I originally played this game and couldn't finish due to glitches. I decided to try again with the re release and was pleasantly surprised at how long it was and the glitch was gone. If you like point and click adventure games in third person. There is nothing not to like. Especially since it's free
Beware! Game Does Not Save Progress!
The main attraction here is predominately the intriguing and suspenseful plot presented as a cinematic experience; and for the small portion of the game that I could play, the storyline is attention-grabbing. The characters appear to be compelling enough, as demonstrated through their realistically portrayed speech patterns. The banter between characters is entertaining and humorous; but the protagonist has a ditzy, melodramatic voice, which frequently tests my nerves. Some of you might think that the copious amount of dialogue is burdensome and abates playtime; however, I believe that it strengthens the backstory and helps me feel connected to the characters. The graphics are satisfactorily rendered with fairly sharp and clear visuals. You cannot choose between any modes of difficulty; you are forced to play in the singular mode that is programmed into the game. Inventory is labeled, and you can combine items by dragging one on top of another; you need to figure out when to do this on your own. There is no teleport map; however, clicking on the motorcycle will transport you to other locations. You are given a journal to read light story development; and if you get stuck, you can click on the lightbulb icon for clues. Unfortunately, there are too many vexations and programming flaws that wholly obstruct gameplay. Firstly, the mechanical controls of the character are awkward and cumbersome due to the ceaselessly repetitive movement and dialogue initiating every time I tap within the scenes. You do not play from a first-person perspective; rather, you move your character in circles, resulting in extreme frustration while finding an interactive area. Secondly, I loathe having to steadily choose between hearing information as it is dictated (magnifying glass icon) and accessing an interactive area (hand icon); this drawback is imposing and disrupts fluid progression. Thirdly, this game is completely devoid of HOSs; avoid playing this if you cannot do without them. Fourthly, I have not come across a single puzzle in the three laborious hours that I spent manipulating a character in every direction. Furthermore, saving my progress was like solving a Trigonometry problem. It would take too much time to convey the state of befuddlement I was in while trying to find a way to save my progress. If it worked, it was not for long. I would open up the game hours later to realize I had lost a portion of my progress. This was the nail in the coffin. The only good moments were the dialogue of the characters and the interesting storyline. I'm glad I downloaded this during their free-trial period.
