  • Expected less, but got more - and that’s unfortunate.

    By JerJerson
    I went into the game blind, aside from seeing a few seconds of gameplay when it was released. I only knew the game used swipe commands for combat. I expected the game to be shorter and more cohesive, like a story-fight-story-boss kind of deal. But the game is more like walking-fighting-walking-fighting-puzzle-walking, etc. There’s too much of everything, and none of it is good enough to warrant it. I expected less but better, but got more of meh. Maybe that’s my fault for not looking into the game more, but that doesn’t make it any less boring.
  • Best iOS game I’ve played

    By htlank
    I’m a console gamer and dubious of finding a mobile game that I would enjoy as much as a game on my Switch or PS4. This one made me a believer! Awesome. Felt like a little Zelda, a little GOW and a lot of fun. Dark tone. Great art design.
  • Not updated for iphone X

    By Mulraven
    Good game, but not enjoyable when half of the screen is black bars.
  • A pretty cool game.

    I wouldn’t call this game a revolutionary work of art, but it’s environment, story, and monster design provide a fascinating experience difficult to replicate. The environment leaves you wondering where on earth you are, and what on earth happened here. And to top if off, there’s the mystery of where your family has gotten off to; the combines mystery should be enough to keep you playing. The combat isn’t complicated, but it’s not easy, either. Combat in this game is about time management; you’ll face a number of monsters at once, and you’ll have to do as much damage as you can while blocking their attacks. However, you’ll have to be careful not to kill any of them until your focus meter fills up, or you’ll loose out on valuable parts. It’s not expensive, and I suggest you pick it up when you have the chance. You won’t regret it; even if you decide you don’t like the game, you won’t have lost a great deal of money.
  • Love it!

    By SquareMike95
    This is my favorite phone game so far! The developers are all geniuses (aside from the one that decided to create the battle on the Mountain Summit clouds. Yes, you - you know who you are 😏) Edit: The specific battle stated above is ridiculously hard compared to the rest of the battles and it’s almost impossible to win if you have an iPhone X/XS because the developers haven’t updated it so that it needs 2 swipes from the bottom to close the app and return to the home screen, so when you try to make long and fast swipes to kill the monsters in this tight time limit, you end up suspending the app and losing all that precious time ugh...
  • A fun and unique experience

    By ColinT games
    The art, music, and play style all come together in this colorful, unnerving experience. It’s sort of a blend of old school D&D PC games like Eye of the Beholder, mixed with some Ocarina of a Time kind of puzzles, and Metroid-vania backtracking and exploration. A satisfying game to play, solve, and conquer.
  • Auto map still destroying the atmosphere

    By tjader416
    Awesome game So awesome I’m putting up with the rude interruption to “rate this game” that came up during the game. That, I can forgive. However, the next thing I cannot. I previously suggested the auto map be “hideable”. I was ignored. The issue was not addressed. Accordingly I will be giving a rating of one star until this is fixed. Not because it’s a bad game. Because some corporate zombie is trying to be a game designer. You see, games never used to have auto maps. Then came along Metal Gear Solid which relies on the codec map to make the game playable since you can only see so much of the field and being able to see enemy fov is crucial. Maybe MGS was not the first, that’s beside the point. The point is that MGS used it as a key gameplay element. All other games that have a constantly visible map are treading dangerous waters IMO. Most games (rightly so) make this feature OPTIONAL. The fun of an adventure game is to immerse yourself in the world. Immersion is impossible when the game is constantly showing you a logical schematic (the automap). The temptation of playing the game through the map and not looking at the visual field is irresistible to the subconscious brain. Of course if you are attempting a speed run a map is a nice visual aid, but speed-running is a niche application. No, putting an auto map on the screen does not make the game more accessible to a wider audience, Mr. Corporate Zombie. It just destroys the authenticity of the experience. A simple “hide auto map” switch in the options is all I ask for. 5 minutes of a coder’s work day. I asked once nicely but my request was ignored, and on top of that I was asked to give a review of the game WHILE I WAS PLAYING THE FLIPPING GAME so have a very one star day, thank you.

    This game needs an UPDATE ASAP, when you open the mini map it won’t let you exit that also goes for your characters stats
