App description: *** The best-selling board-game app over the past 10 years and still counting! ***

PLAY ONE OF THE WORLD's MOST SUCCESSFUL BOARD GAMES!
Millions of players worldwide have either played Reiner Knizia's award winning game in the original board game format, or have played on one of the online sites in the 10 years since launch of the board game. But the iPhone version could be the best yet .......by far! The high res screen of the iPhone perfectly suits the colours of the game, and the iPhone's super-intuitive controls make it so easy to place those tiles!

INGENIOUS is HOURS of SHEER FUN.
The already addictive nature of the Ingenious board game is greatly enhanced on the iPhone, giving the user a really exciting- and graphically stimulating-experience every time. Build lines of colour tiles, try and block your opponent, and remember that the winner isn't necessarily the player with the highest scores in only a few colours!
You must excel in all your colours.

EASY ACCESS:
The rules are really easy to learn and a comprehensive tutorial will introduce you to the game. Within minutes you'll be playing effortlessly, even as a first time player of the game.

MUSIC WHILE YOU PLAY.
Just choose your favourite artist or songs from the music iPod on your phone. And choose a different graphic background to suit your mood.

YOU'LL NEED STRATEGY to beat the AI opponents. But you have a choice of easy, medium or hard (as well as the option to play against the clock if you wish). You choose! And the app will record your best scores and best performances. There is room for up to 3 different player profiles.

PLAY ONLINE if you are feeling competitive. Compare your skills with leaderboards and challenging achievements via Game Center.

Or choose to play single player TOURNAMENTS and try to win multiple games in a row. You can also choose to play against the clock in some of the rounds.

PLAY the SOLITAIRE game: This is a seriously satisfying feature of the iPhone version! Instead of playing against opponents you use all your skills to create a really high score.

It's a fun board strategy game that is easy to learn. There's a bit of a learning curve to learn how scoring works but not hard at all. Then you begin scheming strategies to try and it's good fun.

Limitations I see with this version are play is one on one only against the CPU or the solitaire mode. The real game is lots of fun with more than two players and pass and play with human opponents would really make this great.

This is one of the best semi casual amstract strategy games out there so I can only assume it will be the same on the iphone.
