"A Bleaker Predicklement is the greatest adventure of 1884" - The Evening Burble
"The game has done a perfectly Adequate job capturing the charm of the first game, only on a much bigger scale. As I unlock more of the story, I’m continually surprised and delighted." - Appunwrapper.com
"If you enjoy puzzlers, this is definitely for you. The quirky voices and music fit the game perfectly, but the most noticeable thing is Bertram's strange nose - I'm assuming it's this large nose that helps him sniff out the clues." - Oksana Ryan, Pocketgamer.co.uk

Ratings and Reviews
You know this is an awesome game. Bugs at launch happen, give these guys a break (at the bare minimum I think their hilarious *spoiler alert* "You want some pipe?" speech option from the man-servant more than makes up for a little bug issue at launch)!!!!!! No one starts demanding a refund for their iPhone when iOS updates are buggy. It is just an annoyance until the developers fix the problem. I am experiencing a bug just like everyone else and can't wait for it to be fixed because I love the game. But come on guys... let these people be human. I seriously cannot wait for Bertram Fiddle 3.
EDIT (an FYI for those having issues with the update): you just have to start a new game and it works as it is supposed to now that the developers have fixed the bug. I was pretty far advanced just like everyone else and while I didn't necessarily WANT to restart it was still worth it for the mere fact of *spoiler alert* ( that has nothing to do with actual game progression but is just hilarious nevertheless) catching the significance of opening the right desk drawer in office at Soap Factory to hear Bertram remark that "this man must like to keep his skin soft." Didn't catch this the first time around! 🤣. Well worth the restart haha
Awesome game until it freezes
Sad to have to give a 5 star worthy app only 2 stars. It is fun and beautiful- but still has many issues. Some are fixed and some not. When I pay for an app I expect it to work, and if not to be quickly fixed. I have never had a paid app glitch out as much as this one does. It has so many issues you can not complete it without first researching the exact order to play it.
Update: even though the freezing was fixed in the trophy room- there are many other glitches that make finishing this game near impossible. All in the last part of game. (Spoiler alert) First I checked the red vases prior to talking to lady so the key never showed up. (Common issue for other users if you look into it online. Started new game, as that was only option). Was able to do right order and found key right away. Then I got all the way to the very end of game... but didn't put cork in dolphin prior to bending pipe so now cork will not go in even though thats where it goes. Also once I turned off steam it no longer comes back through that pipe even once turned back on. If you don't play this in the EXACT order it wants it glitches so bad that finishing game is not possible! Total waste of my time I am not playing this game over from beginning a third time. I give up.
Love the game but still buggy
This is a fantastic next chapter in the Fiddle story. Very playable but still missing in game tips (walkthrough is online though), crashing near the train station when giving dog sausage and tough to control robot, and strange habit of Fiddle talking in Gavin's voice when the rock is offered to people. Otherwise, great game and a worthwhile buy. Fixing the bugs would make it seem less like a beta and make game play more reliable. For the robot, I needed to check online to see if I missed something because it just wouldn't move correctly. This shouldn't happen obviously. There are other bugs in the train station scene (where they line up to pay the ticket). One time Gavin still had women's clothes on, even though they were removed beforehand, and one time Fiddle actually disappeared! He was still there but invisible, and he reappeared when leaving that scene.
