  • Impossible to read/play - so disappointed

    By Metahari
    Wow, this game is inaccessible even on my new phone. The painting tools are ok, but the only text I could read said ‘Act 1’. Please, please either design for iOS users or provide a setting to make all of the user interface larger and easier to interact with. (A finger can currently cover some of your pop ups, which apparently have teeny tiny buttons/icons in there too)
  • What a waste of money, why is this featured?

    By zveeg
    Unoriginal game design, cute graphics but you will be bored within 5 minutes.
  • Wine

    I like wine and banquets
  • Unreadable text

    By RealityRocks
    Creative concept that holds promise but can’t rate the rest due to unreadable micro text that even with 20/20 vision is illegible. The alerts time out quickly so one wonders what would’ve happened next. Can’t tell whether the font is 6 pt or perhaps smaller because it is simply unreadable using iPhone X
  • Intellectual Property Rights

    I love the concept, the gameplay, and the way the paintings I make look in game. Was playing along having a blast and then read the terms of use on the website which terms allow the developer to reuse and create derivative works of my paintings without my permission. As someone with a fine arts background, I had the wind taken completely out of my sails by this. I can’t make art in this game when I feel like the end product is being stolen from me. There’s a certain appropriateness to my chagrin and disappointment here, because one of the toughest struggles for an artist is the necessity of actually giving up pieces of work you love, selling them, in order to not starve. And while I think the ephemeral nature of the paintings I create in game evokes that poignancy in a powerful manner, the terms of use make me feel like I’m a starving artist working for a crooked gallery owner.
  • Not Able to Progress

    By Forever Master
    Even after the 1.1 update, I’m still not able to progress to Act II. Whenever the critic comes around, the newspaper pops up, but I’m never able to press the check button when it asks me if I want to progress to the next act. It’s very frustrating, and I hope that they fix the bug for everyone in the future.
  • No iPhone X optimization

  • Can’t Progress

    By GameBoy11776600
    The Progress to Act 2 button does not work and there are a few other bugs- please fix this but otherwise this is a great game.
  • Progress not fixed

    By Laalaalaalaalaalaa
    I still cannot progress. I’ve tried refreshing app many times. Still no difference.
  • Illegible Text and Buggy

    By Eberg1133
    I’ve been looking forward to this game since it was announced for PC- and was delighted to see it come to iOS. I was even happier to see that it’s universal game, and not iPad only. Unfortunately, the developers have completely forgotten to accommodate those playing on phones, as the text in every pop up window is way too small to read. This is incredibly frustrating, as the only indicators of right and wrong are in the dialog boxes that appear when people critique or purchase your art. Without being able to read these, the game is a little more than a featureless drawing pad. And it crashes quite a bit. I’m playing on an iPhone X and the game frequently quits to home screen. It’s hard to tell if you’ve lost your save as there are very few indicators of progress in the game. Overall this could’ve been a great game if the developers had paid a bit more attention to the port. I do not recommend downloading this if you’re playing on an iPhone, even a plus size phone.
