This app is perfect for passing the time. Sometimes I do it just for fun but, It ... needs ... more. Sure the levels are log but you finish them quickly, it's easy to learn what you have to do.
Wish it never ends

Best puzzle game I've played so far

Absolutely perfect great job guys and gals
Good game, awful ending(s)
NovaSTL on 6/26/2017
Fun, clean non-buggy interface. Nice art, I could tell some nice effort went into that. A few of the puzzles were a bit too, "Tap everywhere and see if anything reacts," but not too bad. There were several quite creative mechanical puzzles in there too. This would be a good game to play with a parent and child, working through the puzzles and discussing different approaches. Each level could be done in 15 minutes to an hour. The bonus "notes" were fun to find, though once collected, they don't seem to lead anywhere. The first ending is appalling. Really? Just "The End"? Couldn't even come up with a splash screen and a final note to give some closure? Unfortunately, this is a pattern in some games of this ilk. Have a few good free levels, get the customer to pay to play more, but then don't worry about providing complete content after that, since you already have their money so it doesn't matter. So, overall I would say the game is worth playing for most of the puzzles, just be prepared for a letdown at the end.
Great game

This game reminds me a lot of Myst!
More please

all i can ask for, addictive
Great challenge!
Difozz on 6/24/2017
Not so complicated that you play one screen for days, but just the right amount of logic will get u thru!
Reasonably Challenging

You'll enjoy
Septimus54 on 6/22/2017
I like it because it's not to hard and it's not to easy
Sis1968001 on 6/21/2017
It's okay
Loved This One
JMac1483 on 6/21/2017
I've played many of these escape / puzzle type games. In the past I have never paid to go beyond the free levels. Until now. Enough said. Loved the integration of both mind-type puzzles with mechanical-type challenges. I hope the developers will expand on this concept, perhaps varying coloration across the episodes.
Froggees on 6/20/2017
I left a really nice review before, but it disappeared 🙁 So I'll rate it again! This game is so enjoyable that I purchased the extra levels. It's not too easy, not too hard and I liked having something else to complete, like finding the letters. This reminds me of old adventure PC games, which I love. So looking forward to another game like this from you guys!
coryfly on 6/19/2017
Fun little puzzler.
Geekhshskahanshz sns on 6/11/2017
It's good until you have to pay for the rest of the levels
Best game ever!!!!!!!!
fenix8892 on 6/11/2017
Best game I ever encountered but I wish you didn't have to pay for level 10 and up:)
What a puzzler!!!
chrisruiz1960 on 6/10/2017
It will literally make you think outside the box.
grewupinthe80s on 6/8/2017
Best of the escape games. Each level a great little puzzle that takes 10-15 mins to complete.
Fun. Fun. Fun.
Woogoog on 6/7/2017
So much fun.
pacific_westcoaster on 6/7/2017
Enjoying it so far!
Bigdave1952 on 6/7/2017
I wanted more.
Thoughtful and engaging!
mrjwinter on 6/6/2017
The title here pretty much sums up what I think about, and what I LOVE about, this series of puzzles. The only disappointment is that there's not more than 18 puzzles. :( All in all it's a huge amount of thought-provoking fun. Another issue, although not related to gameplay, I paid for all 18 puzzles on my iPhone but I was going to be charged again to install it on my iPad...
Love it but.....
Newton45 on 6/6/2017
The game is very challenging. I do have a question. I was on level 10 but it did not save my progress. It shows the 2 notes I found but it's like I never started.
Loved it
Tatted_Saint on 6/6/2017
I really enjoyed playing this till after level 9 and than having to pay to continue.
The ending was a bit disappointed, but overall, good game
Notwayitstaken on 6/6/2017
I am not quite sure what the ending was trying to tell me. So it's just a dream, a redemption adventure? But the game is well-designed. Not difficult to solve, might be a little bit challenging to gather all 3 notes . And gosh it's only 3 dollars ok? It's cheaper than a cup of coffee.
Love it!
Angiebebe1980 on 6/5/2017
I really enjoyed this game. I bought the extra levels.
So far
LovetochangemyIDs on 6/5/2017
I am enjoying it.
Fun twists
p.l.u.r on 6/4/2017
Good way to waste your time and get confused.
Need more levels.
Pfs62 on 6/4/2017
The game is addicting but too short. A waste if time and space for such short play time. Very disappointing that we have to pay to "unlock all levels" to find a short story with and abrupt ending. I hope you add new levels and that they are free. I won't pay to "unlock all levels" again just to get a handful of new levels.
Mckenzie_brooke02 on 6/4/2017
This game is absolutely beautiful. The style of it all and the soundtrack is really well put together and it gives this game a new perspective that isn't common in puzzle/strategy games. I really enjoyed this. 👍🏻
Georgia Little Bear on 6/4/2017
Really my kind of game/puzzle!!! Can work on in increments & logic WILL make it work....just think it thru. :-)
Just wow
folivia123 on 6/4/2017
Wonderful game...
Too expensive
jy? on 6/3/2017
I paid for this game, and having now played through all the levels, this game is a lot of fun but definitely overpriced. All of the levels can be finished in about an hour, and there's not much in the way of replayability. The addition of the finding of notes is a poor substitute for more content. It amounts mostly to pixel-hunting, in no way as interesting as the central, problem-solving portion of the game.
abonko on 6/3/2017
I love puzzle games and this one is definitely on my list of all time favorites.
Fantastic Game
@bjenningsedtech on 6/2/2017
Wow what a fantastic game! Not too hard but not too easy either. Some of the puzzles really made you think and it was a lot of fun. Best part, the game was super easy to use on an iPhone screen. Well done!
Gaygay😂 on 6/2/2017
This game is addictive and amazing Please make another one like this please.
WHERE are the notes
torrie62 on 6/1/2017
I hate that I am playing through this game without being able to find most of the notes that give a sense of purpose or character to the quest. It's a major flaw. I don't want hints. I want to organically maneuver and be able to discover the story. 3 stars for well begun but you shouldn't be charging for a flaw like this. I paid the 1/2 price to see if it provided instructions or any improvement in the game navigation to find the notes. All I got were hints. I don't need to solve hints to solve the puzzles.
Perfect difficulty. Fun twists!
Microscope guy on 5/31/2017
You should get it.
Great game
Kilbs8008 on 5/31/2017
What's up with level 0?
Ads and in app purchases?
BornInBlue85 on 5/31/2017
I get needing to make money, but when I can't finish a game because I have to pay? I played the entire first half of the game with ads, I feel like if i choose to give you ad rev instead of buying the game I should be able to finish it. That just seems a little greedy to me.
Not that great
Kaatie. on 5/31/2017
There are no initial instructions nor directions, so it's completely confusing on what you're actually supposed to do. The hints in exchange for watching an AD is cool, though. Also, you can only go through level 9 before you have to pay a bunch of money 😒. Not worth it, all-in-all; very disappointing.
Fun, challenging, creative!
Shemaho on 5/31/2017
Loved it! Wish it had more levels!
Having fun
Relmshadow on 5/31/2017
Great little puzzle game
Like the game
Rebellove6988 on 5/30/2017
Wish it was all free
Daphinora on 5/30/2017
I ended up purchasing the extra levels because I became too entranced in the subtle story and my struggle with the puzzles. This was an amazing app and I look forward to more from Mousecity!
Great Game
Tejkig on 5/30/2017
I'm replaying it to try without any hints, which are just enough.
Too quick, too easy still fun
Dbl0Chick on 5/30/2017
Cool app. I love the idea but I solved all 9 free puzzles in less than 30 min. I'm not willing to pay for extra levels that are similar to the first 9. It takes some thought but is not challenging enough for me to spend money.
Really Great
-jbwan- on 5/30/2017
Left a review earlier, and after playing with it for awhile now, I can say it's my go to puzzle to have fun and use the brain also!!
Fun but too short
Hdveiabfonw on 5/30/2017
Fun game but way to short. Needs more levels
MrsWe@sley on 5/30/2017
Great game and addictive, but hate games that hook you then expect you to pay to continue. Not gonna purchase for that reason alone!
