Depends if you're a fan of just doing puzzles, or having a story to back it up. Violett lacks a coherent story, according to the review by Adventure Gamers. Has good puzzles though.

Edit: And apparently the iOS controls are pretty bad, if not downright unusable in certain situations, according to the reviews. I can't comment on that as I played the Steam version.

Was about to buy until I read about the bad controls AFTER the update to fix them. Bummer.

A coherent story is a must for me, so I will pass. Thanks a lot for the input!

That is disappointing, the trailer gives the impression the story is very good. Well, since it is more puzzle driven and has bad controls, I'll pass.

I'm tired of paying for unfinished games.

Too bad. It looks really nice, though.

Well, I made the mistake of buying this yesterday when I saw that it was on sale, without seeing this thread first.

I can fully attest to the horrid controls and obscure nature of the puzzles.

Uninstalling now, and as one says, "live and learn".

It is sad, because the game looks good, and appears so promising.
