Great classic point and click adventure!

Great game, reminiscent of the great LucasArts and Sierra games of the 90s. The puzzles were a little easy, but I enjoyed how quickly the story advanced. And this game is not too short for the money. Actually it's a bargain... $.99! Anybody who says otherwise has no idea what goes into making a game like this. The story was cohesive, the dialogue was interesting and original, the artwork was unique and inspiring, and the sound design was on-point. People pay more for a soda they drink in 5 minutes than this amazingly designed and produced game by an indie studio that probably spent many a late night poring over this thing. Brilliant! Well done. I can't wait for the next episode.

Hilarious, creative, wonderful point and click game

This is the definition of point and click adventure games. I’ve been playing point and click games since I was about 9. I’m 23 now, and have played many p&c games both on PC and iPhone. this one is definitely in my top 5. The artwork, the creativity, the voices, the storyline, the hilarious and witty commentary... it’s all awesome. I’d be more than willing to pay again for another installment! I’ve played the first and second game already and am currently replaying the first. The only and I mean only issue I faced with this game was a glitch that unfortunately sent me back to the start of the game because I could not get past it. However, I enjoyed this game so much that I didn’t mind playing it again to continue the gameplay from where I got stuck. Other than that... Great job to the developers in every single way!!! I’m hoping for a 3rd game :)

Reminds me of the fantastic Hector Badge of Carnage Series

It' not as funny, as raunchy, or as tough as Hector (oh how I wish that series would come back), but this is still a very fun and entertaining romp. It is a bit short but still enjoyable

The bumbling Fiddle and his quirky companions make this worth the price. Very much looking forward to episode 2.
