I would still recommend A Fold Apart for how much fun I had with its puzzles. Just don’t expect wonderful storytelling.

Paper puns aside, A Fold Apart is a pretty good game that is worth the time and money if you can look past the overly dramatic story. It is definitely one of the more unique games available right now and the puzzles are sure to keep you occupied!

As a whole, it was a beautifully presented experience in human relationships in a time where it’s easy to feel disconnected from each other, whether that’s due to physical distance or other less tangible barriers.

A Fold Apart ends before it manages to make the most of its genuinely unique puzzle mechanics. It feels like there should have been another chapter to the game, really diving into the ingenious mesh of puzzle elements that too often require little more than a few seconds of trial and error to solve. The story A Fold Apart tells is a powerful one, unfortunately undercut by the way it is delivered at times but a beautiful piano soundtrack and art style that’s deeper than it first appears helps it stick the landing.

Heck, if you are just looking for something good to play and don’t know what to grab next, prioritize A Fold Apart.

A charming puzzler that makes up for some occasionally awkward design with a simple yet intensely personal and emotional narrative

A Fold Apart was a charming gaming experience with a story true to what being in a long-distance relationship can be like. I love its art style and graphics and its unique way of doing puzzles. I also loved the unexpected feature to choose the gender of your characters.

A Fold Apart goes on a sadly well populated pile of games that suffer from “good idea, poor execution”. The use of perspective gameplay gels well with an interesting idea for a story. But the gameplay is less than fun, and the story loudly and busily goes nowhere. Not quite up to scratch I’m afraid.

A Fold Apart stands apart from its indie puzzler peers thanks to a heartwarming story and some truly innovative paper riddles.

A Fold Apart has some nice moments in its narration but the other parts don’t really stand out that much and it’s very short.

A Fold Apart is full of emotion and heart that you can feel in the story. Additionally, the story can help people understand what their significant others go through when miscommunication happens. That empathy-building is to be commended. While the game isn’t perfect, it is charming and makes for a relaxing playthrough, especially as some are separated from their partners while the world is in self-quarantine.

Minor technical and control issues aside, A Fold Apart is a game we won't soon forget and comes easy to recommend.

A Fold Apart is an enjoyable time, but I feel like it’s promoted in a slightly deceiving way. It’s not a cutesie upbeat game about two people missing each other. In fact, it’s a serious look into the hardships of being in a long distance relationship and how quickly things can go wrong when you can’t express yourself properly.
