    A quality adventure game with a sinister and twisting story complete with layers of puzzles and a smattering of dark humor and obscure references.

    My only regret was that it didn't go on longer (but sequel maybe, please?)

    My only complaint is that it is a bit short, but that is easily overlooked when you consider its low price point ($4.99) and its innovative graphic style.

    Its gameplay is greatly adapted to the touch screen and improves the user experience on iOS. Also, retina display make the graphics shine. A great game at a very affordable price.

    Yesterday offers a mature experience in a genre full of softer, more family friendly affair. It's a little too physically dark at times and its obtuse puzzles may put some people off, despite the hints system counteracting some issues, but it's an interesting tale, nonetheless.

    An engrossing and rewarding experience. I was surprised by its plot, intrigued by its themes and writing, and stimulated by its many puzzles.

    What a pity that Yesterday has such a rough plot and shallow characters, because it's instead one of the most intriguing and mysterious adventures on the App Store.

    Pendulo is on the right track. The conspiracy thriller with its’ complex story keeps you on your edge, while the puzzles are mostly conservative, but are nicely tailored to the narrative.

    It all comes down to whether you intend to put up with Yesterday's quirks. There's a good game in there, buried beneath the confusion, but do you have the patience to uncover it? That's the question separating you from this $4.99 (limited time sale) iPhone and iPad title.

    Yesterday is a sick, twisted and adult adventure that represents a new course for Pendulo Studios, but the plot is often messy and some of the puzzles are very hard to work out.

    Yesterday is as dark as a summer's day and as funny as a kick in the teeth. The puzzles are poorly designed and the story barely even makes sense. Leave this one in the past.
