An interesting phone-hacking game which draws from the player's real-world experiences to good effect.

Replica is a strong concept played out a bit too broadly for its own good, but it’s just smart – and certainly timely – enough to get away with it.

Replica offers a great interactive experience. Its story is complex, with an ability to make players reconsider all of their actions and ideals. Replica's cellphone-inspired gameplay is immersive and realistic. Unfortunately, the story is repetitive after the first playthrough and backtracking is monotonous as the narrative expands. Still, Replica creates a shocking experience for anyone who likes a good mystery.

Replica conjures a complicated totalitarian world of privacy invasion and information censorship. It’s a short game with a powerful message and definitely worth £1.99/$2.99 over on Itch.io and Steam.
