Description: You come round as your escape pod plummets into the inky waters of a distant flooded planet. Comms are down and power failing. You have no choice but to head out into…the dark.
Review: The only thing I kept thinking about while “playing” ‘The Dark’ was what the point of it was. You seem to be in some sort of jetboat pod thing and you can speed towards balls of light. There is no music, no sound effects and seemingly no gameplay at all. Some of the wave effects are nice I suppose as well as the light effects, but there is just no point to it. You should have been in glass or something to protect you, you should have been able to jump into and out of the water if you wanted and maybe the waves got stronger the more time went on. It might only cost £0.79, but I not be recommending this anytime soon. Not until there is at least a small point to it.
