Worth getting!
by Mitch T., USA - Apr 22nd 2017

Reminds me of Punch Club the way it plays. Wish you could do everything but there aren't enough hours in the day :X
Humor is on point, this was a pleasure to play.

Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink Collector's Edition Icon
Manca l'italiano, ma non manca la qualita'
by Roberto Guarchi, Italy - Apr 22nd 2017

Una delle prime produzioni Artifex, ma piena di qualita'. Anche se manca la lingua italiana, è comunque giocabile con soddisfazione utilizzando l'inglese. Nulla da eccepire: storia coinvolgente in stile "steampunk", scene con oggetti nascosti facili da affrontare, mini-giochi complicati al punto giusto, filmati ben fatti, così come le musiche e le immagini. Il capitolo bonus è semplice ma comunque apprezzabile. Molto simpatica l'interazione con Matthew, un volatile meccanico che vi aiuter in più occasioni. Complessivamente, lo consiglio. Ovviamente, per noi italiani vale la pena acquistarlo se è a un prezzo scontato...

[One of the first Artifex productions, but full of quality. Although lacking the Italian language, it is still playable with satisfaction using English. Nothing to dislike: Steampunk style engaging story, hidden object scenes, easy-to-play mini-games, well-made movies, as well as music and images. The bonus chapter is simple but still appreciated. Very fond of interaction with Matthew, a mechanical flyer that helps you on multiple occasions. Overall, I would recommend it. Of course, for us Italians it is worth buying if it is at a discounted price.]

Corto Maltese - The Secrets of Venice Icon
Atmosfere, ma non per tutti
by Roberto Guarchi, Italy - Apr 22nd 2017

Un'avventura grafica che potra' piacere molto ai fans di Hugo Pratt e Corto Maltese (come me) e decisamente meno a chi non conosce questo mondo. Si tratta di un'indagine di gusto poliziesco basata su puzzle e rompicapi spesso slegati completamente dal contesto narrativo, e quindi il game può lasciare interdetti. Di contro, la presenza di sequenze animate tratte dai vari volumi dell'opera di Hugo Pratt e il rimando costante alle atmosfere tipiche delle avventure di Corto Maltese rendono il gioco godibile ed in alcuni tratti persino affascinante. Imperdibile per gli amanti del genere, consigliato a tutti gli altri solo se a prezzo scontato.

[A graphic adventure that can be a lot of fun for fans of Hugo Pratt and Corto Maltese (like me) and definitely less to those who do not know this world. This is a puzzle-based puzzle investigation and puzzles that are often unconnected completely from the narrative context, so the game can be left out of the way. On the other hand, the presence of animated sequences drawn from the various volumes of Hugo Pratt's work and the constant reference to the atmospheres typical of the adventures of Corto Maltese make the game enjoyable and in some even fascinating traits. Not for such lovers, recommended to everyone else only if at a discounted price.]

Dungeons 2 Icon
Fun but not very challenging
by Rogier Flikweert, Netherlands - Apr 22nd 2017

If you liked the original Dungeon Keeper games this game is for you.
Get the expansion a Game of Winter if you are looking for more challenge.

Dungeons 2 - A Game of Winter Icon
Great expansion
by Rogier Flikweert, Netherlands - Apr 22nd 2017

Adds more challenge to the game. I also really liked the addition of Barthas as your champion for both his interaction with the narrator and other characters, and his function as a general for your troops.

Shrouded Tales: The Spellbound Land Icon
Good game
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Apr 21st 2017

A good HO puzzle game to begin a new series. I found it grew on me as I progressed and I bought the sequel on the strength of this game! Story good.

Shrouded Tales: Revenge of Shadows Icon
Good sequel
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Apr 21st 2017

Tried the first game in which we meet our heroine and enjoyed it, this one follows on with the story and the puzzles don't disappoint either.

Syberia 3 Icon
Lost Lands: The Golden Curse Collector's Edition Icon
realMyst: Masterpiece Edition Icon
Still the best adventure game universe ever...
by LunaNik, USA - Apr 21st 2017

...and the benchmark by which I measure game storylines. Most fall short. It's hard to top a fictional race of people with the ability to create universes by writing books, isn't it? Most developers don't even try, sadly.

The environments are as beautiful and heartbreaking as I remember them; the animation just brings them more to life. Gameplay remains as much of a challenge as it was originally, and when I finished playing, I had pages and pages of handwritten notes, diagrams, and clues.

I also had a deep sense of accomplishment, something most modern games don't provide because their puzzles are far too easy. When you've solved the underground labyrinth in the Selenitic Age, you tend to scoff at childish puzzles like matching pairs, the Towers of Hanoi, 12-piece jigsaws, and Simon Says. That's not gaming! It doesn't even require neurons!

Lastly, the music remains one of the best game soundtracks in the history of gaming. I've listened to it regularly for more than 20 years; it still makes me smile and whisks me off to the island of Myst. I'd love to see realRIVEN and the entire series updated for modern computers.

Obduction Icon
CYAN ROCKS
by Wiljali, Australia - Apr 21st 2017

I love this game. Thanks Cyan!! I loved the Myst series back in the day, and so bought this as soon as I saw it on Mac. Beatuiful scenery to wander through, tricky puzzles that get you thinking and an involved story line (which is a puzzle in itself). A step up from other adventure games. The best. Everything else that I have ever rated should automotically lose a star. GOLD!!
