Cool but glitchy

I really like this game, but on my ipad2 I frequently run into situations where it doesn't recognize what I am drawing. It seems that most often it is just one character during a level, sometimes extending to the boss. Sometimes the characters move but it doesn't recognize any character drawn, almost as if it temporarily freezes. A few times it has completely shut down and left me back on the tablet screen. It can be very frustrating when I have built up 500 stars and suddenly it won't recognize what I am drawing, causing me to lose the game. The saving grace here is that I don't lose the stars. I do have to start again though. The graphics are very good and I actually enjoy playing. Other than a request to fix the fix the bugs, I do have another comment. I do like the ability to turn off the music in a game without losing sound effects. This game doesn't seem to have that option. Thanks for the cool game. Five stars if these glitches were to disappear!

Love my Lum!

Great game! Addicting as h****! Would give it a 5th star if I could find an explanation somewhere on the on what it takes to beat "shear"! I have beat him several times but really don't yet understand fully what I did that actually beat him. Dumb luck? Game does glitch out sometimes; the really tough boss throws the rock chunks out so low to ground that no symbol ever appears, and the other boss doesn't always recognize a perfectly drawn symbol.... But other than that, great game to play and pass time! Maybe mild mania will update it and add a level to switch it up a bit. I'll buy it!
Ps. Is it just coin incidence that some of the souls look like "Elebits"?

Fun but issues

The game really is highly addictive/difficult. If playing on an iphone is truly is hell to make some of the simple symbols, and the fact you randomly teleport from a symbol that's far away or even I intended. Takes away from the strategy if you are aiming for a combo of simple darklings only to hit the other side of the stage. I'd recommend a better register of specific commands on the symbols so it's not so easy to have the AI confuse the two. Maybe I need to just get a iphone pen for it.
