"Blackbar is a brilliant game." —Ron Gilbert

"Awesome and totally unexpected." —Shaun Inman
Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centered around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.
You'll pick up Blackbar instantly; however, its challenges will keep you searching, thinking, and trying for days.

What's New in Version 1.1.3
• Fixed an embarrassing bug in the credits.
Good, but short and over priced
Nice idea, and a few challenging moments, but there's less than an hour of gameplay, and the story feels too brief and simple for the price.
I don't think I've ever left a bad review for an app before but this game is seriously underwhelming. The story is pretty bland and so are the puzzles (if they can be called that). Sorry but this is definitely not worth paying for in my opinion.
