App description: TUAW Review: "Serious board game fans have been anxiously waiting for this app ever since it was announced and I'm happy to say that this latest Reiner Knizia port to the digital realm is totally worth the wait."

Through the Desert is one of the best known games by legendary board game designer Dr. Reiner Knizia. In this masterpiece of the light strategy genre, up to four players compete for control over the desert.

The game is quick to learn and relies on very simple rules. At the same time, it has an enormous depth - similar to board game classics like Go and Reversi.

Through the Desert fits well on an iPhone display, allowing up to four players to play hotseat on the same device. If you need additional challenges, the game also includes artificial intelligence players and allows you to challenge your friends over the net.

torulf's comments:

They were sent in at the same time. We hope Labyrinth for iPhone will be released in a day or two.

I'm playig on a 3G with ios 4.1.2 and there is a small problem : no text appears in the main menu.

I see the guy holding the scroll, but the scroll stays totally blank. I guess it should say "new game, options, ect..."

rebooted, cleared memory, reinstalled, still the same. Anyone with the same problem?
