I think this game is amazing but the main problem with it for me is that whenever I hunt down a koalafant I need string for the puffy jacket but the spiders normally overwhelm me but I have quite a few meat effigies so I come back put every time the spiders have eaten the trunk so I need to track down another one which is quite frustrating

Please can you add commands on to mobile because the furthest I’ve ever gotten is day 27 and I also just want to have fun and 1 more thing please stop the worlds from crashing because in the evening I was day 27 the next morning it crashed it says something like get persistent string I have no clue but please add and fix this I BEG
I think they should add all the dlc and characters to be accessible on one game other than that this game is great
I’ve been playing this game since it’s early access on steam and the devs are always so on top of updates and bug fixing, the game is brilliant no matter what device you play it on and it’s fantastic having it on mobile to easily pass the time .
Why cant we start on Autum? (Maybe i missed something) but the only seasons i see available are summer and winter... The 2 worst ones lmao xD
Im actually really enjoying this, Ive played ds on pc and console and this definitely lives up to expectations. Just needs some more setting added in. Also would be cool if you could unlock different items for your characters and unravel them like in don't starve together :)
I absolutely love don’t starve it’s amazing definitely buy this and shipwrecked or DST on computer
This is a great game but there is a really big problem with the virtual stick, if something is underneath it it will open a box rather than moving the virtual stick please fix this as this causes death in critical situations.
The game is good the fighting are fine but Building is impossible please add a birds eye view to fix the problem
Just buy it it’s,worth 1 dollar/pound buy it for your child yourself just do it it’s like so cheap!
My 184 day save file corrupted when I left a cave 😐
Game is grate but the latest update which suppose to fix letterboxing actually created letterboxing. Previous version played in full screen and looked much better, issue with icons covered by faceid camera was easily fixed by rotating phone so camera was on right hand side of the screen not covering anything. Now we have two side black bars and on top of it bottom black bar. Completely wrong. Please revert this change or give an option to have full screen on iPhone Xs Max.
Don't starve is one of my fav games, however I've had the app on my Samsung, and now on my new Iphone and all in all there's always little annoying issues with it. Now for instance there's no sound. Really disappointing for an app you pay 4,99£ for. Hope they fix all these little bugs sometime.
That reminds me, writing to customer support is as hard as ever, not good when something needs reported/fixed!
Just to say, I LOVE don’t starve and so does my friend but the main reason we got the game was because we thought it was multiplayer like the pc version. So if ya could Please PLEASE add a multiplayer mode.
Boss monsters never spawn. iOS version.
Really enjoy it and enjoy the style!
But please add an option to change characters after starting a world
I just want to play with friends pls so add this games multiplayer 👍
I absolutely LOVE this game. I could play for hours and never get bored. It’s one of my favourite games I have ever purchased and I still play it to this day. I have experience some issues with the game. I often encounter bugs, I often quickly change from the hud to the crafting menus, and the bug is that the character doesn’t move and cannot access the menu. It’s frustrating as I have to quit and load back and lose my progress. And I experience this bug often. Also the game should be updated for better improvements, gameplay and updated items like a thermal stone with a percentage show show how hot or cold it is like the pc version. I really hope the developers get this message because I love this game to bits and love to see it improved.
The game is good, but the screen freezes at times, and I can't move or do anything.
I love this game but I get very bored listening to the same annoying music/silence. PLEASE let other apps like Spotify play sound in the background whilst using Don't Starve, it would immensely improve the experience. I can’t play without my own choice of music. This is the only issue I have with this game and it would otherwise be 5 stars.
If you have already played this game on PC, this will be somewhat of a disappointment, however, new players that don't know how much the PC version is better will love it.
This is such a good game to play it fun and it has so much to do so you can’t get bored of it I would recommend it to all my friends
Can I not make. Bee box?
I greatly enjoy this game and my favourite character is wx-78. Although difficult it is very satisfying to kite enemy’s. I hope they add don’t starve together some time
This game is my favourite survival game yet! It’s awesome that you put in a menu to customise how many foods trees enemies etc. I brought this game as soon as it came out but I didn’t have enough time to write a review. I would give this game 10\10 :D
I played it for a few hours, but just kept dying over and over again. So I put it to easy mode but then realised that with out a goal beyond survival and with the days being so short to do anything before you have to stop and you’re getting food all the time. I realised that I was just not having fun. Maybe I’ll come back, but I don’t have much free time and if I put 3 hours in a game and feel that I’ve wasted it I think I should move on.
Don’t Starve is a great game, very imaginative and the things the character say are funny, but the new update means I don’t know how long until I get a new character. I think it was good knowing, so please make it so I can see how long. Apart from that THE GAME IS GREAT 👍🏻 AND IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY GOT IT YOU TOTALLY SHOULD!!! 💖
I just want to say that the game is overall good actually great! But my only problem is sometimes the reaction time of the movement stick in game is really slow. Thats why I am not able to Kite (hit run away hit) is there anyway that you could help me with this. Also my other problem is that placement of anything placable really. I know the original game there’s none of that but, there’s mods for PC. Is there anyway that we can have guidance for Pocket Edition. Thanks again Klei.
Klei can you put in Bluetooth controller controls
I absolutely adore this game but please Klei add better wall placing mechanics mabye a grid? Because in my larger bases my walls will be uneven. But thanks so much this game is definitely worth buying!
This is a relaxing, incredibly atmospheric game. Highly recommended to anyone who's into this genre. The art style is also fantastic, so damn good!
Could be perfect on the iPhone X
It is REALLY GOOD this game but I think that they should make don't starve together pocket edition I just really want to play it with my friends i think it will be good if there is a global one and a one where if you have the same internet connection then you can play together. Just asking cause it will be really good
I love this game , I think it's great , the graphics are great and the little details they have added it , seems to be exactly the same as the pc version. Not quite sure if they have added the pig king into this app due to not being able to find him , but other then that over all an amazing game and defiantly worth the month :).
This is one of my favourite games ever but I have a few things you could add
1- please add a together feature because it’s really annoying when I want to play with a friend or make a separate app for together
2- please add juicy berries as they are just a good feature and allow you to get rot quicker(to fertilise)
I really love this game, it's the only game I play on my phone.
I know that the other don't starve games have gotten the updates for gates/other items. I am wandering if there will be a update for the pocket edition??
Please let me know?
First of all, I must say that I am very happy with the service this game delivers - a couple of weeks ago I wrote a review about a crash bug and it was promptly fixed by Klei. And now, there is something else that's been on my mind for a very long time that I'd like to say: there needs to be a separate button on the pause menu to manually save the game due to the fact that the game doesn't save every day. Meaning that you may make a whole day or two's progress and swiftly lose it because it crashes. There is a way to counteract this already but its slow and often unreliable - you save and quit the game and go back in. This can be very irritating because you have to repeat this process every time you progress. So I think that this feature is absolutely necessary.
The game design is not well balanced. Graphic is good though. Doesn't worth the money.
Can u make it so we can play multiplayer or with friends? But its a good game though, Amazing acttually!
Great game but no controller support. Would give 5 stars.
***EDITED*** 5 stars after adding controller support! Amazing game.
I can honestly say that Don't Starve has given me countless hours of joy... but on PS4.
The controls are very awkward and whilst intuitive, just aren't fun to utilise, diluting the whole experience.
This is a shame. I think Don't Starve is a masterpiece, a game that's had me hooked for years. But here, it's all fingers and thumbs.
This is Don't Starve exactly like the PC version. Even comes with reign of giants dlc. Just make sure your device can handle this game. This game is unique and has lots of amazing content with a wacky art style. A good purchase.
I love this Game and the PC version But I personally like the multiplayer version more.
When I go onto the game I go onto my world, and then when I get there I do my things and get the resources and it saves, it quits the app and I lose my progress. I have deleted the app quite a few times and also restarted my iPad but it still won't work. I would love to have a time when it doesn't do that. Thanks 😀😄
When try to cook multiple berries or resources like boards, it takes a long time, pls try and make it so you just need to hold, instead of repeatedly opening the tabs. Just make repeated tasks easier
Don't Starve has been pretty good but woodie in pocket is such annoying he chops woods and becomes a beaver which is alright but I want him to prevent that eating wood and wood scale like the pc version of woodie could you add to the game plz it will be a lot better in don't starve 👍
I love this game - practically identical to the console version I previously played, which I'm very pleased with, and I'd recommend to anyone who likes the survival genre of games. However, there's just a tiny and personal setback: I'd like to be able to listen to my own music whilst playing the game, so if possible I'd like to see an added feature to be able to disable the in game music so I can listen to my own in place of it - if so I'd be much more content with the game as a whole. Thanks 👌🏻
I need to have my thumb over the tiny patch of screen I'm trying to look at whilst placing an item. This game is badly let down by an awkward, annoying and often unresponsive control system. Almost like it was written for mouse control, which would be silly! Because this is a mobile game....... over to you, lazy devs.
Not a bad game wish controls were better would like this to be cheaper way over priced also add controller support then it will be a 5 stars
