Wingspan: The Board Game App User Reviews & Comments
ExcellentI am a big fan of the board game and this does a lovely job of recreating it digitally as well as add some nice touches like add bird sounds and nice music. Great game if you have played the board game or not. You get to play a game and learn about birds!.Version: 1.1.158
Achievements issuesWingspan is my favorite table game and I love that I can now play a game whenever I want! This version of the game is great but there are some annoying bugs that should addressed. In the achievements menu there is no way to click on the achievement and read the entire description. Also, I have knocked out several of the goals without the game activating the achievement..Version: 1.1.176
A lot more fun than the board versionThe app does not always give me the actions on my bird cards, food from bird feeder and eggs on cards.Version: 1.1.176
Fantastic!!!!!This is so well done! And a great example for how mobile board games should be designed! AI is intelligent and interface is beautiful. Only feedback is that text is pretty tiny. Other than that, this is a home run. Hope to see the expansions!!! 😁.Version: 1.1.152
Interface issues and bugs.I play this on a variety of platforms and there are still interface issues and bugs in this version. On iPad Pro 10.5 “ bottom of the screen is cut off, so you can’t see powers. Random bugs where elements of the game are missing, usually the back function, sometimes the confirm function that require a restart because they are game breaking..Version: 1.1.158
Still has bugs to work outThe steam version is pretty good at this point but I feel they launched to iOS before this app was fully ready - achievements notifications pop up for every turn after you’ve completed one - I had one game where after I took the gain food action, there was no forward arrow to proceed. I had to quit the app and relaunch - app does not rotate to whichever side you’re using as landscape… so it’s not compatible with my iPad case which defaults to laying the iPad on its right side in landscape mode. I hope they fix these things soon!.Version: 1.1.158
Good game, Bad tutorialI’ve never played the board game, and this was my first experience. I would give the actual game 5 stars for the gameplay and interface. I would give the tutorial 1 star as it left me more confused afterwards. I had to go to YouTube and learn how to play there before coming back to the game..Version: 1.1.176
Great adaptationI’m really happy the developers decided to bring this to iOS! Some things I’ve noticed though: 1. When I click to go back to the menu after a game is over, the screen now freezes (when doing a round with the Automa at least) 2. When the Automa takes cards, all the cards he keeps “fly away” toward the forest area after the first few turns instead of staying next to the discard pile 3. For some reason, you can’t go into the online mode without signing into Game Center These are just some small annoyances, but it’s still a great game and looking forward to the expansions!.Version: 1.1.175
Very good!The game is a great adaptation of the board game. Easy to play and always a pleasure. Two bugs: first after completing a game vs. automa the score tallies up and you have a choice to go back to menu or replay etc. After clicking a choice the app just locks up and I have to force close it and restart. Second I believe there is an error with the Photographer bonus card which gives points for birds with colors in their names. However, when I played the “Black-chinned Hummingbird” the count of birds triggering that card did not change. I believe it should since it contains the name of a color and there is a similarly named bird, “Black-billed Magpie”, that does trigger the bonus card. These are the only things I can see keeping it from a full five stars..Version: 1.1.175
Love!I love this game! So glad I can play it on my phone now!.Version: 1.1.158
Good game!I love this game and was psyched to hear that an iOS version was coming out. I bought it to play on my iPad but apparently I need iOS 13 to run this on my iPad and my iPad runs iOS 12.5. I downloaded it to my iPhone and have a few suggestions and criticisms. The font for the game I know is staying true to the game, but it is very faint and hard to read on an iPhone. I would suggest increase font size slightly or print it in bold. Black text would be best instead of the brown text. You can’t zoom in in this app, so the games that I played I kept having to take it screenshot, go look at the screenshot where I could zoom in on the image to find out what I needed then go back to the game. It was quite frustrating. I ended up finding the game available for the Switch and bought it. Since I can’t play this on my iPad which was my original intention, I probably won’t play the iOS version again. It was too frustrating trying to read it on my iPhone and having to take screenshots. Overall though, good implementation of the game..Version: 1.1.175
Very buggy stillAlthough lots of bugs seems like it should be a good thing for birds, it’s bad for users. I can’t even enter my name in the online play, and the dialog is impossible to dismiss..Version: 1.1.158
I love this gameIt’s very soothing and peaceful, yet still has complexity and engine building. it’s an all time great..Version: 1.1.158
AmazingThis is a review of single player only… This port of a great board game is everything you want in an app - faithful rules implemented correctly, a decent AI, wonderful art and sound, and an easy to understand interface. I’ve played a lot of app versions of tabletop games and this one blows the rest out of the water. Well worth the wait..Version: 1.1.175
Excellent portGreat game and port of the board game. Downsides, screen needs orientation fix so don’t have to play with tablet held in only one orientation. Please add expansions soon, don’t know why they weren’t added as a purchase option from the start..Version: 1.1.158
Very good adaptation!I bought this to try out Wingspan, and the tutorial was quite helpful. I only felt the explanation about the food and when it’s re-rolled wasn’t quite clear. The gameplay runs smoothly. It looks and sounds great—and every time you tap a bird card, the bird’s call will be played! Very cool detail. I’ve played four games on this app, and I’ve only noticed one bug—but it was quickly fixed when I saw there was an update waiting..Version: 1.1.176
Love this game!!I love this game and I’m so happy I can now play it on my phone anytime. 2 things I would change are: the ability to see your 2 bonus cards when choosing which birds/foods you want to start with…..and I wish you could enlarge the birds so you could see the nest type and powers better. Other than that I highly recommend this game..Version: 1.1.158
Excellent adaptationThis is an amazing adaptation of what is already a great board game. The mobile version has great controls and plays very intuitively. If you are a fan of board games, or like strategy games or just like fun games in general, this is a must have in your collection!.Version: 1.1.158
Perfect board game for iOSChess and the original Carcassonne for iOS are the only apps that come close to how awesome this game is. I’ve been a fan of the board game and the PC version for some time and I couldn’t think of a more aptly suited title to make its way iOS. The frame rate seems to be a little slower on an iPad Pro vs my iPhone X, but the game plays wonderfully regardless. I’m sure they can tweak performance just a bit in future updates. Perfect game for all reading ages+ I love the bird sounds and bird facts.Version: 1.1.158
Bugs Fixed, Great GameI was able to play through the tutorial, but now, playing against an easy computer opponent, the app crashes after every turn the computer takes. I’m on an iPad 2017. EDIT: The bug has disappeared! This is a great game. I haven’t played much of it with the physical game, but I really appreciate how quick the set up and everything is with the digital version. I’m rather enjoying it!.Version: 1.1.176
Like it but needs improvement.After this most recent update I can no longer save or simply exit a custom game once it ends. I have to force close the app in order to play a new game. Also when you have too many cards in hand it becomes very difficult to look through them all. Perhaps a feature should be added that when you are looking through your cards they all pop up and you can swipe through them. Overall still enjoy the game but could use some more adjustments/fixes..Version: 1.1.175
GlitchStill can’t play Black-Necked Stilt.Version: 1.1.158
One little thing.They have done a really great job with this game. So glad they made it so it can turn with your screen now. The only thing I wish it did now was let you chat with the people you are playing online. That would be the icing on the cake!.Version: 1.1.176
Awesome!I love it! Could you please add a feature that allows us to annotate saved games? That would really help, thanks!.Version: 1.1.176
Lighter game, but deep strategyI love this game. There are some bugs but, I assume they will be fixed soon since the game has only been out a week. It would be nice to be able to see how many cards your opponents have, and to be able to cycle through your own cards easily when you have a big hand. Also it would be cool if the game alerted you when you play a new bird for the first time, to give it that bird collector feel..Version: 1.1.176
+DLCAdd other DLC。THANK U😄.Version: 1.1.175
Locks UpOn my first game, it wouldn’t let me play even my first bird. I had to get out of that game and start a new one. On the next game, I got three birds played when it suddenly stopped letting me get food. I paid $9.99 for this! I just did the update and it didn’t help. After I play a bird, it’s still my turn and I can’t do anything else. This works on the switch, but it’s not working on my phone. I want my money back!!!.Version: 1.1.176
SuggestionLove Wingspan! It’s one of my favorite games and I’m so excited it’s on iOS now! I just have one thing that would make it better. Being able to create a friends list so it remembers who you’ve played with prior, so you don’t have to remember usernames every time you want to play a match. Everything else is wonderful, and I’m thrilled. Just adding something for friends so online play could be more streamlined would be perfect!.Version: 1.1.176
ConflictedI’m conflicted, and thus rating three stars because while the game is beautiful, the illustrations on the cards, the habitats, even the menus, I feel like the tutorial is a bit rushed for the density of gameplay. I believe that the games I’ve lost thus far (4 out of 4 played in addition to the tutorial game) were lost partly to just rng luck which happens in any good card or board game, but I think on the other side it was because I didn’t have a handle on the rules because the tutorial walked me to the door and then left. While I don’t expect a hand holding clicker by clicker experience, a more detailed description of the game might suffice for the extra two stars. I hope the developers will consider these requests but otherwise amazing attractive game!!!!.Version: 1.1.158
Can’t play on iPadI was really excited about this and while the interface is very appealing, it doesn’t fit on my iPad screen. I thought I was losing my mind because I couldn’t find the green arrow just to go back in the tutorial and realize it’s not shown on my screen. Really frustrating experience..Version: 1.1.176

LimitedLove this board game but have only played it about 10 times and can no longer go to the next move as the bottom right arrow has disappeared. Very disappointed..Version: 1.1.176
Great GameThis is a beautiful game and fun to play however it glitches at the end of each game not able to go back to the main menu. The only buttons that works are the review and details buttons. Other than that it’s so much fun to play..Version: 1.1.175
