Could You Succeed As A Master Builder? Alhambra Hopes To Find Out
One recent addition to the App Store, Alhambra Game, sends iDevice users back to the 13th century and charges them with the task of constructing the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. Available in the App Store for $4.99 and optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (though the game is perhaps best suited to the larger screens of Apple's iPads), Alhambra Game is actually a port of an original title called Alhambra, winner of the 2003 Spiel des Jahres - "Game of the Year" - award in Germany.

Employ the most suitable teams of Builders and make sure that you always have enough of the right currency. Because no matter whether they are stonemasons from the north or horticulturists from the south - they all want a proper wage and insist on their "native" currency.On offer, then, is a solo campaign mode in which gamers can play against the computer across four different difficulty levels. Alhambra Game also allows users to play against friends locally, using the same iDevice, or online against other gamers. Even if you're not familiar with the original, Queen Games promises that its easy-to-understand tutorial will help fully explain the rules of the game.
