I keep getting soft locks in single player campaign. The game stops on an ai turn and won't continue, and start over doesn't even work. When it does work new game mechanics seem to have no explanation available. I eventually figured out how peril worked, but I couldn't find it in the help. But I see a lot of potential once the bugs are ironed out.
Unfortunately I cannot finish the first game of my campaign as the game crashed mid game. I fully rebooted my iPad thinking this would correct any issue but now the game loading screen is stuck at 0%. Would like to give this review more stars but can’t recommend until this bug is corrected.
Deleting until notifications work right. Don’t let this be another Terraforming Mars.
This needed to spend more time in testing. It lags horribly and force closes when you pick your first persona when you can pick two. Repeatedly crashes and now game is stuck. Wish I had waited. Freezes mid game and you need to save close and reopen. Has potential but I didn't know Apple had an early Access program like Steam. Update - complete game breaking bug in the final game. Play through 12 games only to find the potion maker card is broken. The AI player can use it every turn making 3 VP per turn on a single use card. Even better it locks everyone's cards until the next income butt since he can use it every turn if you are after him in turn order you are just screwed. Complete game breaking and now I wasted hours trying to finish a campaign only to have it finish with a broken Aim winning the final game. Nice job. I want my money back. Next time you want to beta test a game do it through test flight.
Advancement pile and mat are empty and it wants me to choose a card (another player triggered a robot in my charter) and won’t let me finish my turn until I pick a card, which I can’t. iPad version now makes it to 100% instead of hanging at 1%, but then crashes. Love this game and look forward to it being polished more. Great music and animation.
I can’t play more than 5 minutes on iPad mini without the game crashing. It wouldn’t load at all until the recent update. It works not but still has major bugs to work out. When it does work it’s fun, but right now can’t even finish the first game.
Overall, great. Charterstone is a fun game and it can be hard to get real people together for a legacy campaign (especially now). The game is good but has a few faults. It can be hard to see exactly what buildings do (you can view from individual charters but this doesn’t seem intuitive). Also, game continually crashes at start of game 9 when I try to choose Coach persona (I am grey charter if this matters).
If you’re a new player you’re going to need to watch some videos. There’s a pastiche tutorial that explains how to use various functions, but no guide for why you might do it, any sense of strategy or any easy way to go back without just reading the rules.
Great game thanks for bringing this digital as I loved the board game!! You have also been fast to respond on FB to what’s going on and getting bugs fixed!! Thank you!!!
Pretty much unplayable.
