A sample review

Hey guys, here is one of the reviews I got. I will post it here (with permission) so that others can see it. Not sure if that helps in anyway but it wouldnt hurt anybody

Well, generally the game is quite fun and as a strategy game fans I found this game really challenging and pretty hard to get 3 stars on the second map of each level (I assumes the three levels are easy,medium, and hard). Alright, my comment on each section that you requested:

Section 1. Turns
1.1 15 turns
1.2 22 turns
2.1 17 turns
2.2 38 turns
3.1 16 turns
3.2 28 turns
4.1 19 turns

Note: 1.1 means level one, first map (I code it as 1.1 and second map is .2 and so on). At this moment it seems I cant beat any level third map, as opponent too strong and difficult. You guys strategy are too strong!

Section 2. Bugs
None so far. Everything goes smooth and well.
Tested on iPhone 3GS iOS 4.3.5

Section 3. AI Difficulty
Well, the AI for second and third map of each level increase tremendously and pretty hard to win in required turns to get 3 stars. First map of each level is pretty easy and I could get 3stars from level 1-4.

Section 4. Suggestions
My impression on Hex Empire is great and the game play is interesting at least for me. Overall, Hex Empire is well designed, but aways there is still some rooms to improve it and make it even better!

Problems & Suggestions (P&S)
---------------------------------
1. P:Tutorial screen pop out every time launch the game, which is quite annoying!
S: Have a tutorial or help option in setting that enable or disable on next launch the game.

2. P: In game special attribute such as capitulate, give speech, and sign pact icons are place too near from each other.
S: Try to separate them a bit since there is so many space available. Unless you are planning to include more stuff at there.

3. P: Tutorial screen don't has scrolling downwards indicator.
S: Should include a scroll down indicator as I myself don't know it can scroll down until I randomly did it.

4. P: Close icon too small.
S: Should increase the size of the icon. As sometimes pretty hard to tap close.

5. P: Lack of victory sound effect when finished a map.
S: Should include glory and victory sound effect upon finishing any game.

6. In game zoom out icon, instead of putting "Search" icon act as zoom out map why dont change it to "Earth" icon ?

7. Missin credit screen.

8. Try to decrease AI difficulty for second and third map.

9. It takes some time to generate game, is that possible to generate it by default since everything is already set and we dont have options to change the game. Loading time is needed when players had change some option of the game.

10. Do you guys plan to integrate with Game Center and any social networking plugin like facebook and twitter?

That's it for the comments and suggestions. Hope my feedback able to help you guys make the game even better!
