    Gemini Rue's review

    Published: 2014-01-14, by Peter Warrior.

    The original PC game, delicately ported to mobile.

    8.6
    • Atmosphere, graphics and sound
    • Storyline and classic graphics adventure feeling
    • It adds nothing to the original game

    "The fate of the galaxy at stake"

    Although is understandable that the $4 tag will discourage some, those daring enough to install Gemini Rue will find a beautiful game set on a futuristic dystopic setting. A game about survival first, but about the fate of mankind at the end.

    This version of Gemini Rue is a port of the original PC 2011 game, conveniently fit for touch screens. Everything good from the original game has been brought, though all the cliches have also found their way through. As too many other ports, we have to praise how faithful is to the original in every sense and how wonderful is to (re)play those outstanding games on our mobile devices; but also regret this as the lost chance it is to add something to it, something able to multiply users' experience knowing what we know now.

    Anyway, no matter how you look at it, it's an awesome graphic adventure with an outstanding atmosphere and a more than worthy storyline.

    And it's quite long, so you'll recoup your investment.

    Description

    Pocket Gamer: Game of the Week "You'll rue the day you missed this one."

    Kotaku "There's something comforting about the cold and dreary future of Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue."

    Joystiq "Being able to play such a well-crafted interactive story on the go was an attractive option for me from the beginning, and Gemini Rue proves to be a great example of how the adventure genre can be adapted to a mobile platform. "

    MacLife "If you like unspooling a good sci-fi detective story, Gemini Rue is well worth the investment. 4/5"

    Edge Online "Gemini Rue is an accomplished homage that rivals the very titles that influenced it. 8/10"

    Washington Times "It’s an old school masterpiece, requiring hours of game play that stimulates the brain rather than trigger finger."

    App Spy "This is an excellent port of an excellent adventure. 4/5"

    DESCRIPTION

    A sci-fi noir adventure in the tradition of "Blade Runner" and "Beneath a Steel Sky."

    Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

    Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

    As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

    Looks nice. Atrocious combat ruins the experience.

    This game is excellent. Developer's commentary does not work on Android, but the game runs perfectly.

    For a couple of minutes, I was a little put off by the early 90's 8 bit graphics but I soon got sucked in by the great storyline and forgot all about it. After a while, I came to the point where I enjoyed them and couldn't imagine the game any other way. Great cinematic storytelling. Even in 8 bit rendering.

    I absolutely love these type of games. This 1 is great. I do have a problem though, I am stuck in the stairway on to the roof where Azriel and Mathius are supposed to meet with Kane, to be picked up and taken off planet. I am unable to get the door to the roof open. Very frustrating. Can you help me out please? I have tried re-playing from the start of the game to see if I missed anything. Not as far as I can tell. HELP!!!!!
