City Quests Media and Sine Wave Entertainment, has pulled out all of the stops, to create a grand production for his or her first game, City Run London. Though City Quests Media is definitely an independent developer, all the hard work which has gone into this title, is really impressive. If you want stealth-based game play, you will be drawn right into a story set in London in 1545. The primary protagonist is really a heroine known only because the Moth. The game comes to the Play Store next week.
The development team behind City Run London includes a remarkable array of people from different industries, including artists, authors, music and film. It makes sense a game that is full-featured with an engaging story/game play, dynamic voice-over work, pristine music production and imaginative art direction. The pictures that you see within the screenshots below, sometimes seem like a mix of art present in graphic novels and water color paintings. The heroine of the story is Willa, but the people that wish to capture her, only know her because the Moth.
1545 City of London. Exhausted by demanding wives and civil unrest, the King only listens to his spies and it is swift to punish anyone who dares to speak against him. The wrong thing and you’ll hang for it! Players guide heroine Willa – recognized to the authorities only because the Moth – making use of her skills of invisibility and cunning in her own mission to rescue the Brother Joseph.

City Quests Media has taken additional time prior to the Android release to review players’ feedback and suggestions, to make City Run London much more enjoyable to experience.?
Willa (The Moth) is cloaked in gray. She hurriedly walks through the different environments. The game designers have chosen to use a tap to maneuver control system for that game. Some players rather have on-screen touch controls, however in this example, during our brief time of playing the game, we found it is actually helpful using the touch to move game mechanic. As Willa approaches the various areas they must pass without having to be seen. You’ll be able to see the enemies’ cone of vision, that is critical in helping keep Willa alive. It’s shown on the ground because they move about. While using tap to move mechanic, you are able to slowly move the Moth right place, and wait for a guards to make their sweep. Once you are securely hidden plus they go by you, tap again to obtain her to move. A few of the levels have a number of enemies, so timing your movements is important.
The skill direction hanging around is striking. The palette of colors chosen for that levels change from highly contrasted colors to muted tones. The level of detail in the characters and environments, provide sufficient realism, that you might end up checking screen, curious about how the art was made. Many of the environments that Willa encounters are multi-tiered. There are also puzzles that she must solve, to make it to the end from the level. Sometimes, you’ll be pulling levers to lift an item, so that you can reach another part of the map. Elsewhere in the game, it’s about getting The Moth to just the right area, so a scene can be triggered to maneuver the story along.
What really drives this game is really a strong narrative, convincing voice-over work along with a soundtrack that melds seamlessly into the story. The soundtrack can be obtained on Google Play and CD Baby if you are thinking about checking it out.?

City Run London is all about stealth, strategy, patience and implementing your plan. There’s a fair amount of exploration the Moth must undertake, to determine how to get to the next level. There were some areas which i wandered around for some moments before I figured out things i required to do, or the way i needed to access the next area. It wasn’t frustrating because you are fully immersed hanging around. Good sound effects, snow whirling about or the fascinating way the maps are created and drawn keep you centered on everyone around you that has been produced.
When you tap the screen for Willa to move, a white encircled moth is shown on the ground. This indicates in which you have directed Willa to visit. There’s also a symbol of a watch in the upper left hand corner of the screen. This lets you see the level from a different perspective, an almost bird’s eye view. Seeing the level out of this perspective will help you to better craft your arrange for movement. This only can last for a brief period of time, so you’ve to take it all in quickly. I found the sport simpler to experience my tablet, rather than my phone. Even though I actually do have one of the larger phones currently available, a few of the maps are very intricate, and larger fingers could make it a bit more difficult to navigate. I also wanted to slowly move the maps around, zoom in or zoom out, but that is not possible. The bird’s eye view helps, but the areas are so intriguing, I needed additional control. Each of the maps is really a work of art really, so that limits the amount of control available. The Willa can wander around, however in a restricted fashion.
