This game is nothing less than FANTASTIC! If you're an indie game fan who loves unique, intriguing, gorgeous and well thought out games you are in luck with this. I'm no professional critic and I was extremely critical and hesitant at first. I have had my eye on this for some time and was waiting simply because I've been wrapped up in other games. However, I must say if you purchase no other iOS game anytime soon "BUY THIS GAME!". Some say the controls are lacking. I think those statements are for those on anything smaller than you average iPad. If you have an iPad, or the mini you are probably better off. This game is fluid, simple and very hard to put down. I have yet to finish this game and have only read of the difficulties that lie ahead, I cannot wait to pull my hair out over this (I mean that in a good way of course). If those could be adapted to a console or my regular MacBook I would get it without hesitation. Great work on the developer and programming team! I'm looking forward to seeing what else you come up with :D keep it up! You have a solid fan here!
I'm reviewing this game based on playing it on the latest iPad.
I love this game. The words going across the screen as you explore are a nice touch and it feels as if you're playing through a beautiful storybook.
The game is very inventive in the way you can manipulate your powers in different ways to get to your goal. What I really love about this game though is just when you think the game's over and you're saying "well that was really short" you get a whole new set of levels of increased difficulty. These levels are the ones that really test how inventive you can be with your powers and how well you can multitask. Some of them are quite hard, but when you finish them you feel like you've accomplished something.
I still have some Void levels to finish, but when if my opinion of the game changes at all I'll let you know. But I honestly don't see that happening. This game is a winner in my book.
A beautiful story
This game is as beautiful as it is entertaining. The story was as amazing as the artwork, with just the right amount of strategy mixed in. It takes a simple concept, with an excellent form of game play that requires you to use your head a little.
All the while, an unseen narrator twists a story with dioulouge that almost seems inspirational, despite being the voice of doubt. The story is about, simply, you. At least, that is how the narrator refers to you. In truth, you control a piece of 'the void'. When you escape this void to go put and find true meaning and life in your existence, this vast and menacing expanse will stop at nothing to get you back. It sends monsters to capture you, and even will destroy whole worlds. But you slowly learn new ways to stay out of its clutches.
Overall, five stars isn't enough to display my thurough belief that this is one of, if not the, best app I have ever played.
