UPDATE 7/13/14: This is an issue that MAY have to do with my Kindle as it is being replaced as soon as the weekend is over (I guess even Amazon has to take the weekend off from mailing items) as there is a dead spot in the pixels and I also have problems getting some games to move on the right side as well as the issue I'm about to mention here - so this COULD be a device error. If so, I'll adjust this review (again) accordingly.
I have noticed, much to my growing irritation at trying to get little Millie to turn when I want her to, that she is turning the opposite way that I want her to go. I don't know if I'm jerking my hand to the left or right a little bit when I'm wanting her to go the opposite way when I touch the screen (I do have problems with tremors) or if it's the game not recognizing correctly my movements or it's the device per above. Kind of wondering if anyone else is noticing that problem. If not, it's me and/or my device. Please leave a comment IF you ARE experiencing the same issue. If not, you don't need to leave a comment. Thanks.
End of update ================================================
The caveat being the controls sux bad! Only one I haven't tried yet is the tilt but that's because I stink at using tilt control (my motor control is compromised) although, that being said, it might actually work to my advantage! :) Also, as Robert Reese has so eloquently pointed out, having an undo, even if just one turn, would make this whole game a crapload more fun. EDIT: the stopwatch that pops up when you run into yourself does a neat rewind of your last move. Read that in another review but when I installed the game the first time all that happened was it just started me over. This time, tho, it did its neat little rewind with backward sound effects and everything. I don't know if I was too slow with touching the stopwatch or if something had a hiccup so nothing happened or if it was my choice of controls as this time I was using the tilt aspect. Regardless, I needed to update that mistake in my initial review.
Like him, I played on easy but being a bit anal about how I complete my levels, I kept going over the same puzzle over and over again until I finally gave up and uninstalled and am reinstalling right now because there's no way to erase the profile or start a new one.
NOTE TO DEVS: This is just my opinion (tho some of it and maybe all of it) but it would be nice to have at least 2 profiles available because I work hard at trying to best a level and should I let a grandchild play it and (anyone know how to put a quote Mark without it showing gobbledygook when published without posting it on the web? Thanks) they play my levels I haven't played yet, messing up my progress, would be a mild irritation (hey! Don't jump me for that! I only have a few games that are like that and I have a lot of other ones they love to play and I know this will be one so I'd like to head any issues off at the pass :) It's part of my mental makeup and they're used to it but I would like for them to be allowed to play it without me going bonkers :)
Sorry devs - went off on a bunny trail.
As I was saying having at least 2 profiles gives me a couple of things. One it allows others to play the game without me hoping they don't mess mine up and two I can create a new one and delete my old one, thus being able to effectively restart my game. Others playing the game wouldn't mind losing their progress as they aren't old enough (yet) to care nor are they usually here enough for it to be an issue tho I usually get between 1 and 5 on any given weekend and between 1 and 3 during a week in the summer.
So having said that, maybe a restart that erases everything and gives me a fresh start AND an additional profile would be a very welcome add-on to the game. Plus, the controls do stink. I, personally, am one who likes to use my finger but even when I'd turn up or down where I wanted to go, I'd still go straight even though there's room for Milli to make the turn (I know because the 2nd time around the same way it turns). I'm going to give tilt a go even though I have a hard time working with it just to see if it helps me any.
And while this might be a pain as I don't know how hard it is to implement a change, it would be great if Milli would go a lot slower on the easy mode. She books it pretty quick even on easy. I'd hate to see what Normal is like. Or maybe, put less obstacles in the way to make it just a little easier for the younger ones (and us old farts like me who have to play casual games due to physical issues) as they/we are learning how to maneuver the game. I know, I know, it's a simple game with what appears to be some complexity the farther you go and the longer Milli gets.
BACK TO READERS I highly recommend getting this while it's free or if you've missed out on it being free, then while the price is so low because I have a feeling, if they (devs) make the changes requested, this game could conceivably, in my opinion, explode in popularity causing the price to go up. It really is fun and would have been given 5 stars EASILY except for the controls and I think that's something that can easily be fixed.
One other thing that I appreciated - the fact you can play this in every manner I can think of outside of voice. You like tilt games? You got it. Joystick, arrows, touch, everything. I might be sheltered but this is the first game I've come across that covers ALL playing styles in one game.
I'm going to be watching Forever Entertainment S.A. for a while.
