    Very cool premise and neat art design. Dig the layout of the story. This game had a lot of potential. Gameplay is extremely shallow and repetitive. You will fight the same 5-6 types of enemies the whole game with varying strengths and buffs, solve the same puzzles over and over again, and that’s that - end of game. Game suffers a lot on iPhone X due to its swipe nature and the fact it wants you to do wide swipes for more damage. Swiping vertically therefore is better than horizontally as the travel time is shorter, yet if you swipe up from too low you will minimize the app and if you swipe down from too high you bring down the apple overlay. There is one fight in this game that is borderline impossible due to its very tight window of time and how easy it is to flub wide swipes. That mixed with the general architecture of its unique yet ultimately annoying combat system leaves this at 2 out of 5 stars. Swipe games can be done much better than this.

    You can play this game for an hour or play in 5 minutes sprints. It was so well made and has a solid storyline along with it. Very fun gameplay and I would highly recommend it.
