Our Rating: ★★★☆☆ :: NOT MUCH TO LOOK AT :: Read Our Full Review >>

A Dark Room may have plenty of longevity and may be genuinely intriguing, but its interface feels undeveloped in its iOS iteration.

What's New

- there was a capital letter in the game, we killed it with fire
- minor gameplay tweaks
- view optimization for iPad minis (fonts)
- one more thing, but it's a secret ;-)
