Ratings and Reviews
Fun Game But It Gets "Stuck"
I really enjoy playing this game but I have 2 big issues with it. As some other reviewers have said, I can't play more than one game at a time because at the end of the game the entire thing freezes. Neither tapping or shaking will bring up a new map. Tapping the back button does no good either. I have to close out the app completely and open again to play a new game.
The second limitation, again as other reviewers have said, is the fact that bonus armies all get stuck in the back rather than being placed in border countries. They should either allow manual placement or add a fortification round that allows movement of armies from one country to another.
I like the game otherwise but am reluctant to purchase the full version.
Very good app. Very much like risk except for:
-The # of dice you roll depends on how many armies you are attacking or defending with.
-New troops come after your turn instead of the round(explained later).
-After winning an attack, all but one of your armies moves to the new country. I like this a little better.
-Maps are randomized.
-Even though you may win an attack, troops an be deducted from your side.
I favor this too.
The troop placement bugs me a little. It places the troops randomly through your countries, but tends to fill up the innermost areas, instead of the front lines where they are needed (this can be fixed by buying the full ver.). Since there are no specific regions(Australia, Asia, etc.) troops are given by the number of areas in your largest cluster, making separated empires unuseful.
-Choose your color.
-Great replay value.
-Up to 5 human/AI players.
-Great content for a lite version.
-No local/online play.
-Must have 5 players in SP mode.
I think some cons can be fixed by buying the full version. A great by anyhow.
Game Cheats. Makes it undesirable to upgrade.
First, when you are in a tight situation, the computer decides that now your rolls are "just" barely going to lose. All of a sudden it chooses bad match ups ( it's 2 men vs. opponents 3 men) because it knows it's going to win. Otherwise, it NEVER chooses match ups where it has less men??!? When we chose to make the game a higher difficulty, it means make the AI/computer strategies more difficult, it does not mean manipulate the "random" dice rolls. But that's what this game does. It also cheats by putting your fortifications at the BACK??!?! Of your territory??!? Allowing opponents to gather up more of your territory. I could've upgraded this game 3 years ago, but I refuse because of the shady "random" dice rolls generator. It might even be considered illegal in gaming States.
