Regency Love: iPhone App

I was looking for a new mobile game to try out on the iPhone 6 a few days ago, and came across Regency Love on the app store top charts.

Experience life in the British Regency as a young gentlewoman, where you must maintain proper decorum, sharpen your wits, and find a suitable husband!

Now this is something I can play! Set aside the zombies and flying poultry: give me a ball and an enquiry as to¬†the health of my family, and I’m in game heaven!

It’s very much a ‘choose your own adventure’ style game, a welcome¬†flashback to my childhood.¬†Essentially, you are given a set of answers to choose from when conversing with other characters. These answers set you off on your personal path to romance and finding a ‘suitable husband’.

I’ll admit, there were points where I had butterflies, worried¬†my chosen answer would rob me of that elusive engagement.¬†I got very carried away as it is pretty immersive¬†for an Austen fan¬†like me!

I don’t want to spoil things, because part of the experience is in discovering the game yourself. There is very little¬†in the way of signposting or help, but as with all well designed¬†games,¬†you get it eventually.

The artwork is beautiful and¬†fits the¬†era¬†perfectly. I even find some of the gentlemen attractive, though I don’t know if it’s testament to the artist or a horrible indictment on my grip on reality.

The only niggle¬†I have were¬†the limited questions that became repetitive over time, but that really is no problem when you’re playing – you just know the answers quicker!

The app is currently listed at ¬£2.99 on the app store. Considering the amount of effort that go into creating the app, that’s¬†a bargain.
