    The Inner World deserves your time, and for the price, it really shouldn’t be missed. Take yourself to this world of zany characters and have a chuckle for a good while, all whilst testing your problem solving skills.

    The humor will constantly having you crack a smile or smirking, and you can’t help but get the sense that The Inner World was a labor of love. Simply put, The Inner World is endearing and charming and I’m glad I got to experience it, as should you. If you’ve been craving a great point and click adventure, or simply want a game with some fantastic visuals, audio, and narrative, look no further than The Inner World and spend a wonderful few hours in the world of Asposia with some memorable characters.

    On the whole, The Inner World is a fantastic puzzle game, not to mention a seamless port from PC. A deeply engaging world, satisfyingly challenging puzzles, and a fun story make for a truly wonderful playthrough.

    The Inner World is quite a delightful surprise that manages to keep you hooked to the end with its charming personality and best-in-class hint system. I definitely recommend it for fans of 2D point-and-click adventures and casual gamers alike.

    The Inner World is a classic point-and-click adventure in the magical land of Asposia. We will be Robert, he is on a journey in which logic will not always be helpful to solve the situations that you will find in your path.

    For players on another console or who are a little luckier with bugs than me, I’d say that The Inner World is generally an enjoyable experience with cute animations and quirky humor — I would definitely recommend it, and based on the number of times my boyfriend turned off his own game to watch me play this one, I would say it’s also good for friends to play together.

    The Inner World has the heart of an adventure game, but its execution can only be likened to a dilettante’s exploration of the point-and-click genre. Asposia is an inventive world full of personality, but even despite the game’s goofy nature, the puzzle design is unfair, and frankly, indefensible. The game is a respectable dabbling in the genre, but when Robert’s adventure finally reaches its conclusion (and it will have you saying ‘finally’), don’t expect to feel like you accomplished much of anything at all.

The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk is not a bad game at all but it also offers nothing different, so I can unfortunately see it getting lost in the vast amount of point and click adventures that are already out. I will say though that this game has some of my favourite puzzles I’ve played this year and that’s mainly down to the clever design. Some of the puzzles however are a little too difficult and in my opinion they didn’t need to make them this difficult. The story which is very important in a game of this type is thankfully very good and they’ve done a good job of keeping things charming and interesting throughout. I do however feel that the voice over work could have been a little better and in my opinion this takes away from the very good story. The controls in the game surprised me because even though they were originally designed for the PC they remain responsive throughout and they never felt awkward, which is great. The presentation side of the game is something I really enjoyed and it definitely lends the game a certain charm. Visually the art design is packed full of colour and lots of detail, and the accompanying music really makes the game stand out in a good way. I did notice however that the game suffers with some animation problems and this can harm the immersion at times. At the end of the day The Inner World: The Last Wind Monk is a decent addition to the genre, but unfortunately it doesn’t offer anything different from the spate of games we’ve already seen this year. It also suffers with a few problems that took my score down a peg or two and these problems could have easily been avoided. If you’re a fan of point and click adventures then you will find some enjoyment here, but in my opinion there are better games for you to play in the genre. Expand
