Excellent game - extremely underrated GEM


5 stars

There's just a few bugs that cause the game to crash sometimes on my iPad Pro 10.5 - hopefully they can be fixed with future update.

Ps. People complaining about the controls I don't understand it, as they work fluidly and responsive; you just have to get used to them.. and the character CAN/DOES go faster and speed up if you find the upgrade for him, which you can easily get after playing for like an hour or less. People need to give the game a chance, it is really a greatly polished, fun game.

Another example of a game that needs to have a free test phase


Very pretty game, but it's extremely difficult to control the movement of the character with the necessary precision and speed on a touchscreen, especially limited to left hand and having the game set up so its your left thumb doing to movement control.

Some of the puzzles require fast and accurate flying within a time limit which is just about impossible on an iPad.

This is one of many games that should have a free test game with samples of the different types of controls and such, or it should offer a refund.

First boss fight is bugged and can't be beat


Please fix it so I can give a proper review once I finish the game.

The boss will attack once or twice and then go into a perpetual state of opening and closing its mouth, revealing an energy ball. No matter how much damage I do to the boss or its energy ball, it won't die. Like I've spent a lot of time doing tons and tons of damage to its head and orb, and it just will not die.

My other complaint is that the controls are utterly terrible. I feel like I'm skating on socks. A little more control would be nice off the bat, although I'm hoping this is something that improves as one progresses through the game.

You don't have to kill the boss to progress.
When he open its mouth you have to feed him with the little flies you can spawn by reaching the spawner on the right. Feed him three times to put him to sleep and proceed in the game!
