Adventure game veteran here

This is one of the best I’ve played. Great story, really cool visual style, 3 dimensional characters, great music and voice acting. The controls work great on a mobile screen, the puzzles are quite intuitive, and the hint system is good.
The only reasons why you shouldn’t buy it rare if you don’t like point and click adventure games, or if you don’t like dark & violet content. Otherwise, buy it now! It’s great.

Really interesting

I really loved the story, this game keeps you riveted till the very end. I've never experienced much in the way of crashes. There's mystery, in-game puzzles and interesting characters to make up a great adventure game. The only thing I'm sad about is that the third and fourth games haven't been released on the ipad yet.

This is a REALLY GREAT game! I've played a lot of them and this is top 5 easy. Need a walkthrough tip every once in a while during the cognition feature but long play time, good story, and great value for the price!
