I just bought the app, and although I'm getting to understand it better, I still have some questions:
- How can I influence the game? To me it feels like I just randomly tap a location on the map, and then I have to hope that I get the correct green icons. But is that really all the strategy there is?
- Adventures have titles, and then an action icon surrounded by more icons. It looks nice but it doesn't make much sense if you haven't played the boardgame. I think you have to either clarify all the visuals, or make the screen simpler.
- The map screen is very small on the iPhone. The left menu is downright confusing and hardly legibile on the small iPhone screen.
- The tutorial text is very long, but still a lot of questions remain unanswered. Maybe you can include a help screen on every game screen?
All in all, I found the game beautifully made, but strangely simple considering the huge amount of tutorial text. I don't feel I have all that much control. I think the user interface could be simplified and could paint a clearer picture of the game's progress and the status of your adventurers.
As it is, the app tries to hard to resemble the board game, thereby confusing new players who never played that.
