iph 4s. Yes, rebooted after install and reinstalled. It just seems to crash.

Maybe it's just me but I'm starting to find some of the escape games completely unplayable on iphone. Too small and talk about glitchy.

WaveA games are the exception - always decent, work well and easy to read and view.

But...the other few I dl from HUANG ZHIQIANG ( I've dl 3 over the last few months last a second and are deleted straight away) and Mobest media are dreadful. Maybe they're just suitable for ipads or bigger screens?

I'd find it hard to believe by now, but if you don't already have it, Forever Lost: Episode 1 HD is currently free!

I have an iPod Touch 4, so these days trying to play anything on them is dreadful. As a result I stick to my iPad as much as possible. I have played a couple of escape games on my iPod lately that seemed okay, though.

I really liked Hidden Runaway and it made me want to buy the original PC games. Have been leaving hints for Santa but I can't see that happening. Only problem is, the iphone/pad spoils you for game play. It is so much easier to play on these devices. Enjoyed Lego Haary Potter on iphone but got the second on Wii and didn't enjoy it as much. It's the convenience I love and the touch screen play. Even the DS has taken a back seat now. I just wish they would bring the titles that I love to ios

You have to find hidden objects in the dark while a timer is running and you lose "points" if you make a wrong click? I think I'll pass LOL

Has anyone here played Whisper of Fear: the Cursed Doll? If so, is the game recommended?

Has anyone tried FinalCastle yet? I know it's only three bucks, but I hesitate to pay that much for a game from a developer when that's their only game. The screens look pretty cool, though.
