Don't Starve: Pocket Edition reviews and comments

Domage that there is no visible positioning grid when you place the walls, I searched in the settings but I found nothing. It's a shame because the game itself is excellent! With some difficulty that is more! It is perfectly in the mood and the small humouristic touches that the main character launches are really good! But again, it lacks an efficient placement system of objects!

I love this game, it is the best ever! Love the free world experience and after three years I still discover new ways to survive. The only bad thing for me is that the giants have disappeared. I get no more giants. It is also a shame that in the i pad version of the game you cannot go from shipwrecked to reign of giants. Other than that, best game ever. oktober first 2018 now there is another bug. When I installed the game again all that was in i cloud was lost. All the saved games, all the unlocked characters ... It does kind of take the fun away.

Very very entertaining, you can not stop playing, perhaps less more content updates, and in the lack of some optimization with joystick controls, sometimes gets caught when there are trees nearby. Game on PlayStation and is much more adapted, since I bought it has not received a single update, seems a bit abandoned by developers, and it's a shame because as I said, is an excellent game with lots of potential and many hours of play. If You Change any of these two aspects, I will not hesitate to put the 5 stars.

The game is hard, it's good. The concept is original. The atmosphere is very stimulating. Survival is harsh. But big big problem for me, impossible to play correctly the virtual stick and without this stick it becomes point and click and the game is not fun to play in my opinion because lack of precision and the fights become very hard to manage. The virtual stick is piled up/superposed with the elements of the game, when an object (a wall or any other element with which you can interact directly) is present under this virtual joystick, impossible to use the stick and therefore to move, since you interact with the element at the same time when you touch the stick, the character is somehow blocked. Very frustrating and quickly unstoppable when you have built a base with walls, it is much less annoying when there is little element on the screen but still. I really do not understand how one can make a game as well thought out and crash on this point. Damage. 4 stars all the same because it is a very good game, just a little technical worries.
