  • Summary: Can you alter Deponia's fate? Do you have what it takes to change Rufus' past, present and future without accidently destroying the whole planet? Fight time itself in this action-packed, platypus-tastic and insanely hilarious story.

    Full of atmosphere, funny and like LucasArts. Part 4 of the trilogy (!) stays true to its predecessors and that's how it should be. Please don't stop!

    Deponia Doomsday contains one of the greatest opening scenes we've ever seen in a Point 'n Click/Adventure game, featuring none other than David Hayter. It's a must-play if you enjoyed classics such as The Curse of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.

    I like the fact that Rufus returned to terrorize his environment. This destructive journey is a wild ride spiced up with time tiers. Classic point & click doesn’t get much better.

    Although in the new chapter Rufus is once again alive, well and goofs around as much as ever, don’t expect that he’ll get his “happily ever after” this time. On the other hand – who even needs that “ever after” when you’ve got a time machine? [Issue#208, p.57]

    Deponia Doomsday is an experience hardcore fans of these series will love. Its humour is as crude as ever, the story is confusing, and its characters are still missing a few vital brain cells. But with a beautiful art style and interesting puzzles, Daedalic has delivered yet another solid adventure game.

    The lovable-yet-flawed characters, the interesting, detailed environments, and the snappy story are definitely back again this time around. If you are new to Deponia, however, be prepared for some tedium and confusion to go along with the colorful fun.

    Faint return of the popular adventure series. Deponia still charms with its original concept and humor …and even Rufus lost none of his charm. The devs from of Daedalic bring us an adventure that is good only with its story, but not with a gameplay.

    Good potion of humor, surprising and funny story. In simple words this game is worth every minute of play time. I really loved the whole Deponia trilogy but this is pure gold and was a fantastic suprise for me as fan.

He's a meanie and an egoist and he provokes emotion. The humor is crude and snappy and the characters range from lovely to awkward. The 4th installation of this great series again is a delight to play! One of the best point and click games ever Expand

    Satisfying finale for the series: epic, funny, but also a bit messy and confusing.

I feel it's not the best in the series but keeps the quality high and has some really solid sections.

    A bit more linear in some parts but still overall a very fun game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I hate it when people give low scores because they did not like the ending (like many did with Mass effect 3). You played it til the end so have the decency to give the game credit for that. Seems very immature to me. It makes user rating obsolet when you rate it 0 because you do not like 1 thing.
    For me I did not like two things. First there was one puzzle which you had to solve by doing something which was normally not possible. The second thing was some puzzles had to be solved under time pressure. That was really annoying for me. You had to constantly save and load the game which in my opinion is not the way to play an adventure. Then at least add Quicksave and Quickload to the game. But I do not see the point in that anyway. But if you a fan of Deponia you should play it anyway. Maybe its just me.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. You are forced to die again in another idiotically contrived circumstance by the developers at the end of this game. There, I just saved a lot of you both time and money. Expand
