Gemini Rue launches on iOS today

Features redesigned combat and a hotspot finder.

Joshua Nuernberger and Wadjet Eye Games' cult-classic sci-fi noir point-and-click adventure Gemini Rue has launched today on iOS.

It's currently on sale for £2.49 / $3.99, but will go up to its standard price of £2.99 / $4.99 after two weeks.

The iOS version features enhancements like larger in-game icons and text, a hotspot finder to minimise pixel-hunting, and a redesigned combat system. It also includes the original game's optional developer commentary and "gritty, low-res graphics."

Gemini Rue originally launched in 2011 to rave reviews. Ex-Eurogamer scribe Kristen Reed dug it. "If you're done with all the remakes, and hanker after an adventure that remembers exactly the way things were, Gemini Rue demands your attention," he wrote in his 8/10 Gemini Rue review.
