Ratings and Reviews
Great game, but...
Don't get me wrong. I love this game. It's one of the best adventure games I've ever played. If you're even remotely interested in the genre, by all means get this game. It's well worth the $2.99 they're asking for. The puzzles are clever, the story is great, and the humor had me laughing really hard. The control is excellent, but it takes a while to get used to. It hits the perfect balance between King's Quest and Monkey Island. The former where it's so easy to lock yourself out and die, and the latter where you can do neither. In Steel Sky, you can die, but you will never reach a point where you can't complete it. Thank you! I really want to give it five stars, but there are a few problems that hold it back.
On a few occasions, I have touched somewhere on the screen at the wrong time, and it has locked up my game. Basically, whenever you perform an action, the icons disappear momentarily. If you perform the wrong action at a specific time, the icons will stay gone. I fund myself waiting for my iPod to close the application, forcing me to *gasp!* do something productive. If the next version fixes this, I would be so happy. I hate productivity.
Good PnC for iPhone
I’ve played many a point and click throughout my time and this one was pretty good. I was going to play it on PC but why not play it on sleepless nights in bed. Good story, good humor, creative world, and a hint system for the not so obvious steps thankfully bc the maps can be on the larger side sometimes. Id say it’s worth the price if you like games like Whispers of a Machine or Unavowed, this seems like a solid predecessor. Gonna try out the Apple Arcade version of this series next.
Controls are horrible
This could be a fun game but the controls are glitchy and inconsistent. Takes all the fun out. At least they are on Apple
