Google play link: Dark Stories

darkstories1Features/Description (copied from Google Play):

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 😉

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. 🙂

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! 🙂

This app is quite a nice looking one. The purpose of this post is just to introduce this social media (plus messaging) app to you. I am still in the process of inviting some friends to use the app so I can demonstrate the other features. But for now, this is the initial review.

This is how the Home part looks like (above). There are several options to choose from: Chats, Calls, Contact, Timeline, Spot, SOS Places, Social and My Account.

If only I had friends on here (at the time of writing), I’m sure I’ll be able to demonstrate the above features better. 🙂 Now let us just move on to the other features.

One of the best features are: 1) ability to spot friends nearby 2) send SOS messages 3) get a list of places to visit such as restaurants and shops and also events that are happening near you. You can also join and interact in different communities within the PeN app. You can also earn PeNNey while using the app’s features. Earning more will give you more chances of winning prizes!

You can easily navigate within the app due to this nice looking sidebar. Also, you can edit your profile in any way you like. Although my review is limited, I think the features are really useful and I cannot wait to use them. I’d have to get my friends to use it too!

Try this app! 🙂
