App description: If only I could go home early is a pixel wind adventure puzzle game. Its about a young man who is a workaholic and does not spend time with his wife. As a result, his wife launched a retaliation against him, playing dead.

The player must unlock the puzzle designed by the wife who is a SOHO novelist in every level. Otherwise, the game is over. The posture of dead body, the painting on the wall, and so on, everything in the house may be the key to unlock the puzzles. The biggest secret of the wife is waiting to be lift the veil.

Enjoying it so far

This is an odd one.

I bought it this morning and played the first five levels during the last few minutes of my lunch.

It looks like there are only 20 levels, but so far each one gets a bit more complex.

The English traslations are passable so far, but some of the text flies by quickly.

So far the game takes place entirely in your apartment with your wife. I don’t know if more areas will open up.

It’s weird, but a fun kind of weird, and probably the best 99 I’ve spent on a game in quite some time.

I’ll play some more and give more detailed impressions later.


I tried level six on my break...

I enjoyed the first 5 levels. But on the 6th level, nothing I’m doing is working. I can’t pick up the glass from the table. In the kitchen I can interact with the juicer and the fridge, but nothing else. I open the bottom fridge door and can see a lemon that I’m guessing needs to go in the juicer, but I can’t pick it up. When I try, I stoop and scoop at the floor but get nothing. If I try a bit higher, I close the fridge door.

All I can seem to do is pet the cat, and much like in real life that’s not getting me anywhere.

I’ll work at it again later, but the user interface is starting to get annoying.

(Update) I’m playing the game on a 12.9 iPad Pro with the latest iOS. I just tried it on my iPhone 6S, same iOS, and it worked. I could pick up everything I needed to and quickly beat the 6th level. I guess it’s not compatible with my iPad.

Hopefully there will be an update, because I hate gaming on my phone.
