    Interesting Game! Finished the game! Not what I was expecting, but it was all good. Combat was different, but especially hard with the Trigons and Puzzles was easy at the start, but very complex later. Also seemed short, but could clearly see the amount of effort put into the creation of this game. Amazing Game..! Although I am experiencing a bug where I got 99% instead of 100%. Full Review

    No bugs yet on Nexus 5 I'm at 43% with no issues so far. Just got to wait a soul sapping 10 days for the full moon. Love the music, SFX, aesthetic, ambience, use if accelerometer, everything - I love everything about this game. It is intelligent and beautifully crafted. Thank you so much. More games like this please! Full Review

    Awesome music, Cool idea... The music is awesome. The interface is (kinda) charmingly unique. Only problem is, on my oldish, smallish phone it keeps crashing. I'm at 23% into the game, and randomly it crashes over and over. I suspect (hope) the version for PC on Steam would be more stable. -- Furry cows moo and decompress. Full Review

    It's a wonderful adventure It makes you laugh, maybe a little sad at times. The game is amazing with music and the build up to the end it's just great. Best app game hands down. Be sure to have your charger tho as it likes to eat up energy! Full Review

    The facination I have with this game is incredible, there isn't a game quiet like this one. I love each feature and I love how every time I play it again, I find something new! This game has great music, inspiring art and music that just can't be ignored. I give this game a 999999999999999999/10. That being said each game will have a hating audience, and the amount of bad reviews I come across is insane, mostly because of glitches and bugs I've never come across. If you like 2d pixel art, soothing music, and you have a good sense of patience, then buy the game. But if first-person shooters are more your style, then don't unless you want to try something new. P.s the moon stage feature is AWESOME. Full Review

    Interesting game with some great sound design This is one of the more unique mobile games I've ever played. It's also one of the few without micro transactions, so I appreciate that. It's art style is crude but really charming. The best thing about the game is the incredible sound design. Everything from the sound effects to the music is expertly done. The only flaw I can see is the controls are a little wonky and you never really get used to them. Full Review

    Same glitch at megatome If you get the megatome, die, then respawn the game becomes unresponsive. Ill restart the game and make sure not to die to avoid the glitch but for now, one star. Probably 5 if they fix that plus their audio issue. Full Review

    What's going on with the sound? Just bought this. Had my eye on it for quite some time. Install it, lay in bed with headphones on, start game, glitchy annoying sound ruins whole experience. Watch youtube videos and realize this isn't supposed to be this way. Please update. Full Review

    Stick with it and be rewarded Charming graphics and excellent soundtrack make for an immersive world. Controls somewhat frustrating at first but those are part of the game's puzzles so don't give up. Solving a couple of puzzles requires repeated navigating through screens of uneventful scenery, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. Full Review

    Brian Newhouse Published date: October 19, 2017

    I've noticed a glitch at 9% when I obtained the megatome. I initially died when the beast thing awakened and came alive. Upon restarting the game after my death (where I left off), I could not move or do anything, as the screen and my touches have become unresponsive, and thus ended up having to reset the game and start all over. I finally did get the megatome, without dying, and the game continued onward. Please fix this. Great game so far though. Will rate higher once there is a fix. Full Review

    Lots of pretty visual and aural art! Fun gameplay and great story. Challenging enough to keep you playing for some time if you don't cheat! This will be my second play through -- it's an experience. If you mostly prefer those mindless candy crush style games, you don't qualify for this. It's a big boy/girl game. Full Review

    Phenomenal. My favorite mobile game of all time. There are many reviews about how boring it is, but the thing is, it simply isn't. It depends on what you're looking for in a game. If you want an atmospheric, intriguing, one of a kind game with a beautiful soundtrack, this is your deal. If you want heart thumping action, look elsewhere. Also: the dog is hilarious. Full Review

    Sound stopped stuttering and now it's back Ok so the sound is really good. For some reason it started working just fine. Maybe clear the ram before you play... any way good game devs. OK now it's back again when I'm using my head phones. Maybe it's a Bluetooth error.. dunno. But maybe we shall persevere. Full Review

    Save your money I love the uniqueness and scenery, however if I barely move my Galaxy S4 the screen changes to fight mode constantly. The controls need a remake. The fighting has no flavor(so far) and when I first started I would freeze at the part where there's an old man with the suit and snow. Thank you and please consider these suggestions. Full Review

    Sound isn't working right. Takes all the fun out of it. Seems like everyone is having the same issues. Wonder what the problem is? Hope they fix it soon. I think this is a great unique game but now it's unplayable. The bad reviews might hurt their sales. Please fix or explain what's going on.Thank you! Full Review

    Best Android Game! Beautiful, thought provoking, and fun. Good puzzles, good dialogue, GREAT music, challenging timing-based combat, and the coolest way of integrating real time and game time I've ever encountered. There were a few bugs but none that persisted after closing and reopening the app. Love it. Love it forever. Full Review

    Game doesnt work. Refund! So I downloaded the game and I think I would love the game very much but after I purchased and installed the game, the game doesn't work. It always crashes on the flash screen everytime I open the game. This is unfair! I contact the developer and he/they seem to not care. Full Review

    Eh So far I'm just finding it a bit boring and difficult. I hate waiting for the character to walk across the screen. It just takes too long! I also wish it wasn't quite do difficult. I need to look at a guide to play! Full Review

    Wow (Galaxy S4/ LG G4) This is easily my favorite game on the Android Market hands down. The graphics are incredible! I always play this hooked up to my Home Theater because the audio and the music are not only very high quality, they also fit together brilliantly. I've been playing for hours now but still find myself restarting the game just so I can hear "Lone Star" (easily on my top 5 for favorite songs in video games). This game deserves 5, no 6 stars! The story is also incredible. I love the narration and the choice of chara Full Review

    Audio problems. Please fix! I used to play this game all the time on my other devices all the time. Everything about the game is amazing. It is a must play when it comes to handheld games. I decided to download the application on my new nexus 5 device. The second I started it up the audio was all choppy and distorted. I instantly realized that this game revolves so much around the soundtrack and it isn't nearly as good with all this nonsense. Please fix this audio problem. If fixed my rating is a solid 5 stars.

    Game breaking big Game locked up at 9% after grabbing the block thing. I got caught by the hands, and when it returned me to grabbing the block, I can't move or do anything. Seems like it would be a great game if I can get past that. (Also, 9% seemed to come pretty quick. Barely got past the walkthrough part and already 9% done) Full Review

    Too frustrating to enjoy Enjoyed the music and art direction, but found some mechanics too frustrating to complete the game. Got to the final Dark Moon portion and was unable to access the stupid tree. Than you have to reset the moons each time? Passsssssss. Uninstalled ! Full Review

    Don't believe the hype I love immersive, artistic indie games that have good soundtracks, but sadly this isn't one of them. Its just pretty lame and isn't worth the price, I should have saved my money :( Full Review

    Dav Clark Published date: August 25, 2015

    Magical The game provides some great throwback play to games like Loom from Lucas arts, where spellcasting is a puzzle. Superbrothers, however, manage to create an even more engaging game mechanic through creative use of the touch interface. It gets a bit redundant, but push through and you may get to a place where that redundancy becomes the charm of the familiar. Also love that you power *down* instead of up! Full Review

    Kick Ass Game The people saying this is too boring are the kind of people that only have the mental capacity for a shootem' up at the arcade. This was one of the most interesting and beautiful games I've ever seen for an app. Full Review

    Unable to be played I was unable to enjoy the game as there is audio distortion, sounding fractured and reverberated. I was very much looking forward to trying it after hearing so many good reviews; however it is impossible for me to do so as is. I hope that something can be done to fix this or alternatively I'd appreciate a refund. Full Review

    Can't play! I know this is a great game, I have played it before and I'm sure of it. But it doesn't matter when you can't even start the game. I'm on a Xperia Z5, please fix or make a refund. The game stops in the first screen.. Full Review

    So bugged I have never been able to play this. I bought the game on my Galaxy S4 and it wouldn't work. Now I have a Galaxy S6 and it is still bugged. I can occasionally get the app to work after opening it 5 or more times, but normally it opens to a black screen or a frozen image of a record. There is no way a game that has been out this long shouldn't be playable on phones that can handle almost anything. Full Review

    I want to like this game I can tell the creators put a lot of work into the game, the style and graphics bring forth a unique experience with nostalgia. There are two main bugs, game locks up at 9% and the UI is sketchy at best. It takes over a dozen taps on the screen for even the most basic commands. Still happens after reinstal. Will give a more appropriate rating after issues are resolved. Full Review

It crashes without making it past the splash screen 100% of the time. I love this game and this is really frustrating. Devs are you listening? Full Review
