It's app the week right now, so get it!
When browsing through App Store every once in a while, I came upon Duet. This was a long time ago, probably about a year. It cost $2 then, and I wasn't really allowed to spend any money, so I vowed that one day I would get because it looked like a great game. Then, recently I saw that it was app of the week. I got really excited and installed it immediately. At first, when I started playing it, the controls seemed completely different from anything else I had ever played. I failed countless times at the beginning, but after a while I got the hang of it. I slowly progressed through the rest of the levels in the story section. I knew it was going to take me a while to finish the entire game with challenge, epilogue, and encore. By the end of the first day, I had gotten half-way through story, and I thought I was doing okay. The spinning blocks were fun to figure out, and the music in depression almost made me want to give up. The disappearing blocks in acceptance were a surprise.
If you're still hesitating, it's only free for probably only a little while more, but until then, there's nothing too lose!
I'll give it a calm 5 stars- I'm not Raving
I got this game as a Starbucks free game of the week card over 365 days ago. I played it, liked it, found it very difficult, then left it alone the majority of Twenty-14, but the maxims did resonate with me… This game is very well made, and I like the spiritual and mental philosophies and maxims that it slides in (I'm sure many people deny that part of the game; eg.,"…but where do you end, and others begin?") I like the electronica music, too! The daily challenge and the constant addition if variations, wound up reeling me back in, and now I've been playing it a lot more. Even so, I don't feel OVERLY enamored of this game the way a lot of other people have expressed. I just appreciate the developers' evident acknowledgement of the repetition of the game, and the possibility of that becoming mundane, and they did something about that. The Encore in-app purchase is a further exhilarating step toward that intention! It is worth it! It's just too bad there are some people out there who complain about in-app purchases, rather than simply CHOOSE not to but it, and keep their grievances to themselves.
Duet is a Change... Embrace It!
I've played quite a few abstract and bizarre puzzle/indie games in my life, but none have ever resonated so much with me in the way Duet does. Duet's concept seems simple enough. Just guide blue and red through the course. And for the most part, it is that simple. But the obstacles are, while simple, thought of and come at you in refreshing ways. You'll have to really think on the fly, while at the same time you must remain calm. When you do fail a certain wave, you'll get to try it again, and when you get to the point you failed, a splash of red or blue will remain on the obstacle as it comes down, which to me is just beautiful thinking. Jojo Petrina lends her voice to an already amazing game, and it complements the game quite perfectly with her tone. Tim Shiel injected his talent into the soundtrack of Duet, making this an acoustic experience as well. Overall, the game is well designed and very satisfying. There's a level of replayability and buying the Encore pack is something I'd do in a heartbeat. I give this game nothing short of 5 stars.
