Trace is awesome!

The child I mentioned in the review is 13 now. I STILL put this app on every iphone and ipad. All these years later, it's still wonderful. One of the first games in the app store back when it was new and we all knew EVERY app because there were so few. Get this. It's still awesome. Ah! Nostalgia.

Old review:
I hope they add more worlds. Please!
I love this game. My friend's six-year-old daughter loves this game. My friend with a phd loves this game. It's like the book HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON came to life! Amazing. Addictive! Massive fun! Developers-- a new purple crayon world would be cool.

Frustrating experience

While initially provided a nice burst of nostalgia to the early days of the app store, it was quickly overtaken by frustration from the controls. Often times I would press jump or move, but the input wouldn’t register, and I’d die. Additionally, resetting a level often took several presses before the button registered.

The level design is also all over the place. Some levels are straightforward while others are meant to be more complex, but they don’t really have a proper order to their difficulty. Many levels can simply be cheesed by drawing a path on the top or bottom of the level and skipping everything, and often the levels that can’t be cheesed in this way make you wish you could, due to unreasonably wild obstacle movement that is near impossible to predict and makes many levels feel luck-based, especially with the slow movement speed previously mentioned unresponsive controls adding an extra layer of making the game feel that it’s actively fighting against you.

At best, might be worth poking at a few levels to see what it’s all about for novelty or nostalgia, but I can’t recommend trying to play the full game.

The memories!

Was going through my past purchases and saw this. I still remember playing this when my mom got stuck on a layover coming back from Florida years and years ago. Glad to see it is still supported and I’ll definitely be checking out the second edition
