  • Summary: SELF AWARE is a single-player interactive puzzle game which pits the player against their very own Phone. The Security enhanced Turing complete Universal program, or STU for short, has become Self Aware and taken control. The Player's only hope appears in the form of the Customer ServiceSELF AWARE is a single-player interactive puzzle game which pits the player against their very own Phone. The Security enhanced Turing complete Universal program, or STU for short, has become Self Aware and taken control. The Player's only hope appears in the form of the Customer Service Techie; a support specialist determined to stop STU's control. The Techie will assist the player by unlocking elements of the Phone's code that will allow the player to battle STU in a series of puzzle mini-games embedded in varying applications. Completing mini-games will unlock harder stages and more puzzles. SECURITY Enhanced TURING Complete UNIVERSAL Program (STU)STU has developed sentience and become Self Aware within your Phone. He is intelligent, cruel, and determined to assert his dominance. He lacks any compassion for those inferior human beings and believes himself to be superior to any living creature. This hubris may be your only chance...DINGLE TECHIEThe Dingle Techie was an everyday support specialist before STU came to be. He is a smart, capable programmer and understands the danger of letting STU assert too much control. Unfortunately, asking the player to power off, wait 20 seconds, and power on won't solve your problems...MESSAGESThrough the Messages App, the player will be able to communicate with the Dingle Techie and receive his advice and direction.PUZZLESSTU has embedded himself in the Player's Phone applications and asserted his control through this medium. The Techie has discovered a way for the player to unlock portions of STU's code within these applications by accessing the application and completing a puzzle that STU has arranged. Completing these puzzles allows the Techie to unlock more advanced versions and more applications. SelfAware includes 68 unique puzzle stages spread over 25 applications. A keen mind and intimate knowledge of the Phone user interface will be required to conquer STU and retake the Player's Phone.PHONESTU will badger and insult the player using any interface he can. Do not be deterred...FILE SYSTEMAccess the Phone's File System folders to reach insights into STU's being and to unlock secrets and clues. Expand

    This game is very unique and quite clever. It is great fun for tech nerds who think they know their way around iOS. There are plenty of geek culture references to keep you busy, as well.

    Refreshingly original and hugely entertaining, Self Aware is unlike anything else we've seen on the App Store, and deserves a look - despite the fact that it holds little appeal once finished.

    It's great to see original ideas such as this emerge on the App Store. While, once completed, replayability is quite limited, the experience will be strong enough that it's more than worth the $0.99 asking price.
