I have been waiting for this game for well over a YEAR, so expectations were understandably high. I rarely (in fact, never) visit the App Store looking to see what’s happening with a specific game, so this one had high standards to meet. And it met them. It’s got a great blend of good design (both game & art), great atmosphere, fun rewards (at least after 24 hours of play), and smooth first-time user experience (FTUE). I never feel lost or confused about what I need to do, though the user experience (UX) sometimes has me clicking in the wrong place, ending up (repeatedly) in places I don’t want to go. So far, I want to spend WAY too much of this game, and while I haven’t spent any money on it yet (don’t know after 24 hours how long I’ll want to be invested in it), I feel it’s a very high quality product. Only issue is, I’ve run into several crashes (especially in AUTO mode) that have caused me to waste some Intel Points to restart levels. (Also the occasional crash on startup.) But all in all, an excellent job.
Great job, guys, I know what it takes to deliver this kind of quality.
