Praise for Lifeline:
“I’ve played many games that I find engrossing, but Lifeline may be one of the first that changed the way I thought about my daily routine, which leapt off the screen and became a part of my lived experience.” - Eli Cymet, Gamezebo

“For a few brief hours I cared – really cared – about the fate of a completely fictional character. I don’t think any other game I’ve played has made me feel that way before.” - Matt Thrower, PocketGamer

Amazing as always

I'm a massive fan of the series and unlike other apps I always buy them as soon as I can, but i guess that it reminds me of my old school fighting fantasy style books with a twist. This one is great, it's got a mixture of criminology, the supernatural and your literally helping a detective on a murder case. I presume this is wrote by a different author as it seems to have grammatical errors and i don't feel as close to the character as the others, but this one is more about the story, and wow what a story with turns and twists! Also the nice nods to the other title is a great little additive to make you feel closer. My main qualm is that I can't seem to set my notifications to how I want them, I seem to now have to have the app running in the background and set as individual, or it doesn't show and I often forget. Plus, when you open the app you have to wait for all the notifications to come through before reading. Except for that it would be five stars as once again, lifeline has outdone itself and Im very happy to join the saga, once again. Keep it up!

Brilliant game! However...

I think that the game is brilliant, I just have one complaint, after I was given a choice [ I think maybe halfway through the game] it gave a response as usual but after that one message nothing happened ( it doesn't say alex is busy or anything like that) I'm giving this a 4 star review because I really enjoyed this game and don't really want to start again. :(

Great as always

As a fan of the Lifeline series this one is definitely one of the better games. (I didn't enjoy lifeline 2 as much, and 3 was good but not as good as 1 (amazing), 4 (really good) or this one). The story is interesting and compelling, the choices are difficult but that only makes the game better. I wasn't the happiest with the ending, but if they make a direct sequel to this (e.g. Like the 3rd lifeline was to the 1st) then I'm fine with it. I was worried the game would be a bit short, but it actually went on longer than I expected. There were some things that weren't explained that I wish were, and I did have a google some solutions. However, I still love this game.

It is absolutely worth the price, but I still think the original is the best. I'd rank it 2nd along with Whiteout.
