    Dang, I kinda wish I had an iPad now. That and many hours of free time. I loved chilling and playing Civ 4 with my friends.

    Wonder if this means there is a Metal 2 build coming up for macOS

    People both want full games on the iPad and don’t want to pay full game prices for said games.

    I am shocked.

    This is nice but I would rather have their developers fixing Civ V so it will run under high sierra (10.13).

    I agree here. Who cares about the iPad for this game

    Exactly my thoughts. I am all OK for paying premium prices to get premium games instead of the usual stuff we get on iOS. But then I expect to be treated as a premium customers ... which involves supporting family sharing.

    Well because unlike mobile games, PC games offer a heck of a lot more be it from content, updates, controls, multiplayer, you name it

    I would add the team behind Dead Effect, as they are a tiny tiny team and Dea Effect 2 is one impressive feat, and I would add the devs behind Iron Marines as that’s a cool game.

    Wish they had cross platform compatibility with windows/Mac.

    Some games I prefer on an iPad but this would not be one of them.

    The description gives a very limited number of models that are supported. However, the App Store provides a much bigger list of supported devices, including my iPad mini 2. I downloaded it, and it appears to run. I only had a chance to play through a few turns (still at work here), and it seemed to run OK, but I have no idea how it will run in the later game. It also does give you a brief notification when you're starting a new game that "your device is not supported," but that didn't stop me from running it. I'll obviously really try to put it through its paces before spending any money on it, though.

    Hardware power in an iPad Mini 4 is basically the same as an iPad Air 2. So it should run fine on that. An older iPad Mini would likely have issues at some point if the devs’ recommended models are truly important. I have to assume it’s the amount of RAM that they’re basing the recommendations on.

    Very cool. A full desktop version for iPad. Will it be buggy and lag behind in updates etc? Of course. Still very cool.

    Tried civ6 for a few mins via iPad Pro 10.5

    Looks fun since p.c/MacBook Civ.

    Think I’ll have some short term fun with initial free turns -wasn’t expecting to be selected Chinese leader.
    Maybe the race choices are limited.

    It’s a 16 MONTH OLD game!!!!! If it was civ VII I could justify the price

    Side note: does this game support offline play?

    I downloaded it, seems to run fine, but I would have rather had them render text/UI at full res and just scale back the 3D graphics if they had to. The blurry looking text is a bit annoying.

    I think everyone gets the same trial leader.

    If anyone is looking for a good civilization game for their phone, I recommend checking out Through the Ages from CGE. Also runs great on the iPad, and it is just $10. It's a great streamlined civ-game.

    Good game but hardly ever support apps which require you to purchase within the app in order to unlock it.
