Puzzle fest... but too short

This game is for those who like puzzles and “escape the room” genre. Not for the exploration/walking simulator fan, nor for those who want to play a story. So there’s no point downvoting it based on these aspects, that’s not what the game is done for.

However, it actually has a background story that leads the game and finds a resolution at the end, and I found this theme quite nice, well integrated and really adding to the game.

The puzzles are of multiple kinds and well designed. Experienced gamers won’t get stuck too often but will find their share in here.

All in all pretty good, with nice graphics…

...but the huge downside is the length. Way too short! The nature of the ending could have provided for new puzzles to follow, and that would have been great, you’ll know why. But it just stops there. Not that the ending is any bad, but it leaves you badly wanting for more. With twice the length I would not have felt kind of cheated.

I still highly recommend this game for puzzles fans, just know about the very short length, so get it on sale.
