Description

In a game, you die.
And imply that it has no effect on you.
You feel invincible in the realm behind the screen.

This one is different.
In this game, you have to die.

Think before you act.
Who knows what it means to die behind the screen?
Is it only a number that goes up?
Pixels that change their intensity?

Solve disturbing, surprising, and malicious puzzles.

Decently Fun with an intriguing "story"

So the puzzles are not too difficult and require only a bit of brain power. I still enjoyed the gameplay, especially when you could change gravity. The wording however in the background had quite the psychological effect. Gave kinda a weird look on life and the "story" is more of the highlight of this game. So overall I rate it 4 out of 5, but the fact that I got this off AppsGoneFree MAY have influenced my opinion a bit.

Note: do not worry about app reviews saying the game has an in-app purchase of 9999. These people just didn't realize this is an in game element. By that I mean you can jump on it and it is part of the level.

I won with 11 deaths

Fantastic game, blew my mind with the orange levels, they are terrifying. What a philosophical game! I love the bonus features after completing the game.

Advice: Make a leaderboard to see who has won in the fewest number of deaths! I think Apple added it recently, you can create leaderboards that are sorted by fewest points instead of most points (used for ‘golf’ type games like this one)

I want to beat the game in 0 deaths, but there’s one point where I think you are forced to die, unfortunately. So the minimum should be 1 death. That will test my patience! Overall, a very fun and frustrating platformer game.

Best Mobile Game I’ve Seen.

I’m not exaggerating. As far as entertainment goes, this is the best game I’ve played. It’s a wonderful blend of puzzle and platformer, with a side of innovation in game design, and a sprinkling of meta. The simplistic presentation is really appealing as well. Despite a short playtime, the orange levels were extremely challenging for me, and the “prequel” was a nice, deep intellectual challenge. As an aspiring game developer, the “texts” you get from the developer were a great insight on the process, and I was absolutely astonished to find out the entire process was 6 weeks.
