Clever but ultimately invasive
There are some seriously interesting uses of the iPhone’s technology at work here that I haven’t seen done elsewhere. However, there’s a reason for that: such usage is incredibly invasive. For example, the game will suddenly start flashing your phone’s camera light or require you to change the date/time settings on your iPhone or maximize the volume, etc. I was luckily playing at home but if something like the camera light flashing happened in public it would have been a problem, and having to change the settings of my phone is a bit uncomfortable.
Ultimately, I decided to call it quits when the game asked me to “run.” I live in an apartment in a city, and while I tried running back and forth a bit (as well as trying to trick the phone by shaking it, etc), nothing worked. There’s really nowhere for me to go “run” and frankly I have no interest in trying to make it happen. I think it’s an unfair ask of the player, a situation where the game’s cleverness gets the better of it.
So, kudos for the concept, there’s some serious outside-the-box thinking here. I don’t think this really works in execution, though.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. As you state, the nature of the game does bring some interesting ways that your phone must be used. For the run level, you could pass it as a passenger in a car or train as you only need to hit 3.5 meter/sec. If you’d like I can give you a code to pass all levels and allow you to proceed without running. Contact me on Twitter or through my website contact form.
Great game! Very engaging
Definitely a great game, in a similar vein to “The Guides” but making more use of environmental factors and sensors. Big fan of the gameplay and the story, though the story could be a little more developed. Puzzles were a great level of difficulty, most requiring only a few minutes to crack and those where I got stuck would usually come to me in a “eureka!” moment after a few hours.
One suggestion - **spoiler alert** - changing date/time settings on a device isn’t great for those of us with corporate integrations that freak out when you do something like that. I had Exchange calendar troubles for days after solving that puzzle. It also might not be the best or most accommodating idea to have puzzles that require physical activity - what about disabled players?
Otherwise, great effort and I can’t wait for the next chapters!
Simple Privacy Solutions
After reading the responses to others who complained about this it’s all for gameplay purposes but this should have easily been resolved.
1. You do not need gps to track movement, something people running in place noticed when they couldn’t progress. I have location services disabled entirely and my phone can still record my steps... I’m holding a pedometer!
2. Camera is tricky because it’s for more than simple photos but they have a way to bypass it already so why not let the player opt out at the start with a warning?
Developer Response ,
The camera is for AR so no way to experience the AR without granting camera access. And the location services registers the speed of your device which uses the GPS to do that calculation. You can email email@example.com and they will take care of you. Sorry for the inconvenience.
