I’m surprised and happy to see this back on iOS! It’s an over looked classic, it was striking and beautiful and still is...

Escape to Nature

I can't believe how beautiful this game is. I love the nature sounds and how the frogs move their little toes as they adjust into position. I love how everything is rendered in 3-D so when a screen flips, it looks so cool! It's these little details that elevate this app's quality from standard to superior, and I commend the developers for going the extra mile!

Is this game for you? If you want action, no. If you are easily frustrated by intellectual challenges, no. This game will not raise your adrenaline level, so don't look to it for thrills. However, if you are analytical and like to take your time untangling a knotted necklace, you will like this. If you need something to do while bored at your desk, you can leave this sitting open and idly flick it with your finger without it being obvious that you are playing a game. (Don't tell anyone I said that.)

Just a note - the levels that are rated "Impossible" are not actually impossible, so don't be intimidated. It is very rewarding to finally conquer a tough level.

If I was going to get picky, I'd suggest adding a buzzing sound for the fly, and maybe changing the popping sound of the frogs' footsteps. And perhaps flowerbuds would be nicer than those cabbage thingies that represent the levels. But I’m happy with Ancient Frog the way it is. To me, it was well worth the price.

beautiful, brilliant, and boring

Please don't shun me for my title. Let me explain my alliteration. I love puzzle games, especially casual ones like this. PuzzleQuest is one of my favorite games of all time, so how could I be so upset with this game? The puzzle depends on the elasticity of the frog and it makes me want to rip his legs off when it seems like he should be able to stretch and bend just a little further than he should. It's basically one big trial and error game, but because it's such an abstract way of display a puzzle, I found myself making the same mistake over and over which just frustrated me. When I finally beat a puzzle I would move onto the next with little to no satisfaction, only a small bit of relief. Some people will find this game gratifying and enjoyable, but I didn't.

The graphics are great, the concept is decent, and it has a nice presentation overall, but it's just not for everyone. I personally found it very annoying and I know I can't be the only one. Also, there's a bug where the ambient sound file skips for half a second which I kept noticing. This game needs a Lite so that people can try it out first. Suppor this programmer and pick it up if you really like unique puzzle games, just make sure you're in a clear and relaxed frame of mind.
