The game runs much more smoothly with the latest update but the layout makes it so hard to play that I find myself playing a lot less. In the prior version, you could play the game in portrait mode on an iPad mini and view your hand and the map at the same time. Why would you make the map and all components smaller and change the layout so if you view your hand, it covers part of the board? If anything, smaller components should give you more space so there is no overlap. The latest update also removed some of the highlights on quests you have the resources for when it is time to complete them. This last comment is really user based but why add more steps to a game? It seems like for every part of every move have to hit the green button. I know with the prior game you choose and then hit select but it seems like with this update you added an extra button or steps to ever move. And I mean move, not turn so in a turn there could but like 3 extra steps. This was a great and fun mobile version of game. The update literally killed the playability of the game. Add a revert please so I can play this game again

If you like worker placement games, this is one of my favorite. Each turn, you're trying to complete quests by accumulating units of various professions (and also money). Each player has a secret agenda, which changes what types of questions you'll prefer. There's considerable variety in how each game plays out, and the sounds and graphics add nicely to play. This isn't a D&D RPG. But it's very enjoyable. It's nice to have a game where you turn your mind on rather than off, on iOS. Edit: Minus one star for the update the switched to landscape. This took a 5-star game and worsened playability. In a strange way, it’s a little prettier. But I have a much harder time playing. They had (and no doubt in their codebase still HAVE) and perfectly good portrait-orientation UI. If they wanted to enable landscape, I wish they’d done it by giving is the OPTION which one to use. As I type this, the average rating is now 2.6. When I first reviewed it as a 5-star game, its average was quite a bit higher.

I’ve read the reviews that the UI update sucked. I will never know, b/c I just got this game in a sale & I never played the old UI. I also learned to play the game by doing tutorials. Game seems really strategic, lots of possibilities, skill seems to matter a lot, and the opponent can really throw a monkey wrench into your plan. This game is pretty awesome! I’d suggest to devs that they allow old players a toggle to switch back to portrait UI and cards visible (I might try it out myself), but the game seems perfectly playable with this UI. Sidenote: I had similar experience with Pathfinder — early player, loved it, was hammering on Quest Mode & loving it — and then dev’s removed Quest Mode & the players rebelled, essentially killing the ratings & loyalty of the players. While I think this is also still a great game using D&D IP, I don’t understand why dev’s would intentionally alienate their loyal players just to push gamers to do more IAPs (which they won’t bc of the hate). GAMEDEVS: LEARNING OPPORTUNITY!!!

I was so excited to see Lords of Waterdeep finally get updated. Then I opened it and tried playing a few rounds. I thought I was struggling because it was just new to me. But the more I played, the more I realized how terrible the new interface is. And I mean terrible to the point of taking all the wonderfulness that was LoW and making it not worth playing. At all. It was my go-to game for several years, playing almost every day. Now I don't even think about it. I was just about to delete it off my phone to make room for other stuff and thought I'll just give it another try. Terrible! Enough that I'm writing this review in a last ditch effort to beg the developers to either revert to the old interface, add a user preference to choose the interface, or at least give us users the option to download the old version. C'mon guys...the first step to healing is admitting a mistake was made. And you can read all the reviews to realize it's a huge mistake. I promise we're all very forgiving if you will just fix this!

Never heard of this game nor played it before the update. The reviews scared me off but gave it shot with the app sale. No regrets. Playing on mini iPad 4 and it is very much playable. Just went through the tutorial and no issues with reading cards. Granted can't compare to what people are complaining about before but so far so good. Recommend it! Update: So after playing a couple games I can see where people say you can't read all the cards. I'm guessing they mean the building cards if there's a lot at once. No problem as you can swipe and scroll them. Then double click to view it entirely. Not a big deal and nothing to prevent playing but it is a nuisance. Granted the playing field is limited and its mobile so what they have is probably as good as it gets.
