Good but flawed
The game itself is great, but the app has some serious programming issues. As larger map fill up the game starts to freeze and the screen becomes intermittently unresponsive. Closing the app and reloading it doesn't help. My iPhone 5 has a difficult time with average size maps and large maps are unplayable. Even my 4th generation iPad has a difficult time running the larger maps. The game is a turned based board game that is not graphic intensive. It shouldn't take anywhere near as much processing power as it seems to draw. I could understand if it had a difficult time processing turns, but durning a turn when the game is static? It makes no sense! It's not like it's WORP! Other than these performance issues the game and app are great and would be five stars, But until then...yes Joshua, I would prefer a nice game of chess! Edit: after the 9/18/13 update the app has improved, but is still quite buggy. It's difficult for me to even type a message because every few keys the screen locks up. Once the performance issues have been fixed I will update my review to 5 stars! Also, if it helps give the developer the resources to fix the bugs, this is an app I would certainly be willing to pay for...even with ads.

1 star could be 5 star
Crashes all the time. Lags all the time. Other than that its good but the lag and crashing is way to often and completely ruins the game

Awesome game, Terrible App
I play this on my laptop, and it is the best Risk-style game that exists, giving players the option of playing against an AI or other people with straight to the point mechanics and a huge array of maps to play on. However, the app constantly crashes unless I play the built in missions, so for now I have to give it one star. I highly recommend that people who are interested try the browser-based version until this gets fixed.

Totally hooked
This is a great game and I play on all devices but it keeps crashing and lagging on my iPhone/iPad even when I'm on wi-if. Any way I can improve the performance?

Greatest unplayable game ever
IF the game didn't crash so much, lock-up, have problems with the touch interface and run so slowly it would be one of the BEST risk clones I have ever seen.

Crashes frequently
Unplayable because of the crashes. But I like it
