A Well-Deserved 5 Stars

I very VERY rarely rate and review apps, especially games. However, I feel compelled to let you know that you've done a terrific job. To keep this review brief, the game is so simple, the controls are easy to learn, the story is dark and mysterious, the gameplay is elegant, beautiful, and seamless, the absence of saving but the presence of autosaving is a flawless combination, making for intuitive and immersive experiences, and I love this game because it is absolutely flawless. I have yet to play it for more than about two hours, and I haven't finished it yet, but when I do inevitably finish it, I'm certain that I will wish that it were longer. Thank you so much for delivering a wonderful, simple, elegant, and innovative game. So few games these days are simple and elegant to this degree, so thank you for making a game perfectly suited for me. If you're a consumer who is unsure of whether or not to blow two dollars here, you won't easily find a better use for your pocket change. The deal is ridiculous. Buy it now, and pray with me that there's an identical sequel.

Comes Across as Tedious because of the Controls

I think I would like this game if it didn't seem like I was doing the same thing over and over and over, which I am because the touch controls are just too finicky to get to work consistently. I try to grab and pull and he reaches then passes, then reaches and pushes, then reaches and passes, then reaches and pushes, then reaches and pulls and... too late. Start over.

The game is supposed to be about solving the puzzles, not manipulating the character actions. I would give the game 5 stars for the visuals, the sounds, the creepiness, the atmosphere, but I just keep putting it away because I get tired of focusing only on the controls. I no longer notice anything else. It becomes no fun.


UPDATE: Now it frustrates me even more. Lack of usability on touch device. Dragging my finger around just to get this guy to move and such is so much more frustrating than on any other game I've played.

I think I have worn off my fingerprint.


When I first saw the launch title, at first I thought it was going to be a very linear and simple play through, but even from the starting cutscene the game transforms into an entirely new perspective.

I think the fact that the main character is a kid (Not seen too often in most games), you become more attached to the character, trying harder not to fail for his sake. It definitely ups the spirit of the atmospheric horror as you guide him through ultimate doom.

The surreal plot line draws emotion from the start to the very end, while leaving you to imagine an appropriate ending. The feeling of the game is a more passive, sad but at the same time intense, which is why this is a great side-scroller recommended to those who like a change.
