Not my favorite


I hesitate to be overly critical because I really love Haiku Games. This dev has one of the most fair systems on the App Store. The game is free there are no intrusive adds. He makes his money by providing hints. In the past I have always written glowing reviews. I cannot in good conscience non bring up a few issues. First off I encountered a bug when my battery charger literally disappeared from my inventory, forcing me to replay the chapter with the most annoying under water puzzle ever. Secondly many of the puzzles are rehashed from earlier games just in slightly different variations. Please dev on your next game do not rehash or give face lifts to puzzles that need to be retired. You are ready to take it next level. Do something fresh and more innovative. Overall it is a solid game worthy of playing.

Getting better!


Each game is getting better and better. I check almost each month the App Store to see if you have added a new one., I can't wait for the next one already. Keep the good work so my brain can solve more puzzles 😊

Game with great story line


Haiku makes good quality games. Chapters are well organized and the finale keeps me thinking. Only complaint is the game got restarted most of the time when it’s not on the screen and even need to replay a puzzle over again.
