  • Summary: Introducing The Act – an exciting new interactive comedy that makes gaming feel like playing a classically-animated movie. Take control of Edgar, a humble window washer, and help him on his quest to save his job, rescue his brother, and woo the woman of his dreams! • INTUITIVEIn The Act, you control both Edgar's actions and emotions. Swiping left or right with your finger will cause Edgar to react in different ways, and engage with other characters. Be careful, though, swipe too far and Edgar may get over-confident and things can get out of hand! • BEAUTIFULEverything about The Act is beautiful, from its classic hand-drawn style, to its warm-hearted character animations, to its captivating storyline. It's unlike anything else on the App Store. • HILARIOUSWith amazing, downright-hysterical animations throughout the game, The Act is a tremendous amount of fun for anyone.

    Take The Act for what it's worth, and you will have a product that is worth your time and money.

    Even with its short run time, The Act is still easy to recommend as an excellent take on animated laserdisc games.

    A beautifully made attempt at an interactive narrative, The Act never quite manages to successfully blend its story and the player's inputs.

    The Act could easily be compared to Dragon's Lair. Both are superbly animated experiences, but are quite low on the gameplay side of things. This will amuse, but don't expect any lasting enjoyment or replayability.

    It's a beautiful, well-told story, and an experience that isn't like much of anything being made today. It's worth a look for the sake of novelty alone. And while I can't say they'll all live happily ever after, winning your way through the game's brief tale is a satisfying experience on its own.

    The Act is a great-looking cartoon that doesn't quite work as a game.
