Suggestions for WP version

First off, I want to say that the game is great. I'm especially impressed by how the units are easy to distinguish, even on a small screen.

There is one thing that really bothers me, though. It takes way too long to return to my game. In principle, with a single-player turn-based game, we should be able to play a quick game whenever, wherever. However, currently it feels like I spend as much time waiting for the game to start as I do playing.

I would like to suggest two changes to streamline the process of starting a game.

My expectation of mobile games is that I can go away at any time, and that when I return to the game I find it exactly where I left it. Instead, with Skulls of the Shogun, first of all it took me a little while to notice there was an auto-save that I could reload. I had read the manual, but it doesn't mention this fact. So there's the first easy fix: change the in-game documentation so it tells the user about auto-save.

Second, 99.99% of the time I click on the "Skull of the Shogun" icon, what I want is to continue whatever game is in progress. So it would make sense to optimize for the common case, and directly reload the auto-save and put me there. If I wanted something else, I can always select "quit game" to return to the main menu and restart a different game or... well, there isn't much else I could do. Re-read the manual, perhaps.

Thanks for listening. I want the game to be successful, and perhaps others would like to chime in with other suggestions on how to make things better.
