For those who don't know...

I read through the comments and it seems like nobody knows that this is originally a PC game from back in 2001. It had a huge cult following and was regarded as one of the best strategy games around. I've been playing it since I was a kid when it came out and I was always obsessed. I spent DAYS playing it nonstop and I one day I decided to search for it here to see what happens and...ITS HERE. So that's cool. Graphics look much better here than on PC. It doesn't seem to be missing Much from PC version gameplay wise. Missing some game modes which understand but that's not why I'm giving it 4 stars. I'm a little disappointed in how hard it is to navigate through the game. I should say how harder it is than PC. I shouldn't have expected it be as easy but to be honest it does make the game boring for me sometimes. Gotta go get it on my PC for sure

Awesome Graphics Update... Still some gameplay issues

The most recent update to the Settlers is visually stunning. The game is crisp, and just fun to watch. Unfortunately, there are quite a few bugs now in the user interface and it seems to want to crash fairly often. Make sure to save often, as the "continue" feature doesn't seem to be working properly, and look out as you move up in the Dark Tribe missions, the "slider" to get to missions 6 and beyond seems to not be working anymore (a reboot seemed to fix this problem)... Hopefully these issues will be fixed shortly and then this goes right back up to 5 stars...

Watch out! This update seems to CHEW THROUGH my battery. I'm still trying to figure out how to fix that problem, but even after "closing" the app, after playing Settlers my batter gets drained faster than you can imagine.

Free Play is still a huge opportunity for the Settlers!

Pleasantly Surprised

I must admit, I was sort of skeptical at first. I downloaded the demo but didn't really care for it. It seemed overwhelming and not what I was looking for: a real-time strategy game in the same vein as Age of Empires. Reluctantly I bought the full version and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This game has a lot of heart and a lot of depth. The resource management can get a bit tedious, but the graphics are really good and the gameplay, in my opinion, is solid. I wish they had a skirmish/free-play mode where you could just battle one of the other colonies, like Command & Conquer and Age of Empires, but perhaps maybe a future update or DLC. If you're looking for a good real-time strategy that also emphasizes resource management then this is the game for you! It ranks up there with Age of Empires as one of my top real-time strategy games of all time on any platform.
