Critic Reviews for A Normal Lost Phone

A Normal Lost Phone is an intimate, affecting discussion of LGBTQ+ issues—one which does not shy away from candidness—all in a handy hour-long experience.

A Normal Lost Phone is a tough game to recommend. The concept is intriguing and there's a genuinely interesting narrative at the center of the experience, but it's all so fraught by poor execution and mediocre presentation that we can hardly suggest you pick this one up. You could do a whole lot worse for three bucks, but you're also getting exactly what you pay for and nothing more. If you have some credit leftover in your account from another eShop purchase and feel like distracting yourself with a mildly entertaining adventure game, this one may be worth a look, but you'd best take a pass.

This clever mobile game assumes you're the sort to snoop through a stranger's lost phone. Sounds icky, but go with it; you won't be disappointed

A game that tries to tell a delicate story through a well-written narrative and a decent gameplay. If you don't mind reading a lot of text, and you are not bothered by a short and not replayable story, this game might be a correct choice.

A Normal Lost Phone is a thoughtful, intriguing, non-game game that I cannot recommend enough.

A Normal Lost Phone is a short experience that is different from the other games currently available on Nintendo Switch that you should definitely check out. The story is very compelling, even if the overall game feels a tad wrong since it's us invading the privacy of Sam, but it's certainly worth your time and money.

When my time with A Normal Lost Phone was finished, I had to digest it all. I was left with no more questions; the game does a good job of wrapping things up. But it's the kind of game that lingers with you, and it's one I imagine will remain with me for some time.
