The phone rings, and you receive some interesting news - your estranged great uncle, the infamous Doctor Raving, has left you his closed toy and puzzle factory. Anxious to discover what fortunes await, you go to the factory to claim your inheritance.
But then things turn bad (as they tend to do in these types of games), and you find yourself trapped. You now have to escape the Raving Toy and Puzzle factory.
Raving Factory is an original point and click style adventure made for iOS devices. In order to escape, you will have to solve the puzzles and figure out the best path to escape.
When we last heard from Doctor Raving in Raving Manor, it was his home that was causing problems, Now we have a whole factory of problems to work through, along with some creepy surprises.
Raving Factory has a good mix of adventure gameplay along with many tough full screen puzzles to challenge you. As usual, our games are backed up with email support, and free hints can be found on our website at www.nerdbeach.com.
Well thought out and unusual
This is not your average mystery game with hidden objects and the same old puzzles. As the app promises, the puzzles are TOUGH but solvable. If you get fed up with a puzzle (I did with the pipes) the hints/answers are a tap away and are excellent. Well written dialogue and a lot of effort and thought was put into this game and the story is interesting. If the devs put out a sequel I'll buy it for sure. I give it 5 stars for its uniqueness.
Fun and challenging!
The puzzles were creative and made me think, which I like. This game allows you to find clues to many of the puzzles. That is awesome! The game controls were simple to use and understandable. There is a website to go to for hints, and when I was really stumped on one puzzle, the creator answered my email really fast! The storyline was understandable and made you want to beat your enemy (Jack).
What a fun game! The puzzles are difficult, but not impossible. It just takes a little perseverance and thinking outside the box. It took a few days and some help from friends, but I was disappointed when I finished it. I can't wait to see what Dr. Raving is up to next!!!
