Very interesting


This story is very compelling, it's sad to think that 4 people were fighting for love and the two best lovers, one of them was forgotten and the other died because of one of the others. It's been a very long time since I found a good game like this, especially one that had some meaning to it. All that I suggest is that you add the chapters sooner, it gets me annoyed. But otherwise... best indie game I played. 👍 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I never rate stuff, but I just did Chapter 1 and my mouth is hanging wide open. Wow! It is an amazing story with a fun and challenging puzzle. Each one challenges you to think out of the box. It is definitely an option to buy one of the packs. I just want to say, keep up the good work.



I think you should not have to pay for all the levels. I have enough games that I have to pay for. But I like the game because it is an addictive strategy game. I just think you shouldn't have to pay for it. I give it four stars. I think it needs a little improvement but Otherwise it is a good game.
