What's New in Version 1.3
Fixed a bug under iOS 7 which prevents the virtual keyboard to show up. This caused problems in the tutorial as well as in the multiplayer chat.
Believe the reviews about the tutorial
It might be worth $5 just to see how poorly a major game company can make a tutorial. Even having read earlier reviews complaining about the unreadable text, I didn't even see the writing at first. I never dreamed someone would actually sell a program, for money, that used black text on the background of the black-ish board. (It's sorta like when you're doing a PowerPoint and you're playing with the colors and you forget to change the background. And then you look at it and think, "oops," and you fix it. Except Ravensburger didn't look at it.) Once I did see the inane introductory text (something sarcastic about "changing sides" and working for Scotland Yard -- it appears I prompted that by an inadvertent screen tap, but I haven't been able to repeat it), I still couldn't detect any way to advance. If you've never played this game before, this is not the place to start. Fortunately, I have, and the game play itself is fine. I haven't played enough to rate the AI, and haven't tried online play. But the tutorial. Oh my. Out of the more than two dozen boardgame ports and numerous other games I've downloaded, this is the worst. Hands down.
LOTS OF FUN ... When it works.
I got this game as a gift from my out-of-state family so that four of us could play together long distance. As such, we utilize the chat function frequently. Or do we? Turns out only two of us at a time can talk to each other. When one person loses the chat connection, another magically gains it. All in all, not a huge deal, but it would be nice if it had some consistency -- ideally we could all talk at once. Seems pretty obvious, but the function just doesn't seem to exist.
The big problem is that one or more of us is constantly getting booted out of the game. This wasn't always an issue, but for the past several hours it's been impossible to finish a round. We finally just gave up. It's always at least one person who loses connection or the game freezes/crashes. We all have optimal internet connections (no issues with quality apps) and our software is all up to date.
Fix it, and we'll come back. When it works, it's a blast! It just never works.
Love This Game!
I don't share the opinion of some of the negative reviews about difficulty seeing the board...I can see just fine and find the colors appealing. This game supports text AND audio chat...very nice!...just like sitting at a table with family and friends. This renditition is true to the original board game. Very well done!
For a fantastic family COOPERATIVE board game by Ravensburger, check out WHOOWASIT; it's one of the best board games I've ever played, and it's fun and challenging for the whole family...kids AND adults. Another great cooperative board game is GHOST STORIES.
