    Excited to try this to add to my GO collection. I've begun a fan of this kind of game based on how polished prior Danes have been and hope they took the style of deus ex and hopefully fit into this new game!

    Polished Danes are my favourite kind of Scandinavian.

    Thats exactly what I'm worried of. Isn't this just the same game mechanism hidden behind a different graphical scenario?

    I just got to level 35 now. I like how there are levels in the game that give me the "impossible" feeling. Then it feels great when I figure it out. Great level design, IMHO. I feel like 50 levels for the price is fair value as well. Would be that if it were a DLC level pack for the game on console. Will be better value later when the price (probably) drops. Can't wait to try the level editor. Hope levels can be shared/published.

    After playing the game almost to the end (up to last chapter), I must say that my initial euphoria has been somewhat tempered.
    The puzzles are cool but soooo easy. I don't remember blitzing through Hitman or Lara Croft like this. May be it is my familiarity with the puzzles from the first two games that is the issue, but only a handful managed to give me pause and force me to really think. I managed to solve many puzzles with par number of moves on the first try, and I am not that good.

    The idea of a story told between levels was exciting to me at first, but it ended up being incredibly predictable. The Lara Croft adventure was much more compelling without a single word being said.

    On its own this is still a cool puzzle game, but I agree with those who said that this game could've been so much more with a bit more creative puzzle design and story writing. Giving it 4/5.

    Looks like this one gets much more (net) media attention than other title launched this week....but I am not sure if I would want to play this right away.

    It's really understandable because it's not complex as the other game, everybody can play :D

    I sincerely hope this battery issue gets taken care of because the game is unplayable without a charger in this kind of state. It's ridiculous to think that roughly half an hour of gaming will kill an entire battery charge.

    Crashes immediately on startup on iPad 2, iOS 7.12

    ...and sends me back to the desktop. Deleted, reinstalled, rebooted, the works, nothing helps. Hopefully they release a quick fix for this, as I loved the other 2 GO's.

    It'll never be! XD

    Can someone check if the latest update fixes thing? I'm away from my charger for at least another day and a half and do not dare fire up the game to find out.
     
  15. Yeah, I played one level in bed and lost 30% battery.

    Just did. Seems to be even worst now. Heating up in 2 min and losing 5% battery in those 2 min ! Game does look beautiful but in terms of art style not amazing tech so I can't really understand why is so demanding? I play it on iPad Air 2 and there is no aa or native rez but game stutters sometimes. I want to keep playing but I feel uncomfortable when holding my iPad and when checking percentage . Most advanced titles let me play for 4-5hrs at least but with this one in not sure it will last an hour. Please square fix this as it's degrading our batteries as well as its so hard to stop playing this gem.

    Level 49 in 17 moves

    You have to connect the first terminal to a drone. It will turn towards you and start targeting you. Then, without leaving the terminal you need to connect it to the first disabled hexagon in order to clear a path for yourself. After you did that, start moving towards the second terminal.
    You need to time your initial approach to the first terminal so that the walker steps on and breaks the connection just as you clear the first hexagon. The rest is easy.
