★★★★★ The Act is now on sale for limited time! Celebrate summer by downloading this unique, emotion-packed game and help Edgar win Sylvia's heart! ★★★★★

Introducing The Act – an exciting new interactive comedy that makes gaming feel like playing a classically-animated movie. Take control of Edgar, a humble window washer, and help him on his quest to save his job, rescue his brother, and woo the woman of his dreams!

In The Act, you control both Edgar's actions and emotions. Swiping left or right with your finger will cause Edgar to react in different ways, and engage with other characters. Be careful, though, swipe too far and Edgar may get over-confident and things can get out of hand!

Everything about The Act is beautiful, from its classic hand-drawn style, to its warm-hearted character animations, to its captivating storyline. It's unlike anything else on the App Store.

With amazing, downright-hysterical animations throughout the game, The Act is a tremendous amount of fun for anyone.

Perfectly executed & unique concept but it's way too short

Unique concept, excellent animation, lovable story, medium to high replay value & easy to comprehend controls make game FUN for kids & adults... However it is WAY TOO SHORT. I think spending a dollar was worth it even though I beat the game in 15 minutes but others may not think that. If you purchase this app keep in mind that the gameplay is VERY BRIEF(15 to 30 minutes) as it is VERY SATISFYING.

Also it is worth noting that the loading time completely screeched to almost a halt at 90% and it took more than a few hours to load. Reading some of the reviews below, I have found that others have had the same problem so BEWARE OF THE LOAD TIME.
Hopefully Chillingo will update this game so there is more episodes to appease the naysayers, otherwise it may not be worth the load for many people.
Other than those flaws I think this is an EXTREMELY ENJOYABLE GAME but needs to be extended... And finally I love Edger and Sylvia as a couple! <3 ^_^

Fluffy, charming, short

The Act is obviously meant to be an arcade game, as evidenced by its brevity, its three-life-then-continue? structure, and its otherwise high quality/production values. While three dollars seems pretty expensive, it's certainly cheaper than the quarters you'd pour into a game like this otherwise.

The control mechanism is logical and intuitive, if a little on the invisible side. It's difficult to tell, for example, whether Edgar's behavior is controlled by the number of swipes, the total distance covered by the swipes, the speed of the swipes, or some combination of the three; however, even so, Edgar behaves more or less as you expect him to for the most part.

The presentation of the game is probably what stands out the most. Each character is lovingly animated, and the whole thing has the feel of a classic French animation. The jazz that accompanies it is swinging and the way it changes is just as indicative of your progress as the character animations are.

At the sale price of one dollar, it's well worth your money. At three dollars, I understand the hesitation, but if you're interested in games with style, it's difficult not to recommend this.

Beautiful, inventive, original and so hilarious!!!!

This is amazing! This game is very funny and the characters are so endearing you can't help but care for Edgar and help him in his quest. The animations flow so seamlessly, it's a pleasure to slide the finger left or right and watch Edgar change his attitude; even going to the extremes just to see the funny outcomes. The sound effects are very well suited to the action on the screen (and give subtle cues as well) and the jazzy soundtrack not only is a perfect complement to the scene, it's very catchy too!. Amazing game! Truly a work of art! Its visual style and animation reminds me of Don Bluth games like Space Ace and Braindead 13. It is a bit short but extremely satisfying and memorable.
