Reiner Knizia's Keltis Oracle
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
REVIEW: The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW): "Keltis Oracle is a great, light strategic board game for iPad, iPhone".
Keltis Oracle is the visually appealing sequel to the famous Keltis board game (known in the US as Lost Cities)! Between 1 and 4 players on the same iPad can play this exciting new board game from one of the world's leading board game developers, Dr. Reiner Knizia.
In Keltis Oracle, you guide your pieces into a spiral of stones,
collecting rewards on the way, such as wishing stones and
mirrors. Movement is allowed only by creating sequences of specific coloured cards. The stones in the spiral have special effects which enhance the strategical thinking required even further.
Now available as a universal app - run it on both your iPhone and your iPad!
* Tap on the icons in the corners to cycle between human and computer players.
* Tap the middle stone to bring up a menu where you can check the rules during a game.

Reiner does it again
I'm not a big review writer, but I am a huge fan of Reiner Kinizia's work! Samurai started me as a fan, then I discovered Kingdoms, possibly my favorite, followed by Labyrinth, Through the Desert, and finally Keltis Oracle! Honestly, this one took the longest to learn, but became a favorite quickly. There really is nothing like it, if you like to think! It has a nice Celtic feel, and really immerses you in a game which may or may not have been played long ago! Thanks again Reiner!
Presentation Lacks Polish
fun game, good game mechanics but UI needs polish. colors are hard to distinguish so have to play portrait mode with Me and AI down at the bottom of the device so i can see the tablets (colors/dots) better. do that though and the AI's wishing stone "scorecard" is alone at the top so it looks weird. again, lacks polish. this game would get 5 stars if it simply looked better. i mean, go compare it with Keltis HD and you'll see what i mean...apples and oranges....sigh, i hope soon Tribeflame will give this game a more professional look as it's fun to play!
Colors cannot be deciphered by red/green colorblind individuals
The developers choice of colors and symbols made it impossible for my husband to play this game. He is red/green color deficient, which means he can see more saturated colors or rely upon other visual cues. From the game preview, it was not clear that these color distinctions were essential for game play. We are big fans of the Lost Cities board game and were looking forward to trying this out too. Please keep in mind that 1 in 12 people or about 8% of American men have some form of color blindness when developing games! I bought this to play with him - a waste of money it seems.
