The Wolf Among Us iOS game is a point and click adventure game in where the player is in control of the protagonist Bigby Wolf who can move about the environment, examine and interact with other characters or objects. The Wolf Among Us iOS game is similar to Telltale’s previous game, The Walking Dead and in that game, the player may make choices in their actions or through conversation trees that will influence future events in the story, including events in future episodes and these includes major decisions such as deciding which among the two culprits to chase after while allowing the other to go free. Just like “The Walking Dead” story, these choices are recorded by Telltale and the general statistics on the major choices are presented to the player after completing each episode to allow them to compare their take on the story to others. Telltale has put his efforts to make some of these choices affect parallel events within the narrative like choosing which of two people to help first and later learning from the second one that their help could have been used some- where before.
In this game, some scenes are more action-oriented that requires the player to respond to a series of quick time events and on failing to do these correctly may end the scene with the death of Bigby or another character but the game will be restarted at a checkpoint just before that scene to allow the player to try again. In some of the circumstances, failure to active particular quick time events results in minor game decisions.
