What's New in Version 1.1.15
Performance improvements and bug fixes
rare to find a game of this caliber. monument valley is the only other one that comes to mind. i didn't have a problem with the touch and drag interface that others complained about. it's not like you have to touch and drag directly on top of the the character. you can do it anywhere on the screen so it doesn't block your view, and i'm on an iPhone SE which is the same size as a 5. people on 6 or 7 should have nothing to complain about. the game itself is a beautifully designed. the physics of the game is also well thought out. loved playing it for a few weeks. sad it's over.
Great game, horrible controls
Echoing the previous reviews that gripe about the controls - I'm on an iPhone 6s+, and there are many time sensitive and accuracy puzzles where I knew exactly what I needed to do, but had to retry dozens of times to get through because of the terrible interface. This is not challenging and fun as you develop hand-eye coordination, it's frustrating and dumb when the little guy gets stuck or stops running because the touch screen won't respond to small finger movements. And often if you have to switch directions you can't even see the kid until you lift your finger and reposition it. Replace the stupid touch-and-drag with left / right / jump buttons and this would be way more fun.
This is what gives me faith in mobile games
Nowadays where the App Store is dominated by throwaway apps, very few games truly stand out as masterpieces. I have only encountered maybe 5-10 such games in the past 10 years of the iPhone's existence. This is one of them. This game is incredibly simplistic yet refreshingly complex. It represents a challenge well worth the effort it takes to complete it. The game is beautiful and actually has a storyline that adds a personal touch to the quest. One of the best games I've ever played for its content, design, purpose, and execution. There's a reason this is one of the essentials.
