It's a fun game if I'm not accidently picking things up or throwing things around when I don't mean to. The controls make this a frustrating game to play. Perhaps a long press for picking up and throwing would help. This game has been on Android for a while. It's disappointing to see the controls are still so sensitive.
I'm going to be honest; I love this game. I've actually had a copy of it on Steam for a while, and I saw it was on the Play Store so I bought it here too. But, there are still things I would change. I think the controls should be more adjustable, so each player can make every button including the D-pad bigger or smaller, and there should be a button for picking up and dropping things, and another button to replace the long tap, which is to put stuff down without throwing it. The touch screen controls should be optional, because it never seems to work for me. When I tap to drop something, I usually mess it up. Dying because the controls made you move, when you wanted to throw the last child to safety and you only had 1 hp is no fun. Also, whenever I'm in a room with several creatures that move around on their own, the game tends to crash. I know that's a lot of complaints, but I think the game would be even better if these changes were made.
I didn't like it at first and i did get stuck in my house for a bit the first time i played but then i found the website with the recipes and i felt more equipped to play. Also the keypad for moving doesn't always send my guy where i intended. Ive walked though quite a few spirits unintentionally. Now I'm on level 9, but there is this one room that keeps throwing me out of the game, icy, goat eating flowers, 2 angry spirits, and a bunch of fire spirits, what gives?
Great game, controls are a bit wonky though
Looks lovely, but the controls are horrendous. The d-pad use usless and has a mind of its own. And using swipes is laborious and rarely goes were you want it to. Would be so much better if you could just tap on the square you want to move to!
A great game hampered by inconsistent controls. If using the swipe controls, you should only ever move in the initial direction. It's frustrating to have my character suddenly veer off in a new direction because my finger accidentally slid a little bit. If I want to move in a new direction, I should have to lift my finger completely and swipe in a new direction. The directional touch pad is useless as I frequently click a direction and end up throwing something instead. Also, I turned it off in options and it came back. These significant complaints aside, the gameplay is clever and the graphics are beautiful and the problems are easily addressed, so I look forward to updating my review soon.
Fixed a crash after year six
Adjusted the controls for 4:3 resolutions
