Pretty Good

Having played most all escape games, I love finding new ones that are well done. This game is a great mix: decent level of difficulty, layered puzzles, decent gameplay. If I had to suggest a few things… An option to reverse the drag direction: on most devices, you pull towards an object, not push to them. And option to pinch back out instead of the back button. And an option not to automatically catalog clues - this takes the fun out of figuring things out. But nice work, I enjoyed it.

I really really wanted to love this, because I’ve very much enjoyed MediaCity’s other adventure games. Unfortunately I can’t handle the smooth-scrolling graphics with the contrary swipe action. It makes me nauseous after a few minutes’ play. Just now I tried playing the game again after a break of several months, hoping that the effect wasn’t as bad as I’d remembered. Alas, after a few seconds I knew I couldn’t continue. Two stars, to catch the attention of the developers. Please, I beg you, give us an option to set the swipe action to normal. That should have been the default in the first place. I have no problem with the smooth scrolling in the Room series, for example. I’ll give a positive update once I can actually play the game. I imagine that you’ve worked very hard to make a beautiful game. I don’t understand why you haven’t quickly responded to all the requests to give an option reverse the swipe action, because why you would want to prevent a substantial number of your fans from playing the game? Here’s the thing: if you don’t suffer from motion sickness, then you’ll have no idea at all what we are complaining about. The only way you’ll know is if you listen to what we are telling you about our playing experience.

Hi britCA yo did catch our attention and I promise we will add a reverse swipe option in an update, we are a small team and sometimes we need to focus on the next installment and tend to forget that we also must improve the already released games, but we are aware that this kind of interaction isn’t comfortable to all players and we are also considering using fixed camera angles as new locomotion system in the upcoming games (similar to agent A and our previous 2D games) we will do our best to make this change as soon as posible. Thanks for the patience.

Irritating to play!!!

I am a very easy person to please when it comes to playing, and enjoying, an intriguing game. But “enjoy” is the key word!!!
The premise and concept are engaging. But the gameplay is buggy and very irritating. My first time playing I had to restart because I got locked into a scene and couldn’t back out. Graphics seem to blend into each other occasionally. Maneuvering the 360 screen is way too sensitive. On the flip side, things like changing letters on the cryptic are painfully slow. And if you miss a letter I can’t reverse it. I must go all thru the alphabet.
As for ease of play, the game is overly complex, even for an escape game. And the hints are really too cryptic to make playing more enjoyable. I don’t want to be stressed by a game. $1.99 is not much for a game. But it’s a lot when I just want the game to end so I get my money’s worth!!!
I respect the efforts of a small development team and want to support them. And I have enjoyed their other static graphic P.A.C games. So I know they can do better.
