    Couldn’t Get Into It

    BASED ON DEMO

    The story is not new, we’ve been telling it and retelling it since Hansel and Gretel. Children are deceived by a wicked old witch so she can nab them and feed on them – well, their souls anyway. This looks like an interesting version of it. And hints of Azada as well!

    As I seem to be saying non-stop this month, it’s the look of the thing that stops me short. The graphics are clear, as in precisely delineated, but they are chunky and grainy, at least on my monitor. When it’s hard to tell the difference between stone and wood, I think there’s room for improvement.

    The game also didn’t seem very busy. There was often only one or two things to do in a scene, the game seemed to move too slowly. Do one thing. Pick up another thing. Go to a previous room to use. Get one thing.

    And as alternate worlds go, this was totally unimaginative.

    Stacks of HOs for those (like me) who like them. The puzzles all seem very familiar.

    The game does not have any “bling” – collectibles, achievements, cute sidekicks.

    What it does have is length. Judging by the walkthrough, you’ll be saving kids’ souls for quite a while!

    For those of you who prefer a game without all the trendy distractions, and aren’t all that interested in wrapping your mind around some weird surreal landscapes, this is probably a game you should add to your collection. For you,...

    I Recommend This Game!
