I am a forum regular over on the Stately Play web site. It’s my go-to site for mobile gaming news. You should check it out! It has been the source for a few of my app posts here on Dude! Take Your Turn!
I may have to change my opinion about them, however, out of sheer jealousy.
Through the Ages is a wonderful civilization building game that consists of nothing but cards. And guess what? Cards look great on your phone or tablet!
(Since we have the same first name, I can look at this shot and pretend that it’s me enjoying this instead of him…*jealous sigh*)
Seriously, given the screen shots in Dave’s article (the one here is just an example, as they are all breath-taking), this game will blow you away.
Produced by Czech Games Edition, the app has had a long and rocky road to development. People have been referring on Boardgame Geek to the assumed vapor-ware status of the app for it seems like generations (but is probably only 2-3 years).
I’m not in the beta (and I’m really sad about that), but knowing that it is looking this good gives me great hope for it coming out this year sometime.
The beta only has online play right now, so no idea how they’re going to implement the AI.
But at this rate, who really needs AI? Sit down there in the back. I know you want it.
Check out the article for Dave’s experiences with the game. I’m not going to steal his thunder.
I’m just going to wait here in jealous anticipation as my iTunes wallet starts to cry.
