Flatline - No realistic help options 2/5
I'm forced to choose between 2 unrealistic options I need to be able to give helpful advise and quicker recovery times to redirect subject
Loved it! 5/5
My favorite of the Lifeline games so far. Definitely keeps your heart racing
Liked it 4/5
I've played all of the Lifeline games and enjoy them. Many reviewers complained that the earlier games went too fast. The reviews on this one say it goes too slow. I guess you can't make everyone happy. I've loved them all. I liked how much deeper this game was. My only negative about this one is how often I would tell her to do something and she would just refuse. Why give me an option? I know I have to frustrate her sometimes, but it happened even when it wasn't necessary.
Quirky, awesome, engaging 5/5
This is my second Lifeline game (I played the with Alex first), and it's an awesome, unique experience (even without an Apple Watch). The real-time nature of the narrative contributes to its engaging nature. I find myself actually caring what happens to Taylor, which is the same feeling I experienced when playing Lifeline: Crisis Line with Alex. I had to look up the order in which to play the other games, since 3 of them star Taylor. Right now I'm simultaneously playing Lifeline, Lifeline 2: Bloodline, Lifeline: Whiteout, and Lifeline: Flatline since they star characters other than Taylor, as I want to play the Taylor entries in order (Lifeline, then Lifeline: Silent Night, then Lifeline: Hallway to Infinity). These games are definitely worth playing. I'd love to see how the experience differs when playing with an Apple Watch. Regardless, I highly recommend all of the games in the series. They do have an overarching theme that ties them all together (the threat of the green-eyed woman and/or the odd, green alien tentacle blobs that can enter your body Wrath of Khan style). I like the fact that some of the games are sci-fi, one is fantasy/magic themed and one is basically survival horror, and all of them adhere to the overarching theme of the green mind-controlling alien creatures that you must either destroy or avoid at all costs. I highly recommend them.

This is pure entertainment. It's starts and a good pace and it's easy to stay on track story-wise.
In a way, you feel like Cortana talking to Master Chieh, except on a more human scale. This is my first Lifeline game and I will definetely be playing more!
Needs to be fixed 2/5
The story is ok. Too much waiting. I almost finished the game but it restarted. It won't let me go back
Great game!! 5/5
Not my favorite 4/5
Out of all of the lifeline games this has to be my least favorite. Like other reviewers have been saying, it takes forever for Wynn to do anything. It's exhausting and it makes game play extremely choppy. I don't feel like you really learn any of what's going on until 3/4 into the game. I actually thought about self sabotaging to get her killed so I could put it on fast mode just to get through all of the tedious pauses. Also what's up with not seeing the full text responses? This is the only game that doesn't allow that and it's pretty annoying. All of that being said, it's still a lifeline game and it's still a good time but definitely on the bottom of the list as far as favorites go.
Great game 5/5
If you like games like telltale where you choose the story, this is one of the best games up there
I like the plot, but the app doesn't work well sometimes 3/5
The story is fascinating. New horror theme instead of space adventure in the past several games. The only problem with this is that wynn is so slow and need to wait after each choice. The app doesn't work sometimes. There is no text on the screen and you need to close it from the background and restart to resume.
Best game 5/5
By Game probe
The story line is so awesome and pretty much better than anything I've ever played
By N. Fairwood
Atmospheric and well written, Flatline impressed me. Its focused and interconnected themes of horror are effective, with great sound design to back the story. Other Lifeline games have contained elements of the horrific, and with Flatline those elements are expanded upon and put center stage.
More Stimulating that animated games 5/5
Despite being text only, these games are engaging and get you sucked in, like a good book. I recommend all of them: Flatline, Lifeline 1 & 2, Crisis Line, Silent Night, Infinity, and Whiteout.
Simply Amazing 5/5
This series is so amazing. You can't help but get attached to the characters at some point. Can't wait for more!
I've never experienced a game like this, I legitimately was in suspense and fear for the character the whole time, not too hard or easy, this game is simply perfect, I wish it were even longer!
Good game but not as good as Whiteout
By Wynning isn't everything
The disjointed play is aggravating. I get that the character has to sleep, but making the player wait so long is ridiculous. At the beginning, it seems like any logical answer of holding back and opting for safe behavior will work fine, but at a certain point, after several multi-hour sleep cycles, you get stuck in an all-the-sudden no-win situation with absolutely no apparent clue where you screwed up. Then, you have to start all over and wait every time Wynn wants to sleep. Very frustrating and aggravating game play. It's like reading the old "Twist-a-plot" books a million times until you figure out the magic key. Zero adaptive play. The music...it's interesting for about 5 minutes, but the dramatic crescendos don't match the intensity of the activity going on in the game dialog. I turned it off pretty quickly. If I could make one recommendation to the game creator...download the old Infocom text based games and play them. You will learn a lot from that experience.
Good game 5/5
[ AWAITING TRANSMISSION... ]
Is very fun
[ AWAITING TRANSMISSION... ]
And we'll put
[ AWAITING TRANSMISSION... ]
The only problem I have is when dude falls asleep he's actually asleep.. game isn't no 3minute game.. dying to read more and interact but my guy past out and I feel like I've already been waiting an hour for my game to get back to me..
I played this game all the way through, and everytime I failed and had to rewind I was sad that I killed Wynn, it really feels like you are speaking to someone on the other side
Choices effect your character
By Bubbaj 911
I have played most the other lifelines and I'm liking this one so far.
The other lifeline games are better than this one. No empathy with the main character. Too many pauses after almost no dialogue. Too many false endings with no real logic to find the correct path. Just never really felt engaged by the story.
Way too slow 2/5
It has an interesting story but it's way too slow and takes out any fun it already had. Between every decision you have to wait from 5 minutes to 5 hours. In my opinion not worth the dollar.
I'm a huge follower of the lifeline series and I loved this game. The story was engaging, and seeing them delve into another genre is awesome. I love Wynn to death and I really liked the ending? It definitely adds a layer to the overarching "Lifeline" plot too. They say we'll see Wynn again, but the sooner the better.
Love it!!! 5/5
By Ich bin Michael
I hade to right a review for this game. I love how it's different from the rest. I want to see more horror Style lifeline stories in the future. It truly is a unique and thrilling game.
It's a game 5/5
I'm bored lol
Great Game 5/5
I was slightly obsessed with this game. I really did like that you could go back and make different choices without having to start the game over from the beginning.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
BRING TAYLOR BACK WE MISS HER!!!!!!
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!
By UncleSlam Temple
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.
