first of all, I usually play games for a few weeks, if more than 1 week, than delete it. But this game grabs you and brings you in, and usually with games like this, you don't learn anything. and I'm going through a hard time right now, personal issues. in between these levels, which are named to common personal problems, say a few words in between levels, to make you feel better, and inspire you to do something about a problem. that makes this game 10x better. it's also a very challenging game for the brain, it's astonishing. I recommend this game to everyone.
Flow and Fiore
Duet hits the goldilocks sweet spot between struggle and flow, beautifully and inventively. The voice over adds an unexpected dimension of levity and menace not unlike Portal's "Gladios." The minimal aesthetic could go a bit further maybe. Regardless the look and feel is all about the game mechanics and except for the background patterns, never gratuitous. You can play a kind of meta game with duet and witness your limbic system giving way to relaxation and muscle memory as the only way to win. Kinda genius.
I normally get games and then delete them within 3 months or so from getting bored of it and needing more space. Throughout all of my deleting sprees this app has stayed with me. Definitely worth the buy, and I recommend it to all my friends. Anytime people see me playing it they ask me if they could try and I am always happy to say yes. They then seem to find themselves asking for the name. It is a must have
