  • Fun game. Crash issues after purchase Dec 9, 2020

    By ACountB
    I enjoyed the basic game as a quick way to get some practice and better understand the rules. I recently purchased the Deep pack to have more deep cards, the pass and play feature, and the medium level AI. In the middle of the games with the medium AI, however, the game crashes. When I reopen the app, I am able to resume my game, but the played cards are different (often a tentacled is in place of a played deep card). After continuing, the game crashed again and this time I was unable to play cards after restoring the game. This has happened each time I’ve tried that mode.

    My first experience with oceans was the board game so when i found out they made a mobile version I had to play it. The game its self is pretty much like the original board game, fun and each game can end up very different. On mobile it can be a little difficult (still doable) to play because of how much is on the screen but its actually quite great on pc (playing on an emulator).

    This game is very entertaining as far as board games go. The mechanics are hard to learn, but once you do, you can start to really enjoy the verselility oceans presents. My only problem is that there isn't much in the way of a proper online mode, but, otherwise, this game is a cambrian explosion of fun.

  • Will Be Amazing When It’s Complete Feb 15, 2021

    This game has huge potential. The UI, graphics, animation, etc. are superb. However, I do think there are major problems attributable to it being incomplete. There are some cards that are missing text. I don’t think they’ve translated all of the deep cards into the game. And the AI player’s actions happen so quickly that it’s hard to keep track of what it’s doing. I also think that the AI is incredibly easy in it’s current state. Update: I realized that more deep cards are available as in-app purchases, which is awesome and I’ve already purchased the first pack, which also enabled the “medium” difficulty AI, which is very challenging. The only problem is frequent crashing, but it’s somewhat ok because after a crash you can resume the game roughly where you left off. This game will be a 4 if they solve the stability and a 5 if they implement a log window so that you can review the often rapid sequence of actions that occur.

    Wife & I play this daily. It's a firm favourite alongside to our other go-to pass & play game, Star Realms. Oceans is a unique and excellent engine-builder with truly deep and varied strategic options - really fun to experiment with different combinations, as the digital version alleviates the laborious upkeep of the physical version. Easy enough to grok the rules after a game or two, but the interface and user-friendliness are a rough around the edges atm. Looking forward to updates

  • Everything is way too small on iPad Air 2 Nov 26, 2020

    By jileha
    The game looks nice with gorgeous graphics - if I could see them or at least zoom in on them. I aborted the tutorial because I cannot even see the information on the miniature cards to get a better idea what is what. As it is, the game is absolutely unplayable for me. ETA: Thanks for your reply. But having to touch each card just to find out what kind of type it is... maybe you could figure out a way to make better use of the available real estate. I see a lot of empty space on the screen, so I think there are various possibilities for an optimization. Maybe show the player’s entire hand large with a touch, or better still: make a large display the default and you can tap on the hand to minimize it if necessary.

  • Fun but broken Feb 14, 2021

    By Bohemonds
    This is a great game, at least when it will play. For a couple months now, after I get to the Deep, the game crashes two or three rounds later. I can reload but it just keeps crashing. So the game is unplayable. I’ve reported the problem repeatedly but it hasn’t been fixed. So, sadly, I’d say don’t get this game. It’s unplayable and they don’t seem interested in fixing it.

  • Fun but still glitchy Nov 30, 2020

    By Autmnmoon
    I enjoy the original board game and have so far enjoyed the app version but I have not managed to actually finish a game because the app always crashes a few rounds after the Cambrian explosion is triggered. If the crashing can be solved I would give this app 5 stars and even buy the extras package.

  • Love the game .... till it crashes Mar 2, 2021

    By TheSteelFox
    Bought the .99 cent upgrade because I love the game and wanted more cards. Now all the game does is crash. This needs to be fixed immediately. It has been two months since the last update and I have seen similar comments since then. I will gladly alter my rating when this is resolved..

  • Problems solved! Game is excellent! Dec 22, 2020

    By Widdlewade
    I can’t get the game to progress beyond the initial loading screen. Would be more than happy to change my review if this gets fixed. I am a huge fan of Northstar Games and would love to see up and running. 1st Edit: I have been able to get the game to load, unless I get the Moray Eel or Jellyfish load screens. On these screens I tap the continue button and nothing happens. The other load screens are slow, but eventually let me progress to the actual game. 2nd Edit: I’m playing on an iPad Air 2nd gen. I have gotten a few games to load, but I always reach a point where the game seems to get stuck and then crashes. It seems to happen when the Deep cards come into play. This is a real bummer, because I really enjoy this game. 3rd Edit: Got a new iPad. Problem solved! Game is fantastic! 5*’s all the way. BTW, the sound track is really beautiful on the new speakers.

    While playing the game on the app isn't as awesome of an experience as playing the board game itself (ie, this isn't a replacement for buying the board game), it IS really fun and it helped me learn the rules way faster and more enjoyably than I otherwise could have. I dont see myself sitting and playing this for hours, but it is a fun way to pass some time and gave me a rundown on how the game works. I would probably have spent at least a couple bucks on this app.

  • Love it Nov 24, 2020

    By Castielllll123
    Awesome game. The board game was great to play. I have the evolution app as well which was great and wasn’t expecting this to be as good quality. I was wrong. Just as good quality graphics. Just as easy to navigate the game. Can’t wait to actually play against human players. North Star games never disappoints.

    I was happy to find this on play store :) I also bought the pack. Now I'm just hoping that you guys can add multiplayer as soon as possible, like what y'all did for the evolution app. I mean, pass and play mode is nice and all, but the main reason I got this app was so that I could play at any time without needing players right next to me. It would be good if it's possible to have more than 1 AI opponent when playing AI mode. Finally, I would love to see more deep deck cards. Thanks!

  • Great adaptation, one issue though Nov 26, 2020

    By marxanderz
    Hello. I have Evolution, Climate, and Oceans. I love these games. I play them with my children and challenge them to see the deeper meaning behind the game. These mobile adaptations are great introductions to the games without having the setup and tear down etc. My single issue with this app is that I purchased the additional features, but cannot get them to show up in the app. I have tried to Restore Purchases, but the loading wheel just spins and freezes the game. I’ve uninstalled as well, but the issue continues. Any advice?

    My only issue is that when pressing and holding (to read a card), it is so sensitive that the card pop up doesn't stay long enough to read it. It takes multiple attempts. I would recommend implementing a "press here, press there" to play a card rather than the current "press and drag" since the game seems to think you are trying to play a card when you are just trying to read it. Each player's play area should also be a view toggle,so that you have more room to make things larger and easy to see

  • Love it but bugs... Dec 22, 2020

    By Mcclay
    Just purchased the medium AI for $0.99 and it quits out half way through the game:( please help with this! Other then that, it’s a great and easy way to introduce someone to the game and a good way to practice. Hoping they also consider making it dual player virtually.

  • Improved version of evolution. Game card is missing rules text. Feb 9, 2021
