Review Lifeline: Whiteout

Brandon Girod
8.0Excellent
Sets up good atmosphere, makes good use of notifications
Has some awkward phrasing, very similar setup to previous entries
If you’re someone who enjoys a good read then you might be surprised to find that there are a pretty large amount of text-based games on mobile. Lifeline: Whiteout for Android is just one of those text-based adventures where you’re talking one-on-one with someone who appears to have amnesia.
Now, having amnesia would be bad enough on its own right, I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. But that’s not all your new friend has to worry about. They’re also all alone in the middle of a frozen lake with an unknown briefcase. Together, you’ll have to work together to save the mysterious adventurer.
Now, for me, the writing pretty much makes or breaks a text-based game. I mean, if there really aren’t any other aspects of the game then you better make sure the writing is at least good. Unfortunately, a lot of the dialogue in this game is kind of awkward and your character will sometimes have reactions to things that appear to be way out of left field. I also found some of the reactions to be a little disjointed.
The story itself is somewhat intriguing, but I’ve also played a few of these now and I realize that really every one of these Lifeline games have the exact same setup. Lifeline: Whiteout isn’t any different. So, if this is your first rodeo with a Lifeline game, you might enjoy it because of the atmosphere the game creates, but there are definitely better games out there.
