OXENFREE App Reviews

Truly mind blowing

If you love parallel universe, time loops, and puzzles, this is a must-download

Beautiful Art

The artwork, story line and characters are so rich. This is truly a masterpiece. I’ve not yet finished the game but I am halfway through and I’d like to warn upcoming buyers that the game drains your battery like a vampire! It’s not that big of a deal but it’s not the kind of game you play during school if you want to save your battery or have your phone make it through the end of the day!

Amazing game

I urge you to get this game it is worth every penny it has enough mystery to intrigue you and a good story that makes you choose your own adventure your choices matter in this game greatly

Please fix the crashing!

I want to give this a 5-star rating because it is a phenomenal game and I'm so impressed with how well crafted this game translates into playability for an iPhone. UNFORTUNATELY, the game continues to crash and I have been unable to play beyond 5AM. Developers! Please update this so that we can continue to fall in love with this game and I can give this the rating it deserves.

The Greatest Game of 2016

I seriously can not and will not ever understand why this game is so underrated. IT'S PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First the characters: something about them just makes it feel like they're real. They're phenomenal! Now the plot: when you first read the plot, it sounds cliché. But I've played it 7 times(no joke!), and not once did I think that it's cliché. Everything good about this game creates a charm that eradicates the thought. So, do I recommend Oxenfree? Yes. Yes I do. I'LL RECOMMEND IT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE IF I WAS TOLD TO! Spoilers below: By the way, I think Ren and Nona are adorable together :-)


Throughout the gameplay I kept admiring how magnificent this game is. However, the game kept crashing and at the 5AM scene where the main characters are on their way to rescue Clarissa, I can't frigging play because it continues to crash and sends me back to home screen every single time. I DO NOT want such a masterpiece to be WASTED for a ridiculous reason. I hope the developers would fix the bug soon so that I can change my review into 5 stars and finish the story. Thank you.

Game was different from my expectations.

The graphic is spectacular like high-quality animation movie. but the game is so boring to me it was different from my expectations. I thought this game would be like spooky/adventure but no.. it wasn't. I regret purchasing this game..


It was a very good looking game ... but it was so darn confusing! The characters would talk over each other , the music was so loud at times that you comedy hear the conversations that your character was having... it was just ... ugh .. was it creepy? Yes , yes it was. But at the end of the game I really don’t feel as though my “decisions” changed anything. If I were to sum the game up in three words it would be confusing , frustrating, and unoriginal.

Great Story

Loved the pacing. It never felt padded, or like I was running around aimlessly, solving puzzles just to solve them. Visuals and sounds were fantastically atmospheric. Characters are all well-done and complex enough that I'm still not sure how I feel about one of them (Jonas) in the end. The story itself is the best part, but I'd rather not spoil it. My only criticism is that the timing of some of the speech prompts is occasionally clunky. Enough to mention, but not enough to take away a whole star (I'd take half if I could.)

Beautiful graphics, can’t stand the background music

I’m only a short way into the game, but I can’t continue because I can’t stand the background music. First of all, it’s too loud, so it’s not in the background. Also, it’s not melodic or interesting at all; just noise to me. Please make an option to turn off the background music.

Great game but...

I’d love iPhone X support please!


Ok the characters, story, and just everything is all so well done. I’m so sad there is no oxenfree 2...speaking of oxenfree 2, please make one. Get this app it’s so worth it. I love these types of games. I play a ton of these types of games but this game is by far #1 on my list. I love it please make another:)

Amazing/but one issue

My one and only criticism is that you don’t have a lot of time to choose a response, and when you do then you talk over someone else who’s already talking (not all the time do this happen). Skybound is usually good with decision based games associated with dialogue (TellTale Series) This game is simply amazing. The story is so rich and engaging, that it’s down right a treat to play. I’m currently on my fourth play though of the game. It has multiple endings which make it have great replay value. I own this game on both my iPhone, and iPad. I recently purchased it again for Nintendo Switch where it’s so much better to control. Do yourself a favor... buy this game!

Crashing Issues

As far as I've played the game, I have loved every second. A lot of times, the game crashed in-between loading screens. It wasn't a big issue, as it saved beforehand and I could continue the game normally. But at the Fallout Bunker/ Cave Entrance around 5 AM, it keeps crashing as soon as it finishes loading, and I'm stuck there now. Please fix this so I can finish the game!

Please make it full screen on iPhone X

Please make it full screen on iPhone X! It’s gonna be gorgeous!

Waste of $5

A choose your own adventure where all you do is decide which of several snarky things to say. Stupid "game" and waste of $5.

All good except for 5am glitch

Can't get passed the 5 AM point. Game crashes every time. I've tried everything, even deleting ur game and replaying the entire thing up to this point and it crashes. It's the 5am epiphany fields area that crashes every time I turn the game on and try to continue playing. EASE HELP!!! Desperate to finish the story!

I guess I’m too old, yet...

...I guess I’m getting prudish because a character talks of bringing drugs to do on the island and they meet another character who smokes. Bleh. If you don’t talk like a teenager, the conversation will grate on you. I like how you can steer the conversation tone and the radio mech is an interesting twist. Basically I think this game will appeal to people who like to complain a lot and cause trouble. Sorry to be harsh.

I guess it was ok

After reading the reviews I guess my expectations were a little too high. I played both games Broken Age and Til Mornings Light which were both awesome, and as I played OXENFREE I kept those comparisons in mind. As a result, I felt the game ended weirdly and the the overall content and player involvement was as strong in comparison to the others. In OXENFREE, the interactions with the objects appeared pointless at times because the main character would only talk about the objects but nothing further. However, the game was pleasant and did keep me intrigued to continue to play.

Game Crashing

I love the game, but it won't stop crashing. It no longer allows me to continue to play. I have been waiting to see if the game was unfinished or something, but I seem to not be the only person with this issue. We cannot go any further after it shows the 5am sign. I am very disappointed because I payed a lot of money for this app when games are usually free or 0.99 or 1.99. I expect that the game makers will address these issues.

Looove this game, but

I really love this game as it’s one of the few roleplaying games that has a lot of different endings. The storyline’s great! The voice acting is top notch, I just have noticed a few things. With the new Broadcasting option on mobile, I was signed out of my YT account several times during the Broadcast. And when I tried recording it, I used the Save to Camera Roll option only I can’t find the video log anywhere. Hopefully these little bugs will get fixed soon! :)

Play it more than once

This game is so amazing so I played it again... and it is so genius that it puts the playing again into the story. The only part I do not like is how you have to constantly go from one place to another tapping the whole way gets annoying... So gonna make a part 2 or what?

Best Game Ever!!!

This is the best game ,< story>, music , art, sub-plot, hidden surprises, etc, I’ve ever played on the iPad. The only bad thing I can say about it is that I’m totally hooked on all things Oxenfree and know that a follow up would likely be a year or more wait. More Night School.. and get a move on it!

Fun, but can't complete because game keeps crashing

Aside from the crashing, this has been a really fun game to play. The problem is, it crashes often when I move to a new location. Usually it saves first, so it's not too big of a deal (I have to wait for the app to load again), but I've reached a point near the end of a game where I try to enter the cave, but it crashes when loading the scene every time. I've played through the same scene five times, and it crashes at the same place every time. So basically I'm unable to finish the game. Maybe it would load ok if I start over and play through the entire game again, but I don't feel like going through all of that trouble just to see if it'll work correctly the second time I get there. Im very disappointed, because it sounds like there would otherwise be some good replay value. Since I can't have more than one save game, I guess I'll just stop playing and wait to see if the developers release a patch to fix this bug.

Surprised to see so many 5 star reviews.

Don’t get me wrong, the game had beautiful artwork, but there was no strategy or anything you had to actually figure out. I’m giving it one star solely for the fact that I do not consider this a “game.” I would call it a visual story instead. I did not feel like I accomplished “beating the game” when I was done....I just flipped to the last page of the book.

Astounding, a beautiful masterpiece

I got this game primarily because of the rave reviews as well as my personal interest in the horror/adventure genre. I went in with high expectations and yet this game still managed to absolutely blow my mind. I got so engrossed that I played for 7 hours straight just to get to the end because I couldn’t put it down. The story is fantastic, the game controls are fluid and intuitive and the artwork and app design is flawless. You can tell every single detail of the multitude of settings was meticulously and carefully designed and it’s just breathtaking. WELL worth the money, it should be more expensive honestly. 10/10 would recommend! Buy this game!!

This game is gorgeous and super spoopy.

I have to write something here.

I was stunned

I don’t play many spooky games and I definitely don’t play many indies, but I bought this because a friend said it was wonderful and it was MORE than wonderful. Not only did it thoroughly put me on edge, I loved the characters and the art and story was incredibly beautiful. I wish there was more to play, and I honestly felt really empty when I realized it was over. I can’t praise this game enough!

Felt like a movie

Omg. I cannot even begin to describe Oxenfree. If you are reading this, download it now. It will change your life forever. Even after the game had ended you will begin to think about what had happened. Was it a dream? An illusion? I don’t want to give out any spoilers, just download the game!! The beautiful and eerie landscape, the wonderful and catchy tune, everything about Oxenfree is just plain wonderful. I am so glad I found out about this game.

The best

This game is a great thriller and has a good story line to go with the choices:5 stars

Beautiful & Engaging!!

Even though it could’ve been played in one sitting, my boyfriend and I played this every night for about a week and got through a certain amount of the story each time. It’s SUCH a wonderful game – the art, the dialogue... but most importantly: the STORY. There were so many unexpected aspects to the game, and our hearts were always pounding with every twist. We definitely looked forward to playing it each night, and I can’t rave enough about how wonderful it was. I really wish there were more games like this! I’ve been looking around forever for similar ones but can’t find any that have the same unique art and aspects like this one. I’m an extremely picky person when it comes to games and their art, and I just can’t get past how perfect this one is. Easily one of my favorites!

App crashes

I can't get past 5am on my iPad. It keeps crashing. I restarted the entire game and it still crashes at 5am.

Amazing, but...

This game is absolutely astonishing. The graphics are beautiful, the story is compelling, and the characters are just... wow. I love it, so hecking much, but I have one teeensy problem. It keeps crashing, and at the worst times. I'm at (what I believe to be) the final stage. I've gotten through the all the spooky stuff, and I'm so pumped to know how it ends. But, alas, the game seems to be against me. It keeps crashing right before I go into the cave, and it doesn't even save. It's extremely disappointing because one I payed for this and was expecting it not to be all glitchy, and two I feel like I'll never get to know the end. Hopefully one of you cool cats that made this can help me?? I dunno, I hope you can though. Anywho, overall it's a great game and anyone considering getting it definitely should. The crashing things seems to be just my problem, so I'm still gonna give it five stars and all that jazz. Happy playing ladies and gents, and hopefully I'll get to know how this all plays out, yeah?

I love the game but....

The game is great I totally recommend it, whether it be the diverse and spooky story or the 1800 pages of script with a five hour plus story mode but with multiple endings you name it, but there's just one issue I've been stuck on this one start at five am after I go to alder estate it says five am but right when I go in the game crashes and I can't play I love the game soooo much but this needs to be fixed and I'd be glad to buy more of your games if you make them but this needs to be fixed first but for the people looking at the review don't question buying it just two days ago I was looking at reviews wondering whether to buy it just do it it will be the best $5 you ever spent have funnn thanks!!

Love, love, love

If you're torn about whether or not to make that purchase... JUST DO IT! Love the characters... Love the development... love that once you finish the game and start a new one that secret bits play out into the next... Would love to play more and I hope that in the future there will be more games like this. Btw... is it wrong of me that I wanted a lil love story to unfold with A & J? I NEED MORE OXENFREE!


Great game however the game keeps crashing at the scene when Alex gets to the bomb shelter... 😑

Great Game

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It’s unique and keeps you captivated. I loved the format.


Anticlimactic. Drawn out. Tedious. This game had lots of potential but just didn't hit the mark. Sadly disappointing. Such a strong build up for such little pay off with a very messy storyline.

Not compatible with my iPad Mini 😔

My current sofware is 9.3.5, and it doesn't download 😫 I haven't played it since I bought it 😩😩

Tedious...Buyer’s Remorse

The vast majority of your time in this game is spent walking or climbing between locations. If there had been a free trial I never would have purchased it.

Still crashes

Your last update says you fixed the late game crash, but on my 5s the game crashes every time I try to get into the caves via the bunker. I've tried it like 6 times, I've reset my phone. I'm super bummed, I want to be able to finish the game. I'll keep it and check for updates, if you fix it I'll update my review.

Great Story

Like the title, i loved the story and how complex the consequences of choices can make. Nothing is perfect though. There were some minor bugs that’s kinda took out my immersion in the game but it wasn’t enough for me to get bothered.

The update keeps making it crash

I got the new update like two days ago and now it won't let me get past a certain point because it keeps crashing. Please come out with a better more reliable update that actually prevents the game from crashing instead of just saying it does because the update was suppose to keep it from crashing but it's doing a really bad job of preventing it.

Amazing game

Amazing game amazing story everything about this game is amazing how you pick your own decisions and everything I recommend this game the only thing I didn't like about it was that it sucked up a lot of battery charge but it's understandable for a game that good it's worth every penny

Unstable but cool game

I love this game but it crashes a lot and I can't get it to progress past the "5:00 a.m." point in the game at all. It just crashes every time the game loads at that point. Tried hard restart, deleting and reinstalling, starting the game over from the beginning; nothing works. Still stuck at "5:00 a.m." Hoping they fix this in a future update.

Good graphics

It’s more like watching a movies. This is kit adventure game. No puzzle. You never stuck thinking what to do. The game always lead you instantly and even gives you instructions what to do either on the map or by the characters. Great graphics and dialogue but not for someone who likes the challenging adventure games.

Best freaking game ever

This game brings tears to my eyes, when I first saw it on the App Store, I knew I had to have it, To anyone who doesn’t know if they should buy it, buy it.

I friggin LOVE this game! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is probably the best choose your own story game EVER! It’s like a mixture of puzzle, horror, rpg, choose your own story, thing. What I’m trying to say it’s sort of the experience that’s worth it. Also, your choices actually count! For example just saying one measly sentence can make someone die, make someone extremely angry at you, or just make the whole world explode💥. It’s actually really hard to explain the game itself so I beg of you to buy this game, play it 24/7, and then give it five stars, then play it 24/7 AGAIN for a different ending!


You’ll hate yourself for buying this trash game. Fake reviews. Awful


I an honestly trying to find a problem with this app, its very hard to criticize because it's perfect the music and the emotion in this app drew me in the moment I opened it. AMAZING APP, TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!! I hate to be the person who says its very amazing and lists things that could be better on the app, but I honestly think there should be a chapters place we’re you can go back to where you made a mistake and fix it, i hope im not asking too much.
