Fantastic game, iffy controls
I've had the pc version of the game for some time now but I've never been able to properly play it because it would invariably crash once I finished chapter 2 (although I did manage to get to chapter 3 once) but now I'll hopefully have the chance to play the game in its entirety thanks to dotemu.
Unfortunately a problem that both the original and the port have is that the controls aren't nearly as good as they could be. In the original you would guid max along with your cursor rather than clicking a location and having him walk there. That coupled with his slow walking speed made things very tedious. This port has the same issues PLUS some wonky touch controls. The game is very slow paced so it won't effect your ability to play it but it will occasionally be a bother
Loved it but...
... I love adventure POC games but don't have a PC. This game really fun, great story, I absolutely love games with different themes for different levels and how the story tied together. Voice acting was very good. However I was playing on a small iPhone 5s and the 'trigger points' for so many things just got lost in the densely detailed environment. Also, yes please give a basic item tutorial, and consider have a 'description' for each item when clicked on, or maybe update the item menu. And the reaction time between clicking on areas and then getting recognized was really aggravating I almost deleted game.
Thanks for a good game I think for small screens this is not a good choice though.
It's really cool that Sanitarium was ported to the phone. It's easy access and you can play this classic anywhere at any time. The game has a great story that's both creepy and comical at the same time, and seeing that Sanitarium came out in 1996, the graphics and sound design are pretty crisp, and if you get stuck, there's a nifty hint button. My only complaints is that every once in a while it's hard to click on a specific point, and also the dialogue is both rather low and sometimes an entire quote, making you have to do it again. These, however, are small bugs that should be easily fixed. Otherwise, a great port!!!
