The great Hive has been disounted for the first time to $0.00 (not sure how much that equals in EUR.... )

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hive/id335501575?uo=4&mt=8&at...

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!

Re: [IOs] HIVE for free!
Yay! Thanks for the headsup. Downloading right now.

I hope it's not as good as Neuroshima Hex - the NH app made me buy the original game and I'm kinda short on money atm .

Excellent deal.

I finally get to try Hive . . .

and get my !@#@ handed to me on the beginner level again and again. I apparently do not have a clue how to play this game. Abstracts are my Achilles heel.

How's Neuroshima Hex im your comparison? I can't play abstracts too well, too. You can make me leave the room with Chess and Go, for example.
But I like and enjoy NH.
I'm just curious to know if it'll pay off to learn Hive .

Neuroshima Hex: Never had a chance to try.

Chess: I am OK. Enjoy it once in a while.

Go: Another Achilles heel. I mean I cannot LEARN this game. Every time I try it is like the other player says "I do this and this and hmm I win 30 to 10." I still do not understand this game.

I can beat the 'hard' AI in 9 moves, with him starting. I found the beginner AI to be the most competitive of the four.

In other words, I am glad this was free. I guess I can hope for an update that would provide a quality opponent.

Enjoy!


It is worth what it costs....

I havent lost to it yet either, and I can see better moves for the AI that he never takes.

So.... i'm still thrilled to have this game, I'll just have to play against another human, which is the point of board games anyhow

Thanks for making me feel so qualified. If I get crushed by the AI, what does that make me? (Please don't answer that.)
