Top Game

I download and then delete a lot of these games but this one had me hooked from the get go. Really well thought out. Tricky in places (for me anyway). Excellent playability. What makes it more impressive that this was produced by one guy on his own. Keep up the good work Stuart and I can’t wait for the next one.


So far so good

Autosave has been promptly fixed so all is good now. Much better than most escape style games with text accompanying most things you touch. Early days so will update review again soon.

Developer Response

Hi, I'm sorry to hear you have had issues with the game freezing, which seems to have affected some players mostly on iOS12. Autosaving has now been adjusted to make sure it happens on every screen. Patches to fix a freezing issue have been added in version 1.3. Please try this version and I'd appreciate it if you could let me know how you get on by following the support link on the store page and sending me a message. Thank you - Stuart

What lies underground

Stuck on the chest puzzle? Any help out there.
Thanks I had the small chest lit up, but with hint found the coloured card. Onward we go. 😀

Developer Response

Hi, I am currently putting together a series of hints for puzzles on the website. The chest puzzle is on there. Please have a look.
Thanks - Stuart
