Praise for Lifeline:
Ive played many games that I find engrossing, but Lifeline may be one of the first that changed the way I thought about my daily routine, which leapt off the screen and became a part of my lived experience. - Eli Cymet, Gamezebo

For a few brief hours I cared really cared about the fate of a completely fictional character. I dont think any other game Ive played has made me feel that way before. - Matt Thrower, PocketGamer

Actually been playing the android version for the past 2-3days and really enjoying it so far. Highly recommended if you've enjoyed past Lifeline titles

Great addition!

This one is a great addition to Lifeline lore! In the first game, I never got Taylor killed, although it took me a second time through to save everyone who could be saved. I did poor old Arika in during the first task in LL2, I also got Taylor and Adams killed in the last 2 installments before getting it right. But, oh boy, this time--I've gotten Alex killed 3 times already! I haven't gotten to the end yet--I've kept it in slow mode and just rewound to the last action each time, so it's still all up in the air. The writing is really sharp, the balance of pop culture humor and drama in this one is just right, and I like the nods to Arika's story (the only one in this "timeline," I guess). The mystery is good, I'm enjoying the plot, and the character of Alex is interesting. I haven't felt this drawn into the story since the first game--it really feels like I'm texting someone! Can't wait to see how it all turns out. The story of the greens is getting more complicated, and I hope that it keeps going through a few more installments, I'm not ready for it to end.

Not sure about the end of this one--a bit disappointing. The worst thing is, though, that I got asked for my email again, just like at the end of Silent Night. It made the whole experience feel like a marketing tool to get my email instead of a cool story. Perhaps if app sales kept track of the fact that they have my email from Silent Night and didn't ask me again, it wouldn't seem so manipulative. As it is--we've got two stories that seem to end the exact same way: this isn't a story, this isn't art in any way, we're just playing with your brain and emotions while you get to know the characters in hopes of making our email list as big as possible to sell as many games as possible. I've never seen something so much fun utterly ruined in the end this way by a marketing pitch. And that's basically the exact text: "I agree to receive Lifeline marketing communications." I get deeply immersed in a game, I really enjoy it, and the whole experience ends like that--will I agree to receive marketing materials. It destroys all the mood and fun that's been building for days. There's no "suspension of disbelief" that comes from reading a good book, watching a good movie/tv show, or playing a good game because when you come to the end, instead of the credits, you get a question about receiving marketing materials. It was clunky at the end of Silent NIght--this one was worse. It feels like the app was trying to pat me on the back for a couple days specifically to get me to this point--yes, keep sending me marketing materials. This is how the greens will take over the world... Massive, epic, total, complete fail, 3mingames.
