Flat Pack Guide Cheats - Strategy Tips for Android iPhone Game

1. Controls are clunky. Certain levels of this game require accurate precision, and the “swipe to walk” controls fail to deliver. Additionally, there’s also no multi-touch support. This means it is impossible to move and jump at the same time, which is a MUST for platformers like this one. Multi touch support and an option for buttons instead would be very nice.

2. You can’t rotate the world to see the full level unless you’re in AR mode. Keep in mind AR is only supported by iPhones 6s and up. In order to see a new facet/part of a level in standard mode, you’ll have to go to the edge of a block. The way the camera moves, you won’t know what’s on the other side. An arrow shooter? A spike block? A shrunken? It’s basically impossible to know without flat-out(heh) memorizing the level layout. And even so, moving parts will always be a surprise. A solution could be to add a joystick to the pause menu, allowing you to safely rotate and view the world.

3. Your character falls too slowly. Not sure if this was intentional, but I don’t see the point of it. This ties in with point number 1, where many levels need precision to complete. There’s no way to move your character out of harms way when a spike block comes rushing in at your level. Having a way to make your character fall faster would really help.
Overall this is a good game, something very reminiscent of Fez, Monument Valley, and the like. But when it comes down to it, it plays out more like an experiment than a fully polished game. Though it has a few flaws, I hope this paves the way for more 3D-related Nitrome games.
