News, reviews, previews, and opinions about board gaming on iPhones, iPads, iPods and even Android devices. (iPhone board games, iPad board games, iPod board games, Android board games)

App News: Catan Universe Appears, Terra Mystica Updated, Hey That's My Fish Spared, and more...

Catan: Universe Appears on Steam
I launched Steam today to see a surprise on the Popular New Releases list. Catan: Universe seems to usher in a relaunch of Catan on digital platforms.

The games is free to download but there is a cost to unlock the full game once you’ve started. The description mentions that soon the game will be available on Mac, iOS, and Android (currently it is PC only). The subtitle “Universe” seems to refer to a couple things. First, there seems to be an avatar system and some sort of player village. Second, the game features Catan and the expansions as well as the card game Rivals. This seems like a bold new step for the digital version that has been fairly stagnant for a few years now.

This new version is developed by Exozet who also did some of the recent digital HABA games. Head to Steam to see the trailer and check out some screenshots below. This is all we know for now but I’m going to dig around and see what else I can discover.





Terra Mystica Updated with Sire Losealot and More
Terra Mystica has had a wild week on the app store. The reactions have been mostly positive to this behemoth of a digital board game.

In true Digidiced style, an update has already been released for the game. The update addresses a few AI issues, which has been one of the major complaints. Check out the full list:





Hey That’s My Fish Saved from the 64Bit Apocalypse
One of my favorites, Hey That’s My Fish from FFG was on the iOS 11 chopping block, but no longer! On Twitter earlier this week FFG revealed that the app is good to go.





Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles
Whilst discovering the mysterious Catan mentioned at the top of this article, I saw this interesting Warhammer Fantasy game. These naval battles look pretty wild.

I don’t know much about this game so far, but I’m looking forward to getting a closer look. It is available on Mac and PC and has overall positive reviews.

Check out some screens:

App News: Card Thief Coming Android, TTA Beta Impressions, Terra Mystica Coming to Steam and more...

Card Thief is Coming to Android Tomorrow
Card Thief is an amazing card based stealth game. It’s been a hit on iOS and tomorrow the Android platform is getting in on the action.

If you are an Android user, be sure to pick up this game when it hits tomorrow. You won’t be disappointed.





Dave’s Through the Ages Beta Impressions
Dave has had his hands on a beta for Through the Ages for a week now, lucky dog. Actually, I’m a moron who can barely comprehend Terra Mystica, so maybe I should give myself some time to recover first.

Over at Stately Play, Dave has put together a full preview of the Beta, so head there for full details. That being said, I’ll post some of the cool screenshots he’s been taking below:





Millennium Blades Randomizer Updated
Are you a fan of the amazing meta masterpiece that is Millennium Blades? Did you know the official Level 99 website features a digital randomizer? I didn’t!

A recent update has made it even better. Be sure to head on over and check it out.





Terra Mystica Gets the Greenlight
Terra Mystica just released Wednesday on iOS and Android, but the Digidiced team is not resting on their laurels.

Yesterday they announced that Terra Mystica has been greelit for Steam. That means in around 3 weeks, you’ll be able to get in some mystical terraforming on PC. Lucky!

To track the progress, be sure to follow their Greenlight page.




Sentinels of Earth Prime Could Go Digital
Sentinels of Earth Prime is a new cooperative game based on the rules of Sentinels of the Multiverse. If the stretch goals are hit, it will also come to digital platforms, being developed by Handelabra.



The board game appears to be a partnership between Green Ronin and Greater Than Games. It takes the bones of Sentinels and lays on the characters from Mutants and Masterminds. This seems like a dream partnership.

They’ve already hit their funding goal, but there is still a ways to go before it gets a digital version. Come check out the project..



Carrier Deck Seeks Beta Testers
Slitherine, providers of crunchy wargaming goodness, are looking for testers for their next iOS title.

Carrier Deck seems to be a management sim about overseeing an aircraft carrier, not a sweet deck building game as I had hoped. It actually looks like an interesting take on iOS strategy gaming.

If interested, you can apply for the beta on the Slitherine website.

The Impending 64-bit Apocalypse - Games That May Not Work in iOS 11

mbmbmbmbmb


With the release of iOS 10.3, it has become clear that apps that do not support 64-bit architecture will not work in iOS 11. That means many board games apps may go away if they are not updated. You can check which apps need updates on your iPhone or iPad.

We’ve already heard from Codito, Fantasy Flight Games, Ravensburger, and others that fixes are on the way, so this is definitely not a death sentence. The real casualties here will come from apps from one-off developers that may (understandably) not still be supported.

For the next few months, I’ll periodically update the below list. As we learn that an update will be coming, we will mark as such. Let me know if you have any updates or additions.

Games in Need of 64-bit Updates
6 Takes!
7 Wonders Companion

Games Still 32-bit but Update Coming
BattleLore Command
Codito Catalog
Eclipse
Elder Sign
Hey, That’s My Fish!
Scotland Yard

Note: This is not a witch hunt, just a public service announcement to make people aware of games that may be leaving soon if not updated. We’ve still got several months before the change, so the hope is most will move to the bottom list.
