Took the plunge and I’m loving it. First, the game is gorgeous, with top notch visuals, music, and VO that make for a truly immersive experience. The story mixes a post-apocalyptic setting with a myth-like narrative that so far is both intriguing and emotionally resonant.

As for the gameplay, imagine a “Go” title but with more open puzzles and free movement. The basic mechanic involves “possessing” creatures with different abilities to clear a variety of environmental obstacles. There’s also turn-based combat in which you can possess enemies to fight each other — it’s all one-hit kills, though, so it feels more puzzle-like than tactical.

All in all, this is a beautiful and engaging game, and one of the best App Store surprises since, well, ICEY.

BTW — this is a port of a fairly well received Steam game.

Thanks for the detailed impressions SquareZero! I have been on the fence finding the setting and possession mechanic compelling, but unsure of the immersion and replayability. You make a great case with a more open world version of the Go series gameplay mechanics. Your impressions often mirror my own, and as such I'll support this dev and hit the buy button for Peregrine 🤓 ~Insane amount of great puzzle experiences coming to iOS lately 👍

Played this last night and I really like it a lot. But now Im stuck on the first indoor section... keep getting killed by falling off a ledge. Guess Ill see if I can find a walkthrough. *Sigh*

FYI, this looks great on iPad Pro!!
