A true work of art and a testament to the untapped potential of the Apple Watch. This game delivers in every department best it can with the limited hardware. That being said, I am going to be critical of the game. For reference, I currently have an Apple Watch series 2.
For one, there are many bugs. I’m not going to name any of them as they’ve basically all already been mentioned to the devs, but it’s definitely something to consider. Furthermore, in the newest update, there really was no point in giving it an iOS app that does absolutely nothing. Judging by the responses, the devs may just be using it as a framework for an iPhone port, but I’m not a game developer, I wouldn’t know. Lastly, the largest issue I’ve had is the loading screens take AGES to finish, all things considered. This becomes a bit of a problem as your arm inevitably starts to ache.
In conclusion, amazing game. Needs some quirks ironed out, but by far the biggest problem I have with the game is the lack of an iPhone version. Playing the game on the watch works fine, but aside from the fact that your arm starts to hurt after some time, it would just be more fun to play it on a wider screen. Other than that, the game truly is phenomenal. This may be a sign of things to come for the piece of wearable tech. I cannot recommend this game enough; if you have a couple dollars to spare, and I cannot stress this enough, BUY IT. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
The Best Watch Game
So far the best Apple Watch game with some ambitious goals! How they made this is a testament to some new well thought out game design and ingenuity, it’s fairly well made and a great concept, but has some small issues! The level design and player movement can be wonky at first (if the devs could add a simple bezier curve to slow down the player movement speed slightly before reaching a wall or obstacle, I think it would help), other than that some things are stylistically designed a little weird (looks like the art team didn’t work together to make certain assets fit the same general style), from a garish title screen, to a weird 3rd person board game-style map progression system with icons and art assets that don't match the games theme that well, then there is awkward lighting and a strange amount of specularity on the character model.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the detailed review and useful suggestions! Taking notes to use in the future - and all our respect to you for that deep understanding on how the game can become better! :)
This might be the most beautiful Apple Watch game I’ve played! I’ve played a good amount on the watch, but this gives me hope for the future of Apple Watch time wasters lol. Can we get an option to play/adjust audio through the watch speakers? Some other games already do that :)
Also, I’ve noticed that when I get a notification, the game resets back into the map, thus losing my progress within whatever level I was currently in. Is there anyway to fix this, by possibly just passing the game during a notification? I’d rather this than utilizing do not disturb.

Thank you for the support and catching that bug, we're aware of it and are working on a fix :) As well as will add more control over the sound in an update.
