Great Game, needs an update

Testing this game on macOS Sierra (no gamecenter available), makes it hard to play this game, because, you can’t save your progress

It would be nice to have offline saving for this game.

Beside this, the game it’s absolutelly amazing!

The saving bug it’s the only reason I don’t give this game 5 stars!

Simply Phenomenal

This is an absolutely superb game. The gameplay and visuals are in the top percentile of all App Store games. Seriously, JJ Abrams loves this game production company and its creator for good reason. The creative production, design, flow are all superb. It’s of the metroidvania genre and has a very fast pace with excellent cadence and flow. The performance and power/cpu consumption are exceptional, even on my low-perforamance MacBook. Of over 100 purchases on the App Store, this is my most fun yet.

I’ve only started, but it’s pretty good

I’ve been a Metroid/Castlevania fan for quite some time now, and I’d read about this game after doing searches for “Metroidvania”. So I had high expectations for this game, and it’s lived up to them - despite that it’s more Metroid than Castlevania. It’s running well on my late 2013 maxxed-out iMac. The only downer was that it doesn’t work with my Nimbus MFi controller. However, I broke out my old PS3 Sixaxis and it works like a champ.
