    I've had three crashes so far on my iPad Air 9.1.
    I've experienced the locked gate freeze but I've also had 2 times it crashed after completing a battle. Now I've tried three times to complete the prison break quest but without ANY way to save or any decent checkpoints or just a save after each battle I'm stuck restarting back at the begginging of the level. Which I've got about one more time in me before I toss the game.

    Update needed!. Can't deal with constant crashes with no save points. Too harsh to lose all your progress when the game is such a slow mover.

    But besides that game is beautiful and the gameplay is great. But needs an update bad!
    Very disappointed.

    I'm playing on my iPad Air iOS 9.1 and every time I get close to a door, the message "Door locked. Keycard Needed" appear, and it is impossible to play further. I can't move and I have to close the game and to play from the last check point. I think a quick save will be great. It also crashes after long battles.

    Gonna hold of on a purchase until the bugs are confirmed fixed here. Anybody got a few hours into the game without crashing/bugging out?

    Zero crashes whatsoever, four hours in now. I've had the keycard bug but that was easily worked around and everything else has been perfect. It's a shame everyone's experience hasn't been the same as mine.

    Hey everyone!

    First things first, we need to thank you all for the amazing feedback regarding Zodiac: Orcanon Odyssey! A lot of love has been put into this project and we really want to make sure that this is an awesome experience for you.

    We would also like to let you know that the team is aware of the bumps on the road, such as the prison gate freeze. We are working on delivering a patch for this as soon as possible!

    Regarding the battle crashes, we suspect these might be memory crashes. Have you tried clearing other apps (running in the background) while playing Zodiac? Do the fight crashes still occur?

    We will be keeping an eye on this thread!

    I have had no crash issues of any kind with this game. Only wish it saved my progress because currently if you don't have time to finish your quest then you have to start all over on the quest due to no saving or at least have save points. Anyway regardless I am really enjoying the game so far. Thanks for the great work put in.

    After I made a hard reboot to my device I had no problems with crashes. Also, finding a checkpoint before closing the game will ensure that the progress is being saved.
    Now everything looks great, I like fighting system in particular.
    It looks like there is a lot to discover and many many upgrades to make.

    Good job in making this! Really love it. I like the cartoonish feel to the game. Just curious why choose your own server save rather than iCloud? I would have preferred iCloud. Any reason?

    There is a glitch if you try to enter a colored zone and don't have the keycard it will just keep posting up a message and you can't continue on. While it doesn't save your exact place I have noticed any leveling up you do saves even when you leave the game so that's a plus.

    After many crashes last night I tired again this morning for a couple hours. It worked until I completed the escort quest in the swamp. It crashed on the first encounter right when the battle started. Lost about 5 or 6 worth of fights and the escort quest which included 3 fights I think. Not as many checkpoint in the swamp area. Also I cleared all apps and did a nice long reboot before starting again this morning

    Gonna have to wait for a patch before I throw my iPad Air 9.1 against the wall!

    Game is good enough that it's worth waiting for an update or if u have the patience, try playing through the crashes and try to find checkpoints but I'm all set with that. I bet it works fine on other devices but all I have is an iPhone 6 Plus and an iPad Air and I'd rather not play it on a small device.

    Please fix devs! I want to love the game

    Hello and welcome to the forums. Wish you good luck with your launch. The production values are top notch and till now everything seems on the right place!
    Is it possible to consider on the future a kind of joystick for moving the griffin? Not a big deal but i like my hand not to hide the beautiful scenery when exploring!

    This game has a very serious bug.. It makes the game totally unplayable..

    I manage to reproduce this...

    In the jail. After you get the orange key and save You probably will.

    Now open the orange gate.
    From here till the next gate do not try to open any gate without getting a save at the orange zone.

    If you do.. U will be force to kill app and will return back to blue zone safe(last save). And.. U will never have the orange key anymore. The game will not loop infinitely on the orange gate but you will never open the gate!!!! It will say u don't have the orange key and the lady that gave you the key will not have the option anymore...

    No sure how it was QA. Or did it.

    Damn...

    Thank you for stopping by and communicating! And thank you for the hard-work and passion put into this project, as well as for making it a premium title. It is quite beautiful and fun.

    I would love to recommend a couple things for improving an already beautiful experience:

    1. Since there are no manual saves, only checkpoints and missions, it would be helpful to have a Quick Save State that we can activate anytime and anywhere, so when we pick it up we can start from there instead of the checkpoint. I keep flying back the the checkpoint after every battle and an auto-save after battles would be helpful too, considering this is on a mobile.

    2. Whether on your server or not, iCloud would be an extremely helpful addition.

    3. Sound effects during cutscenes would add a lot to the atmosphere, even if just from Audioblocks.

    4. An Exit-to-Main-Menu button in settings would be nice to have, especially if it auto-saved when exiting.

    However, all together, this game seems like a nice addition to my RPG collection. It feels a little more like Fearless Fantasy than Final Fantasy, but battle-centered gameplay is fun. I'm looking forward to seeing what the story holds.
