Looks great. But, so desperately needs a video...

Looks neat. Waiting for impressions/someone who has played the board game before.

This looks very good and Codito has done a great job in the past with Medici and Ra.

Any idea whether $4.99 will be the price point for Tikal for the foreseeable future? I got burned on the pricing for Ra when it was dropped only a couple of days after initial release.

Thanks to VeganTnT for posting this even before we had a chance!

The $4.99 is the price for the foreseeable future. We might put Medici and Ra on sale again to celebrate, but this is the definite launch price for Tikal.

Happy gaming!

Never played the board game, but I loved their Knizia games so instabuy here. I'll leave impressions tonight when I've had a chance to play.

The first impression with this is very positive. The game seems to have a lot of depth, and even though I've only played one game I can see that there are different strategies that could be used. The presentation is great. I had a few issues where I meant to tap on something and it registered something else. This would have been quite annoying if I hadn't noticed that there was an undo button in the menu. Overall, the price point will scare many away, but I recommend it for fans of Euro board games.

I'm really surprised that this isn't getting more attention. I guess it goes to show the sorry state of the app store when 5 bucks for a port of a 30 dollar board game is seen as too expensive.
