    Another good way to play the psychedelic adventures of Watracio Walpurgis. A really fluid version of an episodic title that wins as its next parts are added, because a single chapter still knows little. In portable mode, it's the best way to play this game.

    An odd trip down memory lane. It contains elements of classic titles presented in a way that makes sense within the genre. It is currently $5.99 USD in the Nintendo eShop. If you are looking for a goofy couple of hours of gameplay, it is hard to find anything like it.

    Baobabs Mausoleum Volume 1: Ovnifagos Don't Eat Flamingos is a very strange game, both boosted and busted by its own quirkiness. It's got some definite faults in its grab-bag of gameplay styles and settings, but there's still a macabre charm hiding underneath all of the jank that goes along with so seemingly-unclear of a vision.

    Baobabs Mausoleum is comprised of several wild ideas which have been perfectly incorporated. It goes from small and simple puzzles to truly ludicrous situations, as seen in literature of the absurd. Nevertheless, this chest full of colour gets grey due to some technical deficiencies.

    Baobabs Mausoleum is an episodic game, and while the first episode is aimless for the majority of the couple of hours it takes to get through it, the cliffhanger ending introduces actual stakes. Should future episodes take the time needed to flesh out the characters and give us the chance to explore Flamingo’s Creek, the potential shown in the game’s trailer might be realized.

    Baobabs Mausoleum Episode 1: Ovnifagos Don't Eat Flamingos tries so hard to emulate its influences but misconstrues the difference between inspiration and imitation. Had it toned down the references might’ve been a more original game, maybe even an interesting one.

    Baobabs Mausoleum is a simple point-and-click adventure spiced up by a few annoying minigames. With the exception of the music, it's terriblyBaobabs Mausoleum is a simple point-and-click adventure spiced up by a few annoying minigames. With the exception of the music, it's terribly amateurish in every respect, from the pixellated graphics to the mistake-ridden broken English dialogues. And I'm still glad I played it.

    It's not hard to imagine how this game came to be: some guy took a few too many mushrooms and decided to make a game. He didn't try to do it right–he did it exactly the way he liked it. Baobabs Mausoleum is a honest, unique game where nothing is normal, from the protagonist (an FBI agent who also appears to be an eggplant) to the setting (a city that can only be visited once per year in your nightmares).

    I considered giving Baobabs Mausoleum a 5, because of the simplistic gameplay and the extremely frustrating 8th act, where the messy graphics really get in the way of playability. Yet, I couldn't stop myself from bumping up its score. This game is worth playing for the same reason that some Z-movies are worth watching: because it's bad but fun, and you can see how much fun its author was having while building it.
