Ratings and Reviews
Brief but beautiful
The graphics are great, utterly fantastic. I had to use a walkthrough here or there — and one of them was partially wrong. A Latin “X” means 10 not 5 (so just keep that in mind if you are confused). Some of it was not intuitive— I figured if I have the tool it would use it without prompting, but instead you have to drag it down. And once I didn’t click the button so it counted that as not solved. A hint prompt option would be great, some of us are perhaps less talented at solving puzzles than others.
Kinda Torn, Mostly Disappointed. I hope the developers read this.
So I watched your video on how the idea began as a dream and now with the new city version, looks really cool and a great idea. Love the art style, I wanted to try the Free Lume version to see if it was a good match for me and it began pretty good. More simple that I had hoped but enjoyable and made me think. I watched a video and it made me realize how much I had missed just getting to the “power box”. The door lock was easy, I watched a video of how to do the power box and decided that it was more complex that my brain allows. I did not understand it at all, so with my disappointment I will not be buying the city version because I probably won’t be able to figure it out. But I wanted to wish your team all the luck and success because I love your style. Thanks, Sorry, Disappointed and Good Luck.
Appreciation for the Work
The people giving this app fewer stars due to the price are obviously not aware of the amount of effort that was put into developing such a revolutionary game. Paying the price of a McDonald's happy meal to experience such a satisfying, though short, gameplay is definitely worth it if you want to support these artists. It makes me upset that people think the length it takes you to beat a game should be directly related to the price! Ridiculous. If you truly value the work of artists, it shouldn't be a problem to pay the amount of spare change you can find underneath your couch cushions.
