Ratings and Reviews
So much more than a simple action game, Duet elevates the act of dodging falling blocks into something captivating, beautiful, even profound. A stirring soundtrack and striking visuals almost guarantee you’ll lose yourself in each stage, and as you learn the patterns and find yourself avoiding obstacles by sheer instinct, you’ll feel an overwhelming surge of triumph.
Classic Phone Game
Playing this game feels like you are a participant in ‘Dancing With the Stars’ doing twirls and spins to the rhythm of the music as each level gets progressively faster and more complicated. By the end, you are asking yourself, “How did I get this good?”
It is a minimalist arcade game that I consider as one of the seminal games for the smartphone. Challenging, sometimes frustrating, and fun. Great music and narration.
A Fantastic Story
Duet is a game that is truly memorable. The music fits the gameplay just perfectly and the story captures the player in a way that pulls them in. The way everything fits together is beautiful. Nice work!
