I think I'm going to enjoy this game, but everything is messed up on my phone. It clicks a bit above my finger. The menu options aren't all on the screen. I can't read the in game tutorials because they are slightly off the screen as well.

It looks adorable, but I can't play it at all. I have an iPhone 6s+. I hope to see updates that fix the problems!

Oh, that's worrying.
Could you post a screenshot for me? Or mail it to b.stolk at gmail?

You play it in landscape orientation, I assume, not in portrait, I take it?\

I would love to put out a fix, once I understand what is going on.

It's working on iPad, I've only played it briefly but I'm enjoying it so far, hopefully I will have more time for it tomorrow!

Merry Christmas Bram,

I was pretty excited to see that you were the developer as I've been a fan since the first Little Crane. This looks a lot different to the stuff you normally do, very intrigued and looking forward to checking it out. All the best in the coming new year!

No idea what this is like, so any gameplay video?

Edit: Hum, free game, so nevermind!

I have a 6s+ as well, so I'm assuming these pictures are why he's talking about. Everything is "off." It's like the screen has been drug down to the bottom right, meaning clicks affect up and to the left.

Thanks Yerti!

So yeah, I put a fix out, which is now in Apple's review queue.
Hopefully it gets cleared soon, so it will work on iPhone6+ too.
I also expect it may malfunction on iPad PRO too.

Hi Son of Anarchy,

Thank you for your support!
Yeah, it's quite different from my previous games.
I hope you like it.

Happy new year,
