What's New in Version 1.9.1
-New reading flow
-New social features
My biggest problem with this app is how buggy it is. There have been multiple places in the game where I will try to pick up an item and the app just breaks and closes.
That being said, I would give the app 5 stars if the bugginess was addressed and taken care of. But as it's not, 3 stars it is.
Had to throw it away
Couldn't get further than halfway through it. Kept dying over and over and having to repeat the same scenes over and over. I was enjoying it. But now I am utterly stuck permanently and decidedly at the peak of my frustration tolerance. There are no tips to be Googled and the game leaves you sort of, well, screwed.
Horrible writing, obvious choices
Lame with a capital 'L' - the writing is amateurish and choppy; horrible grammar. The storyline is contrived and obvious; there is no suspense, only the chance of the dice. Waste of money and time.
