    A great homage to classic graphical adventures and geek culture, with an excellent dubbing and attention to detail. It does have some illogical puzzles.

    Just like to asking Kevin Smith and at the same time Silent Bob to come with an idea for a graphic adventure, Randal's Monday is a visual, written and playable exercise of total Geekness. Completely reverential to all comics, films, series and games from the 80s to these days, this little indie Spanish graphic adventure could be considered as an spiritual game from the Clerks' crew. It is long, and with some puzzles where we have to use the Monkey Island kind of logic, but as funny and irreverent as South Park, and nerdy as a Comic-Con convention where Bill Murray has to live the same day again and again.

    Randal’s Monday features a ton of content and a decent amount of play time. Not to mention it’s unique and fun.

    Randal’s Monday doesn’t do everything right, but the things it does do right are daring, and in a genre that’s been lost to the ether for years, that’s definitely something.

    At best, Randal's Monday has puzzles that professors at the Institute of Moon Logic would point to and ask "What the hell?" They're nonsensical, poorly explained, reliant on the most painful 'try everything on everything' guesswork, and feel longer than being strapped to a board until Stephen Hawking's voice synthesiser has read out the entire works of Dostoyevsky.

    However, everything about Randal's Monday has been a disappointment and I can't really recommend the game to anyone. Maybe Randal should have just slept through Monday.

    Randal’s Monday is a mostly functional point and click adventure that buries itself under a mountain of flat, meaningless dialog. It doesn’t help matters that the game is structured to imply a higher caliber of writing.

Even if some crazyA classic adventure with an amazing story, enormous jokes, valuable freak references everywhere and creative puzzles. Even if some crazy inventory combinations make it a little difficult, a step-by-step guide doesn't let the player go mad. With around 12 hours of gameplay and a fantastic voice acting, I strongly recommend it! Expand

Wir haben es mit herausfordernden Puzzlen zu tun und finden eine Fülle von Verweisen auf die großen Klassiker der 90er wie zum Beispiel Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle etc. Es ist das perfekte Spiel für Liebhaber der „point and click games“. 100% Daedalic Style. Definitiv zu empfehlen! Expand

    Randal's Monday is very well done on the technical side. Crisp and clear cartoon graphics - mostly OKish voice acting and an interesting storyRandal's Monday is very well done on the technical side. Crisp and clear cartoon graphics - mostly OKish voice acting and an interesting story should score high. - But the puzzles are not always very well done, - sometimes, one has to fall back to the old click-adventure-behaviour .. which means, "combine everything in your inventory with everything and click on everything on the screen"

    The story starts a little slow but picks up.

    It is a solid adventure game that does not stand out much - neither positively nor negatively.

    The game starts with an unfunny, seemingly endless dialogue that climaxes with a puking scene, then goes back to more boring dialogues. AndThe game starts with an unfunny, seemingly endless dialogue that climaxes with a puking scene, then goes back to more boring dialogues. And I'm already out of here.

    Warning: The ratio play/watch is lower than even in a Telltale product, which I thought was only possible in 1980s Japanese games.

    Besides, the only actual playing I was allowed to do, combining two objects, was so stupid already that I can't be bothered. This is one of the weakest adventure games to ever step pixel into my monitor.
