Working for me.
It ignores the sound mute switch on my phone though.

No idea what this game is. Had a quick go and it's got the movement and action controls around the wrong way from conventional (southpaw?)

Wasnt keen on the controls as they're to me the wrong way round, should be controls on the left, buttons on the right. Tried it but just couldnt get into it due to the controls

Just had an email back from the dev who said theres an update in a few days with the option to reverse the controls so thats great.

I vaguely remember this from the Amiga years of the early 90's. Free to try, 69p to unlock the full game

Same here. Black screen iPad 2 with iOS 7.12. Hopefully Mr. Cook reads this and fixes the problem soon.

OMG I loved this game. Unique mix of storyline and dexterity/puzzle action. The 8-bit graphics were already dated back then, but the creepy atmosphere was top-notch. @GWARMAXX Did you ever play this on Christmas day? Only then there's a christmas tree in the foyer. Nice easter egg ;-)

Now playing: Tokaido, Jaipur, Race for the Galaxy, Potion Explosion, Lanterns, Splendor, Onirim
Waiting for: Star Realms fix for Steam purchases!

Just been there, amazing! They even consider a first-person-version. Sadly they're still far from reaching their financial objective. I'd join in, weren't it for the fact that I practically do not play on PC anymore since I got an iPad.

edit: Just received an email from the main programmer, who told me he would submit a fix for us iOS 7 users soon *sigh*
