It’s awesome

Shocked but happy

I saw in the reviews that the computer version is better in this and that. In the app’s defense, while the review may have good points, it’s already half price here and it’s still quality! Sure, there’s a few minor bugs occasionally but those hardly stop me and my brother from immensely enjoying this game. We love it, keep it up Kiel entertainment!

Fix the virtual stick!

Troy Parry

This game has great potential on pocket edition, however it’s very difficult to attack mobs using the default touch mode. If you enable the virtual stick, it’s hard to reach the controls when playing on iPad. Secondly, if there’s something below the virtual stick (like a shrub), the control won’t work (it wants to action what you touched below the stick). This area should be reserved for the controls only! Easy fix, but it currently renders the virtual stick useless.
