It's barely okay...
Saying the game is "okay," is actually being very generous. Every aspect of the game is sloppy and requires a loading screen. I mean, really? I can't even scroll through my inventory without the game stopping to load? That's pathetic and really takes me out of the experience. There's no real exploration factor either. You just tap left or right to scroll through the various rooms of the house, all of which (you guessed it!) have their own loading screen. Point and Click adventures are very easy to pull off, but these developers clearly need a trip back to the drawing board to put a lil more than 60% effort into this one. I really wanted to enjoy this game as I feel the iPad was MADE exclusively for point and click adventures and that's all I use mine for. Disappointment all around. It deserves 2.5 stars, but I'm in a good mood so I'll round up instead of down. Unless you've already played every other point and click adventure game in the app store (which I highly doubt you have) pass on this one. You'll thank me later!
Decent Escape Game
The graphic style is well done, but I agree that retina support would help for those devices. It's important to know that the game doesn't (seem to) support multitasking, but does have a manual save that you access from the menu button. While the game advertises "no inventory management", I found the repeated tapping on an item to get to the inventory, then tapping to scroll through the inventory a bit of a drag. It would be easier if tapping an item brought up the full inventory in one screen, and the inventory didn't disappear each time you selected an incorrect item, requring you to go back to the inventory and scroll back through everything. All in all, a decent escape game if you're into the genre.
I enjoyed playing this. The puzzles were fun, not too ridiculously difficult, but did make you think a bit. Some of the objects are hidden a bit too much, though, so random tapping may allow you to discover one or two things. Also the inventory display is not the easiest to cycle through, but just tap right for the last object you got, or left to cycle through the rest. Tweaking that would help quite a bit, actually, though it's certainly manageable now. The art/graphics are nice, and I like that it lets you know you've completed certain areas if you try to tap them again. Overall, I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next adventure!
