  1. The game only lasts about 5-6 hours, and many will find what's on offer exceedingly dull. Still, point-and-click fans and puzzle-adventure buffs should really enjoy it.

    One thing many people who've given the game low reviews seem to 'ignore' is the fact that the game is almost 20 years old. It One thing many people who've given the game low reviews seem to 'ignore' is the fact that the game is almost 20 years old. It was not 'reimagined', simply given a makeover and given a voice. A lot of the elements in the game are easy, or in some cases (like myself) played it back in 1990 and somehow remember exactly what to do. So remember, you can't really judge it based on today's standards and call it a fair judgment. For me, it brought back memories of being 7 and watching eagerly as my dad installed the game onto our computer so I could play it. Full Review »

    I haven't played a game with so illogical puzzles as in this one.
    The best thing is, it has a solution button and you'll find yourselves

    The best thing is, it has a solution button and you'll find yourselves spamming it. Your other option is try everything on everything. To me, this high_score is because of pure nostalgia.
