To The City of the Clouds Indie Game Review

The moment I heard the title To The City of The Clouds I thought of Star Wars (Cloud City). . . well, I was wrong. To The City in the Clouds is Choice Of Games’ new title in which you play as an archaeologist who has heard word of a lost Incan city. The game is available for free on iOS and Android, but is it worthy of your time?

Like many other Choice of Games’ titles, you get to pick the gender of your hero in To The city of the Clouds. Once you choose your gender you’ll be introduced to the games romantic story, though the romance is a little thin it must be said.

As you play through the game you’ll get to make many important choices that determine the development of your character and story. While the romantic side of title lacks all finesse, the politics between characters and the many humorous moments of the game do well to make amends. another fantastic element of the story is the detail of imagery. You really do find yourself immersed in the game’s environments.

Probably the most annoying part of the game is the inability to save halfway though. You’ll play for hours then realise that, oops, you can’t save and either have to quit or keep on grinding on. This is such a basic flaw that it is somewhat unforgiveable and it definitely does have a negative affect no the experience.

So, what are we left with? To The City of the Clouds is a well written story with humour and solid character development, even if it is lacking in the romantic compartment. It’s not perfect, but it is entertaining, and given that its free… well, is there any reason not to play it?
