- Decently Fun with an intriguing "story"

So the puzzles are not too difficult and require only a bit of brain power. I still enjoyed the gameplay, especially when you could change gravity. The wording however in the background had quite the psychological effect. Gave kinda a weird look on life and the "story" is more of the highlight of this game. So overall I rate it 4 out of 5, but the fact that I got this off AppsGoneFree MAY have influenced my opinion a bit. Note: do not worry about app reviews saying the game has an in-app purchase of 9999. These people just didn't realize this is an in game element. By that I mean you can jump on it and it is part of the level.

- I like it!

After playing the game for a little while I get a pop up and it has: PURCHASE Do you want to pay $ 9,999 to unlock this level? The options are YES and YES. This is just another level, move around the pop up and continue with the game.

- Short but entertaining.

This game, although it has very simple mechanics, still manages to challenge the player especially if you wish to find the secret "orange" and prologue level and beat them. After the prologue level the creator begins a commentary on the creation of the game as you replay it from the beginning and he reveals some other secrets that you may not have already found. Finding all the hidden elements in the game definitely add to the value of your experience and I would encourage that do attempt to find them.

- Best Mobile Game I’ve Seen.

I’m not exaggerating. As far as entertainment goes, this is the best game I’ve played. It’s a wonderful blend of puzzle and platformer, with a side of innovation in game design, and a sprinkling of meta. The simplistic presentation is really appealing as well. Despite a short playtime, the orange levels were extremely challenging for me, and the “prequel” was a nice, deep intellectual challenge. As an aspiring game developer, the “texts” you get from the developer were a great insight on the process, and I was absolutely astonished to find out the entire process was 6 weeks.

- Terrible Ending

The game has a nice concept, was challenging enough at times, but short-lived and super frustrating at the end. The entire game was kinda easy, but then at the orange level everything was super difficult and near impossible to finish. I’m not even sure some of the levels there were actually possible to finish. So I gave up after 100+ tries and looked up a walkthrough to see what would happen at the end. Guess what? It’s an empty orange room with absolutely nothing in sight. So don’t waste your time trying to beat the orange level, you’ll hardly be rewarded. The insane difficulty on the last level just seemed to be an excuse to lengthen the already super short game.

- Very thoughtful and deep

This game appears at first to be simple and straightforward, but don't stop--keep going. There are so many hidden elements and surprises that will shock you completely. It is not a short game and the levels will be hard to perfect when you get that far. In addition, it points out the common problems of games today and defines what it means to be a good game. It probably is the most meaningful game I've seen.

- Wow

I honestly lobed every second of this game. The music, the art, the design, the idea, the twists, the tricks, it is all perfect. I would love to see more content like this game. *spoiler ahead* Though, (unless I haven't found it) an in game map of the orange levels would be really cool. The ending was definitely good and I love what was done for the prologue ending. Hope to see more games from you that are as intriguing as this, or even further extending this one.

- It's OK

I don't know how this game is getting such great reviews. I wouldn't recommend paying for it. If it was free then yea sure but for $2 eh. It's way too short. They say 80+ like its this huge game... They're incredibly short "levels". Then you get to this end place where it gets so difficult that it's just more or less annoying. Everything b4 this point it's fairly easy. I just beat the entire game, not counting that last part that I'm stopping for now, in one sitting. It'd be different if these "levels" were large and well thought out but they're really not...

- For Every Gamer

This game is stunning. I love how it gets you thinking about games and what we expect games to do. The gameplay isn't difficult, but it is unique. I can wait to show this game to my friends who are gamers, but I would recommend this game to anyone. Seriously, this is the kind of game that makes you question the other games you've given 5 stars. Well done, devs.

- Delightfully dark

I love games that are just different. This is one of those games. Like Limbo before it the innovative game play and style is a breath of fresh air. The feel is delightful dark and creepy. The soundtrack is hypnotic and blends perfectly with the overall character of the game. If you're looking for a game that you can pick up, jump right in and find yourself intrigued, this is it.

- Good but not a lot of information

As much as I enjoy this game and stuff like the orange levels prologue and all that other stuff. No one gives us a lot of information about where we are or why the square is here. But I know he only had 6 weeks to make this game. It’s a really good game though. So thank you to the people who made this game.

- Awesome game but did I beat it?

This is a very cool game very cool idea being able to use your own corpse as a platform. But did I beat it? I got to the section named death where he teaches you you can flip the device over to be able to work on the ceiling. But then it just went back to the beginning. What?

- Fun simple little game

Don't look at it for more then it is. Its just a simple little game. Don't stress out over it. Get through the game and find the hidden features. One of them is a very nice commentary from the author about the game. Wish more would so something like that (thanks for doing it!)

- Amazing

This game is absolutely amazing. I won't spoil it, but the twist at the end literally gave me goose bumps. This game had me thinking so hard the entire time. I do admit. The game is not easy. I actually yelled into a pillow at one point. But the game kept me coming back. Love it. Will recommend to all my friends.

- Oh My God

Whoever rated this one star definitely has no idea what the concept of this amazing game is. Stollenmayer, you're brilliant! One of the very few apps I spent my money on. This is like the only app I've used that doesn't insist on me rating the app. I appreciate that so much.

- Great game

A couldn't-put-it-down game. I enjoyed the twist after finishing it and it made replay value high. It took me by surprise too when I answered the number puzzle and briefly wondered why they were texting me. Thank you for the excellent game!

- Brilliant Design

Gameplay: 10-15 minutes. Review: The game wins just because of its simple design. I loved how the narration was done. Really innovative indeed. It doesn't bring anything new to the table but instead serves itself in a totally unique fashion, which I loved. I just found something about orange levels. This means that there are more levels out there?? I have to play the game again. Make more soon devs! For the guy complaining they make you purchase a level for 9,999$, Don't play games.

- Definitely the most underwhelming game kamibox

I’ve have bought all of your games but this is the one that is definitely the shortest and the most meaningless seeming

- Perfect combination of art and game

The game is simplistic in its controls and gameplay, but the ominous, distorted voiceover makes the storyline interesting and engaging. I'll play through the game hours at a time without getting bored or tired.

- Best game I’ve ever played

Amazing game like I’ve never written one of thes before but I loved the game sm that I took time outta my day to write one... one of the best games I’ve ever played if not the best... would recommend playing with headphones tho

- Love

I loved this game. Only game I played all the way through. It's hard but not so hard that you have to look up how to do it every five seconds. I only had to look up a cheat once.


So good. Then you think you beat it and it gets better. Then you realize there's a THIRD phase, if you're up for it. Seriously, a great game! Not sure about the final ending but I'm also not sure what I expected in a game like this. 😆

- Brilliant!

Everything about this game is right! The music, the atmosphere, the lighting, the descriptions, the subtlety, and of course the gameplay. All of it is exceptional. As it drives toward the conclusion, something big is anticipated, and it does not fail to deliver!

- A game with little innovation

I was captivated by its name per se. "Sometimes you die" sounds philosophically intriguing, yet the actual game playing is nowhere near as fun. While the idea that using dead bodies to achieve a goal is applaudable, the control and the flow are imitation of old-school puzzle games, not least the caption is particularly cliché.

- Outstanding among all of the awful games played ever.

Simply a silly game made with a little imitative inspiration. The producer might think himself smarter than our players and built some disappointing stages just trying to annoy you and hurt your eye sight(Caution: this game may induce serious epilepsy without any hint! ). I ask appstore stuffs undercarriage this stupid thing as soon as possible for the sake of our patients and patience.

- I enjoyed it

I don't play many games on my iPhone but I saw this one and the name intrigued me. It isn't difficult but I'm still finding hidden levels.

- I Love It.

Man, this game is just amazing. The combination of frustrating and fun is amazing. And I especially love the “Orange Levels”. I can say that I have beaten the orange levels, and the ending is a bit anti-climatic. Either way, I love the game.

- Best Platformer ever

Really really good game! I can play this without getting bored forever. I wish the Developer would make more games like this: and yes, I’d pay for more! Thanks Philipp!

- Brilliant!

Loved it! Played through several times to find everything.

- So unique and everything is amazing

The creativity and everything is just amazing. Such a well done game this deserves some sort of award

- A Fun Little Romp with Death

Not sure if I won or not, but it was entertaining regardless. Found the pause button, so I'm guessing that was the end :)

- Beautifully written.

Amazing! I loved it. Is it finished once you get a note from the developer calling you a little cheater?

- Definetly deserves 5 Star...

It feels like you are having a satisfaction that a few game can give 😁 Music is also a plus

- Wow

It's an insane game, really deep and dark, and very few bugs. Recomend 10/10 would and did play again 👌

- Honestly me favorite game

This game is amazing, I suggest everyone play it. I think the only thing it's missing is a way to reset the game.

- Wow

Simply amazing and well thought out. I haven't gone back for the extra levels but I plan on doing so. This game is amazing l.

- Really good

This game was amazing and has taught me a lot about game design and the ending is great. Best platformer on iOS I'd have to say (better than Mario run)

- Very good

This is a good game, and is worth getting to the end. It is dark and fun kind of like Limbo and A Dark Room. Highly recommend.

- Innovative and clever!

I usually do not play these types of games but I am glad I played this one. Very cool.

- Awesome Gameplay

I never rate things but this game was so worth it! Well done!

- Scam, don't download.

Playing the game. Was fun until a purchase window popped up that stated "Do you want to pay $9,999 to unlock this level?" The options were yes or yes. So I deleted this game. They are targeting kids to purchase who are not reading the pop ups. I took a screen shot of it.

- Good concept ruined by poor controls

The game uses the limitations of the controls to make levels difficult. That's a very bad idea in game design.

- Overrides device sound

I don't care about your personal music. Fix this so that I can listen to whatever I want.

- Highly immersive

This is my new favorite game!!! I absolutely love it!!!! Can't stop playing!!!!!

- Dark twist

Killer game, then at the end, you get a twist, highly recommended.

- Waste of money

Controls don't work properly. Game glitched about 10 seconds in. Restarted and it did the same. Didn't even bother trying a third time. Deleted immediately. Waste of time and money.

- More like this

Theme of psychology of gaming is raised in this game. Which there were more like this game.

- The best mobile game I have ever played

The title speaks for itself

- Love This Game!

This is a very challenging and thought provoking game. Absolutely worth the purchase!

- Amazing

One of the best games in the App Store. I can't spoil it. You'll love it.

- Incredible

Has a very interesting message to it regarding video games in general. Perfect, smooth gameplay. Interesting twist at the end of the game. Note: when the game asks you to "pay $9,999" and there's no choice, it doesn't actually make you pay. Just tap yes and continue with the game, you'll know what I mean when you play it.

- Very cool

This is an incredibly addictive game. A game that makes you think but I particularly like how you can reset each level as you go. I also really dig the groovy music in the background. The aesthetic design of the game is also effective and compliments the actual game itself. Well done

- A 20 minute Wonder

Absolutely brilliant game with well made, solid mechanics. Got way more than I paid for on this one, which being free is a crime! Play with an open mind, and you won't be disappointed.

- Download it now.

Not even kidding. Get it before somebody forces the developer to charge for it, because they feel bad he is giving such a great game out for free. Great, 10/10 would die again.

- "You little cheater"

A game that challenges your skills to jump as a box and use your death as a bridge to the next area. And to the developer, i didnt cheat because i stacked boxes together :)

- Fun strategy game.

I think it is an interesting game, it makes you think about strategy and goals. Nice that you can die numerous times without penalties. And you don't pay the $9999 lol.

- New interpretation!

Good game. Make sure you play with the sound on! If you pay the $9,999 you unlock the difficult hidden levels.

- Great

Has anyone completed it? My record deaths is four. Also worth getting! By the way to complete the game you need to not die!

- Unique and interesting game

You don't have to pay $9,999. You just say yes and complete the level using the pop-up as a platform.

- Great game

Probably the best game I've seen for ios. Really unique and creative. I would recommend it to everyone.

- Best game ever

Defiantly recommend this game with out a doubt this is the best game I have ever played, with so much to explore and so many secrets to the game.

- Awesome

A meta game, a game about playing game. It challenges you, tricks you, and inspires you.


the game asks for you to pay $9,999 at the seventh level to get 8. This is not a good thing for people who want to play the hole game. When told to pay it gives no answer for rejecting it with two yes answers. The only way to not pay is to exit whole app

- Excellent!

This is such an excellent little game! A little creepy but in a good way. It provokes the player to think before acting, especially after you've played it through once. The hidden levels were also very good, and well hidden XD The simple art style helps to keep the focus on the point (if there is one 0.0) and the music is going to be stuck on my brain for a while. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight, not that it was scary it was just creepy >.< I don't normally give 5 stars to things because there's always room for improvement but in this case I can't see any room for improvement, the games creator/s should be very proud ^.^

- Fantastic Game

This is not your average game… The controls are great, you get a good sense of realistic physics as you guide the little cube around the levels. It’s also an interesting concept to die and leave blocks in the level as you advance. But this game turned out nothing like what I expected! Without giving too much away, I’ll just say that there are a couple of big twists, and I haven’t finished it yet… who knows what other surprises I’ll face. Definitely recommended for anyone who’s even a bit curious. It’s worth it just to see what will happen as the game progresses.

- Clever, thought provoking

This game is both challenging and easy. Enjoy the mind meddling banter as you make your way through a series of levels that will make you question everything you love about gaming. Genius. Must play for any gamer.

- Flawless

Sometimes you die takes an ingenious mechanic and matches it with an inventive, meta narrative. Controls are tight and the whole things revels in subverting your expectations. The end result is like a cross between VVVVVV, Kyle Pulver's depict1 and a René Magritte painting. Highly recommended!

- Wow!

You have surprised me, the new chapter really pushed me and my friend to get the hidden levels finished and find it. Finished it, but dude, that was epic!! Can't wait for more :)

- Great game

Well worth playing through, even if you think it's too hard!

- Is Good

This game is amazing

- This isn't a fun game...

- Anti climactic

After spending hours and hours on this game, I finally beat it. But... there’s nothing at the end? The game itself is very fun but it was very anticlimactic.

- I just beat it (for the first time, at least).

Now THAT was a good game. If you like games that make you think, this is definitely one you should get... The soundtrack was interesting (in a good way), and the gameplay is simple, the only reason I rate 4/5 is because it doesn't have much replay value other than the twist at the end and the apparently "hidden stages" I have yet to find. Other than that though, this was well worth the money I spent on it!

- Any refunds?

I installed the game today and i don’t very like it i would like to know if i could get refundded?

- Great game

This is a great game, it is definitely worth my money

- What is a game, fundamentally?

Well, play that game and find out.

- Amazing

After reading the texts it really drove me to finish the orange levels. Great Game 10/10

- Loved it

This is one of the only games that I loved on a phone

- Doesn't Quite Work On My Device

I'm using an iPhone 3G or 3GS, model number MC131C/A, with iOS version 6.1.6. This iPhone has a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The game runs but does not scale the screen properly to the small resolution; while the "?", "<", and ">" buttons do properly adjust to fit the screen, the in-game graphics do not. Significant portions of each screen of the game are cut off around the edges. For instance, there is an early screen that introduces an elevator off to the right; the entire elevator is off-screen and I know about it only because I watched a few minutes of a playthrough. I'll come back to adjust my review if I play it on a newer device or if the game is updated for compatibility with my old device.

- Awesome

I think I'm the first to beat this game

- Clever and frustrating

Basic, yet captivating graphics and slightly erie background music make for a soul haunting game.

- Simple but effective

A must have game !!

- Clever

I like the philosophical comments and music.

- Wow

This isn't a game. This is friggin art.. You basically play your way from room to room, your only motivation to hear the next line of dialogue. It's like playing a poem. A dark poem. Where you use your own corpses to complete the levels. The soundtrack is amazing as well. Only one track but it loops and it's so good that it doesn't matter. Atmosphere-10/10 Controls-9/10 Replay value-9.5/10 The game loops after you "beat" it, but chances are you haven't memorized every level so playing it again around 30 min later is just as rewarding.

- Nice little game

Fun twist on a simple platformer gameplay, though it gets a bit repetitive towards the end. Loved the visual style and the music.

- Faith in mobile gaming RESTORED

Stumbled here after playing 'Okay?'. Enjoyed this one on so many levels. Awesome credits. Hair-pulling orange. Redefined the 4th wall (and destroyed it). Loved it all. Time to flip some pancakes.

- Amazing!!!!

Great game. Top of my list this year. Worth than 1$. Amazing.

- Keep looking..

For those who find the game boring and short, you aren't paying enough attention. Listen to what the voice is saying, look for clues to find the third stage of the game. Brilliant.

- It was a good game

But not worth two bucks.

- Amazing game!

This should have game centre.

- Huge waste of $$

This game is extremely boring.

- Amazing game

I love this game. I've played it at least 50 times. $1 I've spent

- The new update

I love it just completed the code and it was really cool. Very happy I bought this game!

- Sometimes you die

I haven't played it yet

- Cool game with a silly bug

This is a good game but there is a bug where I jump too high, stick to the ceiling and can't get down unless I reboot my device. I'm at a stage that requires a lot of jumping and I keep getting stuck, it's kind of annoying...

- Great game

Look for the bonus orange rooms on your 2nd time around


Wasted my money on this app to find out it is not even a game😡

- TheGreatCanadianGamer

Great game until you have and ad that says "would you like to buy the next level for 999.99" and the choices are yes and yes

- Nice

The concept of this game is excellent dying to continue makes this a nice puzzle/platformer

- Wonderful


- Holy poop

I personally hate spending money on the App Store. But this game is worth my money. I wish there was more to it however. Great game tho! ❤️

- A little masterpiece

The strange voice explains you things you already know until you don't. Then you discover what you should have known since the beginning: piece of art always hide a secret, you just have to listen. Worth $2 just for that surprise alone!

- Pfft

30 second midi loop, beat in 15min, play again with ability to flip phone to finish levels, makes it too easy to beat. You can call it art if you'd like. Someone flipped a urinal upside down once as a joke and its considered an important piece of art

- What is a game?

This game is self aware about what it means to be a platformer. It brings with it a dialogue about its own existence within a rich history of games like it. You speak back to it by playing it. It's smart witty and fun. Unless you're a complete tool like some of the reviewers here you should definitely get that giddy wow factor. Spoiler alert. Beyond its self aware narrative it also takes a 'braid-esque' like approach to game mechanics (use an element always present and usually taken for granted and make it the core theme of the game), allowing you to change the flow of the game as you play by incorporating yourself (your character's corpses) into the level design. In that regard it reminded me a bit of Autocannibalism, but much more meta.

- Awesome

Vraiment bon jeu jadore que le createur s'interprète comme maitre du jeux et jadore les phrase un peu philosophique

- The meaning of life

This app changed my life. I've lived every moment up to this point for the chance to experience this creation. Sometimes you die? No. Finally, I've lived.

- This is beautiful experience

This app is deeply philosophical and really awesome

- Marvelous.

Its a pity that some purchasers are incapable of finding the hidden levels and all the goodness of this game. There are no in app purchases, the game simply attempts to break the fourth wall. Please do not leave a review when clearly you have not played the game in and out.


Let me make it clear! The game is actually long a hard! If you REALLY beat the game, you will be a pause button!

- Video Games CAN be Art

Roger Ebert once famously said that video games are not art (to much resentment and anger from the video game community.) Maybe that was true at the time and maybe it wasn't, but THIS GAME didn' exist back then, and now it does. This game is literally a work of art. It's a poem and an interactive experience and a song seamlessly fused. It's a commentary on the state of gaming today. Buy this game. It may be short, but the experience is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Philipp Stollenmayer deserves to be recognized for this achievement. He deserves to be rewarded with money. Well done, sir. Well done indeed.

- 1.99$ come on

Doesnt worth the price, finished the game in 15 min and the next levels are the same but you have to flip the iphone each time to pass them, waste of time....delete

- Good but not awesome

This is an ok game. It's really short for the price, took me about half an hour to complete ut twice! It's visually polished, but lack any wow factor, just an average game to me.

- Amazing little piece

reminds me of anti chamber and other mind bending games worth the price

- Amazing game 09864

The game was very unique and addicting well worth the purchase 5/5 The game built an amazing dark ambiance and atmosphere. As someone previously said the great soundtrack and game loops and is easily playable again and again.

- Creativity at its max!

Mindblowingly good. Wish it was longer tho! But the end was awesome! LOVE IT

- Beauty

I was taken by surprise with this "game" to be honest. I was expecting a silly fun little gimmick but what I got was an actually intriguing narrative. It definitely hedges on pretentious, but trust me, when you beat the game and start again with what you know, it adds another level of challenge to the app. Sometimes you die. Sometimes you don't. Highly recommended.

- To die

Awesome game 5 stars

- Scam

When you get to a certain level it is going to ask you to purchase the level for $10,000. It gives you two options, yes or yes. Fraud.

- Amaxing

The game is interesting + fun. I have no problem with controlling it. But for the last lvl i dont quiet get it?

- Like it

I thought it will be boring but I was wrong

- Don’t waste your time

It is pretty short and there is no way to turn off the volume. I want to listen to music while I play but you can’t

- Amusingggggg!

Especially PURCHASE! I don't play this game cause: 1. The game soon began to repeat; 2. Flip. But it's still new and original. Just give the developers a big hug! ;) Thank you for your good ideas!!!

- Cool Game

This is one of the best games i have played

- Kudos for the concept

If you have played a lot of video games over the years, this is nice little twist - a meta commentary on why you're playing and what constitutes a game. As others say, it is very short, though you will want to play through a second time (even faster!) after you see the end. A couple of things: * Yes, there is a screen asking you to pay $9,999 for a level - but it is a joke, not a real IAP. A clever joke, actually, that subverts the trope of IAPs. * After you "finish" the gray screens, you can get to a "hidden" orange area. But this is not the start of a larger area or game; it's just a small additional area where you can find one additional game feature. All in all, a clever diversion for an evening, cheaper entertainment by the minute than a movie, but understand going in that it is very short, maybe a bit over an hour total. Interesting concept but that's it. Making it into a longer straight platformer would have defeated the author's purpose. Is it a game? You make the call.

- 3 step program

Step 1: Die Step 2: ??? Step 3: Profit

- Boring

The game is short and you get put back a level if you miss jumps very irritating.

- It has a great message but ultimately fails as a game

I really didn't know what I was expecting when I first started this game. I thought it would just be, to progress through the levels, you needed to die and try again. But it quickly made me question if it really was a game. And boy I did. The first section is a simple tutorial, teaching you the game mechanics and how when you die, you become a platform for your future play. Then it becomes a deep thought story, making you question what a game really is. An ingenious idea, it really has a deep message. But as I started getting through, I realized there wasn't much "game". It was just follow the game through and deal with the annoying parts. When you finally do finish it, you're given this new mechanic, tilt your phone to alter gravity. It's a great addition, really makes the game much more interesting. However, after you go through it again, you end up in a new section that really seems more like a game, it's a whole area which requires you to skillfully die in order to advance. Great idea? Yes. Badly implemented. The level itself is badly designed, you'll spend most of your time getting back to where you were because you fell and you travelled to another section. The tilt mechanic just doesn't work well. It takes absurdly long to activate and switch the gravity. So you end up dying where the exit is, making you restart, or teleporting to another section, trapping you in an endless loop of death whilst you're helpless watching. For $2 it's simply disappointing. Deep story, yes. Badly designed levels, yes. Badly implemented 'interesting' mechanic, yes. Great ideas, you just failed to make a game.

- too minimalistic

ok, i get left, right, jump with a bunch of tough to read words on this levels background. and it keeps happening. move on, next level with hard to read words. so it's super easy with no indication of score or progression, or what i'm supposed to do, so why should i keep playing. deleted.

- too hard.

I didn't enjoy my time playing it.

- Smart game!

Great game, excellent music!! It deserves a five star!!

- Phenomenal!

Simply amazing! A true pleasure to play.

- Meh

It's an ok diversion but I finished it in about 15 minutes.

- Awesome game

Great game; simple, yet complex.

- Can't play it

The game is too zoomed in my screen

- Scam for $9999 inside app purchase

watch for scam pop for in app purchase

- this game is a virtual existential crisis

...and i love it.

- Meh

Artificial lengtheners and artificial difficulty.

- What you need to know:

You use left and right and jump to get through very simple levels. Additionally when you die your corpse can be used as a platform. Once you've completed all of the levels, which takes ten minutes or so, you are given the number of times you died and you are back at the start but have the ability to turn your device upside down, granting the ability to run through the levels without dying at all. Then at the end you'll find a small secret zone with one challenging room. That's all. The charm of the "game" is the background text that questions "what if I made this level unbeatable" as it hides the exit behind false spikes. Or "what if I changed the rules" as it changes the controls. There is a major comparing about the "in game purchase", but if you look the game has no in game purchases. The text asks "what if I made you pay for every level" and you must actually jump on the outside of the pop up purchase box to complete the level. For thirty minutes of a unique experience I would have been satisfied for 99 cents. And a photosensitive seizure warning. It's quite intense.

- I NEVER write reviews...

As my title implies, I never, and I mean NEVER write reviews for apps especially games. This game, however, deserves not only a review but a standing ovation. In a market flooded with "better" graphics, "realistic" gameplay, and overly scripted gameplay, this one shines in the fact that it takes preconceived notions and turns them on their heads. Because sometimes, you die. In this game, it's sometimes necessary to die. The graphics are simplistic and the music is borderline creepy only help to establish even more as the "anti-game". But, that's not even the best part. When you finish all 70 levels and get to the last one, your mind will be completely and utterly blown. You will look at the game in an entirely new light. In a way, you become "enlightened" and want to start playing again to see if you can finish WITHOUT dying (you have to finish the first go round to understand). Overall, this is a must buy. This game developer is a freaking genius!!!!!

- Incredible and Thought Provoking

This game is an amazing example of what games could and should be like. Fun to play, but with a lot of extra meaning in everything. You can tell from the start that someone has taken a lot of time to develop the concepts of the game and expound them in as many facets as possible. This is a truly creative piece of art, and talking about the actual gameplay and mechanics would ruin the experience. Please take my word when I say the people who made this are very deserving of the two dollars you need to cough up in order to play. I have beaten it already, but to those of you who know, that is only the start. To the Devs: Thank you for this work of art. It is incredibly refreshing to see other people take the art of gaming seriously and really step out of the box to make a an experience that challenges the status quo.

- What the new update contains:

First you need to make sure you complete all the Orange levels. This will get you the pause button. Now go to the beginning of the game and work your way to the prologue chapter. There will be a red arrow instead of a white one. Complete the prologue chapter and then you'll get a notification. DO NOT PULL DOWN! Instead read it and just flick it up. Now press the pause button and go back to level one. You'll get another notification. Keep playing normally and you'll get a notification for every level. Again. Do not pull down. Only flick up. This is the new wow factor. They did mention a new secret level I think in the Orange levels. I couldn't find it yet. Also did you know that if you jump, pause the screen in the middle of the jump and then jump again it becomes a double jump?

- One of the best game for iPhone

This game is amazing. It's not the simple and intuitive gameplay that make the game shine, it's the journey you go through inside the game world. You, as a block, go and discover the strange world step by step, sometimes you die, sometimes you got stuck, sometimes you make mistakes, and sometimes you learn something beyond the scope of the game itself. And who says the game is too easy probably never reached the hidden level. Just keep playing and you'll get there. In conclusion, the game deserve a 5 stars from me. Best game for the iPhone in the last few months. If you know about and enjoy playing games like Super Meat Boy, vvvvvv, Portal then you have to get this game :)

- Interesting and thought-provoking

This game is amazing. The puzzles seem simple, but some are quite difficult. Even ones that seem impossible have a solution (hint hint). The game makes you think about what you expect from an app, pointing out the problems with IAPs and wait timers. People with seizures may not want to buy this though; when he says "I could make your eyes hurt", he isn't kidding. The best part of this game is that there are 4 levels of completion: making it through to the end, beating the secret levels, beating the "impossible" level, and finally, managing to get through with no deaths. Sometimes you die. But sometimes you don't.

- Great Game

Funny how people like pointing out what they feel are stolen ideas. Ideas get improved and changed not stolen at least not in this game. It is a puzzle genre game as was limbo. I encourage people not to lose perspective between what is inspiration from previous works and what is stolen. If you do lose perspective then this game will be unnecessarily less fun for you. The text and voice overs I thought were clever way for game instructions to be given. The game at times I thought sought to be deep when it partly did not need to try. However, game mechanics were cool and controls felt good. I enjoyed it, please make more of this.

- Interesting concept

As the game itself asks you, how low can the level of fun drop before it's no longer a game? I submit that it's somewhere slightly above this app. The controls are calibrated for an iPhone and don't translate over well on an iPad, I found. The game is clever but seems way too aware of this fact. I liked the gimmick but ultimately it just was only a medium amount of fun to play. As for the idiots who one-starred it because of the $9,999 popup, the game DOESN'T ACTUALLY CHARGE YOU TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS you nitwits. The use of the popup itself was actually inspired and possibly the most clever trick of the whole game. In short, not perfect, but I don't regret the purchase.

- More than a game - it's a game-changer!

Remember when you finished watching Sixth Sense and then INSTANTLY wanted to watch it again knowing what you know now? "Sometimes You Die" is one of the most brilliant games I've ever played. It examines and questions everything about what games are while simultaneously proving to be a fun, challenging, absorbing game itself. In some ways, this game is like a great performance by a magician. You'll be enchanted the first time you play it. Then the magician reveals his secret..."the trick". You'll equally and completely differently enjoy your second play through and yet long for the past because ignorance is bliss...isn't it? The game only takes about a half hour to "finish" although you MUST play it through at least twice to experience the game to its fullest potential. And take my NOT stop playing until you've discovered the pause button ;-) Download this game NOW. This is one for the history books.

- Not just a game. Not just a developer.

Sometimes you die. Sometimes you win. My mind is blown by the absolution of this app. I was skeptical from the app's name to the fake in-app purchase. Once the gravity of the game kicked in, I can't get enough. $1.99 isn't enough money for the complexity that this app brings. The simple robotic nature has it's own personality, and brings with it humanity and humility. The replay value is extraordinary, if you go along with the app's assumption of giving you a number and an image. I found only two levels that require one death. Can we get a gamecenter ranking?

- Wow... Just wow!!! 😱😆

I absolutely love this game! It's so smart and just addictive!!! So worth the money! The only thing is I with there were more levels... The way it ended left my mind blown!! Before I tell you how it ends just In case... When you reach level 7 it says buy for 9999$ and all you have to answer is yes and yes, it's ok it's still just part of the game. The the way it ends is "what if I could make this level impossible?" And I was sitting there trying to beat it until I relished this amazing game was over.... But I would buy it agin if I could 😭

- Amazing in it's simplicity

Sometimes You Die is a treasure to play and worth it's $1.99 price tag. The concept is great and it is a nice easy game to finish... Until of course... You finish it, and then things get tricky... The hidden level is something nightmares are made of, but figuring it out brought true happiness. I thought it wouldn't have much replay value, but I will definitely be going for a zero death play through, and prove that sometimes... You don't have to die

- Excellent and challenging

Your first play through of this game will be a more traditional physics-type game. The second is easier in some ways but still fun; it makes you think a little differently. As for the third part... The background changes and the game becomes very difficult. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you missed something. Anyway, I'm stuck at this seemingly unbeatable "level". Regardless, this is a good game and worth the purchase.

- Amazing game, but where's the new chapter?

This is a charming game with a unique style and atmosphere that completely fits with the theme. This game allows you to question the reality of the term game, and challenges us to realize the limitations we set on our expectations for games in general, and opens our eyes to the reality that there can be no expectations for a game, because there is reality for a game, no rules. A definite recommendation to play. Just one problem -- where's the new chapter?

- Genius

At first the game did not make sense. I thought, wow waste of 2$ then I got hooked. I did not relies what the game itself meant at first. If you don't have a iTunes gift card get this anyways it explains so much. And the ending I do not understand how I did not even think to try that it the first place. Do not quit the game till you get the pause button. I don't write reviews often but this game is not a game, it's a price of art, a mind blowing experience.

- A surprising success.

This is, by far, one of the best purchases I have made in a very long time. Not only does this game hit every aspect of a successful game, it goes even deeper. This game takes a game that seems completely ordinary on surface level and then adds a layer of psychology and wit. I don't want to give anything away. All I can say is that you should buy this game, play it all the way through, and play it again.

- Interesting...

While it's short, it was interesting and does have replay value. It even drops you right into it. That being said, I felt as though the game was trying to be "deep" with how it presents itself, but it ends up being annoying more than anything. Also, once you have the "twist" down it makes it less fun. I wanted to give it 4 stars, but I'm very torn by the subtext of the game. At $1.99 most folks would probably scoff at it. As someone who understands what goes into this though, I think it's priced where it should be.

- Different is good

Ok yes it is a little short and 99 cents would have been a better price but with that being said I am completely happy with my purchase as playing this interesting and unique game kept me very intrigued and hooked while playing. It goes from easy to very hard. Half of these reviewers prob didn't even best all the bonus levels and unlock the pause button/options

- I'd buy it again if I could

It was totally worth the money. This is more of an art piece than a game. I love this so much. It was so moving and intense that it actually brought years to my eyes. I feel stupid saying that about a videogame, but there's something so beautiful and profound about this app that have me such intense feelings of emotion. I am going to recommend this app to all of my friends and even my English professors.

- Brilliant

I beat the game in one sitting, but the ending (oh, what an ending!) made the game well worth the purchase price. I was not in the least bit upset about beating the game quickly since the original levels have great replay value and there's also a bunch of bonus content. Such a perfect game! Kudos to the developer for putting out one of the more original and creative games to hit the App Store in a while.

- Too much logic to handle.

Spoilers I think I thought this would be fun. Simple little game. Then it told me there is no cube. There is no exit. What if it could make my eyes hurt. What if it could drive my patience. In the end, I realized I should've figured out the flip over your device thing so much earlier from all of the clues. I love these games that make you think. I know question every game I've ever played.

- Stunning

This is worth more than it's sold for. This game is more of something to look at in awe than to play. It's a work of art; seen differently, heard differently, and interpreted differently for every person. It has no hidden pay-to-win parts, only you delving into your own mind for the knowledge of who you really are and what a game really is. What will you discover about yourself when you play?

- Awesome.....simply awesome

This game has a neat and challenging concept that you will find absolutely useless in the end, the hard part is getting through without dying, I highly suggest buying this because this game makes you think, it's not a puzzle game, it may not even be a "game" but you will have to try it out yourself and see. (Good job for those who find the super secret!)

- Funny and entertaining game.

The game is a bit humorous at the players expense. A lot of theatrics and anticipation involved, but still entertaining. Made me feel like a moron after the first run through the game when the revelation occurs. It's witty humor and game play deserves 5 stars, we need more games like this in the App Store. Nice change of pace to play a game like this. Thank you developers for such a refreshing title. :)

- Brilliant, Genius, Beautiful, Inspiring

In all my years downloading hundreds of apps, I have NEVER come across a game like this. It is absolutely MIND BLOWINGLY well done. Turn on the sound, and don't stop playing until you've at least made it through the entire first round of levels. Well, well worth the money. Kudos to the dev team for one of the best games I've ever played on my phone.

- Loses luster

The game is brilliant, like most people say. However, after the game reveals "it's trick" for you, and you discover how to really win, the final "level" (you'll know it when you get there) really loses it's luster. It goes against what the rest of the entire game builds up on. It's just a frustrating, poorly designed grind swamp with a lack of atmosphere and tension. I have no clue whose idea it was to design the last area in such a way that failure forces you to repeat 15 minutes of work. Stupidity at its finest.

- Unbelieveable

I have never reviewed an app before, but this game changed that. It also changed many things about the way I think of things, leading me to question things I would never have thought could be wrong. At the end of the game it throws you off so much that you just have to try one more time- just get 1 less death. AMAZING.

- Not as clever as it thinks

This game is not as clever as it would like to think. It steals a lot from recent indie hits (Braid, The Stanley Parable, and Limbo all come to mind.) But, surprisingly, it doesn't do a whole lot with the good ideas it stole. The game mechanics are really simple, and the puzzles never offer anything too interesting. The high-minded computerized voice-over that accompanies the gameplay would lead one to believe that this game is somehow pushing the limits of what a game can be. The game doesn't do that. And the voice-over quickly becomes annoying.

- Superb

Great, amazing, terrific art direction and a great and strange premise. It may seem easy at first, but it gives you the power to play through it twice, but easily, then once you get to the end, you use that power and find that "Easy" is not included in these "Orange Rooms". Trust me, it's tough. The 9'999$ Joke was great and I cannot believe people fell for it! It is just great and worth the 1.99$.

- Fricking amazing!!!!!!!

This game is a must have. Best (ios) I've played in years!! I like the in-app pop up to complete the level. This game is unique and has beautiful graphics. Disclaimer to those who can't handle strobe effects ONLY one level has it I believe in the 7th or 8th level. Other than that this is an awesome game to have,well worth the money.

sometimes i want to tell people ‘i hope you die the most painful death’ but then i remember some people might b scared of me 😙✌️

trans fantasy party

fully aware of what she's doing. i love the idea of him watching that and wanting to thwart that march to death. the trickster in him believing there is more than dying in battle, and sometimes it can be a worse defeat when someone beats you at your own game of trying to die.


@GwendolynKansen Falling is such a big thing. Everyone I know who dies old dies from a fall. They are healthy. They fall. They get sick in the hospital (infection) and die. Or they decay rapidly post fall. Sometimes become dependent on painkillers. I exaggerate, but you get the point. ;)
