Gameplay is okay with controller. Low battery consumption. Touch controls don’t work as well. But selecting dialog choices is bad with controller. And pushing start doesn’t allow access to inventory/quests screen. What is the yellow bar with a skeleton hand icon? I get hit and it goes down so it’s like hp, but also goes down when I use the upgraded claw. Sometimes it regens and sometimes it doesn’t. Flying hammer doesn’t hit enemies even though it passes right through them. Sometimes it hits only in the way back. Do I want bad luck? It’s very confusing. I turn in a quest and just ask for a blessing and then he gives me a blessing and it gives me bad luck. What?? Then I’m fighting and randomly a ghost attacks me and says I lose some items?? There is some purple eye symbol. What is this? Bad luck indicator? Forge is not explained. When can I upgrade my weapon? What do I need? Quests should have a direction indicator. Game is also slow to start up. This game needs some cleanup. Has potential.
So I’ve been playing this game for a while. Frustrated at times - until my brain finally realized that I could use the PS4 Controller- then things took off! I have not stopped playing - my neck is sore & my legs are numb from sitting where I am; so that I may focus on the game much better than I have been. Everything about it is AMAZING! Great game, great story, amazing music and gameplay! A definitive 5 Star Worthy game. However, I have reached the “Deadwoods” (not sure what they are called; but it’s the area where the ghosts & eerie atmosphere is the setting. It played as the rest of the game has done so far. But...suddenly there was a lot of strange interference, screen slowing & jumping around. I thought maybe it was my internet or phone -even this it is brand new iPhone XR-I could play despite the glitching. It then continued, until it finally froze up altogether. HELP! This is not a complaint, this is just to let you know that at this level something bad is happening. I closed the game out. Will reload it again. But I wanted to pass on the info. Here I go reloading the game.
This game really defines what the Apple Arcade standard should be! The controls are fine when you get used to them, and the variety of abilities makes this game near endless with replayability! The always random level design with a ton of voiced dialogue makes a cleverly made rpg with new freshness every time. Though some bosses will take one or two runs to get the hang of, it never feels unfair, and trying out the many abilities Ivan obtains on his quest can make a huge difference in the a boss fight! The game really encourages you to stay in character, as Ivan’s bad luck increases if you make a decision that doesn’t match your previous decisions. I loved the implementation of the bad luck meter, and it really affects your game!!! I found it really interesting, as you have to think about when you use your items. If the meter gets too full, use lose a ton of equipment! That being said, all the text on the screen is extremely small (on phone). Also, on one of the first quests to get an item, I got stuck, as I thought I had to talk to someone in town, but I couldn’t. This wasn’t a bug or anything, as the real way to complete the quest was to venture in the forest. Overall great game and very fun! Thanks!
The game isn’t easy but the impact of choices (including the role of the witches and their impact on your luck) is original. The graphics and music are awesome. As others have mentioned, there are some rough edges when it comes to responsiveness. I am a web developer and am aware of the complications of making an application for totally different form factors. I enjoy playing the game most on my iPad mini; the text and button sizes seem just right. However, the prompt when loading the game reads, “Press any button to start,” which shows some corner cutting on the part of the design work. Some variations are necessary to make the game enjoyable throughout the device lineup. Startup time is quite long, which has honestly led me to switch to another game several times when I just have a few minutes to play. I understand that this game isn’t trying to be that type of passive experience, but there seem to be some performance issues that if resolved would make first impressions more solid. I know the developers are interested in feedback. I appreciate the work they have done to bring a great game idea to this platform and introduce a great folktale from Eastern Europe to the world.
I have had to start from the beginning 3 times now. Every time I reopen the app it says “game save file corruption” “file is either corrupt or missing” so now I don’t even want to play because the next time I open up the game I’ll have to start all over again.. please fix ASAP! Playing on iPhone X on newest iOS! Response: Developer.. yes I only have one Game Center account so it’s definitely logging me into the same one every time.. and as far as iCloud, I have a ton of games and they all save perfectly fine so iCloud space is not the issue either. Hope this issue can be fixed, I saw another comment that was having the same problem as me. I would love to play this but it is pointless until the save issue gets fixed. 2nd Response: Turns out it was my iCloud storage that was full. I made some space and it saved perfectly fine. Do other games save to the phone or something other than the iCloud? Because this is the first game I’ve had save problems with, just curious. Thanks for the advice, game is amazing! Excited to play more than 10 minutes lol 😊
