also, you said slick interface so the UI handles all those card displays so they are readable but small enough to look organized? is there a tap to enlarge or is that necessary?
1) Tough to say. An escape plan is just some random objects and a numerical value. Whether it's 2 maps or a uniform and a food ration makes no difference beyond simply the symbols you need to match. After each successful escape more dice are added to the future plans.
2) You can choose to play against 1-4 opponents, AI or human. The AI difficulty is set universally for the game so once you choose Beginner, Advanced, or Expert, all AIs will be at that difficulty.
3) The cards are all very basic pictograms, no tricky text to worry about and the instructions are very easy to pull up in-game if you forget about any of the other special cards covered in the tutorial.
Worth noting, the game doesn't appear to save your state in games vs. AI when you exit thus I doubt it supports async play.
