Gemini Rue Review (iOS)

Softpedia
13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Featuring a compelling sci-fi story set in a dystopian world, the PC version of Gemini Rue’s only drawbacks are the poor controls and clunky combat system. However, the port on the iOS platform was a very good idea, as the controls and combat now feel more natural on a touchscreen.
  • Pros: +Compelling story, atmospheric environments., +Excellent voice acting and music., +Commentary track by creator Joshua Nuernberger.
  • Cons: -Somewhat awkward cover-based shootout combat system., -Linear puzzles.

  • Conclusion: Gemini Rue is a truly great adventure game, with its clever mix of puzzles, logic and action, marred only by a convoluted aura. If this is any indication of what we can expect from developer Joshua Nuernberger in the future, then we'll definitely be keeping an eye on his work.

Gemini Rue is an intriguing adventure game with an excellent story that outshines its basic puzzle-solving.

GameSpot

  • Summary: Gemini Rue is a look back to a bygone era. From its 2D pixel art to its point-and-click controls, this is a game cut from the cloth of Sierra's classic adventure games of the early '90s.
  • Pros: Excellent story from two different perspectives, Atmosphere a unique mix of sci-fi and noir elements, Audio commentary an excellent addition, Story is well paced throughout.
  • Cons: Puzzles do little more than guide you through the game, Shooting segments nothing more than a distraction.
