I’m a big fan of this developer’s games so I was very happy to see this on the App Store yesterday! I have completed the game twice now and I liked it a lot. They seem to have sorted out the problem with too many ads in earlier games and now the balance is so much better. The graphics are the same hand painted style which work so well but too dark in places. I had to have my brightness up full. I like the variety of puzzles and how challenging some of them are. Also the story is intriguing.
I do have some negatives though... A few times clues were too vague.
The puzzle with the coloured password numbers broken and mixed up - I didn’t see a clue explaining the order the numbers should be in, so that was trial and error.
I never understood how to work out the password for Ze Ya locker. I had to buy clues for just that one puzzle which was annoying! Even with the answer, it didn’t help me to understand. Providing the answer without explanation is not helpful guys!
The Dream machine (is that the right name?) on 1st floor of apartment block required no skill - it didn’t matter whether you hit the arrow button multiple times or not at all, the outcome was the same! (Intentional or not?)
24 floors to inspect to find the four useful ones was annoying and time wasting. 10 would have been enough!
The gears/rope/bucket contraption in apartment 22 bedroom - the gears come away when trying to place the rope. You have to be very precise to make this not happen which is difficult when this particular area is so tiny! Why couldn’t that be a zoomed in area?
No visual feedback when tapping - I don’t know what the correct terminology for that is - when you tap and see a small dot or something. I like that being there, especially with my temperamental stylus as i can then see it’s working!
Finally some glitches. The boat arriving at the dock to take you to the ship arrives twice!
When going down the ladder from the top of the lighthouse, you are taken back to the top and have to go down again.
Sorry the negatives seem long! In the overall effect of the game, they are fairly minor as I think your work is terrific and I thank you for the hard work and dedication of your team.
