Wish I could play!
Well, I downloaded the game on my 3gs, but when I tried to open the app, it would seem lik it was loading, then it would crash. This happens EVERY time I try to open it. If I could play the game, I believe it would be very good. IF I could play the game.
Exquisite, but.... I am not a gamer so I don't know how it's supposed to work. It takes me a while to figure out each sequence in a font (level?). More help for us non-gamers would be helpful. I absolutely hate that what I do once for each font must be re-done each time I close the app. That means I have to start all over again. I have been doing the same font now for almost a day and cannot get even the initial A-B-C done. I may end up deleting the app since its beauty is becoming totally obscured by my ever-growing frustration. Almost addictive... but too annoying to be so. Three stars for the beauty of it, including the history and the music; zero stars for the game.
Can't even open the game :(
I was watching a stacyplays video on YouTube, when I thought "is this on the iPad?". It was, but sadly, it looks like its going to load, and then crashes. Please fix this. The game looked amazing though, so I give it 5 stars
