the new UI overhaul is horrible, please give us the old one back!
Bishoy Wassef on 2020-07-13
i am very sorry to have to leave such a horrible review for what was once an amazing app, even though it had its flaws before. the game was fun to play and easy to navigate. this is no longer the case let me start by telling you the things i like about this update, because i have a lot of negative feedback: the new setting that allows you to select random player goes first, or to choose the order. this is a great addition. now for the things i didn’t like: everything else. i wish there was a way to remove all the new animations, they’re horrendous, too flashy, and slow down gameplay. the “slam” effect when building new ships, roads, settlements, or cities or when moving the robber or pirate is unnecessary and unsightly. also, i don’t need the emojis taunting me every time an AI opponent builds something. really? emojis? come on people, you can do better than that. the new animation when the dice is rolled: (the tile glows and the resources are distributed to the players) is slow and gets in the way. the old way was much better- quick, easy to see who got what, but they weren’t in the way and certainly didn’t slow down the gameplay developers: did you actually fix anything that we care about? like the ridiculous dice rolls, or the online connection issues that affected our karma level when it wasn’t our fault, or the fact that the timer didn’t actually kick people out if they took too long? did you listen to any of our feedback whatsoever? please give us the option to revert back to the old user interface or at the very least turn off all these new animations. i’m very sorry to the developers who worked so hard on this UI overhaul, but i just really don’t like it. also, why was my previous review deleted?
Downgraded App
Learn&Earn on 2020-07-13
This app was downgraded. Like many other’s wrote, I have been playing the game very often. Now, it’s extremely frustrating. I can’t place settlements, cities or the robber, where I want to - it just drops wherever it wants since it’s tricky to figure out how to place things on the hexes. There was on major issue with the previous version that would drive me nuts, and it was not fixed, instead they made everything worse. The only main issue that needed fixing from a user interface point of view (leaving out dice roll statistics) was that if you accidentally tilted the game board, it would take actual luck to get the game board face up again so you can play. There was nothing to press to get it to straighten out. No one would ever want to view the game board on such a low tilt, with every hex blocked. That’s what should have been fixed, instead major new issues have been introduced. I am getting kicked out of games for the first time, since I can’t figure out how to accomplish what I am trying to do. And the time runs out. How did you mess up this bad? Please note: it is wiser to come out and acknowledge that this was no upgrade at all, and restore the previous version. See the reviews get this buggy mess away. Then you can go back and work on actual improvements. I got into a nice habit of playing in the evening to unwind. You messed that up for me. Please fix it. Update: I kinda figured out how to place things on the board. But... I played a game and it did not let me build settlements even though I had an open space and all resources. While it stopped me from building settlements, it let me build a city without first having a settlement. Please fix these issues.

Rating depends on the day
jiggy123456789 on 2020-07-13
Update: 6/30/20 - The new update is nice for phone users because of the zoom animations. However, the animations are a bit overdone. The worst part about this update is Catan no longer works on my iPad. The game crashes if I try to place a settlement or road during set-up. I restarted the iPad and reinstalled the app. No luck. 4 star game if I can actually play knights and cities on a screen that allows me to see the whole board at once. Please fix this. Update: 4/11/20 - Whatever “fixes” DSM has implemented have only made things worse. Lowered my review from 2 stars to 1. 75% of the games I start end up freezing so one or more players have to quit. I’d really like my money back or at least some CatanGold I can spend when this situation is fixed. I advise social distaning from this app for another 21 days. Original Review: I’ve had this game for two weeks and I absolutely love it when I can make it through a full game without any Catan Universe network issues. The reason for the two star review is because that’s the percentage of the time this app actually works. I hope USM awards some scrolls or gold to people who’ve had to endure this nonsense. A few of my scrolls were wasted as I tried in vain to play Knights and Cities...
Updated version has lots of bugs
Geodeezic on 2020-07-13
The older version had a few bugs, such as refusing trades even though it was clear that the opponent wanted to trade. I was hoping the new versiOn would solve some of these issues, but it has actually gotten worse! 1) the dice will throw and resources get taken off me for no apparent reason. 2) the game would not allow me to upgrade to a city even though I had the resources. Of course after several rounds the resources grew and the robber took them. Aren’t games suppose to be relaxing? That is the opposite of relaxing. 3) the updated game is continually zooming in and out with each activity, so in one persons turn it might zoom in and out three or four times. That is distracting. 4) this was a problem before as well, the board will tilt to an angle so you can’t put a road behind a building and you can’t un-tilt the board easily or sometimes you can’t un-tilt it at all. This used to be a fun game despite the small bugs, not anymore, today it was unplayable. Hope you fix it soon.
Love the game, hate the glitches
Jordan, the reviewer on 2020-07-13
I have been kicked out or forced to leave game after game because of glitches that freeze them. One out of every two games played would result in a match I could not finish. About a month ago, it seemed these kinks had mostly been worked out. Only one out of every seven or eight games ended because of freezes. It was great! However, the newest update has now made it worse than ever. I join a game, it brings me to the point where setup is processing and then the entire app crashes. I reset the app an it attempts to join me back with the game, but I never make it to the board. It crashes over and over, reducing my stars and stats to rubble. As someone who paid for the game and Seafarers expansion, I am really disappointed. I love the game itself and the graphics are solid. It would be nice if I could actually play it again.
V2.0 display is buggy
Pixelpshr on 2020-07-13
Before I start, a note to other players. Most of the animations can be turned off on the settings panel! If you don’t like it zooming in on each move (and I don’t like it either) go into the settings and turn it off! Now then... Trying out the new 2.0 release on my iPad Pro and find several problems. First, while in-game I checked the dice stats and found that I could only see the left 2/3s of the stats panel. (Incorrectly sized for the display.) Second, The same problem happens at the end of the game when looking at the game stats. Cannot see the numbers. Third, at the end of the game, cannot go back to look at the ending board layout.
Horrible new update
jfrann21 on 2020-07-13
This was my favorite game, would play it 5+ hours a day, me and my friends were extremely engaged in it. It had some bugs before but they were bearable. But this new update, made me regret the moment I decided to update it. I haven’t played since I updated it’s been a total mess. It the most horrible update the developer could’ve done. What did you actually fix? You basically just ruined the game. It is no fun to play anymore, it just lags so so much, the animation is horrible. I wish you’d give us the option to go back to the older version, cause some people actually spent money on this game.
2.0 is like Beta right now
Churchkeytwist on 2020-07-13
I’ve been playing this for a while now, and I have really enjoyed it. Nice features, normally smooth gameplay, and not too clunky to play on a phone with a normal screen. Before updating to 2.0, this was a five star game; afterwards it’s unplayable in multiplayer, single player games are limited by damned “suns”, and there’s the most disorienting zoom-in/zoom-out every time anybody places anything on the board. Give me back the old version! I wouldn’t buy this (and you do have to buy the real game) until they fix these issues or roll back to the last version. UNPLAYABLE AS IS.
Version 2.0 not working on my iPhone
Wonderk1nd on 2020-07-13
I have the latest update, and it force closes every time I go to start a new game. Not sure if this is just me or happening to others. Loved it before the update though. Just gotta did the dice, every time I get a lead playing AI, 7s get rolled constantly and my hexes are targeted. Whatever hex they put he robber on, that number gets rolled until the robber is gone, then stops getting rolled until the other players catch up. Gotta kick unresponsive players sooner too. But a great game, and a pretty great online version overall.
