    Good concept, artwork and sounds.
    Nothing more, because this game have so many flaws.

    Some puzzles doesn't make any sense at all, some are too easy and some others need you to click fast on tiny elements - sometimes moving at the screen, all a little glitched - a real pain. The hint system is equally bad, and considering the nonsensical and glitched puzzles, you'll probably wait the long time required to access the hint, just having to search an walkthrough after that. The story is awful, for kids at best. You see Hamlet's references, nothing more.

    Why is a good concept?
    It's a point and click adventure with action puzzles, most of them on boss battles - yes, boss battles in a P&C adventure. Also, it's a mock version of a literature classic with short comics between the acts. It will be great if it was not so poorly executed.

    Not the worst game I've ever played, but definitely in the bottom 10%.

    Some parts of this game are very difficult as you need to be very quick with your mouse. Presumably this is because it was originally made for iPad, where tapping is a bit faster. Even if you can get past this, it's an unexciting pixel hunt that wont last you more than about 80 minutes.

    Awesome graphical style, shamefully stuck on some sub-par resolution. The game itself is a single screen point and click adventure, but theAwesome graphical style, shamefully stuck on some sub-par resolution. The game itself is a single screen point and click adventure, but the puzzles aren't fun and require some surprisingly precise timing that's not easy to pull off with a mouse. Not just precise timing, but targets that are only 5 or so pixels across and are on screen for only a second. There's tons of color matching, but the designers didn't seem to take into account the optical effects of surrounding colors, leading you to try and match purple with blue or orange with red (sometimes correctly, sometimes incorrectly.) There are puzzles that can't be solved with logic, but require you to sit there until a previously nonexistent option appears. All this and the game only has about 30 minutes of content.
    Not worth it at any price.
