What's New in Version 1.2.1

iPad 1 and iOS 5 support restored! Sorry to everyone that could not continue their “Duet addiction” over the past week!

Due to a bug with the Quickening leaderboard in the previous update we have split the Quickening finesse scores between two boards: Quickening Part 1 and Quickening Part 2. The former tracks Quickening I, II and III. The latter tracks Quickening IV, V, VI.

A small but significant bug with the collision detection was introduced in the last update which has now been rectified. Stage Bargaining IV should now be perfectible again. Thank you Curi42 and AW Prince for your help on solving this!

Also, don’t forget to try listening to the new voice acting from the previous update. Duet soundtrack composer Tim Shiel has collaborated with friend and musician Jojo Petrina to create the voice of Duet - all narrative lines in the game are now spoken in English. Voice over can be disabled in settings if you prefer.

We realise a lot of you just reviewed version 1.2.0 but if you have time please consider reviewing this “bug fix focused” update! Enjoy.

Customer Reviews

Challenging, addictive, mesmerising

I've played through the main challenges, I found the game very difficult at first, but it didn't take too long for me to get used to the flow of the game.

It's one of the most beautiful and mesmerising, almost hypnotic games that I've played in some time and highly recommended on its art/music style and level of overall polish alone.

The gameplay is fairly fast paced and somewhat challenging, but very satisfying when you pass a level or get a new high score.

A simple game, but one of the few iPhone games that have held my attention for so far well over a week. Well worth the $5 or however much it costs if you want a beautiful action game.

Yes yes yes

This game is amazing!
It's easy to learn but hard to master, has a ton of levels as well as daily challenges and an endless mode, there is everything in this game from rotating obstacles to invisible blocks, and the soundtrack is sooooo great, in fact I purchased it from bandcamp!
Trust me. Get the game.

Amazing

I never write reviews. However, this game is amazing. So smooth. Great graphics and soundtrack. I could play this over and over!! I want more levels please!!
