Aug 25, 2013Very good adventure with clever puzzles and an interesting story but the saving system is all bugged up: if something goes wrong when you save the game you won't be able to play it ever again unless you start deleting and tweaking and messing with the file system (and even then, you have to restart the game from scratch). First glimpse of the problem came into view on January 2013; seven months ago the problem is still here. A good game is useless if the game is unplayable because of the save system. I mean, it's not 1986 anymore.… Full Review »
Nov 7, 2013Angelica Weaver is an adventure/hidden object game that has you chasing a serial murdered in the present, while trying to solve a related, unsolved case in the past. The main character has psychic powers that are used for a few things, including seeing the crime scene of the past yourself.
This game is pretty stupid on all levels. Most of the gameplay involves either clicking everything on the screen or trying all of your inventory items on every you can interact with. This game has plenty of adventure game logic too... there are several times where you're given multiple items that all have the same purpose, but you can still only use one specific item in each place. There are no interesting characters, and the story is just awful. This is meant to be a mystery, but it fails in that regard too, because you don't meet the killer at all until the end.
The game has only two positive points. The first is that the art is nice. The second is that there are some actual puzzles, though they're so easy that this almost doesn't count.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone at any price above free. Even if it was free, I don't think this game will even be worth the time spent for most people, though if you're a fan of adventure games, your time may not be entirely wasted.… Full Review »
Dec 31, 2013This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The game is frustrating to play. It consists of clicking on random parts of the screen to advance through to the next area with a large amount of backtracking. It also defies logic by forcing you to use specific items in certain areas when multiple items could do the same job (e.g. using the bottom end of a BASEBALL BAT to open a train floor hatch when I had a metal-tipped umbrella just a moment ago?).
The main character reminds me of a Native American version of Barbie. And I know it's not supposed to be realistic, but why the hell is she tracking down a serial killer ALONE? I was half expecting her to die the throughout the entire game. And why does she keep losing her god damn smart phone? Or leaving car keys in the car? Or following the strong indication that the killer wants her to do something and actually does it?
I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. There are better puzzle games out there. The hidden object portion of the game is just abysmal. I'd rather play Where's Waldo? if i wanted to look for something.… Full Review »
