Soul Trapper Ep. 1 Chapters 1 - 4 PREVIEW I've written glowingly of this game in the past, but the $7.99 asking price has put some of you off. I paid that price originally, only to find the price dropped to around $2.99 within the next few hours (btw, it went back up to $7.99 and has stayed there ever since, so don't expect another price drop). Despite paying that higher price, I have never complained because the game truly is worth every single last penny and more, IMHO. For those that don't know, Soul Trapper is an adventure game, but within the relatively unique and uncommon audio adventure subgenre. There are no "graphics" so to speak (you are, however, given still images that are pretty high quality artworks in their own right), as instead the gameplay is aural in nature. You are given auditory cues and clues and have to perform actions onscreen (usually button presses) to match the given timing, directions, etc. As it is an adventure game, the story takes center stage, and I can state that the story in Soul Trapper is, aside from a few minor issues, quite stellar and one of the best, if not THE best, found on the iTouch/Phone platform. The voice acting is top notch, and the way the story plays out, and how the lead character is revealed little by little to be more than a cliche "tough guy" and instead a more rounded, and even tragic character, ranks among the best I've experienced in a game from 2008. This particular episode is just one of many planned in the Soul Trapper series, and while I usually shy away, and warn others away from, episodic game content, Soul Trapper Ep. 1 does it right as it is entirely self contained. The story here is told from beginning, to middle, to end, and you need not buy any future episodes to get the "end" of this particular one. Instead, the future releases will delve further into the main character with different "cases", similar to the DS's Ace Attorney series of adventure games. There are those on the fence over the very idea of an audio game, but this type of gameplay isn't new. Others have tread these waters to varying degrees of success, but I find that Soul Trapper is a helluva introduction to this type of gameplay. And since this new lite version is out, for free...what's to lose? You try it out, see if you like it. I recommend at least trying it out.
