You gotta realise Sanuku writes his ramblings whilst typing looking in a mirror like a modern day Da Vinci. He meant "tap"

On topic, I bought it. With my backlog I should be able to play it by the time it goes free next Christmas.

Game Impressions

I'm about thirty minutes in, and this is fantastic! It reminds me a lot of the classic LucasArts games, and not only because it has a similar Caribbean feel to Monkey Island. The graphics are great, the way the puzzles are unfolding is nice (several going at once so you don't get stuck on one thing) and both the graphics and the voice acting are top notch.

This seems like a total bargain. I'm curious how long it is, but with a game this good, even a couple of hours' playtime will be well worth it.

Cheers.

The stylised African mask motif does lend a decidedly Grim Fandango-esque air to the proceedings.

Had no idea they were porting this to iOS. Played this one on PC. Highly recommended. This has always been kind of an under-the-radar game for some reason, although I believe it did get some awards or at least good reviews. Looking forward to episode 2.

If I remember right, it's pretty comparable to the length of a Telltale game episode. Maybe even a touch longer? Regardless, definitely worth more than 99 cents.
