Sorry, this is my first post like this and I haven't figured out how to link to the iTunes App page. They also have Treasure Hunter for $2.99, but since I haven't been following that app, I don't know if that's a deal or not.

Thanks for the post! I'll definitely be grabbing these.

These apps have terrible reviews.
It doesn't seem worth buying until they fix all the bugs.

Do not buy Kingdom Builder on iOS. Queen refuses to update it and it crashes constantly on the latest version of iOS and Queen in general is a company I just cannot recommend in general. Their kickstarters have left hundreds of people without their rewards. They have cut off all communication in regards to the campaigns. Extremely unprofessional company.

I know Alhambra had not been updated for a very long time but in the past month or so they have had two updates that claimed bug fixes. I was curious if those updates had corrected the issues mentioned in the previous reviews.

I think the Kingdom Builder app is decent. I only wished they had an undo option at times but other than that it works pretty good. For $0.99 I enjoy it.

Thanks! I downloaded Alhambra, and my first three plays were glitch-free after I figured out the interface.

Does the Android version have similar issues?

FYI

Kingdom Builder on Android (Last Update February 6, 2014) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.brettspielw...

Alhambra on Android (Last Update March 30, 2016) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.brettspielw...

$0.99 in USA market, don't own either so can't answer on stability.

Kingdom Builder has been working fine on several Android devices for me.

I tried out ios Kingdom Builder and enjoyed it. Awkward that there is no manual in the app and no undo button is pretty harsh. For some reason there's a phone interface, but it's TERRIBLE. Tablet only on this one.

I'm finding the zoom really annoying (it keeps bouncing back and forth) and it's caused me to misplace once, but overall, I am actually quite enjoying the app. For $1.39 CDN, it was worth it. Too bad it's gone back up already.

Oh, and the tutorial crashed the game at the end, but my regular games against the AI (4) haven't crashed at all.

And it's actually a fun game in itself, too! I didn't realize that and have been avoiding it, even on the table

I had the same issue with the zoom, but then realized you can either switch to the more normal two finger technique or just do away with the zoom altogether. Since then, I haven't had any issues.

I've had Kingdom Builder on my iPad for 3 years and never had any crash issues. It's a great app to play two player with the iPad on the table between the players. We've played it quite a bit that way while traveling.

I posted in a different Alhambra thread...the app play is definitely good, but the scoring is incorrect (and its incorrectness varies by play).
