Auri’s Tales

Auri’s Tales

This beautiful game has a lot of potential and I love the direction it’s heading! You can see the obvious love for the developers daughter that went into its creation.

I recommend keeping an eye on its future development; it still has a ways to go.

Your objective is to collect coins and equipment to help statue friends solve puzzles for rewards and open each heartfelt letter to the daughter of the king and queen who await your entry inside the castle. A map of some kind would be very helpful to follow.

The Dig®

The Dig®

I grew up with point and click adventures, which gives you an idea where I am coming from. I have played The Dig in 2016 for the first time, so nobody should assume that I am blinded by nostalgia. Okay, here is what I think: The Dig is one of the best adventures that I have ever played. I loved it to pieces! My favourite titles are: Day of the Tentacle, Loom and Grim Fandango. I think The Dig is up there.

I do NOT like Sam and Max and Monkey Island, because they have too much moon logic for my taste.

A fun, beautiful, different and must-have point and click adventure game for every retro gamer. This is the kind of game that I think would do really well as a remake. Not everyone has heard of it. It’s setting is very alien, and it has Spielberg’s name attached to it. How could this NOT be a successful remake?! On to the review! …..


One thing that Dig focuses on, which a lot of P&C adventures didn’t at the time, is atmosphere. You feel like your’e in a very confusing and mystifying alien world. There are some tablets, writings, art and such that you find that are not explained completely, adding mystery to the world. Also, that sense of being alone is very felt, despite the fact that you have a couple of teammates that you occassionally run into. The music fits nicely and there’s even a sense of danger with each new area. Admittedly, towards the end of the game there is quite a bit of back tracking and story which pulls you out of this.

Would highly recommend this game!!

Played the prologue & was so please that i bought it right away. I love the simplicity of a point & click game. I have tried games with my X-box controller on my P.C. (I don’t have an X-box or any other systems as i like things simple without the complexity of numerous “buttons” especially since i’m rather “nimblely inept” & also have no idea what the adjustments in settings even mean) ….as a footnote, why does “partial controller support” mean something different depending on Steam & the producers of the game as i now have quite a collection of “wanting to pull my hair out” games! Oh dear, it looks like i am regressing, lol, so back to my review of Ultreia. Simply put, it is one of my favourite games i have had the pleasure to play! I love the lil robot & his wonderful humour. Buy it, u won’t be disappointed. The graphics are awesome & the plot is so well written & produced. The lil guy turns a game into an emotional, quirky, loveable “piece of art”. Kudos to the writers & producers for giving me a few needed hours of distraction from lifes everyday demands.

This game is a success. I found all the characteristics of a good old classic point’n click.

The artistic direction and the music are a huge success, the story is fascinating and the puzzles work well. It is not very complicated to move forward especially if we activate the indicators to interact. The secret ending is very moving (don’t miss it). May The Force be with you, Nymo.

Deja Vu Collector’s Edition

Deja Vu Collector’s Edition

You can watch a full in-depth review of my thoughts on YouTube , or read my summarized review by reading every other sentence.

The premise is simple: your girlfriend, soon to be fiance, was supposed to take a plane to meet you, but she never showed up. In your infinite wisdom, you end up taking a plane to a fictional city in Russia to try and find what happened to her. Afterwards, it’s not just puzzles for the sake of puzzles, this plays like it would be a great adventure game like the old LucasArts days, because while you have to do things inconveniently, you’re not expected to just click your mouse all day long, there’s a rhyme and reason behind everything you do.

Riven: The Sequel to MYST

Riven: The Sequel to MYST

Riven is a sequel to Myst, an old school click adventure game that revolves solving intricate puzzles and exploring surreal worlds created from linking books.

First off let me tell you that Riven is not revised for modern hardware, as such, some feature set is very archaic. The save menu operates like a word document save menu. The resolution is stuck at a piddly 640x480 resolution, this makes playing the game on modern monitors an absolutely awful visual experience. To makes matter worst, the game cannot be set to windowed mode without some major .exe hex coding voodoo. That set aside, the game is still worth playing. After all with the limitation of Riven’s game engine, which is essentially one huge powerpoint slide, it’s not too strange that the game is limited in resolution. The game is a little over 3 gigabytes and it’s 33% of 1080p. Keep in mind that this game was created in 1997, which equates to a 5 CD game. Had this game release at 1080p, it would’ve been around 15 CD’s. Have fun switching and keeping track of that many disk while playing!

First of all, I recommend you beat this game WITHOUT looking up a walkthough, I will explain later in the review.

This is one of my favorite games of all time. This is one of the best (and one of the only) examples of a puzzle game done right. sure there are other puzzle games out there that are great like The Witness and… uh… well The Witness doesn’t even count because that is a more logic puzzle game and I consider that a different sub-genre. I honestly can’t find a good comparison to this game other than Myst 1 (and even that has major differences).

I really liked playing this game! It is fair and challenging.

A short breakdown of the pros and cons!


– Three difficulties to play and complete to gain the final skin for your ball character.

– There are many skins to unlock that will change your ball character.

– The mechanics are simple but very well implemented.

– I really like the color-changing that you need to go through the obstacles.

– Get ready to roll into a difficult platformer that will test your skills.


– The game might be too difficult for some people even on easy.

The Last Express Gold Edition

The Last Express Gold Edition

I think this may well be the greatest game ever made. Yes, the controls are clunky as all get out. Yes, for people used to today’s games the ultra-high-tech-for-1997-digital-rotoscoping technique looks extremely antiquated. Yes, you’re dropped into the game with no idea what to do, and you’re going to fail. A lot. But at the same time “The Last Express” includes:

  • Probably the best-developed characters in any adventure game I’ve yet played (the weakest is arguably Robert Cath, who the player controls, but even he has an intriguing and irritatingly-largely-unrevealed-due-to-lack-of-a-sequel backstory). By the end of the game you know what they want and what makes most of them tick, and since certain bad things are more or less guaranteed to happen to a number of them the result is the equivalent of an emotional shovel to the face.

Ahead of its time but stuck in the past

First read about this game way back when it came out, in a magazine I still have, where the reviewer was left in complete awe because of unique design for an adventure game. Ever since it occupied a small cluster of neurons in the back of my head, waiting for me to play it and its moment to shine. I should say I never played the original so my review will only address this 2013 port, with some inferior exceptions others have noticed.

It plays like Myst, from 1st person perspective with static scenes as you move around, but is set in realistic environment of an vintage luxury passenger train called Orient Express. The whole game takes place in the same 4-5 vagon carts with beautifully rendered backgrounds. You move by clicking edges of screen with mouse cursor that contextually changes functions to forward, backward and left or right turn, with interaction prompts for opening doors and object/NPC interaction.

Very fun to play

This game provides a simple but addictive gameplay with 2 modes and 3 versus options.

If you can’t afford to buy a football table in real life, buy this game instead and you’ll experience the same.

AMID EVIL at its core is a wonderfully rendered retro throwback FPS that beckons the nostalgic memories of games such as Heretic and Hexen and Quake with gorgeous environments, beautiful weapon feel and a majestic combat encounters.

However, I come to you today not focused on the weapons, the enemies or the aesthetics, but rather something truly gorgeous: the Difficulty Selection level.

Most games dare not be so bold with something so seemingly obtuse as a Difficulty Selection level where it is not as simple as clicking a rather comedic naming on a menu. AMID EVIL, in this regard, dares to be different. There have been other reviews left for this game with scathing remarks as to the “poor design” of the Difficulty Selection. I disagree wholeheartedly. For you see, the Difficulty Selection tutorializes the player of the movement mechanics and the weight of the Champion in such an elegant and silent way that most take for granted. To go for the Easy difficulty, it is straightforward and one could get by the challenge by only holding the “W” key on the Keyboard. This is Leon Zawada and Simon Rance’s brilliance coming into full display here. By having the Easy difficulty being so easy to access, it makes clear of the very nature of the room so as to not to cause further confusion with regards to the other options.

Amid Evil is strange, half of the game is some of the best level design, music, atmosphere, and art direction Ive seen in a game. The other half is a boring bland repetitive slog. Its a coin flip for which episode is which, but imo the best Amid Evil gets is worth the worst it can be.
