  • Great app Sep 19, 2020

    By Cubato
    Plays well versus the AI, with no lag or crashes. The user interface is well implemented and gives you easy access to the current score and eligible hexes one can move to. The undo can be a bit clunky at times (e.g. to undo a single move you have to finish the entire action). Also, not sure how to tell at a glance which resources in the bottom row can be reduced via the Upgrade action. These are minor complaints, I still think the game is well worth it.

    Great adaptation nice graphics and I'm glad that there's multiplayer option. Can't wait gor expansions :) I have 2 issues though: 1. Notifications sometimes are missing and if there is any, it dissapears without explicit dismiss. The 2. Is that it's really hard to check other other players' info during matches especially on smaller screens.

  • Released finished game EDIT: Nevermind I’m dumb Sep 17, 2020

    You can’t use “2 move” action on the same unit (character or worker). Turn 1 of game 1 and I can’t move my character 2 spaces to pick up encounter. If this very basic action is wrong who knows what else is wrong. Please refund money or fix game. Pretty sad for $8 game. Edit: I followed the digital in game rules link and under top row move it says to move 2 different (italicized) units. I thought that was a change in a newer edition or something because we’ve played Scythe for years without noticing you couldn’t use both move actions on same unit. I opened my physical rule book and there is was. Two different units. Now I’m questioning everything I thought I knew about everything as I may have just worm holed into a parallel universe where the only difference is you can’t move the same character twice in scythe.

    Great game, and good adaptation to the mobile. I have two complaints. 1) It is a bit hard to understand the faction mat and upgrades on it. 2) It is missing the ability to revert actions before ending the turn for online games. Since the screen is relatively small, it is easy to make mistakes during the action phase and there is no way to revert them. In Terra Mystica for instance, you can refresh your turn unless you hit the end turn button. This type of functionality may help online gamers.

  • Needs some work Oct 9, 2020

    One of my favorite board games. App needs work. Having to be online just to set up asynchronous game is not ideal. I haven’t found a way to activate the “undo” button during a multiplayer game. And there is a hack I’ve found that pretty much breaks combat. When combat is decided, before you click the “accept” button to resolve the fight, just exit the app. Reload, and enter the game again. App will start combat back from the beginning...after you have already been shown your opponents combat strength used for the fight. I’ve done it twice. I’m not certain it will work every time, but it needs to be addressed.

    Scythe is an excellent board game. This app looks good so far and I was able to log in via my Asmodee account and add friends within the app, which is more than I can do in other Asmodee games (Terraforming Mars). HOWEVER, that’s all I’ve seen so far. Why? Because for some nonsensical reason you cannot invite friends into an asynchronous (here called Play & Go) game unless everyone is online. We have been trying to coordinate via forum for four people spread across 7 hours of time zones to all log in at the exact same time just to start a game. We still haven’t managed to do this. Is there a reason Asmodee can’t figure out how to do something that other developers figured out nearly a decade ago at this point? I’ll update my review accordingly should the experience improve, but when you spend premium money on a top-rated board game made by the biggest board game app developer in the world you expect basic functionality without having to jump through asinine hoops.

  • Crashes at load screen Sep 20, 2020

    By frtahkf
    I use a first generation iPad Air - the app quits before the game even loads and then when I log back in I get a prompt saying the save data is corrupted and I can’t resume the game. I try to start a new game and it crashes again. It’s only $9 so it’s not a huge loss but still a loss, none the less. Side note: this seems to be a consistent problem with game apps on first generation iPad Air tablets - other games I own like Mystic Vale and Evolution have the same problem where it crashes and the game is unplayable. I read reviews where older model iPhones have no issues with game apps so I’m not sure why this particular model of iPad is such garbage.

    As an adaptation, it's great, but the multiplayer is too clunky. A friend and I bought it when we heard it had asychronous multiplayer, but you have to both be in the app at the same time, making it very clunky and kind of cancelling the appeal of not having to schedule time to play together. If you could invite a friend to start a game without having to be online at the same time, I'd change to 5 stars.

    This app/game is awesome until it crashes. I've been playing online games for a week and those far 2 of the 3 games we were unable to finish when one of the players game locked up and couldn't end a move. It happened to me on Android and the other game it happened to my opponent on iOS. Both times the game could not be finished. Save your $8.99 until they fix this bug.

    I love this board game, and have been waiting for this app for months. I’m disappointed it is a little basic. The tutorial is more like a series of unconnected tips, and accessing the rules simply takes you to a PDF of the rule book for the board game, which actually doesn’t look all that much like the app does. When I press the help button (?) I would expect it to help explain what was on the screen at the time, but instead it just shows you a standard help screen. Overall, it works, but is not really great in any aspect.

    I love Scythe and this app certainly scratches the itch. No expansions yet, but I imagine that will come with time. Rise of Fenris would be a great addition for sure! The gameplay is smooth. The graphics are good. The interface is a bit tight, but with how much information they have to give you, it's really a great job. Great game. Love the app!

  • Amazing - IFA?? Nov 17, 2020

    By Anon5832
    I love this game, and I think the LoU guys did a fine job with this implementation! I’d love for some more UX enhancements that make it a little easier to access game information, particularly modals or slide outs that can be toggled, or perhaps a small icon-based hud when an entity or icon is tapped. Most importantly, I’m hoping we can get Invaders from Afar for this platform - being able to practice Albion or Togawa on the go would be incredibly helpful for my game!!

  • AI Change Oct 4, 2020

    By Vrosk
    Scythe is one of my favorite games, and this is an amazing format. I love being able to forego the setup required with the board game, and I like to be able to play on my own schedule. The only thing I wish this game had was a stronger AI. I’m a decent Scythe player (but not the best), and I have beaten the hard AI every time I have played against it be about 30 coins. If there was a harder AI, that would make this app even better.

    I LOVE THIS APP! It's got a great offline mode to go bots against varying difficult or, what I didn't expect, to have the people play the different factions, you just have to pass the phone around. I haven't tried it yet since of course the quarantine, but it's a great way to play the board game, especially I don't own it yet. It's great to scratch the itch to play the game and experiment with different strategies as you get used with the game mechanics, especially the objectives

  • Lazy graphic port Sep 19, 2020

    By Lost in Tactics
    Playing on: • iPad 2020 Pro 12.9 • iPhone 11 Pro Max 4 ⭐️ because looks nothing like Steam PC version, and steam pc version is nothing to begin with, graphics-wise. Barely any shadows & detail on worker models, pulls away immersion of an actual piece on a board. Faction Models (shiny, bright white pieces) with some sculpted features. No shadows or details. No graphical effort. For an Asmodee developed game - I’m shocked. Their quality used to be higher. I own majority Asmodee titles. Scythe deserved better. To me... this comes across like a rushed job. Get the money from the board game designer and dump all production values & team efforts on Gloomhaven. Scythe could had definitely used a tad more visual polish to produce stronger immersion. Game play is solid 5 stars!

  • Please add tutorial play thru Oct 8, 2020

    By OldSchool70!
    Picked this game as it’s not my normal board game style and am very pleased. I appreciate the game reminders as I find myself about to skip certain turn aspects. I will print out game instructions to reference but it would be great if the developers could add a tutorial to play thru. The how to play is great but for me the interaction of a play thru is needed. Great game and APP!

    I really love this game and the implementation is near perfect. Unfortunately the lack of an undo button in online multiplayer (even as an option for private games) is a serious issue when playing on a small device. It is too easy to accidentally moved a unit to a hex when attempting to click on a different unit.

  • Great iPad version, constantly crashes Sep 23, 2020

    By Great Blog in the Sky
    I’ve been playing this game for a few years in all its versions. Been awaiting the iPad version for a while and very happy that it has arrived. Looks beautiful, plays great, but it crashes constantly. I’m talking multiple times per game. It’s very frustrating, especially if playing online with others. I would recommend waiting until they get the bugs worked out before buying it.

    This was release so far after the steam version of the game I would have expected they fix some of the bugs by now.... only easy ai is silly, not being able to look at your action mat, not being able to skip all animation, the upgrade system and much more is all junk.... moreover there is a big rule exploit that happens if you are saxony, their mechs aren’t supposed to move to uncontrolled mountains....but the game allows it

  • Impressive but weak AI Oct 17, 2020

    By Gamerdad11817
    The production values and UI are great and playing solo play runs smoothly, even on a phone! My biggest complaint is that the AI seems too easy. I’ve played physical scythe less than 10 times (a couple years ago), and I never studied or prepped any strategies or know any opening combos. I have now played 1 on 1 against the hard AI 3 times and easily won by a large margin each time. My last victory was 49-18! I also find undo a little clunky, but that’s not a big deal. I’m not interested in multi-player, so I’m not sure I’ll get many more plays out of this without AI improvements.

  • Works on iPhone but crashes on iPad Sep 18, 2020

    By ace9864
    Played on iPhone and it is good if you have a lot of experience with physical board game, otherwise you may miss a lot. For example I knew I should be able to specify how many workers I want to carry with mech so I put the effort in to figure out this is hidden under tapping the label. Or how to find details on your objectives or the building bonus. I then tried it on iPad to see if it utilizes the larger screen, but it just crashes even after a hard restart. I expect they will improve it with time.

    Was excited to play this on my Pixel Slate, after playing on Steam and the physical board game with all its expansions. But unfortunately it's unplayable, with severe flickering. I'm surprised there wasn't a warning from the Play Store about incompatibility. I guess I should have read the reviews, but I was excited at the prospect of playing it on a mobile device and I've never had an issue playing other games on this device (including Viticulture). Hope this issue gets resolved.

    I've bought the steam version, and I decided to buy the android version to play with my friends from abroad. But the asynchronous mode is pathetic. We have to login at the same time to start the game. How is that asynchronous? I'm deleting and getting a refund. For solo mode, the app is great.
