Great Game! - Great game! No issues with installation nor any other issues with playing the game. Works great! Wish you could disable animations all together as sometimes it does make the game move along a little longer than it should; however it’s super fun.

Review by Calabiyau

Crashes a lot. - Great game. Just like the board game. In fact, I bought this at the same time as I bought the board game so I could play it when there were no friends around. The problem is that the game crashes a lot. I’m playing through the introductory Campaign and it crashes several times in each scenario, except maybe the first one. If they fixed this crash problem, I would give the game more stars. I’m using an iMAC 2.8GHz Intel Core 5 with 4GB RAM and OS X version 10.9.4.

Review by anyrose58

I’ve always liked Catan - I’ve played the table top version for years. I have one main complaint about this app, however. It takes far too long to load. Even after I’ve closed all other apps, and defragged the hard drive, and cleared out the cache, it still takes more than five minutes to load. Why is that? And will the deverlopers fix it?

Needs Online - After purchasing the app for My Iphone, and I loved it. Thought what the hell the online was great and the game was fast and very good looking. Was incredibly dissapoionted to spend 4x the amount and get no online and slower loading. They need to add online for the OSX!

Version 1.3
Review by swunderboy

Fun when it works - Been trying to play for the past few days since purchasing and it crashes a good 85% of the time it's in use. Saving helps you start back up where you left off but having paid $17 with the expectation that it would be stable enough to use with normal gameplay is leaving me extremely disappointed.

Review by Sun2874313

Unplayable Graphics - Absolute Garbage - As other reviewers have noted, the game board is angled, which makes it very difficult to see some of the tiles. It’s also just a pain. The graphics are muddled and have serious contrast issues, which makes it difficult to see pieces on the game board and keep track of moves. User interface controls are strangely complicated. I like that you can customize boards, but despite loving this feature, there’s little you can do with this game. It’s just impossible to play with these awful graphics and crazy controls. This version costs actual money, and it’s the worst electronic Catan I’ve ever seen. The iPad version is the best. I like that version a lot, actually. I wish they’d make that even more customizable (option to remove the Robber, and option to make your own boards), add some even tougher bots, and expand it to the Mac. This version should be in the trash.
