New all-time low for this Metacritic 78% game.

I've been tempted for a while but the previous best is seen was a fiver which I couldn't write bring myself to pay for a game with only 2-3 hours of content (It's been £3.49 a couple of times since.)

It's also played in portrait mode which is novel. Not sure if you can play on the big screen.

Building on the terrifying legacy of the Weeping Angels, first encountered in the iconic story “Blink”, Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins is a thrilling found-phone mystery developed by the award-winning creators of Sara Is Missing and SIMULACRA.

Amidst a sinister series of events at a seemingly abandoned house in London, someone goes missing, and you find their phone. When it begins to self-destruct, ex-UNIT scientist Petronella Osgood enlists your help to uncover hidden clues and solve cryptic puzzles. Will you unravel the truth behind the chilling disappearance before it’s too late? But remember: don't turn your back, don't look away and DON’T BLINK.


Picking up where the iconic episode “Blink” left off, the Weeping Angels are back to unleash terror once again…


Confront an evil like never before. No phone is safe!


Work alongside Petronella Osgood (played by Ingrid Oliver) to investigate mysterious events. Also features Finlay Robertson as Larry Nightingale and a special appearance by Jodie Whittaker as the voice of the Doctor.


Search through messages, emails, videos, photographs and more to uncover clues, solve puzzles and reveal the truth.

    Recently watched a YouTube video of someone playing all Doctor Who games (think it was Good Vibes Gaming) and they said this is a very good game

    Is it worth that do you think? 78% is a fairly good score and I thought I'd have curiosity value although I can't imagine I'd replay it once done
