A beautiful game, Alone is a testament to fantastic design, meticulous crafting, and attention to detail. The designers at Laser Dog Games are truly dedicated to making something special, and with this title, they have fully succeeded.
The twitch, refined gameplay is heavily addictive and exceptionally fun. I could write an entire review simply praising the gameplay, but in order to avoid sounding boring, I will sum it up in one word: awesome. There was never a dull moment in this game, and I would recommend it on gameplay alone, but that is only one of its many, incredible attributes. The graphical display is engrossing and with multiple beautiful backgrounds, I found myself wrapped up in the story they told and the work that went into coding them. The music is perfectly thematic and thrilling, and really makes you want to play. Just one more time.
That is the core of this gaming experience. It makes you, regardless of how many times you have failed, pick up your device again and relaunch. As the years go by and apps are removed, shifted, or added to my phone, one app will always remain. It will stay there forever, because Alone is not the type of game that you delete. It's the type of game that you experience, feel, and love.
I bought this right after buying Downwell. I hesitated buying this in the past because of the perceived difficulty. In my opinion this game is not as hard as Downwell and the controls work better.
I'm addicted to both games at the moment, but I keep going back to Alone. I think replay value will end up going to Downwell but this game should not be passed up if you have any inclination to endless runners.
Also, try turning your iPhone to portrait and running either top to bottom or bottom to top. I ended up getting longer runs in this orientation. I learned that from a previous reviewer😉
Request: sensitivity dial for ship controls. You really should be able to adjust this.
Most amazing iOS game ever.
I do not say that lightly. I've played plenty of good games. Honestly, I take time out of my PC or console gaming time to play this.
You've gotta respect a game when its easiest difficulty is "Hard."
Another point I respect is the amazing music that captures the theme and feel of the game perfectly. I'd love to see some more tracks get added to the game now and then, and maybe the possibility to unlock new pods for aesthetic appeal, but that's just me.
The game is perfect and worth the small price tag. I tell ALL of my friends about it and have gotten them all hooked as well.
Thank you, LazerDog!
