Ratings and Reviews
Good potential, lots of bugs
I learned about this game from another popular developer, so I preordered it and was really looking forward to it. Overall, the game had a few challenging puzzles and nice graphics, and it kept me occupied for a day or so. I did have an issue where I lost an item after placing it, and had to restart the entire game when it never reappeared in my inventory or allowed me to pick it back up (chime). Sometimes the controls were clunky and it took a number of taps to complete a task. I was a little disappointed in the story; the letter in the beginning of the game suggested some sort of mystery and I looked forward to that, but the game abruptly ended with unused items in my inventory and not a lot of closure. Overall, if the bugs were fixed and a little more depth was given to the story (or we get a part 2), it would get a higher rating!
Give it another try!
I had no glitches at all, and all of the clues made sense. I enjoyed the challenge, and the witty dialogue. It did make me think, but that is why I play these games. I totally recommend this to new players, and those that had problems with the app to go back, replay, and leave a better rating.

Hi Gammygamer, Thank you so much. Very glad to hear you enjoyed the game. - Stuart
I am really enjoying the game so far. I am playing on an iPad Pro and have had zero technical issues so far. I’m maybe halfway through the game. I am very stuck on several of the puzzles however. I feel like I know what to do but I can’t find the items I need. As some other reviews have mentioned I wish there were some hints available but I’ll keep at it.
