Fantastic game. Got this a few years ago before they made fast travel an extra in game expense. Regardless, the whole series of games by them are excellent. My son replays them all the time.

I got this when it was free for a limited time a month or 2 ago. Its description of having been "updated with major expansion" is outdated as it was last updated more than a year ago. For a free game, it's quite good with decent graphics, bug-free play, and sufficient game length. I played it with my 6 year-old son who enjoyed it and was able to solve most of the puzzles with only minimal help. However, there are just one or two puzzles that I felt were poorly conceptualized and somewhat illogical. Don't pay for in-app hints if you get stuck though. Some generous soul has posted a complete walk-through on YouTube and I've only had to consult that on a couple occasions.

They asked me for a whole bunch of permissions that I felt wasn't worth it. Deleted. Thanks anyways.
Please don’t confuse my kindness for weakness.

Thanks, didn't pay attention [did it in a harry] and RFD has a nasty habit to automatically check "Multiple retailers" that nixes single retailer name...

Fixed!

I tried it, and it does ask for "photos, media, and files on this device". Why would it need my photos??
Thanks anyhoo. If I had a random extra phone for games etc, I would appreciate it more.

Maybe you should learn more about Permissions.... Way more.

They are asking for permission to access my external storage so that they can load optional additional content if I choose to buy it. There's no reason why they can't ask for that permission when I go to download additional content. Asking for this before they need it, and likely never will need it, makes me question their motives just a little, and It's just poor app etiquette.

App permissions best practices
Don't overwhelm the user

If you confront the user with a lot of requests for permissions at once, you may overwhelm the user and cause them to quit your app. Instead, you should ask for permissions as you need them.

It only asks for 1. Storage. That's it.

Thanks OP. Finished it in about 1h30. It was fun. Got stuck once or twice but didn't want to use any guide and didn't. Quite satisfying to finish with no help.

There will always be some characters on RFD spreading FUD and displaying their ignorance. I stopped paying attention to these long time ago.

Unfortunately, many others will not take advantage of the deal after that due to [ungrounded] fear... Oh, well...
