Beautiful but not for me.


The game looks beautiful but I really struggle with it. The movement is for the left hand only and it’s uncomfortable holding down move on the touch screen for long periods. (Apple Pencil helps) Played it for 10 mins I wish I hadn’t bought it. Sorry.

Well I have play it for a few hours now it did seem to get better but the levels all look the same and back tracking is very boring. Need a more detailed map or a little guidance.

Oh definitely needs some more cut scenes to break it up a bit.

Gimme some power to GO

Would probably be a great app if it was more controllable. The character/vessel you attempt to drive is very hard to maintain power in. I asked several friends to try, they had same experience and opinions. Now it’s off my iPad in storage hoping for an update to better it, because at present it’s certainly not worth it’s price.

Extremely clever

This is one of the most atmospheric, challenging, engaging, dynamic, beautifully designed games I’ve ever played on my iPad. Just amazing
