Pan'orama has mega tiles in that you will get 1 group of tiles that are all connected in that turning one turns entire group, but they don't have to be visually connected - can be gaps. You have to find a spot on your map to put it in. Can be tricky later on as the shapes don't always play nice
Example of a Mega tile:
the white 2 shows how many points you get for placing the group, the 3 next to house icon is a mini quest.
No railway tiles. These act as restrictions in Dorf as you often get them at start of game and can be a nuisance to put somewhere they don't restrict other tile placement. Only tiles that can link to rails are other rails. putting a railway tile down can block 3 tiles
Dorf has 2 types of mini quests, ones where you just need X or more of a tile type, and another type which you can only have X of a certain type and if you go over you fail. So far I haven't seen 2nd type in Pan'orama, its more relaxed I think... its hard to tell, sometimes it doesn't react how I was expecting.
Similarities (apart from how game looks as that is obvious one)
Both have a creative mode in final game, meaning you don't have to care about points
Both have tiles that have miniquests attached to them - quests being attach X number of similar tiles to this one. So say 3 Forest tiles. You gain points for completion. The above mega tile shot includes a quest for 3 houses.
adjacencies give more points. The more similar tiles around the spot you putting a tile in, the more you can get. Max points I seen so far for 1 tile is 10
Points in Pan'orama are your way of getting Blueprints. Every 75 points you get a blueprint
which, as you can see, can add more tiles or improve others.
When you pick one, you get a shape something like
which can be placed over already built tiles if they match the required tile pattern, or just in a blank space if they don't. Above needs 3 houses and 1 field to create the local cafe.
It appears you also get 10 tiles just for picking a Blueprint.
