I love this game but it is too short 1/5
The first time I saw this game when my friend was playing it I was really wanting it but I did not want to pay for it. Once my friend let me play it I really wanted it. When I got it a couple days later I beat the whole game in 3 days and I was upset that the game was so short. I am not saying that this game is horrible because this game is 1 of the best games I have ever played. I just think that the game should be extended or I would like to be refunded. Please and thank you.
Get the game 5/5
Yes yes yes I love the game I saw it on YouTube and thought it may be on here and it was it is a great game everyone play it now
It gets old fast 1/5
This game with an interesting concept essentially becomes a clicker game later on as all you do is tap
After 6 hours you can do so and so it bored me eventually and I uninstalled it. So polish it up and make it not some repetitive crap hole
Great game 4/5
Add more levels!!!
Expected more 5/5
I expected more technology to advance in the game maybe even add modern technology to keep it interesting.
Plz read 5/5
Ok this is a super awesome game and all but after the fight with the titan I just wish we can still expand like get more people and villagers and build more stuff not being limited by the game
Great game. 5/5
Any updates soon?
ANY UPDATES SOON!!!???!!!???
Awesome but Short 5/5
By Mc Tyrant
I thought this game was super cool. It was very in depth, always giving something new to do, I especially love how the different traits helped and affected their jobs, some things that I would like to see possibly in the future is for one, so much more content. There’s literally only 1 dungeon for the entire campaign. I do on the other hand like how there is two game modes (normal and hardcore), that part is cool. Just there needs to be so much more content for the price of this game. Like you unleash this mighty being of power supposedly, and then fight one thing and complete the game.
Great game 5/5
Kind of on the pricy side, but provided 3-4 hours of solid fun game play. Very specific type of strategy game that is super addictive for me. The explanation is spot on
Excelent game 4/5
I love games that evolve, this is definitely one of them. Very linear but captivating and rewarding. The two biggest flaws are that I wish I had more detail into traits of the workers so I could find efficiencies. The other is...I want the game to keep going! It ended far too soon.
Fun, but cost doesn't portray the game fully. 3/5
I feel this game is pretty enjoyable. You can progress steadily making the right choices, but at a certain point it's just getting more recources and not dying. You're not discovering anything new. And it's pretty early on in my opinion. I have not completed the entire game, but from what I've seen so far I believe that it shouldn't cost as much as it does. I hope there will be many updates to come. My favorite part of this game is the atmosphere and finding out what villager should do what and even it all out to create a steady flow of recourses with minimal casualties as well. Speaking of casualties, I believe there shouldn't be such a strong flow of monsters. Your village can't grow in population because your villagers keep dying by constant monsters that get larger in number and strength. You also lose the equipment that your guards have upon death, which then you have to use MORE resources AND give up certain jobs for villagers that'd be helpful and then just send them to their deaths instead. I do think it's a good game, not great. But it'd be better if the cost was lowered.
No real replay ability 4/5
By Sssssssssssssssuper person
I really liked this game for the first 2-3 hours, then when I tried replaying it. It just got boring.
5 star game easy 5/5
By Halo's Legend
Original game with great art style and game play. I would love to see more content for this game!
One of my favorite iOS games. 5/5
Hands down my favorite IOS game of the year. At its core it’s a resource management game with a lot in common with “the dark room”. If you enjoyed that game you will love this one.
Good but could be better 4/5
The number and icon for material is too small and the font color (white) blends in with the background, making it almost impossible to read. Please update to fix this problem. Thank you.
Great game, very short 4/5
For $4 the game is kind of a rip-off. I finished this game within 2 days of getting it and beating the final boss was easy. I loved the style and the thought put into the game, however it was very fast and it felt at times it was getting a little repetitive. Every night I would be attacked by those weird dungeon dog creature things and I would have to restart the day. Then I would fortify my defenses, a lot, and then only one wolf would come. I think the story should be a bit longer and add some crafting things to do with meteor shards and gems, and whatnot. All in all it was a good game that I recommend you get, it was very addictive(I can say because I beat it in 2 days) and challenging at times.
Great game! Please add more to do after the end game 5/5
I thought the game was great, bought it about a month (around when it was released) or so ago and beat it within a few hours, I really enjoyed the time that I spent upgrading the village and (spoiler) fighting the big boss at the end. But after that, I thought there would be more, maybe another land to go to our a possibility to expand my village even more. By there wasn’t, I've waited this long to leave a review hoping their would be more added. However, there hasn’t been since the last time I beat it, I got bored and upgraded the titan to 30 armor and weapon levels thinking it would be fun. Naturally it was, but after that I got very bored with it. Maybe add more things to do? Examples like traveling to new lands instead of just trading with them, add secret loot or maps leading to treasure or something into the caves instead of just simple loot that I could easily get from my villagers. All and all, a 10/10 game, I would love to see the developers do more with this! I’m sure many other people feel the same way I do.
Great game but somewhat short 5/5
Great game once you get the hang of it. I only wish they’d add more for you to do after beating it.
Good, but too short 5/5
By I AM YOUR MASTER!!!!!!!!!!!
Great game all around but it's just too short, it's not worth $3.99 when it only has a few hours of playtime and it's mostly just tap and wait and equipping stuff and waiting more.
Great game 4/5
By far a game that stands out, nice graphics, enjoyable gameplay.
I’m currently having issues with my build tab on day22 it’s completely blank.... just wondering am I missing something or did my game glitch.
I loved this game when it was “a dark room” 2/5
I hate to see an indie game like “A Dark Room” ripped off by another indie developer, but that’s what this game is, and it’s a shame. The original is better anyway, graphics aside.
The price. 4/5
It’s a great game, I really enjoyed it but the price is outrageous for 2-3 hours of play. Overall a great game, it’s very well polished. The price however is a major downside and quite frankly this game isn’t worth the price of admission. If there is a way to get a refund I would like one.
Wow! This game is amazing 5/5
As a big fan of the survival genre, I love this game. The graphics are cool. My only complaint is that it’s sometimes hard to see in snowstorms.
Hours of fun
Day tripper 3/5
Was great for a day! Need more games like this here or there. If your looking to sink into something for that occasional day off this is your jam.
Seems fun until you finish it 3/5
I had fun with this game until I finished it. I thought it was slowly building in complexity, but it’s really the same thing over and over. The ending comes out of nowhere and doesn’t make any sense.
Rip off 1/5
By Supreme Disappointed
Boring, simple, stupid. Waste of time and money. Completely offensive to charge money for this crap.
Please fix sound 4/5
Solid game but desperately needs to allow background audio. I am forced to choose between the game and my books. The game never wins 😢
Mostly fun 4/5
If you like A Dark Room it delivers more of the same worker management gameplay
I frequently find myself doing absolutely nothing while I wait for night to pass or for resources to collect. It needs a fast-forward button and/or more useful actions for my character.
The progression is fairly linear without much depth of decisions.
It’s a worthwhile experience, but not one of the best games ever.
Great game 5/5
By Best EDI
Amazing game honestly is worth the $4 id like to see more I haven’t finished the game but so far I’ve enjoyed it please keep up the good work and I’d like to see more of your work thank you for the amazing game.
Beautiful, but... 4/5
Great artwork and beautiful ethereal music. However the gameplay is pretty basic and the game itself is rather short. After a few hours you are done. Compare this to similar 2D games like the banner sagas or Crashlands, where the game takes much longer to explore and complete. Just adding a “hardcore” mode isn’t really a substitute for more content...
Love the game, wish it had more. 5/5
I’m giving it 5 stars even though I was insanely disappointed at how short the game was. Starts slow, gets tough, then just when you’re finally getting it and rolling with it and psyched for what’s to come, it just ends. Super unsatisfying as far as that goes. I liked that it felt a little like a graphical version of “a dark room” and honestly, loved all the gameplay. I just feel like right when I was getting into it, it ended. Fantastic for what it is. I won’t knock the star rating because I feel like I need to give credit when credit is due.
Better than what the reviews are saying 5/5
Personally I was looking for a game to play in a short time and get it done unlike what a lot of games are today. I was not disappointed.
So I finished the game in 2.5-4 hours on normal mode...
If anything I would say I enjoyed collecting resources and then using them to improve my villagers.... that’s the type of game this is and it delivers awesomely.
And the end of the game was good enough... it wasn’t amazing but it was enjoyable nonetheless and the satisfaction you get after completing the game is really nice.
So despite the bad reviews I bought it and I don’t regret it one bit...
now as for the future of this game I would say it could use some optional expansions... or even expansions to the original story... or like maybe you could add the option where the cities you’ve discovered ask for help against a horde of monsters and you go help like the way you attack the mysterious caves...
Overall I enjoyed he game a lot and definitely recommend it.
Thanks for the fix up 5/5
The game is great
Too many units to control at once 3/5
By Johnnyboy Curtis
This game feels like it could have been organized a bit better to provide a simpler way of managing units. It’s like if you were trying to play Starcraft but you can only control one unit at a time. It’s not the most efficient way of playing. It’s nice to look at though.
Good, but too vague after discovery 3/5
A pretty version of A Dark Room that falls down on discovered item description. When you make a break through sometimes there is an onscreen comment about what it can do (don't miss it because there is no way to see it again) others are just 'You can now make X'.
I understand the purpose of not laying it all out, but there also needs to be some way to know if X is better than Y. For instance, is a sickle better than an axe in a fight? Should every guard have the latest weapon or is a weapon mix preferable because some weapons are better against certain enemies? No way to know. There are enough variables like guards being tired or 'brave' or not all running over to fight (bug?) that trial and error isn't that definitive on WHY you succeeded or failed (e.g. guard died).
Fun, short, and to the point (opinion) 5/5
By Clash 4 pow3r
Beat the game at day 50 and it was fun doing it on the first try, the game mechanics and the way it runs smoothly is wonderful! It was worth the $4 and my time. Hope you guys can add some add on features or second part to this as I would love to keep playing this for days to come!
Not bad. 3/5
Pretty fun but very short lived. The ending is weak and combat is lacking. The strategy is surmised by how fast you can navigate the interface.
Too easy 2/5
I spent money on this game with the idea that I was getting a high quality game that I could play for a little while, but the game is too short and easy. I only played on hardcore mode and after a week of playing it I beat it. It’s not worth the price tag. It’s also a reminder why it’s just not worth it to pay money for iPhone games.
DONT BUY THIS GAME! 1/5
This game is expensive and ends WAYY to quickly I bought and beat it in like two days. It’s just a constant grind to collect resources and villagers but your villagers die every night because there is constant attacks and when they die you lose their stuff which is a waste of resources. There’s literally nothing to this game at all. Don’t buy it.
Good Game but short 3/5
It’s a nice game, nice mechanics, but very short .
This game takes a long time to save up material. It SHOULD reward the player after saving up. What happens is you save up for armor and weapons and a big monster comes and kills about 10 of your guards. You do NOT get the armor or weapons back from your fallen guards. This makes progressing so hard because after your guards die you, if you make it through the night then you will for sure die the next night. I play this game for about 6 hours, it has great music and art but the fighting mechanics need a lot of work. This is NOT worth paying for...
A boring version of “a dark room” 2/5
The art is decent but the gameplay is not anything I would describe as fun. Not worth paying for and not worth recommending.
Amazing game but not the best 4/5
This game is really fun. I love build and survive games, and tgis one really hit the spot. However, there's a number of bugs, and the game needs to be polished up more in general. The ending is a bit anticlimactic, and the game is kind of short for it's price. Despite this, I do recommend that you play the game.
Awesome game, no in-app purchases. Best game on iphone in a long time.
That was lazy 3/5
The game was fun for quite a while and I had no complaints at all. Except today I got to the end of the game. it sucked, it was probably one of the laziest endings I had even seen. It was actually pretty poorly made and didn’t even have anything to do with the game. It was just a guy in a cloak killing a dragon. When they both fell off the cliff and died it said “Victory” and it ended like that. So yeah I’m pretty disappointed but other then the end of the game it was great!
Ending to abrupt 2/5
The game was fun and would make the game even better is if you would add more different paths within the game and maybe have a little extra after the ending. The fact is we spent money on this game and it just did’t have enough features to be a really good game 6/10
Too little. 2/5
This game was great, for the two hours it lasted. It should have been free.
completed the whole game in under an hour 1/5
concept is dull and somewhat unintuitive. final boss was pathetically easy and boring, not to mention i got to the incredibly fast. so my question is, what now? i guess the game is over. i suppose i could play again on hardcore difficulty, but what’s the point. your character dies so easily and the nighttime monster spawns and dungeons kill you and your guards so easily it’s seems like a further waste of time repeating a joyless story i’ve already completed.
a positive? the visuals and sounds are good.
