Innovative comic-game combo, but the story is confusing.

IMAGINARY RANGE HD makes use of the iPad in an interesting way, combining a manga comic with interactive portions that allow you to search for hidden icons and look for objects to complete the story. Although it feels like you may be able to change the story with different objects, the story itself is locked in place until you find the correct object to use. The story is somewhat confusing, with over-the-top battle scenes and giant weapons created by imagination. At certain key points in the comic, there are mini-games that must be beaten in order to continue with the story. Once you've read the story and beaten the games, you can play extended versions of three mini-games, as well as spend coins earned (in the mini-games and by finding hidden icons) for "scratch tickets," which will reveal behind-the-scenes sketches.

The games are fun but not spectacular. The app itself shows promise in the future of interactive comics, but your overall reaction will be determined largely by your preference for (or against) manga-style comics.
