What's New in Version 3.2
Users can now use Facebook integration to sign on and to compete with friends in achievements and wins!
Fixed a few issues with GameCenter authentication and offline play.
Great if you only want to play against the bots; lousy otherwise
If, however, you wish to play against a friend, you may be out of luck. As other reviewers have noted, the async option (through Game Center and the app's native game network) barely functions. It is prone to locking up, long delays, and crashing the app. In addition, the app has lost games. To whit: I started a game with a friend; we each took a few turns. And now, despite a badge on the app icon and a notification in Game Center assuring me that I have a game, the menu shows no current games and therefore cannot load the game. I'd avoid purchasing this app until the issues are resolved by the developers...
well I'd say its a solid implementation of a great game - but the gourmet gaming system needs a little bit of work
Game Center integration is bad - ally invites never make it to my friends and when you try to get back to one of your asynchronous games and god forbid you lose your connection it's just white screen of death until you reset your phone ...
plssss fix that??
Needs more in game options
Well at least more more option. In order to start a new match, you actually have leave the app and double press the home button and 'x' it out in the active app menu...or you can play your current game out to the end. Unbelievable that there is not an in match menu (especially for single player mode). Add the universally available feature and I will raise my rating.
