From the makers of indie masterpiece Bastion, this stunning RPG thrusts you into a hauntingly beautiful sci-fi world brimming with intrigue. To unravel the mysteries of Cloudbank, you’ll need to fight robotic goons in intense tactical battles while modifying your weapon with powerful new abilities. Transistor’s gorgeous artwork, affecting soundtrack and riveting story all blend to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

Loved it

Serana Reyes

Let me start off by saying this game is not for everyone and you need to know what you're getting yourself into to fully enjoy it.

For me it was the first time I played a game like this and it was tough to figure everything out (other games just hand everything over on a silver platter).The game mechanics were quite something to get used to, a lot of the fights were hard to get through (I absolutely refused to lose even a single function) and the story was extremely confusing at first.

But all that suffering was worth it, and the satisfaction from winning battles was great. The story had me in tears and I even ended up getting attached to Red's man friend voice lover thing(?). The art was beautiful, and I really enjoyed the general aesthetic of the game. The music was absolutely amazing.

In general this game was quite dark but beautiful and took some warming up to.

I bought it spontaneously while away from home, plus unable to play on pc, and was pleasantly surprised with what a good purchase it was.

Tl;dr Extremely challenging but extremely fun.

Don't buy if you have the iPhone X


Brilliant game. Great fun and especially good to play with a controller like the Gamevice... but unfortunately it's completely unoptimised for the iPhone X. I could forgive not stretching to the full width of the device because that may be a fair bit of work involved in adjusting the aspect ratio, but the game doesn't even use the full vertical height of the screen! The result looks really poor, which is a shame for such a beautiful game :(.
