can only process a fraction of papers in the time allotted, meaning less income and family dies faster. they need to rebalance this for mobile.
I searched the Apple Store for a long time but couldn't find this game. Recently, it was a pleasant surprise that he suddenly appeared. It was as fun as on the computer and the price was also good.The fly in the ointment is his Chinese translation, which is different from the computer version, which makes it difficult for me to judge the issuing city of passport.
Best non mobile mobile game ever.
Y’know I was hesitant at first but the mobile format for this game works smoothly and effortlessly. I don’t know how you manage to make literal paperwork interest but they did it and I’m hooked!
Not a fun game. Waste of money
I remember playing this in middle-school on PC when it first came out and later once they ported it to iPad. This (along with FTL) we’re two of the best indie games of that era to get ported to iPad, but neither had iPhone versions… until now!! I thought it was a bug when I was browsing through the App Store and saw a cloud download button next to… Papers, Please. So, I clicked on it, and much to my surprise, after *all* these years, Lucas Pope went out of his way to redesign the gameplay to fit on these tall phone screens we have now, much like he did for multitouch on the iPad years ago. Thank you!! Not only that, but at least in my experience, this redesign has made the game much easier by virtue of greater efficiency in accepting and returning documents, making it easier to earn money and progress. I’ve gotten further in the story I’m the past couple days than I ever did all the other times I played it. If you haven’t taken a look at this modern indie classic, give a spin and enjoy doing your part for your country! Glory to Arstotska!!
It’s really fun until you get about 10 days in and then it’s just the same ol that ver and over again. For $5 it’s an easy purchase but I can’t see much in the way of replaying for the different endings when it’s so slow to progress.
I started playing with my earbuds connected to my phone via Bluetooth. Heard the game audio just fine. Then took them off and disconnected them from my phone and couldn’t hear the game. Have restarted phone and the app since then and I still can’t hear anything
Papers belongs on mobile platforms. Playing vertically is very welcome. I do wish I could close and open the reference docs, and in the game mode, Endless > Perfection, paused on your error longer before exiting.
Great game, wish apple made it easier to see achievements. Gotta hand it to the developer for responding
