Review of Simon the Sorcerer

Rating by Lagomorph posted on May 25, 2016

The puzzles don't half pong

While I did like Simon's character and some of the humor, overall I found this game to be rather disappointing. The puzzles were largely uninteresting, boiling down to basic item fetching and combining items in ways that make little logical sense. One in particular, involving a druid, is among the most nonsensical I've seen in a game. The world is presented in a very open and unfocused manner, making the game even more difficult. The story is bare bones and the supporting characters forgettable. The artwork is nothing special either. Overall, Simon the Sorcerer feels like a poor imitation of LucasArts.

Review of Heaven's Hope

Rating by UruBoo posted on May 21, 2016

A wonderful game

This game is a gem. I think it is better than most Daedalic games. Great story, fun characters, good voice acting (I see a lot of reviewers complain about voice acting lately but, come on, do they want Al Pacino, Robert de Niro and what else to do the job?). I enjoyed very much the game. And hope the developers bring more of this kind of game.

Review of Memoria

Solid, traditional, full length Adventure Game

This is a really good, true Adventure Game. I like hard puzzles, and I wouldn't say this qualifies as "very hard", but it's very well balanced. It's just enough to stump you for a while, but not enough that you HAVE to go to a walkthrough. That's a very fine line, and they really do it well. There's a good variety of puzzles. It feels like the game really paces itself and adds good Adventure Game variety nicely and doesn't end too soon. The story and characters start out kinda weird, maybe it's the German sensibility, but it was kinda nice after a while to not necessarily go through the same exact format of American fantasy stories. All in all, this is a really well done adventure game every old school fan of the genre would enjoy. It feels like the old games, without all the hand holding and "casualness" of current games that the writers at AdventureGamers seem to love. The graphics are hand drawn and gorgeous.

Review of Technobabylon

Get ready for a narrative rollercoaster

Well this story sure has its twists. It's great to see that the predictable path is not the one the heroes decide to walk on. There are some nice choices you can make along the way and they lead to a nice ending. Some puzzles are more difficult than others but they are usually tide around the story. A nice game that builds upon the awesome reputation of Wadjet Eye Games

Review of P.O.L.L.E.N.

Short game with a handful of puzzles that's only mildly more interactive than a walking simulator and functions mostly as a demo for VR

Ones again I played a game before the review. I realy have to learn from my mistakes one of these days. After a hour or four of frustration I decided to finish the game quickly useing an online walkthrough. Hours of my life thrown away I will never get back.

Review of Nicolas Eymerich The Inquisitor: Book I - The Plague

Rating by Cheshire Cat posted on Apr 19, 2016

Avoid like the plague

Much as I wanted to see what happens next, I got annoyed with the gameplay and deleted the game before finishing it. I couldn't for the life of me find the appropriate pixel in order to progress futher and just lost it. Two-stars rating is only for the good writing and an interesting story, everything else is nerve-wracking: slow walking, dated graphics, bugs, the overacting which makes the game sound like a parody, constant repeating of the same annoying overacted lines whenever you click on the same object while hopelessly trying to hit another pixel nearby. There was even a trial and error puzzle where you have to find a particular book among a hundred of them and whenever you pull the wrong one from the shelf, which is inevitable to happen for at least 20 times (if you're really lucky), you hear the same painfully slow line over and over again informing you that it is the wrong one in the tone of voice announcing the Apocalypse. So, yeah, don't waste your time.
