 - Catan, USM, Stretgy Board Game, Conquer, Carcassone

After the success of Carcassone on the iPhone, a game we scored highly, it was surely only a matter of time until other developers followed suit and started releasing other popular strategy board games on Apple's touch-screen devices. Well not before time, USM has released Catan for the iPhone, and Catan HD for the iPad.

"Catan uses a game board composed of 19 randomly arranged hexagonal tiles, each representing a different type of terrain or resource. Through strategy, luck, and skillful negotiation, 3 or 4 players vie to be the first to earn 10 victory points. This is done through building and enlarging settlements, by establishing the largest army, by building the longest road, or through the use of certain development cards." (Thanks Wikipedia)

So far the reception has been lukewarm with people criticising the poor graphics, slow and jerky animation and lack of multiplayer options - no bluetooth or online multiplayer apparently.

However, if you're a big fan of the game and want to be able to play it on the move, then surely this is your best option?
