Curiosity may have killed the cat, but thankfully the result of LOVE’s curiosity getting the better of her wasn’t lethal, or anything close to that. Instead, pressing that big red button simply teleported both her and HATE to a strange dark cave, and since it brought them there, maybe pressing it again would take them home? But unfortunately for these two, while the button was within sight, it was not immediately reachable.
Puzzle games rarely contain a deep moving plot, and this one’s no different, with a story that’s mostly there to motivate the player. That said, who can honestly say that they don’t feel sorry for these two, even if LOVE is solely to blame for this mess? As you make your way through each level, you’ll have to ‘interact’ with a variety of creatures known as OTHER ONES (what’s with all the capitalized names?), and depending on whether you use LOVE or HATE, the result will be different. For example, using HATE on might make it move away from you or even flatten it, depending on its type, while LOVE will attract, or revive it.
On top of that, throughout the more than 60 levels in About Love, Hate and the other ones, you’ll also have to deal with.. other things (ha!), which you’ll get to experience by purchasing the game from iTunes for $0.99. What are you waiting for? LOVE and HATE need your help to get back to their hill!
