Ratings and Reviews
I was enjoying this cute little game until I got to the fish and three bubbles. Not exactly relaxing! There appears to be no trick to make the bubbles behave, or to "nudge" them into line. After a day spent trying, I'm off to find a better use of my time.
UPDATE: I couldn't let it beat me, so I did go back and finally completed the task... but seriously, puzzles that leave you in limbo, require indefinite trial and error are frustrating rather than fun, esp. if you've already invested time into the game.
What I like about The Minums: A gentle story, real challenges to figure out and totally devoid of the usual testosterone fueled satanic villains, evil magicians and gore. Not all gamers are teenage boys.

Dear player, thank you for the feedback. You tap on the top three stalagmites and appear 3 bubbles.
When you tap a bubble, the bubble goes up and to the centre. You have to tap quickly all three bubbles a few times. They join together and become one big bubble that transfers the fish into the sea.
Hope to enjoy this time and reconsider your rating.
SLOW, Do not waste your money
If you have endless time to wait for dialogue bubbles to move onto the next one or if you are an extremely and I mean an extremely slow reader, then this is the game for you. However if you are like most people who enjoy actually playing a game then I recommend something that moves the dialogue along much more quickly. It looks like the game could be fun and interesting however I cannot waste a 1 minute pause to read a 1-5 word dialogue bubble. My guess is this was done to make the game seem longer. Sorry that’s all I have chucked it in the waste bin didn’t have time to waste.

Thank you for your comment. We have just updated the game (3.4 version) and includes a feature that you could fast forward the cinematics and the dialogues. So, you could play the same game for a shorter duration. This game is relaxing, smooth and emotional - that was our goal! Hope you enjoy the game this time.
I downloaded the universal edition and I am stuck in first chapter. I cleaned the pond and found corn. Also found the coffee and grew more. But I cannot figure out how to get water to make coffee. After I caught the fish, the bowl disappeared and I have nothing to gather water in. None of the walk through look at all like the version I got from the AppStore and I am ready to delete this game and ask for my $ back. It is not working right in my opinion.

There is a wooden cup on the coffee machine. You can take this cup and fill it with water from the pond. Please contact us directly if you need more help.
