Editors’ Choice

Plenty of games cast you as an outgoing hero, exploring the wilds with sword in hand - but nobody does it quite like Superbrothers. Stunning art, a haunting soundtrack and poetic storytelling combine to create a magical, mythical mystery that stays with you long after you put it down.

Amazing game with just one noticeable bug

This game is a must play, hands down. Simply magical.

To the developers: don’t know if it’s an iPhone 6 bug or an iOS 11 bug, but sometimes coming out of a battle, the game gets stuck in a state where it thinks that one finger is pressed continuously on the screen in the lower corner. As a result, you become unable to move your character or get out of that state. Only force quitting the app and starting over resolves the issue. Obviously, HW is iPhone 6 and SW is iOS 11.1.2.

Very problematic

The game does not allow simple things like resting or collecting a mushroom when faced with the the first boss. There is no way to use the shield either. And no way to restore a saved game to drop me in front of this challenge. When reading the instructions it tells you how what to do to beat the boss but the avatar doesn't respond as instructed. So very frustrating. And can't collect more than three mushrooms?!? Come on! I don't want to start OVER again and again because my avatar can't rest or let me walk back to the cottage with seating and a hearth. If it doesn't work as described or instructed I will just give up on the game and warn others that it is even not worth 3.99. Why do mobile game versions come out glitchy...always glitchy and stupid. To bad because the world is becoming mobile..laptops may be obsolete soon. The game has potential but not when there are no options to get un stuck. The game settings also don't work. Tried to go there several times but only get a quick blue banner that disappears as quickly as it appears for a fraction of a second. As I said...very glitchy and unreliable.
