Finally, someone has answered the age old question, ‘what happens when you mix Mario with literature?’ Silent Conversation is what happens – a unique mix of reading and platforming! Each level is a poem, ranging from the super short to really long, and the words are spread out to make platforms for your letter ‘I’ to jump. To score, you have to touch as many words as you can. When you touch the last word of the piece, the level ends, giving you a score and grade. The levels that I’ve played through feature pretty serious poetry – there’s not a lot of humor.
I’ve certainly never played anything quite like Silent Conversation, and it’s an idea that works surprisingly well. Can you concentrate on reading and platforming at the same time?
