I've been looking forward to Edge of Twilight for years. Following the game from its early promises, through to its legal troubles with original publisher Southpeak, its worrisome postponement, and eventual return to the public eye, it's been a compelling story for a game that's boasted a ton of potential.
To whet our appetites while the main game continues production, developer Fuzzyeyes has released Edge of Twilight: Athyr Above, an iOS action game that gives us our first real taste of what's on offer.
I wish I could say it's a good omen, a fortuitous start that has me excited for the eventual console launch. Unfortunately, while there's a good game clearly trying to break free of Athyr Above's constraints, it's crippled by an ineffective user interface, sluggish controls, and utterly broken platform sections.
All I can really say now is I'm glad this wasn't the only thing all these years have led to.
