A Great Integration

The original Don't Starve is an amazing game in almost every regard. Now, making it portable? An attractive idea, but risky. I spent several days hesitating on the urge to purchase this app-- I dearly loved my Steam copy, of course, but I didn't know whether or not I should invest more money into a potentially disappointing mobile version. Well, if you're experiencing the same qualms as I did, worry no longer. Don't Starve: Pocket Edition upholds the legacy. Unlike many second releases, very little is removed from the original game here. The map is smaller, and, as expected, the controls are different (more finnicky, too, but that's really my only possible complaint), but the content is virtually the same, and just as fun. Now you don't have to wait to get home to continue your struggle for survival. The experience is right at your fingertips, eager to delve back in once the daily routine starts growing a little dull. I give DS:PE a full five stars, and wish Klei great luck in keeping up the quality of their entertainment.

Really Great

It's a awesome game don't get my wrong but there is no multiplayer but here is an idea, Minecraft teamed up Microsoft so you can log in as your Xbox account and Don't Starve is on the Xbox so you could link it both up and play with friends. For people who want to start a channel but don't have a screen recorder, Don't Starve has one pre-installed. When you want to play your music, you would have to plug in your earphones then press play to listen to music but for people who don't have it will just be annoyed with the same music but me personally I'm fine. I wish there was more characters because it's fun to see what the characters' powers are. For the build menu the buttons are too small and should have a customization for the size you want it. The Greatest Game Ever Made. Oh and a new idea how about a Don't Starve in space or something

Just 1 possible improvement

Game quality exceeds expectations and really doesn't differ from the steam experience. Rather, it improves it as am now able to play this wherever I go.

As a possible improvement, since we have an attack and gather button for the right hand, wouldn't it make sense for the left hand to be able to move the character in all directions without having to reach all the way to the other side of the screen? It feels clumsy when I have to move right and my left hand's thumb is blocking the center of the screen. Especially problematic when fighting enemies. A hold and drag system could possibly improve things?
