Customer Reviews

I'm confused?

I can't honestly review this app, because I haven't played it yet, but I don't understand something that maybe someone else does & can explain. I opened up another of their games, Titanic, & the opening screen shows this app for iPhone, but has a countdown timer w/16 hours, etc. mins and etc. seconds. Countdown for what? It's already in the AppStore, it's only a free trial w/an IAP of $1.99 to buy full version, so I'm confused? Anyone get it? Help!

"Game" plays itself 😒

It asked for a review after the end if its 5 min demo, so okay:

Too many unavoidable "tap here now" instructions for absurdly basic things. It tells you how to play a slider puzzle and walks you through every move. You can't get rid of the instructions, so you aren't actually playing a game, you are just tapping on bouncing arrows. It NEVER STOPPED telling me what to do next. Since it NEVER let me make a move that wasn't guided by a bouncing arrow before it went to the "unlock now" screen, I have no idea if it does this for the whole "game" every time a slightly different version of a completely generic puzzle is presented. Too bad, because the graphics were pretty.

Gamezeebo gave it a poor review, too.

I would have purchased this if it were a game. Based on the demo version, it is effectively nothing more than a tutorial on how to tap on bouncing arrows. 👎

Alawar Sellout???

I already purchased this game over a year ago, when it was released by Alawar Entertainment, and for only .99 cents!

I see it was pulled from the AppStore back in April, just to be rebranded and distributed via Big Fish. This is this exact same game, but with 2 exceptions: 1) They took a full game and turned it into a locked demo version, and 2) They are charging a dollar more for it, just because it's being distributed by Big Fish now.

Save your money and wait for this one to become a full version again, and on sale for .99 cents. Seriously.
