We should be seeing Reiner Knizia's Ra hitting the App Store soon too. I think the devs (who also did Medici) said they were hoping to have it available by Halloween.
Agree about the lack of multiplayer. The one sign of hope is that Money, High Society, and Kingdoms are all based off the same engine. As the dev continues to use the same engine; benefits can be shared across them. So if hotseat comes to Kingdoms then I'd expect to see it in Money and High Society as well.
The price (3.99) is high in my opinion. That price point is just a dollar short of games like carcassonne, samurai, uno, and blockus; which have internet based multiplayer and a dollar more than neuroshima hex which at the least has hotseat.
Also, Ra is shaping up really nicely. It's based off the same engine used in Medici so it feels familiar but they (codito) took the time to add some great polish and effects.
