Hamlet as a lavishly illustrated gamebook. It's bloody hilarious. The book is snarky as hell. The illustrations are done by fantastic webcomic artists (and are all properly credited with links in the gallery!). The branch points are silly as heck and are great fun to explore. My only small gripe is that it's not that easy to scroll back at certain points, but minor complaint. Also, the game takes full advantage of the digital medium to include achievements, music, and other neat extras. It 's a great buy whether you're a gamebook novice or veteran looking for a ROFLMAO inducing read.
Hilarious but could use a map This game is wonderful for us book lovers and anyone who enjoys we comics like Hark! A Vagrant. The downside is that in order to unlock all the different outcomes, you have to go through so many routes that it can be repetitive. An in game map of all the endings would be nice, as I had to look one up online because I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong to unlock different achievements. Still, it's a great game that shows the writer has a great love and grasp of the subject
Way better than it sounds I was hesitant to pick this up. How interesting could a Hamlet CYOA be? The answer is f'n hilarious. Its really well written with great art, totally makes fun of the modern pretention surrounding Shakespeare and all the chars in the play. Even of youre not interested in Shakespeare (like me) the gamebook is still worth getting. If you ever wanted the ghost of hamlets dad to revenge himself by becoming corporeal inside Claudius and exploding him, nows your chance!
This is one of the best! I loved this game. Thought about getting it on steam ever since it came out, but kept deciding not to. I'm glad I bought it for my phone. It is the greatest way to kill time or just read something ridiculous and hilarious!
I Adore It One of the most played games in my mobile library. There isn't a moment when I'm not smiling while playing. from the writing to the artwork, this is more than worth the purchase. I'm constantly pestering friends to buy it, haha.
A choose-your-path book in game form! If you loved the book, or if you wanted to read it but books don't do it for you, this game has it! All the pages are broken into digestible pieces ('paragraphs') and you get to touch the screen to see new ones. Then, when there is a path to be chosen, I forgot to mention there's a Shakespearean piano type melody playing. You can turn that off in "options" if you want but I like it so anyway, you can CHOOSE the path you want! I'm almost out of space for reviewing.
