Crashes fixed: very good game

Much happier now. This update seems to have fixed the crash problem.

Game runs very smooth and takes you through some very unlikely but interesting scenarios.

I recommend this for anyone who us a fan of "pick a path" type of adventure books.

Had to throw it away

Couldn't get further than halfway through it. Kept dying over and over and having to repeat the same scenes over and over. I was enjoying it. But now I am utterly stuck permanently and decidedly at the peak of my frustration tolerance. There are no tips to be Googled and the game leaves you sort of, well, screwed.

Kickass2 ,

Like it.

I used iphone4s. iOS 5.1.1. Also crashed on iPad mini iOS 6.1. What a rip off.

Update: Version 1.5 fixed the crash for me. I like it so far.
