    Demetrios – The BIG Cynical Adventure is a quirky point n’ click title with a perfect blend of smart, mature, and pop humour that tells a refreshingly new story without pushing itself into the realm of slapstick exaggeration for the sake of a gag.

    While it may look like a dirty cartoon, Demetrios: The BIG Cynical Adventure is endearing and eminently playable.

    It is easy on the eyes, fun to listen to, and its cruel satire and toilet humor make it an entertaining journey from the beginning to the end. The game would benefit from more fleshed out gameplay and more imaginative puzzle design, but it is still one that left me wanting to see more out of this developer in the future.

    Even without state of the art graphics, Demetrios stands strong with its solid length, charm and humor so rarely seen in modern gaming.

    Demetrios is a solid point and click title from Cowcat. It is point and click and dialogue-driven, even to a fault at some points, but the difficulty will be enough to offer up a challenge to those who love the genre. Demetrios certainly isn’t perfect, much like its main character, but it is intriguing enough to warrant a go.

    Some may find Demetrios‘s outlook offputting, but if you like your humour on the snarky side you’ll find a surprisingly substantial adventure here.

    If it sounds like this is all being to harsh on The BIG Cynical Adventure, it’s only because the game makes it too easy to be cynical right back at it. The one-man development efforts of Cowcat are to admired, but they sadly can’t save the end product from being purely mediocre.

    An excellent adventure game, with lots of stupid things happening.
    Demetrios is different from what you'd usually expect from a Point & Click
    An excellent adventure game, with lots of stupid things happening.
    Demetrios is different from what you'd usually expect from a Point & Click but in a good way. Usually I'm not really into this kind of games, but this one got me hooked and I couldn't stop playing for hours.

    The story could be a bit more fleshed out but overall it's a very good game with a great soundtrack and a lot of fun.

If you like original humor and don't mind some childish jokes, then you're in for a treat. It's very long and attractive with nice cartoon art. The puzzles are logical and varied, the screens have a lot of things to click on and it has a nice story. I really enjoyed the the gameovers and cookies collecting!
    I recommend it!

    It's a good game, a worthy graphic adventure that call your attention in to go forward to see what's next.

    PROS: Very easy to play + Long
    It's a good game, a worthy graphic adventure that call your attention in to go forward to see what's next.

    PROS: Very easy to play + Long game + Several jokes are funny + Controller support + Lots of puzzles + Characters are cool + Use of objects

    CONS: Too many dialogues (and you must press A button every time a text turns up) + Sometimes humor is too silly + Too many objects in almost every screen to examine

Sin embargo, pese a ser el primer título de la compañía, Cowcat Games nos ha regalado un título lleno de humor, con una historia absurda y unos personajes rocambolescos, todo ello basándose en una de las mejores sagas de todos los tiempos como es Broken Sword.
