    This unique puzzle game is remade for the PlayStation 4, with hard but fun puzzles and an Indiana Jones like character, you'll be having a lot of fun with the game. Don't expect an AAA-title, just a very fun puzzle game.

    This remaster enhances the original, but also presents the same shortcomings. It's not a bad game, but it feels slightly outdated and it's not particularly long.

    Adam's Venture: Origins is fun, mainly because of its enjoyable story and engaging puzzles. However, its short length makes the price tag seem unreasonable, especially when you consider the fact that Adam's gameplay antics haven't exactly aged well.

    A pacifist game that could have been better, but as it is it's just a short and easy puzzle game.

    Adam's Quest Origins is a bad adventure game and a barely good puzzle game. The environments looks good to watch but tearing everywhere and a lot of others technical problem make it not very good to play.

    Adam's Venture: Origins is an harmless adventure; more than a bad game, it's a very bad remake.

    On a technical level, the game is simply a shambles, with amateurish animation and obtrusive texture pop-in accompanying your every step. [June 2016, p.87]

    I bought the game on sale at the PS store for 2.29 usd.
    Money vs. fun I give it a 10. If more expensive (say over 5) then I would rather not recommend it.
    Graphics and acting are not AAA or good quality indy developer though they are serviceable.
    The puzzles however are very fun and put you to think.
    They are very diverse (the game is short -took me 5 hours, most of it trying to figure out the solutions- and not repetitive at all).

    If you don't mind the dated presentation, and you are into puzzles, then I recommend this game.

It truly gets back to the basics, GAMEPLAY. The graphics are good not great but like i said the gameplay, especially the puzzles are what had me hooked from the beginning. My son (14) also became a little addicted and we had a blast taking turns getting thru the levels. I would definitely recommend. Oh and one more thing i liked was how this game doesn't take itself too seriously. Great humor thrown in at just the right times. Expand

    Adam’s Venture Origins

    Adam’s Venture Origins
    A surprisingly awesome adventure
    Adam’s Venture Origins is an action adventure puzzle game where you play as Adam…
    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

    Costo-Beneficio: pagué 0.20USD por él en la PSN.

    JUGABILIDAD:
    Si bien, del punto de vista de la exploración (porque no es precisamente una aventura) la jugabilidad es algo tosca y de precisión cuestionable, tampoco hay mucho de que quejarse considerando que el punto fuerte son los puzzles... por lo menos al inicio.

    Es claro que han puesto toda la energía en los puzles, que empezaron bastante bien, pero conforme vas jugando encuentras que pierden el carisma y se ponen bastante cansinos.
    Por lo menos hay una gran variedad (algunos matemáticos, otros de lógica, otros de percepción, e incluso el clásico de las tuberías).

    La dificultad es poco clara: hay algunos muy sencillos y hay otros muy complicados. Confieso que para un par de ellos tuve que pedir ayuda.

    Lo peor de todo es el sigilo que es pésimo. De verdad, es el peor sistema de sigilo que he jugado. Es patético.

    GRÁFICOS:
    Bastante simples. El diseño del protagonista me gustó y me gustaría verlo en mejor calidad.

    Los escenarios son muy variados, pero la iluminación es un problema puesto que hay lugares donde avanzar resulta complicado por la falta de visibilidad.

    SONIDO:
    Muy descuidado y sin justificación. Yo entiendo que no todos los juegos puedan (o quieran) tener gráficos de 10, pero el sonido es diferente. Tenemos juegos indies con audio increíble, así que el presupuesto no es pretexto en este aspecto.

    Hay partes en completo silencio. El silencio no me molesta, al contrario, cuando está bien implementado puede aportar mucho a la narrativa. Ahí tenemos TLOU como ejemplo.
    Aquí NO está bien implementado, pareciera que por algún error hay ocasiones en que simplemente no hay sonido.

    Los efectos son un tanto molestos.

    Las voces son bastante planas, pero algunos de los diálogos son un tanto graciosos de lo tontos que son.
