I agree 100% lol. It's one of the things that lets down Shenmue 3 in my opinion, and makes it look like a budget title.They still seem kind of weird/behind with their GUI/fonts/2D graphics.

With a mobile game, I guess it matters a lot less, and the font needs to be rather big as it's a much small screen, so my comment is mostly in relation to Shenmue 3 specifically as the UI looks like someone just found some random font and started typing on the screen.
I haven't been through the credits to check recently, but I don't know if they have a dedicated UI/UX person, but I'd assume they don't. The UX in Shenmue 3 isn't bad for the general gameplay, but the "fighting tutorial", if we can even call it that, sums up my point perfectly lol... No wonder why people bash on the fighting when the "tutorial" just tells you to spam buttons and use the right trigger (which IMO is the best way to hate the fighting as you most likely spam 1 move, are limited to 5 moves, and don't even learn the combos of the game):-

UX aside, they could really benefit from a designer to make them look more inline with the rest of the game, as they stand out like a sore thumb. UI design has come such a long way in the last few years, and these are starting to look very dated.
Overall, it's not the worst problem to have with your game, but I just can't deal with an ugly UI Here's hoping they improve with each future release!
Yeah. I misinterpreted your post. Pretty sure the main game is supposed to start at the first stage each time. The issue I had was that all of my progress / unlockables reset when I restarted the app (well, strictly speaking, my save file disappeared).Yeah speaking to a few others, I think this is actually just how the game is supposed to work. It's like a proper arcade game, you start from the beginning every time.
Yeah Matt has this issue on his Apple TV, none of his progress is being saved and he has to start from the tutorial every time.Yeah. I misinterpreted your post.

Other than that I’m really enjoying it, though haven’t managed to get past the squid boss on stage 8 yet.
Ahh. That may have been the issue then rather than the lack of a Game Center account as I initially experienced the problem on Apple TV too (I’ve since switched to playing on my phone as touch screen controls definitely suit the game’s shooting mechanics a lot more than using a controller does).Yeah Matt has this issue on his Apple TV, none of his progress is being saved and he has to start from the tutorial every time.
Graphically I think it looks quite good for a mobile game. Does anyone know what it was made with? (Unreal Engine? Something Else?) I'd like to think they're still working with Unreal and hopefully this spells good for Shenmue IV (should IV even be happening) as they come to further terms with UE. But I didn't look through the credits, so I don't know if they're using UE again or something else.
Doesn’t say anything about that. I’m not sure Apple Arcade games have publishers per se. If this game makes it to other platforms I’d think that they add more levels, remix it, do something to make it a bit different and all will be good. If I were Apple I’d have Ys signed up to do an Out Run spiritual successor. He clearly still totally understands addictive arcade game design better than most.hey do the credits show if this game was actually selfpublished?
