What's New in Version 1.0.4
Fixed level 7. Fixed hints in level 17.
4 Stars and this is why...
SPOILER ALERT: All around a very great 'escape' game. I love the puzzles, the riddles, and the frustration of figuring out how to find all the notes! The fact that you have to purchase levels is a bummer, but we understand that money must be made. I only had to watch hints twice throughout the entire game, good feature. I do believe that the game ended abruptly however. If you are to build a story (via notes), have your protagonist escape/win/anything.. I finished the game 100%, and was very disappointed how it ended. I hope an update will come soon to add more levels without purchasing anything else. TLDR: 4/5 stars, game ends badly, purchase 2nd half of game.
It's only $2.99 for 2nd half, you penny pinchers spend twice as much on a Big Mac and this won't even kill you.
A Beautiful, Engaging Quest and an Excellent Value
People complain about the $2.99 unlock fee, but this app is well worth it. A flat fee is far superior to a subscription or having to buy tokens/gems/coins to keep playing. For the cost of a coffee, the game offers a beautiful experience and some fun puzzles. It's not too hard and not too obvious. It doesn't try to be all things to all people. It's a world unto itself and you can explore it at your own pace -- slowly and with hints if you're a beginner, or blazing fast if you don't do anything but explore fantasy worlds. Some free levels to see if you like it. Definitely worth the fee if you're entertained. If you find it "too elementary," move on, genius.
Great for Any Myst/The Witness lovers!!
I adore this game! I find it very compelling, however not to difficult. I find it is very good distraction. I quite enjoyed the simple level design and graphics and have yet to get annoyed by the music. As with most puzzle games there is little replay ability but I still enjoyed going back and trying to figure out how to collect all of the notes.
My only complaint is that I wish there was a feature where all the notes could be seen in one place instead of having to go into the level to read it, leave the level, and then go to next one.
Slight Spoiler here so be wary-
The final level, the true final level, still leaves a sense of mystery with me even after I put my phone down. I have still to figure it out and I still sometimes think about it whenever I see the app on my home screen. Hopefully one day I can figure it out. Very few games have ever resonated with me this much. Very well done! I hope to see more games like this in the future!!!
