Florence for Positive User Reviews

Beautiful and not the classic ending you imagine...This game is visually appealing with a very cute and simplistic look at it. The puzzles are adorable and unlike I have seen in any other game. I love how the ending isn’t one that most would want as the ‘happy ending’ to the game. But this just shows that sometimes what we once wanted isn’t our happy ending, this is also shown when music doesn’t work out for Krish. I love this game and can’t recommend it enough.Version: 1.0.3

Cinematic Dream in FlorenceMy newest addition is Florence! From the creators of Monument Valley, Florence is such a beautifully designed interactive application for designers, artists, musicians (the instrumental pieces are on point- you can download the album separately), and the like. The story-telling is unbelievably fun with human markers of a roller coaster ride of human daily struggle and happiness. As a short cinematic, visual representation of a story about a woman named Florence going about her life, this interactive piece of a story comes with no dialogue - to demonstrate this with just images and sound, I am in awe of the work! It shows that you do not need a game that is continuously long or never-ending; sometimes all you need is short game to get you thru your day..Version: 1.0.3

Loved itWhat a sweet game about the human condition, well worth the price of entry.Version: 1.0.1

Wonderful whilst it lastsFlorence is set out as an interactive graphic novel which uses small pieces of gameplay to tell the story rather than words. Some of it is very clever which I won’t spoil here. Some may ask whether £2 for half an hours gameplay is worth it, but you are effectively buying a book rather than a game and you will play is again and again just to reexperience the story..Version: 1.0.3

Nice interactive graphic novelIt was like reading a comic book, with music and some interactions. There is very little text but the visual speaks clearly. I was very moved by the story and loved how hopeful it was. The drawings and colours are beautiful. It was quite short but a lovely experience..Version: 1.0.5

Short but really, really worth it.Love all the grumpy comments about spending £2.99 for *just* 45 mins of world-class content. I spend more than that for just one pint - and that certainly doesn’t last 40 minutes. This is a beautiful piece of interactive storytelling. An experience both visually and musically. It’s not a cookie-cutter “game”. It’s an exercise in craft and sensitivity and well worth a few quid..Version: 1.0

An Emotionally Resonant Interactive NarrativePublisher Annapurna has released several masterful games this year. From the offbeat humor of Donut County to the innovative beauty of Gorgoa, this publisher has gone out of its way to prove that phones can be a viable platform for interactive art. While those two titles are also playable on a PC, Florence is a game that works only on phones. It’s use of simple touchscreen puzzles as a metaphor for the stages in a failed relationship is brilliant. There is nothing new about the story told in Florence, but its universal themes of drifting apart with loved ones, finding solace in friends and family, and growing from even negative experiences, are effectively conveyed. Florence is only about half an hour long, but it’s breathtaking score, painterly artwork, and affecting tale combine to make it not only well worth the asking price, but one of the best games on the App Store. Bravo..Version: 1.0.4

Adorable and enjoyableDefinitely more of an interactive graphic novel/manga/light novel than an actual game-game, so if you’re looking for gaming you’re in the wrong place. If you’re looking for a sweet, heartfelt enjoyable exploration of a time capsule moment in a life, then you’re going to enjoy this just as much as I did, which was a lot 😁.Version: 1.0.5

Not enoughIt’s hard to call this app a game - this is a story and truly beautiful art. The music is wonderful, the style is unique, but, unfortunately, the story was way too short. Developers didn’t show the “love” of characters, why they fall in love, how they lived together. It’s just ******SPOILER******** they met, he moved to her place, they fight, he left. I would recommend to work on the story, to create more story, more things “Why they are together.Version: 1.0

Emotional!!!I rarely cry and pride myself on that. This app did not take long at all to run through, but it jerked at my heart! Every time I had to close the box up... I had such a hard time doing it. I cried and fell in love with the main character, Florence. This is what relationships are like in the real world and it’s nice to see something portrayed so accurately. [SPOILER ALERT: Not all relationships work out perfectly like Hallmark channel but nonetheless they’re still beautiful and part of shaping who we are] In conclusion, this app is very thought-provoking and really helps you to connect with others’ emotions. Well worth it!.Version: 1.0.5

Incredible.Florence offers an incredibly poignant and surprisingly realistic approach to relationships in contemporary life. It involves you emotionally, this emotional link to the characters creates a level of empathy with them I have not experienced before. You act as matchmaker within the relationship and I believe this game is for everyone. Especially those hopeless romantics like me..Version: 1.0.2

The most emotionally distressing 5$ I've ever spentThe story is beautiful and simple, yet game play details make you feel and empathize woth the protagonist. Imusiv and illistrations are beautiful. Higly recommended..Version: 1.0.5

Love itUnderstandably, paying for games can be irritating and can be found as pointless after download, just not this one. The detail is amazing and it is evident just how much work has been put into the app. Although it is short, I still really enjoyed it and loved the small, yet meaningful interactions throughout the game. I 100% recommend this to anybody as it takes you on an interesting journey that is sure to be captivating for many people❤️I absolutely loved this game and it was definitely worth the money..Version: 1.0.4

Resonant and Wonderful!This was an absolutely beautiful experience. The music and the artwork are splendid, and they both work together with the story to strike an emotional chord. I love the way that this app explores the way individuals have an effect on our lives, even if they are only there for a short time. Having gone through a spell of having to find myself post-breakup, I found myself tearing up at how poignantly this aspect of relationships is explored in ‘Florence.’ Though it is a little short (~1 hour), I truly think this is a perfect experience, and one very much worth your money and time..Version: 1.0

Beautiful. Smart. All Heart.I absolutely loved this story and the art is perfect! Not that I would call it a puzzle game but some of the ways you progress are so clever and give you such a moment of wonder that I am now recommending this to everyone I talk to! Thank you for this wonderful piece of art..Version: 1.0.1

This was beautiful, moving storytellingI was really impressed by how they told such a compelling engaging story in this medium- relying primarily on interactive visuals. It was such creative visual storytelling and a joy to experience this whole arc in florence's life. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The story's format and the tools they used to tell it was really impressive to me because of the skillfulness and partially because it's a novel format. Apps that tell stories artistically are fairly new to me, and fairly new in general! This app did a wonderful job. it seems like a really lovely way to explore a character-focused piece, which I love. it takes creativity to devise methods of communicating the highs and lows in such a clear and precise way... I loved it and thanks to the people who worked on it :-) To everyone else: I definitely recommend giving it a shot and supporting it if you can. the story itself explores heartbreak but is also very encouraging. 🌱🌿 The music and art and interactive elements all throughout worked together so beautifully..Version: 1.0.1

I’m gonna cry so good 😊 sooooo good reallyI have. Never played such a good game in my entire life really price worth it completely I have been waiting for that so meaningful and beautiful thank you so much creator so happy just needs more chapters like infinite so good thanks love your amazing work completely.Version: 1.0.5

*very* short but beautifulA totally unique approach to mobile storytelling. Wonderful use of simple interactions convey subtle emotions and the story is just a joy to experience. The story itself isn't unique - but I suppose the joy is in the telling and experiencing. Be aware it is *very* short, but definitely still worth your time..Version: 1.0

PhonomenalFor such a simple mobile game, this was the most thought provoking and emotional I've been in a while. I was fully immersed in the story the whole way through. The art was so good and the soundtrack was on point. Well done to the developers. Loved every second of it.Version: 1.0.5

Short and very sweetIts about learning to move on from a relationship and use what you learned to better your life. It has some VERY cool twists to the puzzles they do.Version: 1.0.5

It’s amazingFlorence is an amazing game that tells a very heart warming story even though it has a short length the game will make you feel all kind of emotions while playing this game shows what phone games are capable of being that instead of just addicting ad filled games this one tells a good story now I will warn you it has a short length I beat it in about 30 minutes but it’s still fantastic and I hope this game gets a Pc port so it can more wider audience may check it out I give this a solid 9/10 it’s really good and I can’t to see what else this team develops in the future.Version: 1.0.5

You can feel the love that went into this game <3When I started playing I could instantly feel the finger prints of Melbourne! This game isn’t set in some generic tv land city and thats only the beginning of how real and honest this game is. At its soft centre it’s a love story about a girl and a boy and how their meeting changes the path of there lives. The ending is beautiful. I wouldn’t dare asked for a sequel since it’s so perfect but if there was a part 2 I would be the first to download it in heartbeat! ALSO LOVE THE CATS NAME!! Great work devs!.Version: 1.0.1

Absolutely wonderfulBeautifully done.Version: 1.0.5

A Wonderful Little ExperienceDo yourself a favor and don’t pass up this game. Florence was one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences I’ve had in quite some time. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Florence a work of art. The music is just so pleasant to the ears. I spent extra time in each Chapter of the game listening to the music. The visual style is ever so charming. And the story is one that just grabs you by the heart. It definitely made me feel something that most games don’t, and it is relatable. Florence is a gem. I hope more and more people check this game out because it deserves any praise it is given..Version: 1.0.5

Definitely more of a book than a gameWhen my husband asked me, “What’s that?” I described it as an interactive graphic novel and I think that’s pretty accurate. Expensive for a game with no replayability, but not for what it is: an interactive graphic novel that I will (and have) re-read. Loved it; I hope to see more from this designer..Version: 1.0.3

Amazing. Emotive.After hearing GiantBomb’s Vinny Caravella talk about this during their game of the year deliberations I had to try this. A short but very relatable experience that guides you through its story through music and visuals. Thank you for creating and sharing this. I want also pleasantly surprised to see a familiar face in the mountains team!.Version: 1.0.4

Lovely experienceThis was great! Beautiful story, lovely art, and moving music. I highly recommend you buy it! My only complaint is that is it very short, between 30-60 minutes, which made the price feel a too high. But, even in saying that I highly recommend this to everyone..Version: 1.0.1

FlorenceAmazing little story about live. Can’t wait to play the next one.Version: 1.0.5

Innovating Visual NovelsI loved Florence for so many reasons!! As an artist, as a storyteller, as both a comics and games fan— the amount of care and precision shone through in every way for this game! With so little dialogue, the gameplay carried the story in personal ways that words couldn’t. The colors, the art, the music, the characters— all wonderfully built and beautifully presented. I especially loved the way visual novels and gaming were integrated to further the storytelling— dialogue getting easier as you grow familiar, literally “pushing” each other, and understanding change as a series of puzzles the player must solve for themselves to proceed. It was a wonderful way to read through a story, and my only complaint was that it was so short. I hope to see more projects for the future!.Version: 1.0.3

I loved itIt was a beautiful story..Version: 1.0.5

A beautiful gameIt captures the raw feelings of love and relationships, as well as showing the difficult realities that are associated with routines, everyday life and the difficulties that come with relationships. It is worth the money and I cannot recommend this game enough. I insist you miss your morning coffee and instead substitute the cost to buy and and play this amazing experience with its well crafted visual design and beautiful soundtrack this game is sure to give you a pleasurable and thought provoking experience that will play with your emotions..Version: 1.0.1

Emotional, to say the least!Honestly the reason I clicked buy on this app was purely for the art style, the previews looked incredible so I took the plunge. The music was just as impressive, giving the game a very casual but polished aesthetic. I was able to finish the game within my lunch hour, but I believe this is more of a short interactive film, rather than a game. The games puzzles are a fresh take on metaphors, with each round of the speech bubbles adding new emotions into the mix with subtle differences. Very well produced, with a realistic storyline filled with different emotions. Definitely worth the experience if you want to feel something..Version: 1.0.3

A great story, a ok gameI enjoyed the story and a lot of the way it was told was lovely and unique. I just wish the game had better UI, if the game had flowed naturally with out the constant prompts, arrows, etc I would have appreciated it more. Everyone should play it because this is part of a future of interactive storytelling but they need to make it feel more initiative to play and sometimes that means not rushing the player with a prompt, which just frustrated me. Incredible animation too and I enjoyed the music a lot too, although it was a little frustrating to hear a song for a scene and that scene last 5-10 seconds and then a new bit of music for 5-10 seconds. Really feel like this game was on the cusp of greatness and it gets a lot of props because of the way it innovated, a few tweaks and it would be perfect..Version: 1.0.4

Thoughtful Labor of LoveAmazing game, short but sweet. The interactions are each unique and ties in with the story and themes, super original. When I first suspected this was set it Melbourne I literally screamed!! Melbourne never gets any representation it's always American cities and England, very cool as I recognised some of the places they went to! Did some research about the devs that made this game, they're a Melbourne based team and this is their FIRST GAME! But it's still so good, a must play and a steal for $5..Version: 1.0.5

Loved it!!I absolutely loved the fresh style this game has, I’ve never played anything like it. The music is amazing and made me feel the exact emotions as Florence. The art style is beautiful and honestly I just wish it was longer and had a few more options but other than that it was fab!.Version: 1.0

Most amazing game ever!!!!Most apps and games ask for ratings, but in this game, I guess I will never know that is it gonna ask or not because I just finished the first act and came straight to give it a 5-star rating and review. Amazing artwork, amazing storyline, amazing game. Thank you for making such a game..Version: 1.0.5

You'll have never played anything like this!Incredulous proof that video games can be art. This game told a painfully down to earth story in a way that kept me engaged and attached the characters. I couldn't drag myself away. I pray for more stories and works of art from the developers!.Version: 1.0.3

It’s an experienceThis is not a game, but an interactive story. It’s endearing and charming, but frankly there is almost nothing to do and there are is nothing challenging about it whatsoever. It’s just a story told through this medium and it’s a good one of those..Version: 1.0.5

Love this game!!! Bees kneesI absolutely love this game! I’ve been waiting for it since it was advertised that it was coming out. I understand why it’s short so the story isn’t butchered though I do wish it was longer though that isn’t a negative. The animation, production & music is great! Hope to find more unique & similar games from the makers!! Love, love, love!!.Version: 1.0.1

I criedAlright I’m not ashamed to admit that I cried. First, I was intrigued by the cute story, and the beautiful artwork. Then I was touched by the music, and the budding relationship. I cried some happy tears when things were great, and I cried some sad tears when it all went downhill. I also loved the symbolism of the speech bubbles, and how the easier the puzzle, the easier the words came to the person’s mouth. How things seemed difficult and awkward on the first dates, but conversation got easier and easier. But on the flip side, with the arguments, it seemed to get easier and easier for the characters to say the hurtful words. Excellent, I wish I could rate it 6/5 stars and it is worth your money!.Version: 1.0.5

Simple and SweetThis endeavor by the makers of Monument did not disappoint me. They executed a clean design with easily understood mechanics. The story was simple but impactful due to a well-traced arc that follows a coming-of-age experience about young love. As a classical violin player, the beautiful score wasn’t expected, but certainly welcome—it added incredible depth to the images on screen. This game would not have been the same without it. The gameplay takes half and hour or so, but it engages in the things I wish more video games would—human identity, interaction, and experience. I’ve already made all my close relations play it, gamer or no. They’ve all loved it and found themselves surprisingly invested in the same way I was. This game, in short, is a gem..Version: 1.0.1

Beautiful and unique in every wayA moving depiction of a modern relationship, told with some very interesting and unique storytelling and gameplay elements that really put you in the middle of this young couple’s lives. Every little interaction is deliberate, fits the story perfectly and is often a metaphor for something deeper that one grasps by doing it. I truly commend this team for having the guts to release something like this - there will no doubt be a million complaints about game length for price, as there were over Monument Valley, but for me, I’d rather play this half hour of originality and thoughtfulness than 10+ hours of repetitiveness..Version: 1.0.3

An interesting game which reaches for greatness and kinda nearly gets thereFlorence is visual novel slice-of-life about a 25 year old woman stuck in a humdrum job who’s forgotten her dreams. She has a meet cute with musician Krish and romance ensues. The challenge with this type of game is always for the developer to show rather than tell - to give us the story through the gameplay. Florence does this quite well, although it’s let down by the mini games becoming a little tiresome at times (the speech bubble puzzles in particular, where repetition dilutes impact). At just 20 - 30 minutes in length, these shortcomings are forgivable however. The story is either twee or endearing depending on your personal appetite for this type of thing, but the graphics and animation are beautiful throughout. Well worth £2.99 and a small amount of your time if you have any interest in visual novels and narrative gaming (or even if you don’t, but do like cute romantic comics)..Version: 1.0.4

RevolutionaryThis is the most beautiful game that I've ever played. Not only the concept of story telling with bite size game pieces revolutionary. This is the most engaged I've ever been on anything, on my mobile. Just love it.Version: 1.0.1

Why hello there, Melbourne (and tumultuous first love)What an absolutely beautiful game. If you’re looking for any depth of gameplay, look elsewhere. You won’t find it here. You will however, find that heady first love. You know the one? The one where you fall madly in love with their passions, then them. And then learn about them: and learn how to play the game, to boot! It’s all learning, and the elements all work so well. So if you’re after a quick, succinct story with a dash of learning, look no further! And trust me: it may seem steep to pay for something that won’t take long to complete, might I suggest savouring it instead? Though, I could hardly blame you if you chose to race through it instead :).Version: 1.0.1

Love is easyI hope to get more chapters!.Version: 1.0.3

What a wonderful experienceWhen games are great it’s because of the way they make you feel, because the mechanics of the game support that feeling and because it takes you on a journey you could t have on another medium. This is, therefore, one of the best games I’ve ever played. It made me smile and it made me feel like weeping and it did so in a way only a mobile game could. It isn’t the kind of game you play in 5minute bursts between other things, and it’s not a “challenge” or a puzzle; it’s something to sit down and properly enjoy- let it take you on a journey for a while, you won’t be disappointed..Version: 1.0.5

IncredibleI don’t often leave reviews but man this game is amazing. It doesn’t really feel like a game, more of a story of someone’s life. The interactions make it fun and the visuals are beautiful. Plus the soundtrack is spot on! Developers need to think outside of the box more often and create unique experiences like this.Version: 1.0.5

Unique storytelling experienceReally pretty art & animation, nice music, and some clever storytelling ideas. This game is a well-designed interactive narrative, playing to the strengths of mobile/touch. Haptic feedback is really well implemented too! The story isn’t anything unique, but the game showcases how interactivity can add a whole other layer of depth to the narrative. It’s definitely experimental, and I’m not sure if it nailed everything it was going for. But there were some fantastic parts to this game..Version: 1.0.4

An intensely moving, gorgeous, and altogether unexpected delightFlorence is unlike anything I’ve ever played or experienced on a gaming platform. It is an innovative combination of graphics, storytelling, and ingenious use of the touch screen platform to poignantly and powerfully illustrate the nuances of the emotional journey people go through in relationships and the subsequent navigation of them. The music is absolutely gorgeous and the interactivity is a spot on brilliant combination of simple touch and profound illustration of the emotional highs and lows that go along with life from the perspective of its title character. I would give this game 10 stars if I could - I only wish it would be a longer storyline. I’m eager to see what comes next - bravo, team Annapurna..Version: 1.0.3

<\3Short and not entirely sweet. very worth playing.Version: 1.0.4

A perfect little gameA little bit drunk on a Friday night I bought this game after hearing nothing but praise for it. What feels it has given me. It articulates the human experience of love so well that I could almost cry after playing it for the hour it asked of me. Absolutely fantastic. Well done and thank you..Version: 1.0.1

Beautiful and engagingThe best way of looking at this game is an interactive graphic novel. It’s beautifully designed and shouldn’t be rushed through. It is quite short, but I feel well worth the money. I’d happily go back through at some point. The interactions are clever and help convey meaning for each scene. Definitely worth a look!.Version: 1.0.1

WowI follow a lot of artists on Twitter and they had picked up on this game, saying how creative and good it was, so I thought I would give it a try. Every review of it so far has basically said it’s amazing, but they just wish it was longer.... and I couldn’t agree more. This little interactive game is so simple, yet so inventive the way you get to interact with/as Florence. The artwork was beautiful, I loved the style, and the storyline was superb- I felt that breakup with every fiber in my being! (Yes, I’ll admit I may have shed a couple of tears... it was just so real!) Anyway, I don’t usually leave reviews on stuff but this game was just so wholesome and good and ended on a positive note, which I appreciated. Worth the small fee to play it- trust me, you’ll agree after you’ve finished it too!.Version: 1.0.1

Amazing gameThis game is soo good! It is sooo relaxing and calming! I think the story could be set a little better… The illustration is fantastic! And there are no ads whatsoever! I think if anyone wants to buy this game then they should! Definitely! Thank you for making this amazing game!.Version: 1.0.5

Amazing Game!This is an outstanding game and it has so much to offer. It is moving and pulls at your heart strings. It portrays life and love and send a message of moving forward and making the best of things. Many people are saying that it is too short and not worth the money, but I disagree. It was fairly priced, as it is an incredible story. 0.99 cents is not overpriced. I would say it is a little bit short and maybe should be updates to show how the boy is doing or to see what happens to the girl; if she gets a new boyfriend or something, and things like that, but overall it was a very impressive game..Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful.I’m in love with Florence. Her optimism, her joy fullness, and her life story. She starts off as a young girl dreaming of art. Her mother thinks she should stick to schoolwork but she prefers art. She grows up to be a teenager. She realizes it’s not all playing pretend anymore. She grows up and starts working. She isn’t happy with her choice. She meets a man who inspires her to fulfill her dreams, and she does the same to him. They go through a rough patch & break up. The end- she gets over him. But couldn’t you add more? I finished this story in less than 20 minutes. Not saying it’s a bad thing but now I have no use for the app. I spent money on an app I would only use for 20 minutes. I want more. Do they get back together? Does she become a grandma and die of old age? Do her grandkids and kids give her a rough time? Does she fulfill her artists career to its full?.Version: 1.0.3

Stress reliever!!!At first I couldn’t figure out how to play this, even when the little clues would pop up. But once I figured it out.... (which by then my anxiety was a thing of the past because my mind was somewhere else)...I then continued playing this game and figuring out what each life scenario will be. Whether it’s changing jobs and packing up your personal things from on top your desk into a box or having a new LOVE and packing your apartment up with items to take it to his apartment and then unpacking to put the items from the box and placing them on his tv stand or whatever. I really do like this app. It really is a relaxing game with a handful of chapters to go through. I think mine just ended with no more chapters to play I’m not sure yet I’ll find out. Oryou can just start again. Only thing is I believe you will be starting the same game & doing the same thing. I’ll try and write another review after I find out..Version: 1.0.5

Makes you feel emotionsThis game makes you feel so many different emotions. It makes you feel sad happy anger and a lot of other. I recommend this game. But also once you have finished the game you can play it again but it can get boating after a while..Version: 1.0.5

Absolutely beautifulIf you want to be hit in your feelings this is an absolutely beautiful tale. Stunning artwork and story, easy gameplay and overall a wonderful app. I am amazed and touched. Would 100% recommend to anyone wanting a little slice of life to put a little bit of your own life into..Version: 1.0.5

GorgeousShort but very sweet. Beautiful music and artistry!.Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful gameReally cleve use of interaction to convey emotion of the characters and beautiful animation and music!! Well done.Version: 1.0.3

Made me feel betterI’ve been in a hole for the past 3 days this helped get me cheer up a little. It also motivated me to draw something, I’ve really missed drawing..Version: 1.0.5

EmotionalIt might be a short game but it does a really good job of making you think about life and relationships through a few simple minigames and the story being told like a comic. I kind of wish the choices you made mattered and effected the end but even so it's a great game. Highly recommend..Version: 1.0.3

Almost perfect!Great concept. Loved the art style, the simplicity of the story but the way that they can take such a simple concept and bring out its deeper meaning from subtle gameplay inputs was really profound. My only criticism is that the price is too much for how short it is. Literally took me only 20 mins to get through it all. $5 for that amount is too much. I’ve bought $1 games that have lasted me longer before. Reduce the price or update it with other stories over time and I’d feel like I’d gotten my money’s worth..Version: 1.0.5

Almost PerfectI love story driven games, and the way the story progresses through little puzzles is really clever... The entire story could have been told without a single word. It’s always refreshing to play such original games and I’m glad there are still developers out there willing to take a risk and try something new. Only reason I haven’t given it 5 stars is because it ended waaay to soon and felt a bit more like a really well done proof of concept as opposed to a full game. That being said, I’d rather be left wanting for more than wanting to stop before it ends. Thanks for a great experience..Version: 1.0.4

FastasticA sweet story with brilliant interactivity..Version: 1.0.5

Unique and thought provoking...I honestly wasn’t sure what I would think of this as it is far removed from my usual type of game. It isn’t really a game, but an incredibly thoughtful, well made, emotional and realistic story of love and life. I enjoyed every minute of it. It’s short but it didn’t need to be any longer. It really did stir emotions and was very thoughtful, cleverly made and utterly unique..Version: 1.0.5

I couldn’t love this moreThis game/app/story/beautiful thing oozes creativity and thought and attention to detail. If you want the App Store to have beautiful apps and games that their creators are proud of, rather than just disposable dross, I think you should support developers like this by buying their app..Version: 1.0

I’m Destroyed I mean in a good way :,)This game takes you on the path of the crazy feeling you get when you fall for someone. Each element is perfectly thought out to the point of being heartbreaking. You might want to capture the beautiful artwork in screenshots or wish you could screenshot the relationship. It’s not a easy ride and you get so many fuzzy feeling it’s hard to accept the reality. you really wish you could go back. As we all do at that time. It’s a beautiful story crafted by amazing story telling and artwork. I would play it again but I might start sobbing..Version: 1.0.5

Very creative!I think the story is cute but not interesting enough. The ending was not satisfying. If the story is more interesting this game would be a 5 star. Still is a very creative and beautiful game!.Version: 1.0.1

One of 2018’s best iOS offeringsFlorence’s clever and varied mechanics are integrated into a well-told, and ‘real’, story in a great way. While a bit on the short side, you wouldn’t want it to be longer - it says what it wants to say, and gets out just before you’re feeling done with it. A really modern way to tell a tale as old as time itself - love and heartbreak - while remembering to add on the importance of moving on, Florence shouldn’t be missed..Version: 1.0.4

Very shortOverall, I really really enjoyed the game. It was a wonderful story, and the music was the best music I’ve ever seen in a game since Minecraft. Being a musician myself, I really enjoyed the soundtrack but how they flowed from chapter to chapter was a little rough. The plot overall was superb, however the game was very very short. I played through it in maybe an hour. When I was deciding on wether to purchase the game, I thought it was an RPG (role playing game), however the game only has one ending, and isn’t very interactive. It would make a really great book or movie, but as a game it isn’t very interactive at all. I’d rate it 3.5 out of 5 stars..Version: 1.0.3

FlorenceThis was a very good game for me to play. It was very entertaing.☺️☺️☺️.Version: 1.0.5

What a beautiful piece of art.Just really lovely. Highly recommended..Version: 1.0.1

A brief but great game.I was recommended this for part of my writing course and I I’m glad I was. The game perfectly balanced story vs gameplay, and the way it abstract-ifies day to day life into various mechanics/mini games was really enjoyable to play and felt rewarding. The story itself was simple while not losing out in complexity. It switched from telling its story in beats to complex narratives so fast in only releasing it changed around as I wrote this..Version: 1.0.5

Great jobDidn’t want it to end. Nice story!.Version: 1.0.5

Sometimes I just want to watch a sceneI could move on but I don’t have to. I can take my time. Perhaps that says something about me. This beautiful story has grabbed at my 57 year old grumpy heart and made me feel 30 years younger. More than an App, it is a work of art. Thank you..Version: 1.0.4

Beautiful but not really a gameI really enjoyed the animation and the music on this app. Had a real independent movie feel about it, perfect for a snowy Sunday afternoon on the sofa. The only thing I would fault with this is its a set story so even though you’re completing ‘interactive’ tasks, you have no influence over the story. It would have been nice to have multiple story lines and your choices made through the app influenced the final ending..Version: 1.0.1

Values the simplicity of lifeEven though life may seem unpredictable so many times, it’s how you choose to live through the moments that really makes it count. And this game perfectly pointed out this lesson. It was when Florence chose to go with the unexpected, outside her comfort zone, that she grew the most and life, slowly but surely, blossomed with opportunities and new experiences. I would say that *despite* the game being a lot shorter than expected, it is surely worth the investment of $3. I’m certain that you will be left with a good reflection in mind even once the game is done. Congrats to the creators and their different, genius and subtle proposal for an interactive game!.Version: 1.0.2

BeautifulThe detail and emotion in which this story brings out is what makes this app spectacular. From the music, the design and the characters, this had me crying of joy and sadness from beginning to end. We need more apps like this. Also , just from the styling and design, I could tell this was based in the stunning city of Melbourne. Truly superb!.Version: 1.0.3

Inspirational, breath taking and creativeAlthough simple, the story was very relatable. We experience so many different emotions in this short story and we also learn so much out of it. The music was brilliant, Kevin Penkin is a prodigy. The music matched the minimalistic style of the art, yet, it was playful and expressive..Version: 1.0.5

Made me cryGreat game for everyone.Version: 1.0.5

12am wonderBeing a art lover this was so fun to play and yellow being my favourite colour and that being a stand out, made the game more fun. The moment after their fight and you couldn’t put the pieces together, I actually started to cry. This was a wonderful experience from my bed at 12am in the morning. Thank you.Version: 1.0.1

DifferentI’ll admit I went through this story fast as I was impatient then around midway I slightly regretted it...Florence is a beautiful story well told and I absolutely love the hands on aspect; you get a slight glimmer of her life as though she is a real person you know. It’s basically a story of a girl who falls in love then learns how to move on and fall in love again except when she falls in love again, it’s with herself. It a good reminder to what matters most in life. Amazing character development for all the characters in the story. Looking forward to more stories from this developer! Also if you’re worried about spending money remember that the ‘free’ games really aren’t free whereas this one you get and pay what you see. Honestly the best money I’ve spent on a mobile game ♥️.Version: 1.0.5

It really IS worth itAs someone who is currently studying game design, I wholeheartedly recommend Florence. And while I do not agree with the lower ratings it receives, I do understand their complaints. And yes, as a game, it’s not very interesting. You have to have the mindset of a visual novel or interactive narrative. Having you take part in the story and interact with visual representations of their relationship is really powerful and emotional. There’s a part where I literally said out loud “No!!” And it made my roommate wonder if I was okay or not (poor guy, I think I scared the crap out of him). But in terms of price, this potentially costs as much or even less than the coffee you get at Starbucks or wherever. And here, I’d say your getting more for what your paying, no matter how short it is..Version: 1.0.1

Very artistic yet very shortThe game is really good. The overall atmosphere is very relaxing and touching. The sound tracks are AMAZING. I personally wouldn’t mind even paying the price for just listening to the sound track. However, I still find the game mechanics a bit “silly” sometimes and the game itself is very short, but I expected it to be even before buying so I wasn’t disappointed as much as others. It’s just with this kind of game “no talking, relaxing, ... “ it’s all about the experience and it can’t go on for too long because it would be honestly boring, so I understand why the developers chose to make it such a short game..Version: 1.0.3

Deserves some creditThe experience was a healthy attempt at something new and different. The story was relatable (I even look a little like Florence!) and I felt that the finished product was something from the heart. The music is really very beautiful to me— the richest part of the game. Big compliments there!! To be honest, I just wasn’t able to get as emotionally involved in the story as I would have liked— Despite evident thoughtfulness on the part of the makers, I still felt that many of the ways I was asked to interact were not enough to close the gap between myself and the story. The game play may have lacked certain nuances, but I think it’s a necessary step in the process of making something better next time... all in all I’d spend the money again if for no other reason than to support the continued growth of the idea and the people behind it. The game struck me as very sincere, made with warmth and honesty. We should want the media we consume to come from places as kind as these..Version: 1.0.5

Worth Every Penny and I wish more works of art existed like thisI absolutely adored this game. It had beautiful artistry, the puzzles were very poetic to each part of the story. Overall the feeling the game gives you is amazing. Every bit of frustration or misunderstanding is intentional to cause an emotion. Only Cons: I wish there was a little more player choice. I liked the touches where what we created ended up in certain parts but I wish there were multiple endings. Also, the translations from mandarin were a little off. Just by a bit. For example, there was a part where there were three sentences in mandarine and there translations a little brisk if I do say so myself. It’s such a little tick but being someone who is fluent enough to read most of it just made me do a little double take..Version: 1.0.3

Absolutely beautifulEverything about this is worth it. The way the music, the story and the mechanics work together is absolutely beautiful. Never have I played a game where the mechanics had such an impact as this. I know everyone who worked on this will go on to do great things. The story is fantastic and inspiring and it makes me want to get up and write. Thank you for your amazing work! Edit: I noticed some one star reviews so took a wee look at them. This game is short and all about telling the story so if you are a person who barrels through life without smelling the roses you will not enjoy this game. If you can stop and savour each chapter for a while you’ll find it wonderful..Version: 1.0.5

WonderfulI can’t recommend this game enough, it’s sort of a point click with lots of adorable interactive elements. The art style is gorgeous and the story is beautifully told. It’s pretty short but definitely worth the price. I loved it and will be keeping an eye out for more from this publisher..Version: 1.0.4

I love this game!A touching story that I relate hugely to. It is fairly brief to play through yet it masterfully demands your attention and your emotional investment. I’m writing after my third go through and I’ve cried every time. The butterfly at the end is truly an ingenious detail..Version: 1.0.3

Three cheers for story tellingFlorence is a sweet tale of romance and love. It's more short story form than a novel. Good for a train ride to the city. The interactive portions are like artistic or musical flourishes than ”interaction,” which might leave you feeling more like an observer than a participant. The speech bubbles are an excellent metaphor for how we often struggle to find the right words, but all the pieces fit into place when the right person comes along. I enjoyed the characters. It's classic young love. I'd like the game designers delve deeper into character for their next work. There's lots more to explore by creating more complex characters and characterizations to go with them..Version: 1.0.2

I loved this app. For so many reasons.I rarely spend money on apps that aren’t productivity or something to help with the chores in life. I was drawn to this because of the artwork. Simple yet so beautiful. I purchased and am so happy I did. The story is so sweet. A little sad. But incredibly written with few words and mostly the artwork. I bought it awhile ago and when I saw it on the stories in the App Store I decided to download it again an revisit the characters that I have learned to love. This app won’t disappoint you. I came because I liked the artwork and I ended up completely in love with the characters and the story..Version: 1.0.5

BeautifulTouching game, already had me tearing up in the beginning. Wish the ending was a bit longer, the game is pretty short for the money that you pay for, but the experience is beautiful. This game has some fantastic ideas..Version: 1.0.5

5-star gameThis game is definitely worth the price. i played it for a few minutes across a whole week or two, which is really quite a lot for about £2. not to mention the fact that the unique experience of this game and the emotional impact of the story will dwell for most players, and is as re-consumable (playable) as an enjoyable film or comic. apps are often expected to be free, but the design, narrative and innovation of ‘Florence’ make it a sublime game, advancing the genre of smartphone gaming..Version: 1.0.4

Totally charmingI loved this. So immersive and moving, despite its apparent simplicity. Great storytelling. Bravo..Version: 1.0.5

Most Heart Felt Game on MobileFlorence is a short and sweet game that’s one of a kind on mobile. Has great story telling techniques with pictures and the interactive games make you feel apart of the story. Great if you want to experience a short story on mobile. 5/5. Highly recommend..Version: 1.0.5

PLAY THIS ITS WORTH THE $3This game was awesome. The interactive element is so artfully done, and it made the story feel so intimate and real. I cried multiple times. If I had to nitpick, I would’ve liked to see a little more autonomy with the gameplay; yes there are some parts where you’re given a lot of choice as to what you do, but as far as I can tell, there’s no point where the gameplay or choices you make have a significant impact on the story. This format would be perfect with a network of different endings and outcomes based on how you play the different interactive sections. Regardless, it was an amazing and moving experience, and I’m recommending it to all my friends. Thanks.Version: 1.0.5

BeautifulThis game is just a beautiful adventure, the ending was a bit of a let down but the message it sent was very nice. It’s pretty short but still very good..Version: 1.0

A charming game with a lovely styleAlthough the game was short, it’s style and storyline made it a charming game that I really enjoyed playing. I had never encountered a game quite like this one —sort of a interactive story-like game — but I enjoyed watching the life of the main character unfold to tell an uplifting story about life and love. It’s art style and music made the game unique and added to its charm, a lovely style I’m looking forward to in future games by these developers. I’m not much of a person for romantic or love themed games, but I took a chance on this game and was pleasantly surprised by it. I’m wholeheartedly looking forward to future games that this group has to offer and would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a thoughtful and artfully constructed story..Version: 1.0.5

AmazingThis game was very beautiful, the art style was unique and cute. The story was well thought out and the music was outstanding! One of the reasons I decided to get this game was because it said the cello was one of the main instruments. I play the cello and after finishing the storyline I was shocked to see the cellist had the same name as me! This is a short game so for those thinking about purchasing it just know it is not a long term game. I finished it in about 20 minutes or so. I highly recommend this game for those looking for a cute story and entertaining interactive gameplay..Version: 1.0.3

Beautiful, whimsical little journeyThis is a truly beautiful little game. It is completely immersive and I found myself caring for Florence. I wish there were more chapters..Version: 1.0.5

This transcends gaming into artFirst let me say if you believe that a game can transcend into art and are willing to be swept away into a narrative that’s emotional, thoughtfully executed, and immersive, then you will like this game. This is not a challenging video game per se, but more of an interactive story. I learned things about myself through playing, though I’m sure that certainly won’t be everyone’s experience. The game is short, but every part of it was very well thought out and the game at no point feels like it’s dragging, so I do not see this as a con. I personally highly recommend this game..Version: 1.0.3

Great story but I wish it were longerEverything about this game is fantastic from the music which is stunning. So I highly highly recommend headphones. The gameplay is great with having to actually do everything yet it doesn’t feel like a chore. The story is beautiful I won’t spoil anything but it brought a tear to my eye. The only thing I wish were that it would’ve been longer. The game feels like a deep kids book the way the art style and music gives it that vibe but that’s not in any way trying to take away from its beauty. I got the game as a treat since Valentines Day is tomorrow so why not and I ran through it in about 30 mins. It’s worth the money if you want a good story with stunning visuals, and a beautiful soundtrack. Just sit back with a blanket and enjoy it’s worth it :).Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful visually and emotionallyA very thoughtful story presented in such a clever way. Calm and deliberate about every aspect. Loved every minute of it, just wish it was longer!.Version: 1.0.1

Best game everThis was a very interesting and emotional story worth every penny.Version: 1.0.5

Great, but one thingThis game was really amazing. It was put together brilliantly and the mini games were short but entertaining. Although I would have loved the game to be a bit longer and with the relationship between Florence and Krish to end with them back together again. I would also have liked to hear about about Krish’s side. But maybe all this could be included in a part 2 of the game. 😏.Version: 1.0.4

I’m not crying, you’re cryingBravo.Version: 1.0.5

Completely BeautifulThis was so clever and so beautiful. 🥰.Version: 1.0.5

Amazing!I actually cried through the majority of the second half of this! Being in a similar situation to Florence, it has actually given me hope for my future. I gained a lot more out of watching/playing this than I expected and will be recommending it to family and friends. Thank you 😊.Version: 1.0.3

Up to your preference.It captivates you when you see the amazing reviews and it’s a love/life story; perfect for the consumer who wants to inflict waves of emotions for about 10-30 minutes. The artwork and the effort that is put into this game makes it worth the money since I didn’t have to buy any extensions, and rather than wasting my money on other pleasures, I’d thought I’d purchase the game just as one would go to see a movie. The storyline was predictable. It is similar to every other coming of age and love story combined into one. The true value of the game is in the detail though. While some may find it tedious or want to rush through it, they will not get the smaller details with the mini games. In summary, definitely a pleasant experience for myself since I was able to catch on to almost every small detail, however, if you are one to rush through games without realizing the purpose as to why everything happens in the order it proceeds in, then this one may not be for you. Loved it..Version: 1.0.1

BeautifulWow! What a beautiful story of life! The way you can interact with the story is great, I love how when using the speech bubbles it shows that it gets easier to talk to him, so much creativity has gone into this, the music is also very beautiful put together, I hope to see more stories in the future, I will definitely purchase them ☺️ Well done to all who put this together..Version: 1.0.5

Truly BeautifulThis story was done in such a way you became involved with the characters so quickly. I love how each interactive part was connected with what was happening in the story. I still have a lump in my throat from all of the emotions the storyline and the music made me feel. It reminds me of my own relationships and how even the hurtful ones make you who you are. I always hate to watch my daughter feel the pain of certain life events, but those events are necessary and build us bit by bit. If life was perfect all of the time we would be bored or we wouldn’t appreciate the wonderful times so much. So glad I found this app..Version: 1.0.4

It really is beautiful!At first I’m like “lol how can a game be beautiful?”. Honestly, I never write reviews. This game is actually beautiful, it’s so calming and sweet. I feel like I’m lost in a sweet cartoon movie. Something like coraline but nothing remotely that has to do with coraline. But it just gives me that type of cartoon vibe but in a more sweet way. A kind of Sundance film. Lol well anyone that plays the game knows what I mean. It’s just so nice. To be honest I’m really bad at explaining myself for the most part 😂. Well I should just cut to the point. The game is awesome and very relaxing. It’s interactive but tells a story. It’s really nice for people who enjoy love movies and sweet moments. Watching someone grow from a child to a woman to finding love. Really worth the few dollars in my opinion..Version: 1.0.5

Short but touching, artistic and sweet!To be honest the game is lovely and fun, but it is shorter than I expected..Version: 1.0.1

Breathtakingly BeautifulThis story is so real and visceral. It really captures you. The gameplay elements are thoughtful, intelligent, and sometimes stopped me completely while I thought about their meaning. I rarely write reviews but this game is a gem and I can't recommend it enough..Version: 1.0.3

Cute, sweet, artistic ☺️It was a very cute game, I hope they bring out more stories within the game. Maybe different people wishing Florence’s family or her two other friends? Whatever they do I hope they add more to it and keep it exactly how it is because this game is so nice and relaxing 🙏🏽 10/10.Version: 1.0.3

Adorable!A bittersweet story with gorgeous art and a lot of heart..Version: 1.0.5

Strong recommendationWhilst I erred over the purchase button, as you are now, my first thought was whether or not this ‘game’ (I leave ‘game’ in this format due to its lack of game like features, I would sooner label it an interactive story, perhaps a visual novel is a good example.) would last long enough to validate my purchase. It was not. However, its other features more than made up for this. Several moments in the experience I actually would call good game design. (for example the scene where as Florence finds talking to Krish easier, the puzzles involved with speech also become easier.) This is worth your three quid if you are interested in a short emotionally resonant story, enjoy any kind of animation, or have ten to fifteen minutes to spare..Version: 1.0.3

Breath-TakingI actually grinned from ear to ear and even teared up during sections. Such marvellous creative storytelling, really tapping into that joy of discovery and the unexpected. The story was so crisp and focused, the music so moving and... just incredible. 100% a must play. Truly one of my favourite experiences on the iPhone. I’ll be getting everyone I know to play this....Version: 1.0.5

A Wonderful and Heartbreaking StoryI don’t normally play games on my phone but something about Florence caught my eye. I had always heard wonderful things about Monument Valley and wanted to give Florence a chance. I’m glad I did. Even if broke my heart slightly in the process. I’ve been a fan of video games since I was a kid but Florence uplifts the medium in a way I have never experienced. It’s a short but powerful and incredible experience. If you get the chance, please delve into this beautiful story. It’s worth every penny. I think I really needed a game like this in my life at this moment. Thank you to everyone who put their love into this game. It shows and I’m a happier person after completing this. Thank you, thank you!.Version: 1.0.1

Great little game!I really liked the story, and had a good time playing it. Because the story is broken into chapters, I was able to pick up and play throughout my day with breaks in between, which I liked. I also liked the puzzles. Apart of me wishes the game supported landscape mode more on iPad, because holding the iPad in portrait mode can be awkward sometimes. Spoilers! Only real thing I wish the game detailed more was what caused the breakup in the first place. And apart of me wishes he showed up at the end at the gallery..Version: 1.0.1

Gorgeous!This game/interactive comic is absolutely stunning! I was drawn into it straight away by the unique artwork and the immersive experience created by the music (I would recommend headphones as it suggests) it doesn’t take too long to finish 15/20 minutes but I would say definitely worth your money!! I was even in tears during a couple of the chapters, now imagine how engaging and poignant this must be to have you experience so much raw emotion in such a short time...what an experience. Hats off to the developer and I will most definitely be purchasing anything further they decide to make. Wonderful. Thanks for such a great game 👏🏾.Version: 1.0.3

Still weeping and smiling all at onceWow, this game has moved me in such a way as to bring me to tears of happiness, sadness, and just hearing the soundtrack can give me chills and butterflies. I. Am. In. Love! Thank you for this special story. Relatable in so many ways. Heartbreaking and bittersweet in many more. I feel very nostalgic and hopeful now that I have entered its world. I just moved to Japan and it made me miss Melbourne so much! The landscape was particularly beautiful and the animation was sublime. Can’t recommend this game enough. Thank you thank you!!.Version: 1.0.5

Eye opening & Stunning artworkThis game is an absolute must, it is so interactive and you feel like you’re part of this emotional story. Soul touching and most people experience this in their life so it is nice for people to know they are not alone. What a beautiful story. It is a short game, but so worth the money and the time. I will be playing this again for sure. Beautiful artwork. Highly recommend. ☺️ PLEASE DO NOT READ ANYMORE OF THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED THE GAME, I HAVE QUESTIONS I AM DYING TO KNOW ABOUT THE GAME! *SPOILER ALERT* Please do a part 2. I really want to find out more about Florence and Krish. Do they get back together, does Florence find someone new and they remain friends? If you do a part 2, I was hoping to see a pregnancy, like to go through the stages of it and everything and then the child growing up, and then eventually, Florence growing old, I think these would all be amazing ideas for a next part if you ask me. 😁 Thank you for the amazing experience, looking forward to the next part of the game! 🤞🏼.Version: 1.0.3

Sublime! Exquisite!It’s clear to see this game was made with love. From the art, music, story... everything is just lovely. Thoughtful use of the iPhone touch screen to enhance the story telling and puzzles too. I also really enjoyed seeing Melbourne in a game, which is something I’ve never seen before personally! Yay Melbourne! So many heart clutches throughout. Highly recommend!.Version: 1.0.5

Storytelling in a captivating new wayAs an illustrator this game spoke to me on so many levels. The stunning visuals, amusing interactions and phenomenal sound all come together to really invite you into Florence’s world. Her thoughts and feelings are wordlessly conveyed and you can’t help but feel them right alongside of her. The entire platform is a completely new way of story telling. The idea of interactive storytelling combines the best parts of comics, illustrations, music, movies and video game. If this is the future of illustrative story telling than sign me up! Absolutely amazing job done by everyone who worked on this app. Bravo!.Version: 1.0.1

Florence The Great!!!This game is awesome😍 It’s really an interactive graphic novel but there are elements that do challenge the player/reader/user to think. I loved every moment of it. It’s so creative and inspiring for those who are creative!!! Please don’t miss an opportunity to not only experience but support this great app. It is as uplifting and fun as it is unique, albeit a bit heart breaking. And you get out of it more than you pay for it! Kudos to the developers for coming up with this great app. All of you must be an amazingly creative group of people! Thanks for putting something so beautiful that is actually worth buying in the App Store!!!!.Version: 1.0.1

A beautiful gameVery short but what a beautiful game! Such great ways to interact with your phone screen and the game, it feels so natural and a beautiful story. I thought at the end someone would’ve showed up but nope :( but I won’t spoil it 🤫.Version: 1.0.5

Short but beautifulAlbeit short, this is a beautifully told story of a first love and how it guides you to lose sight of, and then ultimately find your true self. The game play is mostly simple and intuitive, but at times can leave you a little stumped and frustrated - which is very much attune to the flow and message within the story. This brought back a few bittersweet memories for me, in a very authentic way..Version: 1.0.1

BeautifulHonestly this game reminds me of a John Green novel, like The Fault in our Stars, or, the up and coming Love Simon. It has a beautiful tragedy story with an elegant simplicity and after getting your heart torn apart, the game lovingly puts it back together. The emotions this game produces linger even after finishing the game for a few weeks now, giving a lovingly bittersweet forlorn hug to your heart. One this game was entirely worth the money I paid for it, although the game itself is a little elementary with gameplay, though that was intended. The downside to these easy touch, tap, and drag controls is that the game passes by incredibly quickly and ends very soon. Upon the breakup of the main characters, the healing process the game allows you to progress through is a great time lengthener but all in all the game was still a bit short (but again, the storyline is very well developed and fleshed out). Overall the game is worth a purchase but the time spent playing will not last long..Version: 1.0.1

FlorenceI loved the game and thought that it was very well done! However I wish that there was more to the game. I wish that there were more chapters in order for me to continue playing. I also wish that there would have been more Krish and that his story would have been explored more..Version: 1.0.3

An experience too beautiful for the market it’s inFlorence is a comic book styled narrative game with limited interactivity and no dialogue. Yet manages to strike an emotional chord with its fantastic art and music. There’s no replay value or skill required to play this 30-40mins experience. However, if you’re open to experiencing new types of games and want a deeply personal story that will resonate with almost everybody, I can’t recommend Florence enough. The App Store is awash with time wasters, low creativity and money focused exploitation that’s trained its audience to expect everything for free and be bludgeoned with manipulation. Pay for true art. Buy Florence..Version: 1.0.1

Powerful and Moving, yet so simpleYou can tell that a lot of love went into developing this game. It’s short, but so worth the price tag. I recently just got over a break up, and this story moved me so hard. And a special mention to the music team, it ties the story together so perfectly. Brava!!.Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful!This game is so beautiful to look at and to play. There are so many little details that make this game seamless and really immersive. The music is INCREDIBLE! I can’t even begin to describe how emotive it is. Florence is such a nice way to spend your time and I got hooked! I would happily support a sequel 💐 The personal touches and levels of interactivity are varied nicely and you can tell this game was really lovingly made. I adored this game start to finish and honestly could play it over and over..Version: 1.0.5

This is what I’ve been looking forFlorence is a beautifully drawn, simple interactive, story telling game. It is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I fell in love with the insanely perfect music, the stunning animations and the unique interactions throughout the story. I hope it’s get all the recognition it deserves..Version: 1.0.5

A universal tale of young loveIt's 99 cents, seriously, what are you waiting for?? I first played this game when it was originally released and every now and again, I pick it up once more. The story of young love you’ve heard 1000 times, making it all the more impressive that the developers managed to convey a narrative in a way that stands out. Florence made me feel stronger emotions in it’s roughly 45 minute playtime than most romcoms do over two hours. This game is wonderful and it’s a steal at 99 cents. You’ll thank me later, just give it a try..Version: 1.0.5

Just wowThis game was a beautiful journey, that can really mean a lot if you’ve even struggled to get over an ex, and probably means a lot in other ways as well. The symbolism is deep and meaningful, the art is beautiful, the amazing music is cherry on top Dang that was lovely, SPOILERS**** ********* I was super sad at the end when she didn’t end up with that woman she was talking to at the art exhibition, I would’ve loved that ending so much, but her being happy alone is also nice.Version: 1.0.3

A short art game worth paying forLet’s get a couple of things straight up front: 1. Florence is not so much a game as an interactive short story. 2. You can play through it in around 30 minutes, and though I haven’t tried playing it through a second time, it doesn’t appear to have much replay value. Nonetheless I was happy to give the developers $3 for the experience of playing this unique game. It was a lot more memorable than the 3/4 of a drink at Starbucks I could have spent the money on instead. The thing that stands out to me about Florence is the way it uses game mechanics as metaphors. I can’t go into much detail without spoiling anything, but for example there are parts that involve puzzle pieces. Some reviews have griped about the apparent simplicity of this mechanic, but that misses the point. Notice when the puzzles get more and less complex. There are some powerful statements about people and relationships under the veneer of this game. 5/5 would cry on my iPad again..Version: 1.0.3

Love it!!!!I love this game it’s has beautiful graphics and a wonderful story. It’s really short tho and I don’t think it’s that worth the money..Version: 1.0.3

A tale of love and life.Florence is a game where you follow Florence Yeoh as she goes through her young adult life, and as she finds love with a musician named Krish. Simple puzzles and interactive events make up the bulk of the gameplay, but that’s not really the focus here, it’s the story. It's told through charming art and beautiful music, without the need of dialogue. I was absolutely taken immediately with Florence's story, seeing some parallels to my own day to day routine. Florence is breath of fresh air for me, as I've recently had my heels dug in with Breath of the Wild, so it was nice to play something so relaxing and lovingly crafted that really played to my emotions. Fair warning, Florence eschews gameplay in favor of storytelling, so if that sounds like something you'd be interested, it has my highest recommendation..Version: 1.0.1

Just amazing!This game is amazing! It’s not just about one simple thing like in other games, it’s really fun and inspirational, the emotion with this game is amazingly fun and heart capturing. I highly suggest playing this if you want an emotional game instead of a shooting game like every other game these days, so if you want to take an emotional ride I suggest playing this game.Version: 1.0.3

Just lovely!This is not really a game, but a simply told interactive story about love. It looks gorgeous, sounds incredible, and draws you in with gentle but inventive interactions. It’s amazing how immersive it feels and how quickly it works its way to your heart. It only took about half an hour to “play” but made me cry at least twice! Pure, gentle, emotionally resonant and worth paying for if you fancy a new experience..Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful and sweetLife never goes the way we plan it. Dreams are lost, hope changes. Relationships come... and go. This charming game shines on those facts, but brings a hopeful beauty to it. A wonderful game, a beautiful story, a delightful piece of art..Version: 1.0.3

BeautifulI like puzzle games and I enjoy graphic novels. This app is both of them with a heartfelt storyline that I can be a part of. I had been off and on again with a man for three years thinking it was going to work. I have felt guilty ever since we had stopped talking. I wanted to be an individual and be true to myself and what I wanted. After a while of not having in my life and just now playing this game, I am reassured that I made the right choice and it was for myself. I am a wonderful person with or without another person romantically. I will do what. Want to do and grow from what my previous relationships and friendships have taught me: to love myself and do what I want and need to do. This game made me cry several times because of how relatable and warm it felt. I appreciate this game and all it is worth. Because it is work a hundred times over in wonder and genuine work..Version: 1.0.4

A staggeringly beautiful game.Playing this game from the point of view of a husband and father, this game struck a strong chord. A beautiful and poignant story, which so cleverly plucked so many heartstrings, coupled with game play that communicated the feelings and emotions of the two characters so well. I felt I really understood the main protagonist intimately and the sweet interactions you make to progress her life cleverly drew you into her daily routine. A bittersweet game with passion, heart and optimism. Simply stunning..Version: 1.0.1

A Rare ThingFlorence is a beautiful story game. I urge you not to burn through it, the puzzles can be solved with relative ease, but that doesn’t mean the game should be beaten in an afternoon. Take your time, relish in the original score, appreciate the little details in the art, reflect on your own life’s parallels to Florence’s. There’s a very short list of games that are undeniably art. Journey being the poster child, Monument Valley is in there; Florence wholeheartedly deserves it’s place in their ranks..Version: 1.0

Amazing Game!Florence ties its simple and intuitive mechanics with its heartwarming and evocative storytelling wonderfully. The story is delivered elegantly and immersed me all the way through. I think it's a good length; it's not long at all but not too short either, just long enough to tell the complete story. Give Florence a shot, it's a memorable experience and the kind of game you don't see too often!.Version: 1.0.3

Excellent game for kids too!I originally bought this for myself (ie an adult) but my daughter (aged 2.5) also LOVES playing this, she needed a little help with some of the puzzles to begin with so we had a nice time playing together but most of the interactions she can now do independently. She plays it over and over. Loves brushing the teeth, loves the puzzle speech bubbles and loves the paper butterfly and boat. I love the music in the background. Unlike all kids games the sound is nice to hear in the background..Version: 1.0.5

Quite simply one of the best games of 2018A short but emotional story that pulled me in from the start and didn’t let go. Florence is a wonderfully told interactive story with sublime music and visuals that create a heartfelt insight into her life as she struggles with her boring office job and dreams of doing something she loves. A brief but inspiring journey that I will replay again, and share with my friends. Kudos to the Mountains team and Annapurna Interactive for making one of the best games of 2018 and beyond..Version: 1.0.3

I love itI just downloaded this and played the whole thing, wasnt quite sure if it was worth the money at the start but I just finished it an I can say that it is worth every cent. The story is so touching and especially if you get attached to characters really quickly like I do, the ending hit really hard because I relete so much and it's so sad going through it and not being able to change the outcome of anythat that happened. Thank you deva you made one of the best games ever, shows that there are still a few quality games out there. I'd happy buy a sequel to this.Version: 1.0.3

Just Gorgeous!I wish it could be longer!.Version: 1.0.1

Really touchingOne of the most tuching interactive stories I’ve ever come across..Version: 1.0.5

Cute storyline and artwork! Loved the music!A relatable story for coming of age adults. Cute artwork and beautiful soundtrack. My partner bought this game for my birthday, so it’s a bit sentimental for me. 💕 (I gave it a 4 because I wanted alternative endings lol 😂).Version: 1.0.5

Know what to expect and give in to itFlorence is a *short* interactive comic, with an evocative soundtrack, lovely craft-game user-interaction touches, and many creative visual ideas brought to life. It is absolutely beautifully-written, a concise and bittersweet snapshot of the accelerating roller-coaster of new love. It’s not very long, and the games are both simple, and fiddly in place, but when you think of the design work, story-boarding and production by four people at a craft games studio, this is a great achievement and well worth the money - very comparative to a single comic or tv episode. I love it and can’t wait to see what Mountains does next. Thanks!.Version: 1.0.3

Beautiful!This game had such beautiful illustrations yet it was so simple. I enjoyed playing this game so much and the interactive aspect of it was amazing! This game made me laugh, cry but for the most part it made me feel happy! I would 10/10 recommend this game! The ending is so joyous and I almost found myself crying from happiness! The creators of this game did a spectacular job!!.Version: 1.0.3

Unbelievable!I played this just after midnight as I got into bed, and put my earphones in just like the app recommends. I honestly felt like I was completely immersed in this story, it was beautiful! It hooked me in right away. The artwork, the music, the storytelling, literally everything worked so well together and made it so worthwhile. I related to Florence a lot, and found myself reacting to the situations to try and keep her happy. Or to try and make choices that I though would be the best for her in the long run. A couple of the interactions really took me a good bit to finish, I was thinking about them that much! It’s a rather short comic, only around 15-20 minutes in total it took for me, but there’s so much in there, and you get much more out of it! I highly recommend everyone should at least try this game. If interactive comics and the likes interest you, please play this. Thank you for this, It’s beautiful. 💕.Version: 1.0.1

WonderfulI would recommend this game to anyone emotionally struggling through a breakup. I am currently going through one and this game has honestly helped me emotionally come to terms with it. Every time I find myself struggling I come back to it. To everyone who worked on this game thank you..Version: 1.0.5

Such a good game!I am absolutely amazed by how this game was designed. The interaction tied to the story nicely, you are not just clicking button or move things around on the screen, you are actually moving the story forward and it feels like you are the character. I wish the story could continue or have other chapters to show how the boy is doing..Version: 1.0

Couldn’t be done in any other medium.What a sublime emotional journey. Couldn’t be done in any other medium. The interactivity brings you into the character’s heads and make you feel every beat in the story. The music and soundscape add to the delightful animation style. So many beautiful touches that take you back to the very first time you fell in love..Version: 1.0

A Review worth readingI know, “is it worth buying?” I would say yes. I’m the kind of person who has anxiety and lots of stress, and I’ve been looking for an app that will relieve it. I’ve looked at games that google told me to try, and even apps with the word calm in the title, but they’ve all been a waste of time and-or money. This app wasn’t recommended as a “calming app” but it soothes me 100 percent. From the INCREDIBLE music to the beautiful art, it is money worth spent, because once I clicked on the app for the first time, I knew I would play it over and over, until my brain had literally done yoga. So yes, it’s a good investment 100%..Version: 1.0.3

Very touching. Amazing art. Worth the price!Really enjoyed playing through this. I don’t normally play that sort of thing on my phone but when I saw the art I had to try it. Very good..Version: 1.0

Light escape from realityThis was whimsical and quite entertaining. The music was astoundingly beautiful. I’ve seen reviews about it being short but it felt just enough. I rarely ever leave reviews for apps but this is quite worth its value and worth mentioning you will be getting value animation and quality all over. It’s quite ageless too in a sense if you are imaginative and enjoy a visually indulgent stroll in someone else’s shoes for a little while..Version: 1.0.5

Beautiful Game but far too short for the price.I personally thought the game was a solid first effort for the studio. The gameplay mechanics are pretty straightforward. The story is fine, however, it could have done better with a chapter or two more of detail. The art style is simple but you can’t help and fall in love with it. All in all, I think the game could of done with being longer; especially at the price range they’re aiming for. I would recommend waiting for a sale before picking it up tbh..Version: 1.0

Great narrative gameThis was my first time playing a narrative game and I actually almost felt like crying in it.Version: 1.0.5

Love this gameA short real but great story. I love the style so much, it’s simple but beautiful. The romantic met, sweet process, and the ending of leaving each other, made me uncontrollably think about me and my ex who just broke up several days ago. I used to be hurt so much and just could not get out of it, of those great memories we both have and did together. I’m so thankful that this game tells me what to do. Thank you for letting me know the simplest principle: whatever how important they meant to us, everyone is just a story, which can only be a story, closing its think cover. I finally know that I should let those beauty go, let him go, and look for new scenery in my life. Great game, hoping there will be more ones like this..Version: 1.0.5

Sublimely beautifulFlorence was an amazing journey through and through. Excellent art and design choices backed by a beautiful soundtrack transported me into the life of Florence and I’m still thinking about it days after playing. Well worth a play through. Can’t wait to see what Mountains do next!.Version: 1.0.1

FlorenceCharming, original, heartfelt and pure magic from start to finish..Version: 1.0.4

BeautifulSo different to anything else I’ve played. The music made me teary and the graphics are so lovely. Love how the interactive and puzzles bring you into the story. I wanted to linger on some parts just to listen and get lost in the mood. Must play with sound up!.Version: 1.0.3

Beautiful and relatableDownload this because I thought the art style was pretty and I’m so glad I did! The storyline and characters were amazing the music fits beautifully so atmospheric especially if your curled up in the evening playing this with headphones on. Such an amazing experience I fully recommend you play this..Version: 1.0.5

Gentle, heart-wrenching, beautiful.A silent story through the green shoots, the nurturing and eventual death of Florence Yeoh’s first relationship. The drawings are sweet and the narrative simple but emotionally heart-wrenching. You must leave the music on, and I suggest you treat your interaction with Florence as you would immerse yourself in a good book; alone, comfortable, uninterrupted. It only lasts about twenty minutes from start to finish, so quite expensive for £ per minute. Quality is worth it though..Version: 1.0.1

An amazing experience like nothing else!This game truly shows that mobile apps can be great media for story tellers. The blend of beautiful music, clever interactions and a soul-touching story presented an amazing and engaging experience like nothing else! Definitely worth the purchase. P.S. Melbourne scenes are instantly recognizable as I live there as well. Knowing that the creators are based in Melbourne gets me excited. Hope I can meet them. Great work!.Version: 1.0.3

Loved itLoved playing this game, loved the story and the graphics. I did just wish the puzzles were a bit harder and it went on for a bit longer! It was pretty short..Version: 1.0.1

I’m in loveSo so so beautiful. Exactly the moments I love from a narrative and a game! I wish there was more, please tell me there’s more like this coming!!.Version: 1.0.1

Une pépite non savouréeTrès courte d’histoire d’une durée de 30 à 45 minutes, mais qui promet! Le prix devrait se restreindre à 1,99$..Version: 1.0.5

So simply beautifulIt was quick but the story was amazing and brought a few tears. Lovely art work, would recommend highly to friends..Version: 1.0

Beautiful gameplay, but shallowThis was a beautiful game, every detail is flawless and full of expression. As a piece of art, the game expresses a new way of storytelling that I am very much delighted by. Conversations are turned into puzzles, dreams into canvases, and routine everyday life into rote mechanics. What I wish for, and hope to see in their next game, is more character development. Playing the game, while the mechanics and art are enthralling, you can't help but feel that you don't actually know the characters at all. You're just watching something play out from an incredibly distant vantage point, occassionally acting as them but rarely understanding. I imagine most of this comes from no real dialogue in the game, which is a great design decision but I don't think needs to necessarily come at the expense of character development like it seems to here..Version: 1.0.2

Can’t Wait For More Games!!!Full of beautiful visuals, amazing story telling, and beyond pleasant music, Florence is the pinochle of what a story based app can be. So simplistic yet so wonderfully done, I found myself coming back to the app even though I’d finished the game. It’s so satisfying to complete such a lovely game, you may just end up like me, playing it as a way to get inspired and relax even though your first play through can be emotionally driven. This is the first app by these creators, and I’m extremely excited for more story based games by them! This game was truly a labor of love, and it really shows through it all. ❤️ Thank you for one of my favorite apps.Version: 1.0.1

One of the best appsI loved this interactive app! The animations and music is BREATHTAKING!! You could tell the creators put a LOT of effort into making this app. I enjoyed this app and the ways it shows Florence’s life story (Very Creative) It was 100% worth the money for the quality of the app! The music through out the app fitted PERFECTLY with the moods through out EVERY chapter! Though I did feel like it was over before it started and should of had multiple endings! I think (if the creators got a chance) that this interactive game should have a sequence where it shows what happened when the boy left and his story did it get better or worse? In addition it would have been EVEN BETTER if they had of added multiple endings! But overall it was an AMAZING app and I had a memorable experience!.Version: 1.0.5

A deceptively simple and deeply affecting experienceOn a mechanical level, one may spend an hour on a single playthrough/reading of Florence, in terms of the whole experience I know that it will leave a continual impression on me not only through repeat visits but in spending time with the work as a whole. The music, art style, and interactive elements of the narrative are all delightful, even writing about them in a rather vague manner kindles some joy in me. The themes and larger story of Florence, though, is what makes it most thoroughly connect with me. Each chapter feels like a vignette into one of the many facets/dimensions of the actions and experiences that make up love. I look forward to meditating on these themes in my own writing and in conversation and in my alone time..Version: 1.0.5

Lovely but too short. Not replayableEnjoyed it. Game play is easy. But it is over quickly.Version: 1.0.5

Elegant story!This game subtly captured the helplessness one experiences during a heartbreak—the pieces are still there, but you just can’t put them back together. Well done!.Version: 1.0.5

FlorenceI absolutely love this game, the animation and story is phenomenal. The only criticism I have is that the game is quite short and that I would like more chapters but I am still super obsessed with this game!! I would be so happy if you guys (the creators of Florence) made more games like this with different characters or the next few years of Florence's life. I would TOTALLY love that. So overall, this game is amazing, but I would prefer if it was longer and had more in depth chapters and I would be so amazingly excited I if you made more games like this (keeping my criticism in mind). Lots of Love Hermione Granger ❤..Version: 1.0.5

Awesome but shortBrilliant story telling. Did not take long to finish as I raced through it but found the mini games to set the right pace and tone for the game. If you’re after a quick and short story book, this is the right game for you..Version: 1.0.3

Beautiful experienceThis is not a game but a experience. It's just beautiful and a completely new idea. I loved how the game moves, how the puzzle make sense, how everything is more thoughtful that you would think. I highly recommend this to people who are looking for something different and want to feel a real relationship in a very short spam of time. Also the art is just so clean and beautiful..Version: 1.0

Why Florence is Worth Your Three DollarsJust finished Florence and woo boy, what a ride. First off, yeah, I’d say this is worth $3. That’s not me putting off this experience or saying it’s cheap, but rather that it’s about the right price for the length of the game. Florence as a game is straightforward: It’s basically an interactive comic. There’s barely any words, just wonderfully illustrated scenes and perfect accompanying music. The haptic feedback is satisfying, and the “gameplay” is super-duper simple, often implementing drag-and-drop mechanics or thumb-swiping to keep things moving. But the story is the big draw here, and while it is rather short, it’s a good-un, and it’s brilliant in how it conveys so much with so little. If you’re into an emotion-stirring story with believable, tragically and wonderfully human characters, this is a great choice. It’ll get ya. In conclusion, Florence is a spectacular little title for this new (I’m assuming new) team of game designers and storytellers, and I very much look forward to what else they have to offer in terms of emotive and compelling experiences like this one in the future. I’m on board to support whatever’s next! Great job, guys!.Version: 1.0.1

Just perfectThank you for making this, it’s an absolute treat. So tenderly done and a joy to discover. Edit - I’ve returned to this about four times over the last three years and each time it rewards me with so much. It’s a superb example of a great balance between narrative and ‘game’ and a delightful graphic novel with so many charming aspects. Thank you again.Version: 1.0.5

Brings back all the memoriesI couldn’t stop crying when I saw the Melbourne map. Relocated to Sydney in late 2017 and had to break up with my then boyfriend. Every scene in Florence captures the exact feeling of us being together, even the protagonist’s appearance resembles my own. Thank you for this beautiful piece of work.Version: 1.0.3
