Ratings and Reviews
I nearly overlooked this thinking it was more of the usual App Store rubbish but luckily I caught the name Philip stollenmayer flash up and got it immediately. Sometimes you die is one of my favourite games so I knew I’d enjoy this and I was right. Simple yet effective, it had a nice unexpected moment too, though I won’t divulge and spoil for others.
Great game, sometimes frustrating
This game is very easy to understand and play. You write letters in the sky that drop onto 2d platforms and fall like real objects: an ‘r’ topples to the right when it hits the ground, an ‘o’ rolls down a hill like a ball, an ‘i’ has a dot that can be hit like a golf ball off an enormous tee. Your goal is to get your letters to cover certain dots.
The game is at times hilarious but can also be very frustrating. Many of the puzzles can seemingly be solved in many ways, while others seem more like challenge levels, where only one or a very narrow range of solutions is possible. Some of these puzzle levels I reasoned my way through, while the more frustrating ones seemed to just involve putting down lots of i and j letters and praying the little circles rolled the right way.
There are new mechanics introduced as you continue, but the best part of the game is just thinking about the shape of letter symbols.
Very minor aside: the game’s menu system is a bit clunky.
Definitely worth a look for the cost.
Very clever little puzzler that gets as devilishly hard as you expect it to. Gorgeous, simple design which makes the game easy and enjoyable to play.
As an avid puzzler I have to say this one of my favourites ever.
