Fun game but...

This is one of the best games I have played in awhile. Unfortunately there are some issues. The game is laggy and runs poorly the farther you get in the game. It also keeps crashing on me right in the middle of a level and I keep having to start them over. It’s actually getting to the point where I can’t even finish a level. Also the level where you are escaping with the brother in the metal ball has a glitch where you are unable to get the ambulate piece. Max is unable to jump up into the room on the left side to get the piece. I wish you would fix the problems in an update soon because it really is a fun game, when it works...

Loved it!

I read the reviews pretty thoroughly prior to purchasing this game, and made the decision to give it a try. A lot of people said the controls were crappy and that the game crashed consistently.

Controls were fine once you got the hang of it...I played on an iPhone XS Max so maybe that’s why they worked well for me. A smaller device would probably pose some issues if you have abnormally large thumbs 😬

The game itself was done well graphically and the puzzles were not too difficult to where I would get frustrated. I loved how many levels there were, made for good game play for about a week on and off for me personally!

Only crashed a few times when I was trying to solve a puzzle the incorrect way...the character would get stuck and it would close out the app. Not a huge problem.

Overall awesome game and looking forward to seeing more from this developer. Thanks for the fun!!

Fun and Visually Beautiful

The game reminds of Limbo, but has the opposite atmosphere — joyful and bright, rather than horrific and dark. The animations between gameplay are wonderful. They make you feel like you’re participating in a movie.

The controls could be tighter and it would be nice to be able to adjust the position of the movement circle. On the iPhone X it feels to low on the screen, making ‘down’ difficult. But, overall, great game!
