    Despite a few nitpicky critiques about little elements of the presentation, we really don't have a single bad thing to say about Puerto Rico.

    Staying pretty faithful to the original board game, Puerto Rico HD is just another example of how to adapt a game to the touchscreen and make it feel like it was designed with the iDevice in mind.

    What it may lack in bells and whistles it makes up for in terms of sheer playability.

    Puerto Rico HD is a good game at heart, but its unfriendly graphics and interface will leave newcomers out at sea.

    This is a faithful implementation of the highly rated original boardgame. You are in charge of a plantation in Puerto Rico and want to win the game by gaining as many victory points as possible. They are earned by selling and shipping goods or by obtaining buildings. The game is very deep and demands strategic and tactical decisions from the player. There is no one-fits-all strategy to "solve" it and the replay value is very high.

    The tutorial leads you through your first game and in-game advises are always available in case you wonder what to do next. While getting started is easy, mastering the game is not and you will lose a lot of games until you know what to do unless you already know the board-game.

    The last update provided better graphics and made the the game look better. Highly recommended if you like this kind of games!
