Nice idea but short for price
The game itself is beautifully illustrated and graphically sound. The music adds a lot to the atmosphere also, which could make this a superb game to play but for the £2.50 price bracket compared to other titles it kinda upset me that I completed it in just over an hour.
That said I loved how the developer have brought new dimensions to the game by taking the puzzles out of one app and into another and then back again. (Although you'd never find this out without reading the reviews here, which is how i worked it out). And the photos and diary add a lot of realism to this game and makes it feel like real life at first.
Don't get me wrong the developer has to make money and if you have the cash spare and love folklore then it's a nice little venture, it just lacked the longevity for me and was too short for the cost compared to other games on the App Store.
I'd like to see another title with more puzzles and a lot longer gameplay. Cheers.
Love the idea of adding a layer of depth to the story by offering this free companion. Does a nice job of filling the gaps that were left in the main app & the need to use both apps to get the full experience somehow immerses you even more by bringing it into the real world in a manner of speaking.
You need this app to complete the game, the game requires you to use it and it is a part of the game. The game allows you to log into the app depending on how far you are in the story.
