It’s no secret that I love Fran Bow. So this is not so much a review of the game itself as, again, a review of what’s been done with the mobile port. Jeez. I’m only two reviews into my freelance career as a game reviewer, and so far it’s been all mobile ports.
I shouldn’t complain, though. I think it’s great that adventure games are coming out on mobile devices, because a) mobile devices are very well geared to adventure games, and b) it means that adventure games are now (potentially) being played by people who would otherwise go, “I’m too busy to play adventure games.”
In fact, it means you can easily squeeze in half an hour of games like Fran Bow over a lunch break, which is exactly what I did.
