How is the Android App now?
« on: December 01, 2015, 10:46:28 PM »
My brother asked me to buy it to play in his free time when we don't play and he feels like it. I remember hearing it was quite lacking and not that great. Is it any better now?

 :(y):(n)???

it's a sound implementation.

The AI is lacking compared to the iOS, but slightly better than the last time i played JCZ's.

There's not many expansions either:

My main gripe with this is that the AI opponents all seem to play in the same way regardless of their "personalities". And none of them are at all difficult to beat, even for a novice player who isn't giving the game their full attention.

It offers a fair range of expansions but not nearly so many as the iOS app and most of them are slightly buggy, especially around farm scoring. It isn't worth paying the extra money for these in my opinion, although I won't deny that, bugs aside, they're implemented quite well and do add to the playing experience.

Overall, I do play it every now and again and it's a reasonable way to waste 20 minutes or so. It's cheap too (if you're happy to stick to the basic game), which makes it quite difficult to resist for most people.
