This is my first post over here. I'm just a simple occasional player of this (once) nice game.
This is one of the few games I enjoy playing on my iPad from time to time.
Then there was this update. And a week later I felt like playing Stratego once again.
First (and this is not your fault!) I can't login using my Gamecenter account.
The I created a new account. I'm shocked. Perhaps you don't believe me, but I really thought something went wrong during the update and a different app was installed.
Using google and stumbling upon the signature of MickM made me realise that this look&feel was meant to be.
First of all, I bought the initial game add-free. (but I'm happy to donate again for a game I DO like)
Besides that, the adds are way too long...really way too long. This is short term strategy. this will cost you players. trust me.
I see a lot of complaints about how the game is now played. I can't say anything about that, because I haven't played the game since this horrid update. Not because of the rules of not able to save a settup (i'll gladly buy slots again for a game I enjoy).
But simply because on the iPad this looks like i'm playing it on a 1995 nintendo DS!
So much wasted space! small pieces to move. Not a nice overview.
I can understand that this update brought you a nice deal from Jumbo. But please, I beg you please respect your players!
This is not a well thought update. No matter what excuses you bring. It's a 1:1 copy of a tableboard game to a mobile device. That's not how it works. You know that, because you got it right before this horrid update.
Again, i'm an amateur player, loose as much as I win. Don't care much about the special rules. But I do care about how easy a game is played. quick, nice look&feel, modern and it gives my a feeling of enjoyment.
All 4 are gone!
I allmost never make posts like this. But I've never seen such a step-back as this update.
Can you please tell us more about a roadmap of future updates?
During my day job I'm very engaged with customer satisfaction and accompany changes in complex situations. So I do know how difficult it is to keep all stakeholders happy. But a well brought change is not done by just listening to your client. It's done by challenging them.
