Stories in Friends Forever Stories come slightly more animated than the counterparts in this genre with the 2D character sprites often walking into the scene and making gestures during the course of dialogue. It’s a nice little touch and makes it feel more like an interactive piece rather than just a dialogue based story.

Choices in Friends Forever Stories came in hard and fast adopting a many small choices approach to story telling with players often picking the majority of replies for their character. While this means the majority of your choices don’t have a large impact on the story direction it keeps you engaged constantly. You’ll find the majority of these “choices” are generally just different ways to say the same thing so that the story can follow along the set story path.

Each story is split into several dozen chapters which usually coincides with a change in location or before the story shifts to a new pivotal point. After each of these chapters you’ll be greeted with an ad and a reward of gold coins which can be used to unlock extra stories.

There is also a limiting factor on starting each chapter which uses a different currency that can be refreshed with purchases or ad watching. Given you already have to watch an ad after each chapter and the constant banner ads at the top of the story this extra layer feels unnecessary and can really detract from the experience as it constantly breaks the flow of the story.

Summary:

  • Various stories to be a part of.
  • Make regular small decisions on how your character reacts.
  • Multiple locations in each story.
  • Animated characters to bring dialogue to life.
  • Free to play for iOS and Android.
