Ratings and Reviews
Was 5 stars until the ending
I adored this game until the final stage of level 9, when the game takes a sudden left turn and becomes something completely different, something that totally undercuts everything it was up until that point. A nice, contemplative, quiet and sadly whimsical game devolves into something stupid and absurd and hollow.
It was so disappointing that I didn’t even bother to try to go back and get all the candles. I only played through to make sure my review wasn’t unfair and everything did in fact end as stupidly as that level began. I didn’t realize until the finishing cutscene that it could actually end worse than I’d anticipated.
Maybe there are more levels coming. But if 1-9 are it, then this was a blown opportunity. But levels 1-8 and all but the end of 9 are delightful to play and worth the money.

Maybe you are just shocked by Chapter 9, but the rest Chapters are still worth to anticipated, be patient. The end will be very meaningful
That really describes the visual of the game. You really have surpassed yourselves. This speaks well of the level of standard you have set. It is very high. I wonder what made you reach for this standard when so many games settle for less and are satisfied. Anyway thanks. It makes me willing to pay much more when there is obvious heart.
The controls are very good for play on iPad Pro 13”. I have no criticisms.
My one wish is that there were 1000 levels of bliss to play. ;)

^ ^ We are very glad that you are loving Candleman, the rest levels will coming this year!!! \(^o^)/
I bought the game a couple days ago and completed all the levels and replayed them all again to get all candles lit. Absolutely breathtaking! This game takes me to my happy place and I cannot wait till more levels. What I really want is maybe a clearer story line? I like to think about the stories behind the gameplay so if the cut scenes could be more clarified that would be great. Thank you for making this work of art :))
