icloud sync?

love the game, but can’t for the life of me figure out how to sync my save file with my multiple devices. icloud is turned on in
device settings on both devices, but they do not show the same saves, and even deleting the game from one device and reinstalling
it results in the loss of that device’s s

Can’t put it down

This game is incredible. Best mobile game I have played by far. The touch controls can be a little wonky but you get used to it
pretty quick. The game is very confusing at first but trust me if you stick with it you will start to figure things out and it
becomes so rewarding. The art style and music

Good game, but my audio was bugged.

I really enjoy this game, but I have had zero audio since the intro cinematic. The sound was working fine, then as soon as the
gameplay started there was no more audio. I’ve tried using AirPods and my phones internal speaker, nothing.

Adore this Game

Stunning visuals and an interesting storyline. It is a full fledge game on a mobile device. The combat is challenging and
rewarding although a little repetitive. It is definitely a game better suited for a controller, but touch screen is doable
although a little wonky.

But any way, the visuals and

8bit never gets old

One of my favorite games I have ever played, once I saw that it was on the App Store I had to have it. Adventure, action, and much
more. It’s a must have in your pocket kind of game.

Good game strange bug

I’m on iPad 6th gen and a year ago when I played this it got me into games that where a lot deeper than the games I played
before. I now own too many indie games but when I wanted to replay hyper light drifter drifter again I get strange fps dips
whenever I start fighting gremlins. Any way to fix it

One of the best games of all time.

After a few solo attempts and a walkthrough, I'm playing this game on repeat. Non stop gameplay with deep combat strategy, while
the beautiful colors and art display themselves in the background throughout the game. Works way better with a controller but it's
possible to play on the screen with prac

I’m flummoxed at how awesome this game is.

I’m literally flummoxed. Everything is beautiful. The music is awesome, and the action is balanced and just the right amount of
challenge! The story is mysterious and captivating... they don’t say a word in the game (aside from tutorials) but somehow I’m
enthralled! Better yet, I’m flummoxed.

A true adventure game

This game has fulfilled a desire that I’ve had for a very long time. I have wanted a game that is intriguing, yet simple, while
also being fulfilling.. and all at the same time. I feel like I can play this game as an escape, and also as a fulfilling moment
of relaxation. Great job. I would buy the s

Good game

I like the concept, good game. Very relaxing gameplay, but bosses are pretty tough at times. Enemies in general are pretty tough.
But once you get the hang of it it becomes pretty stellar.

Support ps4 control

If the game didn’t support ps4 control i will ask for refund because it’s better to play the game with hand control, i like
the game but the buttons u made for the game not that good so it better to update the game and make it support hand controls

The north

In the north section, I already have collected the three modules I can get. The only module left was the one you had to fight the
boss for, but the gate never opened. I’ve checked every nook and cranny in the north and I am sure there is no way to open the
gate to the boss fix that. Also, does the g

Best Mobile Game!

Completely worth the price. The music is outstanding, the game is so immersive. The graphics are perfect. Plus you can pair a
Bluetooth controller! 10/10 I would buy a part two if they made one.

One of the most Thoughtful Games on the App Store!

I haven't played this game for a very long time, but I can already see that I will enjoy it. The action is minimal, and the lore
present within the game seems to be leading to a grand and well-planned ending. Based on this knowledge, I will recommend this app
to all serious gamers!

One of the best Mobil games

I was blown away by the size of this game, the world is pretty large with so many sorcery areas. This makes the game very
replayable. And once you beat the game you unlock another character. Le music is great, the gameplay is very engaging, and the art
is beautiful.

provides a nice and motivating learning curve. I have to admit I at first liked the game, then didn

'Intimidating and worth it'

'This game starts a bit slow with its story telling being done primarily through visuals. However once you get into the gameplay
it’s such a neat legend of zelda/darksouls hybrid. Beautiful and smooth. I highly recommended.'

'Hope it runs well on older hardwares'

'I\'m currently using iPad 10.2 (2019) with A10 and 3GB of ram. I\'m experiencing occasional slowdown, especially in combats with
many enemies. Maybe adding some graphic options would be good, such as limiting framerate or lowering resolution, for more
consistent framerate.\nBut, even with some slow

'The best game ever!'

'I really enjoyed playing this game, I loved the cool battles and all the secrets that you could find out and I definitely loved
the final boss battle. It really is a great game, I did wish that maybe instead of after you beating the final boss maybe you can
go back to the city to maybe replay level

Not that great honestly

I’ve put about 3 hours in, and I really want to like this game, but there are some key features that are so off putting that I
just don’t want to continue playing. For starters, the nonsensical map will is confusing to look at, and just a hair shy of
frustrating. It will have you walking in circles

Why did you change the difficulty?

This is a great game I’ve been playing it on various platforms for years. A lot of what makes this a great game is that it is
challenging. Why dose this version not allow you to play at the original intended difficulty? I have requested a refund... it
ruins the game for me.
