If you’re into reading riveting stories, Choices: Stories You Play is the game for you. Similar to Episode – Choose Your Story, this game consists of you choosing a story and being able to decide what the future holds for your character. While I was looking through the vast array of stories, I decided to pick Nightbound which was featured in the Horror section. Nightbound’s synopsis: “A trip to New Orleans plunges you into a supernatural war, bound together with roguish Nighthunter.”
You get to pick your character and his/her name. I called my character Alex and it’s his 25th birthday where he’s hanging out with his best friend in a new city. Before meeting his friend, he wakes up from a scary dream where he’s being chased by a zombie and somehow, the zombie ends up in his real life and kills him. If your character dies, you have to start over again. I found this method really interesting and reminded me of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch where you have to survive through the game, but if you make a wrong move, you have to start again.
The graphics to me aren’t as impressive as Episode – Choose Your Story. The reason for this is because you can only see them from their chest up and the only time they move is when their facial expressions change. However, with Episode is that the characters can run, dance, fall over, you name it! I just think a little more emotion in the characters would be nice – not just “pods” they’re in to change color depending on their moods.
Music & Sounds
The music and sounds definitely make up for the poor use of emotions in the game. The music is constantly changing in Choices: Stories You Play and it changes depending on the mood. For example, when my character was running away from the zombie, the music was fast-paced but when he finally locked himself in the cave, all you could hear was a heart beating.
The controls in Choices: Stories You Play are very simple and only consist of tapping. You tap to go to the next slide, tap to decide what you’re going to play and tap to design your character. The controls don’t need to be any more complicated than this, however, it is just a reading game after all.
The Power of in-app Purchases
You can complete Choices: Stories You Play without making an in-app purchase, however, it definitely helps. Sometimes characters will ask you to do something special with them and you have to use diamonds to accept. But I definitely don’t think they’re necessary.
- 20 diamonds for £1.99
- 60 diamonds for £4.99
- 250 diamonds for £19.99
- 550 diamonds for £38.99
- 1500 diamonds for £99.99
- 5 keys for £1.99
- 30 keys for £9.99
- 150 keys for £38.99
Choices: Stories you play has definitely become another one of my favorite choose your story games. The stories featured are fun to control with a vast array of genres to choose from. However, I do feel as if the graphics are a big weakness and it would be nice to design your character in more detail than just their skin color, hair, and clothes.
