Twas a dark and storm night, with no lights or wifi. My trusty tablet was fully charged, so what better night to play a game from beginning to end than this? Tipping Point proved to be a fun way to pass an otherwise boring evening. I was able to complete the game in one sitting over the course of about 5 hours, with copious help from the hint machine. The game's sci-fi storyline is a little goofy but engaging enough to hold my attention and the graphics, while not “widescreen HD“ in quality (it was slightly grainy and in a 4:3 aspect ratio, leaving black bars on either side of my tablet's 10.1" screen) images and animations were pretty and well detailed.
Like most games of this genre, it involves exploring lots of different "scenes" and finding things you can either pick up and use later or otherwise manipulate to create forward progress in the story. Many games like this use subtle highlighting to make finding some objects easier. This one does for some items but not for others, meaning it can frustrating if you're not good at thinking outside conventional norms and looking for things that blend seamlessly into the background art. Luckily the game has a generous help engine, with multiple hints progressing from a gentle nudge to outright puzzle solutions, available in delayed increments. I don't feel embarrassed to say I used this a lot, as some puzzles were just impossible for me to figure out on my own.
Overall, it's a great way to pass an evening (or two). You probably will chuckle at some of the goofy narration and plot lines, especially towards the end, but the imagery, despite not being super-sharp, is still beautiful to look at. And the puzzles range from super simple to fairly complex, which should engage the mind for hours, if for no other reason than to see what the programmers thought of next.
Love this game I haven't been able to stay away since I downloaded it. It has the perfect balance of fun intrigue and challenge to keep me coming back. This game is for those who have some down time and want to play a game that is challenging but not overbearing. Also if you ever get stuck (and you will) there are hints to help you on your way. These hints don't spoon feed you but rather point you in the right direction. I also like the point and click movement as I get easily frustrated with other modes. Overall this is a great game with a solid storyline to hold your interest.
This game locked up my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 several times. I mean "have to hold the power button to shut it down and then restart it" kind of locked up. Any app that makes you do a reboot of your device is not worth keeping unless it's something so unique and or useful that you just can't stand to uninstall it. This game is neither unique nor useful enough to put up with the hassle. It's a solve-the-puzzle-to-move-on type of game, but the gameplay is too linear, plodding, and (sorry to say) boring. Maybe the game gets better if I could get farther into the game, but it's just not worth it to find out.
This game is a great search and find game. The game's story line is also very interesting. You start off in your living room watching tv and you actually get to change channels. Then after you complete several puzzles you are sent on a journey to stop some guy who is trying to take over the world! This game kept me intertwined for about 24 hours. The game is also very addicting, so I recommend this game to whoever is patient and who loves puzzles. The also have hints, but I advise that you only use them when you have to otherwise the game will go super fast and won't be as fun. THE CREATORS OF THIS AMAZING APP, PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER ONE, I will be waiting. Thank you so much for Tipping Point.
I got really far into this game, until I came across a level where there was a glitch and nothing on the screen was clickable. After working at it for about an hour, I went online to see if there was a solution to this problem. I ended up finding out that a multitude of other players were having the same issue with the same area in the game. This was a big bummer, as I really enjoyed the concept, visuals and story line. I am hoping this gets fixed so I can continue. If it does, I will update my review to reflect that.
Games within a game, some wicked hard puzzles, great graphics and unique interactions with the environment make this worth the $1.99. There was one puzzle (pi) that I felt was a little over the top in expecting you to guess hiw exactly to input the right answer, but at least it wasn't the same old thing.
And to top it off.. great nostalgia that was exceptionally detailed! Speak 'n spell, Merlin, and playing Ultima on an Atari 800 (look for the Easter Egg) made this fun to solve with my daughter.
I really enjoyed playing this app, though I did find some of the arcade style games frustrating and tedious. Some of the puzzles or 'next steps' were groaners (like having to tap around all over the place to find a hidden move), but the hints were great. I would often check them to make sure I was on track before wasting a bunch of time. It was also nice that there were 5 hints of varying detail so they didn't give too much away at first. The story line was quirky but fun, I really liked the graphics. I would buy more in this series.
I really gotta start staying away from this kind of game. I've played quite a few that have been available as the FAotD the past two months and I'm really getting bored with them. I don't find the games very challenging and when they are challenging, they are impossible and thus frustrating. I can't even judge this game on its own merits because I played about six of them over the holiday and they are all about the same level. Nothing about this one stands out in my memory.
Really fun and addictive. People who have given this game bad reviews due to not understanding, this isn't your sort of game. Really takes time to think and work out puzzles, retrace steps and think outside the box. Only downside is it's quite a short game.
