Danielluxe - Thank you ☺️
Touched by Darkenss - Cool concept
Cool concept. Love that you’re getting LGBTQ+ politics out there in an engaging way. The functionality and logic of the puzzles leaves a lot lacking. Nothing is obvious and you really have to go digging, and even then it’s still a lot of guess work, which is really time consuming. You lost me at time consuming. I guess I’m just bummed that I paid for the game only to realize it had these issues. Goodbye dollars.
Helllllllllllppppppppppppp - Lost
What is the WiFi password?
BurritoHero - This will forever be my favorite mobile game ever, maybe even more.
I loved every bit of this game, there is not a single thing that I dislike about it. Amazing story, amazing puzzles and just over all an amazing game. I’m really filling this up with compliments aren’t I haha. Honestly I can relate to this game personally but anyways, love this game.😊
rsyhtxjfygdsyhtxydjdthrsgsht - This gets in my top three games!
It felt like real people were telling the story and it felt so real thanks for making this!This game really explained a lot of problems LGBTQ+ people have and I loved it!
Carelessnoot - A little short but really interesting
I would have love a way to get hints within the app when lost on how to even continue and in what direction, but this was a great story and worth the two dollars for sure.
2Baba2Yaga - Short, But Quality
I had a hard time deciding between four and five stars. While the game is interesting and creative, it was also far too short and I feel they really didn’t milk the unique setting of the game enough. There are many creative ways to incorporate puzzles into the framing device if the game, but I don’t think the creators explored those options nearly enough.
On the other hand, this game manages to tell a compelling enough story, the puzzles that are there are solid, and the music is some of the best I’ve ever heard in a mobile game. Ultimately I am giving this five stars because I would like to see more of this kind of investigative game on the app store, and for managing to tell a classic LGBTQ story without falling into horrible outdated cliche.
NorthwestGirl - Not a game
The story is great. But it’s a story; not a game. Took 30 minutes and there were 4 puzzles essentially consisting of finding information in text messages/ emails/ photos. No challenge.
Love the story, but call this what it is. NOT a game.
m.muhlakai - Neat concept, but lecture-y
I’d read positive reviews in a few places for the game, but I somehow missed that it’s a big LGBT (and specifically trans-focused) lecture. So when I picked the game up on sale I expected a fairly unique experience and mystery, which I should point out that I totally got, but also got a heavy-handed message, which I didn’t expect.
I’ve got LGBT friends and even family that I love dearly, but felt misled by this game. I was looking for fun but felt like I was subjected mostly to an education that stopped maybe one step shy of an indoctrination. I was particularly disappointed that the end of the game was on rails: I HAD to clear the phone and couldn’t choose to be a (admittedly horrible) jerk and get the phone back to the owner’s hateful family. This would have been an important choice to leave in since it was the only time players had the choice to support or judge the embattled protagonist.
Mandajen77 - Too short!
I read the reviews on this “game” and was really excited to purchase the app. I was disappointed when the story was over in approx 30-45 minutes. I feel ripped off. I was going to purchase the other one but really don’t want to waste my money.
I do have to say it was a good message. But just way too short.....if it was longer and had more interaction I would have definitely given it 5 stars. But really, really feel like I wasted my money on this one.
nunyabiz21 - Not relatable
The reason I’m giving this app 3 stars is because it wasn’t relatable. I see now that you all have created another app ( which you have to pay another $1.99 for) that does have a female who plays the protagonist. I wish I would have known that there were separate apps for different sexes. I am so happy that this app is here. But like I said "apparently" I paid for the wrong app. That didn’t "fit me".
Whatthehec272716 - Wow
I was initially disappointed because it finishes so fast. Especially if you cheat because the only thing that makes the game long is the PASSWORDS. Which are like impossible unless you have an IQ of 160. BUT I’m gunna go ahead and give it 5 stars because of the raw untold narrative and how real reality gets. This was cozy, sad, romantic and uplifting :)) 10/10 would erase memory and play again. But seriously if you don’t have 1.99 - watch a walkthrough babe.
TarrenVane - I wish I could play this
Having thoroughly enjoyed "Alt Frequencies," I bought this one with the hope that the same attention to accessibility had been paid, and eager for a new story game of this type. I was especially interested when I saw the nonbinary representation in the description, being nonbinary myself. My eagerness was dashed, though, when I opened the app and could not navigate using VoiceOver. Please consider including VoiceOver accessibility in this game so I and other blind players can truly play the game and give it the awesome rating and review I feel it would be worthy of if I could only play it.
Tom Stitzer - Good but a bit short
Had a great time playing but I'd be lying if I said it didn't feel too short. In the end the sorry it's good and well told and was a natural progression so I do feel complete and satisfied but am hoping the next will be longer. After reading a review of one of the their newer similar games, I bought this one and two of the devs other games all at once because I like this concept.
One glitchy thing: while playing, I had gotten to the diary section and was reading it but fell asleep because it was late. When I woke up and opened the game later, all my progress was gone. I am relatively sure I didn't do anything so maybe a glitch? I used a guide to get back to the diary quickly and then finally finished the game. It was a bit frustrating to have to do that but like I said above, good game.
Supermeegaawesome - Please read before downloading
This game is really a page turner and kept me engaged. Only had a few problems...
-i had to look up passwords because this game can be very hard. You have ti read through evvvvverrythingggg...
-i had no idea how to get started because i didnt understand..maybe explain something..
-its fantastic but after i finished my options were to delete the $1.99 i spent or do the same thing again..dont really love those options..
Other than that i love the message of the story and how fun this game is. I will probably restart and let my friends enjoy the game but please add more stories!!
hisownsidekick - Superb
Went in expecting something fairly straightforward. Got something extraordinary. Not a super deep puzzle game, more like an excellent novella with some fun detective work to get to the next scene. Enlightening, surprising, emotional, and engrossing. Definitely going to be checking out more from the developer.
CaptainJess123 - This is so amazing!
I got so emotionally involved in the story that I had to have a page of notes. The creators did a fantastic job. I didn’t put it down for a whole day and now I’m sad that it’s over! I think I’ll give their other app a try too. Thank you to the creators for such a great game.
Nabzalot - What I expected, but...
I really like the concept behind lost phone games. I think the story often eats away the gameplay, though, and that definitely happens here... so if you’re not interested in the topic, it will fall flat.
The three-star rating is because of a bizarre glitch. If I leave the screen idle for a minute or two, the game resets. 4 new messages from dad and everything is gone. This happened to me about 4 times... luckily there isn’t really that much to do to progress in the game. There’s about 4-5 inputs and you’re done. Again, I would have preferred more puzzle and less exposition.
Miglrah - Fantastic Little Game!
It’s a short ride, but powerful. Take your time and read everything for full effect!
streamidol - Peachyyhope
I dunno. It was way too short for me. I loved the message and all but I sorta regret spending the money on all of it, since it lasted me barley 10 minutes, this is more of a game I would get to teach someone something. Not to play. Yes the puzzles were challenging and fun, I’ll admit that, but spending money on it wasn’t worth it. It’s a one time play game, yanno? Though the story telling was amazing, and I loved learning about the girls life and everything. not to mention how close to home it hit for me, being an LGBT member and growing up in a conservative town, but I just feel like it needs more to be a “game”. But maybe that’s just me.
fhhseyjcff - Lovely Game
A wonderful concept with a powerful message. The soundtrack added so much to the game. Seeing Sam’s journey through his messages and pictures was eye opening and gave me such a cathartic feeling. My only complaint is that it is too short of a story for how much it cost.
kendall005 - Not a Good Game
I can’t believe i paid money for this. the previews made it seem like such an entertaining and fun game, but it really isn’t to me. i’m not understanding how to get into wifi on it and the wifi is basically the only way to do anything. i’m disappointed and really do not know why i spent money on it.
daffodil04 - Good
I like it for the most part, it’s interesting and fun. The problem is that it’s not long at all, you could be done with it in a good 30-60 minutes. I just don’t think it’s exactly worth 2.99.
iAppic (Australia) - misleading
i bought a game, not a lgbt information guide
KittenHoarder - Unstable
App reset itself twice mid-game without me pressing the erase data button. Incredibly frustrating, I am giving up.
Lilbuztahs - Im getting Chills
Its incredible to think that in this day and age. You can learn everything about someones life through their phone. With a little investigation and time you can learn about the kind of person they were, the people they lived with and who they want to be. A Normal Lost Phone excels in telling a story the story of a person with a lot of troubles, with a family who doesn't understand. Its easy to navigate with a lovely soundtrack and I found myself reading everything in the phone to learn more about Sam’s life. By the end of the story I found myself running throughout the entire system trying to find a way to send a message to Sam. I was so invested in the story I wanted to reach out to them, I wanted to communicate to this fictional character. It was incredible, I loved this app very much.
qwenlynbreAnanannanana - Problem?
I finished the game but it won't let me go back to the settings to delete all the stuff on the phone so I can't actually finish it
Charlieoftheawesome - Overpriced
The game was really good and enticing but too short for the price. Overall this game took like an hour to complete and it was 3 dollars which is expensive for a phone game. The other problem is that the ending leaves a little bit to be desired. I would like to see what happens next. Either way if you have the money please check out this game it’s an amazing experience if you overlook those 2 problems. 4/5
MaverickValley - Was that it???
After I found out why the phone was lost, I went back and read nearly everything because I didn’t think that could possibly be the end! This one wasn’t very “puzzling” at all. I paid for the combo that includes Laura’s story, so hopefully that will be better—or at least not make me feel like a chump for spending money on it.
SmilingPapaya - Love!!
I loved this game. I just could not get enough!!
Roxyjavas - Mostly about sex
I didn’t realize there would be all the foul language and talking about a guys large tool. Not a good game.
Tomi919 - Cool game but mostly a PSA
I like the idea and the format of the game but I kind of feel tricked because it’s really about piling on so much information about how to “pass” as a woman if you are a man
sapphirinedreams - Pleasantly surprised.
I wasn’t expecting this game to be so personal. It was very relatable and I’d highly recommend it to anyone questioning themselves.
CryoClaw - Predictable!
I knew Samuel was gay just by reading the first text thread with his Dad.
infinitenat - Simple and fun!
Simple, fun, good story. I recommend it!
Chococat900 - Good game
It would be a 4 Star if it didn’t keep losing my progress :(
Had to play 3 Times to beat it
zutto.tomodachi - Verge of Ugly-Crying
This game is amazing. The storytelling is superb, and the characters have a lot of depth. This one hits pretty close to home. 10/10 would absolutely recommend 😭😭😭😭😭
Lindzgrl - Fun and unique gaming experience
Very much enjoyed this game, it’s a nice no-pressure type of game that lets you investigate the mystery at your own pace. The puzzles are clever but not impossible. I also appreciated that I learned some things, but I won’t say about what and spoil any of the plot :-)
Just one word to the wise—if you leave the app open and don’t touch it for too long it logs you out of the session and you have to start from the beginning. Dunno if that’s a bug or not, but it happened to me twice! If you close out of the game it’s fine, though.
mandy_lasagna - Liked it but could be better
While I did like this concept and it was intriguing and short enough, I really wish there could be dialogue like set scripts that we could send to different people but I understand why that also may not work or give a lot away. I liked the WiFi & calculator passwords because while they weren’t obvious & you had to dig a little deeper, they weren’t out of your reach either. Everything you need is in the app, you just have to be patient.
This game took me a little less than an hour to finish so I wish it was a little more challenging or had a puzzle element or something.
Grant_TB - Tears
I love this. I will be getting other games from the maker (this is my second, including Bury Me, My Love).
Cesca7 - Very nicely done
Well thought out and good for LGBT
I liked it.
XPlanchetteX - Amazing :)
This game was in a word “Amazing”. It dealt with real problems and real struggles that people deal with. Also, I was so under the illusion that I was actually looking in someone else’s phone! The art is also really good! I definitely recommend this game :)
@whoamilivingfor - Stop and buy it - it's worth it
Amazing and creative game. The story is so engaging and the puzzles are great. If you're on the edge of buying this, you need to play this.
Pros&Con - Perfect yet flawed.
The music was amazing.
The art was fantastic.
The story was magnificent!
All three enclosed in a shroud of mystery that you, the greatest detective, will solve to bare witness the conclusion that will stay with you forever.
However... the game was too short to be worth $2.99.
G.21Romero - Best thing I’ve played in a while
Amazing story and interface. I even found the text in it might be useful (while not obvious)
NonsenseSynapse - An innovative, inspiring story
In a sea of junky clones of the same arcade game, A Normal Lost Phone stands out as a creative game that really pushes the boundaries of mobile games and interactive fiction. Thank you for the absolutely wonderful journey!
redheadheroine - So impressed and touched!
I absolutely loved this story & I'm so glad I bought this game on a whim.
Recommendation: don't read other reviews or you'll spoil it for yourself!

Wise Creature - Amazing storyline
I really felt like I started to get to know ‘Sam’. The story had its twists and turns and I didn’t expect nearly anything of what happened, amazing!
The game is missing one star from perfection because of the price... even though I loved the game I only spent a couple of hours on it, and for 3$ on an iOS game I think it is a bit pricey. This been said, I would definitely buy a sequel (with another phone/character of course)

jaydickins - Incredible!!
I don’t normally leave reviews but I absolutely haaaad to for this one. There were some moments I anticipated and other parts I didn’t. My breath was held in anticipation the further into the phone I delved. There’s a level of depth and profundity regarding the human spirit woven between the lines of this game. If I could give it more that 5 stars I would. I’m sad it’s over and I hope the developers work on something like this again!!!
AWESOME 😍😍😋😋😃😃 - Amazing!
I love this game so much! Gonna regret staying up so late tomorrow but I just HAD to figure out how the story ended! The story is amazing but a little difficult to piece together but other than that it’s amazing!!!
Narwhal.master - Amazing
I just found out about this game and holy. It is such a fun game. I love the mystery and solving everything, especially the story. It was fantastic. I really recommend this game to anyone looking for a good little mystery.
Cath chouli - Superbe
Tres beau jeu, histoire touchante.
2 heures à peu près de plaisir <3
Amplement comblé !!! Vaut son prix 100%
Makaveli1980 - A Powerful, Emotional and Encouraging Story
This game was great! It told an amazing story! The puzzles were ok but the journey was what this was really all about. Not what I expected it to be, but it ended up being even better than I thought it would be. Great job!
Payam.s - Good story, OK game
The story is good and presented to the player in a good pace. As for the gameplay, the puzzles are at the best OK. I would still recommend this as a short interesting game.
jessie12333 - Only meh, and short
This game was okay, terrible and not a good ending, along with it only took me an hour to finish. Waste of 5 bucks!!
A_Duch - Cher
C’est vraiment un des meilleurs jeux que j’ai joué malgré tout sa coûte vraiment cher pour si peut... je trouve le jeux vraiment court... j’aurais aimé diverse fin au jeux...
MoonlightStar57 - Not great
There was some effort put into the game but it was just boring. Puzzles were too hard so I had to search them up. Just not worth playing
Hodjr - Just not worth it
I’m really into these kid if games, so before I bought it I read the reviews to see if it was good so I bought it. Honestly I’m disappointed, I got so bored that I didn’t even bother to find the answers myself. I just searched them up. In my opinion I wouldn’t waste my money on this game! Just not worth it
ikmyung_0117 - It was good but expensive
The story was amazing, the music was good, and the puzzles were brainstorming but not too hard to solve. I am planning on buying the next one, “another lost phone” since I enjoyed it so much. However, even thought I enjoyed it, the story was a bit too short and the ending was pretty expectable. I liked the game but it probably wasn’t worth a $4.
AshieMac - Absolutely normal
And yet extraordinary at the same time. Eye opening.
Mario3344567 - Wow
Le jeu est vraiment génial et super original. J’aime beaucoup ce genre de jeux d’enquête! On en apprend beaucoup sur (ATTENTION SPOIL)...
Les transgenres et c’est très intéressant. J’ai aussi joué à « Another lost phone » qui est tout aussi bon. Le jeu est légèrement trop cher pour ce que l’on a, puisque c’est un jeu qui se joue seulement une fois. Bref, j’attend d’autres histoires avec le même concept avec impatience!
NerlisAkkem - Nice but short
Very nice narrative/puzzle game, but expensive but the playtime. Took me around 2h to complete it, but great game nonetheless!
mokaloka - Meh
Good message, boring game, why would someone whos sooo secretive keep their phone unlocked? Makes no sense....
industrie - Lovely
This was a really lovely, creative and clever game. You legitimately feel clever when you figure out how to advance and unlock more of the story bit by bit. Really loved it. 💖
Carlossss - Décevant
Jeux beaucoup trop court pour la somme demandé (environ 1h et même moins pour l’histoire). Une histoire vide sans péripétie. Je ne conseille pas l’achat de se jeu.
Bhsbduhuhbdcsuhbdc - Really nice game
Nice game, short and sweet. It's a new type of game for me, it was interesting feeling like you are snooping in someone's phone.
Justsomegirl83 - Great to pass time
It was fun and a great time killer... wish there had been more to the story. Doesn’t take long to finish, but definitely worth checking out
Lagi - This game would be nothing without good writing
Luckily, the writing is excellent! Really great game and isea
Silf^^ - Superbement ecrit
J'ai decouvert ce jeu grace à ZQSD et c est une réussite, intelligent dans son concept, sa mecanique et surtout son écriture. Bravo!
mpanty - VERY cool concept... a little short
Very cool concept. Clever framing of the discovery of a story and identity of a person, who themselves is having an identity crisis of their own. And very sensitive way to make us discover a world that's too often misunderstood.
On the other hand, the game is somewhat short! Finished it in 2 days! Wish there was a sequel with entirely new characters and an entirely new phone to discover. :)
cratercrook - Hoooollyyyy Booooiii
This game is so damn good! Playing this on your phone feels like you've found a real lost phone! Writing & suspense are so good. I only have 3 complaints:
1. I'm Canadian so I didn't know that cities have zipcodes
2. Didn't know what format dates were in (MMdd? ddMMYY??)
3. You can't play any of the music :( probably an issue with porting to ios, since the songs titles were included in the credits
Anyway, buy this game. Worth.
DeadlyIocane - Wish there was more too it…
I'm giving this a 3-star rating because the story has a good message and features characters that we don't see enough of in interactive media, but the game is threadbare. I can't really call this a game or interactive fiction as the interaction is minimal. The player is on a fixed path and can't make choices, except the choice to not see the story through, but where's the adventure in that?
Gergilyn - Amazing!
This game was possibly one of the best mobile app games I've played all year! It really presses down on issues with acceptance and loving who you really are. Thank you for creating this game.
Mia924 - Application géniale
Très belle histoire. Concept génial. Pas trop difficile de trouver les repères lirsque tu suit bien l'histoire. Juste un peu nul que l'application ne soit pas gratuite puisque ce n'est pas le genre de jeu où on y passe beaucoup de temps et/ ou il y a une fin alternative. L'application est assez chère mais comme dirait un ami, le prix n'est rien comparé à l'expérience que tu as vécu en y jouant.
Mickwa13 - Great game!
Made me think of Gone Home and that's a good thing!
andy.drew - Great game!
A really clever story-driven game with some fun puzzles. You develop an amazing connection to the Sam
Tiiop - Great game but way to short
Great game with nice story, but the content of the game is way to short. I finish it within a hour including being stuck long time at one of the password
lavmar - Beautiful subtle story
A game about empathy :)
imycmycgeumhgmgrc - Could’ve been better
I had high hopes for this game as it looked really good. However, it was a bit of a disappointment. The game was incredibly short, could be finished in under 15 minutes. The content was mediocre, it was a great idea which was executed badly. I recommend this game however I do believe it is very overpriced for what it is.
Kelly Briggs - Amazing game !!
This game was very interesting and mind stimulating. I love that fact that it delved deeply into topics that most other games wouldn’t dare to touch. It gives the players a lot more insight into the LGBTQ+ community, which was really lovely to see. I can only hope that people who have played this game have changed their stances on this community and have become more accepting. This game was beautifully written, with amazing graphics and a captivating storyline. I can’t wait to start playing the next game in the lost phone series.
Jennoa1993 - Enjoyable
I truly enjoyed the game but it’s VERY short, unless I just spend too much time on these apps. Probably do. So I perhaps wouldn’t have wanted to purchase knowing it would be this short. But awesome, meaningful story. Do continue making this stuff. Maybe longer stories or cheaper games? Cheers
Kristy163589 - Pretty cool
Enjoyable game! It's quite short, you might be able to finish the whole thing in under an hour!
lceKlNG - A game with a message
This is a really clever way to address people's concerns and questions about the topic at hand whilst still being fun to play. It ended too soon though, I was just getting attached to the characters!
Meanibeani - Inclusive and Interesting
One of those addictive narrative-based games that raise questions you keep thinking about and thinking about til you get to the bottom of them. I only wish it had been longer :(
Swagface64 - Best game on iPhone
And I say that not only because it's fun and rewarding game, but because it also showed me the errors of my ways and taught me how to be a better person in a world like ours today. Not many games in life can teach you this, but this is one of those games that can.
dislocatex - Incredibly boring
This game's story content is entirely benign and vacuous, using a bland coming-to-terms plot of a trans kid in place of something of worth or interest. I'm gay and this was an absolute snooze. It stinks of pushing an agenda also rather than focussing on creating a good story for a story's sake and a fun game. Don't purchase.
Allthewaydownunder - Kinda Funny sent me here
Fantastic mobile experience that recreates finding a lost phone full of mystery and secrets.. Gets the Greg Miller approval 👍

thoolihan - Short and worthwhile story
It's an interesting concept for a game and a well told story. Buy and enjoy
Bambiland - Excellent
It was such a good story. I was very invested and had just the right mix of a bit of puzzle and a story where I needed to know more!
Patrick&Sara - Overall ok with an average plot.
You find a phone and compelled to look thru it. The APP Store sells it as a mystery, but turns out, without giving plot, is a quick coming-of-age tale.
The music is nice.
Real photos would have made for a better experience, but I'm sure it was done for budget reasons.
Not much regards of mystery or a big reveal.
Thinking about the main character's plight, however is sad.
MandyJoBo - Played Until My Phone Died
I could not stop. For anyone who’s very curious (ahem...nosy) by nature, this game will be a delight. I cried at the end, and now I’m wondering what’s in store for Sam.
I don’t know if everyone would play this the same way, so I’m sure experiences will vary greatly. Luckily for me, I seemed to stumble upon the key bits of info in the perfect order by just naturally snooping around the way I would.
More of these “lost phone” games, please! A good thriller would be extra nice!!
😎 SPOILERS AHEAD
I think the password for her calculator was too hard. I mean, other than the WiFi password, everything had been dates. I tried all dates related to the LGBT group/book club, parade, etc. I had to search online to see what it was.
jason++ - More PSA than game - spoilers
I finished this ‘game’ a few minutes at a time over the course of a couple days. I was intrigued at first, but it soon became apparent that this is not so much a game meant to be enjoyable for the players as it is a means to push a message. The reveal has the player reading long passages of a fake forum meant to give insight into the life of the main character who is transgender.
I’m not upset about the message, but I feel that the game was incorrectly described in the App Store. The developers true aim is to help people empathize with trans people. But they pretend that the game is a mystery/voyeur game to attract interest that they know would not exist if they were forthcoming about their motives.
I am a supporter of the LGBTQ community, but I feel like I got tricked and ripped-off with this purchase. Honestly, I would have been better off spending an hour or two reading over an LGBTQ subreddit.
JustAReviewer.... - Amazing!
This game was great, I've always loved these types of games! Uncovering the secrets and story was fun and I enjoyed the message of the game.
adamkynaston - Please Just Do This.
This left me feeling emotional and unsettled in the next possible way. What a beautiful, eye opening story. Please play this!!!
kado'10 - powerful
Didn't realize the game would be so relatable for so many people. Would love to see a sequel into Sam's world!!
Naluforever22145 - Wow... just wow...
That game was truly incredible.. there are other games out there like this and I love playing them but this one... this one felt different, it is different. And it's so.. so good. I love it. It's something that I will play again.
shaylamariah - I'm lost for words
I never thought in a million years that I would EVER write an (honest) review for a game but today- my mind is changed. This game is amazing. When I got to the end, i was speechless by what i had to do and when i did it, i cried. there's so much hatred in this world right now simply because people just don't have the time to stop the hatred and just listen. "it" doesn't have to be your lifestyle for a person to need to understand equity. this game really shocked me and if only one person learned something by playing this game, then it was worth it. thank you for this touching story. very emotional.
Whitebutmexican - Amazing
Probably one of the best mobile games I have ever played.
invisiblewolfma - Eh
The story line was good, however I downloaded it an hour ago and already have it finished with no outside help. Maybe if each time you passed it it created a new level that was harder?
AmaraZemni - Very short
Would have given it 3 stars but it was away too short. Definitely not worth the $2 I paid for it. It's sad because it could have been so much better. Even the ending was kind of like meh.
bluecat017 - Amazing
this is a good good game and i hope everyone plays it, im so glad it has a happy ending.
seal0502 - A compelling experience
I had watched a couple of YouTubers play this game before, which kind of spoiled it. However, I fell absolutely in love with it and wanted to play it for myself. When I did play it, it was so much more immersive. I felt like I was actually going through a real phone and reading the story of a real person. It was amazingly executed, and I love it so much.
I don't usually buy apps, but this was well worth it. It's such a beautiful story. The graphics and music are so pleasant, it's very colorful and calming. I think this game certainly brought attention to a subject that is very important in today's world, and it really told the story well.
lmhatter - Wow
Being able to see a supportive trans community in a game like this is absolutely one of the most amazing things I have seen in a long while. Thank you, for absolutely everything.
northpaul - Not a game
I tried out A Normal Lost Phone and was done with it in 30 minutes. I think it would have worked better as a short story because it really didn't need to be a "game", if you can call it that. Just a little bit added to it could have made it an actual game but as is it is just short text snippets and bad/obvious number puzzles. Just let me interact with some of the characters. Give me a puzzle that isn't figuring out some dumb kid's obvious number passwords. And I really didn't like the ability to not interact by the end of the game since in real life I would have texted the dad or mom. Regardless of circumstances, no parent should have to wonder where their kid disappeared to unless there is domestic violence or something extreme. I won't go into it further since I don't want to spoil anything but I didn't enjoy it overall.
Connor wins - Well written
This is the best interactive story i have played. Check it out
brelovesdogsomgomg - oh my gOD
I love this game. The story is so well written, and it's so heartwarming. I think I started crying at one point. To potential buyers: if you're looking for tons of hard puzzles to solve you're looking in the wrong place. If you're looking for a touching story with lots of pieces (and lots of reading), I think this is worth your money.
Sweetjane610 - I AM SHOOK
The art in this is gorgeous. The music is absolutely lovely. The gameplay is fantastic. The puzzles make a lot of sense and flow together really nicely. The plot is hauntingly beautiful. I've never even written a review before but I HAD to for A Normal Lost Phone. I won't forget it any time soon. <3 Thank you!
Girl powaaaaaa - This game was much too short
Ok game, extremely short, innovative gameplay but the story and length of the game left much to be desired.
Hayden L Isabell - Good game but not worth all that $
Great game it's just not long enough to cost this much money...
Data-sensitive - A terrific snapshot of life, executed perfectly
A great concept and really well executed. The glimpse into these people's lives is appropriately uncomfortable without feeling vouyeristic, and seeing a catalog of a person's life and thoughts and unique sides is exciting. The game cleverly gates its section in an intuitive, satisfying way, and the ending, which I won't spoil, is as satisfying as it is elegant. In an age where we wonder if technology is keeping us from becoming closer, this game makes a strong argument that this is far from the case.
TheFirstGumby - Amazing Game!
I want to spoil it so bad, but I won't. Anyways, this was such a beautifully designed game and I would love to have a sequel! Totally worth the money
Storali - Emotional game
This game has changed my life. It has made me think on a whole new spectrum. The only problem I had was I'll be in the middle of the game and all of the sudden the game would restart. Other then that, the game was amazing. I hope this review helped.
wpinter97 - What?
This game was very upsetting, I mean if you want a real brain teaser and not a game where you look for clues then you'll like it but to me it was very misleading
Unknown~69 - Whole Game got erased
My whole game got erased out of no where and I was looking through the phone dating app for clues but got erased the data
Jboi1 - An unexpected delight
This game was nothing like thought it would be, and much better than I expected. Very intriguing, and a great way to spread understanding of some very controversial issues. Thank you!!
Ana Kusters - Good
It's a great game but it is way too short.
fukuinsta - A Normal Lost Phone
It's a good game overall, but I'm having some issues getting past the security question. The app doesn't seem to respond to my answer, instead the "Please provide the answer to the security questions" warning stays displayed on the screen. I hope there's an upcoming update to get rid of this bug, It's really frustrating not getting my money's worth AND not being able to progress further in this immersive game. I'll rate it a solid 5 stars as soon as my issue's fixed.
Pheebers - Decent, but incredibly short.
I started and completed this game during a single workout session on my treadmill. I know the point was that there's a message, but it was just too easy to solve the few puzzles and the gameplay was frustrating at times, and not because it's a tricky game. You couldn't reply to any email or texts. It restarted on me a few times, no idea why. And the ending is abrupt.
No replay value here; I'm deleting.
Assfhjklllhgffdsdg - Weighed and found wanting
Run of the mill game. The concept was interesting but the story was basically exactly what you expect. Formulaic in general. It's too bad it wasn't longer or more interactive. Maybe if it was $0.99 it'd be worth it.
Lollerbladeeeeeeerrrr - Great concept, meh execution
The concept behind this is fantastic, and I hope that someday someone takes this idea and creates something really special with it. However, there's not really much content here. I beat the game in around 15 minutes, and there's not much (or any) replay value. In addition, the "story" so to speak is shallow and predictable (much like many other games that deal with the same subject matter unfortunately). I was hoping for a deeper mystery, but you'll probably be able to guess what happened correctly in the first few minutes of the game. I'd say wait for this one to become free.
Magical.Trevor - A great concept and game.
This game is great and I loved the story.
Rubah Renard - Thoroughly impressive.
Perfect combination of nonlinear storyline and puzzle solving challenge. The player can explore most parts in any order, yet some information is only useful after other areas are explored, striking the perfect balance between freedom and direction. It really captures the feel of exploring someone's private world and seeing it unfold one interesting step at a time. I played all in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. The game set ambitious sights and then followed through admirably. I wish there were more interactive stories this engaging and accessible. Seriously, well done.
prolitariat - A terrific story and message
Not much replay value if you take your time, but once is definitely more than enough.
tshroom - Unexpected
The idea, the interface, design elements, and soundtrack are really great. The story wasn't high stakes enough for someone who isn't connected with the type of community presented though. I was hoping for a deeper mystery with more devastating consequences.
FoxThatTenno - Great game good story
I really enjoyed this game good games are hard to find these day
majik1213 - I gotta admit ..
Games like these don't roll around often. I don't wanna give away plot, but it is honestly a touching subject I know nothing about. So glad to have opened up my eyes to it.
Elibats1983 - Thank you
Playing this game was like reading an incredibly interesting book, a real page turner, combined with the experience of solving the puzzles of an escape game. Like with a good book you get to the end and you wish it was longer. But I don't think it was too short either. I played this game for hours on end but I think most people would play it over the course of several weeks. But if you're like me you won't be able to put it down and will even look up a couple hints, because honestly there were a few passwords I never would have guessed and it's better to cheat a little than give up on the game.
I have never written an app review before but I just had to thank the developers for creating this game and encourage them to make more. I would pay another $1.99 for a game like this in a heartbeat.
This game could really change some people's lives. Five stars, no regrets.
Pepper9982 - Unique and fascinating!!!
Loved this game! Truly hoping the developers will make another! Fresh, unique, fabulous! It does play out quickly, but that is partly due to the fact that, like any good book, you can't put it down! Anxiously awaiting a sequel game!!!
RamshackleKnight - Needs more
I was hooked during my entire experience with this app, and it ended too abruptly. We find out so much about Sam and then there's suddenly nothing more. I hope the devs can add to this mystery.
ZenaMaexx - Eh
Good graphics and could go somewhere but definitely not long enough for the money.
chetan51 - Powerful
One of the most original, empathetic, and well executed games I've played. I feel like a better person just having played it.
Diamond listener general - This game is sam thing else
A normal lost phone is a great indication of the potential that indie games have. It's scope is tiny: a phone with some apps, a few fictional townships, a small cast of characters, few of which actually pose significance-but it's implications are large. How does a young person go about reinventing them self? It's supposed to be easy in this day and age, but is it really? As we pry deeper into sams personal life, the grand mystery fades quickly, and I wish it didn't. I predict that in this company's next effort, it won't.
sqrl425 - Lovely
I love this concept. And as you dig you almost feel like you're actually invading someone's privacy, and in that aspect kind plays out as a nice social experiment. The story is compelling and touching, but it plays very quick.
I could easily see a sequel being made with a The player finding a different phone. If the developers do, and I hope they do, I would like to see more available options. Dialogue options for texting or emailing back, voicemails, there was a whole music section you couldn't listen to, etc.
CupCode - Heartfelt and sincere
I loved this game. It's an intriguing unfolding of a story of a young person in the middle of vast life changes. Told through interactions and relationships, it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I saw my own experiences so honestly and sympathetically rendered.
Everyone should play this game.
TheBentrick - Incredible.
Wonderful story. Not great English. Seems like it isn't the primary language of the writers. Still very very enjoyable.
NovaSTL - Unique and delightful
As one of the previous directors of the Global Game Jam, I am always on the lookout for games that launch from our event, and this one is something special. A unique style of storytelling, it really drew me in and got me to start caring about the characters. Well done!
CrazyLinks - Good
The game was pretty good. It is similar to Goon Home in that the ending is completely different then what you thought it would be at the beginning of the experience. It kept me playing from the moment I picked it up til the end. It is only about an hour and a half, maybe less if you are a better detective then me, but for the price I feel it was worth it.

kennybroflovski - Not very impressed
I was really excited to play this game as it looked like a fun puzzle solving sort of story game. I thought it would take me a week or two to finish like most of these games. However, I finished it in about half and hour and I was pretty disappointed. The ending was pretty bad too, I won’t spoil it though. Now I know not to expect loads from a game that was only £1.99, but I’d heard lots of good things about it and I thought the concept was cool. So I’m not really sure if I can say it’s not worth the money, but I personally would spend the money on another game :/
ILavGuineaPigs - Really good
Really good game, got confused at the end but most people probably don’t 😂
ox_delirium_xo - Thank you for telling these stories
A touching and relatable game, immediately bought the next game Another Lost Phone.
CH-4224 - Very nice game, great writing
I loved this. Great story, great writing. I enjoyed the game design, it wasn’t too hard but it flowed nicely. There’s quite a lot of reading to be done but it all fits together so well that it was a great experience.
zombossgamer603 - Sick game
Twisted ending though
halcy❤️ - Wowwweewaaa
Wow where to start? It's such a great game full of hate and controversy, but also acceptance and love and just huge emotions!! Get. It
BlackRavenOfPoe - Meh
I bought this game, along with the other one for £5.99. It had good graphics and was entertaining searching through a factious phone trying to find its owner. But it took me an hour to play the first game and 45 minutes to play the other one. As long as you read everything. It’s easy to figure out. Was a good concept but wasn’t worth what I paid for it, as it’s not something I am going to play again once solved
Hux__ - Incredible✨
So this game has been on my steam wish list for a really long time and never got round to actually playing it. Today I found out that it was compatible with mobile so naturally I downloaded it instantly - using a ‘found phone’ whilst actually using my mobile was super immersive.
It was so interesting having such a personal look into Sam’s life - and getting to know little bits about them so at the end, I didn’t really feel ready to let Sam go so soon.
I’d definitely recommend this game - it’s beautiful.
Hejsbdh - Great game :)
I stumbled Accra’s this game while looking through the store and with the good reviews I thought might as well give it a try. It’s great :) I got a bit stuck to start with but I figured out what to do in the end! Took me a few days to work out but if I concentrated more I probably could have solved it quicker! But I will be playing the next one too :) if u like detective type games ur love it.
𝕞𝕠𝕝𝕝𝕪 - amazing !
such a lovely game and i cried at the end :( i love the art style and you get to really bond with the characters.it left me in tears 😂
SallyAdoraBelle - Too short
I really loved this game but it only took an hour to finish 😢
YuhBoyGandalf - Really cool 😎
My girlfriend and I sat with a notebook and worked out the story of Sam for an hour or so together, really great story! Definitely worth the buy 🤙🏻
Cronan - Neat Little Game
Definitely worth the money and the time, and I managed to get (almost) all the way without needing any help. I’ve downloaded the next game right away.
Mcsabas - Decent
I was recently given an iTunes voucher for Christmas, as I’m a gamer I decided to spend it on games. As I was searching I stumbled across this one and I thought why not? As I got into the gameplay i realised how creative of a game this is. Basically it’s a simulation where you look around a virtual phone and search through texts in the order to discover the owner. The game itself is entertaining but the gameplay is rather short. You need to be observant to discover the things. I am happy with the game but I am not as happy with the price. That is the reason for the three stars. I hope you enjoy this review.
Don’t think this is a bad game. It is one of the best I’ve played, just not worth the price. It is likely that I will purchase the sequel
Juigddgitfg - Short, has no ending
The game is bitterly disappointing unfortunately, the story is lazy and the game has no ending. All you do is look through someone's phone, you aren't given any choices in the game at all. Do yourself a favour and save your money I regret not doing so
Lou191 - If you want to be yourself, runaway.
That's the message of this awful, awful "game".
Pack your bags and leave on your birthday with your family worried sick because you assume they will reject you, so you reject them first? Live happily ever after?
Anyone reading this in a similar situation. Give your family three chances. One time to react. One time to process. One time to respond. Then tell them where the hell you run off to.
It's a big deal for them too, they have their own issues to resolve, but they love you.
claragt - Great story, simple play
I loved it. Short and sweet.
This app💕 - Anti-Climax
The game was great at first, mysterious, puzzling and actually interesting, but I completed it extremely quickly and towards the end of the game it seemed that the creators had lost interest in adding more detail or making the story connect together more. The ending was disappointing, I expected a lot more but overall the idea for the game is actually brilliant and if it lasted for a little while longer or if the creators introduced alternative endings depending on how you responded it would be a lot better and worth the price.
Nina3824 - Great theme, but pretty boring
I think the idea of this game is great, and I love that it aims to be fun and tell a story whilst also being informative. It answers questions people may want to ask but don’t know how to, and can be a great resource for kids going through the same thing.
HOWEVER. There’s very little gameplay. A lot of information, but if you’re someone who is familiar with the topic and knows everything that’s said...it gets dull very quickly. Completed it in maybe an hour. I’d give it a higher rating if the app had cost 99p, but £2.99 seems very steep considering the limited gameplay.
Baumchi - Thank you
Thank you for that story... 5 stars had it been a little longer...
Mhari - Meh
There was a lot of pointless stuff to read, not a lot of puzzling, just a different way of telling a story full of stereotypes (my parents are opposed to gay marriage so they'll definitely hate me for being trans, no point in ever talking to them again). Bit disappointing really.
Nugget s1m0n - Great game, lovely story
I enjoyed playing through this and finding out what had happened to the person who's phone I found. Very interesting and touching. Hope you make more games like this!
Skinny1989 - Good Concept; Poor Message
**Spoilers** **Spoilers** **Spoilers**
TLDR: A good game mechanic let down by a weak plot design to advance a dubious moral message. What a shame. ⭐️⭐️
Anyone one who has played Orwell on Steam will be familiar with the mechanics of this game - sift data, find clues, solve the mystery. Whist ANLP has an original take of this style, deploys it reasonably well, all whilst tackling an extremely sensitive and difficult topic is to be commended.
However, it sadly does so with a moral message (yes that is what it is) is dubious to say the least. Once the struggles of the phones owner begin to emerge the plot quick degrads in favour of preaching to the player. The main points of the games sermon can summarised as follows:
1. Always be critical of the views, opinions, and feelings of others but never your own.
2. Anyone who won't except you as your are is probably a bigot.
3. Find a community of people who will unquestionably accept you.
4. It is OK to lie to and deceive everyone else.
5. If necessary, run away I'm secret to escape those who do not unquestionably accept you for who you are. Those who truly support you will approve of this decision.
The sad reality of this message is that very little depends on the struggles of the main character. In fact Sam is merely a foil through which the message is advanced.
Sam could have been struggling with a growing desire of religious belief (eg. Islam) or political affiliation, they could have even been thinking about joining a cult, and the message of this game would remain the same. Ultimately, Sam (a likeable character) sadly becomes an irrelevance.
What a shame. Two stars for original concept and bravery.
Disnerd-princess - Incredible, but should have a trigger warning
The game format was awesome, the music pretty cool and the storyline was so thought provoking. I played the game in one sitting and am currently downloading the sequel game. Highly recommend, but make sure you have your tissues ready. (In a good way!) Only thing I can say bad - should have a trigger warning.
Kp45380 - Too short
I was really getting into it and then it ended. Rubbish
Pinksteady - Enjoyable and enlightening
A rare glimpse into the mind of a teenager going through a pivotal identity crisis. Nicely told story, but don't expect a long puzzle game - this is very short - probably about an hour. I enjoyed it 👍🏻 and always like to support the development of more emotionally-connected games.
Peanut_buttered - Beautiful story, wonderfully told
This is lovely and the puzzles are clever and well integrated. A really unique experience.
Cookie_andCream - This game is great.
This game is incredible. It seems very simple at first but instantly draws you in. Once your in the story get better and better (but harder hitting). This game is not a happy go lucky game, in fact it made me cry. But that goes to show how great it is. The characters are believable, the story is incredibly powerful and it's method of delivery is so unique.
I cannot recommend it enough.
This game is great for anyone.
Boodles4 - Great but short
It was a really good game and explored things that affect people everyday. A great mix of emotion and puzzles. But one story was very short bad easy to complete, I feel there should be more once you complete the game, for instance move to another story after. At £2.99 it's really expensive for what it is, I feel a bit conned especially as my friend got it for 10p on google play.
Davecalee - Meh...
It was an original way to tell a short story, but I was expecting a puzzle filled game that would take me several days to complete. This was ok, a little overpriced, way too short and far too easy to get through.
Bryoz - Fantastic!
I really loved piecing together Sam's story. Great work. Thank you!
Aldomck1979 - Great idea for a game. Too short for the money
Was good but for an hour of game play it's far too expensive
Tim1684 - Well made, rubbish story
Really really well made game. Story sadly is a bit rubbish and not particularly original. If you've played other story games you will probably get half way and release what happened to the phones owner.
Formiker - Innovative
Smart and innovative, the most interesting non-linear interactive narrative I've played since Her Story.
Can'tchoseanickname - IGN Recommends
Here because of Gav Murphy, let's hope it's worth the 3 quid.
Mark James Taylor - Fabulous engaging story
Love this game. Spent an evening totally wrapped up in the story. Really clever idea.
Saikoujikan - I want to see more "pretend phone" games
This game is an exercise in narrative design. As in it reveals its story slowly but deliberately. The entire game is a phone, and through its messages, photos, and music, you learn a little bit about the life of the one who owned it, and the people they spoke to.
It's part puzzle, part adventure game. The puzzles are almost entirely password for further content, and the clues to guessing are buried within the dialogue.
It might be more accurate to say this is more like an installation piece than a game.
If you like immersive story telling, and like the voyeuristic conceit of learning about a person by going through their phone, you'll have a pleasant couple of hours.
Also, I was really surprised by how pretty she was. The art grows on you after a while.
Twistferret - Found phone game, great story. Really enjoyable
