What is it about?
Visually speaking, Florence is beautiful, though I suppose that's to be expected from the lead designer of [Monument Valley](https://appadvice.com/review/quickadvice-monument-valley). The game is entirely hand drawn in a simple art style that evokes the "slice of life" aesthetic. The color palette in Florence features a nice mix of soft pastels and brighter hues, along with darker, gloomier shades. Each kind of color conveys a different meaning and emotion in Florence, so the variety that it offers is nice. Animations are smooth and fluid, so I had no issues on my iPhone 8 Plus. The soundtrack to Florence is also pretty whimsical and emotional, as it helps convey the sentiment that you're supposed to feel during particular scenes.
Why we love it
Florence is an evocative app experience that is surprisingly heartfelt without any dialogue and its quick play through. The 20 chapters only take about a half hour to get through, and yet you still feel a connection to Florence, and the journey that she goes on. The only real drawback of the app is the quick nature of it, that leaves you wanting more. This isn’t the type of experience that warrants multiple play throughs as there aren’t dialogue choices with multiple endings. It goes by fast, but a great range of craftsmanship is on display that really connects with the user. There’s also an underlying authentic and modern feel to everything depicted that you can’t help but appreciate.
