Game was great before. New UI update wrecks it.

Should still be in beta testing

I love Star Realms, but this update should not have been released. Since installing the latest update, the game freezes up mid-turn all the time. I'm forced to quit, restart, and sit through a reenactment of my actions to the point the game froze. I'm running on an iPad Pro (9.7"), so it's not my hardware. I also haven't gotten credit for any of my wins since the update, which is getting old

I test software for a living, and this version of the app should still be in the hands of their testers. Fix this stuff, and I'll update my review to 5 stars. Until then, 2 stars is all you get.

Sadly, the new version RUINS the game

Just my two cents here, but thought I'd let you know that I and my partner are both deleting your game from our iPads. I've been a faithful user almost since the beginning and purchased each expansion as soon as it released, but won't be purchasing Colony Wars unless you let the interface revert.


In "dumbing down" the Easy AI, you apparently also significantly dumbed down the Hard version. It's embarrassingly easy to beat it now, and it often doesn't take obvious moves (such as using its combat to remove bases!).

The new interface is MUCH slower and less responsive. We didn't need all the pretty eye candy, we bought the game for the excellent game play, and that's now gone. I often find myself stabbing fruitlessly at cards or trying to move them and either they won't select or snap back to the play line.

Games now take much longer while we wait for animations that we don't need and didn't want. The play screen is cluttered and harder for me to use, and I say that after perhaps 50 games on it, so it is not an initial impression but you'll get used to it kind of thing. If you have to "get used" to a new interface, it is not better. Microsoft learned that with Win8, you could have taken a lesson from them.

The multiple online games at once option is gone, and honestly, some of us LIKED the 48-hour option to fit between other things we were doing. An option to do, say, 10-minute or 15-minute games would have been nice to add. Real time is fine, but not when that's the only option and you can't use it to play multiple games at once.

I liked the "your new level is your floor" rule, but it seems you could have added that without ruining the app.

Bring back the old app, perhaps as a Classic version with all of our prior purchases restored, and I will re-download that and play it happily forever. If you check the App Store ratings, you will see I am far from the only one who has this opinion.

If it wasn't broke, why did you feel you had to "fix" it?
