The game offers four adventures that you chip away at by making super-simple decisions one at a time. Each time you do, the game presents the next descriptive words and choice. The challenge is to get to the end without dying. The end of the game depends on the choices you have made during your play through. Each time you die you simply go back to the beginning and start again.
You slowly learn the right choices to pick and the position of different elements in the world. It's like a text-adventure mixed with pelmanism with a dash of WarioWare and is a lot of fun regardless of reading ability.
It's a super light touch adventure game. But although it's just text, it is beautifully presented and each tap creates a musical accompaniment.
Ord is planned for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch in the future, although we are awaiting a firm date.
11+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The text based nature of the game does make it better for older children. But anyone who connects to the unusual way of presenting a game world can enjoy this. You need to understand and interpret the words as well as make instinctual leaps about your word choices.
