    Iris.Fall only takes a few hours to complete, and this feels just right. From start to finish it’s an engaging and well-polished experience that finishes on a high, before the demands of its tricky puzzling take too much of a toll. While the easily frustrated may wish to steer clear, this is a stylish brain-teasing trip worth taking.

    Iris. Fall is a very short and fairly easy puzzle game, but it shines through intense atmosphere and creative puzzles.

    It’s a pity that this magical, beautiful journey inspired by Contrast comes to an end after merely two, three hours tops, and gives no incentive to relive it. [02/2019, p.58]

    Iris.Fall emerges from the shadows with challenging puzzles and beautiful art direction. Its streamlined gameplay may not always match the impeccable quality of its presentation, but this is unquestionably an adventure that deserves to be undertaken by puzzle fanatics.

    Iris. Fall is an indie game that offers a good variety of puzzles and a design that hits the mark. Its communicative power is demonstrated by an intriguing story told without a single line of dialogue, matched with an effective soundtrack.

    With gorgeous artwork, a mysterious story, and a rich atmosphere, Iris.Fall entertains for its length, yet suffers from a brevity of content.

    It’s beautiful, it has great music, it shows promise in its themes, but that’s about it. The game is frustratingly lacking in polish and originality, with things as critical as movement falling sub-par. I should say that, if you’re patient, not especially critical, and you’re desperate for a pretty puzzle game to play for a few hours (it took me about three hours to finish), Iris.Fall will not hurt you to play. Just don’t go in expecting a gem. As I said, it’s unpolished at best.

    CONS
    - not very well explained storyline
    - very short
    - can't see any replay value
    - no sense of progression
    - difficulty spikes

    This game seems that it has no target playerbase. In the one hand is easier than most puzzle games, on the other, the storyline is not engaging enough to appeal to the casual player. Handle carefully.

    It's done OK, but it's short and i don't feel anything about this game.
    It's 5/10 and you probably can find something better for your evening. Because it's one evening.
