I agree with others who didn’t give high marks for the controls. If I had a handheld gaming device, Control liked in Nintendo switch or Xbox. I know I could do much better. The tilting back-and-forth starts to get tiring on the arms and the speed that the creatures jump to tap the right one starts to frustrate you as you miss them or feel close to getting the alien and then it gets far away from missing targets where you can’t catch up anymore I don’t think the effort to reward ratios are built well. And like some of the other reviews said, I felt like my adhd (if I would even call it that as I’ve never been clinically, diagnosed ) got worse out of frustrations at times. Many say This is way over priced and I def agree. If you set the price point lower, maybe more people could participate who otherwise find the subscription too much. But I guess they look at it from a clinical piin of view that if this really works it could save money over traditional therapy. I only played a few days, so I cannot give an objective response as to whether I received any noticeable benefit and I’m not going to pay over $100 post trial tp find out.
U need to authorize every time through 3d party service. I don’t like it. Second time I forgot password, email for refresh didn’t come and I canceled sub :)
Not making it clear that all access to the app is behind a paywall until after the user signs up for an account is not a good practice. Neither is having the only payment option for an app designed for people with memory issues autopay.
I downloaded because the idea sounded interesting. It also seemed to be marketed as a OTC (over the counter) drug concept. At start it said no trial use without giving a credit card number. I declined and deleted the app. Without knowing what you’re getting into, someone with extreme ADHD will probably forget to cancel. This makes it feel like a ploy instead of a helping aid.
It isn’t easy to commit to playing a seemingly repetitious video game for 25 minutes daily without knowing if there will be a payoff. For me there has been a payoff in spades. Even when I have a lot on my plate, I no longer feel overwhelmed. My productivity has increased by at least 25%. There was a learning curve because this was my first ever video game. But I stuck with it and now can honestly report that playing this game was made a noticeable improvement in my adhd life
I'd love to try it but... I have ADHD! Do you really think I'm going to remember to cancel if I don't play it or like it? I don't do trials that require payment upfront for that reason. So, I just deleted the app without even trying it. If y'all choose to change that process, I'd love to give it a shot! Three stars because I couldn't try it but it sounds like a good idea.
Good game. I like the concept, and the research behind it. The game is hard, and if you lose focus, the game makes it difficult to win, which is the point. The algorithm tries to progressively extend the difficulty to require more focus each game, and constantly optimizes to be on the cusp of your current ability. I’ve only played it for a few days, but I’m already seeing a little bit of benefit. Hopefully it continues. It’s a bit expensive, but for the benefits, it’s on par with other treatments. We’ll worth it imo. My only suggestion is adding more cosmetics. I’m not far along, but I can already tell I’ll run out of things to spend gold on within a month or two. Maybe add more “legendary” skins, for a higher price point? Or add vehicle skins? Maybe the ability to pay some gold to have the maps (or obstacles) look different?
The game design needs to include an initial test to see what colors the player can easily differentiate from one another. I win noticeably more games when I’m asked to aim for the blue creatures because my brain registers the color. When asked to aim for red or yellow, I often can’t tell the difference until it’s too late. If the game would cater itself to the user and choose three colors that are easily recognized, it might be more usable and enjoyable.
There is a high paywall that blocks you from any content. You cannot even sample the game without paying or a “cancel in this time span or we charge you hundreds”. I feel like the only giving us an option for a trial on the year subscription or an automatic charge for only the 1 year option is predatory on people with ADHD. Will absolutely post this on all ads I continue to see to warn any other ADHDer who might be interested.
