Good, add turn-based multiplayer=Awesome
Great port from table-top to App. Still needs workable turn based multiplayer to allow playing with friends online. Could also use an interface that shows your piece one hex away from where your finger is to improve placement accuracy. Aside from that, a great App version of a very fun board game.
I haven't played this as a board game, but I think this app conveys the feel of a board game very nicely. The game itself is fun, fairly quick, and just difficult enough. It rewards some strategy as well as tactics. On the iPhone it feels a little crowded but I see no way around that. Improvements would be: a way to undo an accidentally misplaced tile; a way to see the other players' scores and remaining pieces, during your own turn.
