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.
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!
I played this back in 2015 when I was going through a hard time in my life and it was a great distraction. It also helped take my mind off things and ease my anxiety. With it’s entrancing music and the overwhelming feel of calmness from the voice over, this was so easy to get lost in.
I’ve been looking for this game since 2016. I couldn’t remember the name of it and was completely bummed. The other night I opened the App Store and there it was, and I was so stoked.
This app is well worth the play through if you’re going through a hard time, or even just as having a fun, time killing game on your phone.
