Was 5 stars until the ending


I adored this game until the final stage of level 9, when the game takes a sudden left turn and becomes something completely different, something that totally undercuts everything it was up until that point. A nice, contemplative, quiet and sadly whimsical game devolves into something stupid and absurd and hollow.

It was so disappointing that I didn’t even bother to try to go back and get all the candles. I only played through to make sure my review wasn’t unfair and everything did in fact end as stupidly as that level began. I didn’t realize until the finishing cutscene that it could actually end worse than I’d anticipated.

Maybe there are more levels coming. But if 1-9 are it, then this was a blown opportunity. But levels 1-8 and all but the end of 9 are delightful to play and worth the money.

Developer Response

Maybe you are just shocked by Chapter 9, but the rest Chapters are still worth to anticipated, be patient. The end will be very meaningful

Brilliant game


Love everything about it!

And thanks to the devs for fixing the blue ceiling bug in the water level!

PS. The people complaining about the ending: that WASN'T the ending; there’s still 3 more chapters coming. If you do your research you would know this rather than downgrade the game because you didn’t like the end of the lighthouse chapter. But there’s more to come that gives you the TRUE ending that is gorgeous and satisfying. Tired of people making false statements in their reviews.

What do you mean deleting your reviews/suggestions? There is no other forum of Candleman in the USA, except Facebook,Twitter,App Store and GP.Search Candleman and you can find them.
There may be some misunderstanding.



That really describes the visual of the game. You really have surpassed yourselves. This speaks well of the level of standard you have set. It is very high. I wonder what made you reach for this standard when so many games settle for less and are satisfied. Anyway thanks. It makes me willing to pay much more when there is obvious heart.

The controls are very good for play on iPad Pro 13”. I have no criticisms.
My one wish is that there were 1000 levels of bliss to play. ;)
