A short easy tale with a twist


I decided to add this title to my collection after reading the stellar review on this site and seeing its easy availability on Steam coupled with an attractively low price. My interest was piqued even though the comedic genre is usually one which I avoid.

On starting the game, I was struck by the simplicity of the design and the very good voice work. The graphics are late 80’s pixels and entirely effective for the style of game. The voicework is just right for the type of game too, with an Essex accented character. At least I think it’s Essex, certainly the area East of London anyway.

Content wise, the game is quite basic, with just a few easy puzzles and 4 fully playable screens, with 2 more employed during intro and cut scenes. Puzzles are extremely easy and none will require any head-scratching. In fact, as there are so few locations, trying everything on anything would only take a short time for anyone who does somehow manage to get stuck. Thus I’d say this title would make a great introduction to adventure game newbies, though not young kids as there are a few strong expletives thrown in for good measure.

As already mentioned, while this is not my favourite type of game, I enjoyed it and this was perhaps due to the short length (1 hour) meaning it didn’t outstay its welcome.

3.5 stars as in spite of the length and simplicity, the price is low, the concept is clever and I did have an hour of fun.

Short and sweet


I’d love to see this concept made into a longer game, there are so many things they could do with the changing heads! I really enjoyed this, a rare game where the humour wasn’t just irritating.

Not that good


The voice acting was good, the music was OK, the story wasn’t bad though a bit shallow.
But the game overall wasn’t that good ... Something was amiss. Nothing memorable about it.
