  • 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.

    The tutorial isn't as good as Evolution, but it was enough to make me buy the physical game. And once you know the rules it's just as hard to put down as Evolution. I only wish it allowed for 4 player games.

    Excellent if limited implementation of Oceans. Really wish all the scenario cards were available and all the deeps cards. Pretty good deeps deck for what's there though. AI is woefully bad even on the hardest difficulty ("Medium") which I paid to unlock. Hoping for a proper Hard AI that doesn't randomly make inexplicably bad plays. Overall enjoyable.
  • Problems solved! Game is excellent! Dec 22, 2020

    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.

    So far, it's fun. I'm playing this on the mobile app to preview the real thing, and it's great. My only issue is the touch and hold to read cards, which is super sensitive. Might be better to just 'tap to expand, tap to shrink again' for that instead of tap and hold. Paid for the expansion, and I hope more comes out.
  • Love it Nov 24, 2020

    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.

    An excellent game to play, the app does a stellar job of replicating the board game and is extremely cheap for the value you get. There are no bugs that I can find, and the aesthetic quality and otherwordly charm of the board game translates perfectly to the app. My only criticism is that the game does not appear to have a Hard AI yet, so at the moment it is too easy for an experienced player. Overall, I cannot recommend this app highly enough, you should definitely consider it.

    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.
  • 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?

    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!

  • 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..

    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).
  • Great game Feb 1, 2021

    By Chunky Boi 420 69
    This is a very fun game but could you make it so that you can play against more than 1 AI because that would be wonderful :) Could you also add more deep cards?

  • Great Game But Still Glitch’s Nov 24, 2020

    By asnyc75
    I have all the physical evolution games and now getting this is very exciting. The game is working pretty well but on my first game I got stuck on the discard card turn and even though I was winning I was forced to leave the game. The game still has some bugs but those will probably be removed over time so considering it’s free just get it
  • Jan 14, 2021

    By Samuel Palumbo
    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
  • Good game, except crushing Dec 29, 2020

    By zyx219
    I used to play this board game a lot, so I love this app. But there are way too many crushing issues. Sometimes it’s random, sometimes the app just can’t handle a specific situation, like whenever the AI is trying to play the kraken card, app will crash. Please fix these problems, they’re annoying! Thanks

    Fun, but some glitches. I got stuck in a glitch where I couldn't make a move. I had all deep cards, but couldn't reach Cambrian explosion because there were still 2 more food left. The game is too quick, replay value is very limited.

    By Ryan Bauer
    Great game but I paid the for the $1 expansion for the added difficulty and the game is still too easy. Please implement hard AI difficulty.

    By Dork Matter
    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.

    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
  • Game is amazing; app crashes May 20, 2021

    By disappointedinadblock
    Game is fantastic! Kudos to north star for getting a mobile app going also. It plays well—when it doesn’t crash totally!!
  • 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.
  • Beautiful game, great theme, but crashes all the time Apr 30, 2021

    By BrianS819
    Game is fun to play, medium AI is significantly better than easy. Unfortunately this game crashes multiple times in a single play through making it basically unplayable. Please fix this!
