    A perfect ending to the Runaway series, the first Runaway game was released years back and it's hard for me to accept that the series has come to an end because I have gotten so attached. It's funny to see how the characters has developed through the games and how the story turned out and I absolutely love the visuals in this game.

    Technically, it is an improvement over the previous versions: you can skip walking, there are hotspot highlight and the game now is able to run on any monitor resolution (not just 1024x768 which my monitor doesn't like). Despite I wanted to play it on my own, I got stuck 2-3 times for hours and had to lookup a walkthrough, but generally the puzzles are more logical than the previousTechnically, it is an improvement over the previous versions: you can skip walking, there are hotspot highlight and the game now is able to run on any monitor resolution (not just 1024x768 which my monitor doesn't like).

The ability to play as Gina is a welcome addition. The new voice cast was a bit odd. Expand

    A fun point and click adventure with a great score and beautiful drawn graphics. The voice acting is quite good too. The story keeps you interested enough, but in my opinion the game is far too short. I spent a few hours each day and finished it in a weekend. Didn't see that coming!

    A Really enjoyable experience, great voice casting group, however I wish they had kept the same voice for the returning characters. Never the less, its worth a look and I highly recommend it to any fans of point and click adventures.

    That is the first Runaway game that I play but I really enjoy. Its a nice and funny history with many puzzles to solve. The help system work pretty well and the gameplay is simple. Its not a game to break your brain in some crazy puzzles, its a game to have fun, give some laughs and enjoy a good soundtrack.

    The first two runaway games were excellent, but this one fell a little flat for me. Only a handful of characters from the first two games returned, and it seemed to have a completely new voice cast, which kind of spoiled it for me. Nevertheless, it was a good game, with challenging puzzles, and a satisfying conclusion to the story.

  1. A Twist of Fate has restored my faith in the Runaway series, thanks to its engaging narrative and streamlined interface. This is a great game for Runaway fans and newbies alike.
  2. Magnificent finale of the popular adventure trilogy comes with thrilling moments and unexpected twists we never believe we’ll ever see after the sluggish second part. [Issue#186]
  3. It’s an instant classic, not less.
