    The Wardrobe is an excellent game within it's own genre. The only "issue" is a lack of direction to the player if they cannot catch the subtle hints of what to do next. This is made more interesting due to the referecend and jokes made by Skinny made every time the player tries to move forward.

    The Wardrobe is a huge reference to ‘90s era of point and click adventures. Touch controls, budget price and the same good graphics already appreciated on PCs make this game a nice experience to play.

    The Wardrobe is a genuinely funny entry to the point-and-click adventure genre. Whilst the puzzles can prove to be a bit frustrating, its visuals and plot make this a worthwhile purchase.

    What were Day of the Tentacle, Maniac Mansion, and the Monkey Island games if not alternatively incredibly smart and way too clever for their own good? The Wardrobe probably won’t appeal to you if you don’t already love those games, but if you’ve been pining for the return of old-fashioned ‘90s adventure games, then you owe it to yourself to check this out.

    The Wardrobe is a point and click game that features a simple and pleasant visual style with a plot that will stand out for its peculiar humor. While its gameplay mechanics are simple and the game has no major flaws, it quickly starts becoming rather empty in its purpose. Its story, while short, does not take long until it feels dull and the overall experience does not fully immerse the player as it should.

    I wanted to love this game but it didn't let me. Very few puzzles were actually doable. Most of them were frustratingly unintuitive. And I'mI wanted to love this game but it didn't let me. Very few puzzles were actually doable. Most of them were frustratingly unintuitive. And I'm not asking to be spoon fed a solution. I'm asking for subtle hints. Not even. It's like the devs knew everyone would just follow a walk through and didn't care to provide a fun experience for people who like to put their minds to a test. Seriously, whoever says this game is "difficult" is 100% wrong. It's not difficult, it's just bad puzzle design. I can't read the devs minds and correctly guess what unintuitive action I should do next. It ruined the experience for me. I'm guessing most people don't want to say bad things about this game because it's an indie game - and I get the sentiment, but this game is bad and the devs should feel bad. 2/10

    Positives: Cool art style
    Fun story Interesting characters

    Negatives:
    Nonsensical puzzles
    You need to guess the solutions to puzzles because they don't make sense otherwise
    Unintuitive puzzles with no hints
