TouchArcade’s reviewer has spent a considerable amount of time with the game and has found it to be nothing short of remarkable.
While some may be looking for a review that challenges the common sentiment about this game, it is difficult to find any faults with it.

There are many more opportunities for players to solve problems and experiment with different ways to achieve their goals, which is a large part of what makes playing the game so enjoyable.
The game also offers players a decent storyline that helps tie all of the gameplay together, though it is the gameplay that is the true standout feature of this release. There are numerous hidden secrets to discover, and the soundtrack fits perfectly with the game’s captivating and immersive world.
