Fun, creative game with minor control glitches

I was really surprised how much gameplay they packed into this app. There are 20 total “chapters” with really engaging, colorful and lifelike graphics. Definitely has a 3D feel even though you’re only moving in 2 dimensions. New mechanics are added along the way, each one being pretty straightforward but as they combine there are some interesting puzzles. The controls aren’t 100% reliable, so get used to dying a lot, but it saves your progress often so you don’t have to backtrack much. Really glad I got this app!

Amazing game, get it now!

I downloaded this and then didn’t play it for a while. I finally got around to it, and then couldn’t put it down! I loved it! Great storyline, excellent puzzles, great game mechanics, creative, and beautiful to look at. The cut scenes are really well done. Five stars all the way. Once it a while the game winked out and I had to reload but it always brought me back to where I’d left off and not much progress was lost. Occasionally I got stuck but a quick internet search for walkthroughs always helped. I wish there were more games like this. Highly recommend.

Loved it!

I read the reviews pretty thoroughly prior to purchasing this game, and made the decision to give it a try. A lot of people said the controls were crappy and that the game crashed consistently.

Controls were fine once you got the hang of it...I played on an iPhone XS Max so maybe that’s why they worked well for me. A smaller device would probably pose some issues if you have abnormally large thumbs 😬

The game itself was done well graphically and the puzzles were not too difficult to where I would get frustrated. I loved how many levels there were, made for good game play for about a week on and off for me personally!

Only crashed a few times when I was trying to solve a puzzle the incorrect way...the character would get stuck and it would close out the app. Not a huge problem.

Overall awesome game and looking forward to seeing more from this developer. Thanks for the fun!!
