Pocket Gamer: Game of the Week "You'll rue the day you missed this one."
Kotaku "There's something comforting about the cold and dreary future of Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, the pixelated PC masterpiece now available on iOS."
Joystiq "Being able to play such a well-crafted interactive story on the go was an attractive option for me from the beginning, and Gemini Rue proves to be a great example of how the adventure genre can be adapted to a mobile platform. "
MacLife "If you like unspooling a good sci-fi detective story, Gemini Rue is well worth the investment. 4/5"
Edge Online "Gemini Rue is an accomplished homage that rivals the very titles that influenced it. 8/10"
Washington Times "It’s an old school masterpiece, requiring hours of game play that stimulates the brain rather than trigger finger."
App Spy "This is an excellent port of an excellent adventure. 4/5"
A sci-fi noir adventure in the tradition of "Blade Runner" and "Beneath a Steel Sky."
Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.
Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.
As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

The story is gripping and made it very hard to put down, really enjoyed everything about it. My ultra picky comments, I know this is a direct port so you could probably charge less than £5, also you should update the character profile pics as they were clearly made for tiny resolution screens as they look very blurry on this game which cheapens it a tad. Surely if it's pixel art it should be easy to scale up the images without them blurring??
Alright but not great
Overall, this is a decent game but it suffers by being far worse than other Wadjet Eye games. The story is nearly great, but it all feels somehow both slightly confusing and really simplistic at the same time. The characters aren’t very interesting. The control method is fiddly, especially when it comes to certain movements. For example, you shouldn’t have to tell the character to go through a door after you’ve just done “use door”.
Basically, if you haven’t played Shardlight yet, get that instead!
Such a good game, I bought it on a whim expecting it to be like a noir broken sword, but it was so much more than that. I was very similar to Blade Runner by Westwood. A game I played over and over back in the day. Yeah it's shorter and (I presume) without the various endings etc, but it's still a Great game.
Highly recommend for point and click adventure fans.
