    While Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins isn’t all that mysterious for a found phone game, it does act as an enjoyable, well-produced epilogue to one of Who’s greatest episodes.

    Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is yet another fantastic found phone game from Kaigan. The puzzles may not be particularly inventive or challenging but the story is well-written and all the nods to the show are a delight to discover. It's a harder sell to anyone who's never seen Doctor Who but if you give a Blink a watch before playing I'm sure you'll like it too.

    No, it’s no great science fiction classic, but it’s a bright, silly tale with what were once one of the best ever Whovian enemies, managing to be scary once more. (I shall never forgive Moffatt for the Statue Of Liberty. Ever.) And at just a fiver on PC, or three quid on phones, it’s a good two or three hours of distracting fun.

    Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is not the strongest title by Kaigan Games, but it's certainly better than their most recent efforts. A guided experience led mostly by a pre-established fictional universe takes a lot of the mystery out of searching through this lost phone, but it manages to do enough character work to keep you invested in seeing it through.
