I love this game.. very addicting
Nice game, but

Challenges become redundant, but ok that helps you think how to solve them, but a few have no real logic between solution and the quest of getting all 3 letters. Get all 3 letters in first 9 levels and you still pay full price to get to level 18. Wrong! Time to delete. Not paying full price for something I work for. Finding the 3rd letter after the 3rd becomes difficult and no discount for have to watch all those 30sec ads.
Nicely done

A Beautiful, Engaging Quest and an Excellent Value
Colney Hatch on 8/18/2017
People complain about the $2.99 unlock fee, but this app is well worth it. A flat fee is far superior to a subscription or having to buy tokens/gems/coins to keep playing. For the cost of a coffee, the game offers a beautiful experience and some fun puzzles. It's not too hard and not too obvious. It doesn't try to be all things to all people. It's a world unto itself and you can explore it at your own pace -- slowly and with hints if you're a beginner, or blazing fast if you don't do anything but explore fantasy worlds. Some free levels to see if you like it. Definitely worth the fee if you're entertained. If you find it "too elementary," move on, genius.
Myst on my phone!
Mori Ben'Aiki on 8/16/2017
I love how much this reminds me of Myst. The semi mysterious music and simple sound effects add to that. My only complaint is that some of the scenes have important items right on the edge the the phone screen, so it's easy to miss them.
Hours of fun

A great puzzler with challenging levels for all ages!
Great game!
IwantChubbyBunny on 8/10/2017
Over all this is a very beautiful and great game. The puzzels weren't too challenging. Usually I give up on puzzle games because they are just way too difficult, but this game is at just the right challenge level. I did get stuck a few times but luckily, I could just watch a hint, which is a pretty nice feature. I think it is worth the full purchase because it is just a nice way to relax but also work your brain. It does however (spoiler) have a very disappointing ending. It doesn't really give out much of an ending besides "the end." Other than that, I think it is a great and beautiful game and I do not regret purchasing it.

On level 9 when you walk through the first door and turn right you are approached by 3 symbols. You put on the correct symbols and are brought to a cutaway of the door sliding open. When you come back from the cutaway the door is closed again and you can't move the symbols anymore. Great game otherwise, just can't move forward.
Challenging game but need more levels
Bored waiting for game on 7/22/2017
Excellent game but 18 levels (paid version) isn't enough. More levels please!!! Well worth the cost though.
Impressive game for Mousecity
MelWindham on 7/22/2017
An improvement would be more freedom to move anywhere. And harder puzzles.
B dawg b on 7/22/2017
Great graphics, intriguing story line. Fun puzzles. Only played first half (free version). To buy each level is $.99 There are 3 levels. How is $2.99 40% of $2.98???
Made well
Madamivy on 7/13/2017
Very nice graphics.
MEMES AND MORE on 7/12/2017
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
Sussquahanna on 7/8/2017
Best puzzle game I've played so far
Jasontramutolo on 7/4/2017
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
GuyWithNoLife11 on 6/25/2017
This game reminds me a lot of Myst!
More please
bundertwobyfour on 6/24/2017
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
J A Voice on 6/23/2017
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. 👍🏻
