OPUS: Rocket of Whispers
OPUS: Rocket of Whispers is a story-driven exploration game that is packed full of emotions.
Visually, OPUS is beautiful, as the game features hand-drawn artwork that’s packed with incredible detail. While the game is rendered mostly in 2D, it utilizes a top-down perspective, so there’s a bit of depth to everything on the screen. And since the game takes place in the snowy mountains, the color palette is rather muted and gloomy with earthy tones and some soft pastels. Animations are smooth and fluid with no lag on my iPhone 7. There’s an atmospheric soundtrack in the background that is fitting for the overall theme of the game, and the sound effects are rather realistic. Overall, the developer did a great job with OPUS in terms of visual and audio design.
Since OPUS: Rocket of Whispers is a story-driven game, players will be taken through a rather emotional roller coaster from the beginning. There’s a lot of text and dialogue in OPUS due to the narrative, so a lot of reading is involved. However, the story is rather interesting, and it captures you from the get-go, though it does start off a bit slow. I also found the characters to be full of personality, even though the main character is a bit annoying due to his attitude.
The free game is for the iPhone and iPad. An in-app purchase will unlock the entire game.
