    Soon we will no longer be amazed that games can offer us this sort of deeper, artful experience. They will just be there and will not require preamble. Continue?9876543210 is another glimmering beacon guiding us towards that future. [Issue 1, February 2014]

    While there really is no chance at victory and the controls feel less than perfect, continue?98765433210 is an exquisite game that any iOS device owner should not miss out on.

    A flawed experience, but the chances Oda takes make the ride invigorating. I would love to see what else he can do, and I hope he continues making many more games before... the inevitable. Sorry, this game is making me morbid.

    If you enjoy good-looking games with arty pretentions and twinkly soundtracks, you might be intigued by Continue?9876543210. However, the restrictive controls and garbled narrative will likely test your patience to breaking point.

    A befuddling game whose creator attempts to mask its incoherent world and sloppy game design with suggestions of intrigue and profundity.

    Poetic and magical, Continue? combines compelling, arcadey gameplay with a similarly compelling, deep narrative. It speaks the samePoetic and magical, Continue? combines compelling, arcadey gameplay with a similarly compelling, deep narrative. It speaks the same emotional-spiritual language as Braid and Sword & Sworcery, but does it in its very own style, and with more replay value. Accessibility might be an issue, initially - however the challenge isn't insurmountable and there is help, and multiple control schemes. The creative writing, the tight, well thought-out cosmology and the hauntingly beautiful soundtrack all weigh in in making Continue? an important and memorable contemplation of the human condition in a game in 2013/14.

    An amazing Cerebral game, with deep and interesting storytelling, great dialogue, fun gameplay and very original. This game talks about DeathAn amazing Cerebral game, with deep and interesting storytelling, great dialogue, fun gameplay and very original. This game talks about Death better than Red Orchestra and yet the game remains subtle and mysterious, not telling you anything about the game's true meaning, and letting you figure it out for yourself. Sadly damaged by awful touchscreen controls, and frustrating framerate skip in places, probably because it's an iOS game. Still a must buy, and my fifth favourite game of 2013. Expand
