    "The Wolf Among Us is an awesome noir game. I love that I can play it on iOS as well as my favorite consoles. It's a super unique game and I've certainly never played anything like it before. It's a challenging game, but it makes you think and leaves you wanting more."

    "FRAMED is a nice alternative to the bright, cartoony puzzle games that fill the app store. Instead, FRAMED is a noir-styled puzzler that lets you rearrange the pages of a comic book. The story is immersive and interesting, and the style for the artwork is an absolute delight. Very satisfying gameplay. "

    "I bought this and waited eagerly for the next installment. Unfortunately, they went to a "free" model with ads, which really sucks for immersion. Still, it's a nice, dark game; you can almost smell the cigar stench."

    "The atmosphere that this game builds up is genuinely quite good for a mobile game, I don't think you'll be jumping out of your chair, but it's got it's moments. Only downside is the controls can be somewhat awkward at times, but it's not too bad."
