MFi controllers are supported, the DLC "Road to Gehenna" is not in yet but could be added in the future if the game sells well.

Does anyone know if this game is "on rails", or can you freely explore the environment in 3D?

This is one of the greatest puzzle games I have ever played along with The Witness, both of which just gave the app store the double whammy. I can't believe I have these games on my phone. The Talos Principle is a very special puzzle game that explores the concept of what it truly means to be a human being, and it does it better than any other game in many clever ways, but I do not want to say much more. Kick back, settle in, and really take your time with this one. Make sure you interact with every computer station you see, and explore the environment to maybe find hidden stuff or more importantly, the audio logs. It will all pay off by the game's beautiful ending.

You wouldn't believe that this was done by the team behind the excellent and over the top throwback Serious Sam, a much more mindless experience than The Talos Principle. This is a smart game by very smart people that can be enjoyed by everybody if they have the time to give. I hope you guys give this game the chance it deserves.

Instabuy! Downloading now. Cheaper than I thought too. Looking forward to this one. Almost bought it on PS4 last night since it just went on sale but I love my mobile puzzles.

Does this have cloud save? Not sure if I want to play it on iPhone 7+ or iPad.
