    "From the board to the screen with no leaks on playability"

    If ever played board game "Settlers of Catan", you already know how addictive it is. Now the game came to Android keeping the essence of its original gameplay and rules. Bear in mind that this is the basic version of Settles of Catan, with no expansions packs. You can upgrade to the expansions packs buy purchasing them from the in-app store.

    From those who haven't ever played, on "Settlers of Catan" you embody one out of four settlers that has reached an island named Catan. Your purpose is to become the one who first rules the island. In order to achieve it you will have to earn 10 points of victory (or more, depending on the goal you set) before than your opponents do. You will get points of victory by different ways: building settlements and upgrading them to cities, collecting development cards, making large routes or using knight cards. The expansion packs add more variables. In your rise to the throne, you will have to collect different materials, trade with your opponents or internationally (with the bank), build roads, settles and cities. Do it strategically, and smartly, if you want to be the first on reaching the needed points of victory.

    Catan's Android version has been certainly well-crafted. It's been set in a cute layout and it's really easy to get the hang of it. You can play two different modes: "custom" which allows you to play against CPU or real players (up to 3 opponents) with the basic rules. You can choose among different characters. Each one of them have different skills. The "campaign mode" only can be played by upgrading to the Seafarers expansion pack from in-app purchase. There are more expansions packs though.

    Catan has been developed by USM, an emerging developing company who has also launched another great game "Ingenious".

    Catan FAQ:

    Question: Why do I have to download additional files after purchasing?
    Answer: The download from Google play includes the basic game data and a tool that will determine your device’s display resolution and then download the optimal graphics data for your device.

    Question: Which Android security permissions does Catan need and why?
    Answer: “Storage” to write data to the SD or move the game data, “Network communication” to download game data and access the In App Store and “system tools” to check if Catan is already running to resume a game.

    Question: I bought one of the expansions but after an update, reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone the expansion seems gone?
    Answer: Don’t worry; your initial purchase is already saved in your Google account. However for technical reasons you might have to select “Buy” again. Confirm and a message will tell you that you’ve already purchased it. You will NOT be billed twice!

    Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating from or when restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
    Answer: Savegames from old versions can usually be restored automatically. For all other cases we’ve integrated a cheat code: Enter campaign mode and go to select player. Enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15, e.g "CatanWarp5") as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button. Enter your phone’s settings menu. Select applications/manage applications/Catan/ and then “Force Stop”. Restart Catan. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number by selecting “New scenario *”.
