Ok, so this game looks astounding and the music at the opening credits looks amazing. But there are a few problems that I would love the developers to fix. My first problem is that I have an iPhone 5s and it says that it runs on this device but it doesn’t. It plays the music, shows the credits and as it loads the opening screen, it crashes. Every single time I get my hopes up they are put out. I have heard some really wonderful things about this game but it seems that I cannot play it. The only other problem that I have is that the episodes are incredibly expensive. If none of you have a problem with this or trouble with glitches then I am glad you will get to enjoy this game. I don’t know if version 1.1.1 is just a bad batch or if it doesn’t work on my phone specifically. I really hope that there is an update so that I can play it and remove this bad rating. Another thing for the developers is to please pay heed to this message and do not send me your copy and paste way to get a refund. I don’t want my money back if there is any way for me to play it. All I really want is my money’s worth. I really love the idea of this game it’s just that I actually want to play it.
Perfect Port, Just Wish They Didn’t Hold Back
Life Is Stranger plays beautifully on iOS, with touchscreen controls that work with the game rather than against it. This caliber of quality is rare on iOS and I highly encourage developers to release console games on iPhone due to the power of newer devices. The game looks very good on iPhone X, but it also looks about the same on iPhone SE which is significantly less capable — impressive results. While the game is optimized well for iPhone X, I wish that Square Enix didn’t hold back since it is evident when textures are lower quality or aren’t as sharp as they could be.
The game is playable on devices as old as iPhone 6, which again is an impressive feat, but that should also mean that devices that are several times powerful like iPhone X and 8 should have options for the best graphics possible. When not compared side-by-side the game does look gorgeous, but I think with some further optimization it can match or exceed the console versions.
5 stars - brilliant coming of age story (telltale style with its own twist)
Are people stupid? I see all these negative reviews because people can’t read obviously....this game is an episodic game and the description CLEARLY states episodes 4 and 5 will be released in EARLY 2018...you didn’t get cheated. You didn’t get ripped off. Your game isn’t broken. They just haven’t finished the episodes for iOS to release them yet. Do you want buggy/glitchy episodes or well-crafted ported episodes? Give the devs time to complete them...jeez, you can’t wait a month or 2? Either way, it’s your own fault for poor reading comprehension. It’s exactly like a telltale game. You pay upfront (if you want) for the full season and then get to download the episodes as they are released...at least for this game they released THREE episodes at once.
Man, some of the people on here act like such spoiled babies who want everything right now
