Fantastic game, iffy controls

I've had the pc version of the game for some time now but I've never been able to properly play it because it would invariably crash once I finished chapter 2 (although I did manage to get to chapter 3 once) but now I'll hopefully have the chance to play the game in its entirety thanks to dotemu.

Unfortunately a problem that both the original and the port have is that the controls aren't nearly as good as they could be. In the original you would guid max along with your cursor rather than clicking a location and having him walk there. That coupled with his slow walking speed made things very tedious. This port has the same issues PLUS some wonky touch controls. The game is very slow paced so it won't effect your ability to play it but it will occasionally be a bother

Loved it but...

... I love adventure POC games but don't have a PC. This game really fun, great story, I absolutely love games with different themes for different levels and how the story tied together. Voice acting was very good. However I was playing on a small iPhone 5s and the 'trigger points' for so many things just got lost in the densely detailed environment. Also, yes please give a basic item tutorial, and consider have a 'description' for each item when clicked on, or maybe update the item menu. And the reaction time between clicking on areas and then getting recognized was really aggravating I almost deleted game.

Thanks for a good game I think for small screens this is not a good choice though.

Really fun adventure game!

Loved playing this game. Thanks for making a port for this title so people like me ( new to the point and click adventure fan club) can experience all these amazing games from the 90's! Wish they made more games like this nowadays! 😜😍
Also want to note that price is totally worth it, game is awesome and good length which is something I look for in a game. I hate paying for short games and thankfully this game gives hours of point and click puzzle solving fun!!!!
