    Inked is a puzzle game with unique visual art style and perspective for the players, with emotionally touching story and deeper meaning.

    Despite some of the confusing mechanics, awkward camera angles and inelegant solutions, Inked is still very much a visual delight.

    Inked: A Tale of Love is a small and intense love story that will lead you to discover what you are willing to do in the name of this noble feeling.

    Without spoiling any more of the story, Inked will take you on an adventure of grief, loss, and healing. It does, as stated in the beginning, what good art should do: provoke thought and feeling. It is gorgeous in its presentation, but flawed in some of the execution of its gameplay features and controls.

    Inked offers up a selection of well constructed logic puzzles set alongside a well made, though potentially familiar feeling plot.

    The value of Inked lies above all in the ability to stage a small story of love and suffering through a very personal style and excellent visual impact.

    After a while, the small things kept adding up and made this potentially great game less and less enjoyable. There will be players who can overlook the issues and complete Inked, but I’m not one of them.

    When i first saw the trailer a few month ago i realized that its a unique puzzle game, after i played it I still have the same opinion. AWhen i first saw the trailer a few month ago i realized that its a unique puzzle game, after i played it I still have the same opinion. A different puzzle game with a absorbing story and nice music. The graphic is minimal but very professional and flawless. The controls are simple and gentle, but the puzzles and the whole game rhythm could be more various. Its a good game which can keep you awake whole night. Expand

In some places, the control is crooked due to which it is impossible to do one or another action, but rarely.
    The main minus for me is the main character: I hate people with such character.
