This mode is free for all users!
An all new Speed Run menu has been added. Replay any completed story modes: Story, Epilogue or Encore and do so as quickly as possible. Be warned: the game speeds up while you speed run and if you fail you will lose momentum. Glory awaits whoever can achieve a perfect run.
Last but not least, new automagic screenshot sharing: every now and then your coolest -- possibly most frustrating! -- moments will be automatically captured ready for sharing with your favourite services: Twitter, Facebook… you name it. Spread the word on Duet.
The definition of an App Game
Duet is amazing. It's a great example of crystallized intelligence. I asked a friend to attempt a level and he could not do it. He was missing hours of experience and understanding on how the blocks move. The blocks become invisible at one point and it turns into a game of memory and timing.
This is a game of skill and the game rewards that by opening up more difficult levels. It's a never ending challenge.
In most games the game rewards the player with better items to make the game easier. In duet the player is rewarded with actual skill not loot. Although this newly acquired skill makes replaying the level easier it is only partially useful in the next level. Just enough utility to maintain the balance between challenging and too easy.
After completing all the levels except for the dlc and endless I can say this is one of the best games I've ever played.
It's engaging, challenging, simple, entertaining, frustrating at times, extremely rewarding, musical, requires focus, evolving, fun, responsive, consistent, addicting, and so much more!
This isn't just a game.
This isn't a game you delete when your done with the levels. This isn't a game when you smash a wall crying. This isn't a game where you talk during gameplay. This isn't a game when it's just to easy. This isn't a game when you say "It's just a game." This is a game when you get lost. This is a game when you play for hours on end. This is a game that never runs out of challenges. This is a game when you play a level, you try and try and try, and soon you beat it. This is a game that isn't just a game. This is Duet.
EDIT: Endless Encore mode!!!!!!! I was hoping this would happen and it DID!!!! :D
I downloaded this game a while ago as app of the week. It sounded like something fun to eat up the breaks between class. I had no idea what I was getting into!
This game is one of the best I've ever played! It's extremely challenging at times, but just when you think there is no way you'll ever beat this level or master this new obstacle you float right on by. Before you know it you're living for those moments of success. Very unique control system that feels like dancing; long enough story mode to keep the flavor, and plenty of extra modes for added kick; and the music definitely makes this game an experience of its own. It's so weird how the music can help or hinder my playing, or in the case of the latter parts of epilogue make me hate everything, haha! It would be worth the money to buy for sure.
