A country divided by The Wall. To cross it and reach your family, you must compete on - and win - a reality TV show broadcast by the Regime.
Seemingly built overnight, The Wall has divided both a country in two and a man from his family. To see them again, our ginger-haired protagonist has decided to become a contestant on “The Wall Show”, a Regime-organized TV show allowing competitors the opportunity to escape to freedom on the other side. However, as he progresses through the camp, our contestant soon realizes exactly how the Regime and the show operate. The promise of freedom is not exactly what it seems.
Inspired by games such as Prince of Persia (1989) and Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, Ministry of Broadcast revives the spirit of classic cinematic action-adventures where players need nimble run-and-jump reflexes and a healthy aversion to falling from precarious heights. To reach freedom and family, you must lead the protagonist through each of the Arenas while under the ever-watchful mechanical eye of the Regime. The variety of hazardous, dilapidated environments hold an array of obstacles for you to manage—leg-shattering drops (scared of heights?), flaming barrels of garbage (extra-smelly, extra-flamey), inconveniently-placed spike pits (of course), hanging steel beams (so much rust)—but none of this is to speak of the fates of those you meet along the way.
CINEMATIC ADVENTURE - Run, jump, crash, and climb your way through each Arena as the action unfolds around you. Much of the story is unveiled via smoothly integrated animation sequences, within the environment, or from NPCs muttering bits of dialogue as you dive and dodge around them.
ENVIRONMENTAL HUD - Rather than having a screen cluttered with overlaid indicators, HP bars, and minimaps, any information the player will need is incorporated into the environment. Hints and clues are meshed into the game’s art, subtle and specific, players will need a keen eye if they want to survive each Arena without breaking their legs.
BRAIN-BENDING PUZZLES - Use your wits, and at times a dash of ruthlessness, to advance through the Arenas. You’ll have to interact with the environment itself to solve most of the puzzles: use the protagonist’s momentum to move platforms, flip the occasional lever, and sometimes you might have to sacrifice an NPC or two to cross a particularly spiky pit.
TONS OF DARK HUMOR - Featuring lots of impish humor, Grade A sarcasm, and comic mischief, all balanced perfectly with the dark, heavy themes presented in this dystopian world.

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable except for Game Stopping Bug
I was having fun with this game, even with the tricky controls but I can’t finish the game now because of a bug. Shortly into Day 4, I need to make my way down somewhere but there is no way to do it without dying. I checked a walkthrough to see if I was missing something and the walkthrough video showed a platform you can jump on that does not appear for me. I’m not forgetting to push a button or flip a switch because the platform is just there on the walkthrough video when the player enters the room. Unless this bug is fixed and I am able to complete the game, I cannot give a good review.
Update: I spoke to the developers and they explained that they deliberately removed this platform as it was not the way they intended users to go. They mentioned another way which I had unsuccessfully tried but I finally was able to do it this other way. So if have updated to 4 stars with the only issues being the tricky controls.

The concept reminded me of dead cells the controls are tacky and don’t really do what you want the story line seems like it would be good but the graphics are terrible this game has great potential but it seems like it was done lazily and not a whole lot of effort was put into the controls you try to go one way and he moves way to far that or you try to get him to run from a dog and he starts walking and you get caught even though you were pushing the controls as far as you can and the sensitivity barely registers I found myself pushing on the screen 3 times just to get the controls where I wanted on the screen in a place where I can use them to the full extent or to work in any way ( I have an iPhone XR and have not experienced this problem with other games like this ) I think that the game itself is very cool and with those problems remedied I could see myself playing it but right now it would be ridiculous to assume anyone would pay for this never mind the free version the only reason why this game is difficult at all is because of the controls and that’s not fun it just makes people angry
Really Amazing Game! But...
Hi! So I love this game, A LOT. Play it all the time! I’m on an iPad 7th Gen, so this bug/glitch may just be because of that....
1. The controls?!? What is up with the controls? I like them, but it WOULD be a bit helpful is the move control was fixed to a place on the screen, however, I do like the jump control
2. I play the free version. At the end of Arena 4, it tells me that I can buy the full version, when I try to do that I get an error message. When I exit the error message, it kicks me out of the game. Is this because the full version isn’t finished yet or.....
3. On game where you have to buy the full version, you can buy it from the App Store. For this, you cannot which leaves me to believe the full version isn’t available.
Please fix! Thanks!
