Customer Reviews

Best game I've ever played on mobile!!

Whale Trail is absolutely adorable, fun, and gorgeous. The graphics and colors are beautiful, the gameplay is swift, fluid, and easy to pick up (but hard to put down!) and the music is fun, carefree, and catchy. Willow and all his friends are so cute, and every upgrade, bonus, and treat in the store can be obtained by earning money, called "Krill", in-game; it's not one of those annoying 'you practically need to buy everything to get anywhere' games, although it's so wonderful that I might just buy some Krill anyway to support the devs. That's how well-made and charming Whale Trail is!

I rarely ever leave reviews because I usually don't have much to say, but this is different. At the risk of sounding like a broken record infomercial, treat yourself to Whale Trail! It's just a fun, happy, feelgood game. :)

best app, but have one problem


okay so I had an iPad third generation, and my ex and I discovered this game almost two years ago and never put it down and got super competitive and had loads of fun. I literally had beat the game. All upgrades, all characters, all costumes, and almost all of the achievements. almost.

and I just got a new iPad Air 2 since my iPad 3 was on its last legs. and that means I get to play the whole game again!!!

but I'm having an issue. almost since I downloaded the game, the game's sound effects do not work. it seems I turned them off once, because I was in public, and they just never turned on again. or something like that, anyways. I tried deleting it and re downloading, since I wasn't very far, it wasn't a big deal, but it didn't fix the problem.

so now willow flies through the sky with cheerful music, but no sounds for collecting blubbles, no sounds for running into clouds, and no sounds even in the menu sections for making selections. this was very upsetting to me since I love the sound effects.

don't know if there's a way to fix it or not...

Wonderful game

This is a fun game. I've not really seem many games you just kinda wanna... Do the best you can for the character in this situation. Angry birds? Don't care. Tiny wings? Meh. This one though, you really just wanna help Willow.

Overall this is a really fun, sweet game. It has a cute song, too. It's just addicting but not in the way you can't out it down. More in the way of just running it on and playing a round or two and moving on.

As for the app itself, it's a clean game with a good system. You don't have to spend money to go on and you can get Krill, the in game money, pretty easily but not so easy it's point less. There's no glitches or crashing issues I've run across, either. So it's a nice game and runs smoothly. Easily deserving of 5/5.
