Don't Starve: Pocket Edition Reviews


Beautiful  Whydoineedafrickinnickname?  5 star

This is a wonderful game. It has so much to do in it and never becomes boring. It was crashy at first but after a couple of updates it became on of my most adored games ever! This is so worth it!


Solid game, worth the price  Someguywithareveiw  5 star

I must say, having played this on console before, I didn’t expect this game to port so well! If your a fan of games like terraria and Minecraft but want more of a challenge, then this is a must have. Something to note, this game is HARD. If you don’t prepare for winter ( or sometimes summer) you WILL die. This game is not for casual players and unless and really like a challenge then I recommend at least looking a few things up. My only complaint is that the multiplayer edition isn’t here. But don’t starve is a massive enough game to not need that for years and years to come. Overall, if you like a good challenge and got the time to spend, try this game


I can’t change the world  aileencita19  4 star

Before you make the world you tinker with it and you can add more tall birds and hounds but every time I apply it won’t apply its default and if I want an no sweat world to be normal I can’t do that and I think they really need to fix this glitch then I will rate 5 stars


Recording  Nickhri344  5 star

Did something happen to the record button, or can I just not find it? I like the game just fine, but I'd like to have the record button back so I can make videos


Great  gorongamer  5 star

The game is great and it’s my favorite but it would be cooler if you add don’t starve together as a game mode or something


Awesome!!!  BravoSissy  5 star

Loved it... but can you just make them free for like a week I really want shipwrecked


Amazing  FluffyPenguin31  5 star

I’ve watched people play this game on YouTube, but I’ve never been able to because of my computer. Now I can play it on my phone! This game is amazing and I recommend it to everybody. It would be even more amazing if you added multiplayer. Maybe even cross-platform multiplayer? (Mobile+PC)

Fantastic  Arowana Bluefin  5 star

This game is incredible for being a pocket edition. I wish an update comes out soon so it fits the IPhone X screen but if you do beware of the notch please, I would hate it if you just make the screen fit but make the game unplayable due to the notch. Thank Klei for making an awesome game. Please release all Don’t Starve Reign of Giants, Shipwreck, and Together for the Nintendo Switch (I know it’s a app review but I would love to have on the Nintendo Switch, just wanted to put that out there)


best game ever, but unplayable  L0KEMAN  5 star

Finally has controller support. Pretty much unplayable without a MFI controller. Get the controller and it’s the best game ever.


Multiplayer  Gfgjhffgvfggfg  4 star

They need to add multiplayer so I can play with all my friends!!


WOOP WOOP  notonfire123  5 star

I love this game to bits. Please let there be a Don’t Starve Together for iOS :))


Charlie bit my face off  VladimirPootis  5 star

Now i can take it with me anywhere! This port to mobile runs surprisingly smooth, although the controls feel a little clucky at first. Definitely recommend, both here and on steam. Can't wait for hamlet!

Multiplayer  Froggy 🐸  4 star

I think this game is extremely compelling in the content that it offers. I would just like to play it with another player so we can broaden our progress.


Game Crashes  Chucknorrischocolatetester  1 star

An excellent game, but whenever I plant a tree and it grows, my game crashes! Simply unplayable for me!


This game in so fun  green_peanut07  5 star

I totally love this game it’s so fun and I can’t stop playing it and it would be nice if one the next update there could be some new creatures and items


Great but needs multiplayer  Lochie818  5 star

And joystick


Multiplayer  Kiwi.1234  5 star

Can we please have multiplayer cause pc has it but we don’t and multiplayer is great


Controls and sound.  VomitSloth  4 star

I’ve always loved this game on pc and now that I can play on the go is even better. But I would be nice if there is joystick layout as an option and the choice to listen to my music as I play seems a bit silly that I can’t play a game and listen to my music it’s 2017


Multiplayer?  Skejdjjdjssjsj  5 star

PC has multiplayer which makes the game better you should do the same for iOS


:)  NHF222  5 star

Sooooooo fun


Uhhhh help  Taraprivee  4 star

So I have dont starve (obviously since im writing this) but I tried the offload feature and uhh I dont have the app available anymore I can open it But I have to go to the app store to do so... Anyways I love this game Blehhh


Great port of an amazing game  unexpectedjerma  5 star

This is a surprisingly well-made port! It includes most, if not, all of the game's features on other platforms such as PC or console. One minor complaint I have is that you can't walk and hold the action button at the same time, sort of like holding the space bar on the PC. Anyway, it plays well. No lag, silky smooth gameplay. I played for hours without my tablet getting a bit warm! Would recommend.

Hey Megan78  Petey Of The Lugo  5 star

There is a Meat Effigy Placeable by using wood I think,4 Cooked Meat, and somthing else.but you can only use the Meat Effigy as Wilson. But every time I spawn with any character I see this statue of this stone Wilson's head and every time I die I respawn from the statue that I spawned next to... It is very strange for the statue just splitting itself open, then I appear with some flint and rocks that fall on the I think this is INSANELY HORRORFYING FOR THIS NORMAL LOOKING STATUE RESPAWNING YOU WHEN YOU DIE BUT IT IS NOT HORRORFYING AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!!!!!!


Multiplayer  yeyeyeyyeyeyeyeye  5 star

I love playing this game but there should be a way to play with friends and you can survive with eachother and have some fun


Lag in Graveyard  Johnerism28  5 star

Performance is fine everywhere except when you walk in fog


Keeps crashing  Dot.roxie  1 star

I want my money back >:(


AWESOME GAME  End310  5 star

I love this game it holds a little rage but it's still awesome the highest days I'm in is day 56


Perfect  Kaity-kun  5 star

Great game! But needs don't starve together, like how on the newest update on Minecraft, making it able to join other devices


Good concept  Coldwooparty  4 star

All I want is that it could go to multiplayer lan or internet world wide


A small bug  Rokutin  5 star

Okay sto great game overall really but whenever I use a preset or change world opinions it doesn't seem to carry into the actual game when I start it up
