Review of The Wolf Among Us

Rating by NeanderthalZ posted on Mar 1, 2017

5 star material

I've read Fables before I've played that game and I loved what Telltale did with the characters. It was awesome that they decided to place the story before the events of the first comic books cos they'd have plenty of room to develop the characters. The soundtrack, the voice acting and the character designs are flawless but, unfortunately, sometimess your choices have no influence at all on the plot. If it wasn't for that, I'd have rated it 5 stars. I hope Telltale stick with Fables and maybe develop a Jack Horner game. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Full Throttle

Rating by NeanderthalZ posted on Mar 1, 2017

Instant classic

This game is an instant classic. The main character is the typical charismatic badass, the soundtrack is amazing, the voice acting is superb and the storyline is as good as it gets. Even though the puzzles might not be very challenging, which makes the game kinda short, the plot is good enough to make it worth. It's an awesome introduction for beginners in the genre. Still hoping that Telltale pick it up and make a decent sequel. Time Played: 1-2 hours

Review of Normality

First proper 3D adventure, that worked

I wont give any of the game story away but to say that playing the 3D shooters of the same time helped a lot in getting to grips with the movement in this great game. It incorporated an options interface that when you clicked on something of interest you could do several actions. Some of the puzzles were a little out there but it was definitely immersive! I spent a good chunk of my miss-spent youth on this gem. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of The Oracle

Immersive environments, decent puzzling, fun game

This is a hidden gem, only to be located through extensive pixel-hunting. I'm glad to see that it's not only listed on this site, but it has also been reviewed--and favorably, at that. The photos may be tacky but if so, they're delightfully tacky. Actually, the developer, Eugene Couto, did a really good job of using photos to build the game world. The areas were genuinely enjoyable to explore and--this is important--I was always looking forward to getting to the next area. It's important because it adds another level of motivation to solving puzzles. It's especially important in a game like this where there isn't a whole lot of story development. That said, there's a story. It's not very deep, it's not original, but it's engaging enough. It does the trick. It's a very short game anyway. I wish there were more to interact with. I also wish that the other characters had a greater presence so it didn't feel quite so lonely. You can tell a good amount of thought went into the puzzle design, although I can't say it's all that original. Still, the puzzles are relatively logical. It's not a hard game by any means but it's challenging enough that finding the solutions is usually satisfying. I would have preferred a slightly harder difficulty. The beauty of the game is in the photos. A lot of people are immediately turned off by photos but when they're done right, they can create a highly immersive environment. I can nitpick a little bit but overall, I think it was done right. It doesn't look like Mr. Couto just walked around his neighborhood and took pictures and put them in the game. It looks like he planned everything out, carefully took the photos like a pro, and then properly touched them up (which I've heard takes a lot more work than it seems). I really like the music, but I was already a huge fan of the chillout genre. It's pretty rare to hear that type of music in a game. This game allows for a few solid hours of adventure gaming. Anyone who isn't repulsed by the use of photos instead of graphic art should give it a whirl. Add this to your list of Point And Click Adventures To Play Before You Die. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Kathy Rain

Rating by SirVladimir posted on Feb 6, 2017

A must play for every adventures fan.

90's style adventure with awesome female protagonist.Meet Kathy Rain,young journalism student / biker chick on a personal quest to find out what happened to her grandfather whom she haven't seen in 15 years.A quest that will uncover secrets involving her family and bring out some of her own demons. Story is gripping from start to finish.Told with lovely retro style pixel graphics.Music is also done in retro style.Game is fully voiced over and sounds great.Every character sounds convincing. Game puzzles are logical and feel like a part of the story. Only minus I can think of is that the ending left some questions unanswered for me,but I am really hoping for a sequel that will answer them. I really see no reason you shouldn't try this game. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok

Rating by emric posted on Jan 27, 2017

Warms and thrills my QfG-loving heart

This free game is in fact a fully realised point'n'click adventure which I think rivals even the best commercial entries in the genre. It is a wondrous passion project and beautiful homage to Sierra's classic Quest for Glory series. The production values are what you'd expect from a professional release in every conceivable way. Players are treated to glorious 2D art, fully voiced charcaters with commendable performances, beautifully orchestrated score and superb writing, world building and overall game design. And it's what I'd call a 'full-length' adventure. So many point'n'clicks nowadays (especially free ones) are quite short, but Heroine's Quest took me 25 hours which provides ample opportunity to feel deeply immersed in its world. And of course there's 2 more character classes should I decide to play through again sometime down the track. I'm a QfG fan from way back, particularly 1 & 4. Heroine's Quest crafts an original story drawing on Norse mythology and takes all its design cues from the very best of QfG1 & 4, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the result. I dare to say that it's just as good as both of these classic games of the genre. Time Played: Over 20 hours

Review of Memoranda

Rating by -ma- posted on Jan 27, 2017

Quirky and beautiful, yet a bit unsatisfying...

Illogical solutions that can evoke frustration for some. Still, most of the time, I find that these add to the game's quirkiness. Overall, it is a unique, surreal, interesting and incredibly beautiful game that, unfortunately, feels quite unpolished storywise. Still, I find it worth playing due to its unique beauty and surrealistic atmosphere. Time Played: 10-20 hours
