If You Like To Solve Stimulating Puzzlements, This Is For You!
I love these escape-like adventures that persistently challenge my brain, with layers of staggering complexity and the enigmas that I must unravel as I press on. As I explore the distinct rooms within this uninhabited and mysterious lab, my curiosity is roused by the vast amount of intricate devices/contraptions that surprise me into ponderment. This is not a hand-holding game that saturates you with transparent textual hints; you receive minimal information from which you use deductive reasoning by cross-referencing provided clues to determine where they apply within specific areas of needed action. You will refer to your journal for guidance, as it records each clue you discover. There are two quibbles as to why I've deducted a star. Firstly, I wish that a teleport map had been included to obviate the wearisome back and forth travel. Secondly, each location is inundated with junk-pile clutter, thus adding an overwhelming challenge in finding and applying inventory items. But as my journey comes to a close, I sense a scholarly perception within myself that is both encouraging and rewarding. I'm happy I went on this adventure!
I really wanted to like this game...
...but ultimately I can't recommend it. First the good parts. The graphics are nice, some of the puzzles are clever, and it has a sort of "atmosphere". Now the bad parts. The interface was awkward. Things keep getting in your way and you have to constantly get rid of them manually. The sound track was tedious and would quit working at times, which was really an improvement. The deal breaker was the lack of fun. More than boring and tedious, it actually felt like work to get through it. A lot of the clues were very obscure and there was no sense of story or progression at all, just randomly getting stuff done to get into the next area. There's a lot of clutter, by which I mean graphic elements and "clues" which have no purpose. Red herrings I guess, but for me just annoying. I gave it three stars because it has some good qualities and it may be your cup of tea, but it definitely wasn't mine.
Brilliant intense adventure
I've found this to be one of the most satisfying, tough point-and-click adventures that I've ever played. It is a little awkwardly implemented in places, and the style of the puzzles is not for everyone. I found the puzzles to be difficult but always fair. The strange creepy world of Chimera Labs is richly imagined. It opens up gradually like a puzzle box, with wilder and stranger and scarier happenings the further you go. The music is weird and annoying. Despite the awkward corners (including a lot of mysteriously bad spelling), a huge amount of care and planning has gone into this game. It vividly feels like a trip into the future, with machines and gadgets that operate with their own consistent logic. I very much hope there will be more from Aircamp.
