Loved the noir voice over, music, and graphics. These are worth the price by themselves. It got "stuck" a couple times but never any crashes. The puzzles are fun and challenging enough. Whoever says they are too hard needs more patience or intelligence or both. The puzzles have a logic to them-- you just need to figure it out--I don't understand why anyone would want to skip them or look up a cheat. Seems lazy and you lose much of the value of the game.
This is my first "closed" game--one that has an end. So I struggled about the price. But finally decided that there is a lot of value for your 2 bucks--as much as a movie for example and cheaper. I would have given it 5 stars but I would like to see a scoring system added so that I could play it again and beat my old score by either total points or by completing it faster each time. Overall thoroughly enjoyable. I will look for more like this.
Excellent game, very pleasantly surprised!
A surprisingly outstanding game. If you like noir movies or old-fashioned hardboiled detective stories, you’ll get a real kick out of this. One thing that makes it work so well is that it is a complete package: great gaming, wonderful 1940s or 1950s style graphics, great Mickey Spillane style dialogue, and especially (and most surprisingly to me) excellent music that evoked an old Philip Marlowe movie. On top of great gaming and first-rate production values, it has a wonderful sense of humor and fun. I thought a retro-style Sam Spade type game with a sense of humor would be almost impossible to pull off, but Big Fish Games did it. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Nick Chase and I hope this is the start of a series.
Great graphics, same boring cookie cutter gameplay formula.
This is the 2nd game I've bought from Big Fish. I've tried a few demos as well. It's the exact same formula nearly every time. Mostly simple puzzles that string together a story; find the various objects in a scene; little explanation; little creativity in the gameplay.
The artwork is fantastic, but I wish they would improve the gameplay. It feels like an insult to the artwork. Classics like Deja Vu and Myst really make you think. Machinarium is a great example of how to do an adventure puzzle game for the iOS environment.
I bought the iPhone version, saved myself 3 bucks, and played it on the iPad. And when it ended way too soon, like most of their games, I didn't feel so cheated.
