Sophisticated graphics and style
First, let me be clear. There is nothing about this game worthy of real complaining. It is beautifully visualized, has beautiful music, plays very well, and is very atmospheric. There is a bit of action with enemies, but it is mostly puzzle-solving.
I couldn't give it five stars, though, because it really was just ok in terms of fun. Like I said, nothing was done wrong, it just wasn't something I really looked forward to playing. There is certainly enough content, but I just can't figure out what was missing. A story perhaps? One small issue, though, too, was that it was kinda hard to tell where you were going, as the stage is very large, but the screen is not. I think this game would actually be better suited for the PC so you could see more of the stage while you played and didn't have to keep moving the screen around (and retracing your steps) in order to understand better where you were going and where you had been.
Great game - loved it on my MacBook but never finished it because I missed a key somewhere. Now it has scorpions as added monsters. You kill them by touching them w/your finger but be careful to touch THEM & not the board or Dawn will walk to them & get killed! Now also playing on iPhone is fun. It would help to have repeat instructions now & then or a place to go read them as some missed the way to kill the scorpions, or like when I missed the spirit key it would've helped to know when I did it before I left the level. Trying to find it later did NOT work...I wish someone had done a walkthrough but it sure would be hard. I hope I make it to the final end w/all the keys this time. Anyway fun puzzle game with some very hard puzzles but mostly just moderately hard to easy and all doable if you're patient. The levels are repetitious but different enough not to be frustrating.
What about the scorpions?
I really enjoyed this game when it first came out and played all of the levels available. When I came back recently to play the newer levels I encountered the new monster scorpions. I can't figure out how to kill them except to drop a bridge out from under them and that option is not always available. I cannot find any guide online to help me understand this. Like one reviewer said, the game is useless without a way to kill the scorpions
