The Lifeline games are perfect but this app isn't. 3/5
I love the Lifeline games, which are so well done, but this app leaves a bit to be desired. I love the idea of an all-in-one app but this isn't quite that. Instead of granting access to all of the games and upcoming Lifeline info, you only get two games. Don't get me wrong - two free games is great! But if you're going to have free games wouldn't it make sense to have the free ones be the first two rather than two random games in the middle? What I really want is one app that allows me to access all of the Lifeline games (and even better factor in that I already bought them all separately) and then has the extra content as well. This would help me keep things much more organized on my phone! It would also ensure that I check the app every day because honestly I rarely check it since there isn't much keep me interested since all the games aren't on it and there's rarely any new content.
Happy to support this series 5/5
Easily my favorite thing on the App Store, Lifeline and 3-minute games never fails to impress. Been here since the original, and I'll stay here till the end.
Looking forward to meeting Taylor on the other half of infinity.
Nice game, but long waits 4/5
So far, the game is engaging and I like it. That being said, it almost seems wait periods are true to life...for example, when you tell the character to sleep, it seems that you have to wait 6 hours or so before the game continues. This is somewhat nice as it adds to the format of the game as being a genuine contact and communication with someone else, but it makes for a frustrating game play. Also, these breaks come about every ten interactions, so you play for maybe two minutes then have to wait for forever.
I'm disappointed in this addition, I have all the games (except the "halfway" one) but I can't play them from the library app. SMH
Yaaa 👩🏼🚀👩🏼🚀 5/5
Cool games I would rate it more than five stars but I can't.
Needs more. 3/5
I love silent night so far but there are only 2 games on it. One game doesn't even work! It is annoying and I want to delete it but I am still playing it. So...it is hard to decide to get it. (There is going to be one more game soon so technically 3 games).
Awesome deals and great content 5/5
The game is garbage. Horrible response. Doesn't save progress. If the device goes to sleep the game will be screwed up when you come back, unplayable.
By Red Beard III
The app has a lot to offer, but the one thing that is missing is being able to connect to the other Lifeline games already downloaded. It defaults to "not included do you want to go to App Store". Uh, no since I have already purchased them. I wish it would recognize that fact.
Cannot download all photos 3/5
I love the new photo gallery that was added, but I noticed that you can't download all of the pictures. The ones that you can't download are the "Taylor" and "Whiteout" collections. Other than that, keep up the great work!
Doesn't save & Too many ads! 2/5
This app doesn't save your progress on the ONLY REAL game. And there are WAY to many ads!!
I love lifeline 4/5
By Koala Apocalypse
I looooooove life line so much that I almost started crying because I love these games so much, I played every one except like 2 because I don't have iTunes money right now but I definitely will sometime soon ahhh I love this game so much!! ❤❤
Terrible - LIE: NO FREE GAME AS DESCRIPTION SAYS 1/5
App is terrible. Ad board. In the description where it says get a free lifeline game is a LIE and FALSE.
I'm a big fan of your work I downloaded this app and just got a billboard but thats okay because I really enjoyed all of the games made by this company. Keep up the good work guys!
Good App 5/5
I like the concept, but I have two questions:
1)Is there an ending to Lifeline Jump, since the player ends up going in circles forever?
2) Is the person in the Whiteout 2 advertisement a guy with girly hair, because Adam V was clearly "built" as a male replica!
You had one job! 1/5
Could have been a way to consolidate access to the Lifeline games. All it is is a glorified advertisement for all the games.
Just an ad billboard on your phone 1/5
This app is basically just one big ad billboard with links to all of the lifeline games in the App Store. Instead, it should be a "library"companion app that lets me import my past game purchases and play any/all of the stories from this one app (rather than still require me to have all the separate apps). Hopefully that's where this app moves to... right now it's useless for users!
Don't see the point of it 1/5
Downloaded the Library just to check it out, poked at it a bit, then deleted it because I don't see the point of it. It has a distracting ad-switching bar at the top, with images for each game at the bottom under "More from Lifeline". Tapping any of those images takes you to an Apple Store screen, where the "Open" button then opens the game already installed on my phone. Why create these extra steps when I could just open the game's app directly?
The Library's menu, when revealed, doesn't show that I already own the entire Lifeline series (even though they're all installed on the phone) and seems to exist only to provide shortcuts to 3 Minute Games's various social media channels. If I wanted to follow you on Twitter, Facebook, etc., I'd already be doing that and not need an app to provide those shortcuts. I've paid for all of the Lifeline games, get emails from you, and probably will continue to do so (though the bizarre and disturbing Flatline started me wondering why I was still keeping up with the series, you then redeemed yourselves by bringing Taylor back in the next game), but I am content to have only the game content - don't make my life more complicated by making me miss things if I don't slavishly follow every tweet you send and so on.
TL;DR: The Library app is a "let us shove ourselves further into your lives" promotion complication, not a simplification. It doesn't provide any reasonable game shortcut or game organization. It doesn't show what you own or display the game's content in the Library window for ease of use. For users, it's faster and easier to just keep the games on your phone, icons organized in order of release.
It's not there yet... 1/5
By Andrew Saunders
1. The jump game screen leaves this strange space at the top in portrait mode.
2. The other links either open the App Store or open website pages.
3. I have all your apps just open them when I click the app links take the time write the if then statement.
4. Silent night keeps playing even after you return to the library.
5. Looks like a decent piece of marketing but nothing more.
I was hoping for a app that actually consolidated my lifeline experience, maybe had a news feed or integrated twitter/FB posts. What you've made here is a unified collection of links. Maybe an update or two...
It's NOT an Ad it's awesome 5/5
I think it's really cool some people may say it's an ad but if you download it and you want to get two of the games at the same time it's way faster and I like it better then just buying it off the App Store. And my phone isn't filled with lifeline games just one whole library of them
THE ONLY GOOD THING 4/5
By TX 3758
The only good thing in this app is the free game the other option only send you to the app store to buy the game
Room for improvement 3/5
The idea of a library is great, and I don't mind the previews for new releases, but this lacks basic useful functionality.
1. Add some chronology. As a newbie, I want to play them in order.
2. If I already own it, don't take me to the store. Open the app or at least give me the option of which action to take.
Just a big ad 1/5
I already have half the lifeline games, and I thought this would help organize them and let me know which ones come next (because I want to play the rest in order, of course). Nope. This is not a library app at all, just an ad app. The third lifeline game (2nd in Taylor series) is featured prominently at the top as the free bonus (except I bought it last year) and if I hadn't known it was the second I would have been upset to play the stories out of order. Who likes getting the second installment of a story first? Total spoilers!
An interesting read 5/5
Mystery/horror lovers will love these text based games
I like the fact you get a continuation story from our very special Taylor. But overall the library has no usefulness, needs features and something unique. Or just a feature regardless.
Really engaging 4/5
I very much enjoy these. I do wish this version had Apple Watch support though.
It's good, but it needs an Apple Watch app 4/5
I think it's a really good idea to compile all of the Lifeline games in one app, making it more convenient for me to play. However, my one complaint would be the lack of an Apple Watch app for this app, as I mainly play lifeline on my watch. Developers, if you're reading this, I really love your series, but I would truly appreciate it if you created an Apple Watch app for this app that included all the games, making it more convenient for players. Thanks!
great game 5/5
Great games, really fun to pass the time with.
Lifeline 💕 5/5
These have always been my favorite apps, I'm so glad you decided to make a library one. Now I want have to delete the stories and re-download them all the time!!
I've been waiting for something like this and it's here!!! Lifeline story's are awesome, keep up the awesome work guys!
Love the storyline but... 3/5
I agree with a lot of the other reviewers-it would be great if the notifications and also the map worked when playing the free game Silent Night. I'm loving where the story is going, it has definitely got me hooked and impatiently waiting for more all the time.
One last thing, why isn't it showing that I have Whiteout? I received it as the App Store free app of the week, is that really going to keep it from showing up in my library? I also bought the original Lifeline some time ago and was that supposed to be showing up in my library as well?
Please fix these minute issues because I love this game and want to be able to give it the 5 stars I know it will deserve once the apps functionality catches up with the perfection that the storyline has already achieved.
Happy with free game and library idea, but format etc. could be better 3/5
By Clay Birds
The notifications aren't working. They worked for me on the whiteout game, but not with this library silent night game. :(
The layout of the game options isn't exactly as visually pleasing as I wish it could be.
It'd be nice if the game I'm working on came up when I opened the app, rather than having to tap into the game every time.
It would also be nice to have a notification in the app for the story that has an update (since the notifications aren't showing up outside the app.)
I just really want the notifications working. :/
I am very glad there is a free game on the app. It's nice so far. It appears to be a sequel game to the original lifeline game.
Also I got whiteout as the free app of the week and for some reason it's not in my library? It just takes me to the App Store, which is annoying. It would be nice to have a screen before going to the App Store, so you don't go there on accident.
It's a great idea, this app, as many have said, but could use a lot of graphics improvements etc. to be really quality.
I opened it thinking the lifeline games I already have on my phone might be opened through this library, nope, it just brings me to the App Store, for games I already own! Don't waste your memory space
Great games. 5/5
If you're getting into the lifeline series I definitely recommend Lifeline: Whiteout, because there is a fast mode and it's a very neat story and I WILL be playing Whiteout 2.
Muy bueno 5/5
Good But... 3/5
The app is good to see when games come out and I was excited to play Lifeline: Silent Night but when I played Silent Night, there was no map. It's not a big deal but it would be nice to see it. Also, when I clicked to get details to the upcoming game Lifeline: Whiteout 2 I got nothing😭 I hope the app can improve over time so it can be awesome but for now it's meh.
Why do you have to wait so long. Why can't you just play! The gameplay is fun but waiting is not.
0 stars 1/5
NOT A GAME
Love them! 5/5
I love the lifeline games, super fun and addicting and always a thriller mystery for me. Especially lifeline whiteout LOVED IT!
I don't completely understand it's purpose. I've already played or I'm in the middle of playing the apps in the library. And where is Flatline? Why isn't that in the library? That's what's really bugging my. Also can you release a continuation to Lifeline 2?
Great idea to combine the stories into one app. However, this was poorly executed. In general, the app does not feel well designed or user friendly. Additionally, playing the stories in-app does not compare to the standalone apps. Take Silent Night, for instance. The graphics are nowhere near the quality and crispness of the standalone app of the same name. There is no map available when played in the Library app. Worst of all, there is no way to set up notifications, so you just have to sit there and wait for the story to progress or check on it periodically. It makes gameplay far less fun.
Great just one problem... 5/5
The app is great and I love the free trial of "Silent Night" although I wish you had access to the map of the map in "Silent Night". I hope this can be fixed and thank you for the game/library
Almost there 3/5
By CJ SWARTZ
I think this app has potential to be a good hud for lifeline but just taking me to the app store doesnt really do much i think if it had descriptions and so on under the app and info about future games that are about to release (whiteout 2) but you have the right idea and i like the layout!
This game is so much more than a game I love it so much but sadly I can only play the free one hopefully they can make the games free so we can play them all
Really good 5/5
By Guido Antonini
When is it going to be released in Portuguese? These and others?
By 1hr Commuter
Being able to see all the lifeline apps in one place is nice. But the app only links you to the stories app in the App Store. I can essentially do the same thing by searching lifeline in the App Store. It would be nice if the library would open each story you have purchased directly.
ALMOST no reason to complain... 3/5
This app serves its purpose pretty efficiently, however notifications for the Silent Night game included are not functioning, which makes it pretty hard.
So shorttt 1/5
Wow this is just like 3 min long
