    What?
    You're actually telling someone to throw money at a version they can't play? #

    Why don't you do it if you want to give them more money? #

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet. When the game is loading and populating a new game world, if it keeps cycling through the words just go to your home screen and back to the app and it loads right away. Seems like a bug but it's an easy work around. I just app switcher to home screen and back to the game and voila .. very fast load time

    He won't have an unsupported iPhone forever. Just buy it now and play in the future.

    And yes I've already bought it. I have DS on Steam, PS4, Vita, and iOS.

    It's possible that he could never have one. That is horrible spending advice.

    Great game! But I seriously suck at this game!!! Can't make it past day 8. Crashlands felt easier for me. Love the graphics and them of this one though.

    How is the rest of you doing? Any tips?

    Don't starve is supposed to be tough as nails. If you really want to get better at the game, I suggest to do some research in one of the many wiki-sites available. The game is unbelievable deep and complex but requires a lot of stamina and frustration resistance.

    Ir's definitely not for the casual player or the faint of heart. But if you are willing to dig deep into the crazy world of the game it is a worthwhile trip IMO. Good place to start might be here:

    Thanks I appreciate it.

    First few days I'm always okay and once I get gold to build my science lab etc but it falls to flat from there and somehow something random happens where I die.

    One tactic that I suggest:

    The game early on encourages you to pick everything up. That is a correct thing todo. But after a few days, you should have at least ran into one thing that looks weird or dangerous. Like a hot pan on a stove, don't touch it. Move along and come back later when you are more prepared. Supplies are everywhere.... so if you can't get to something because of an obstacle. Move on!

    Almost all of my deaths are not from starving or weather. They are from the curiousity risk that the game throws at you almost daily. You want to mitigate your losses with this game. There are so many situations that you will run into that just are winnable. You have to learn to recognize those and then be ready for wolves tearing your face off when you least expect it.

    My tip for newbies, I have not bought this expansion yet but if it is like the original and you can create your own world to your own specifications, create a world that's always day no winter or weather (rain) maximize resources lessen threats and play in it like that for awhile until you get used to it, this is also a great easy way to live long enough to unlock characters

    Great tips everyone thank you. I find myself never starving it's the which day do you start to think of a base farming etc.

    Obviously the unknown rocks me too. I was on a island with a pig who all of a sudden attacked me

    I keep mistaking this with 'you must build a boat' and I'm getting excited thinking its a new game.

    Is this game as big as pocket edition ? I'm debating which one to pick up.

    My advice is buy both especially since the first is only a dollar right now. I believe the first is a bit meatier content wise (the adventure mode etc)

    FYI, Klei responded to me. They are working on the virtual stick for the original version as well!

    Agreed...

    Shipwrecked usually makes me want to get back into PE... But as a strictly survival game (outside of unlocking a couple of characters), it's easily one of the best I've played... Granted, I didn't get into the genre until about a little over a year ago, but...
    They go together so well. After playing both, if I had to go back and only play one, I'd probably miss them each equally... It'd be a very hard decision...
    But since you haven't played both, I'd go for the original... The way that games depth opens up as you keep playing completely blew my mind. Those big 'a-ha' moments are a huge part of why I got so crazy about the game...
    Shipwrecked pretty much takes everything survival based, environments, animals, bosses... makes them tropical with new quirks to contend/get comfortable with and tosses boat building/ocean crossing/treasure hunting and a deeper fishing system on top of it... So if you do get the original and it clicks with you, you've got a-whole-nother world to explore and try to survive/thrive in in an entirely new way.

    ...


    It's crazy to me that you can get Don't Starve and the Reign of Giants & Shipwrecked DLCs on the iDevice for $6 right now...

    =oP

    **phew, I hope that made sense...
    I've gotta get to beeeeeeeeeeeeeed
