Get it while it's still only a dollar! Or, if you're reading this and it's no longer a dollar, still get it, it's worth it. How? This app is sort of like a choose your own adventure, but better. When you first start playing, you see that a downed astronaut named Taylor is trying to contact somebody, anybody, and it just so happens that you're the only one around to hear her (well, it could be a him too, but I imagine it as a her)... Taylor talks to you or "texts" you in real time, and it's your job to help her make decisions for what she should do next...which could ultimately lead to her surviving and getting rescued, or dying, alone on a mysterious planet. There is plenty of suspense and mystery, with a lot of odd happenings on this unknown moon too. It's all in real time, so when Taylor goes to sleep it takes quite a few hours for her to wake up and the story to progress, but once you beat it (including if you die early on) you can choose the option to have no delays at all. However a lot of people seem to like the wait because it is more immersive and makes it feel even more real. You also have the option to go back and make different choices at any point in the game. All in all its a very good choose your own adventure game, and worth the few dollars to support the devs for making such an emotional and immersive story/game.

Again I found it on top games on play store, the game goes through a story and you just choose how the story goes, like the in "80 days" (check that game out if you like storyline games). In the game you just choose one of the two given option to let the story go on. And one more thing, the game does not allows you to play continuously, keeps on saying" taylor is busy " he is the one who you choose the options for.
Lifeline is a playable, branching story of survival against all odds. You will help Taylor make life or death decisions, and face the consequences together. Acclaimed writer Dave Justus (Fables: The Wolf Among Us) weaves a gripping interactive story through the aftermath of a crash landing on an alien moon. Taylor is stranded, the rest of the crew are dead or missing, and Taylor’s communicator can only reach you.
A totally unique experience enabled by modern devices, this story plays out in real time. As Taylor works to stay alive, notifications deliver new messages throughout your day. Keep up as they come in, or catch up later when you’re free.
Or, dive in and jump back to earlier points in the story, and see what happens when you make a different choice. Simple actions can have a profound effect. Complete any single path to restart the story and unlock this mode.
Lifeline is a deep, immersive story of survival and perseverance, with many possible outcomes. Taylor is relying on YOU.

Praise for Lifeline:
“I’ve played many games that I find engrossing, but Lifeline may be one of the first that changed the way I thought about my daily routine, which leapt off the screen and became a part of my lived experience.” - Eli Cymet, Gamezebo
“I cared – really cared – about the fate of a completely fictional character. I don’t think any other game I’ve played has made me feel that way before.” - Matt Thrower, PocketGamer
