Loving the game so far

I like creepy games so this one is definitely for me, and I tend to like most 'mad head' games. Everything is running smooth so far, I agree about the's kind of annoying when you have to find it in the menu, instead of being in the open where you can easily click on it. I really like the fact that they're trying to change the HOP's (I've seen this in a couple games) you have to click and drag the sides of the screen to find the item. In the past I had a really hard to get them at the exact spot they need to be in to click the object, but they made it a little bit more phone-gamer-friendly this time. Thanks developers!

Dear Big Fish,
The only real complaint I have is..the fact that I've bought and paid for many big fish games and they keep asking me throughout the game to review the game! This is extremely annoying when you've already paid for it! I can see if you wanted to throw it in there after the trial and even at the end of the game, but 5 or 10 times throughout the game is way to much! Please try to thank the many people buying your games, by not doing that!

For what it's worth, I don't review a lot but if Mad Head puts out a game, I buy it. While I also buy 99% of the games Big Fish put out; Mad Head is by far one of my favorite developers because I know they won't disappoint. They haven't so far, and I've been playing these types of games for years. That being said, this particular game may not be for everyone. I tend to like the Nevertales story side of Mad Head, with the exception of Adam Wolfe. Maze360 was another great game by this developer, but like this one, it's definitely on the darker, creepier, and scarier side. Did it stop me from buying those games? Absolutely not. Just a different genre, that might not float everyone's boat. Unlike some, having an extra button to click to get to the map and so forth, does not bother me. With all that's included in this game like the teleporting map, customization of difficulty, morphing objects, collectibles, great storyline and graphics; I could go on, you can't find many better games than this. It's a definite buy in my opinion. Keep up the great work Mad Head. ✌🏻

Shadowplay: Darkness Incarnate by LynxMinx

Once again my review disappeared. I didn't love this game. Although Mad Head provides a very interactive experience, there is not that much to do at each location and the game was short. The graphics were decent and the storyline was easy to follow. Since most of the team already reviewed the game you know what to expect. The game was disturbing because it dealt with an insane asylum, known today as a psychiatric hospital. What ruined the game for me most of all is that Mad Head doesn't provide us with an in-game map tab, so in order to look at notes, achievements and the map, you must exit the game and go into the menu. My actual review is 3.5 stars. I deducted stars for the length and also for having to exit the game to access the map. I liked the older games from this developer (Nevertales) way better than this game!
Lynxie sends 💋😘❤️ to the remarkable DTE! We need to hold BigFish to the highest standards in order to get a better quality of games, as well as a larger quantity of games of this genre. So to all reviewers I say: please mention it in your reviews! If we don't ask we don't get!
