This isn't a review, just a couple of notes about the iOS version. It plays great, fun little animations, and the AI is pretty good. There is no online multiplayer, which is disappointing, especially after Playdek's fantastic versions of Ascension, Nightfall, Summoner Wars, and Food Fight. Online play could very well come in an update, however.

Plays fast, and is mostly up to the amazing quality Playdek is known for. Totally worth the 99 cents.

One thing I will note, and it only happened once: I rolled a 6 and 4, and chose this option. It moved my marker on the 6 and 4 track, but said on the side of the screen that my marker was on 6 and 5. I've e-mailed Playdek about this, and it's probably just a small glitch which usually happens in the first version of an app. It will certainly be fixed.

Worth your time, worth the dollar.

I think it's great. I love the animations and the trippy background lighting. Even the music is pretty good. Pass and play works great. If I'm going to play asynchronous I would probably chose a different game. Worth 99 cents for sure.

That's true. Asynchronous wouldn't be as fun with this game as, say, Ascension. I do think simultaneous online play would be pretty fun with this game, though. But like you said, pass and play works great, and the AI is pretty stellar for solo play.

I like the game, but I have to disagee on the background animation. The first thing I looked for was a way to turn it off. Unfortunately, I didn't find one. Please Playdek, let me turn that animation off.

I bought the game, and I like it a lot. Certainly well worth 99c.

That said...

They need to get the rules right.

They need to fix the bugs.

They need a way to disable the animation.

Garrrr! I just rolled 7 & 7 and the game wouldn't let me place them. Even though I had a runner on 7 and an unplaced runner to boot. I hope they fix these bugs soon 'cause otherwise I really like the game. Oh, the AI could be tougher.

Update is on the loose. I can't swear the bugs in basic rules application are gone, but I haven't seen them since I updated (I'm used to seeing them pretty much every game).

The only bugs I have seen appear after finishing a game. Sometimes the wrong name comes up when someone wins or when choosing to play another game, the previous game's names are duplicated or lost.

I've been enjoying the iOS version, and with update haven't seen obvious bugs.

One thing that I'm definitely missing is the ability to choose different variants. As the Gryphon version has different variants listed in the rules sheet, I had hoped they would be included as rules enforced, but I suppose for the most part, we can just choose to enforce ourselves.

Easily worth $0.99!
