Whilst the AI is pretty rubbish on this game, I love the app as it taught me the moves of the game (which I had already bought in physical form but had not got my head around).

It turned out to be a very simple and easy to remember move set, after all! Add to this, that it is a great game to play when you have a couple of minutes to spare on a train/bus journey.

Definitely worth it, even when at its normal price.

I picked it up to see how it plays - the Mosquito is optional, P2P, one and two player seem to be supported, however on my iPad I encountered a crash once when selecting the tile style. Anyway worth a try, I think....

Enjoy!

The game is great to teach people the rules to the actual game.

My wife put it on her IPAD and I spotted her playing it yesterday... my next move is to leave the actual game out where she can see it and suggest a game!

Thanks for the info!

You may want to download Hanto. It's a Hive clone that looks and sounds better than Hive for the iOS. I feel bad for the creator that they have made the game permanently free due to Hive's (admittedly baseless) legal threats.

They were. Then they changed the movement and added some kamikaize units. Then the creator gave up and changed it back to the original.

But Hive never had any legs to stand on by threatening them that it had to be changed. If ideas could be copyrighted then there wouldn't be many clones of risk.

Is Hive gone from the marketplace? I bought it on my iPod ages ago and was going to put it on my iPad but I can't find it anywhere in the marketplace.

It was discontinued and removed from the store some time ago.

You may be able to get it on your iPad by syncing a copy from your iTunes.

Bah, this resurrected thread briefly got my hopes up. Anyone know what happened to Hive? Some kind of licensing issue?

Should also be available from your purchase history in iTunes or on the iPad.

That is what is weird. It is not listed anywhere in my purchase history on the iPad. Searching within the purchase history for Hive pulls up nothing either. I'm plugging in the iPod now and seeing if I can get it to sync the files from the iPod to my computer and then computer to iPad.


edit: No such luck. I even had it transfer purchased apps from my iPod (that still has Hive installed) to my PC and it won't sync it to my iPad.

Hey dudes; this is probably old news by now, but the game is up for free for a while.

basically, lotusland studios exploded into lawyers and arguing. this explains the long hiatus. Now the game is back, with online turn based play.

SIGH. which is broken right now, I set up Game Center wrong somehow and now I am full of fail. Resubmitting tonight.

Re: [IOS] HIVE for free!
It says the item is not available in the U.S. I followed the link directly from the one in the first post here.

edit: I got the same result a second time, but now I am downloading it via this link (that is working for me): http://itunes.com/apps/Hive
