App Review: République

What better way to kick off my first iPhone app review then by highlighting the featured app of the week, Republique.
Let me start by saying bravo to the guys over at Camoflaj for creating this gem that one can only describe as a post-apocalyptic cross between Metal Gear Solid and the movie Logan’s Run. The even got the vocal talents of Solid Snake’s voiceover actor David Hayter.

In this Farenheit 451-like psuedofuture where classic literature is banned for its ideals, you follow the games protagonist Hope aka 390-H. The game starts after the headmistress Mirelle finds a contraband manifesto in your room… And thats when they take you.

Locked up, you control the cameras, doors and computers to help Hope try and find her way out the headmistresses clutches. While rather lengthy, the game’s first episode is addictive and will cause the player to waste loads of time that they should be playing outside.

Perhaps what sticks out most in this game is the plot. It is a thrill-a-minute story based videogame truly rivals the MGS series. Filled with cutaways, twists and turns, and other plot devices, this game will leave you wanting more. In fact, after playing the first episode, I had to pre-order the remaining five episodes.

If you have an iPhone, I highly recommend you get this game before the price goes up. Play episode 1, you will not regret it. And remember they are watching you.
