The save system has problems and it was more compatible with ios 7. From what I remember if you will upgrade your ios version, then you cannot play it at all. No support either. It's like they developed it for ios, maybe the sales numbers were disappointing and they abandoned it.
Sad..
It's a fantastic game and I am hoping it will get a sequel but if you cannot play it properly, then it doesn't matter how good it is. It's a broken game..
I agree I had bought this game day one as well and absolutely loved it. I played until it got broken a while back. This game had so much depth and promise and strategy. I do wish they'd make a sequel and also I wish someone would make a puzzle quest 3 (;

I think there's a bug very early on where you can get utterly stuck if you do things in a certain sequence, but once you got past that everything was gravy. Love this game, and I hate all these irritating puzzle bobble rip-offs. The sound bug must be the same thing that's afflicted NFS: Most Wanted and the like. I wonder if there's a single fix for all these games; they should pool their resources. I do think Apple should get more of the scorn than the game companies. It's not entirely their fault that Apple doesn't try to account for potentially screwing up games every time they update.

I actually found a cure for my issue. I went and google'd my problem, and found a post somewhere by someone who had the same problem. He said to double tap your character standing on the stone, not the object you are trying to open. I re-downloaded the game (and it had actually saved my previous game, miraculously) and tried this. Everything then started to work properly and I was able to advance in the game.

Actually came here in hope of news of a successor: this game is one of my all time favorite (iPhone!)-Games.

Was kind of shocked by the negative vibe in here. Well - Ubisoft certainly deserves nothing else.
But still - even though there are rough edges (subs totally wrong, long loading times, no decent explanation of "tricks" like the swipe to move, etc.) this game is so awesome I keep reinstalling it after just a couple of weeks.
I've finished it about 5 times by now. All on iPhone. And now I'm
Gonna reinstall it.

Greetings. Pug

For your interest:
I just installed it in iPad Pro (9.7) with ios 10.2. The game starts and plays but plays awful. First of all it has no music at all!!! ??? I checked the volume slider but no changes. It has only the ambience, e.g. the sound of wind and not the great music..
Secondly and more important is that the graphics are messed up. The units are downgraded and pixelated not like clear HD graphics. It seems that the resolution has been changed and the pixels are hurt to see.. Sad, we have retina display and the same resolution all these years except ipad pro 12.9 and for whatever reason it changed. This seems horrible. No support at all either. The support actually ended on 16 of July 2013.. Deleted..

Started playing this again, probably for the last time, as I'm sure it won't get updated to 64bit.
Such a good game...

I know! I love this game, and there is literally not even an imitation game copying these mechanics out there...well..there IS one...by Mobirix...but its just too much of a disappointment to enjoy.
I actually just got done playing through this again about 2 weeks ago. I originally played it on the Nintendo DS a looooong time ago...which was its original platform. The mobile version is much updated in comparison...as far as graphics go, but its such a classic...I just can't believe they never made a sequel...or that the core mechanics were never emulated in any other games...it boggles my mind, especially because it was a popular game, and even ended up on xbox arcade and I think also PS 3's store. I would be all OVER another game like this...as I'm sure many others would be.

Actually, there is one, but I'm not positive it is coming to iOS, since it is only in soft launch on Android. It's called Legend of Solgard. It's developed by King, which has another game using some, but not as many of the mechanics. That one is called Stellar: Galaxy Commander, and IS in soft launch on iOS.
