Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum. Ahoy there me hearties! It’s me again, yer friendly app pirate ready for another dose of an app review. As this old salt is adding years in me age, I begin to become forgetful. Sometimes, I even forget where I placed the food of me parrot pet and it gets really angry! Har, har, har! But me never forget about where me put me booties and aye, this buccaneer would never forget the app that I will share with ye. Speaking of that, the app that we will review me lads and lasses is called Lost Journey by DreamSky. Batten down the hatches and let’s begin.
It Has Something Fresh to Offer
What makes this game exciting is that although it’s a puzzle game, it has something new to offer that you may have not expected. It’s familiar yet fresh, which is difficult to find in apps today are most of them are just the same. The main character, Jennifer, is in a world that she has been before, but lost her memories. You would guide her in her journey to collect her memories by surpass the obstacles. The difference is that you can turn the terrain upside down and it would be a different course. There are times that you would need to do this in order to move forward, adding more challenge to the game. It’s a paid game but only for $0.99 and it also comes with in-app purchase.
Easy to Understand But Would Make You Think
The basic gameplay is not difficult to understand so it wouldn’t take time to familiarize yourself with it. There are buttons that you need to push to navigate the terrains, including the left and right buttons, jump button and the button for turning the terrain upside down. The challenge is to determine how you could continue moving forward, especially when there seems to be no way out. That’s the time that you may need to hit the rotate button and you would have a new perspective allowing you to move forward.
Dark and Mysterious Graphics
The background of the game has an Asian theme. Although it’s red in color, it still has that gloomy and sad feel, which is just right for the game as the main character is looking for her lost memories. When turned upside down, the background would turn dark, which is actually cool.
It’s easy to learn but challenging enough to keep you thinking and interested. It’s a familiar puzzle game yet it offers a fresh twist, which is not typical in similar games. The terrain can be turned upside and down.
It’s not free, which may be a turn off for those who are only after free apps. Advertisements also still pop-up even when it’s paid.
If you are the type that would not pay for a game, this may not be for you as it’s not free. However, if you love puzzle games and you don’t mind shedding $0.99, then this is a recommended app, as it’s challenging and it has something fresh to offer.
