    Not what I expected. Lame. Waste of $3 IMHO. Don't bother!

    The pic of the boat is beautiful, as are all the background images - but the whole thing is a story told in "voice bubbles" and all you do is keep tapping the voice bubbles to get the next part of the conversation. There was one point where it gives you a choice of three options. I chose one, but then all the other choices get mentioned in the subsequent "conversation" anyhow. Boring. NOT interactive like Machinarium at ALL. Just tap on bubbles. Something for my trip to Phoenix when I'm bored of my novel or Runik, I guess.

    It's like a memory game for teens. You get quizzed after "reading" the story (tapping bubbles). Then you get "quizzed" on 5 facts you read about - 1 got 4/5 correct after burning through the story quickly - so it's not that hard. Looks like this is the nature of the game... read, make a choice, then get quizzed, and read some more. You have the choice to go back and start the chapter again. It didn't get any more interesting than that so far. Worse, if you're a fast reader like I am, the tapping gets old after the third time I had to do it - reading a book one sentence at a time... eww. I stand by my first impression.

    have you tried surviving high school or EA's other games like this? Mechanarium is a puzzle game where this is more of a graphic novel

    Check this out :

    App Store - Surviving High School Paid (World)

    Same thing right ?

    I like EA games. This is NOT an EA game, however. This is Tournay Software... Pocketeers. Surviving Highschool is 99 which is more where this one should be priced. I haven't played Surviving Highschool but it actually looks more interesting than this one.

    By the pic of the boat and the items strewn around it I thought it might be like a "go here and see what this is" kind of interactive game, but it is more of the novel sort of thing - like those books you used to get from the library "choose your own adventure" type thing. Except they were more interesting than a washed up detective who moans about his ex-wife and drinks too much...

    I don't mind trying new things. I have purchased all kinds of crap for the PB because they are relatively cheap and sometimes you find a winner.

    I know, didnt mean to imply this was EA, only it looked like an EA game. SHS was/is one of my favs so i thought this looked like it, sorry. You havent finished it have you, if its long i may still pick it up.

    Modine, whats a 'pocketeer?'

    That is what comes on the screen when you start up the game. "Pocketeer" must be a series or something... a brand?

    No, not finished it. I'm at ****shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh**** work...

    Bought the game last night. Started playing in bed. Game is indeed a graphic novel with great backgrounds. Story is not too bad, I am enjoying it. It reminds me of the old choose your adventure stories. If you like murder mystery stories, this is worth a try.

    This is a good game !!

    I suggest anyone with a remote interest in Gamebooks or create your own adventures within graphic novels to pick this up.

    This is the only game of its kind in app world for PB and we need to support these efforts to keep the platform interesting !

    The art is beautiful, the story is good, and so far its been fun !

    Thanks guys, please make more, and please buy and review this game people !


    Please ignore my conversation with user Modine in this thread, as she is not a lover of these types of games, and expected a puzzle game. I started this thread for opinions and I dont want this one person to sway everyone away, try it ! You all need to support your playbook devs, who take a shot, or all youll have is 1000 ebooks on appworld.

    I'm sorry my opinion didn't match your opinion, but I do think that since you asked for an opinion (and for someone to TOFTT), you got what you asked for. I feel as though your saying now to disregard my opinion kinda smells icky.

    Please don't refer to this as a "game" as it is NOT a game. This is a graphic ebook at a teenage reading level. There may well be an audience for this kind of thing, but it's not my bag.
