Description: Interact and travel through all the solar system experiencing the amazing life of Annie Amber, from her birth until her final days, solving puzzles of increasing complexity while you unlock her memories. Use just your head to move or to solve the puzzles!

Review: To be honest, it is hard to capture the feeling of playing Annie Amber into words. It’s a surreal world that tells the story of a child form life to birth. Played out in small ‘planet’ like environments this game is beautiful to look at, but yet also strange and almost alien like. The slow focus based movement will put a lot of people off this game, but once you start to commit to it the storyline soon unfolds and you feel the need to learn about the whole life of Annie Amber. Its more of a visual treat than a game as the few puzzles there are hardly tax anyone’s brain

Sadly this is just one of those games that you need to download for yourself in order to know if you will enjoy it or not and it will often divide peoples opinions. Personally, I enjoy it, but having been through the storyline already on the Rift version I found it quite boring the 2nd time as I found myself wanting to get to the more interesting points rather than go through the whole story. If you’re not sure you will like it its best to give this a miss, but if you think it might be your cup of tea, it most probably is.
