ATTENTION!

THIS GAME IS MEANT TO BE PLAYED WITH FRIENDS IN PERSON. IF YOU ARE ALONE YOU CANNOT PLAY!

Dark Stories is an easy to play and fun game but some of the stories are quite difficult. All the stories are fictional. To solve them, the players will need to prove their skills as detectives.

HOW TO PLAY
Dark Stories must be played in group. A person -chosen as narrator- picks a mystery and reads its description aloud.
Then he/she reads its solution without telling the other people. The rest of the players then have to make questions in order to solve the mystery.

The narrator can only answer the questions using “Yes”, “No” or “It is not relevant”. The only possible solution is the one given at the back of each mystery card. If the answer is still not clear enough, the players must follow the narrator’s interpretation of the mystery.

EXAMPLE
A typical fragment of a gameplay could be:

Player1: “Did he die because of the shot?”
Narrator:”No”
Player2: “Was he poisoned?”
Narrator: “No”
Player3: “Did he have children?”
Narrator: “It’s not relevant”
Player1: “Are there other people in the story?”
Narrator: “No”
Player2: “Did he commit suicide?”
Narrator: “Yes”

END OF THE GAME
When the narrator considers that the story has been solved enough, the narrator can conclude the game and read the whole solution.

It is up to the narrator to give some clues if the story is in a deadlock.

WHEN TO PLAY
It is perfect for birthday parties, camps… and every situation in which you join several friends.

STORIES
This free App includes more than 50 stories and we will add new stories periodically.

Accidents, suicides, thefts… Will you be able to solve every mystery?

******************************************************

If you and your friends would like to play a puzzle game, then this app is perfect for you!

You only need to designate a narrator who will read the riddle (and the solution) and then answer yes or no to questions. This app is fun to play, I assure you!

Here are some samples of the riddles:

***************************************************

There is a tutorial at the beginning so you get acquainted with the game. There are two modes: the Puzzle and the Battle mode. I haven’t tried the Battle mode (multiplayer) yet because I wanted to practice first using the Puzzle mode haha πŸ˜‰

As mentioned above, the goal of the game is to clear all the cells in that particular level. The challenge here is to accomplish that goal in the specified number of touches. You must conjure a strategy to be able to pop all cells within the specified number of touches.

Basically, a cell transforms with each touch and the last transformation pops the surrounding cells, thus triggering a chain reaction of popping cells. This game is quite addicting and relaxing at the same time. The popping effects are simple yet elegant.

Here are some of the levels that I have played so far:

I have finished Level 10 and I hope to conquer the higher levels. πŸ™‚

You can also purchase pops for greater advantage:

I have a clip showing the popping effects, however, I just posted it on my Instagram account (follow me @yournoviceappreviewer): https://www.instagram.com/p/BSCuULjgy2P/

My account here on WordPress is just the basic account thus I am not allowed to post video clips. I hope to upgrade my account in the near future – as soon as I get hold of some funds! πŸ™‚

Please note! This game is free to play, but it contains items that can be purchased for real money. Some features and extras mentioned in the description may also have to be purchased for real money.

*********************

I have been playing this game for a few days now and it is kind of addicting. In this game, you play as a vlogger who is in the quest to be the next internet sensation. Basically, you just upload videos according to the trend. Do not worry, you do not actually need to do a video (haha!).

First, I chose my character and the name of my video channel (I just chose purple as my channel name, couldn’t think of anything good at the time). This game looks adorable and cute which is why this app caught my attention.

The next step is to choose a topic which you think will trend. After choosing the topic, you will have to wait for a certain time duration until your video is finished (this is the waiting time, you do not need to do anything related to the video). The longest time I waited (as of now) is an hour. There was also a video where I waited only for 30 minutes. I am not sure if this is consistent all through out. After waiting, the app will notify you that your cideo is finished and you can now publish it. The results will show you the “percent trendiness” of your video. So in the first video, I got 100% – I think all of us will get 100% for the first video haha. My succeeding videos never went beyond 50%. I am still getting the hang of this game.

You will also have to judge comments that come in (responses garnered through your video). Some of them are nice while others are mean and nasty comments. You have to sort them out so you can earn money.

For every published video, you gain money. You can use the money to market your channel to people. You can invest in word of mouth, social media, radio and magazine advertising etc. This really seems like simulating or mimicking real life vlogging haha. Well, I do hope the number of views can be easily attained in real life though. You can also buy and upgrade your studio equipment.

Also, there other vlogger out there (not just you) so you can visit their channel if they announce a live streaming video.

In the photos above, you will see these floating things: the coffee and.. I don’t know what that is (the left photo). The one on the left gives you money and the coffee gives extra energy. I forgot to mention that you can decrease the waiting time (video making) by tapping on your screen. So if you drink the coffee, you must tap the screen many times and the waiting time will decrease twice as much as the normal tapping.

There you go! Try this app. πŸ™‚
