Upside down world Tue, 13 July 2010 11:14
I think the app looks great & would play great but has one big issue for my partner & I... one of use has to play looking at the map upside down. Neither of us wants to, so we don't use this app at all.

Also having the the other player's tiles upside down doesn't help either. Please fix this so both players can use the map the right way up & all the tiles display the same way as well.

Definitely want to give this a good rating on iTunes so am waiting for an update where this will be fixed, please.

Because this computer version is based on a board game that came before it, it closely mimics that experience; so yes, the board is "upside down" for the player sitting across the board.

Doing otherwise (ie showing the boards right up from two different perspectives) is unfortunately not a trivial task as it would require creating a second perspective completely from scratch. Crying or Very Sad

So I am afraid this won't happen anytime soon: the list of other must-have features we want to implement first is just too long.

I'm going to disagree with the previous post. At first I was a little confused as to why the second player sees things "upside down", but after a play or two I prefer this. It makes it easier to quickly spot your own tokens and as Eric notes adds to the feeling of actually playing the board game.

I'm glad to hear that this will not be changed, and would not even recommend it as a future consideration. I would rather the developers focus on more content, not minor (from game play not from game design) changes to the display.

I hate the upside view when I am playing against the bot. Drives me crazy...

Can't it at least be like playing 2 players side by side where the screen rotates while it's the bots turn?

Is there a way to completely bypass watching the bot make their moves?
