Cabin Escape: Alice's Story
Cabin Escape: Alice's Story
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 17 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cabin Escape: Alice's Story (App)
A good and atmospheric little adventure game - it only lost a star for me because it crashed a few times (though it auto-saves so I didn't lose any progress)
It's a prequel to another game and I enjoyed it so much I straightaway bought that!
Recommended :)

Perfect, good date, good value for money!
I bought these for my cat's fave toy (a laser) as it eats batteries quite quickly and this seemed good value for a good brand :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Game, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Free to play (you don't need to spend *any* money unless you want to support it)
Lovely, lovely Doctor Who goodness!
Yummy :)

Edit - Noticed some of the one star reviews haven't actually played it >> I would say just ignore the low average score, download it and try it for yourself!
Some info and how to play:
You *do not* need to spend money to play this game! Unlike other free games you are not prevented from progressing without paying nor are there any "lives" to wait to recharge.
I hate pay-to-play games and almost didn't play this because I assumed that was what this is but it isn't.
There are some extra fan levels you can unlock by a one-off purchase *if* you want to (and it supports the game and more content) You can also buy crystals if you want to "short-cut" (either by buying characters or upgrading your characters) but all of this is available just through playing. You can also just win the same crystals by playing :)

The game play is perhaps not as simple as some but it's not too tricky to learn to play (Promise!):

Each character on your team (up to 6 on a team) has a colour and a special ability.
The 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) for example is blue and has a special ability to damage all of the enemies at once.

This means if you match 3 or more blue gems in a row he will do damage to an enemy. When his portrait flashes he is ready to perform his special attack.

Other characters will have different colours (for example Amy is yellow, Rory green and River red) and special abilities. But they all work the same way - match their colour and they attack. When they flash use their special move (Rory's is a heal)

Pink gems are different as they heal you.

Gems can be moved one at a time but also *anywhere* on the board (not just swapped with a neighbour gem!)

Turns are taken, you then the enemy, you, enemy etc. However the enemy won't always do anything. If they have a number by them it will be that many turns before they do something.

That is pretty much all you need to know to begin playing! :D

As you play you will get the chance to collect more companions and doctors! (if they are a rare drop you may need to play a level a few times)

Your characters will level up as you play them and you can choose if you want them to be more damaging or have more health or perhaps healing.

There is a website, forums and stuff if you want it but really not essential.

Hope this helps for anyone confused at the start :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good *but* you need to not mess around with it, 5 Aug 2014

Really good *but* you need to not mess around with it, the more you lift it the more chance of dust and bubbles. Also make sure the screen is completely clean and dust free before you start.
I messed mine up trying to get rid of every tiniest bubble so I'm going to get another pack.
It is still the best I have used and I'm very happy with the product itself :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Impressed, 22 July 2014

This review is from: Ocado on the Go (App)
This is a great app. Easy to use and I love the way you can easily add to orders with one click (they should add a similar method to remove items too!)
I had to edit my order in the app once before it allowed one click (not sure why) but after that it's worked perfectly.
Almost everything seems laid out very well, although I think the filters might need improving as they were so numerous I gave up!
Even so a great app.

Nice features (like selecting edge only pieces), lovely images and variable difficulty.
Makes for an easy to use and satisfying puzzle.

This review is from: Red Herring (App)
A great puzzle game and different to most. It plays like an easier non-timed version of the only connect wall. Have now purchased two packs and will probably get more.
Heartily recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't wear these, 14 May 2014

For me the hinges are too big for my holes, but I don't often wear earrings and so I don't know if perhaps this is more to do with that? I can get other studs and dangley earrings in though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pens feel nice, they write smoothly and the ink looks good - but the two or three I have tried so far leave tiny blobs of ink on the paper and on my hands which transfers on to other books and paper. Not good a thing.
Given all the 5 star reviews I may just be unlucky with this lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does Exactly what it should :), 1 May 2014

Exactly what I wanted, controls a tad fiddley but that is more a constraint of the device I think.
Very good
