Captivating This is a great adventure game. Graphics look mid 90'ties but don't let that put you off. The game is full of atmosphere and has great voice acting! The story is interesting and we'll developed. Twisting and turning and making you care about the characters. There are some action sequences, something I usually don't like much as I am slow and uncoordinated. However, with the setting on easy they weren't too difficult. If you love a little puzzling and getting immersed in a fascinating story, buy it!
Gemini Rue I had this game on my home P. C back in the day's of Windows XP lol and i was blown away. Now I have it on my phone which is only a small cheapo Alcatel pop c1 and ITS STILL FREAKEN AWESOME! If you like investigation RPG'S get it, get it, get it, get it! (new) lost my Alcatel now using Sony Experia, wow. Did I mention that you should "get it, get it, get it " lol
... This is one of these game that you really reeeeeeealy wanna love, but can't. The controls are not bad, they're horrendous, a bloody nightmare. Story feels disconnected with a slight "lost" aroma and the whole thing just becomes a pain. Just like a tiny rock in your shoe: not horrible but profoundly annoying.
Rather good Love the ambience and general feel of this game, captivating story with good characters. Downsides are small - walking places and door opening is slightly frustrating at times, occasional parts of the "puzzle" to continue on the story don't feel logical and more like you just had to try making things interact with each other that aren't natural. I'd stress that these are small downsides.
Nice atmosphere and story, ok puzzles If you loved point and click adventures like Blade Runner, you'll sure like this game. Good story and great sci-fi noir atmosphere. The puzzles however are not great and on the easy side. Appreciated the game as a fragmented tale though, and very much so.
A modern classic Very reminiscent of the point and click adventure games so popular in the 90s (think Blade Runner, Simon the Sorceror, The Feeble Files, Broken Sword etc). Interesting plot, well designed, fitting graphics, nicely animated, great voice acting especially for the mobile platform where such things are largely forgotten. A must play.
