Verdict 😈 EPIC: Awesome game. Instant classic. Get it NOW!
OS/Device reviewed: iOS 13.1.2 / iPhone 8 Plus
Price: part of Apple Arcade ($4.99/month)
Three reasons to play:
- Beautiful sprite-based graphics and immersive sound create a world that is awesome to explore, even when things in the world may be awful. Seriously the graphics and sounds are both excellent.
- Gameplay is creative and well designed. Each character controls differently and all are perfectly optimized for mobile.
- Story is mysterious and keeps you engaged. I haven’t even finished it yet, but the entire experience has kept me hooked. Not easy to do on mobile.
One reason not to: If you hate awesomeness or fun, then feel free to give this a pass. In all seriousness, there is a warning about upsetting themes, but I haven’t encountered anything particularly upsetting yet. Fair warning though.
Bottom line: This game was a pleasant surprise. After playing several forgettable games on Apple Arcade, this is the first one that truly feels like a “real” game. The graphics and sounds are excellent. The controls are well designed and executed. The story is interesting and engaging. Pretty much firing on all cylinders. Play it now! Don’t wait.
