Super Fun until the Ballcourt

I was immensely enjoying this game until the ballcourt. Playing on an iPhone is quite difficult, as where you need to stop the arrow is sometimes right on the white line to move between apps. It is also quite difficult to stop the arrows with your fingers on a phone, and I have small fingers and hands. My guess is this is meant to be played on an iPad or tablet, based on this and a few other scenes where things were difficult to see at the bottom of the screen on my phone. Overall well done and very fun to this point in the game. Just not sure I will finish now because it is too frustrating to know what I need to do but not be able to do it due to placement.

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!

No WiFi Game

This game plays like a escape game, but it has a plot with cutscenes (hence, Adventure Escape).
Many of the puzzles can be solved with ease, but the developers leave enough difficult puzzles for you to try and figure out (the hard puzzles are usually at the end of a chapter).
You can find and collect stars to use as currency for answers, but try not to use them unless it is necessary.
The best part (of course) is you do not need any WiFi to play this game.
Haiku Games craft their apps rather well. No disappointments so far.
