Ratings and Reviews
So much more than a simple action game, Duet elevates the act of dodging falling blocks into something captivating, beautiful, even profound. A stirring soundtrack and striking visuals almost guarantee you’ll lose yourself in each stage, and as you learn the patterns and find yourself avoiding obstacles by sheer instinct, you’ll feel an overwhelming surge of triumph.
I never review mobile games bc they just dont peak my interest to be honest i havent found a good mobile game with good structure that isnt filled with ads since the early 2000s. There just arent any good mobile games anymore all of them are clones of eachother that are filled with ads and micro-transactions, anyways this game is different. One thing i want to point out is the system I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that it doesnt brung you to a menu when you fail and you just start again it takes away the frustration and makes it feel like one long loop. I also am very fond of the level designs and music it never feels like a chore or a annoyance to complete a level. And they all feel very diverse and different, never feels like im playing a repeat of a previous level. The design is simple but pleasant and the voice that moves the game forward is soothing and nice to hear. I like how there arent any scores or timeframes you just play and learn until you complete the level. Its strange because its almost like I subconsciously knew how to play this game, i would complete a level and not even know how i did it. Its very fluent and natural. Overall i love this game its a great game to just relax and play a few rounds if u got the time 100% worth the pricetag, having no adds really enhances the experience i thank the creator for this great little game its nice to see something playable and interesting on the app store. 5 stars.
- happy player
This game is so much fun and exciting and frustratingly hard at times and I absolutely love it. I actually like this game so much that I chose to write a review about it without being asked by anyone. I actually searched for the rate this app link because I wanted to give it 5 stars that badly.
Having said that, i must write this disclaimer: I don’t think this game is for everyone. Some people will not like it, some people might even hate it, but I love it so much that it’s going on my list of top 5 favorite games. Not just too 5 games on my phone, but from any console. I think the game is genius and a lot of fun and I don’t want to ever not have it around.
Okay, review over. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy the game!
