    Finally got around to playing this. I have to agree with the general consensus that it's a great tablet game that loses it's appeal when played on a PC. The biggest pros, of course, are the story and the fan service. It's also pretty neat that they managed to capture the general look of DXHR on a portable device.

    The biggest negative, discounting the design aspects that were clearly made with a tablet in mind (disappearing bodies, tardis store, limited movement) is how glitchy certain things are. The interface is an unresponsive mess, forcing you to wait a moment before selecting menu items or it simply refuses to acknowledge your clicks. The way talking to NPC's will take priority over picking up the object you're staring at is annoying. I had a few cases, in what is a short game, where I fell through the level geometry. I've had the AI see me through a solid wall (which is kind of odd, since they're normally as blind as the AI in the first DX). The difficulty is almost insulting (beat the entire game without using a weapon except for the tutorial), and that includes the use of the personality augment which directly tells you how to deal with the NPC you're talking to (in DXHR, you still had to think a little bit about what you were doing in conversations). And of course, there's the cliffhanger ending with no sequel in sight.

    lol none of those bugs were in the tablet version. But yeah, it was still stupidly easy even on mobile (and I imagine the PC controls made that even worse) and the cliffhanger/length sucks.

    Is there a way to play The Fall on iOS in 2023? The game appears to have been pulled from the App Store.

    Wow, I had forgotten all abou this game. No idea if it's playable on iOS, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not.

    I poked around a bit and looks like someone actually modded the PC version to improve FOV and such things. And it's currently on sale. Hmm, maybe I should finally play this thing.

    That is a cool find, henke! I might end up opting for the PC port if the mod fixes major problems that weren't there on Android and iOS.

    If you really want to play The Fall, you may as well go for the PC version. You're not missing anything by playing on PC vs. tablet. Just don't expect it to play like a Human Revolution expansion pack. The watered down, easy gameplay means The Fall won't offer a challenge, and the new story branch is a dead end. So I only recommend it if you're like me and just can't leave a Deus Ex hub level unexplored.
