Description: As the protagonist Lon, you awake from hypersleep just in time to encounter a space anomaly that sends your ship careening towards an alien planet called Paracosma. You awaken from the crash- now deep beneath the alien waves. You encounter a beautiful and curious creature that seems to only bark “Yep.” Yep appears to want you to follow- reacting to your movements and actions. Perhaps Yep will come in handy when it comes to finding some way to power up your ship.

Review: Let’s get the obvious thing out of the way now. There are no more chapters of this adventure coming anytime soon. So you are left with the first one only and this review has to be based on that single episode. As always with free apps and games, it is a question of whether or not it is worth a download. The answer when it comes to Life of Lon: Chapter 1 is…maybe. It’s something fun to chuck the kids into I suppose, but it’s little more than a slightly interactive cartoon and when I mean slightly you can only touch and move what you are told to do. Sure it looks great and the story is something you can slip into but it only lasts 10-minute tops and then there is no more. It’s a hard one to call as a lot of work has gone into this, but I have to say it is not worth it which is a crying shame.
