Really liking this so far. Has a bit of Risk to it and some Small World as well but manages to be very much it's own game. Played over epochs (6) and less about direct confrontation and more about managing your resources, taking over and controlling your own little piece of the world.
The app seems very polished and easy to play. The tutorial seems complete and gets you playing right away (I've been looking at this game for a long time but hadn't actually played until the app). I've mainly played on my iPad (4), did fire it up on my iPhone 5 for a minute and it seems like the hit boxes in the almanac were hard to hit and the app did actually crash to the springboard while trying to close an almanac screen. I did flip my phone from what the app "wanted" and I've seen this cause some issues with buttons and selection on other apps so that may be part of it. To be clear - no crashes on the iPad through tutorial and 1 game so far. I will say I wish ALL of the cards could be zoomed in. When you select or choose to use an event there is a zoom before you confirm but in the almanac, while I was trying to teach myself, there was no zoom and it's difficult / near impossible to read all the text. Overall doesn't affect gameplay too much but it is a slight annoyance.
I just gifted this to my girlfriend and I'm looking forward to seeing how the multiplayer works.
