Ratings and Reviews
But the ending......?
The five chapters that comprise Fran Bow were extremely enjoyable to play. The first four chapters were especially mesmerizing and captivating however, the second half of Chapter 5 felt rushed. I feel as if a lot could have been added to help enhance the story line and it would have not only extended the gameplay but it would serve to clear up a lot of the confusion that only resulted, for me at least, in a weak conclusion of the plot. The experience of Chapter 5 was overwhelmingly anti-climatic in my opinion.
I wish this never had to end.
Although there were a few too many open ends for me, as noted by some other reviewers, Chapter 5 was still a fabulous continuation of Fran's story. I hope the unresolved plot points mean that there will be a sequel.
This game was a quirky, brilliant work of art, and I am beyond impressed that the concept, programming, script, graphics, etc. were the product of two people's dedication. I can't wait to see more from them.
I also hope that this game gets the public recognition that it deserves and is designated by Apple as an Editor's Choice...this is so much better than some of the other trite drivel given that label and attention.
Love the storyline & the puzzles
Great story and interacting with characters. Would recommend this to book readers who like to immerse themselves in a story. Loved Fran and Mr Midnight!
The only frustration I encountered was the puzzle that required a very specific way of clicking even though I had the right answer. Fortunately, this happens on occasion and didn’t stop me from purchasing the other chapters.
Wonderful artwork makes this even more enjoyable to play.
