Lost Twins - A Surreal Puzzler for Android is a delightful puzzle game that’s fun for kids and adults alike. You play as a set of twins that start off in different parts of each level. You can swap between each of them, and the idea is to get them both to the exit.
I actually had a lot of fun with this game because it took some thinking, but wasn’t overly taxing. Plus it was a game I knew my kids would like too. You control each twin individually and the controls are really responsive. I was never frustrated by them, and the game ran smoothly.
The levels are made of 3 puzzle pieces and connect to each other in certain ways. Finding how they connect to traverse the level is part of the puzzle, but there is also a hidden puzzle piece and 3 stars to collect along the way. As you progress through the stages the game throws in other gameplay elements to add a bit more to each level’s design. I felt that the pace was really comfortable for me, and would probably be challenging enough to keep any child occupied for a while.
Lost Twins - A Surreal Puzzler has a cool art style, an interesting premise, and responsive controls. That’s pretty much the perfect ingredients for any good game. I liked the pacing and never found myself frustrated. The game ran well and level progression was entertaining enough to keep my interest for quite a long play session, which is somewhat rare for most mobile games. My only complaint is that, while the ads aren’t intrusive, they take every opportunity to throw them at you.
