AR-K: The Great Escape

AR-K: The Great Escape

After playing the first 2 episodes I can safely say that this is the best episode so far!!! The developers certainly improved the game quality in both ways: technically and direction-wise. The following points sums up the following:


  • Gameplay quality much improved from first 2 episodes

  • Puzzles more interesting

  • Protagonist given more depth in character

  • Story development much more natural

  • Render quality improved

  • This episode is much more bug free than previous 2 episodes

It’s great when you come to a game and it’s a lot better than you thought it would be. While I enjoyed ar-k 1 and 2 and I do recommend those games to play first, this for me is a lot better - story, graphics, setting. The writing was very good and if you didn’t want to read everything, you didn’t need to click on that character’s bit of conversation but could come back to it if you wanted. I liked the humour, and it was witty in parts. It is the perfect balance of not just a good story which is vital in an adventure game but also good interactive gameplay.

The Soldiers Factory

The Soldiers Factory

The Soldiers Factory is a top-down stealth game and the start of a trilogy.

Go undetected and sneak past enemy soldiers or secretly kill them. Overcome surveillance cameras and laser barricades. Use the room scanner, the taser pistol and many other weapons. But remember, the alarm will make the mission even more difficult.

The playing time on the NORMAL level of difficulty is approximately 12 hours. Of course, it depends on the player. The story takes you to several locations, which is divided into over 60 levels.

The Franz Kafka Videogame

The Franz Kafka Videogame

A point & click which celebrates surrealism more than the novelist himself.

It is an original puzzle/adventure game inspired by the writings of Franz Kafka. But unfortunately, the story has very little to do with Kafka, except that the protagonist of the story, named simply K. is involved in events that are beyond his own control and tries to find the way out of it (kind of, there are no clear motives for what he’s doing), which is somewhat Kafkaesque, I must admit.

The art style is well-done and nice. Although is nothing surprisingly spectacular, is queer enough to allow characters like K. to seamlessly inhabit the same world as the Duck or Insect Detective without being too jarring. I also genuinely enjoy a lot of the music the game has to offer, even if the loops are relatively short. It manages to generate the correct theme and feeling the game clearly want the players to feel.

Do I ever try and like this game…

There are a great many issues that are hard to overlook and a great many subtle nuances I keep trying to convince myself are worthwhile canceling out the problems, but ultimately I can’t…I just can’t.

On first playthrough I was excited about the artstyle and potential subject matter… and upon delving in I was even more pleased with the small pieces of detail and pastice that are probably lost to most; be that the Scheele green walls, the SS Blumfeld (the elderly bachelor), and I did get so many giggles from the vulture wine advert; but so much of it was just so shallow and of no substance and concequence. The more I tried to prove that was not the case to myself the more I found quotes and disclamers from the sources proving my wimsy wrong.

In Flames

In Flames

In Flames is a 2D adventure with lots of puzzles and an immersive storyline. It is set in the 80s rural America with all the features you’d expect – a spooky town, characters with well-developed back stories, and a great mystery to solve. Finn Clayton finds himself chained to a tree in the middle of a crisis, and is about to find out what is going on.

my full play through here:

A pretty good school project point and click having to open the menu choose the correct interaction close the menu testing what option you need when the options aren’t really explained outside of a picture makes the game pretty clunky, until you get used to it a lot of the options only have one or two uses anyways having a system where you click an item and it just gives you the option needed when the time comes for that item’s interaction might have been better than having to open and close a menu not a big problem but since there’s quite a few objects it gets redundant. The story is pretty decent nothing crazy, but I like the fact you get a genocide mode or a pacifist mode sadly the ending doesn’t change regardless.

Going the Distance

Going the Distance

This is a fun launcher game that is super relaxing and has nothing bad going on at all. Good gameplay, very nice story and characters as well.

I would suggest playing this game if your into horror or launcing games. Though to be aware does start slow, though it picks up super quickly in later levels.

FULL playthrough here (not on story(easy) mode once it uploads):

This game is hard, but the story is amazing and it’s a ton of fun. I definitely didn’t see the game going how it did, but I loved every second of the main story. I will say I believe some of the items on the 2nd stage are impossible to get (mainly pothole 7, possibly 8 I couldn’t even find the thing in pothole 8 7 I just couldn’t possibly get to the left far enough while falling unless there’s a mechanic with the rover that’s not explained. Honestly this was worth every cent of $4.99 The visuals are amazing the play is fun even though grindy as a mf and i hate the blimp stage they’re so long. ACHIEVEMENTS DO NOT WORK AT ALL I beat the whole game and I’m 0 out of 35 which is a complete shame. If you want an amazing game though buy this. Now I have to go take my exam after playing this game for 13 hours straight and not studying adult choices xD. It was a struggle, but I went the distance (insert Cake song).

I received this game as a part of some bundle I bought way back.

I want to like this game. I wish the development team the best. But unfortunately I cannot recommend it, not even for $8 USD.

There are good, or at least decent, things here. There is some humor, including physical humor, that works. The actual voice lines are mostly fine, and what faults there are there in this audio itself are much more likely on the VA director and/or scriptwriters. Barring one jarring segment of lines I noticed in the 2nd episode where something obviously went wrong in recording or compression or something, but the team decided to use it anyway, which… fits with some of my suspicions about how out-of-time/energy/money they were feeling at the time.

AR-K may be a study in how to have an okay story, okay graphics and good voice-acting and still come out with a bad game - soo manyy problems.

This title consists of the first two episodes of the game, “Gone with the Sphere” and “The Girl Who Wasn’t There”, and the second feels way better than the first. Still, we see a lot of beginner’s mistakes in the handiwork. Basically every aspect of the game is flawed in some way or another.

Note: Review was rewritten to fit Steam’s transparent character limit.

The Journey Down: Chapter One

The Journey Down: Chapter One

Overall, this is a solid P&C Adventure game, with reasonably logical puzzles once you immerse, and no Guide-Dang-It solutions- it’s possible to work out all the solutions given the information available in the game. That said, there was at least one puzzle that refused several plausible solutions in favor of what seems to me to be a less-plausible (though more amusing) one, and several in which I knew the concept of the solution, but there wasn’t much of an indication about how to actually do that. Plus the traditional complex “solve it because it’s there” puzzle that turns out to massively help your protagonist progress in a somewhat illogical way, but that’s so common in the genre that it might actually be considered a lack if it weren’t present. :-J There is the usual complete refusal by the protagonist to clean up after themselves- I wish more of these games would let us give people their stuff back once it’s not needed any more. Hopefully, there will be uses for the items still in Bwana’s pockets at the end of the chapter, instead of the traditional “lost everything during the cutscene” trope.

This title really surprised me with how well it was made. I came in having no expectations. I had bought the game as part of a bundle on indiegala, and was only really going to try it out while waiting for another (and much larger in size) game to download, and was frankly blown away right from the start.

You start off in dire straights with your electricity having been shut off because you hadn’t paid your bills for a while. This means you can’t make any money because the pump in your gas station that you own an operate relies on the power to run. However with some cheeky DYI smarts, you’re soon back to normal… If normal means no customers, which… it does.

Nice simple game, enjoyed it quite a lot. For the young of soul.

If you are old with slow reflexes like me, spoilers : (select to read)

! Some gameplay hints.

  • Beginning, rotate once the bridge, go to north wall, climb and cross bridge.

! - Pass a brown gate, push green statue to green square and gate before opens.

! - Break all golden bulls and the golden door breaks.

! - Minotaur, kill him 3 times, each time destroy his heart, and he finally goes up in smoke and the lava/flame tongues barring the way disappear.
