The Act Game Review
In the game you will play the character of Edgar who is a meek window cleaner. You are to help him achieve 3 objectives in life; the first one is of saving his job, the second is to keep his lazy brother out of trouble and the last one is to win Sylvia’s heart. Sylvia is the woman who Edgar loves unconditionally. The Act is not merely a game but an animated movie in itself that gives you the liberty to control the characters mind.
A simple swipe on either side of the screen makes the character reflect optimism or puts him in a state of doubt. Depending on the situation, you will have to guide Edgar to fit in to make things go trouble free. But go easy on the controls because you wouldn’t want Edgar to over react and mess things up. ‘The Act’ is unique and definitely deserves a place on your iDevice; this is definite must-have for all, even if you are very choosy about the genres you play and that’s because this game is quite unlike any other you would ever have come across. The game does take some time to get used to but once you master the controls, you would not have time for anything else.
The background music makes the gameplay even more adorable. The only missing feature in the game is the voices for the characters but even that ends up working in favor of the game as it adds a classic ‘silent movie’ like feel to the gameplay. The concept of this game is wholly original and the game looks very bubbly, which makes it even more amusing to play. ‘The Act’ is the best thing that ever happened to the App Store. So don’t sit there contemplating, get your act together and download your copy!
