    Bought at GH & happily surprised by how much fun the game is.

    It reminds me strongly of a scaled-down version of the "Runaway Turtle" series of adventure games. Gameplay in Rita is genuinely entertaining & the characters are a blast! Good voice-overs & a strong storyline.

    I love the humour & comic book presentation in the cut scenes. Graphics are lovely; tasks & puzzles a good difficulty; and the hos are actually quite fun & very interactive--I don't mean the usual "find one interactive object to join to another" & that's it. No, no, here much of what happens in the hos requires interactions. I enjoyed this feature immensely, almost made me forget how much I usually dislike hos!

    I definitely recommend this well-made & truly fun-to-play adventure hos.
