This is how the press looks at Caf? International:

"AppZapp blog", Rating: 5 out of 5 - "Conclusion: the app completely

captures all the fun that the board game offered. It may be played

individually or 4 players may look for opportunities to place the

guests in the right spot." - 3 Plus, no Minus, AppZapp blog, 02.08.2012

"fun2tap.com", Rating: 4.5 out of 5 - "An award-winning board game is

a perfect recipe for a game app very much like a best-selling novel

being adapted to a motion picture. If you or your kids are into

puzzles and card games then this app is for you.", fun2tap.com, 26.11.2012

"midlife gamer", MLG Rating: 8/10 - "One of the great things about

Caf? International is whether you are a beginner learning the game or

a diehard fan wanting to experience a full on strategic challenge you

can tailor the game to suit your needs by changing not only the

difficulty of the AI opponent but also how many opponents you face. (.

..) By importing not only Cafe Internationals classic gameplay but

also adding single player elements into the mix, Application Systems

Heidelberg have released a well polished addition to the digital

board game genre which will be an excellent purchase for fans of

either strategy board games or for the quick fix of toilet gaming.",

midlifegamer.net, 22.08.2012

"AppTudes", Rating: 4 of 5 - "With great gameplay, clean Retina

presentation, and bonuses like single-player modes and Game Center

achievements, Cafe International is arguably better than its

cardboard counterpart - especially without having to clean up

afterward. A great addition to any family's digital board game

collection, or fans of strategy board games looking for something a

little lighter.", AppTudes, 13.08.2012

"MobileTechReview", - "Conclusion: Cafe International is a solid iOS

remake of a popular Euro Boardgame from the 1980s. Gameplay is easily

understood, but the strategy is deep, which should keep you coming

back to this one for a while. (...) Give yourself a few games to get

the hang of it." - MobileTechReview blog, 15.09.2012

Awarded by iphone.qualityindex.com as "Finest Game Publisher August

2012" based on great 9.2 average ratings for Caf? International.

"iPhoneLife Magazine", - "Solitaire for cafe addicts, with an offbeat

80s feel... That's my impression of Cafe International. Uh, how many

restaurants or shops are seating lone international guests

specifically by nationality or gender? None that I know of, but that

really isn't the point. The point of Cafe International is good old

pattern-matching fun with a multi-player twist that everyone can

enjoy.", Nate Adcock, 01.09.2012

"Geeks with Juniors", "As a board game geek, I always appreciate it

whenever a board game has been ported to iOS. That way, it's easier

for me to set up, find opponents and clean up afterwards. That said,

Cafe International for iOS is an excellent way to experience a

classic (and out of print) board game with friends and family." - ,

Geeks with Juniors, 01.08.2012

"iX - Heise Developer", "Why would I feature this game in my heise

developer blog? Caf? International is a very good game and one of the

best board game adaptions that I have ever seen on tablets. This is a

great example for app developers of board game adaptations: The first

positive aspect? is the faithfulness of the graphics to the original

board game look&feel. The game has no gimmicks or unnecessary 3D

effects. The computer opponents are neither totally stupid nor

invincible. My impression is that the developers of this game knew

the board game really well and that the motto of this port was

"quality above everything". Whoever adopts these rules and uses a

great board game as a foundation will succeed.", German review in

Kais bewegtes Web 09.08.12 - von Kai K?nig

"Stromstock", Rating: 4 of 5 - "After 25 years Caf? International

still is amazing - also for player who never played the board game

and make their first experience with the game on the iPad.",
