Great game!


A few weeks ago, I underwent a ”chat story” stage. I found some chat story apps like Yarn and such, but they all included the need to put money into the game, which I do not like. But Cliffhanger didn't give you a twenty-minute wait every two taps; it gave you time to enjoy it and left you on a ”cliffhanger” afterward (I'm so sorry for that pun). But, if you were really deep into the story, you could always watch a quick thirty-second add and skip the wait, which Yarn rarely offered.
I would like to see the return of the Comedy page, for Richard Mustaine was most definitely my favorite Cliffhanger author. His stories were always a mix of humor and suspense, like a minor Rick Riordan or Jennifer Neilsen. I later deleted the game since my storage was getting full, but, a few days ago, I thought about downloading the app again. So I did and saw that, sadly, my favorite category had been taken down. Of course, the stories on the Comedy page are still offered, they just aren't mentioned as being humorous. I can't usually take the horror ones (it’s not that they scare me, I just find them intense and unnerving) so I often turned to that page for a good laugh.
Other than that, I have no complaints for the app. I think that it is the very best chat story app put there today and I'm very pleased with it. So, whether you're looking for a good scare or simply something to do, I vouch for Cliffhanger.

Creative and interesting but...


I love the stories and the unique way they are told. I went ahead and subscribed to get access to everything and the cost honestly isn’t that much. The one thing I do wish they would improve is that every time I start the app it auto plays into a random story and I can’t exit to browse other stories until I click through the chapter. If that could be added in a future update I would easily 5 Star this.

Update: ok I’ve had this over a week now and I’m going to cancel my membership. Some stories are good, some are mediocre. I wouldn’t expect different from even a subscription ebook service, I’m ok with that. What really bothers me is that now when I open the app it auto plays through stories I’ve already read (so maybe the auto play was random but I read them or it isn’t marking them as read? IDK) And I can’t get out of it until I click through the whole stupid thing. It is very much a programming issue with the app. I just wish it wouldn’t auto play anything at all. It’s become a deal breaker. How was this
Oh, and btw, only the first couple “hook” stories had pictures and recordings that I could see from subscribing. Most just said “X send a picture of Y” or “you received a video.” But it was just a message with no media. It was a HUGE rip off. Do not subscribe.



This is actually really good! Even better than HOOKED. Only because you can interact at times and pick what you want the character to say. One thing I have to say about this is the videos and pictures that come In during a story. Some of them tend to kind of mess up the suspense and horror. For example. I was reading one and she was texting her boyfriend, while she was stuck out in the middle of no where long story short someone was trying to hurt her. When she found someone else that he had killed while running from him she sent a pic of the dead girl. And her boyfriend point out how the girl he killed looked a lot like her. Mind u the picture that was shown, had a brunette girl laying dead, but yet later in the story, she sent a him a video of her. She is blonde.??? This makes no sense. Big explanation I know, but it’s a very small flaw for a great app, although some stories are too short and kinda point less the good ones make up for it all. Worth the money to me, not sure why everyone is complaining about that.
