Catan HD

Catan HD



"Catan", the legendary strategy game provides gaming fun anytime, anywhere.

True to the original game, you can compete with up to four players for the most settlements, the longest roads and the largest army. You can trade with each other and claim the precious land with all its resources.

Challenge other Catan fans online via cross-platform multiplayer to prove your strategy skills or play against the AI:

Various computer opponents, each with their own individual characteristics, will prove themselves worthy competitors: the pirate Jean, who knows no compromise, Vincent the merchant, who never allows himself to be cheated, Sean the knight, who takes what is rightfully his...

The popular Catan expansions "Seafarers", "Cities and Knights" and two new special scenarios are available as In-App purchases.

The complete Seafarers expansion includes more than 10 additional scenarios with an extensive campaign. Become Harbormaster, discover new islands and extra game elements like ships, gold fields, treasures and pirates. Ahoy!

The Cities and Knights expansion introduces various new gameplay mechanics that add even more variety to Catan. Invest new trade goods in city improvements to build one of the three metropolises of Catan – but beware of the barbarians attracted by Catan’s new wealth! You’ll need your best knights to fend them off! C&K contains a short campaign and 7 challenging maps.

Exciting adventures await you in the two new scenarios "Enchanted Land" and "The Great Canal". Vanquish dragons and bag their treasures or build a canal to help barren grain fields bloom once more.

Catan FAQ:

Question: An expansion seems gone after an update or reinstallation of Catan or after restoring the device?

Answer: Don’t worry, your initial purchase is already saved in your iTunes account. You can restore your InApp purchases by selecting the restore-option in the Catan IAP menu.

Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating or restoring my device. Is there any way to restore it?

Answer: When saved games can’t be automatically restored, we’ve integrated a cheat code: In the campaign mode go to select player and enter "CatanWarp*" (* = 1–15) as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button and restart it. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number (1–15). Levels up to the specified number will be unlocked in the custom game mode as well.

Question: Are dice rolls really random?

Answer: Of course! All dice rolls are 100% random and not modified in any way. We’re avid Catan players ourselves. We’ve played the iOS version hundreds of times while developing the program. There have been times when we won and lost a few games in a row because of the dice - just like when playing the board game!

seafarers big disapointment

I love the Catan board game and was looking forward to the seafarers expansion on the iPad. Sadly, they did an awful job. First it's buggy. You need to sit through a pointless intro everytime you start the game. If you try to dismiss the intro, it crashes. This didn't happen before the update with the seafarers option. I have had the orginal iPad verison since it came out and it wasn't buggy at all. They then locked down all the seafarers levels and require you to play some stupid campaign mode to unlock them. It appears the developers of the game didn't understand that there are millions of seafarer fans that just want to play the game they love on the iPad. They don't want to do some lame campaign with a boring story which makes you play the orginal basic game before you play seafarers. If they fix the bugs and unlock the seafarer levels from the start it might be worth it. Until they do, don't bother buying the seafarers expansion.

Big Disappointment, still.

First...I love the board game Catan with all my heart. Excellent game. This game however is a big disappointment, even with the addition of the Seafarer's expansion. I would advise reading lots and lots of reviews before spending any money on this iPhone, iPod, or iPad version of the game. If you are an avid board game version player of the game, you will quickly realize how 'fixed' the game play can and WILL get the majority of the time. I don't care what anyone says...IT IS RIGGED. The way the dice roll against you and the way the AI Players' luck is, just doesn't happen NEARLY as often as it might during an actual board game against real people. But I guess that is what you get when you play against AI players, right? I want to love this game, but I find myself restarting it more times than I would like once the computer players take off with the game and maybe let you get a move in every 5th or 6th turn, because in the meantime their asking to trade resources with you that they shouldn't know you have, if you refuse they play a knight card and they steal it from you, or the friggin dice roll for them more than they roll for you. Arghh! I'm rambling. Just take my advice...read a bunch of reviews first before considering buying this game if you are an avid Catan fan, because this game will make your blood pressure go up as it is not consistent with how the game would play out during a board game version against friends.

Problems with the update

1. Often no matter how many points you choose to the play the game to in the settings, the computer ends the game at 10pts
2. Many times, even when you have far fewer points than the others, the computer will continuously put the robber on you. It doesn't make sense from any point of view
3. 50% of the time when the computer takes a card (even if you have 15), it will take the exact card you need for your next move

In short, the game is good but becomes abnormally challenging - not due to intelligent moves - but due to the feeling that it is actually rigged (like a casino slot machine).

I recommend staying away from the update...
