Modern Tales: Age of Invention

Modern Tales: Age of Invention was an impulse buy. It was on sale for £4.19 and I just really wanted to play a puzzle game. So I purchased, downloaded and started playing immediately. I have several issues with this game, but it’s generally good if you’re not looking for anything special.


  • Art style is nice, though the talking animations are weird (but I expected this from a 4 quid Big Fish game tbh).

  • The puzzles are genuinely pretty fun to solve and the sound effects are super satisfying.
