Welcome to the first ever game review article written by Hella Average Gaming!

As I was scrolling through my Twitter feed, I stumbled upon a sponsored ad for an iOS game that was giving out some free codes to redeem from the App Store. I went out on a limb, and boldly asked for a code. The idea was to do our first review and showcase it on our weekly podcast. Within minutes, I had a response from Deeper Games, and a fresh code to redeem ‘Finn in 1989’ a story by David Cordis.

‘Finn in 1989’ is an interactive story about a young boy, Finnegan ‘Finn’ Ripley, who is lost in time. With you at the helm of life and death decisions, the story takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Fear, despair, victory, and comedy are what truly drive this story. While Finn is resting or busy with another aspect of the story, you are chomping at the bits to come back to the game.

Overall, I enjoyed the game and the story. The characters, and interactions were memorable. I had my fair share of laughs with the jokes and references from that time period, and it really brought on the nostalgia, which I am a huge fan. The story was robust, full of details, and engaging. Being able to make decisions, that in normal cases I probably would never make, really made this game quite a bit of fun. The UI was simple, clean, and I enjoyed the back and forth banter with the character.
