Papers Please iOS

Papers Please is Compatible with iPad, not iPhone Devices, A reason that the game is only for the iPad is because the developer didn’t believe there was enough real estate on the iPhone to play the game. He tweeted out that it was “tight even on the iPad mini.” If that’s true, it should be interesting to see how the Vita version is implemented. (EDIT on August 6, 2022: finally Papers, please released for mobile phones! More information)

The simple interface of Papers, Please feels right at home on iPad. Playing the game in portrait mode just makes more sense, and the touchscreen is perfect for shuffling through papers and pointing out contradictions. It’s also an easy game to play in short bursts, as the in-game days only last a few minutes each, making it a good fit for a mobile device.

#3 Peace, Death! – 2017

Work for Death! Become an employee of Apocalypse, Inc. – and send their clients to Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory! Peace, Death! is an arcade simulator that’s harder than it may seem at first glance!

This game is like Papers Please where the main objective is to send people to the right places, and to do that you have to examine everyone thoroughly. Initially it’s pretty easy to tell which one goes to where. Like people with horns always go to hell, demons of course must go to hell, and angels must go to heaven. But as the days went on, the more complex everyone is and the tougher it will get. They’ll add new rules, like “someone with blood stains and dangerous weapons on them must go to hell! But if they are willing to let their past sins go, they can go to purgatory” etc. But if you keep a sharp eye on everyone, you’ll be a master grim reaper in no time!

#6 Please Don’t Touch Anything – 2015

Please, Don't Touch AnythingPlease, Don’t Touch Anything is a cryptic, brain-racking button-pushing puzzle game.

The crazy things that happen in this game are the point of the experience: you mess around and try to solve things in order to discover all 25 of the game’s endings. You have a massive array of buttons and switches to manipulate, with different events that happen based on you discovering what they do. You have a few hints available to you on the warning screen on the top left, and occasionally scattered around the machine, which you just need to piece together. Those hints will help, but a lot of the game is discovery and doing things for yourself, mashing buttons until you cause things to happen.

The oppressive-looking desk job reminds me of Papers, Please (and so does the ‘please,’ obviously), but PDTA’s sense of humor makes it a bit more like The Stanley Parable, if you reduced Stanley’s repetitious adventures into buttons and switches.
