    Despite some shortcomings (a couple of minor technical issues, ugly cut-scenes) The Inner World is a charming point’n’click game that blows Memoria out of the water. [01/2014, p.61]

    While The Inner World certainly doesn’t push the envelope, neither does it cut any corners in delivering top-notch fun for the family.

    A rather typical, albeit interesting and quite "warm" adventure game that will offer you about 10 hours of charming, old fashioned point and click gameplay.

    This is a solid adventure in a wonderfully creative game world which will not disappoint.

    Despite small flaws, I have to admit, that I really liked the game. It is probably not the perfect adventure, but undoubtedly a great game.

    A very neat execution of a classic formula; an adventure full of charming and beautifully drawn characters. Furthermore, under the childish aesthetics, the game explores mature themes.

    A nice short fairytale. There is nothing particularly clever or inventive about it, but you can’t help but enjoy playing it.

    This graphical adventure works pretty much in every aspect aspect… as long as you speak German or English. If you are looking for classic gameplay mechanics and a good story, this may be your choice.

    Charming adventure. Good puzzles, great art style, nice musics.

    But it has problems. The interface is absolutely terrible, designed for tablets, you only use one mouse key, a lots of useless clicks, need to drag instead of click and move the objects and so on.
    It's also EXTREMELY SLOW. The main character walks so slow it's infuriating, getting from one place to another takes quite some time and makes me wanting to shut off the game pretty soon... I've been able to play it in just little sessions because of that, it's too annoying waiting for it.

There are quite a number of these comming out again, some good, some not so much. This is definitely one of the better ones, with likable characters, a wonderful world you want to explore and well build puzzles. Can't actually put down any bad things, except maybe the game length of only 6 hours, but the story felt finished in itself so i dont really mind that.
    If you are a fand of old-school-2d-adventures, you should definitely try this out.
