Amnesia, pajamas, pigtails and a directionally challenged black sheep: unravel the mysteries of a quirky universe between fable and fantasy(*)
(*) unsuitable for players who do not like cats.
Brought to you by a rogue indie developer, Antistar is the beginning of a fantastic adventure, it will please fans of anime styles who also like reading and solving puzzles.
If you are addicted to point and click adventures the action scenes and dreaded one hit kill may shock you a little, please enlist the help of a joystick pro (but no, you cannot kill the giant raven, instead you should find the axe and listen carefully to its diminutive sibling).
More than 15,000 players noticed this game was made with love and decaliters of coffee. They compared it to Tate Modern and the LSD and are a little sad because the new chapters aren't out yet.
Need help? Check the walkthrough:
Another 15,000 players felt really grumpy after trying it. They skipped all the dialogues, were unable to solve the puzzles and lost patience with the controls after 10 minutes. Or complained that the night is dark.
They also noticed the lack of save points - however you can restart at the beginning of the latest stage you have completed, so you'll be OK if you can spare about 10 minutes per session.

One review stated that only the music is good. It went straight to my heart since the music is the only part I haven't done myself.
The new chapters aren't out yet because I want to make it up to EVERYBODY and come back with an AWESOME sequel. Besides I realized my first game engine was an obnoxious after hours mess and although this doesn't seem to affect gameplay, it limited my creativity so I just had to do *something*.

This is a wonderful game that I recommend to everybody. It's mind boggling, making you use your resources and common knowledge. It is a bit challenging, considering the fact that some things are unclear, the opponents move faster than your player, and sometimes when you press the attack button, your player automatically turns and faces the other way, getting your player killed. I also don't like the fact that when you do die, the game sends your player back a long long way(basically the beginning of the chapter) and that the controls are really hard to you. In think it would be better if the controls were on the lower right corner of the screen, making it easier to use the other controls on the left side. Otherwise, this game has a really interesting storyline, making this a really unique game that I have never played before. I deleted this game once, back in 2009 because the shepard part was too hard for me to pass. I remembered playing this game and redownloaded it, to realize that I STILL can't pass that part. Tutorials on that, please :D
But I love this game regardless.
So Addictive & Fun!!! Absolutely L-O-V-E It!!! <3
Even after I beat the last chapter I replayed it over and over! At first, it is difficult, kinda a brain-bender! But once you get real into it, it's omg addictive! As in, "Wait! What's going to happen next?! Am I going to die, monsters, WHAAAT??!!!" And you just can't pull away! I LOVE the graphics. In my honest opinion they're so cute and eerie~ (made a screenshot I took my cover pic on FB). I really like the characters. Alter, especially, since she's just a really mysterious AND suspicious character. I haven't a problem the controls. Actually, I find the fact that they can be anywhere on the screen quite helpful! I don't ever get a bored moment with this game. I don't know why so many people dislike it! Just have some patience! Haha, my friend and I did a quick cosplay as the girl and Alter. my cat was the cat. :p Cannot wait till the new chapters!! Keep it up!! <3 ^.^ (P.S- Will we see a running/fast walking action in the future? Ha!)
Read the dialogue - Use your head!
Unfortunately, I finished the game moments before I learned that you have to TILT your device to change the camera angle!
I love the music. I love the graphics. The controls are difficult to master, but tolerable and pretty smooth.
The puzzles can all be solved with some thought, but I'll give a hint. "How do I get past the shepherd?" The answer is within the question.
Quite a cliffhanger. I'm looking forward to a sequel.
