From the makers of indie masterpiece Bastion, this stunning RPG thrusts you into a hauntingly beautiful sci-fi world brimming with intrigue. To unravel the mysteries of Cloudbank, you’ll need to fight robotic goons in intense tactical battles while modifying your weapon with powerful new abilities. Transistor’s gorgeous artwork, affecting soundtrack, and riveting story all blend to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

One of the best games ever.

I got this for the Apple TV and it was amazing. The art style is incredible and the music is A++. When you set down the controller, Red starts humming along to the music, which was enough to make me swoon by itself. The gameplay is very fluid and the different ability combos you can create really add a lot of diversity to the play styles you can choose from. There are only two issues I had that are preventing me from giving a 5 star review. First, the aiming system for the Apple Remote is too sensitive and makes fine control nearly impossible. Honestly I never checked if you could turn it down though so I could be complaining for no reason. The other thing which was a bigger issue is that is keeps crashing during New Game Plus. I was really looking forward to finishing it at least twice but it's crashed probably 10 times in the first few hours of gameplay since I restarted. Fix that and I'll change to 5 stars.

Favorite mobile game


One of my favorite parts is how using limiters (functionality similar to the skulls in Halo) I am able to customize the difficulty of the game to how I feel is the most fun while also getting a sort of reward in the form of slightly more experience. Instead of having to pass from medium to hard and suddenly feeling everything suddenly changed, I can just tweak one small aspect of the enemy that might make it slightly or greatly harder to kill, being able to choose which combinations give me an enemy which is fun to fight against. Also music is great and main enemies are largely well developed (If you bother to read their backstory in their files and not only what they say during the game.

Really fun game overall.
