I tried the game once and it looks great. I liked the unit movement controls in form of a sliced disk. It's more convinient than tap and point and tap again of somebody else's version of FreeCiv that i tried.

Small problems i encountered so far:
- I can't see the current year on the screen.
- Some of the icons for the unit orders do not fit into the screen

I'm going to try it more later on
You did a great job! :D

Works great on the Xoom, cannot figure out how to set workers to auto or where the diplomacy is.

I tried your new version and I have a few remarks:

- I could build a Diplomat but could not use it. I got messages from other Civs but there was no way to respond to them. Is diplomacy implemented?
- In the city screen there is no list of buildings and wonders which have been built there.
- Scrolling up and down from the various lists (Nations to choose, City improvements to build, Advancements to research) is very slow and at times does not work from the first try.
- On a large map (20k) the game becomes extremely slow

I enjoyed playing it and the interface is really good and intuitive. Thank you very much! I appreciate your work :D

I'm currently working on diplomacy, so it will be available this week. I'm also going to improve scrolling performance.

Here are some more notes from your game tester:

- There is an icon for building a railroad but when i tap on it nothing happens so i can't build railroads. Seems like a bug.

- There is no icon for cleaning up pollution or it's not seen on the screen.

- The game becomes slower and slower with the time. But if i restart the phone it regains its normal speed. Could be a memory leak?

Respect 4 all the hard word. I have the same problems as above

- diplomat not working
- railroad button doesn't work
- not able to view city buildings

I've played civ since i was a kid but it's been a while, so i totally forgot about the what to reseach and wich worldwonder to built first. A kind of help function on those would be very welcome!

keep up the good work (it still is amazing i'm playing civ, warcraftII, heroes2 on a phone)
