Stunningly Simple, Simply Stunning
Wow. I rarely write reviews and even then only for the apps that are truly a cut above the rest, and needless to say, S&S is one of those apps. I am really impressed by this game and the amount of work put into it. I'm typically not a fan of pixel graphics and was skeptical at first, but after playing through the game, I can't imagine using any other type of graphic style. The music is equally good, and I'm seriously considering buying the album. The storyline was not ultra-elaborate, yet it was interesting enough for me to pay attention to it. Even the gameplay and controls are elegantly minimalistic. Each of these components on their own lead to a decent game, but when blended together in such a way create a rapturously immersive and, in a sense, primative, environment that far surpasses any game I have ever seen on a mobile device, and even many console games. No joke, its that good. This is not a cheap action game or another sit-down-and-play-for-two-minutes casual game that regrettably clutter the App Store, so if you're looking for that kind of thing, it's not here. Still, I would rather have a game like this than ten typical casual games by a long shot. S&S blurs the line between art and videogames, and what results is a beautiful, fun game that endears the player like few games can. My only comment is that it could have been longer, but there's always opportunity for a sequel.
Developers, awesome game, keep up the good work
Officially one of my favorite games of all time!
I can understand the reluctancy to buy this game right away. It's very different. It isn't a fast paced action game. It isn't a casual play-on-the-go game. It's an experience that everyone should at least give a try. When I first played this game, I wasn't very into it. It took a little time for me to really understand how the game played. It's a very odd 2D point and click adventure game. However, after the first session, I was hooked. This game has a style unlike any other.
First off, the graphics are amazing. I've never seen pixel graphics this beautiful before. The world just seems to come to life through them. It's simply amazing. The music is on the same level as the graphics. Every song and sound just goes perfectly with the game. I was very drawn in by it. Going along with the style of the game, the dialogue is extremely unique. The game never takes itself very serious, and breaks the fourth wall quite often. However it does it with style. The game makes YOU feel like YOU'RE affecting this world. I rarely feel this emersed in a videogame.
The ending of the game left me very happy with my experience. So happy in fact that it has become one of my favorite games of all time. Buy this game. By the time you finish it, you will be happy you did.
