Amazing game, but few bugs and no 60fps

I’m not going to focus on the game itself, because it’s fantastic. If you like Slay the Spire, this is worth your time. It’s also on Gamepass if you want to try for “free” before buying on a more portable version.

My main issue is the card selection can be finicky and too easy to accidentally cast a spell. It’s happened to me dozens of times at this point.

60fps support would be amazing, really any more graphical options. I maybe the option to turn down graphical effects to really optimize for battery life?

Wonderful card game with a twist but touch controls can be better

Great game. Was enjoying on game pass Xbox and now I can play on my iPad. You definitely should try it.
Below is a message to devs since I couldn’t find a way to report issues/suggestions on the website.
Bugs first. Swipe up and down on iPad has dead zones and not working smoothly all the time.
Picking a card bug is dangerous. When you tap on a card so it flows above all others and then start swiping this card to the field, you may drag card below instead. Happened dozens of times already. Easy to reproduce.
IPad specific layout - would be nice if you make space below for all the cards so they are not squished. There is plenty of space on iPad 12.9 at least. Also you can see the whole card but a bit below info like damage/health and still need to tap a card which seems silly since there is all that space. Same with floors. I can see all three floors. But yet I can’t target a spell to a different floor. Seems counter intuitive for a touch device. One solution could be to move icons from the bottom and to the sides. I understand the layout is good for iPhone, but not so much for iPad. Anywho the game is good, and could be more enjoyable on a large touch device with a few tweaks.

60fps and cross device saves?

The game itself is the same great Monster Train experience as on PC, no complaints with regard to gameplay. However, a few complaints about the port: — No 60fps mode. The game runs beautifully on PC, why shouldn’t it on mobile devices capable of running it? — Cloud saves are buggy/not working. Attempting to play the same save file across phone and iPad has not worked at all. Yes, they are logged into the same Apple account. Yes, I checked that cloud saves are enabled in settings. — More minor gripe, but swiping to switch floors on the train is rather finicky/unresponsive. Often takes multiple tries, and honestly tapping the tiny arrow is less annoying. —— The game could be great, and I’ll update my review if/when these issues get fixed. ———— UPDATE: The game now overwrote my more recent phone save’s progress with my unplayed iPad progress, effectively wiping everything I did last night. Lowering to 2 stars as now I don’t feel comfortable playing the game for fear my progress will be wiped again. Please fix this and make a more robust cloud save system.

Hi there, thanks for reaching out! Please note that the current Monster Train build is universal for many devices and optimized for battery life in mind. We'll look into seeing what making it 60fps on premium devices would entail.

About the issue with cross-device saves, we will look into your report. Meanwhile, please note that the cross-device saves are associated with your Game Center. Please make sure to always log in using the Apple ID connected to your Game Center and also make sure that the game is shut down on one device before starting it on another device. This should help you avoid save sync issues.

Thanks for the feedback!
