To sum up, Over the Alps is a fantastic game. It has a believable story, realistic characters, a great setting, several hundred different choices, multiple endings, a great balance between relaxing discovery and hard-pressed action, and emotional moments that make you feel. I cannot recommend this game enough for anyone that enjoys a good story, especially about spies and overcoming fascism.
Over the Alps is one to look out for, especially if gripping, immersive narrative adventures are your cup of tea. The writing, art style and sound direction crossed with the simplicity of its design make for an experience that's more calming than anything else. Over the Alps is more interactive than a book or a movie, but much less challenging than a platformer, making for gameplay that can suit all ability levels. The only drawback is the lack of replayability, but we think the fantastic adventure offered by the initial playthrough more than compensates for that.
No es simplemente que tengamos juegos inteligentemente pulidos. Es que en móviles y en tabletas encontramos juegos llenos de ideas y con sólidas intenciones autorales que se distancian del ruido que en muchas ocasiones produce lo mainstrean. Over the Alps es exactamente lo que quiere ser. Subvierte (y muy bien) solo hasta donde le apetece. Y además de todo esto es sencillo. Una experiencia que, potencialmente, podríamos disfrutar todos.
