As wildly imaginative and trippy as Demon Chic looks and pretty much is, there’s a very real base of ideas that ground it in matters of reality that very few games have dared to go near. It’s alternative voices telling their tales, their struggles, and those dream sequences do a wonderful job of illustrating them..." - Chris Priestman, IndieStatik
"A uniquely involving and often wryly funny meditation on human tolerance and difference, this game answers the question implicit in Ebert's statement: what can a video game say that other forms of art cannot? A landmark in app design and an indication of the medium's emerging maturity..." - Jayisgames.com, Suzanne
"It’s powerful stuff and sometimes deeply sad, but it’s a fascinatingly surreal world to explore. Its story is so distinctive, we’ve used a new category–Story Quality–to highlight just how important and successful it is in Demon Chic." - 148Apps, Jennifer Allen (4/5 stars)
"...at the intersection of animated cartoons, a television sitcom, and the sketchbook of a madman. ... The game bounces around between various levels of realism and rendering styles, full of surrealist vignettes and mini-games that keep the player surprised, entertained, and often delightfully confused." - Uncommon Assembly, Russell Fincher
Repetitive and dull
The demon designs are interesting and the music is good. The actual game play is crude and dull. The characters exchange a few lines of rote dialog and then some cartoon demons appear as well as a screenful of swirling letters. You drag letters to the bottom of the screen to spell “FIRE” or “ICE” and then drag your finger across the demons to hit them with the “spell” you just created. The demons don’t really move but they do fire back (you can also spell “FINE” to recharge yourself). This is repeated over and over and over and over. After about twelve or fourteen waves of this I lost interest and stopped playing so there is the dim possibility that it gets more interesting later on.
This game is really something else! It has such a uniquely compelling aesthetic, gameplay, and story that is unlike any game I've played before. The art and writing is excellent - punchy, sassy, and fun!
This is A) a piece of art and B) really really funny. If you love media that pushes boundaries you must buy this. The app store needs more of this sort of thing.
