This review of Framed contains the following information:
Our Reviewer played the game for several hours.
In Framed, players navigate their character through a series of comic-book style scenes where they must avoid capture from the police and eventually deliver a briefcase to its destination. Each screen has several frames, or cells, that show a different part of the story. Players need to rearrange the frames (holding and dragging them into position) to create the correct narrative, and then press play. The scenes will then play out like a movie and continue onto the next section, but only if the frames are in the right order. If they are not in the right order, it will still play out, but your character will be captured. In some scenes, frames will need to be moved multiple times (in real time) in order to avoid capture.
Framed is a highly stylised ‘comic book style’ illustrated app. The opening scene to this game shows a gun being fired and a man lighting a cigarette. He peeks through blinds and sees red and blue flashing lights outside. He then picks up a briefcase and runs from the police. Why the gun was fired, the contents of the briefcase and why he’s running from police are not explained in any way. Some parents may be concerned, in the absence of context, that their children are playing a game where they are actively helping a criminal escape the law. Even though the illustrated characters are silhouetted, their appearance and motion is very realistic and there are violent elements, such as blows to the head which knock out various police members. Due to smoking and realistic violence, this game is not suitable for children 12 and under and parental guidance is suggested for 13 – 15.
