About three hours in, it's great so far.
You guys did an amazing job porting this to mobile. I feel like this game was made for it. Thank you! I bought it before and I’m happy I bought it again.
Just bought it but I pirated it before, one of the best games I’ve ever played. Deserves game of the year every year. Would give 6/5 but iTunes wildin.
This game plays extremely well here. Whether you use touch or controller, the experience is sound and wonderful. I definitely suggest downloading this game and at least giving it a try. It’s well worth the time.
This game should be played with a controller after a certain point. Touch controls just don't allow for the movements needed to play through all the elements well. And they only added support for some functions.... What was the point in that? I stopped playing, it was annoying getting up constantly just to touch the phone screen.
I admittedly don’t write many positive reviews, however this game was amazingly well done. It’s beautiful and immersive & I hope if you’re reading this you enjoy it too!
I played this a while back, and now that I’m revisiting it, it still amazes me how good this game is.
Great game honestly
One of the most atmospheric games I have ever played. Best. In-game. narrator. ever. He truly sells the experience, I need him to narrate my life. Do yourself a favour and play this game with a great pair of headphones. This and Transistor are two of my favourite games ever, a visual and auditory masterpiece. The gameplay is great too, iOS controls are good and don’t take much away from the experience. My only issue is that my hands hide part of the screen and you don’t truly get to appreciate the art because everything is so small, nitpicks really. BUY THE GAME! It’s worth every cent.
The artwork and music is honestly top notch, and as crisp as if you played on your pc. In comparison to the computer version, I’d say that this one’s gameplay is less satisfying (more of a four star than five). Because there are no keyboard controls, all of the weapons just kind of auto lock onto the closest enemy, and keep jumping to another one once the enemy is dead. I couldn’t figure out a way to get it to lock onto the enemy that I’d want to hit, without just having the Kid shoulder roll closer to it. That means that even when you first start the game without any add-ons to your weapons, the game is almost laughably easy. There were also some weapons, like the dueling pistols or fang repeater, that I rarely used in the computer version, that became really useful in this version. Overall, it’s still a deeply satisfying game that still allows for most of the functionality of the original.
