Passpartout: Starving Artist App Reviews

0 add

Everything is good but one thing

The problem is that whenever I press continue it will say the act then close, it has been annoying and I will make this face for hours >:[. I am not sure if it’s because of me or what, but I can’t play it! The farthest I’ve gotten without the app crashing is when I finish one painting, my character sets the painting on the wall (I am in act 3), then it will crash. I hope it is fixable on the creators part or mine everything else is perfectly fine, thank you for reading.

iPhone X ratio please !

This is such a fun concept but like others have stated it’s really a small interface and it needs iPhone X ratio support. I would love for an undo button to be put in. Other than that i like the game. :)

This is.... AMAZINGGG

This game lets me express and show my art talent. It also reminds me of my 1st art exhibit!!! Awesome work!! Make more games plz!!!


The game is great, and I’m pretty great at the First Act by now because I’ve played it over and over. I keep winning the first act and the game wants me to move on and is asking me to progress, but nothing happens when I hit the button to move to the Second Act. Please fix it, I love this game and want to keep playing, but it’s getting boring.

Painting Extravaganza!!!

Guys If you love painting, get this game!!!!If you are reading other 2-3 star comments, they are about people complaining about bug problems. This game is short, but it’s worth it when ✍️. This is wonderful, and if you get bored finishing the game, you can play endless mode!!!!! Trust me, when I wanted this game and I saw bad comments I didn’t care. This game also gives you the option to change characters, you can be Mattshea, Draw with Jazza, And Passpartout. This game I say it worth $5. Dev thank you so much!!! Sincerely, One of your Fans P.S: is there gonna be a Passpartout ll ?!?!( If so that would be wonderful!!)

It was a waste of my money

It took me 10 minutes to finish the game, and wasn’t able to do anything after that. It is way more expensive than it should be


It’s a good game the only thing I don’t like is the reviews on your paintings that’s why I give it 4 stars

Very Creative!

I love this game! So creative and fun! I only gave it 3 stars though because of how short it is.

Updates do not work

I have seen two updates claiming to fix an issue that does not allow players to progress to later levels. I’ve been stuck on level 2 and the updates do not work. Would be a great game if it worked properly for the iPhone.

Highly recommended

It’s just so amazing and fun, and I can play it with my siblings!


The game is great but the crashing is so frequent the game becomes stale and I can't progress to act three I've tried the critic 6 times but everytime I get the letter it crashes!?

HIGHLY recommended

THIS is such a cute app! I love how much I have learned to paint from this app! I got criticism that helped make other artwork I didn’t think I could produce. This app is so fun! I would recommend for ages 7 and up. This would be the best game game to get if you like doodling, drawing, or even scribbling. I love this app because I can get different view on my art. This is the most fun game. I am so addicted!! It is wonderful the details, and the little people, And just how fun this is! Are you a starving artist? :)

love it, but...

it wont let me get past act 1!! i get to the critic and I'm unable to get it to work and proceed because its glitched!! :((


Best game I have! Like other people they think the game is really good, but there's lots of stuff that the creators need to fix. Like the CONTROLS. I think it's fine.

Love the idea but needs more

Please add more! If i wanted to just paint on my phone id go to my notes and draw! PLEASE ADD THESE THINGS TO MAKE IT ACTUALLY A GAME : customization of character, more interactions with customers, more tools, have your own house you can save your favorite paintings in your house. Ect stuff like this. If feeling a little spicy you can marry a customer and they stays in your house and gives paint orders and you try to copy what people want you to paint.

It won’t let me in waste of money😡😡😡😢

I just got it and it won’t let me play I just want to drawwwwww I’m rating it 2 stars

Read before buying

I really liked this gam me and thought it was cool but there is only three acts I paid 5 dollars for a game that lasted only 20 minutes I shouldn’t even bout the game it was a waist of money and it didn’t say it would even end what the heck I want my money 💰 back!!!

No progression.

Not letting me progress to the second level. The notification will pop up and ask, but when I press the green checkmark, nothing happens.

Was excited to buy this.... I shouldn’t have been

Had so much potential, was excited to get it. Now I know I shouldn’t have been. Five dollars to get a boring game with little to no storyline. All you do is make terrible paintings and sell them. No other storyline. If you want to be bored, this is the game for you. Wish I could get a refund.

Awesome!!! But Ignore the Bad Reviews.

I’ve Seen “Draw with Jazza” Play this game, it looked so fun!! When I saw it was on the App store, I Was excited! When I went to the app review, They were mostly bad. I got the game and I had Barely any problems with it. No Lag, The words are readable, and I’ve had only one crash happen to me so far. If this looks Interesting, Get it. It’s fun, creative, and it brings out the Artist in you! S’amuser!!!

Before You Buy, Read This...

This game is honestly really fun but some of the app’s mechanics made me rethink my purchase. Here are some negative things about the app: 1. Everything is too small! The words you can’t read and the drawing canvas is tiny! 2. The story mode can be completed in 15 minuets, even though it is basically the only thing you can do in the game. 3. Since everything is so small, drawing is impossible and if you want to draw something with any texture or detail, maybe you should put down the phone and get a real canvas. Also, If you are playing on a phone that isn’t a Plus size, you shouldn’t get this. 4. The Price is 4.99? WHAT?! This app should be free because it is so limited Here are the good things: 1. It fun to see how much your drawing can sell for 2. I like reading the critiques on my art 3. The concept is great! Overall, this app has so much potential and if developers just put in a little more work and patches then this app would be #1 on top charts. Should you buy it? Well, because the campaign is so short I am going to have to say no. I bought the game because I had 20+ dollars from gift cards and after the first day that I got it, I haven’t played it since. After a week, this game will end up deleted. Trust me.

Good game but buggy

Love this game but the bug is most definitely not fixed I have restarted and redownloaded several times with no success cannot advance past act 1 whatsoever the option appears but will not allow you to continue...

Only for the iPad

Seriously. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS DOWNLOAD! Unless you have an iPad! I payed for this app, excited to play something other than Draw Something or Pictionary and you can’t even read the in game instructions- and this was a suggested game for the iPhone X- total waste! Totally disappointed!

Just as good as original!

This game is just like the original from the computer. I never knew there was a mobile passpartout to bring around everywhere!



Progression bug

after the critic come and let’s you move onto act 2. the green notification on top becomes unresponsive and does not let you move onto the next act. you can get by this by playing endless mode and manually selecting the acts yourself but this defeats the purpose.

Still can’t progress past act 1

Kinda ruins this game for me

Loving It!

I enjoy the game and painting. Two suggestions: 1). allow editing a painting that isn't selling, 2). have the final gallery show all paintings that sold. Lots of fun. Recommended.

Decent Game

I like the concept of being able to draw pictures but it gets repetitive because there’s not much of a goal to look forward to because each time you level up , you have to do more pictures. I was enjoying it at first but I got bored really easily.

Cute but overpriced

I was really liking this game until it ended after a few hours of playing. It is a cute idea with a lot of potential but the game as it is right now is boring. $4.99 is way overpriced for the limited amount of playing time before the game is “completed”

Nothing will ever be


Please update!

I loved this game! Please make more acts because I finished this game in about an hour. Thank you.

Great game, bad audience

I see reviews on this game with people saying that it’s impossible to get to act 2, and I lose brain cells every time I see those reviews. You simply have to be logical about your paintings. For example, you will get a lot of money if you use a lot of colors and elements on your paintings, the game rates you on what colors you use and what the person who wants to buy it wants. So, if you think about that, it should be easy.

I can’t believe I paid for this game!

All you can do it make finger pictures. When you sell them, there is nothing you can do with the money. No store to buy stuff. There is a glitch where you can’t move past the first level. A month ago they posted it was fixed. I downloaded 3 days ago. 1/19/18. Still broken. Shame on iTunes for making it game of the day.

Unreadable text

Creative concept that holds promise but can’t rate the rest due to unreadable micro text that even with 20/20 vision is illegible. The alerts time out quickly so one wonders what would’ve happened next. Can’t tell exact size of font (7 pt??) as it is simply unreadable using iPhone X. Clever tools with fresh approach to game play.

Buggy, but fixable

I recently just got the game, and managed to play through it once. I really enjoyed the game and wanted to replay the story mode. However I was soon disappointed as when the critic appeared on my second run, I was unable to advance. I thought maybe it was just a minor bug, and started over. However on my third run, once again I couldn’t advance despite it asking me to. I love the game but this needs to be fixed. Other people are complaining even AFTER the update ‘fixed’ it.

Won't progress to Act 2

Love the game... BUT it won't let me move on to Act 2. I have twice played to the point where I get the critic, get the newspaper article, I touch the gray rectangle which then turns green (what is this? should there be words there?) it takes me back out to the same setting and I just keep doing the same things I was doing before. Am I missing something? This needs a few more basic instructions because I can't tell if I'm the problem or it is. Not clear enough.

These bugs aren’t fixed at all

I’m so mad ! I have spent five dollars on a game I thought would be fun only to not be able to move on to Act 2. And on the news paper where it usually says “ master skill” it’s blank and won’t do anything, neither does the move onto act 2 button. Is there any way I can get my money back???


I am pretty upset with this game. I had very high hopes for it. I passed all 3 acts in about 2 hours.

Unplayable on iPhone

As other reviewers have noted, the developers haven’t scaled the in-game text to make it legible on an iPhone. Seems like an interesting game, but I really have no way of knowing.

Wow the text is tiny

I think this is the first time I've seen 2 point type in any app. I'm amazed this was even approved for the app store. Is there some way to get my money back?


Do not recommend. Crashes constantly. I never leave reviews but it’s that terrible

Very short and buggy

You can complete the game in 20 min, very, very short. Poor art tools, not a real challenge. Game crashed 4 times during the 20 min of play. Just nit worth the money, feel ripped off.

So much potential

I love the concept of this game but their needs to be more options to make it complete. 1. There is a bug once you get to the gallery, where you can no longer access the works on the ends of the visual sidewalls. So when everyone hates a painting that’s hanging there and you want to take it down, you can’t. One of the spaces on the Right wall also hangs the work upside down. 2. There should be options to spend fake money on advertising. 3. You should be able to create art openings to show off your new painting series. 4. You definitely need more tools, I’m not sure if more come in after you are at the gallery, but squares would be nice and the paint bucket tool here is really essential. It would be nice to be able to input your own photos as a base for the paintings. 5. It would be nice to be able to see your past pieces and the ones that have sold. 6. I feel like this game could really benefit from a social aspect where other players could check out your gallery space.

So cool but can use some work

I love the game style. i didn’t even know there was a pc version till I started looking for tips on the game. However there are some issues. 1.) its super hard to draw on the iPhone. That’s coming from someone who does half of their art work on their phone. But all other applications I use have zoom. So maybe try to incorporate that. 2.) could use a tad bit more direction on how to improve art work. I know the point is to make the patrons jerks but they could be a bit more constructively critical to point in the direction. 3.) The customers aren’t jerky enough XD They could be a bit more of a jerk. Just a tad. Especially in act one. I would think that’s when people would be their worst. Also my Instagram @the_chibi_alien I’ll be comparing my works from the game to remakes on a separate app.

Please fix!

I love this game, but I can’t go into act two. I’ve restarted the app but that didn’t work. If that could get fixed, I would give this a 4-5 star review

Too easy and way too short

This game looked like it would be a ton of fun, but really it was not. I feel like I wasted my money because it is very short and very simple. So disappointing.

Impossible to read/play - so disappointed

Wow, this game is inaccessible even on my new phone. The painting tools are ok, but the only text I could read said ‘Act 1’. Please, please either design for iOS users or provide a setting to make all of the user interface larger and easier to interact with. (A finger can currently cover some of your pop ups, which apparently have teeny tiny buttons/icons in there too)

What a waste of money, why is this featured?

Unoriginal game design, cute graphics but you will be bored within 5 minutes.


I like wine and banquets
