Better than expected. A must buy


It’s great when you come to a game and it’s a lot better than you thought it would be. While I enjoyed ar-k 1 and 2 and I do recommend those games to play first, this for me is a lot better - story, graphics, setting. The writing was very good and if you didn’t want to read everything, you didn’t need to click on that character’s bit of conversation but could come back to it if you wanted. I liked the humour, and it was witty in parts. It is the perfect balance of not just a good story which is vital in an adventure game but also good interactive gameplay.

You continue to play as Alicia and thankfully she is more likable. In the first episode the OTT “I am a sexy vixen” coupled with a not nice attitude a lot of the times frankly put me off her and I didn’t care what happened to her, but by the end of E1 this was mostly gone and here I actually cared and liked her.

The story continues from 1 & 2 and I loved how at the end of episodes there is just enough surprise or hook to keep you invested for the next epsiode, it is literally a cliffhanger ending (not resolved or tied up with bow) with all of them and this episode is the same.

I love the setting in this game (all new) and I got to solve a murder as well which was cool. There is also a transporter map so you aren’t wasting time walking everywhere.

While you could play this on it’s own I do think there would be too many unanswered questions (what is the sphere, why am I here etc) and I do think you need to play the first game (which has episodes 1& 2 in it) to know what is going on. There is a video intro at the beginning which is supposed to recap what has happened but I don’t know why but the clips seemed out of sequence, and they could have done a lot better job of a recap, seemed very disjointed.

I loved the achievements in the first game, very imaginative and different but here it was mostly straightforward and some more unusual ones would have been fun. There is one though which I didn’t see the point of and will be a bit annoying to do (worker one,) - so don’t go by my final time re gameplay!

Thoroughly enjoyed it and I really look forward to the fourth and final episode. Thanks DEVS for a very good, fun point´n click adventure game

The More Polished 3rd Episode Delivers the Same Charm as the Previous Ones


Anyone who has played the episodes one and two will immediately notice the improvements to graphics and user interface as well as overall polish in this third part, which was published separately. The feeling of the world and the characters is the same, if not better than before.

There are still a couple of vague puzzles but people shouldn’t have many reasons to nitpick. If they like the comedic sci-fi setting, the spunky protagonist and have any interest knowing what will happen to the people of A-RK, they definitely should be very pleased to play this game.

Now it’s all about waiting for the finale to get the full experience at once.
This episode gets a 4+

Time Played: 5-10 hours
