    Overall it’s not a bad game… but I certainly wouldn’t be paying full price for it. The basic gameplay sees you moving from one room to another, collecting items where required and otherwise basically working out puzzles. The result is it feels like you are just overcoming obstacles to walking to the next spot… some of the puzzles don’t really seem to fit either… presumably ancient trap builders put puzzles on their doors but they just feel out of place.

    Adam’s Venture: Origins isn’t the best adventure game on the market, and the irritating protagonist will put many off, however, the puzzles are captivating enough to hold your attention for a respectable amount of time.

    and are accompanied along your journey with a lady named Evelyn.
    That’s right
    a story about Adam and eve set in the 1920s
    And as you may or may not have guessed, this game tries its hardest to be uncharted with puzzles, and it surprisingly comes quite close to pulling it off
    at least with the relationship of Evelyn and Adam..
    They are constantly going back and forth with each other giving the other a hard time, and I loved it...
    Their lingo did break the immersion a bit
    the banter seemed extremely modern for being set in the 20s
    I think it would’ve been even better if they threw in some copacetic and bees knees
    And while I loved the copacetic setting these chapters took place…
    Some laziness would coincidentally ruin things like the water for example…
    it’s completely non interactive...
    Even when it’s part of the main story path… no splashes… no weight…
    again breaking the immersion a bit…
    To add to the uncharted similarities, chapters go across the screen when a new one begins… there’s platforming, ropes to swing across… and then there’s the ancient treasure…
    you’ll take a trip to the garden of Eden as well as Solomon’s temple
    But unlike uncharted, there’s no combat here.. There are some sly cooper like stealth sections... but the meat of this game is its puzzles... admittedly some puzzles felt a little too close together.. But for the most part I felt like they were spread near perfectly through this 4 and a half hour journey.
    These puzzles are all fairly simple to understand and are ever changing throughout the game...
    sure you may do the same styled math puzzle 3 times in a row in one chapter… but you’ll never see it again later on…
    Some puzzles you may not get the rules too..
    I for example never understood the 2 dynamite puzzles...
    luckily I still got through them by winging it…
    so even if you’re stumped, you can get through most if not all puzzles by trial and error
    While Adam’s Adventure’s budget and lack of care for detail does show every once in a while..
    I completed the game wanting more...
    I laughed at the jokes…
    I cared about the characters... and I loved solving the puzzles
    Witch careful crafting, there’s some potential magic here…
    I give Adam’s Venture Origins
    a 7.5/10

Puzzle solving fans will surely have some fun with Adam but that comes with lots of frustration. With terrible voice acting, bad graphics and overall weird design choices it’s very hard to recommend this game. (sorry developers) Expand

This is supposed to be aShort, linear tomb-raiding adventure that offers little more than some basic platforming and cryptic puzzles. This is supposed to be a "re-imagining" of the franchise, but much of the optional loot and side-puzzles from the previous iteration have been stripped out and replaced with - nothing. Mundane voice-acting and cringe-worthy dialogue stand out. Even the stealth sections are a linear path. Only thing going for it are the nice graphics (CryEngine), but even that is tempered by some absolutely awful optimization. There is nothing to recommend here. Expand
