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.

I wish there were more iPhone games like this--a minimalist, novelistic excursion, no ads, no freemium bs, just a clever series of puzzles. It's literally the only phone game I have ever enjoyed. Developers please take note, we want to play Myst and The Dig on our phones, not games that demand our money like slot machines.
Good but too short
A $3 app should keep your attention for at least a week- I solved this in a few hours without cheats. To justify the price, there should be a second story or prologue/epilogue unlocked when you finish the main story. Until then, wait for a sale.
Not worth $3.
Can someone please explain to me how "big" isn't the answer to the third word? Until I find an answer, I have essentially wasted three dollars to read a paragraph.
