    Point-and-click adventure games have always worked well on touch devices, and The Shivah makes the jump to iOS gracefully. It’s rare that a game’s plot, characters, genre, and platform mesh as neatly as they do in this short and bittersweet tale.

    The remastered version of The Shivah: Kosher Edition for iOS is the perfect bite-sized adventure that'll whet one's curiosity for many answers to life, death, choices, and mystery.

    Like a rabbinical sermon, Shivah is short, thought-provoking, and raises a lot of questions. It's got terrific puzzles, too, but that doesn't really fit my clever analogy.

    The story is very well-written. [Feb 2014, p.85]

    A quick and beautifully executed point and click (or tap) adventure.

    The Shivah: Kosher Edition was overlooked by most players upon its initial release in 2006, but adventure game fans would be making a huge mistake to let that happen a second time to this wonderfully written murder mystery.

    The Shivah: Kosher Edition doesn't have all the answers, but it does supply a top-notch adventure experience. Nosh a little.

    The Shivah was an early adventure title for Wadjet Eye, and it shows. It has its charms, but outside of adventure game fans, this old-fashion adventure will have trouble reaching a wider audience.
