Catan Universe Review

Greater catan has a 24 max for victory point, why are you micromanaging us, the best part of the game is the end, why not let us set it to 30+?

We kind of wish the base game came for free because you only get one free single player game every 12 hours. On the other hand we understand money has to be made somehow and this game is very well done. The multiplayer runs very smoothly and there are plenty of game variations to keep things interesting and improve strategies.

Pls fix the lags esp wdisconnects.

Look, if youre playing bots, whatever resource you are on is only going to get rolled 50% of the time, even if you are only on 5-8. Far from normal distribution. Additionally, if you have the robber on your space, the dice is going to fall on that in the next 3 rolls. Plus the boys team up 3 on 1, even if you are drastically below in points. They will target you any which way.

We like playing this game, but we dont understand its inability to remember our device. Often we want to play when we dont have service, and Ill be logged out with no ability to log back in. Also if you guess your password wrong, it locks your account. This isnt the nuclear codes- its a silly game. Keep us logged in.

We love this game and for the most part this game is good. But there are bugs with placing settlements, freezing and the navigation of the app could use some help. Multiple times we havent been able to place a settlement when it should have been legal.

Tried to play the game, but it wouldnt let us at all. When we tried to change our name, it wont even go through, we try and actually play a match and all the buttons simply disappear. Overall, pretty buggy.

The game works like a charm! The only thing ridiculously annoying is the number of times a 7 is rolled. We get that it has a really high probability but come on!

It has happened to us several times that game ends and reloads in the middle. Does not say if someone won or left, no reason.

Why amI being matchmaked with 1 and 2 star karma people? We have 5 stars and we consistently get matched with people despite checking the option not to.

It kicks the game off before can even start, then says have to wait until the sun recharges to be able to restart a game. Bogus. Deleting now. Developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Before you buy be aware this app only lets you play 1 game every 12 hours. Even if you pay for the game and all expansions. You have to pay an additional couple dollars for each additional game. Got scammed pretty hard. We bought so we could play against computers while Im on long flights and was seriously disappointed after we spent $15 that we could only play 1 game on the plane.

The developers dont understand how statistics works. Apparently, its more likely to roll a 12 than an 8 in about every single game. Dont bother its this waste of time.

When you play against the AI at any level expect it to cheat. We started off with even numbers and all the roles for several rounds were odds. Additionally a seven often times gets rolled by the AI players much more often than for you. You play a knight and magically a seven is rolled and your blocked again. Why cant it play fair. Update – so fed up with it pulling out 7s just before Im about to play something or one of the AI players magically gets just what they need. We’ve removed the app. Have enjoyed the board game since there is no cheating there. Please developers, remove your code that pushes the AI players.

How hard can it be to fix this? Terrible.

While we can appreciate the amount of AI potentially going into it and everything else but its completely unacceptable for this game to be crashing sometimes every few seconds and an average of several times during one game. Fix it or remove it from the Apple store. As far as Im concerned until you fix the stability issue your game is junk.

The app keeps freezing at the rejoining the game phase so we can neither finish the game we were in nor start a new one. Completely unusable.

  • the other NPC opponents will almost never trade with you, dont keep trying. It wont work when you need it, not even once. – the rolls of the dice ARE NOT random. We’ve seen games where the robber was rolled seven times in a row, which is nearly impossible to see occur if the dice are rolling truly random, like they should be. This permeates every match every time and you notice it right away. – many modes wont load even thought youve paid for them. They just flat out dont work and you cannot play them.

We dont know what happened but we lost all our purchases / access to the base game and expansions we bought. Theres no option to restore purchases like most apps do. Very unfortunate!

You cannot build a settlement between two pieces of existing road. Fix this! Also your dice are rigged. Great game, crap programming.

This app is a joke. We spent 15 dollars to be able to edit the settings in custom games and play the expansions with friends but these money grubbers force everyone in the lobby to have purchased those items to be able to play using the premium settings THAT we PAID FOR. Not only that, but the dice distribution is laughable, and the game randomly adds win cons. Ie, the harbor master mechanic randomly being added to the base game. It was really great to lose due to an arbitrary rule modification to the standard game when we were a turn away from victory. What an absolute waste of time an money. Shame on your entire dev team for bringing this steaming load of trash to market.

We love the game, everything works great BUT THE DICE. For example, if someone put a rubber on your number, 95% chances the next time the dice is rolled it will be that number! If you get more than eight cards, most likely the 7 will be rolled. It is very very very frustrating just give us a random dice roll thats all.

The tutorial is about how to play Catan, not how to use the online game. The UI is not intuitive, so some instructions are needed, but they are not provided. Useless. We are uninstalling this game.

Rigged dice rolls – game will only roll spots owned by AI, AI will team up against you and only you – buying knight cards wont help move the robber off because in the next roll AI rolls 7. This game is unenjoyable and massively rigged for you to lose.

Ridiculous that they make you pay each time even for single player games.

Your purchase does not transfer to your other device. You will have to keep purchasing "suns" in-game microtransaction to play it.

Tried to sign up for an account and the registration email did not get sent to our email. Deleted.

Horrible game, trash reproduction and extremely inaccurate. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME.

Why do we need to look at another players pieces all the time and not ours? Move ours to the left for full view during game. Thank you.

Love it, fast queues and no adds.

We know this app isnt uodated nearly as often as it used to be. Yet, we think a fresh performance update as well as adding theyre newly updated Starfarers Edition would be great! Even its own dedicated application with updated graphics and UI would receive the attention it deserves. Show Klaus Teuber some love!

Im wanting to see support for the game encourage developers to make it better. Honestly, its really not great. Its good, but not great. One of the biggest gripes we have is the obviously outdated and poor user interface and and social components. It feels like a weaker community than it probably is because there arent really that many ways to interface with other users. Tournaments is a step in the right direction. Also seriously, those avatars is that a joke? Haha.

Hi, Im a long time player of catan and love the game. We recently started dating someone who is color blind and introduced him to the game. He is intrigued and wants keep to playing (hes a keeper!) but he has a really hard time telling the difference between the player colors and some of the resource tiles. Please include a high contrast mode to make the game accessible to more people. Thanks.

Need to practice before family/friend gatherings? We purchased this app. Havent lost a board game yet.

If only AI accepted but 1 trade!!


We play this all the times with friends and family, besides a few hiccups here and there its worked great!

One of the most exchanging, and infinitely fun games ever created.

If you like Catan, youll love this app!

To recharge but a wonderful free fun exciting game!!!!!!!

The only thing we suggest is to make the base game free to play then make the other games a little more expensive that way you can make the same amount of money while having more players try out catan. We really love this board game irl and they make it as much as enjoyable in this version. Oh yea! Make it so you can Que with friends into games.

Great way to enjoy Catan on the go.

Muy buen juego muy entretenido us gusta bastante.

Amazing Game! Very competitive and love the gameplay. Only issue is playing offline you must pay to play offline and thats frustrating. Us personally we like playing online and ranking up so its perfect for us. Its super easy to play with friends around the world! Definitely recommend playing:)

One of the most engaging and amazing strategic games we ever played!

This virtual set up is exactly like the physical board game. It is a lot of fun.
