On an iPhone 4S, the game runs smooth and the graphics are lovely. It's a mixture of a few types of games, first you are on a map and have to find a number of diamonds/trinkets.
Then you play bonus levels flying mainly on rails to get more diamonds/trinkets.
Then you trade in your diamonds/trinkets and get power ups that make life easier, like a shield.
Then you fight a boss.
Rinse and repeat a few times.
It was enjoyable for a couple of hours, but fighting the 4th boss? the white spirit boss where you had to beat 5 or more stages was my breaking point. It was a bit ridiculous.
The trouble is that sometimes the controls let you down a bit. Especially in the boss fights.
You can power up and use a shield to protect you, but sometimes doing the loop movement to make the shield is awkward or it just doesn't work (maybe I'm doing something wrong) and then when you get your finger back on the screen, sometimes to crow refuses to move for a second or two then dead.
Then you have to sit through a 20 or 30 second cut scene and do it all again.
I tried that 4th boss about 20 times and realised I was just fluking past the 3rd stage out of at least 5 stages (each stage takes a good minute or so) and gave up.
Maybe let us skip the cut scenes, give us a button to press to make the shield and it might bring the game to 5 stars.
Until then, this is a good 4 stars of relatively relaxing gameplay for a couple of hours.

Rare gem


Crow is one of those games that has an individuality, or you could say, a heart. It isn't perfect (ahem, writing), but it's incredibly well crafted, immersive and satisfying, with great artwork and soundtrack. Played on an iPad1 and iPhone4, the only performance issues I've encountered were hiccups during the otherwise reasonable and not at all frustrating loading times.
If you like atmospheric games with a fairly original world and story, and if flying, exploration and rail shooter action are your thing, you should definitely check it out.



Playing on gen4 ipad crashed part way through,left with totally blank screen, will have to reload and loose progress, up till now enjoying game completely although scoring a bit difficult to follow.
