4 Stars and this is why...
SPOILER ALERT: All around a very great 'escape' game. I love the puzzles, the riddles, and the frustration of figuring out how to find all the notes! The fact that you have to purchase levels is a bummer, but we understand that money must be made. I only had to watch hints twice throughout the entire game, good feature. I do believe that the game ended abruptly however. If you are to build a story (via notes), have your protagonist escape/win/anything.. I finished the game 100%, and was very disappointed how it ended. I hope an update will come soon to add more levels without purchasing anything else. TLDR: 4/5 stars, game ends badly, purchase 2nd half of game.
It's only $2.99 for 2nd half, you penny pinchers spend twice as much on a Big Mac and this won't even kill you.
Great for Any Myst/The Witness lovers!!
I adore this game! I find it very compelling, however not to difficult. I find it is very good distraction. I quite enjoyed the simple level design and graphics and have yet to get annoyed by the music. As with most puzzle games there is little replay ability but I still enjoyed going back and trying to figure out how to collect all of the notes.
My only complaint is that I wish there was a feature where all the notes could be seen in one place instead of having to go into the level to read it, leave the level, and then go to next one.
Slight Spoiler here so be wary-
The final level, the true final level, still leaves a sense of mystery with me even after I put my phone down. I have still to figure it out and I still sometimes think about it whenever I see the app on my home screen. Hopefully one day I can figure it out. Very few games have ever resonated with me this much. Very well done! I hope to see more games like this in the future!!!
Good game, awful ending(s)
Fun, clean non-buggy interface. Nice art, I could tell some nice effort went into that. A few of the puzzles were a bit too, "Tap everywhere and see if anything reacts," but not too bad. There were several quite creative mechanical puzzles in there too. This would be a good game to play with a parent and child, working through the puzzles and discussing different approaches. Each level could be done in 15 minutes to an hour.
The bonus "notes" were fun to find, though once collected, they don't seem to lead anywhere.
The first ending is appalling. Really? Just "The End"? Couldn't even come up with a splash screen and a final note to give some closure? Unfortunately, this is a pattern in some games of this ilk. Have a few good free levels, get the customer to pay to play more, but then don't worry about providing complete content after that, since you already have their money so it doesn't matter.
So, overall I would say the game is worth playing for most of the puzzles, just be prepared for a letdown at the end.
