- Fixed a small issue in one chapter
Ratings and Reviews
Because Indiana Jones is one of my favorite movies. I looked forward to this game. Overall great game. Although, some puzzles didn’t really seem to have a connection to the game, so I had to cheat to move on to the next stage. Would have liked to solve it on my own. Other than that, good sounds and great aesthetics ; a fun game!
Not my favorite
I hesitate to be overly critical because I really love Haiku Games. This dev has one of the most fair systems on the App Store. The game is free there are no intrusive adds. He makes his money by providing hints. In the past I have always written glowing reviews. I cannot in good conscience non bring up a few issues. First off I encountered a bug when my battery charger literally disappeared from my inventory, forcing me to replay the chapter with the most annoying under water puzzle ever. Secondly many of the puzzles are rehashed from earlier games just in slightly different variations. Please dev on your next game do not rehash or give face lifts to puzzles that need to be retired. You are ready to take it next level. Do something fresh and more innovative. Overall it is a solid game worthy of playing.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. It's obvious you've played a lot of our games, and we'll definitely take into account your thoughts. For the battery puzzle, that's definitely a bug and we are waiting for Apple to approve our fix for it (it will be in version 1.22+). In terms of reusing puzzles, I thought I would give you our thoughts on that. We spend a lot of time designing and programming puzzles in each game. If we love the puzzle, it seems like a waste to use it just once. In addition, many players do not play all our games like you have. So on balance, we find it is a good idea to reuse puzzles (in hopefully a fresh, creative way) which we believe are fun in order to keep producing new games at a decent clip, as our players are always asking for more. Of course, if we are reusing puzzles you _don't_ think are fun, let us know and we will adapt!
Unplayable, at least for me
OK, I’m not the best player for games like this. I have to use walk-throughs for some of the more “random” or chaotic puzzles, but this game quickly became unplayable.
There is a challenge to shoot baskets, in the proper order.
I figured that part out, and quickly got to the last one.
At this point, the trick is to bounce the ball into the goal. (Shooting is done by timing when to choose the left-right position, and then the up-down position, from sliding pointers.)
Fine, except even when I knew where to shoot, I could never quite get the combination of positions for the ball to bounce into the goal. Rarely, the ball would bounce, but never successfully. There’s a huge amount of luck involved in getting the timing for this shot “just right”, and a small window of success, apparently. Anyway, to skip this challenge required more points than I had, and would have meant paying $$ just to get past this artificially-difficult task. Which makes the game unplayable, in my opinion.
I understand they want to make money, and if the game was as enjoyable as some other entries, I might have gone for it. As it is, I just deleted the game and chalked the time up to lessons learned. YMMV.
