App description: Pocket Gamer: Game of the Week "You'll rue the day you missed this one."

Kotaku "There's something comforting about the cold and dreary future of Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, the pixelated PC masterpiece now available on iOS."

Joystiq "Being able to play such a well-crafted interactive story on the go was an attractive option for me from the beginning, and Gemini Rue proves to be a great example of how the adventure genre can be adapted to a mobile platform. "

MacLife "If you like unspooling a good sci-fi detective story, Gemini Rue is well worth the investment. 4/5"

Edge Online "Gemini Rue is an accomplished homage that rivals the very titles that influenced it. 8/10"

Washington Times "Its an old school masterpiece, requiring hours of game play that stimulates the brain rather than trigger finger."

App Spy "This is an excellent port of an excellent adventure. 4/5"

DESCRIPTION

A sci-fi noir adventure in the tradition of "Blade Runner" and "Beneath a Steel Sky."

Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

Any plans of porting it to the iPad? I'm loving this on my iPad and would love to get Resonance on my iPad as well later on.
Heh, "their other game"? They've got eleven adventure games out in the ether (and on sale), Primordia being the most recent. Emerald City Confidential is off the cards for porting from Wadjet Eye, though, as that's in PlayFirst's hands.

Sure, what I meant was "their-other-very-high-profile-game-which-everyone-seems-to-say-it's-better-than-Gemini-Rue"

No offense to the other games, though.

Is it possible to view your inventory in this game? It feels like there should be some way of looking at some things (e.g. the sample of the Center 7 file from the mob boss.

How do you fix the lock pick with the Carbon ray stabilizer?

I can't bring up the menu to combine it???????

I just wanted to write this down so that a dev might see it. Thank you very much. This is the second game I ever paid to play and it was well worth it. Above everything else that has been mentioned in this thread, there is one very important reason why this game is so awesome:
(if you haven't found the easter eggs please don't read any further)

This game pays a gigantic tribute to Cowboy Bebop! The game not only takes place in a universe that resembles the universe of CB and deals with common themes, it actually features the crew as easter eggs.
