Decided to take a chance and get this instead of the other "Settlers" of Catan that is also $5. Wow this is awesome so far. Took about 4 mins to download and 6 mins to install. It has 35 screenshots for help plus more in game help. Animations are nice from fish popping out of the water to rabbits running around, etc.

I really like how they have a small slider for zooming in/out and keep the two fingers pinching for multiple selecting of units.

Ok now gonna post about 100 screenshots I took.

No freeplay is hugely disappointing but, what can you do.

Booting the game up for the first time right now.

MrBass, I'm playing the first mission and while I have built the woodcutter's hut, he doesn't seem to be doing a whole lot of woodcutting. Is that normal?

Great game.


However, what am I missing here? The down load took at least twice the space it is listed at. I started with close to 700mb and now I have 70mb. Is this always the case with games and I am now just seeing this because I am low on space?

Game is pretty fun! No sign of a freeplay mode, but there seems to be quite a lot of missions spread throughout 4 tribes.

The gameplay is pretty good so far in the first mission (much better than Rise of the Lost Empires). The whole look and set-up of the screen was well put together and I have had no problems yet. There are a ton of buildings to construct along with many units and workers to put together.

It's a really good game, even though freeplay may not be included. But, who knows? Gameloft may hopefully take the time to add some updates that include it later on.

I just hope all the buildings look different for all the tribes if not, it'll look really lazy. Given that the game is pretty big, I don't think they skimped out on the art.

Edit: Jesusrules, that's highly unlikely. Gameloft doesn't seem to believe in updates that bring in new content. They fix bugs and that's it.

Yeah, I've noticed that, just being hopeful.

Great game, I love the ambiance and how my screen seems to came alive with activity!
