Gods Will Be Watching


Stars - 50

Rating by TrevimusPrime posted on Dec 12, 2015 | edit | delete


Excellent and a must play


Challenging, infuriating but very rewarding. GWBW is a puzzle game, where you have to make all the hard choices. People may (and probably wiill) die, depending on the actions you take.

Reasons to buy:
Different scenarious, each with variantions on how to complete them
Difficulty settings, ranging from Narrative only, to Classic (how its meant to be played)
Good amount of experimentation, to see what will work, and what wont
Interesting story, that gets rather meta

Reasons to not buy:
Not for the impatient
Chapter 5 is weak in comparison to the rest

I would fully recommend puchasing,

AlternativA

Painfully Unfinished


Painfully unfinished, Alternativa may be the worst point and clink game Ive played in years. Firstly, the game crashes a lot. This can be remedied by running in as an admin, but the game will still however crash sometimes during cutscenes (which it did during the bloody ending credts).

Some puzzles are nonsensical (the very first for example) and a lot of the time lacks any clear hints about what you need to do. This could be down to a poor translation, but some of the solutions are just down to bad game design. Does the story make up for this?
No….Not even a little.
Theres an interesting Distopian setting presented here, but its wasted on a plot that travels so fast, that the story itself isnt even fleshed out. There was a twist at one point, that Im guessing was supposed to be dramatic, but as a player you werent given enough background to actually care. As other reviewers have mentioned, the game end on an abrupt note, and feels very unfinished. If the plot was good, I would complain, but I was just happy it was over.

Graphics and voice acting can always be forgiven, bad puzzles and narrative however, cannot.

Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals

Showed promise, didn't deliver


Sometimes you really want to give a game the benefit of the doubt. Created by the same company behind Syberia, this game is certainly style over substance, The presentation is certainly pleasing, with nice visuals, voice acting and music but the core of the game is lacklustre. Some puzzles lack any hint on how to complete them, and your left randomly trying things untill you eventually get the right answer.

The main gripe however, must be directed at the story. If you have read the orignal Nikopol graphic novel, or have seen the movie based on it, then youll probably be ok here. If you havnt however, then you will be lost pretty fast in whats going on. There was something going on with your father, Egyptian gods, a floating pyramid and giant jellyfish.

Answers on a postcard, avoid.

Ringworld: Revenge of the Patriarch


Stars - 20

Wasted Potential


Considering the source material that Ringworld pulls from, how could this game get things so wrong?

Ringworld is a series of Novels by Larry Niven, so theres quite a lot of world building and backstory already in place. The first problem is that the devolpers expected you to know have read at least one of the books prior to playing this, as nothing is really explained in game (i.e what the Ringworld actually is).
The story isnt fleshed out, the puzzles are mostly obscure “click everywhere with everything” affairs, and its biggest crime, is that it just feels unfnished. The game was meant to be a trilogy, and Im honestly surprised that a sequel was made for this (but not surprised the 3rd game was cancelled). It took me 3 hours to fully get through Ringworld, it was an average experience, that with a bit more work could have been a lot more enjoyable.

I would not recommend.

Orion Conspiracy, The

Flawed by enjoyable


This game was actually a lot more enjoyable than it had any right to be. Divide By Zero had some ups and downs when it came to game development, but with Orion Conspiracy I honestly feel they nailed it.

Devlin our hero is voiced very well, and actually does a great job at conveying the pain and anger of the death of his son. Unfortunatly some of the other voice acting is a bit “dodgy”, but I actually feel that it adds to the games charm. Story is an interestng murder mystery that progresses past that quickly, puzzles are simple and easy to understand, and visuals/sound and anywhere from passable, to very good.

Would recommend.

Innocent Until Caught

Indictive of the time


IUC is Divide by Zero’s first point and click outing, and it shows. It draws heavily from the charm of and humor of the Stainless Steel Rat books by Harry Harrison, and doesn’t do a bad job in making the main hero likeable. However, there is little story here, with the main emphasis being item collection and general puzzles. Add in one very annoying “maze” section, and you get a game that’s decent, but nothing really memorable. I would suggest only to play it for Nostalgia’s sake, or to set you up for the far superior sequel “Guilty”.
