I don't normally play mobile gamesEndlessly charming, fun little noggin scratcher puzzles, amazing aesthetic choice and spot-on execution. I don't normally play mobile games since my phone is a bit outdated, but I am very glad that I decided to pick this one up.
None of the puzzles outstayed their welcome, nor were the too difficult for most anyone to be able to figure out. This could be a great little game to play with your children. The atmosphere was engrossing and I truly loved the art style and aesthetics of this piece. It's hard to imagine being enraptured by little birds and a girl, but I loved the little caws, the pitter patter of the Princess' footsteps and the ambient music.
For those who believe this game was too short, I get it. I wish it was a little longer too, but it is what it is. Also, the game is super cheap. To those of you that say it should have been free, maybe you don't understand how games are made, or are too overwhelmed by free-mium type games to care. Either way, I am very happy with my $3 purchase (seriously, you're complaining about three bucks...) and will be picking up any expansions/dlc that the devs have to offer.
An easy recommendation, and a hearty 9/10 :)… Expand

My computer is too fast and powerful for DOS Box to run properly, and I've been spoiled beyond reasoning with today's aesthetics and graphical capabilities. That being said, I was pretty excited to play this game. Also, if you don't like Star Wars, don't even bother, as you'll probably not enjoy it for what it is. It's considered a cult classic, and I can see why. I'm a Star Wars fan, and was instantly smiling when the utterly recognizable midi tracks began to bleep and bloop over some fun 16-bit looking cut-scenes (and cgi which was probably real good for the time). Of course, it's going to be a Doom "clone" as my other contemporary has so bluntly stated, but realize, that's what the "shooter" genre was in '95! So bully to that, it's fun and fast paced. I only wish that I could have my point of reference lowered from such a lofty one as I have today, and enjoy it like so many did back in the day! Have a go, I'm sure you'd like to know how Kyle Katarn was an integral part of the Star Wars mythos!… Expand
Average User Score: 7.2Apr 25, 2014I'm a Souls veteran, with 3 playthroughs of Demon's Souls and 7 of Dark Souls, and by no means am I disappointed with Dark Souls II. Maybe aI'm a Souls veteran, with 3 playthroughs of Demon's Souls and 7 of Dark Souls, and by no means am I disappointed with Dark Souls II. Maybe a little underwhelmed, but not disappointed. It's different from both Dark and Demon's, but somehow feels like a strange combination at the same time, which is good (but again, different). By no means is different bad, in fact I think that's this games sticking point. If it was too much like the first, I don't think it would have been as enjoyable for someone like me, who knows the mechanics inside out, upside down and backwards. I feel like I'm new again, holding up my shield while slowly turning the next corner, and hoping not to come across some new trap.
For all the hate it's getting for not being exactly like Dark Souls, I can agree with some of the points. The weapons degrade at a shocking rate, although I am still early on (3 hours in) so who knows, upgrading may fix that. And of course, we could discuss the lighting engine and all that fluff, but it's been said and done before. We know it's not what was shown at E3 in 2013, nor what was in the beta, but whatever. Although, I still feel that it's trying a bit too hard to give the lighting effects a chance, because nothing actually looks, you know, dark yet... Here's hoping The Gutter proves this point moot.
Anyways, first impressions aside, I'm glad I purchased this game, and I plan on playing it for a good long time. Is it as good as the first, I don't think so (although I'm a admittedly jaded), but it doesn't have to be... it's its own game that stands up just fine with the Souls line. So I hope to see you all out there, and have some jolly cooperation! Oh, and don't forget, seek larger souls!… Expand
