot!
I had played the board version several years ago, and enjoyed it, so I bought this version, which works pretty well. I am playing it on my iPad version 1 and my iPad Mini, and it works flawlessly on both.
It was difficult and a little frustrating re-learning the iPad version, and I had to go through the tutorial and instructions a couple of times. Something that makes it tricky, is that the buildings are kind of small (icons), and not memorizing what they are makes the player have to keep looking to see what you have bought.
All of that said, once you learn the game, it is very addicting! I would definitely recommend this game app.
Great game! Needs two options
This is an excellent implementation of Puerto Rico.
The only thing keeping it from 5 stars for me is the inability to play with "alternate" rules. The alternate rules i'd like to see are switching the cost of the factory and university, so the factory would cost 8 and the university 7, and changing the amount of starting money for players with corn to one less doubloon.
I put alternate in quotes because the maker of the game, Andreas Seyfarth, has stated that he recommends the change to the factory and university costs for balance issues. As for the starting doubloons it has been found in tournament play that players starting with corn are statistically much more likely to win. Changing the starting doubloons fixes that.
Another feature I'd love to see is online play but even without those features it is still an extremely well done implementation of a great game.
