The text-adventure-like intro screen is cute. Comes with Adventure and some other games.

A great way to play interactive fiction (text adventures) on your phone. Check out ifarchive.org for plenty of game files.

Awesome. Works great on the EVO... Press and hold the menu button to pull up the keyboard. 1 Question though... How do you save your progress?

Lags. It lags, a lot. My keyboard(hacker's keyboard) is to big for me to see the text, and when I scroll down all the way, it scrolls back up. >.<

Cannot open any games I downloaded It scans my Nexus 5's non-existent SD card and says it can't find anything. Built in games are good though

Worked fine except... At the end of the game I played on it (H2G2), it skipped the completion message and final score and went straight back to the Twisty home screen. If you could add a pause/reset to home screen rather than auto it would be great. Thanks.

Meh Has good potential. The simple interface suits some games better by Not trying to be too clever. But the system gets very slow after a short amount of time. And keyboard predictive doesn't work: very frustrating. Finally, it takes an age to find other games on your device and doesn't keep them saved in the available. Meh.
