    There's a lot to like about this little game: excellent writing, nice graphics, and puzzles that are actually fun to solve. Truthfully, the only complaint I had was the length of the game, and even then, it wasn't that I felt cheated in any way; I was just eager for more.

    Even with its relative ease and its short gameplay, it's hard not to like Scarlett and the Spark of Life.

    Scarlett and the Spark of Life is a fun, funny and entertaining journey and a great lead-up for what could end up being a solid episodic adventure title.

    A charming, easy-to-love adventure, the introductory episode of Scarlett and the Spark of Life is a fine start for a promising new series.

    While it's a bit on the short side and a tad easy, this is a hugely promising start for Launching Pad Games. More, please.

    This first episode of a promising adventure series is clever and well-written, but far too short.

    The point and click adventures that have too much dialogue do not appeal much to me, as I like to play my games and not read them; but I really did enjoy the story of Scarlett.
