I have only played on the ipad, so that may provide better graphics and gameplay than on phones. The navigation is pretty intuitive to pick up. It's nice to be able to play and wander the beautiful game environment without people shooting at you. It's competitive enough to keep you engaged if you can self regulate (I.e. you don't need to see and compete with other people's scores). Some of the characters and dialog are hokey, but they are not terribly intrusive, so I ignored that.
