This game is really good, the only thing that brings it down for me is the3D map, hard to navigate once it gets big. Other then that this game still plays great and a good compliment for any 4x player

Great classic port, music alone brings back many fond memories.

Was $0.99 in February. Looks like it's abandoned. The latest 5 reviews on iTunes seem to tell the whole story - bad UI; bad AI; great game; you decide.

Erm, I have it on my mini and it's fine. A bit clunky? Maybe, but it's a port of a pretty old PC game. Abandoned? The descriptions says that the devs lowered the price in hopes of more sales; money going into making Ascendancy 2.

Most games like this have flaws...I have Wierd Worlds in Infinite Space, it essentially has the exact same gui as the old computer version, but it's still fun as hell.

Ascendancy is one of the best 4X games you can get on iOS so for three bucks I think it is a great deal. I got the game when it came out and it was money very well spent. The amount of replay value is immense. The UI is quite complex and a bit difficult to play on a small iPhone screen but definitely not game breaking. It would be great to see an update for widescreen so the game could use the additional space for UI. Great classic game and really worth grabbing if you are into 4X games.

Adding another recommendation for Ascendancy; getting it at $2.99 is a good deal.
