We've seen an issue with the candle crafting - some users aren't starting with the right ingredients.

Was there anything else specific with the tutorial that you didn't like?

So far I am fairly impressed. It's a MMO on mobile with good controls, depth, features and its Free-to-Play but has very inoffensive IAP.

I have vastly preferred Junk Jack to Minecraft Pocket and Deepworld is more like Junk Jack, but still quite original.

The worlds are not massive but there's so many of them and you can create your own. What's awesome is that you can choose to keep your own world cutoff as a private haven or open it so friends and travelers can see it. You can get guardians to protect it from being pillaged by visitors or leave it as a Wild West setting.

The graphics look impressive on my iPad mini, with cool lighting effects and animations. Your character has a jet pack to help him move about easily and the floating controls make this really work well on a touch screen.

The UI is nice and does a good job at avoiding clutter. The inventory and expanded world info are easy to access while floating text allows you to keep in a conversation without totally blocking out portions of the screen. The quick access tool kit, general info on your character and location are also up on the screen at all times.

There's a huge variety of items, resources, crafting recipes and best of all tons of different mobs. They are drawn well and actually look fairly menacing as they creep out of the dark after you. Also since the game takes place in a post apocalyptic setting, there is dangerous weather to contend with in the form of acid rain. Worlds you venture in to may be blanketed in it but you can build filters to reduce or eliminate the hazard. Until then you must take cover. The worlds that are generated have all kinds of things to discover and make simply exploring worth the experience.

The dialogue is humourous and you can tell that this game has a lot of love put into it. Hope to see more Touch Arcade members in there. It's definitely a gem in my book.
