Description

TUAW Review: "Serious board game fans have been anxiously waiting for this app ever since it was announced and I'm happy to say that this latest Reiner Knizia port to the digital realm is totally worth the wait."

Through the Desert is one of the best known games by legendary board game designer Dr. Reiner Knizia. In this masterpiece of the light strategy genre, up to four players compete for control over the desert.

The game is quick to learn and relies on very simple rules. At the same time, it has an enormous depth - similar to board game classics like Go and Reversi.

Through the Desert fits well on an iPhone display, allowing up to four players to play hotseat on the same device. If you need additional challenges, the game also includes artificial intelligence players and allows you to challenge your friends over the net.

What's New in Version 1.4

* Nifty autozoom feature to make it easier to place camels.
* Minor bugfixes: quitting while AI was playing, savegame fix.

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.

4/5 stars

Nicely done

:
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.
