App description: ICEY is a 2D side-scrolling action game. As you follow the narrator's omnipresent voice, you will see through ICEY's eyes and learn the truth about her world.

Alright, you caught me! This ISN'T really just a simple 2D action game, and you WON'T be seeing through ICEY's eyes... NOR will you learn the truth about her world." says the narrator.

ICEY is a Meta game in disguise. The narrator will constantly urge you in one direction, but you must ask, "Why? Why am I following his directions? Why can't I learn the truth about this world and ICEY's purpose here?" Fight against his tyranny, and uncover what's really going on for yourself!

In fact, you can become ICEY, and let loose the shackles of your own identity. You are ICEY, and ICEY is you... if you want it that way. Feel free to keep hold of your own self, if you wish.

Now Is the Time For You to Discover the Truth.

Got this earlier. Great hack n slash that reminds me a little of Dust.

Great humor in it as the narrator gets mad at you when you don't follow the recommended path. Venturing out usually will lead to finding some secret, but there is no map so have been getting a little lost.

High quality.

Got it earlier on iOS? If so, do the controls work well on touch screen?

wh......... huh ? I never expected to see this on a mobile port ??! anyway, it's quite an experience. it might take 5-6h of your time. and honestly it's definitely worth 3$ instead of the 9$ it costs on steam. the only drawback is that I've played it when there was chinese voice acting, and while I didn't get a word of it, there was many emotions coming out of it; last I heard on many youtube's walkthrough, the english voice acting is really bad or at least really not inspired (so if the original voice acting is included, is a 9/10). you gotta understand it's the kind of game where when you decide to go left while the narrator tells that ICEY "understood it was time to go right", the narrator kinda totally lost his shit and totally freaks out. there's times when he even calls the editor and talk about "yeah, there's been some delays but I've got the hang of this, trust me, the beta is already approved !" and then he proceeds to trash you, like, live. and it works way much better with the original chinese voice acting. anyway, not only is this game totally about constantly breaking the 4th wall, but the combat system is actually good, on par with what "dust: an elysean tail" has to offer. there's no customization in sight other than "buying" new combos, theres' really nothing more to it than pushing forward and trying to piss of the narrator, really. once you feel you got the most out of it, you'll delete it. and again, that's not a bad thing, for the few bucks it asks for.

Earlier meaning just earlier this morning. I haven’t had any issues. Takes a little getting used to and what combos to use where/when, but they seem spot on.
