I've heard lots of good things about this game, but I have never played it before.
Can anyone tell me if it's more platformer or more puzzler?
FWIW, I don't really go for platformers, where it's maybe clear what to do, but difficult to actually do it, because of things like timing jumps perfectly, etc.
I prefer puzzlers, where I can take my time to scratch my head and figure things out, then get the AHA! lightbulb moment, and then easily achieve it, and the controls don't inhibit me from doing so.
Thanks for any replies!

(Please note, these are all my own opinions. Don't get all over my ass and lambast me for having an opinion different to yours, mmmkay?)

Very surprised to see this game on mobile!

Agreed that pedigree alone is sufficient to have this to play it, especially if you do not access to the original on PC.

For completionist gamers among us, however, take note that the later puzzles in this game are incredibly difficult, to the point that it was later discovered that some of them could not be completely by a single individual. There are also puzzles that are tied to real-world events. There are many YouTube videos and web articles on this topic already. Even at the risk of minor spoilers, may be worth to take a look before diving deep into this game if you intend to truly complete it.

I would say go for it, it's been a while since I played it but I remember a LOT of lightbulb moments and not many frustrating platforming elements. It's more about working out how to use the environment to get to where you want to go than precision platforming.

I also don't remember a great deal of having to replay bits because I died, which is something I don't like with platformers - can't quite remember how it handled saves/lives etc tho.

Did you finish the first level? There will be a button for it after that

Guess its bugged. I have third button in the between those two on top right corner

Edit: Unless the map is an item you need to pick up. I think I picked up some other things than shards.
