Originally released on PC in 1994, Little Big Adventure (also known as 'Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure') is an action-adventure RPG designed by Frédérick Raynal. 20 years later, a new version of this entertaining video game hit is being released, specially adapted for mobile phones.
You play as Twinsen, a young hero living on Citadel Island on a world under the heel of the dictator Dr. FunFrock. You’ve been having strange dreams in which your planet is about to be destroyed. These dreams don’t make Dr. FunFrock particularly happy, and he locks you away in an insane asylum. As Twinsen, you’ll need to escape from your cell and discover your incredible destiny as a descendant of a long line of magicians in charge of protecting your planet’s secret!

An absolutely perfect port of a classic game!
When I saw that LBA (also titled Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure) was available on the iOS App Store, I was excited, but very skeptical. After having the chance to play this game hands on, I am happy to say that the port not only meets my expectations of the original, but improves on many aspects, namely the controls. The controls took some getting used to, especially when doing the jumping and running puzzles, but very receiving when I took no damage by running into objects or walls.
I am very impressed by this port, and am very much looking forward to a port of LBA 2 (Twinsen's Odyssey).
Great port of an absolutely charming classic
I loved LBA/relentless back in 1994 on my PC. From music to graphics to charm, I was enthralled. DotEmu really knocked it out of the park with this port. I must admit, I found the control scheme frustrating before the latest version that introduced a virtual stick. Since then, it has been a joy to play. And this isn't just a game for old timers with a nostalgic memory of this classic - this game is really great even by today's standards. Thanks DotEmu!
A great way to relive childhood
This game takes me back, waaaay back. It's a great port of a game that I haven't been able to play on a computer I own in a long time. They've even made certain elements and controls more merciful, I think.
I hope they port the sequel, if they have the rights to do so.
