One of my all time favorite games hits the App store!

One might think that this game is difficult but personally, all this game needs is the be customized for your hands. The gameplay is fun, the art is phemonial and the plot is entertaining; giving you the feel that this game is a cross between invader zim and pshycics. My only complaint is that I am on the second to last mind (the lady's stage) and I try to deliver the script but the game crashes out of the blue. If they fix that one issue, this game would be flawless.

Most frustrating game ever on pc!

This is THE WORST game I've ever played on a pc. It goes from boring, idiotic arrowhead quests to impossible and near impossible puzzles/battles. It's as if the makers of this game absolutely hate their gaming customers! The puzzles, quest items, etc. are often so badly designed/placed that you're required to attempt dozens of times before you succeed — do they think stupid and frustrating repetition is fun? It felt like the game was set up to make you keep failing, because the way the camera moves at the last second or some object is in the way so you can't see your destination or whatever,. but when you land after missing there is an arrowhead for you to get. This must mean they knew you'd land there! Truly, it feels like a sadist's game.

There is no way to succeed in one battle with a giant where the actions required can't be done — WASD + space bar + shift key + right-click all while running around on the outside of a cube and trying to find and destroy a machine that will kill the giant! I'd need four hands and three pairs of eyes and I'd still fail because the giant only needs two steps to MY 200 steps to overcome me and stomp me!

crashes at startup with new update 10.9.4

I love this game, but the program just crapped out after macbook pro update to 10.9.4. The problems seemed to begin in the theater level when I tried to take the boat in part 1 of the bad mail delivery scene to part 2. When the scene attempted to update, the game would crash. After several restarts and getting to the scene via a convluted path through portals and chaning the mood lighting, I was finally able to get to part 2. When switching the mood lighting back to happy, I entered the portal to get the upper figment in scene 1. There was no problem going through the portal and back to scene 1, but then whenever I tried to move in any direction, jump, or perform any action, I was transported back to scene 2. After trying to overcome this several times, the game crashed and keeps doing so everytime I want to start up. I am given the following message:

"The last time you opened Psychonauts, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the windows yourself.”

I have tried both reopen and don’t reopen options and the game still crashes upon opening.

Please look into this issue. I want to give this game a higher rating, but if I can’t play it, I can’t give it any stars.
