What's New in Version 1.0.2
- Correction of minor bugs
- Various improvements
Some of the Microids games ported to iOS have been enjoyable, with intuitive controls, outstanding graphics, and an engaging storyline. Necronomicon fails on all levels.
The standard point and click aspects are rendered as awkwardly as possible, from inventory management to interacting with the scenes. The "map" that you obtain soon into the game is useless and only takes you from one large area to another. You will spend most of your time walking in circles when you follow the green arrows that indicate your only movement options. Areas marked as Iive may not be -- you will frequently get a response along the lines of "come back later." WHEN to come back appears to be the only puzzle presented by the game.
Item use is irrational, e.g.,the same key opens a desk drawer and operates a motorcycle.
The plot broadly consists of helping your friend who has fallen prey to evil. I was fine with letting him rot. The characters and environment are so exceedingly dull, I felt like I was the much greater victim and doomed to purgatory for the duration of the gameplay.
Rating this 2 stars only because I reserve 1 star ratings for games that are literally unplayable.
