The Dark Room - Critical reception - Netflix
TouchArcade gave the game a rating of 4 out of 5, writing, “It's a strange little thing, to be sure, but I'd definitely recommend A Dark Room to people who appreciate off-beat RPGs, fans of experience-driven games, or really anyone looking for something a little bit different from usual.” Slide to Play rated it 3 out of 4, commenting, “It may not seem like much at first, but if you stick around long enough, it's easy to fall under A Dark Room's spell.” 148Apps gave the game 3 out of 5, writing, “A Dark Room may have plenty of longevity and may be genuinely intriguing, but its interface feels undeveloped in its iOS iteration.” The New Yorker explained, “When A Dark Room was first released on iPhone, at the end of 2013, the game was listed in a number of Best of the Year lists, including those published by Forbes, Paste, and the gaming site, Giant Bomb.” The app “rocketed to the most-downloaded spot in the App Store's games section in April and stayed there throughout the month”. Engadget praised the game's surprise ending, writing that “...it's definitely worth the time it takes to find it.”
