I have found 8 blue crystals and fed them all to the eye creature, who now has 8 open eyes, but does not release the star ring. Is there something else to do? I am stuck here. Love the game and really want to finish! I am playing on iPad mini iOS 7.1.1

Did you tap the star ring? Nah, that's not it...it should just come down on its own. If you haven't left the area and then come back since feeding it that last crystal, you might try closing the app and then launching it again, as you should be able to feed that last crystal to the creature again. Hopefully might work then.

Closed the app and reopened and nothing happens. Aaarrrgh. Is there a way to restart this game? I assume I have to uninstall it somehow, I don't even know how to do that. Is this the first time you've encountered this bug?

Well, you don't have to restart the entire game. Tap on the star in the upper left-hand corner, then tap on the little nest icon with the arrow:


Choose the second-to-last rightmost screen from the ones at the bottom there—Part 8. Tap the middle of the screen and then tap the checkmark to load the save. However, the same thing *might* happen again, so...I would recommend that you delete the game, then redownload it and reinstall it. But your saves will be gone, of course, so you'd have to play over from the beginning.

Yes, this is the first time I've heard anyone mention this bug. :(

To uninstall the game:
1. Exit the game and find its icon on your iPad's home screen.

2. Hold your finger on the icon until the icons on your home screen begin to shake or wiggle:


3. Touch the "X" in the upper left-hand corner of the icon.

4. When prompted, touch 'Delete'.

Thanks for all your kind suggestions. I was able to restart this entire level and replayed thru to the end, but now I am in the dark area with all the red monsters. After leaving the game and returning I am unable to move anywhere, all my directional arrows are gone. I defeated the room with the stingrays and the snakes. What is going on? Do I have to restart this level as well? Yikes!

I just read your post to another gamer about saving at this point. Did not know that was an option. This game is beautiful but very frustrating for all these bugs. Hope your developers work on these issues before the next release. In the meantime, I'm grateful for the support. Thanks again!

Ack. Yeah, you've run into another bug, unfortunately.
http://amanita-design.net/forum/index.php/topic,4714.0.html
Basically, closing the app when in this area and then launching the game again will cause that to happen.
I've already notified the developers about this one.

You're quite welcome. :)

Yeah, restarting that section would be frustrating. :(
I'll notify Amanita Design about the issue. (Only problem is that I have no clue how to reproduce this bug.)
[Edit: Got an e-mail response from Amanita today—May 11th—saying that the issue will be fixed in the next update.]

Hmm....did you upgrade to 1.0.3 from an earlier version? If so, perhaps that caused a problem, I don't know. But you might want to try deleting, then redownloading, and then reinstalling the game. Unfortunately, that means you'll have to start the game over from the beginning.

@Lamkin: thank you for having adjusted the attachment of my post, next time I will pay more attention.

I don't think that the game went through any upgrade, it was purchased just last week.
