Editors' Notes

So much more than a simple action game, Duet elevates the act of dodging falling blocks into something captivating, beautiful, even profound. A stirring soundtrack and striking visuals almost guarantee you’ll lose yourself in each stage, and as you learn the patterns and find yourself avoiding obstacles by sheer instinct, you’ll feel an overwhelming surge of triumph.

형용할 수 없는 놀라움

게임을 하던 도중, 문득 한 문장이 머릿속으로 들어옵니다. "저의 세상은 한계가 없고 활짝 열려있습니다."
이 게임을 표현하는 데 이만큼 안성맞춤인 표현도 없을 듯 합니다. 단순히 네모들과 동그라미 두 개만으로 어찌 이리 아름답고 멋진 표현이 가능할까요?

단순히 재미를 넘어서 감탄을 자아내고 사람의 마음을 움직이는 것이, 모든 것을 다시 한 번 생각하게 만드는 게임인 듯 싶습니다.
앞으로도 이런 게임이 많이 나왔으면 좋겠네요.

게임 + @ = UNIQUE

많이 본 듯한 난이도 어려운 도전 게임. 하지만 플레이어의 마음을 사로잡는 나레이션이 추가되자 유니크한 게임으로 승화되는 모습을 보인다.
다음 나레이션이 궁금하여 새로운 스테이지에 집중하게 해 주었다. 이것은 분노, 무시부터 희망까지 여러 가지 주제가 있어 플레이어를 비단 게임 세계 속에서만 있지 않게 해주고 여러가지 생각을 하게 만들어주며, 또한 어찌 보면 단순한 게임성을 나레이션에 맞추어 플레이하게 함으로서 매 스테이지마다 새롭게 보이도록 만들어 준다.
아이폰 하면서 이런 류의 고난이도의 단순한 게임들은 많이 만나보지만 게임으로 심리적인 안정감과 변화에 대한 생각 등 그 외의 것을 느끼게 해준다는 유니크성에 큰 점수를 주고 싶다.

난이도에 연연하기보다는 몸을 맡긴다면 참 재미있는 게임인 것 같다. 20~30대가 즐길만한 좋은 게임을 만나 참 좋다.
