Great classic point and click adventure!
Great game, reminiscent of the great LucasArts and Sierra games of the 90s. The puzzles were a little easy, but I enjoyed how quickly the story advanced. And this game is not too short for the money. Actually it's a bargain... $.99! Anybody who says otherwise has no idea what goes into making a game like this. The story was cohesive, the dialogue was interesting and original, the artwork was unique and inspiring, and the sound design was on-point. People pay more for a soda they drink in 5 minutes than this amazingly designed and produced game by an indie studio that probably spent many a late night poring over this thing. Brilliant! Well done. I can't wait for the next episode.
Whimsical, quirky, and fun, only with a big BUT...
Three things, however, game play time is very brief even for the $ .99 that it cost me (as other reviewers here and online say; only about two hours), the several "endless runner" style mini games need a skip button, and the dialog trees are too stunted for a game that relies strongly on "witty" chatter for its player appeal. I feel pretty skeptical about whether to purchase subsequent episodes unless they are substantially beefed up in both quantity and quality of content.
Reminds me of the fantastic Hector Badge of Carnage Series
It' not as funny, as raunchy, or as tough as Hector (oh how I wish that series would come back), but this is still a very fun and entertaining romp. It is a bit short but still enjoyable
The bumbling Fiddle and his quirky companions make this worth the price. Very much looking forward to episode 2.
