Warning  MR ACORNNSJWJSJJ  2 star

I just got this game and was excited to play it, but I got a warning error when trying to make/load a world, please fix, or might reconsider


Muah love it  Huhdfsd  5 star

I really really love this game! A few things you could fix is that when you want to build walls you go into a square menu and you can place the walls exactly where you want. Also.... PLEASEEEEEE ADD MULTIPLAYER MODE!!! Or, at least make a mobile game based on don't starve together. I would totally buy it!!!

Awesome!!!  Trevor forester  5 star

It's so good and I LOVE IT. If I could rate up twenty stars I would give it 19 stars!!!


Please fix controls  Marshgrimm  3 star

(Note: I have been only using iPhone 7 Plus so I cannot speak for iPad.) First of all I love this game but controls could be more intuitive. On a controller, to open the map you must click both shoulder buttons simultaneously which turns the camera either left or right and again when closing it. This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to navigate and I end up running in circles. The easiest solution is to just make the map turn on button release, instead of button press.


Fantastic Game  Stro37  5 star

I've sunk hundreds of hours into the PC version, and I've already sunk a bunch into this. Controls are a little iffy in tight situations, but all in all, the best survival game and my favorite iOS game.


Killing blow bug  Pushyrummble  5 star

I love this game and it works really well with iOS however I think there's a bug with beefalo where if you have enough health to die within the next hit to a beefalo you will die without it needing to attack you, I died 2 times to this and left me wondering how I died without it attacking me or without getting up close to me. I still love the game but this might be a bug.

girl game ;)

Recommend completely  girl game ;)  5 star

Ok first of all it's a great game.I was always hoping this game would come for iOS.i downloaded this game on my old iPad 2 and it didn't work. Then the most recent Christmas I got an iPad mini 2 and I downloaded it and it works! The game is so smooth and has great graphic features. If your looking for a adventure/survival game don't starve is right for u. If you like this one you may also like dont starve shipwrecked.Even though u have to pay for this game it's so worth it if your a don't starve fan or a new fan.Anyway I totally recommend. Gotta go now CYA and enjoy don't starve.

I love this game sooooo MICH but if you’re really far and have so much progress to just want to destroy your phone when you die. I have one suggestion PLEASE MAKE A DONT STARVE TOGETHER❗️ that would be so fun.


No iPhone X support/a tad buggy  mikeman452  3 star

The controls are pretty decent but it runs a tad buggy at times and crashes periodically. Maybe this is due to poor optimization on the new iPhone ? Also, no iPhone X resolution/aspect support which is a bummer. I’m sure it’ll be updated soon though so maybe these issues will fade.


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

Please read klei!  Pissedoff guy  3 star

I really don't want to hate. This game is absolutely perfect for mobile devices, thought it the first time I played it on PS3 but this game has gone though a lot of updates, yet I still can't play the game for more than a few minutes before it crashes! The joy stick isn't really game ending cause the controls are great as is, but not being able to play without stressing my game is gonna crash before night comes is game ending. Please fix this and you guys would be 5 star. Hope one day there will be a 'DS Together' update.

I LOVE this game and I always play it 😃😃😃 I like how it is like very old style characters!!!


Awesome Game.  Gerfgghhhh  5 star

The game is great and I love playing it. The graphics are awesome and the things your guy says are hilarious. I also love all he strange characters and enemies too. Some people say they don't like the controls. What you can do is change it to a joystick option. Great game!


Amazing game, with only one issue  AllStarDevil  5 star

The game is a lot of fun, but I have ran into an issue with the custom worlds. When I tried it a couple updates ago, it worked fine but now it's deleting everything I did in custom and does input it in the game. Please fix!

Fun, engaging, and never ending!!  Yoople  5 star

This game has kept me satisfied for hours on end and even if you think there is only so much too it, you unlock a new character (which always gives a nice rush)or a boss spawns,m. There's even a way to beet the game which is nice to try too do(although I haven't done it yet. Ps USE THE WIKI TO HELP YOU IN THE GAME OR YOU WILL DIE.


So glad I found this app.  EmTHEReviewer  4 star

I've had this game for at least a month now. Very fun, extremely addictive, and actually challenging (so, not too easy). (O, also, I do wish Don't Starve Together existed on mobile devices. Or just some way to play this game with others)

Incredible Game; one issue  MitchSS 1  4 star

To be clear, this is easily my favorite survival game on the App Store currently. Don't Starve molds strategic reasoning with splendid, randomized resource variety through an experience that is alternate and yet EXTREMELY enjoyable. I've been playing the mobile version of this game for several months now, with relatively few issues. Along with learning the diverse ropes of survival in a world seeded with evil, I have been observing the overall functionality of the game. From my previous experience of playing the PlayStation 4 version of the game, the mobile edition fares fairly well in that field, allowing the player to utilize both the Pickup/Attack buttons near the status bars, and simply tapping on objects for interaction. Conclusively, an all around great game. So then, you might ask, why haven't I clicked the fifth star as yet? Well, I myself, am a fan of smooth-performing games, and, for while, that was EXACTLY what Don't Starve was for mobile. In fact, to my perspective, it ran substantially faster than the Console version of the game! However, lately, I have been observing that while creating new worlds, the screen tends to violently buzz and shake whilst I am moving around, as though under a frame rate drop. This occurred multiple times in multiple worlds until I eventually discovered the not-so-fast solution of activating Battery Saving mode. It completely nullifies the shaking effect, but runs the game at a slower speed, making all of the in-game features seem slow and significantly more dull in comparison to no Battery Saving mode. (I don't know if this issue is universal to all devices, or just localized to my iPad Mini 2 alone.) As stated previously, it IS a SOLID game, without a shiver of any doubt. It employs mechanics of survival that are not found in any other survival-based games. It's just the issue addressed, while not major, becomes a cruel annoyance after a period of time. Once the issue is resolved, I will deliver a full, unhindered 5-star rating to this game. A Handsome and Hearty Thank You!!!


Permadeath is the worst  Fohdegjohd  1 star

I'd forgotten how boring and frustrating video games were in the 90s when you only had one life and no saves. This game reminded me.
