I gifted this game to my Mom because she loves these types of games (7th Guest, Myst, included). She loved it. I peeked over her shoulder and the production values look fantastic.

Any other suggestions for games of this style on the iPad? Are there any others? I saw Windowsill mentioned earlier in the thread, so I'll check that out.

Not really, this game is pretty unique. I also gifted it to my mum (after I completed it). :-)

And yet only four stars. I guess it needed more purple or something ;-p

This game is a neat puzzler. As others have mentioned, it's a box-inside-a-box-etc. and makes for some fun puzzling about its arcane mechanisms. Its well-presented and polished looking, but I have two problems with this game that keep it in three-star territory for me. First, it's much too easy. None of the puzzles are particularly devious, so thorough exploration and yields a path to progress pretty directly. Secondly, it's much much too short, especially for the $5 price tag. I've gotten maybe four hours of fun out of this before I reached the end. If you're on the fence about this, wait for a sequel or a price drop.

If I can't reach level 10 (that f'in level 10!!) in Bejeweled would that mean I'd at least get more then a couple hours out of this one? So many people are saying how short it is and that they wants more. But is it short short or short as in it's so good we just want moaar!! ...thing. How many boxes are there?

Four. I'd like more, but I feel like I paid for more already. I paid $1 for Jetpack Joyride and got dozens of hours of entertainment out of it (and now that's free). I paid $5 here and got 4-5 hours, if that.

Thanks, so one box sort of contains multiple puzzles you have to solve to get to the next box then?

Started playing this a few days ago after seeing so many recommendations. I'm up to the final stage (I think), and I'm loving it. Never played a room escape type game with production values this high (and that didn't have Engrish text), so this is a really neat experience.

Definitely recommended.
