You play as Reza, a photojournalist, where you get caught up by two opposing sides of the revolution. The fates of those around you hinge on the consequences of your choices.

Unlike anything you’ve played before, 1979 Revolution immerses players into a moving and engaging experience where a documentary and a game come together.

Very good games designed with high level graphics but it is dedicated only to the person with great capacity in their iPhone.

The game is really done right. They have translated It in many languages but still lack the Italian language. Too bad. It would have been five full stars.

The Game is briliant. The Story is so exciting the Man can't stop, it's really recommended. I can't complain super implemented

Laggy as heck (iPad Air). History is difficult to familiarise itself with, you do not have enough background information to be able to make a decision.

Incredibly captivating. I am excited. So I learn something about a Time I've never dealt with otherwise. It's more of an interactive Movie than a Game, but it's impressive!

For all those who want to experience a true Story and understand the Background of many Things in the World, this is the only right thing to do here. A small Diamond under the whole Plunder here.

I found it lacking in gameplay, controls, graphics and storytelling. It seems like you're playing a rushed early access which still needs a lot of polishing. That said, I learned stuff about Iran, which I believe is the purpose of this game. That's definitely a point in favour. Overall, it's nice but too expensive.
