Great game but needs online multiplayer It seems the developers meant to include that but never did. Too bad, the game would be perfect if it were there.

Unplayable on a phone Everything is way too small, colors are rather blunt, text is much harder to read than anything else on the phone. Using drag and drop is a terrible idea, as you have to select one of five small close to each other camels and drag it to a target place hidden under your finger. When the AI plays, you have to watch lengthy animations, which is pretty boring for the initial placement. The in-game help uses about one fifth of the display size, i.,e., about 4% of its area. How can anybody do this??? On the left I can see "This app is compatible with your device", but obviously it was developed for much bigger screen than my 4.7 inch. I guess the game itself is very good, but the implementation is just garbage. Except for the colors, it's pretty, but the usability is zero.

Fantastic strategy game! no luck, no whining. just pure strategy. only problem is that it doesn't enforce the “no leaders of same color in first round” rule, which really sucks. fix it and you can have your fifth star!

Online play broken Despite the tutorial and player selection describing online play, the menu option for online play is only in the iOS version of the app; that menu option has been removed from the Android version. Clearly the Android port is half-assed. Have also had issues with the display blacking out on the main menu. Feeling rather ripped off about the network play - I didn't discover that it's disabled on Android until I'd convinced a friend to buy it on iOS.
