Crafty Cub, I love you

I first saw this app about... 20 minutes ago. I'm always on the lookout for apps to help me come out of a bad mood or focus on something else when I get overwhelmed, and the colors and nostalgia of playing with perler beads again appealed to me immensely! The canvas may be small, but that doesn't take away from the amount of things you can create. Pictures are created by dragging and dropping individual beads and I thought it would be a hassle at first, but it makes you think about what you're making and takes all your attention. I was not bothered by it at all. The music is fantastic, the colors are wonderful, and the little effects are so cute. Well worth the $3 I paid. I will be playing with Crafty Cub for a long time!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for the sweet review! I wanted to make something sweet and relaxing that would feel kind of meditative the way coloring in a coloring book feels, so your feedback makes me really happy. I hope you keep having lots of relaxing moments working with Crafty Cub!
