Lifeline sees you interacting with a stranded astronaut (well, Taylor isn't really an astronaut, but you'll find that out soon enough) as you try to help them from afar, and plays out something like a choose-your-own-adventure book. You are presented with a narrative and a series of decisions which you must make to determine the rest of the story.
The actual level of "interactivity" is minimal, but the way notifications are used make this game constantly surprising and perfectly suited to mobile platforms.
Lifeline has a distinct flavor that separates it from the majority of mobile titles being released. If you're tired of repetitive "match three" type puzzle games, you should consider giving this – or its sequels – a try.
