Very cool game, awesome art and atmosphere. The game plays great, just hoping it doesn't get too repetitive.

Ha, yeah already bought and it is indeed very good



I had bought this to support the dev and save it for when I get an iPad. But decided to give it a try and maybe I just have lower standards for what entails good performance, but the game performs excellently on my iPhone 4. Slight lag here and there, but not common and definitely not game-breaking

I like the look of this, but it seems like it might be quite short?

Like Her Story? Try Contradiction for iPad!

A few favourites: Contradiction. Desktop Dungeons. Til Morning's Light. Knights of Pen & Paper (1+2). Drylands. Paint it Back.

As long as you unlock all the moves and don't get stuck playing Easy mode, you should be fine. I only play on Hard myself, easy and normal are too boring. Thinking of adding a new difficulty mode, but I should give players time to master the basics first.

Are you playing on the first gen iphone 4?
As long as the device has 512 MB of memory, it should be ok, but I dropped support for the iphone 4 because the framerate was too choppy. iPod 5, iPhone 4s, and iPad2 are the lowest end devices I would recommend to keep it stable at 60 fps.

Kinda odd to read that from the dev himself. Shouldnt you be doing something about that instead of just suggesting the hard mode?
