I previously wrote a negative review whining about how the original .mobi and .epub formats were better than this app but I changed my mind. Playing it on my iPhone 4s, this is pretty darn cool. The text boxes work well, and overall the game plays nicely with a good overall pace and layout. Unfortunately this layout doesn't work so well on the larger screen of the iPad. Also the graphics are not updated to full-size retina versions so they look a little crummy on my iPad Air 2. Overall, though, playing it on the phone this is really nice, and I'll spend hours on the train reading it. I'm curious if I can find that weird Keanu reeves drawing from the original.. I forget how to get there. Anyway, great app.

A hilarious and captivating story combined with creative choices make for a very pleasant reading experience. My only complaints are that it would be nice if I could go back to where I was after reaching the the stats, and, more importantly, I would really appreciate if Christopher Slowe's choice map was actually readable on the iPhone. When I try to zoom in, the image quality degrades to the point where it is unreadable. Either way, I throughly enjoyed the app.

This is a fun little game book but it woudl be even better if it had the vocie that reads it to you that the PC verson had. Maybe it could be an opitional download that could be done inside the app so those that don't want to increase the size of the app don't have to. I would also like to be able to zoom in on the picture that shows all the diffrent paths without it getting grainy and unreadable.

A fantastic way to enjoy the Hamlet idea space - experiment with what might have happened if Shakespeare went off in one of billions of other directions. I’ve just started playing with this, but I love it already. How could Shakespeare have written just one play with the possibilities of this material? I’m looking forward to really digging into this! Thanks Ryan North!

Played game for about two minutes, now useless. I bought the app yesterday. After a single event I chose to visit the “art gallery” and turn the sound on. these actions are meant to always be available and you can return back to your place. But no matter how often I select “back to the story,” I keep being sent to the art gallery. I have tried choosing other menu items, quitting and relaunching, nothing works. Sent feedback with repro steps to developer using their web form, received my cc but no contact yet. Will update if they resolve.
