Press forward with heart. There is no way back now.

AS.

Loved it! I can't wait for the next one. Unfortunately, I have to :/

While I wait for next one are there any other games on the App Store similar to this one?

Wow, this is very brilliant.

Had a go at this on my new iPad and had to finish it all in one go. Definitely something that looks and feels very right. Amazing job, kudos to the developers.

Nothing remotely close, really. I'd love to see more like this, particularly with a bit more story.

Awesome game !

So much details, great graphics ! The game really feels nice to play !

For people asking for similar games, I don't think there is any.

But, there are a lot of great "point 'n click" games on iOS :
Forever Lost, 1113 (3 episodes), Machinarium, Antrim Escape (3 episodes), Broken Sword (2 episodes), Lost City

I'm really enjoying this game too. Good stuff and well worth the sale price I paid, probably full price too.

Just finished the game yesterday night and it is really a great game !
The most beautiful game I've done so far on my iPad.

Just a bit too easy at the end, but designing and balancing puzzles like these must be quite hard.

And this is version 1.0 of the game. I found absolutely no bug or bad spelling. Great work !

Is there any chance this could go universal or at least get a separate iPhone/iPod touch app?
