Review of Murder in Tehran's Alleys 1933


Rating by SamuelGordon posted on Aug 7, 2017


Only play when you are that desperate


What a horrible game! (only) Bad : Lots of bugs: The amount of times i had to reload an earlier save game because the game froze! Yes i was that desperate because i was curious as who the killer was. Terrible gameplay: you have to pick a certain item or do something else (for no reason whatsoever) or the game doesn't progress! God the pain! Translation is bad but it's doable. The MC's body model does not look like the one in the comic cutscenes (gray hair, thinner,etc..). Terrible ending. Conclusion: avoid it! I have no idea how this ever got greenlighted on Steam, such a terrible product. There's also a sequel but no way i'll try that one. Time Played: 5-10 hours
Difficulty: Hard

Review of Conarium

Forgettable


Good: - Decent graphics, uses the unreal engine - Good voice acting - Great scenery, the statues were really creepy Bad: - Hardly any puzzles and way too easy - Inventory selection to solve puzzles is done automatically - Typical Cthulhu story with an abrupt ending - Too short - Not scary Conclusion : If you are looking for puzzles/story you won't find it here. The environments are great and the voyage to the underground caves is interesting but ultimately forgettable. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of Thimbleweed Park

Started great but ruined by a chaotic storyline and meta shenanigans


Spoilers ahead! Good: - Great graphics, i'm a sucker for pixels. - Great voiceacting - Retro text option! - Love the "normal/hard" choice! - Some fun eastereggs for the more veteran adventure players Bad : - You could solve puzzles and acquire items that you don't need at that point in the story which creates a chaotic gameplay. Also the check list is a really bad help tool when you are stuck in the game as some quests can only be done in a different chapter or end of the game (e.g: dad's redemption, fingerprint chuck,etc..). Also some illogical puzzles and bugs. - The dialog options are sometimes over the top. I always cringed when they talked about adventure games/Lucasarts. - What's up with the story? I had the impression the murder story didn't pan out so they went all matrix which failed horribly! I mean they could've implented it much better in the story, but instead it made every chapter pretty much pointless. - Terrible locations. All dead. The music doesn't help either. The map you use to travel around is horribly made, it looks like it was made in MS Paint. Oh yes, they used the empty dead locations as part of the storyline..yeah right, they probably ran out of money/time. - Uninteresting characters. Everyone in town was so bland. The playable characters too except maybe Ransome and Delores. Conclusion : The story really bombed. The puzzles are decent. The characters are boring. It is still worth it? No, i say skip it and go play Monkey Island 2. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of Désiré


Rating by Arthur posted on Jul 20, 2017


A game about human nature


Désiré offers a totally different experience than other games, because it interacts with you and makes you create a link with the raw consciousness of the characters. Yes, he's not perfect, he's only human. I read other reviews and it's easy to judge the faults of people. Topics which reflect all people in this society feel misunderstood and are victims of discrimination. Life in a very real, crudely and openly displayed. The gameplay is simple and effective. I recommend to play when you are very concentrated and very patient, because all dialogs are useful (puzzles, messages, hidden messages...). And the music is very beautiful (only piano), especially the song of the second chapter. The game just turned the soul! Congratz to devs. Maybe the game will deserve a film adaptation to reach a larger public. Time Played: 5-10 hours

Review of Full Throttle Remastered

Back to the future


FT was one of my favorite adventures of all time and always included in my top 5 list of memorable games back from the old good days. Having said that, I could certainly not resist playing it again after all these years and in a remastered version, nonetheless. And as soon as I'd started submerging myself in FT's world of finest quality everything started coming back to me: the engaging game-play, the well written scenario, the clever humor, the original characters and the overall satisfaction of travelling along with Ben, the protagonist, all the way to the very end because it WORTH. My age affected only one thing: the ease with which I could solve the puzzles and win the arcades; I do remember having much more trouble dealing with those when I first played it at the age of 21. To cut a long story short, one of the best adventure games ever. Fully recommended to all young adventurers who seek to find the essence of adventure games. Time Played: 2-5 hours

Review of The Perils of Man


Rating by thorn969 posted on Jul 7, 2017


Easy but buggy interesting short outing


This game was very short. And quite easy. Pretty much all the puzzles were of the pixel hunting variety, although occasionally you were required to put together relatively simple facts. It sometimes seemed to be trying to be educational. I didn't like the inventory system and the tracking was occasionally off. The hints tended to be weak and unhelpful. But the biggest problem was in terms of bugs. I played on PC; I don't know if these problems also exist on iOS. I didn't run across any game-stopping bugs, but frequently the game would allow you to do things in a wrong order that screwed up later aspects. The biggest example was that I didn't actually find the Mark III Risk Atlas, the second, improved Risk Atlas and the game kept going with everyone acting as if I had found the improved Risk Atlas. In a tracking bug, I was able to walk across a room without entering the room so the camera didn't follow my character. Some cutscenes stopped playing or lines of dialogue got cut off without me pressing anything also. The game did try for profundity and... I'm not sure it really achieved it. Could it achieve it in about 4 hours of playtime? The premise of the Risk Atlas and foreknowledge and time travel and its potential consequences were interesting... I definitely feel the game didn't do enough to attach us to the characters for a PC adventure game. The ending was... I think unsatisfying for me. I think we should have been given more choices and more opportunity to consider potential consequences. Isn't that what the game is all about? Time Played: 2-5 hours
