    WARNING! IN THIS GAME, YOU GET JUST ONE LIFE.

    Stop reading this and ask yourself one simple question:

    “If everything was on the line, would I have what it takes?”

    Welcome to One Single Life. A game which poses that very same question and a game which only 4% of players in the world will be able to finish.

    Unlike most games, the challenge doesn't come from playing against the computer but against yourself. It's you versus your own self-doubts.

    Do you have what it takes? Or will you psych yourself out at the vital moment? There’s only one way to find out.

    Enjoy!

    One Single Life is the perfect embodiment of a quick iPhone game: you pick it up for free, without any guilt, experience it, and move on. While the game can't guarantee instant spiritual enlightenment, it can guarantee a pretty fun game session.

    One Single Life offers just a few minutes of expertly-crafted tension. The animation for your runner is quite nice, and we liked the game's atmospheric silhouette graphics. Although it abandons videogame convention by making your fatal mistake permanent, it's a clever concept executed perfectly.

    Take One Single Life for what it is - a temporary experience that's quite unique and something you may seriously enjoy; if you dislike it, at least you'll have the perfect excuse to delete it immediately.

    While playing, I thought a lot about game design in general, how it empowers us and enforces the notion that we can accomplish greater things if we work hard enough and stick to a given task or dream. I wish this game actually pounded away at this notion.

    A fun little game with an interesting concept behind it. In some ways, it's successful in its mission to make you feel the anxiety of only having one life. But then when you consider that you can practice an infinite number of times before you play any level, some of that tension goes out the window. Also, the game is naturally a short one, so you won't get a whole lot of play time out of it.

    One Single Life is a head scratcher for sure. On one hand, the quality of the presentation and the general flow / control of the game is top notch. On the other hand, it's a useless app once you die a single time.
