Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition Reviews

First, by holding down the collect button, chop down a tree, collect the stuff, then chop another and no sound will play. Second, in the season of winter while at night place a campfire, go to the edge of the light where you can still see your player will say, its so dark. If you then run back into the light you get bit by nothing.

Its very good gameplay is perfect thank you for making this game like it.

The game is exactly how dont starve is Klon Xbox or pc. It just has harder controls.

This is a good classic game like one of the better survival game out there but when entering the world of dont starve you are all alone with there was a new update for this game to have multiplayer or a new version of this game it would be a dream come true.

We feel like we just keep learning more and more new things and we’ve been playing for years. We agree with many others reviews that it would be SO much better if you could listen to your own music via Spotify etc while you were playing. Love the game play. We like playing at night before we go to bed since it chill enough and you control the game pacing for the most part. You do have to be paying attention most of the time when you play this one though due to random bosses, feeding your character etc. Our favorite game :)

This game is great for passing time and we just dig survival games we could spend the whole day writing abt what we like about it but for times sake and also us wanting to see the game improve we have a few suggestions: 1. A lot have noticed the UI has a few bugs like we were trying to eat roasted berries and when we touched the icon they just disappeared 2. Rotating the screen for one you cant rotate or zoom in or out while youre moving you have to take youre hand off the joystick to adjust your pov, also many times the game crashes whenever we rotate the screen we have an iPhone 13 so we know its not a processing issue on our end. Thats all we’ve got again we love this game please dont give up on it.

Right next to some awesome games like Minecraft and terraria Dont starve is very challenging even after 50+ days. Also, for those crying for a multiplayer mode there is already one and its Dont Starve 2 also know as DONT STARVE TOGETHER, though it is on console and pc right now. Another thing quit crying and get gud for those who whine that the game is hard and unfair.

We love this game with playing this game is a bit challenge but Im in challenging game hope this game p become a multiplayer game soon.

We love we just love everything but where is hamlet?

We love this game all the cool characters and enemies beating the game is hard but fun.

We really want to be able to purchase characters with money, you know, like other games, but still, great!

The best game ever it is hard but we’ve played it for years it is amazing everyone should get it.

We dont even want to know how many hours we have on this game! We’ve been playing for years and we always come back. There are enough different ways to play that keep it interesting. We learn something new in every game. It is quirky and funny and we love it! Im a little old lady by most of your standards, and we will probably always come back to this game.

Well Wendy we think is the best because you can summon her twin sister named Abigail she died and she protects you same for dont starve together. Abigail is ghost if you watch what happened to Abigail but we dont know what happened to Abigail. So when you see Abigail red in ghost she is attacking something if you see Abigails eyes look mad she is going to attack something. Wendy by the way is the ghost guys daughter so is Abigail Wendy was haunted by her twin sister Abigail. We also think that the Libarian Is the best too one reason is because she know many stuff cause she reads a lot. She is just like a science machine. That is why those two characters they are our favorites.

Brooooooo! Buy dis! This is the most bussin bussin game ever!

We dont care if people say its glitchy or too hard, this game is and always will be one of if not the best games on mobile or computer.

Can you update the edition just like the pc do.

Its a good game but we have a question is Webber unlockble we got this game only for Webber.

Endless possibilities, we come back to this game again and again.

This game is great!!!! Very fun, but we would love to have a feature that you can keep your inventory after you die!

We downloaded this game about a year ago and we totally forgot we bought it, we just realized we had it so we redownloaded it and 1 thing we noticed was that the inventory on iPhone SE was off by 2 slots so you couldn’t see the first 2 inventory slots but other than that the game is pretty good we know that this game came out a while ago but we still enjoy it! A couple years ago we really liked dst we used to play it for hours a day, and we bought the mobile version bc we had to take turns playing with our older brother so when it was his turn we would play on our ipad. But once we can play we would immediately get on dont starve together and host a public server hoping someone would join and help us bc we sucked alone and we would only be able to survive the first 10 days so if someone did join we would ask for alot of food and stuff but yeah thats our story. Lepose < 3.

Yeah its fun, and for people that dont like it, yes it can be hard and annoying at times but just chilling playing the game is fun simple but effective.

We love this game so much, so much advancement and longevity in this game. So much to do, so many characters to play and unlock! AND theres so much lore. The only issue is that the game freezes or bugs out whenever we play for more than 30 min – an hour, and if our sanity levels drop alot and the graphics become more on the horror side, the game begins to freeze before we can save anything and then the app dies and we have to reopen everything just to see we have to start a lot of days over. Please fix this.

Like you need to add wurt so here is the way to get her first kill merms to get fishtail is a rare drop by the way and plant the fish tail in the grave yard 10 merms will spawn on the grave and you dont need to kill them you just get the charter right away like Webber.

We’ve loved this game for years and played on our desktop we were happy to see it in a mobile version and downloaded it immediately. Currently Im having issues with the sound going mute and little things like not being able to move the perspective around after that happens. Im unsure if this is a memory issue or what. Im using an iPad mini v.2 right now.

Overall the game is good and kind of fun but we wish they would add multiplayer to it so it scan be more enjoyable to play :)

Tienen muchos fallos con el pad analgico que no se superponen a las acciones de interactuar con o lo que est debajo muchas veces pierdo por querer moverme y no poder porqu se superpone el pad analgico a alguna otra accin y el pad no tiene prioridad al parecer.

Love the game but Im encountering problems with the fight action. Wilson will get stuck in fighting mode even when Im trying to run away. We keep dying as a result :(

We usually am exploring & hardly ever stop in one single spot so sometimes we light trees on fire when we play on our pc to put charcoal in the campfire since we save our logs to make other things, but on mobile we cant light them on fire, we dont know if this is an issue for anybody else but we cant do that sadly. Thats honestly the only issue we’ve had other than hitting beefalo randomly when we go to them for protection & we plant trees but the big tree man will still attack us (??) other than that GREAT GAME!!! :DDD.

We love this game but we would like it even more if there was a sandbox mode so please add this.

We dont know if they only changed the price of ship wrecked to 0.99 but if they did to the normal dont starve pls tell us we spent 5 dollars and want shipwreck but we only have 0.55 :(

Please, the phone is seriously hot and needs to be repaired.

Having a new issue with the map icon and action buttons being off center and overlapping with other UI elements. Same goes for Shipwrecked. But on the bright side, still managing to run smoothly on an old Air 2!


Needs to be updated and fixed. Whenever you change the world settings they do not save. We love this game absolutely but its upsetting to not be able to use every feature especially when you spend money on it and pay to play.

We were thinking of downloading this game! Because it seemed great and all but since Im on mobile we cant do multiplayer! The whole reason why we wanted to download this game was to play with friends but we cant do that!!!

Fun, but the game isnt even close to being similar to DST in any way. Lots of features and updates missing. Just buy DST, you can play with your friends on it.

We’ve been playing for years! We play time over time when we feel bored to kill time. This time when we open, we noticed they added that moving buttom! It made the operating harder! We feel painful playing it now! PLEASE REVERSE THAT! We have this game on ios, on switch and pc. We played on ipad the most. But now Ill have to consider give up this game after so many years, because of this unfavorable change!

We love this game. We love it to bits. We have over 160 hours on steam and we finally had the common sense to get the mobile version. The game is fun and works like the PC version, but we are incredibly frustrated because of one particular glitch. We like to make camp by the beefalo for protection and easy manure production, but for some reason, our player will randomly auto-attack the beefalo. Without our hand being anywhere near the three general control buttons, the character will all of a sudden decide to attack the beefalo. There was even a solid minute of gameplay where we had to keep moving the character away from the beefalo because it kept running toward them to attack! We’ve tried multiple things, but nothing works and it only seems to be the beefalos. We’ve had three games end because we havent found a respawn and our character auto attacked them only for them to kill us in two hits. Its incredibly discouraging and disappointing :/

We cannot download it because of a stupid bug:(

It’s Map and setting button lie on inventory.

We absolutely love Dont Starve and Shipwrecked. We would love seeing Hamlet brought out in a mobile version.

We love this game but could you make it multiplayer please? We would love it even more if you could plsssssss make it multiplayer, online multiplayer pls. If you do then thank you very much, other than that we think the game is perfect.

Very fun overall, however we wish there was a multiplayer game mode. Please add it so it would be much more enjoyable!

The game is great, Im a vet of DST Xbox, and we love the on the go version. The only critiques we have are the glitches & lag when tumbles are around, placing fences can be problematic – and we miss the customizable skins for crafted items & characters.

Overall it’s the same Don’t Starve, but control is a bit awkward, please move virtual stick a bit, make map icon at the same place and increase map scroll sensitivity.
