    No tutorial at all for this game, i guess I’m use to being able to tactically fight things in a turn based game but here it seems you somehow just need to avoid the enemies somehow?

    The four places I visited so far I could hardly search or loot anything because it’s surrounded by monsters that I can’t fight or do anything to? Besides run over with my car which damages the car.

    I’ll still give it more time though as I know I’m new to it and don’t really know how it’s suppose to play yet but I guess just get as far as you can in each run it sounds like?

    I've been a fan of this game since I saw a first screenshot sometimes back in 2014.. I just loved the art and visuals from that moment. When I realized it's on the Apple Arcade's list I couldn't believe it's being finally released and the wait is over. It was my No.1 game to try when it's live. Now, with less than 4 days to go I find out after all these years it's gonna be turn-based xcom style game. I mean, imagine my disappointment. If there's anything I hate about mobile gaming it's F2P model and turn-based combat. I mean, I like chess and other board games with turn-based strategy. Hell, I love the whole GO series like Hitman, Deus-Ex or Lara Croft. I even liked Frozen Synapse series. But there's something seriously off-putting about x-com to me. Dunno what it is, I just can't stand it :( So I guess, there goes Overland.

    You can pick up stuff off the ground like pipes and sticks to kill enemies.

    Unfortunately I am finding Overland nearly unplayable on an iPhone (8) because of the tiny buttons. It's weird because the iPad version lets you change their size, but not the iPhone version -- even though that option would be most useful for iPhone. The combination of that issue and the overall dreariness of the story is making it very difficult for me to keep going.

    The game works really well on my iPad Pro, I have to admit that the game is hard to play on my iPhoneX. (the most annoying part is not small texts/buttons actually, the biggest problem is, my iPhoneX is nearly burning after few minutes gameplay.)

    Since the game is just the first version, hope the developer can update it later to fix those problems, especially for phone players.
