Much as I wanted to see what happens next, I got annoyed with the gameplay and deleted the game before finishing it. I couldn’t for the life of me find the appropriate pixel in order to progress futher and just lost it. Two-stars rating is only for the good writing and an interesting story, everything else is nerve-wracking: slow walking, dated graphics, bugs, the overacting which makes the game sound like a parody, constant repeating of the same annoying overacted lines whenever you click on the same object while hopelessly trying to hit another pixel nearby. There was even a trial and error puzzle where you have to find a particular book among a hundred of them and whenever you pull the wrong one from the shelf, which is inevitable to happen for at least 20 times (if you’re really lucky), you hear the same painfully slow line over and over again informing you that it is the wrong one in the tone of voice announcing the Apocalypse.
So, yeah, don’t waste your time.
