slidetoPlay 4/4 award:"MUST HAVE"
"Gene Effect is great. The levels are huge, the story is compelling, the presentation is spectacular, and the gameplay– while not without problems– is engaging and fun. Gene Effect is highly recommended for anyone looking for a good sci-fi adventure."

"It’s one of the most impressively presented iOS games I’ve played to date, and clearly a lot of work has gone into making it so visually appealing."

TheAppShack 5/5 stars
"Lightstorm3D has definitely shown that they know exactly what it takes to make an amazingly immersive, incredibly depthy game with Gene Effect. The story, gameplay, graphics, controls, music, everything about the game really stands out as top-notch."

iPhoneGamerUK 5/5 stars
"Seriously right off the bat you don’t even need to read this review, you simply need to hit the download button for this game as it is my favourite game this year so far."

iPlayApps.de Award: 8

TouchArcade by Niss Campbell
"It’s a completionist’s dream, with level trophies for speed, careful navigation, and overall score"

iFanzine.com by Sean Koch
"Once things pick up about four levels in, Gene provides a satisfying break from the action extravaganzas we’ve come to associate with sci-fi games."
