App description: Hiversaires is a cryptic point & click adventure game in a textless world.

Created for the players who remember the times when you had to draw maps, the dark labyrinth of Hiversaires features an original Aliceffekt soundtrack to guide you through its networks of corridors entangled.

Is this just a maze or does it contain puzzles and such?

I'm not treading far behind. Won't be able to right now, but I'll definitely be all over this in a few hours. Do let us know if the game is as phenomenal as it looks.

Okay so there's not much in the way of story or even tutorial. There's no menu as well (Everything is done in game). You can move in three directions (left, right and center) by tapping the corresponding area of the screen. It can lead to so weird angles and it's not perfect but it works.

The "puzzles" are quite complicated so far. It's almost exclusively based on some weird symbols that you find everywhere.
Graphically the artstyle is amazing and full retina.

The game automatically saves when you go through a checkpoint.

Warning: the game has a bug that is really annoying and possibly game breaking •••Spoiler:   Sometimes You can't switch tye symbols you have

Solution: Reset your game by killing it in the taskbar.

Okay the game is quite short (I finished the game in an hour I think) and has quite a serious bug (see my previous post). Despite those flaws, the artstyle is gorgeous, the music and atmosphere are also top notch.
But the abrupt ending and the huge amount of backtracking makes this point and click experience a rather forgettable one albeit enjoyable while it lasts.

The art style itself is dragging me on the buy button. Minimal and atmospheric, even if too short..i think i'll get it for my iPad
