Lots of fun but not without flaws

Indeed a very good game, which made me laugh more than most games and just for that it’s great and I had a great time.

On the “game” side, one could argue with the camera (which is sometimes a pain but not too often) and the inventory, but the major problems to me are some puzzles which are very hard to figure out, due to zero, or very thin and unadapted clues.

There are things I would never have figured out if it wasn’t by luck or by trying everything with everything after running out of idea. I’m thinking about the gold beverage one (not even something to use on something, you have to guess this one right, or be very lucky that you’ve done the right thing at the right moment), or the grinder one (how to know what was supposed to go in there? You are practically advised against it everytime you manipulate the thing). Or some puzzles bound to going to a certain place you have no clue you have to go to. All in all, things are not always logical and I don’t really like that kind of puzzles, even if it therefore ends being fun.

So be warned : you’ll get stuck. But still, even with a walkthrough, this game is worth playing, for its humour that will actually makes you laugh, and its one of a kind original and fun setting which may be cartoony but actually not goofy.
