This game has no potential. I’d give it less than one star if I could. Agree with other reviews that the game controls are beyond terrible. Very simple puzzles are frustrating because you can’t reliably turn a ring without it jumping out of place. If you eventually give up and tell the AI to calculate a solution for you, it just skips the screen and you don’t even get the satisfaction of seeing it “calculate” a solution or even what the solution was. Tries to have a story line that is so slow it’s more boring than a bad sci fi movie. Very simple puzzles that are hard in the wrong way because you can’t tell what you are supposed to do. Long drawn out graphic sequences like light traveling up a wall that lend nothing to the experience. A scanner function that identifies locations and when you double tap to go there after it crawls at a snail’s pace to that location there is nothing to do. Fun? Glad it was only $0.99 and even at that it wasn’t worth it. Deleted and I’m going back to watching Netflix. Stay away. Stay very far away.

I somehow managed to discover the first game, Returner 77, only about a month ago, so I was very happy to find this had already come out. (Stupid cliffhangers! Got to love them, though...) I feel like this is a very clever sequel and not at all what I was expecting. It definitely took me a few moments to understand who and where I was in relation to the story I already knew. Now I’m psyched to keep playing!

The visuals are still amazing with great music and sound that make a very atmospheric experience. Puzzles/alien tech are very intuitive and just way too fun to interact with. This is definitely one of those “hands-on” style of adventure games that I just love to play. I definitely have not experienced any gameplay issues like other reviewers.

Please keep making fantastic games!

Gorgeous, but has touch control issues


As with Returner 77, this is eye poppingly beautiful. The graphics are on par with or better than other games in the point and click puzzle genre. The touch controls are really, really clunky, though. Very slow and unresponsive, to the point where I thought I was stuck because I couldn’t get to something due to unresponsiveness. At times it feels light on puzzles, too- many times the puzzles were too easy, or an important thing happened just because I pressed a button. Overall, it was worth playing for some fun puzzles and the totally amazing graphics. To the devs: beef up your puzzles and fix the controls so that they live up to the dazzling graphics and you’ll have games on par with The Room series.
