The ideas in this game are just incredible. It's fun and frightening and totally addicting. Didn't mind the repetitive nature of the game play, though occasionally the bugginess diminished my enjoyment. Still, great game.

At first I thought it was lame, then I thought it was interesting, then I was totally addicted to it, then I thought it grew a little tedious. Overall, fun game.

Kind of amazed this was a free game. Contains everything I love about point and click adventures. Would love to see sequels.

A bit on the short side, perhaps, but this beautiful game is worth playing simply to experience its touching story, unique control scheme, and gorgeous visuals. It's no coincidence that there are benches periodically placed throughout the world, the game's creators want you to pause every now and then and just take in the sights. The puzzles here aren't very difficult (there were only one or two that I had to think hard to figure out), rather the difficulty comes from controlling each brother simultaneously with the controller's two joysticks. It's a bit awkward at first but you get the hang of it. And at one point in the game when you have to control just one brother, you really feel like something's missing. Great game.

Pretty mind-blowing game that takes the possibilities of modern gaming (and particularly phone/tablet gaming) to the next level.

Still not sure how they pulled this one off. It's a mostly text-based puzzle game that lodges itself in your brain (perhaps literally?) and makes for a pretty unsettling experience at times.

From the creators of the superb Year Walk, this game also boasts incredible music and sound design. Needs to be played with headphones on.

This one didn't wow me quite as much as Year Walk, but it's certainly a unique experience which may have kicked open the door for a whole new style of mobile gaming in the years to come.

Played it in one sitting on a lonely, dreary afternoon with headphones and it was an all-time favorite gaming experience for me.

Great puzzles, amazing atmosphere and art design. The free "Companion" app is absolutely necessary as well for all the Swedish folklore that informs the game as well as clues to the second ending of the game.

It's a slow-paced, thinking game. Perfect for fans of the Myst series. The only drawback is that it's a bit short. But I can certainly understand that considering it's an iOS game.

Highly recommended.
