Best Title they have!!! 5/5
My favorite game so far. Really hope the end game is true and that we will be seeing Arika Lanpear again!
Absolutely loved it 5/5
I really enjoyed this game especially the story. I hope they make a sequel to this game!
Spell binding and enchanting 5/5
I absolutely love this game/app. I get so into the story and the main character Arika that I lose track of time. Can't wait for more
I loved this chapter!!!! 5/5
I loved this chapter!!!!! I hope they continue this with the Arika series like they did for the Taylor character.
Fun game but has some bugs... 2/5
By Mateo Wood
It seems like a fun idea, but there seems to be some bugs. Twice, I've been set way back in the game, which is especially frustrating since the game simulates real time. I was just getting into it when I opened up the app and was asked once again what my name was.
Just played through a 3rd time 5/5
This game is fantastic I've played all the games just waiting for the next one to come out and this one is my favorite. I've gone through and replayed all of them twice, I really hope the next one is about arika!
A wonderful experience 5/5
This was an enjoyable time passer.
Love to read again!!! 5/5
First off let me start by saying I do not normally write reviews. Growing up I had a hard time with reading and never took to reading. Definitely an awesome story. My top 2 favorites have been this one and Whiteout. Can't wait to see what they do next.... as sad as this may sound, I want to say thanks to the creators for helping me want to read again.
Apple Watch integration very buggy 2/5
Story progress constantly desyncs between my Apple Watch and my iPhone. I've lost hours of progress because of this
Great story 5/5
By Pacman 953677
No complaints at all, the devs really did a good job on this one.
Lifeline 2 5/5
By far my favorite of the lifeline series I can't wait to start the next one, the story progressed well and the fact the each choice can have a dramatic effect on the story is amazing
HB214 - Wonderful Story!!! 5/5
Just finished this and i am not disappointed. Very well developed and a lot of fun all the way around. It was a nice feature having the character acknowledge me by name making the interaction that much better. At some point with all her questions, i was expecting her to ask how i seemed know things as if i were some kind of time master or deity. Anyway, a very charming story - no pun intended. Loved it, please write another one with Arika. 👍👍
Best Game on the App Store 5/5
This game is, by far, the best game on the App Store. Of all the Lifeline games it has the most believable protagonist. It's a terrifying, gripping, suspenseful, tragic, and emotional story that will make you wish Arika Lanphear was a real person. My only criticism is they haven't made a sequel to this game. PLEASE MAKE A SEQUEL!!!!!
Great Story 5/5
I love all the lifeline games, but besides the original lifeline, this one is probably my favorite. I'm a sucker for magic and I felt so attached to Arika from the start. There was more story, too, and it was excellently written. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who likes choice games and more to those who played the original lifeline. Can I give it more than five stars? As an apology for constantly making Arika walk, heh.
One of the best 5/5
Besides a slightly anti-climatic and quick ending, this is one of the best Lifeline games, in my opinion.
Dear God 5/5
This is the kind of app that if it were a show, at the end you would stand up with tears in your eyes clapping until your hands hurt. This series of apps are truly wonderful. Im in high school and obviously hate reading more than life itself. But the way this story is told and morphed around what you decide, is brilliant. Top of the line game right here. 10/10 would recommend
Loved it 5/5
That was so good hope the next one comes out soon!
What the plot? 3/5
Read under your own discretion.
So when I played the first Lifeline app with Taylor, I actually felt as though his life was meaningful and his goals to stop the Greens were heroic and thought provoking. When I played this game, I felt nothing for Arika and the plot was thrown at me without remorse. The concept was interesting at best and I loved the fact that magic was involved, I just didn't like the fact that whole story was holding your hand while you were involved in getting three items and fighting the bad guys, the Greens. THE GREENS. The greens was the idea for Taylors plot, not this one. It felt like they wanted to make it connect to the previous game when it just made me feel disappointed instead.
The plot was mediocre, as I felt like the bad guys should not have been the aliens from the first game but a different thing altogether. I thought that this concept would be excellent if it was not in modern times but during some medieval fantasy era.
Arika didn't make me feel sympathetic for her and her sarcastic attitude felt abnormal and was an extreme version of Taylor's personality. It wasn't the best but it was still slightly enjoyable in the least.
Not as good as lifeline, but it's still crazy good. 5/5
Just finished. I could see how people finish on the first try. But, ending is great, story is great. Seriously, why are you still reading me? Just download it.
Ive never played a game this immersive before, and I can't imagine anything topping it. 5/5
By A person who uses this app
I played the first one and Silent Night before this one, and I think this one feels much more personal. Being able to have her call you by your name is a great addition to the game. It makes me feel like somewhere out there, there really is an Arika Lanhear, and a New Tenacity, and Monks of Time, and a Kildecatt's Curiosities, and a Floodland.
Wowed once again. 5/5
By That Toaster
Honestly, Lifeline is my new favorite series. It has an exceptional story that wows me every time. **SPOILER STARTS HERE** I'm currently playing this, at the part where Arika is watching the Greens burn, while doing the original on my phone.**SPOILER ENDS HERE** This series continues to wow me. I get attached to these characters over and over again. I would recommend to anyone looking for a really good story, and anyone in general. The fact that I'm not even done with the game, and writing a review in general is rare.
Good, but didn't meet expectations. 3/5
By A teenage boy
Right off the bat, let me say I adored the original lifeline. It definitely ranks among the best I have ever played. After finishing it, and reading the description of Bloodline, I was excited to jump in. Unfortunately, instead of plunging into a deep pool of immersion like I had with the first one, I bounced off a solid sheet of ice. I just couldn't get into this story. I'm not saying it isn't a good game, but don't assume you'll like it because you liked the first. This one is very different, and in my opinion not in a good way.
Great story telling 5/5
Working my way through the series. What a time.
Super fun 5/5
By G V 15
Love all the lifeline games. Great storytelling
Great fun! 5/5
By Man Wellington
This was great fun, the only downside is that there is a lot more waiting in this one than others I have played, but it's still a great experience!
The best one 5/5
Of the four I've played (lifeline, this, silent night, whiteout) this one is by far the best.
Keep playing! 5/5
At first I was disappointed with this one, but as I kept going it really pulled me in and I loved it. This series is totally awesome. I love the common threads throughout each of them that keep you wondering what you'll learn next. More please!! =)
Got my money's worth 5/5
By Is this nickname ok Apple?
This game is definitely worth getting. I had a lot of fun trying out different endings and learning about arika.
Love these games! 5/5
Seriously these are fantastic interactive stories
Repeating line of dialogue 4/5
When you are at the orphanage and you choose to tell arika to stab the hand, then she said it felt weird or something so I told her to go and she said what's the point blah blah blah so I said ok continue and it kind of reset back to before she had stabbed the hand by her saying it was screaming again and that she was going to stab it even though it already happened.
I have screen shots but no way to contact you guys within the app.
Loved it! 5/5
This was maybe even better than the first but just in a completely different way. It's much longer (I thought) than the first one.
I also want to mention I just love games that don't require an internet connection to work!
Loved this one so much. Great game.
Good, I love Arika! 4/5
This is a really good game if you love the Lifeline series. It's long too, which is nice. My one complaint is you don't get a real choice in what you say- you can click one of two options, but once the scene plays you say something different. It's irritating, but the game is still playable.
Very Disappointing 2/5
I LOVED the first Lifeline, but this one was nothing like it. The story was boring and the choices forced. The main character wasn't interesting and the progress was very slow. It's too bad. I love text adventures but I advise you skip this one.
My favourite iOS game series ever 5/5
This is by far the best game/ game series I've ever played on my phone. The first one is great and even though im only 1/4 way through the second it's already great
Skip this one 3/5
Looooved the first - really felt connected to Taylor. I've died early on in #2 and barely wanted to restart. I ignore her notifications on my watch. The story is blah, the character is blah (terrified yet cracking jokes?), and the pace is slow. I'll try Silent Night instead.
I mean - why does a mage carry a screwdriver with them at all times??
So engaging 5/5
By Wang Lang
I love this series. It's great to have a game you can play on your own time and it's so immersive!
Ok, not as good as the Taylor series. 3/5
This one felt a little dull, lots of directional choices to explore an area and lots of general conversation choices but not many that really felt like what I chose mattered. The story seemed very linear and like most of these games some of the dialogue didn't match the choice I made towards the ending. Still not a bad story, this one did take me the longest to finish but only because I lost interest half way through.
Amazing game 5/5
I love the story it's not much gameplay but the immersion is amazing I have never loved a app series as much as this
I love this series 5/5
It's like a scaled down telltale game
Not exactly memorable 3/5
The other games were very good though.
Love all of the lifeline installments. Bravo
Between the mediocre dialogue with incongruent time pop culture references and getting caught in an endless loop for days, it's goodbye for me. I'll try the next installment in the series.
Best Life Line game so far!!!! 5/5
By Quintendo 64
They really nailed the formula with this one. Amazing story, plot, characters. Really happy this studio found their way to bringing us such quality apps time and time again. Do yourself a favor and play these games from the first released to the last. You will def not regret it.
Oh my WORD. 5/5
The plot was amazing, with creative twinges each and every tap of the screen. It pulls at your mind during the day as you wait to hear back from Arika- to see if another one of your choices has condemned her to her demise, or to a step closer to victory. The dialogue prompts you to think, to laugh- and at one point, I swear, I let loose a tear, and I was on the brink of doing so at others.
I've played the first Lifeline game (which was phenomenal), and this one seems to be even better. My fingers are itching to buy the third, and I just can't wait to see what other Lifeline games will surface. Thank you a million times, Dave Justus.
Inferior to previous versions 3/5
Every 5-10 lines is a pop culture reference. It doesn't take itself seriously at all. At times it's interesting but mostly it seems written quickly and linearly.
There are even typos and repeated dialog all through it.
My favorite in the series 5/5
By Rag I
I have played all the Games in the Lifeline series and really enjoyed them all. However, this one was my favorite. The story was great and loved the interaction.
Loved it! 5/5
I really dug the story and having to wait while the main character had to perform certain tasks helped with the immersion.
Lifeline 2: Bloodline 5/5
I absolutely loved lifeline 2: bloodline! It was a lovely, thrilling story that touched my heart at the end of my path. I would love a sequel to this and want this series to keep on making! Good job 3 minute games!!
I love interactive fiction. Choice of Robots, the Sorcery! series… there's nothing quite like a well-written Choose Your Own Adventure-style game. The problem with Lifeline 2 is that your choices don't matter.
Most of the prompts you get are purely rhetorical questions. Even when the choices are superficially meaningful, their consequences aren't. After a while, I just started picking my answers at random. And I "won."
This isn't a game. This is just a dialogue tree.
