    This is one of the few free app store games that I genuinely feel should be paid for. The amount of effort and heart this little and short game has trumps the majority of other unoriginal content on the app store. The story is very well written and I loved the dialogue. Even if it was just translated from Japanese to English, it didn’t lose its meaning and sounded very smooth and casual. There were times where I laughed at the wackier moments, but most of the time, the environment and atmosphere alone were able to move me to tears. It really does bring back a sense of nostalgia to a time gone by, which is amazing, considering that the game is set somewhere unfamiliar to most international players. And to add, going through the game and realizing the internal struggles of each of the characters, you really can’t help but to wish for their happiness. I ended up getting overly attached to each of the kids and really, I hope more people could learn from them. Overall, I highly recommend you to get this game, the ads aren’t very obstructive, and there are a few bugs, but they didn’t bother me too much. I’ve also recommended this game to all my other friends looking for a game suggestion. It’s just that good. And if you’re wondering, yes, the ending was definitely worth it; all endings were satisfying in their own way.

    This is one of the greatest games that I've ever played. The story is amazing and has so much thought put into it. I hope this game gets a chance at an anime in the near future. I recomend getting the V.I.P mode it does give the game a much better experience. If you have not gotten it already this should help you decide.

    I don’t write reviews often, but this game’s been getting so little traction that I thought I might as well. If you can’t tell from the screenshots, this is a visual-novel style game where you move a voxel boy around a small Japanese town and solve various mysteries. Aside from walking around and talking to people, there’s no gameplay to speak of. If that turns you off, this game probably isn’t for you. Personally, I’m into this kind of game, and the story (while short) was enough to keep me engaged, and yes, made me actually feel something. It took me about a day and a half, playing off and on, to beat it, but YMMV. I would not recommend playing with ads. Every couple of minutes, something’s going to pop up. Additionally, after each chapter, you’re going to be required to watch a few 30 second ads to progress to the next one. Given that there are 16 chapters and each is really short, this becomes a constant interruption. This is removed with the IAP—if I were to replay this, I’d recommend it.

    I love story type games like “7 years from now” which really made me get into them. But since then, I never really found any good games that could compare to it. Some had terrible plot lines and endings, too much ads, terrible graphics, etc. But this one was very different. I preordered it, because the graphics looked very cute and the title seemed interesting. And the game itself was not disappointing whatsoever. The graphics were very cute and matched each timeline very well. The story itself was very bittersweet and predictable but at the same time had so many unpredictable twists. You also get to actually play the game by finding unique items from the “80’s” and talking to side characters and finding coins and much more instead of just reading chat lines. One downside is that it does take up your battery a lot but you can change that by turning your graphics down. No payment required with some ads showing up a few times. The story itself is also very long too and not just some 10 minute story game. In the end definitely recommend.

    Another must play game from gagex with a beautiful anime style mysterious, emotional and bittersweet storyline, a variety of relatable characters with their own complications, relaxing bgm, great controls, delightful art and this time, two lovable kids added to the mix. The only downside is the coins to collect. But even that is pretty easy, and gives us a chance to explore the town full of the 7 mysteries.
