  • Complex adventure, absorbing gameplay Jan 12, 2019

    By Production6
    Man, The production for this game was impecable; everything from the simple controls that give you such a wide range of skills, the clever map design, and the thoughtful puzzles. I can’t believe the level of complexity of this game. When I initially bought this game I thought it would be like other “adventure” games on the iPhone, you can pick them up and play for a few minutes while you wait in line, but this game is so engaging it makes you want to sit and play. The cleverness of this games mechanics makes every puzzle so different even though there really isn’t many obstructions. I am astounded by this game and hope there’s a sequel headed our way!

    This is a great game, but there's one thing that I don't like. It's really hard to tell where to go. I guess that makes it open-word, but not really. It just has so many inteerconnecting rooms it's confusing.
  • So much potential... Nov 17, 2018

    By Ishtarru
    This game lives up to a lot of expectations. The graphic and sound design are great, the story is interesting, and the idea of using magnetism is clever but easy to grasp. That being said, however, it really gets bogged down by the level design, especially with these controls. A great obstacle in a puzzle adventure game should be overcome with your wits, not by trying over and over until you finally pull off the one-in-a-million timing to land a jump. And again, don’t make players start boss fights this difficult from the start every time they get killed, or else make it take more than one hit to kill the player character too. Otherwise it’s just unfair.

  • Fun game but it comes to a impasse Jan 12, 2019

    By Biogear 9808
    I like the game and I’m fine with the one hit kill with the boss fights. Adds a bit of skill to game. The controls are fine on the lower levels but they do get finicky as you progress higher. I’ve made it to the first red magnet ball level but can not progress. When you have to hit the omega box that’s at the end of the La-eg you can not swap to the guntlit in time before falling out of range. It is a fun game but some of the levels are not touch screen friendly. It may just be that level since I haven’t gotten passed it. Maybe a level redesign for that one in-particular for it to be touch screen controls friendly.

  • Beautiful game with bad controls Jul 29, 2019

    By Patrickingoldenvalley
    This game was interesting at first but as I progressed it became more difficult to play, but by design but bu bad controls. Dying over and over again because you cannot get the character to properly move. The game takes precision timing and movements in order to play the game so it is not at all enjoyable. Not to mention a total lack of story line. I got this game in a bundle so I did not read the game info. I had no idea what was going on at all except as a baby he was taken to a house secretly and found a few years later and just starts running some great death gauntlet in his back yard.
  • Clunky controls ruin an otherwise excellent game Dec 5, 2018

    By Engie42r
    In terms of level design, soundtrack, and style this game is one of the best. Unfortunately, the game is bogged down by the terrible control scheme that make it frustrating to play. There is only one set of control options and it really limits gameplay. A lot of the puzzles and boss fights require quick and precise directional input which can be difficult with the floating joystick implemented by the game. This frustration is only further heightened when level designs which utilize the far left side of the screen are covered by your thumb as you’re navigating leading to deaths. Switching between powers and magnetism is especially difficult as your progress and the puzzles get more complicated. Eventually, it got to the point where it felt like it was no longer about solving the puzzles rather than relying on sheer luck to advance. I can not recommend this game to anyone who would be playing on iOS.

    Game keeps on crashing if your offline, it's a bummer because the game is great, it's just that I don't have access to wifi all the time, and even if I'm using data, if my phone loses signal even for just a second, the game crashes even if I'm in the middle of the game, which is very frustrating. I hope you can fix this asap because right now, I'm starting to regret buying this game.
  • Great game, awful controls Jun 16, 2019

    By Great book but
    I’m not sure if it’s just a bad port or what - I really want to like this game, and it’s excellent in some ways, but the controls are so bad that it’s almost completely unplayable at times. (Unfortunate because they did clearly put some thought into the controls for the iOS port - in some ways they’re the best of any metroidvania type that I’ve played on iOS - but in combination with the level design, they’re impossible.) If you’ve ever played a puzzle platformer then you’ve probably experienced the annoying issue of solving a puzzle but still not being able to get past it for ages because the controls are so unforgiving. If that’s your cup of tea, this is the game for you…

  • One hit death and poor control ruin the game Nov 10, 2018

    By NoWayYouDon'tNeedThis
    This seems like it has the potential to be a good game - the puzzles and game mechanics are quite clever. However, the touch controls are really bad (especially the floaty d-pad that has a huge central dead zone that requires a lot of finger movement on iPad to control) and the one hit death was bad design 30 years ago and it's still bad design now. In combination, these two factors combine to make for an obnoxious experience rather than a fun one. Adding in some kind of health system and fixing the awful dead zone on the dpad might result in a good game. I don't know, though, after the tenth time dying to the first boss because of poor the control scheme, I gave up.

    I love the concept, but this game is not fit for mobile. It's fun and challenging, and takes some ingenuity to figure out the puzzles. And if it was JUST a puzzle game it would be fine. But there's this weird combat aspect? I got to the first "boss" I guess and after going at it for days the frustration is too much. There are no hints, no tips, and vague controls. It also seems to be lacking an overall story, which is sad. Put this on PC or Switch, fix it up a bit, and this would a great game.

  • Like a mini Metroid. Sep 2, 2021

    By Debwewin
    Move from one area to another while collecting power ups that let you further explore areas you couldn’t get to before. Some of the puzzles and bosses are actually challenging, requiring you to have perfect timing or accuracy. I don’t think I’m very far along, I just got 3 circles when I go to load my game, it looks like there’s room for 5 though(so maybe just over halfway?) I like the mechanics, it’s fun to play with magnets.

    This is by far, one of the best games ever made. A masterpiece of lore, without a single word said. The story and game, are flawless in every single way imaginable. there is no way someone would ever hate this outstanding game.
  • Impressive game, wicked nice graphics Jul 29, 2020

    By Starlight Navigator
    Love this game already, beat first boss in about 6 tries, it’s difficult, but not too much. The mechanics of the new abilities could be explained better, but since there are hints that give you an idea of how to use them, it just adds to the puzzle and doesn’t hold your hand through the game. I just picked up this game for .99¢ on sale, it looks like it was marked down from $6.99, in my opinion, it’s definitely worth a lot more than 99¢ I paid on sale, is it worth the asking price of $6.99? Couldn’t say just yet since I’ve only put in about 20 minutes, but it’s shaping up to be just that...worth the investment. Bravo to the developer(s) of this game. I play very few games on mobile, this one has intrigued me. Thank you.

    By SiulSicerra
    I love this game. It’s very retro and old school. It’s a pain dying in one hit but it makes it very challenging and you have to think to figure where to go, what to do, and to defeat the bosses. Idk why people complain about the bosses. Yeah it takes patience but there’s ways to put maneuver all of them and beat them pretty quickly. The 4th boss was awesome and now I’m going through the tower collecting the scrolls so I can go into the vault at the bottom on the left.

    Loving it so far, but would prefer not to be asked to review each time I play (I chose later). The graphics are beautiful and it feels so emersive. I might edit my review later, but for now just know that you guys did an awesome job.
  • Love the game Mar 12, 2019

    By Dubs1
    Great graphical style, fun puzzles and platforming - need more devs porting great games like this to iOS. And to anyone who says the controls are bad, you clearly need to just get better. The controls are extremely responsive and easy to use. I’ve played with both a controller AND touch screen and have been able to 100% the game twice. The controls aren’t the issue, just the ‘persons’ using them.

    Fun game but could Definitely use a hint system for puzzles. Puzzles are extremely confusing and complicated that I had to have an online walkthrough open. But other than that it is a very fun and visually appealing game.
  • Collectables EVERYWHERE Nov 13, 2018

    By DalekPrime
    I love puzzle adventure platform games, but the way you’ve strung out these little batteries for us to collect in order to unlock the true ending is mind numbing. And for some it is literally impossible to get. Like the battery that requires you to maneuver and electrical gauntlet in the main tower chamber even though your momentum is used up every time you use the dash boots. All in all, exquisite game, poorly thought out collectible placement.
  • Great but just one suggestion Jan 3, 2019

    By RigsMacLeod
    This has been a great game and it’s the perfect difficulty with the puzzles and story line but just one thing, maybe after we collect all the scroll things and return home could you give us the crown so we can warp back in from the map or something then we can also use it to travel rooms instantly inside the tower, that would be great thanksssss.
  • Not bad Dec 11, 2018

    By shougekinojp
    I didn’t know it was a port of a game with a controller but it’s difficulty gets increased quite high due only bc its really difficult to control things that might seem easy with a controller. However thats also what makes it a good game. Its a good challenging game that isn’t extremely difficult but just enough to keep challenging you. Especially when you get to bosses
  • Sep 1, 2019

    By Ian P
    Do not attempt to play this game without a controller! Some sections are very challenging and would be near impossible with mobile controls. The gameplay mechanics are very unique, and many of the puzzles are very unorthodox, to the point where you wonder if you solved it as intended, but either way, it can be very satisfying if you managed it without a walkthrough.
  • Mar 23, 2019

    By Yulius Halim
    Very good Game. Some parts are really hard, never knew they could be solved at first. But eventually, I finished the game, so I guess they are possible. I think there are multiple endings though... the blank second page of the map and the "36x" graffiti seems to imply so. Definitely going to replay the game, but this time, by reading walkthroughs. But I have to agree with others that the controls are not very precise (pressing up, can cause character to go left or right for ex). I am using a G4S.
  • Good but controls aren’t good Jun 30, 2021

    By Mail5k
    I loved the puzzle design and the different ways you could manipulate the world, but the controls even without the floating pad were very annoying. And the first boss was difficult as I was completely new to the controls, but overall great game. And I would highly recommend it.

A great obstacle in a puzzle adventure game should be overcome with your wits, not by trying over and over until you finally pull off the one-in-a-million timing to land a jump.

    Teslagrad is definitely a fresh breathe of air amongst Android games. It sticks out in a mire of third person and 2.5d beat-em-ups with innumerable currencies and idle clicker games. And well it should, seeing as it's a port of an indie console game. That said, its history on the console rings true, both in good and bad ways. The style and ambiance generated by its design is wonderful, and illustrates its atmosphere perfectly. The gameplay mechanics are uniquely derived, using electromagnetism as its driving theme, which also plays well in boss fights. It almost makes me want to play this with a controller. Alas, therein lies the problem. Its console roots shine through in the mobile port, as the controls are not as exacting as a pad or joystick would be. Sometimes I find my thumb drag moving the young boy you play a hair too eschew to his demise. It's also aggravating to find no controller layout options for users with irregular fingers or larger devices. The inaccuracy goes on to make gameplay already designed to accentuate the clear possibility of failure that much harder, returning the player to checkpoints when he's caught by enemies or touches a hazard. While this might be seen as a Dark Souls-like challenge on console, it can become frustrating on mobile. One example is during a section where, in order to traverse over an electrified statue, the player must affect and rely on pillbug-esque NPCs to react in the exact way you hope to thus guide the player over the hazard. The player's only recourse is to wait until all things align and hope the game reads his jump+charge correctly, and not as a dash into a hazard. Overlooking those glaring moments, the game's environmental storytelling, puzzles, and overall design make it an interesting time and a great time-waster.
