Easy controls, simple graphics, and excruciatingly difficult gameplay

id=”cnetReview” section=”rvwBody” data-component=”indepthReview”> Duet Game is one of those games that’s so challenging that the frustration level is high, but when you finally succeed is that much more satisfying. Your goal is to maneuver two objects in sync past white blocks by rotating either clockwise or counterclockwise. On the surface, the concept is simple, but once you get into the game, the challenge is anything but.

Voted by The New Yorker as one of the most elegant iPhone games of 2013, Duet Game only reached into the top 100, then fell back into relative obscurity. But a recent price drop has sent it into the top 10, and with this game’s super-addictive nature, it’s likely to stay for a while.

Learn the ropes
Duet Game eases you into the gameplay mechanic with early levels that help you get used to controlling the two dots (one red, one blue). They are tethered together at opposite ends of a circle (if you picture it as a clock, the dots are at 9:00 and 3:00). As blocks float down the screen, your job is to rotate the dots simultaneously by touching warcraft the beginning left or right side of the screen, and to maneuver both dots past each obstacle. It’s hard to describe, but a glance at the screenshot at the top of this review will give you an idea of what Duet Game is all about.
