Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition Reviews

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

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 :)

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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!


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 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.

They should add multiplayer the game is good but it would be better with friends.

We occasionally play this game, and we are still on our way trying to unlock Maxwell. It was pretty fun until 1.45. After we updated to 1.45, the game sometimes freezes when we interact with the item slots. We had to quit and re-enter the game, but doing this can lose our progress if the game is not saved. Also, they added protection to tamed buffalos, which made them MUCH harder to kill than before. As before, you can bait one out of the group but now after you feed one you cannot attack it. It was good.

The latest version. Bugs. Frequent probelms. 1. Can not do anything, hard to move, stuck and frozen. 2. Failed to control, or move items in the boxes. Will directly drop into the bag.

Died countless, and we mean countless times just trying to juggle our inventory using the given UI layout and behaviors. Please update the UI a bit. Will happily change to 5 stars. Edit 2/ Also when you have a torch out and try to use the joystick while something like a tree is directly underneath the joystick, you cant move because itll keep bringing up the light/examine dialogue box. Only workaround is to rotate screen and hope youre not in the middle of a forest. This has killed us even more. Edit 3/ we know for a fact that there have been at least 30 player planted Saplings and Grass Tufts that have just simply disappeared from our base. This is crippling. We wont make it through winter now. Its day 18 and Im meant to be at base collecting all the twigs and grass we want while we cook up whatever we can pump out through our farms with fertilizer. Please fix these sorts of harsh game altering bugs. We went and got more once already so technically this happened twice this save.

Found out about this game from our dad, an indie game nerd. We fell in love instantly, its art and graphics is whimsical and enchanting, and its gameplay is wonderfully chaotic and an absolute blast! Well worth the money and believe me: you have not felt fear until you have been chased chased down by a deerclops in the dead of night.

We absolutely love the game but we want it to be more like dont starve together cause we wish to play crossovers like mobile and pc players can play it together yet we still enjoy it.

After we have installed the most recent update the Bluetooth controller controls make it to where movement is every direction on the right joystick except for when we want to go left, then we have to use the left joystick, as far as we know everything else is working fine except that. The controller we use is a DualShock 4 or more known as a PS4 Controller.

What will it take for you to fix a bug? 1 year? 2? 3? SOMETIMES we CAN NOT USE ANYTHING BUT MOVING THE CHARACTER. We cant even save the game and exit! If you can’t make it work remove this game from app store and refund the clients. We are extremely sick and tired of you And demand immediate action!

Yep we got the flu and we were just about on the edge of our char.

Can you please add those dont starve together character reworks on dont starve pocket edition too ? Please keep updating the game and add new content also we cant wait for dont starve Hamlet for mobile please tell us a date release for that . Thanks waiting for a reply btw.

Can you pleas give it more updates and bring the record button back.

We cant find pig king in the whole map. Is that a bug in this version?

Ok klei if you see this review please respond because this is making us lose our IRL sanity because you are taking TOO long to make dont starve together and dont starve hamlet so please please add both of these games to ios and other platforms.

The game is engaging. The quirks need to be fixed in order for it to be truly enjoyable. We are not going to list the quirks here. As one plays, or reads the previous reviews, they are evident.

Add mods and all the features from the pc version to this game. Also, yall klei developers needa focus on making dst stuff into mobile version aswell u needa make this game more lit cuz the mobile version seems well left behind.

Dont Starve is a challenging game. If you think Minecraft Survival got too easy, then you should get this. Its worth the $5.

We absolutely love Dont Starve on mobile. Its one of those games where you can play it for 10 minutes or 10 hours and still have a ton of fun.

We personally think this game is a great game in all so its not a waist of money so consider buying it.

We love Dont Starve, simple as that. Others here have pointed out bugs and glitches that yall are working on fixing. We’ve only written a review once before, and Im writing this one now to beg for you to include support for IPad keyboards. Being able to play DS with keyboard controls on our tablet would be unbelievably amazing. We hope the simplistic nature of our review doesnt overshadow the request, please include keyboard controls.

We hope the picture quality can be compatible with iPad pro 2021. The picture quality is not very good. We hope it can be improved.

Three of our worlds have exceeded 365 days. The most frustration we have is that we cant place items and plant plants in a consistent pattern. Computer versions have geometric alignment mods. We suggest adding that as a setting option on pocket edition.

Looked interesting at first, but we will not be tolerant of any depiction of cruelty to animals, no matter how subtle.

We love this game. We played the original beta for it on our old laptop many many years ago. We love that its on mobile. However every time we try to place gates or fences, Im given an error message and our game immediately crashes. When Im using a controller, the game gives us to option to plant the fences like the game thinks theyre pinecones or something. So theres something weird with it. Other people are experiencing this bug as well. We wanted to build walls around our base, but when we tried, it crashed and we lost a days worth of progress. Im not sure we want to play if we cant access some features due to crashing. Please fix this!

Love the gameplay very cool kinda die quickly sometimes which makes us scared of the dark kinda.

Ok so we bought a gift card just for this and we love it it took us a while to get the hang of it and when we did we played almost all the time we love survival games and this hit first thanks for taking your time making it love yall for it!!

We love how you can level up and have different chathers and you can fight ours and make stuff a perfect game to play.
