It looks and plays great but in the opening tutorial where the old man gives you the thunder spider tune after that the game glitches and can’t press nothing and no other options appear for the iPhone version why is that

Bug

I’m leaving this review in hope that this gets fixed, because I love this game and it used to work well for me, but since the last update the subtitles won’t play. They are there, but for some reason, they’re hidden behind the black bards that are on bottom of the screen, so during cutscenes they don’t show up (the same goes for the arrow at the top corner of the screen, it’s also hidden under the black bars).
I know they’re still there because when the cutscenes starts, I can briefly see them for a split-second before the black bar appears. I’m hard of hearing, so without the subtitles, I can’t play, which is a shame because I’ve been playing this game for a few years and other than this new issue, it’s always been a very enjoyable experience! If and when you fix this issue, I’ll change my rating accordingly. Thank you!
