Ratings and Reviews
I Wish There Were More Games Like This.
This game is without a doubt my favorite mobile game, and it helps that it's fun too! The game is built around this "data wing," or triangle as you get referred to later, that has to fly around and deliver payloads for your supposed boss, appropriately named mother. Now I won't spoil the story for you, so I'll just say this: the story is absolutely grasping and it really pays off to pick up the documents in each level, for they really add to the main plot line. The story is also really open to interpretation and theories, which makes everything a whole lot more interesting.
Now onto the gameplay: the controls are just a tad touchy, but it's easy to adjust to them, and I found that the brake mechanic isn't used, but it also doesn't get in the way, so that's a plus. The steering buttons are the two halves of your screen, which makes reactions much easier when trying to perform a precise maneuver. The level design is incredible, and most importantly fun. Each level adds a little surprise and some new features to be aware of, along with constantly crashing into walls.
So overall? 5 stars. No hesitation. The story elements mix so well along with the computer-looking aesthetic of the game. At one point the story actually made my jaw drop. Immersion level was 10/10 for this. Fantastic game. I wish there were more games like this.
I was browsing the App Store in the racing section and I saw a picture that had a triangle racing other triangles. I thought, cool, non traditional but I’ll give it a try. When I opened the game, I didn’t expect to have a character later referred to as “mother” talking to you. That’s when it all started. A game that I had no idea I was getting into. A suspenseful and emotional plot about a girl, and her family, all portrayed by computer software, malware, and you, the “emotionless” data wing. I won’t ruin the plot but collecting letters in each mission truly enhances the experience. You the player are set in a computer and is sent by “mother” to deliver messages and files across the network. You fly around as a triangle completing various missions. Being a phone in game, allows you to access messages, journals and other information about “the user” and her family. The ending consists of you making a series of choices that either benefit you the player, or the user. The story also allows you to interpret things for yourself instead of being simply handed to you, making the game all the more interesting. I would highly recommend this game to anyone. It is easily a 5/5 and I haven’t played a game with such passion and effort put into it. Dan, tremendous job.
Was promising at first
I really wanted to like this game at first but after getting a few levels in I just can’t. I got probably 6 levels in and gave up because of the touchy controls that seem to change every time I use them. I started to get the hang of the controls after the second level and i was enjoying the story( I still like the story of the game), but once I got to the 5th level I just couldn’t do anything right. It felt like I would do the same thing 5 times in a row and get a different outcome. On top of that the controls are extremely sensitive and doing anything more that a tap makes your triangle freak out.
The game suggest that you ride the walls to gain momentum to get through levels in the requested time, but if you go to fast(which is very hard to control with the sensitive controls) you run into a wall and have no chance of winning at that point. I tried using the breaks to help solve this problem but that made it worse. It would either slow down my ship to much, not slow it down at all, or it would make my ship spasm out.
Overall this game has cool graphics and a good story line, but it is also extremely frustrating and infuriating to play more that 2 levels. If the controls were less finicky and the levels were designed in a way that you could actually get through properly I would love to re download and play this game agin but in its current state I just can’t recommend it.
