'Good game, not buggy but needs a visual upgrade'

'As much as I wanna say the dice are rigged, it\'s a good game that works. I haven\'t encountered any major bugs and the dice
issue is fixed.\n\nThe main problem I have with it is that it looks ugly. I\'m not really expecting fancy graphics and animations
but it would be nice to get a visual upgrade

'Love it. Difficult. Great adaptation of the board

'I have always loved the board game Hostage Negotiator and have purchased all of the content for my game table. I feel this app
has captured the game extremely well and I love playing.'

'Darkly themed fun'

'The game is very frustrating, to be sure, but very compelling and original. An interesting strongly themed dice rolling card
game with light deck building. I really appreciate how the game\'s handy advisor doesn\'t simply suggest moves but fully explains
its reasoning in most cases.'

'One of the best games in cardboard goes digital!'

'This legitimately on of the greatest solo games ever designed for tabletop and they’ve done a tremendous job getting the app to
match the experience on the table.'

'cards too small for iPhone and iPad mini'

'Although there are some good UI decisions (the drag and drop works well), cards are impossible to read zoomed-out, difficult to
read zoomed-in.\n\nSome possibilities for zoomed-out:\n- no flavor text\n- title only\n- title with brief icon reminders \n-
remove \"face\" on card because these are all

'The dice ruin the game'

'The game is great, or would be. The 3D dice consistently hit the sides of the screen so don’t roll many times. The physics on
them is a little off and sometimes they seem to slide as much as roll. They get hung up on each other, too, and when they don’t
lie flat (corner or side propped up) it

'Good start, looking forward to improvements'

'I have the physical game with all expansions. This is a great way to enjoy the game \"on the fly\" during my commute, waiting for
meetings, etc...\n\nLike most all new apps, it needs a little polish. \n\nThe recent update (hopefully) fixed the irritating issue
found in other games with 3D dice roll

'It\'s okay'

'The game itself is pretty good, but it\'s luck heavy dependent on dice rolls. \n\nThe app looks a little dated. When you roll the
dice, the dice move really slow. Also, if the dice roll onto a corner, it\'s automatically considered a failed roll. They should
be rerolled because it pushes the alread
