Description

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.

Good game

I really enjoy it overall. The story is interesting and I love the graphics. I have had some minor glitches (mostly just crashing) which I assume is just due to it's being recently released. I also echo the other complaints with the controls. They're just odd. I think it'd be better if they were fixed to a place on the screen. Otherwise a great fun game.

Not bad but fix controls

The game has a pretty good premise so far, but I just can keep playing with the garbage controls as it is now. There are so many things that could be done a lot nicer and it just feels like I have to move my finger a mile to move left instead of just an inch like every other mobile game. And then there is a lot of other small stuff, like not being able to walk around a crane even though there is a solid 15ft either side of it that you could walk around, but instead you have to do platforming to get around it. There is just too much little stuff with the platforming that makes me so irritated and I can’t finish it. Try it for yourself but I can’t recommend it simply, SIMPLY because of the controls. A simple slider thing would have worked 60x better and maybe that’s an understatement.

Nice but controls are wack

I love the premise. I was a big fan of their game Forgotten Anne and was excited, however the controls here are really hard to use. I thought it was just me but when I read the other reviews I realized nobody likes them. I hope they fix it in a future update, and as for now, I haven’t paid for the full game, partly because it’s $6.99 but also because it doesn’t say anywhere what’s included in the package (how many levels, how many hours of gameplay, etc.) so it’s a bit of a blind purchase. That’s not something I’m willing to do right now but hopefully if they ever tell me what’s included I may consider it, as long as they fix those controls... urgh
