Crashes when opening saved game  -Mel.  5 star

Update! Backpack Crash fixed. Love it! I can start a new game, but once I leave the app I can't come back and open a saved game. Posted bug in forum. Previous versions were quite good, so I hope this gets fixed.

OK Don't starve was and still is a great game I'm really happy with the new easy mode because now my younger cousin can play and she is only 7 ( I am 12) however recently after the Backpack update although I never noticed the glitch with the backpacks now I can't even open it up because it just crashes. Klei PLEASE fix this because I love playing this game and now I can't 😿😿

Only problem with this game is there is no tutorial I mean little boy would take more time I can barely figure out the game but I'm still giving her a five stories


Great game that has been improved recently with better features (updating)  Br0kenNick  4 star

I am a huge fan of Don't Starve in all its iterations. I'm hoping they release Don't Starve together sometime this year as that would be amazing. But as for this stand alone version I wish they could update it to make it even more amazing. First, mFi controller support. I'm used to playing this game on my PS4 and the touch controls are simply too slow for me when time is a critical factor between life and death. If this game could support it that would be a huge deal and make me reconsider my rating. (Read below for update to this). Second (and this one is across the board on all versions of Don't Starve), basic info update on save files. Let's say I played the game several months ago for 35 game days then put it down. Part of my hesitation in starting from that spot again is I have no idea what I was doing. If there was a way to view your progress, what days I built what machine or defeated what boss creature, the season, a view of the map BEFORE I start playing the file that would be very useful and cut down on wasted time trying to figure things out again. Even better would be if you could leave a note for your future self when you save. Just some suggestions I hope you find useful. Thanks again! Update 07/13/17: Mfi controller support and an easy mode for new players has been added, will update my review further once I've had time to check these features out fully. For now I'll increase my rating by one star because it makes me happy that Klei Entertainment listened to the gamers input and added controller support.

Good but needs updates  Geraldo Baez  3 star

It's good but this game has something missing like getting both games so I can go to shipwrecked becuase there's no crossing with the characters I want to play as other that would help

Latin Fire (Jorge)

MFI Controller support added!!  Latin Fire (Jorge)  5 star

I purchased this game day one when it launched and it have been waiting ever since for controller support to be added. Thank you so much Klei!!


Frustrating  S4m4N  2 star

I am a big fan of DST but pocket version is designed very sluggish. Multiplayer extreme 3D games like modern combat even run smoother than this! I reached day 300 and the game is almost always slo-mo !! Can you believe this??? The game suggest that you should have chose small world in the beginning while i only used default settings for the world. P.S. this is not an old device. I am totally unsatisfied and want my money back because of wasting days of time and effort of playing!!


Please add the commands  Al446809  5 star

I LLOVE THIS GAME but I really think you should add commands so we can do silly stupid things and it would improve my experience for shipwrecked and rain of giants other than that I love this work of art and amazing game


Dont starve  Mnodal  5 star

I made it to the epilogue. Not worth the time. Replay value is from the difficulty beyond player control. I hope everybody that likes this game buries themselves alive for the challenge not suffocating presents.
