Rampage


A very german very politically correct trip to the heart of darkness somewhere in Africa. Executed with pleasant leisurely gameplay and nice looking backgrounds and animation.

Not very funny


Figuring out how the interface is supposed to work and placing events in the right order are not very funny despite gorgeous graphics.

Excellent game


If you liked Dreamfall, you likely will like this game too. Although very different games, the ambience and mood are related, therefore the comparision. State of Mind deals with things similar to those in Martin Ganteföhrs older game Moment of Silence, but in a much more elegant way and with AAA production values. It’s absorbing and fascinating in a way very few games manages to be.

Arcadia and old Egypt Valve style


A lackluster variation on Portals puzzle mechanics. Laser beams, companion cubes and jumping through air but far from the production values of Valve. The puzzles themselves are fairly interesting at times but the environments dull and repetitive and the minimalist story a pretentious and rather thick discussion on artificial intelligence.

Cryo, wasn't it?


This is an edutainment title, an adventure game subgenre mocked by the crowd. Nevertheless this is a game well worth playing,  rich in atmosphere and you actually learn a lot about old Egypt.

great half way


This is a great old school point&click; horror game, based on the H P Lovecraft writings and loaded with beautiful tableaus and dialogue portraits.  At least it is a very good game up until you climb down into the underworld and the game becomes tedious and just boring. But you can drop it there, the first half is satisfying enough.

Holistic rivenesque puzzleing


This is a game with style and class. It requires good thinking, a taste for arts and letters, and a pencil and a notepad for taking notes. Besides that it’s just a brilliant game.
