Nice! Very original game based on an extremely old story. I especially like how the game loops unless you reset it, your relationship with your 'ancestor' increasing by a generation each time. :) The only thing I would ask for is more time for the underwater puzzle. The time currently given is far too short, necessitating skipping an eminently soluble puzzle. Edit: Extra kudos for having the screen go either direction after the force into landscape mode.
Really good I have experience with this type of game and often I knew what I needed. Thankfully there is an automatic mapping system, and a notebook that records key clues. Even though the available hints spell out where to go and what to do, you still have plenty of puzzles to solve on your own. There is a lot of going from one end of the play arena to the other. You can do things out of sequence if you like. The end was amusing and ironic. You don't have to pay for hints, there are no ads.
It's good My only complaint is that it needs some hints to help you know where you're going. The plot is not nearly intuitive, so without the walkthrough to help, you get stuck and don't know which area to try next or how a few pieces of the story connect. Other than that, I enjoyed it immensely.
Good but needs a bit of refinement There was lots of areas to investigate and the scenes were well presented and interesting but an interactive map would have helped, there was a lot of going back and forth looking for where you wanted to be. Some of the puzzles/storyline were vague and it was difficult to see how the objects/puzzles were linked, a hint button would avoid you needing to refer to a walk through. Overall an OK game.
Ok but Puzzles are ok and make you think, but there is so much 1 step forward and 4 steps back it spoils the flow of the game. Would be so much better to just be able to move forwards without all the continuous back tracking. It is boring and very irritating. would have given 5 stars otherwise.
Unsolvable 3x3 slider puzzles Only 50% of all randomly generated 3x3 slider puzzles have a solution. This game does not only present you with the soluble ones. If you get an insoluble one you just have to press skip puzzle :-(
