I've been waiting hours**** Edit 5/5
***Alright she woke up, things are moving and I'm obsessed with this game!!
Original review: It's been hours that Wynn has been sleeping. I got a notification that she was waiting for me, go on, she's still sleeping. Wasted my money on this. If she wakes up I'll change my review.
AmaIng game 5/5
Amazing game and super intuitive!
Great game 5/5
Took a few times but I got Wynn to live
Okay but annoying 2/5
It's nice to have choices, but this Lifeline game has so many it takes the suspense out of everything. If I have to wait 1-2 minutes every time I choose something to do it just takes the fun out of it. The other Lifeline games give you a bit of story before choosing something else so it's engaging, but this game is like "turn the corner?" Or "wait and listen?" A bunch of times. It gets pretty tedious pretty fast. The protagonist doesn't seem too interesting either and I've been playing this game for a few days now. Check out the other Lifeline games. They are much better than this one.
Enjoying it so far, but... 3/5
Another interesting lifeline story. I'm only part of the way through it, but I already have a few criticisms that can lead to frustration. I'm finding it very difficult to stay engaged in the story when the game makes me wait 5 mins after every single time I tell the protagonist to do something. I'd prefer it to be like the other lifeline games, where Taylor could do things while talking to you, and not make you wait five minutes for him/her to open a door. My second criticism is not giving us the full answer when we are given choices between responses. It makes it hard to decide what I want to say to Wynn when I don't even completely know what I'm going to say. Fix these issues and this game easily gets 5 stars from me.
So I'm not very far at all into the game, and I already screwed up multiple times in a row because of the way talking to her works. You only see about 3-4 words of the message you are sending and then it's just a "..." and you have to guess what you are saying to her. I absolutely hate this feature because not only is it less engaging, but you never know what you are saying or how you are doing so. For example, I just played a little section where I told her to go to a room where there is blood on the ground, and she naturally didn't want to. Then the text option I chose said something along the lines of "you have to...", and what it really was was "You have to! There may be the medicine cabinets back there." She then got mad at me for yelling at her, ignored my advice, and her heart rate shot up. Then immediately afterward, she said she smelled something funny down the hall in this one specific room on the right. I then got an option to say "Don't go that...", so I chose it. I ended up saying to not go that way, and to turn around and go back the way she just came from. She got mad at me for saying something dumb, and her heart rate is now at a dangerously high 161 all because of a dumb game design choice that shouldn't even be in the game. I'm not done with the game yet, not even close, but even if it turns out to be my favorite one, I won't rate it higher than 2 stars, because this design choice makes no sense and ruins part of the experience for me, especially since the other games all have had the full message for you to see, but this one doesn't for some reason.
EDIT: literally right after typing this review it happens again "Head down the corridor...", but what it actually says is "head down the corridor. The animal may be nearby". Now her heart rate is super high after calming her down a little bit all because of some dumb design choice not present in any other lifeline game. 1.5 stars
It's alright but... 3/5
By The spacer02345678901
The reason I gave it three stars is because even though it has a great story and UI the game's data reset on me right before Wynn opened the door after 'killing' the dog attached to the platform which I wasn't very fond of. (And the gender fluid thing I didn't appreciate either, like, seriously I get it's a game but get that tumblr sh** out of here)
Lifeline never disappoints 5/5
So. I love lifeline. The first game was amazing and I've loved all of them since. This one was also amazing and very mysterious and interesting. However, why do you have to wait so often. I swear to god it took Wynn 3 minutes to open a door! Besides that this was just one more amazing lifeline game!
My favorite so far! 5/5
I usually don't write comments, but I had to for this story. This is my favorite story out of all the Lifeline games so far! I really enjoyed the horror atmosphere and was really engrossed the whole time. While I do like the sci-fi genre, I would really like to see more "horror" Lifeline games in the future.
Fake Reviews 1/5
These reviews are written as poorly as this game.
Can't get enough 💯 5/5
This series is so perfect. Can't stop playing.
Awesome game 5/5
By Louis she's
Please make a version from the greens point of view for the war or in the lab that wynn was in! Also make a second Flatline pls
Poor pacing, boring 2/5
Very slow. Lots of unnecessary pauses. Been playing casually for days and Wynn (the Taylor surrogate) has only made it down the hallway. No way to turn off the pauses at this point.
I don't need to say much to tell you to get this game.All I have to say is that it is immersive and it is easy to get emotionally invested in the character you try to help.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Need more Wynn 5/5
This game was soooooo fun and interesting to play pls make another Wynn and Alex story PLS
Igual que los anteriores es un juego excelente, además, para mi se las arregló para ser uno de los más emotivos de alguna forma.
BRING TAYLOR BACK WE MISS HER!!!!!!
Call me impressed! 5/5
By Rock Master!
I don't normally get into mobile games, but I love horror as a genre. I HAD to try this one out and I am NOT disappointed. Extremely descriptive and immersive. At times I forget I'm playing a game and focus on keeping Wynn alive and calm. I have no complaints. I love it.
Loved it! 5/5
I've been playing all of the Lifeline games and this is one of my favorites. It's longer than the Taylor stories and a bit more relatable. I got through in the first try instead of poking around the story time and time again. It wasn't that it was easier but that I knew what I would actually tell someone in that situation. It was slightly creepy without trying too hard and pretty awesome that sometimes you had to make the tough calls to keep the protagonist alive. Great game, can't wait for the next in the Wynn storyline!

Lost progress 1/5
By Branden Russell
Opening the app on the watch reset all my progress
I just got it and I already am attached to the character! I'm nervous most of the time and I'll answer just as I would in real life and I freak her out😂 I feel bad that the character has to deal with my anxiety as well as their own.
By Gadnuk, Chicken of Doom
Im a huge fan of the Life Line games, but this one falls a bit flat. Wynn is by far the least charismatic. She slows down the game with constant complaining, and takes away most of the suspense, replacing it with annoyance.
More like interactive fiction than a game you can impact 3/5
I was disappointed in Flatline when compared to the other Lifeline games. In sum, there's considerably less immersion. Your recommendation (when you are asked for one) almost always results in the same consequence, and you are never given more than two options. There are interminable delays in action that last well beyond what it should take the character to do in real life, for example, moving a chair could take 20 minutes.
The game also may have been rushed from a technical perspective. The code essential to reach the "best" ending wasn't available at the website provided, and I had to check a walkthrough. The character's pulse, shown at the top of the screen and supposedly a key feature of gameplay, usually bears no relationship to what is happening in the story.
I was fortunate to buy this on sale at $1.99, and even so it felt like a 99 cent game. I've read all the other Lifeline stories and I'm anxious to see how the plots coalesce, but I hope the developer reverts to the earlier style where your presence and decisions seemed to make a difference.
Fun game! 4/5
This was my first experience with a Lifeline game and now I'm going to look for more. As others have mentioned, wait times were a bit long, but I didn't mind because I had several games going so could visit one of the others! Really fun game that forced me to think rather than just shoot 'em up like in an RPG!
Loved it. 5/5
I really enjoyed this game. Loved every minute of it. I was sucked in until the very end. Please continue to make lifeline games. They're the only mobile games I really ever play anymore and I hate it when they end.
Possibly the worst in the series 2/5
Make a decision presented from two bad decisions.
Wait anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes.
Read ten sentences.
Wash and repeat.
As a trauma therapist, none of the statements used for helping this person should ever be used in real life. It's like nails on a chalkboard. The worst gameplay option they've thought of is the heartbeat indicator.
Another solid entry 4/5
A little slower at first than the others and took me a bit to feel a connection to the character, but ended up being a great experience. Especially the nods and references to characters, organizations, and locations of the other Lifeline games.
Buggy and slow. 1/5
By Feline Muse
Started off okay but took a dive into the bore-zone really fast. Shall I put on my socks? Sure! Okay! Wait 10 minutes while I put my socks on! Okay! Zzzzzzzzzzz. Jeez............then it crashes and starts over from the beginning! Fix that please!
Deep and complicated
Love these games, EDIT and it's working again 5/5
The first review was just to say I like the games, but the app was malfunctioning.
Thank goodness, the issue seems to have resolved itself (I haven't noticed any app update so we can chalk it up to Apple) and the game is working on watch and phone. I'd hate to leave a bad review for an issue that is resolved, because this game is really very good. Engaging, not overly-time consuming, the story is very well told and the choices you make allow you to really suspend disbelief and accept, for maybe 10 minutes at a time, that you are the sole external source of advice and support for a young woman (I'm guessing the gender, here) trapped in a hellish nightmare come to life.
Very engaging and rich. Well worth the couple bucks. Buy it and choose her own adventure.
Something different 5/5
By Sgt Cate
It's amazing, a choose your own adventure story with sound effects. I can't recommend this game enough! There's an awesome story with real consequences to your actions, definitely worth your time.
Fun game--feels like you are really talking to someone. You have to make some tough calls!
Only thing that irks me is that the pulse isn't realistic at all! Unless Wynn was some Olympic medalist, there's no way his heart rate would drop so low. His heart rate wouldn't get that high either, unless he was some immensely overweight dude after a severe work out. He wouldn't be able to do what he does if he was, though!
Even better than the last! 5/5
I love all of these games and they're getting even better in their gameplay and their function! Thanks!
Excellent game, very engaging -- a real throwback to the text adventures of my youth, but modernized. Creates a super engrossing, spooky, and dystopic atmosphere.
Leaves me on the edge of my seat!
Another. Bangin'. Story. 5/5
The Lifeline Series have been my favorite on-the-go games to play, and ever since the original Lifeline, I often find myself searching the App Store to see if there have been any new Lifeline releases. 3 Minute Games can expect this loyal customer to buy every future release from the Lifeline series! (As long as we don't make another Whiteout 😉)
Always Great 5/5
Lifeline games a fantastic. Little frustrating if you overlook minor details but the end is worth it. I find this story far superior to Lifeline 2 and Silent Night.
Not sure the point of the elevator though, but fun to read the alternate endings nonetheless.
By Play 378
Is there any scenario where Wynn lives?
Txt game circa 1982. 2/5
Nowhere in the description does it say this s a txt game. This should really have a free trial with option to buy the full version. Some may choose to do so; I would not. I'm wondering if I could get my money back? What a waste.
Life line 5/5
I love all of your games. The story lines are great and they keep you on your toes. You never know what is around the corner. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to your next challenges.
Will this be upgraded to multiple endings? 5/5
By Z the Cheetah
Because just this ending doesn't give us answers if the Green will be defeated and Wynn not dying also is there going to be a sequel to this storyline of this game series? Because it was great but I think it would be better if we had a window on what the character is actually seeing instead of them describing what's going on.
My favorite so far 5/5
Definitely my favorite out of series.
By Dog darn
Game pausing is too slow!
Easy to play 5/5
This series of games is the easiest thing to play throughout the day. And not be too distracted from your job.
I love Lifeline 4/5
These are some of my favorite games and it's so easy to get attached to the characters. However I do have to say that Wynn is my least favorite protagonist. Incredibly whiny and constantly asking if she can trust me.
I know this was made to be realistic but she got on my nerves pretty fast. 😂
A little minorly major bug that might not even be a bug 4/5
Before I start I'm going to say that I've played all of the other lifeline games and LOVED them, this one is no different, however... I was about 5-6 days in when all of the sudden, the game lagged out, and shows (still does) all of my previous conversing with Wynn, but it restarted the game! With the same exact dialogue, not sure if this was supposed to happen... If it was, please get back to me soon!
Love it! 5/5
Lifeline is awesome 5/5
By Biogear 9808
The intensity was triling. The monitor was a nice touch. Hope there are more like it
