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.

Up Left Out

Up Left Out

Up Left Out is a sliding block puzzle game where the primary gimmick is that the blocks have to be slid out of the pegs holding them before they can be moved around like normal. For the starting levels, removing the blocks from the pegs is all you have to do, but later on you’ll also have to create complete lines from red fragments on top of the blocks, as well as contend with other mechanics like rotating blocks and moving walls.

My main problem with this game is that it feels half-finished. There’s only around 50 levels, and considering how every time a new mechanic is introduced the game uses a few levels to ease you into how it works, it feels like only one half of the package is made of actual puzzles. Of those, the majority felt more like busywork than brainteasers, and when I reached the point where the game became engaging enough that I felt it was about to truly START, I suddenly got a “THANK YOU FOR PLAYING”, followed by a few bonus levels easier than what I just played. Disappointing, to say the least.

| Follow my curator for more great puzzle game recommendations! |

Up Left Out is another short minimalist puzzle game from the maker of Hook, Klocki and Push but this time you are sliding blocks around.

There are various goals to accomplish. It starts off simply, you just need to free each block from it’s holding pin. Other mechanics are slowly introduced, blank blocks that just get in the way, patterns and lines on top of the blocks that need to be matched together to end the puzzle, buttons that rotate all the pieces and walls/gates that can be manipulated to stop blocks at specific places. These walls demonstrate the fundamental mechanic, blocks slide as far as they can until they hit something. Some of the later and best puzzles contain blocks that can only be moved once that pattern on top of them is replicated on other movable blocks.

Bolt Riley, A Reggae Adventure

Bolt Riley, A Reggae Adventure

It would be in my best interest to give a glowing review since I want to see this game completed but I need to be honest about the progress made so far. I do realise this game is considered Early Access and I know the budget for this game is pretty small, and you should keep that in mind too (if you end up reading the in-depth review linked below), but ultimately, is it something I would recommend to my friends or the gaming public in its current state? Considering the artwork still needs some touching up, bugs were encountered way too frequently, the UI needs fixing and the first chapter is way too short, probably not. I’m hoping that Adventure Mob will eventually prove me wrong though, as I really want this game to succeed.

Bolt Riley is a well-intentioned but uniformly misguided proof of concept.

Presumably the developers naively underestimated the effort required to achieve the level of quality best suited to their vision. Instead, they opted to release an embarrassingly short and painfully butchered appetizer.

One should be easily inclined to forgive unrefined details in Early Access but no update in over a year severely burdens the game’s credibility.

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded

85 / 100

First thing to appreciate with Leisure Suit Larry (LSL) is that it is a game that originally was created in 1987! The gameplay in this ‘Reloaded’ version is essentially the same, with updated graphics, interface & full voice/audio support.

Being from an earlier generation, the gameplay can feel basic by modern standards and there is no real direction from a story perspective to guide you either. You only know that you need to guide Larry (the 40yr old virgin) to find love. With limited guidance, the ability to visit any of the locations in any order & a lot of abstract puzzles to solve LSL can leave you scratching your head for long periods.

War Solution - Casual Math Game

War Solution - Casual Math Game

Hello Yaw Studios!

I don’t usually play math games, but I ended up giving this one a chance …

It was a great decision because the game is very beautiful and it also has a win-win relationship. I say this because when I’m playing the game in a few minutes I forget the mathematics because I have to worry about other things that are happening in the battle and without realizing it I improve my thinking agility and my knowledge.

Congratulations, looking forward to seeing the next shows!

In fact, a great game for an affordable price. There are many game modes! Particularly, the survivor and adventure modes were the ones I like most. If you are looking for an adventure game where you can learn Math in the journey, this is it. Strongly recommended!!!

The Little Acre

The Little Acre

The Little Acre is one of those games you don’t really want to give a negative review, mainly because of it’s beautifully hand-drawn animations. If there was a ‘mixed’ choice I would have chosen that one.

First of all, the game is really short. I left the game running while doing something else so I can’t say how long it really is but I’m pretty sure it’s less than 2 hours and I did not rush through the game.

A short game does not have to be bad but in this case it does hurt the story. Personally to me it felt like the game was rushed, especially at the end. There are still several things unexplained at the end of the game as well. Voice acting was good enough, not amazing but it didn’t really have to be. I did notice the voice actors got less lines as the story progresses.

Let me preface this review by saying The Little Acre has tons of charm and care put into it. The animation is all frame by frame and it looks so beautiful, the voice acting is great and the characters are all really likeable. It’s a very lovely game.

Unfortunately it is just too short - your first playthough will probably not last more than one hour and a few minutes. Usually I wouldn’t say a game being short is necessarily a negative aspect, but for an adventure game, and one with big potential such as this, that’s nowhere near enough time for anything to be well developed, as it’s over before you know it. Worse, the gameplay is split between two characters in different situations, so you get even less time and development with each of them.
