It's been out on the PC for a short while with pretty good reviews. Some comments on the control scheme but that could be very different for iOS. Definitely an amazing release day!

WOah! Another escheresque game like Monument Valley, and this looks so good. Um... I wonder what's going to happen to my one-app-per-week policy... O_o

@EP

I'm surprised you lasted this long; it's been a great effort so don't beat yourself too much when it inevitably ends.

ow didn't know bout that, thanks for that. so here is the answer from developers youtube channel to all the confusion between this new version and the old one(on the pc a year ago):

Quote:
The version that you played (about a year ago) is what we now concider as a demo. Back in 2011 Back To Bed was created in 6 weeks as a student project. Alot of water has passed under the bridge since then and some of the developers from the orignial team decided to bring this game a step further. That is why you suddently see it again. And as far as the difference between the two versions goes, I can tell you that there has been a lot of changes: New and improved level designs, a lot of new levels including a new harbour themed world, a new hard-mode, significantly bug fixes and controller improvements, new art assets and animations, achievements and more awesome handrawn art. I hope you're not still confused Stay tuned!

So a quite Monument-Valley-esque title huh...it looks pretty damn nice from the screenshots. Does this make a better game (if possible)?

I'm just lurking here...menacingly!

Ooh nice! Been waiting for this one, insta-buy! I did play through Monument valley, but that game really was a drag at times, slow, really easy, you kinda had to constantly wait for your character to move in place to finish a puzzle. Hope this is a bit better on that front.
