One bug I’ve encountered
This game is very intriguing. It can be slow at first, answering calls and yata yata, but when the story aspect of the game starts to kick in, it puts you on the edge of your seat the whole way through.
I found a minor bug that disrupted the immersion for me. When it got to the part where Morse was explaining who Jen is, the whole screen was black. All I could hear was the sound effects of the people typing/talking, but I could see my own choices of what to say. I was just blindly choosing what to say since I couldn’t see the conversation at hand. The black screen also carried out to other calls after I finished Morse’s. Agee that, I knew something was wrong. The only way I was able to figure out what was being said was to restart the game. It put me back in, and I could scroll and see the whole conversation that was black prior to the restart. Other than that, the game can be slow, but overall super fun. I’d play 1 hour a day.
This is one of the best games I’ve played on iPhone for awhile. It takes the mechanics of working as emergency dispatch operator (which already is really fun) and then adds a whole new element on top with a story! This game starts off seeming, well everything it said to be! You play as an operator with a job at this company, and you have a shift. Simple, right? But then it adds in elements of a story line, which is really epic! There are also many times where the actions you make in one call affects the results of another call!
I also wanted to say that I really appreciate being able to restart the call so I can see how different options play out. My only complaint is that when I use the “rewind” feature, that’s legit all it does. It just “rewinds”. It doesn’t let me actually change my last response like the game had claimed.
Besides that, this game is phenomenal and I can’t wait to reach the ending!
Absolutely love the game!!!
As a sucker for text-based adventure game this one has definitely quelled my thirst. It’s tons of fun, problem solving skills are put to the test, and some of the better endings can be achieved if you just put all your faith into an answer that doesn’t seem so likely. The only downside is having to watch ads every three or four calls but the devs need to make money somehow. Either way this game is a blast I would definitely recommend it to anyone playing. Probably the only thing that I’ve had a problem with is after a while replaying the same calls gets a little boring. Also sometimes when I have to go “Visit Accounting”(watch ads) the game believes that I’m out of ads for that day and tells me to wait a few hours but when I come back (days later) the game still thinks I’m out of ads and tells me to wait a couple of hours. I haven’t been able to progress through the story because of it.
