Review In Between

Brandon Girod
Amazing graphics, gripping story, addictive gameplay, thick atmosphere
Dialogue scrolls too fast
Take a moment to think about your favorite Android game. What is the story about? If you’re part of the majority then you probably really had to think about that question because story typically takes a backseat to gameplay on mobile games. In Between for Android is a difficult puzzle platformer that aims to right that wrong through the use of a melancholy story, great visual detail and downright mean puzzles.
Right off the bat, I really enjoyed the way the game presented itself. Out of the game you’re presented with an intuitive tutorial that introduces you to new mechanics, the world and its characters. You start off in a hospital where control tutorials are essentially inscribed into the walls. There’s no contrived dialogue or menus that pull you out of the story. In fact, you could easily miss the tutorial cues if you chose to simply ignore them or if you don’t pay close enough attention.
The game follows you as you walk out of the hospital and begin your travels of self reflection. You play a man who is slowly progressing to the end of his life. Each level fills you in with well written dialogue and good story. In an almost Eternal Sunshine-esque way, you will walk your character through various moments, both good and bad, of his life until his ultimate death. There are moments of beauty, sadness and rage-inducing puzzles.
The tutorial comes and goes before you really know it, but it’s no walk in the park.This is a hardcore puzzle game that wants to make you think. In fact, I got stuck on some of the tutorial levels because the game just wanted more effort than I had to give at the moment.
In Between can be purchased for $3, or your local equivalent, and is more than worth the price of admission. The game has true story, good characters and incredibly fun gameplay.
