Excellent game but needs iPad support

I love this game so much! Can play this for hours maybe even days on end! But after I upgraded to iPad with retina, it doesn’t seem to maintain the resolution in the main screen. There is full resolution in the tools and options. But not on the main screen which is a huge turn off when trying to play on a large screen. Developers, please take care of this.

Crazy Addictive !! :D

Initially I was a bit reluctant due to the price, but now I feel it was worth every penny

Too much fun !!

Beautiful game

I came across Don't Starve while I was looking for a good game to kill time. Seeing the good reviews, I thought of giving it a try. It didn't disappoint me.
The gameplay is simple: explore the world and gather materials during the relative safety of daylight, survive the night by crafting a fire and consuming some food, repeat. But if you think this is going to be easy. Then you are wrong. There will be many things trying to kill you. Death is inevitable. Every time when you start a new game, you will be in a new world.

One negative which I can think now is that the game don't have any objective other than surviving. There is no end or leader board or multiplayer etc. You can spend hours in this game. It is worth every penny you spend.
