Graphics acceptable almost and a weird unnecessary cumbersome interface
I gave it 2 stars because of the amount of work that went into this . . . exercise
I think reading the book or listening to an audio version would be better than wading though this version.
The controls are unusual to take a kind view of them for example to open some doors it takes 4 mouse actions and nothing is achieved except you enter the space beyond the door. to read text your move your mouse in clockwise or counter clockwise rotation often having to rotate in the opposite direction as you have over shoot what you wish to read.
Most of the animation/films are shadow images like the first image above.
Clicking on newspapers if allowed brings up an old type newspaper but most items you cant click on and if you do they only show a blown up view.
Being able to blow up zoom views is done well and needed in some cases to read text letters etc.
There are No puzzles as far as i can tell and awards are given as you advance though the book and for no other reason as far as i can tell.
Sadly the amount of work spent on the art work and voice acting to tell the story is wasted due to the cumbersome interface
This could have been a MUCH MUCH better Application but was let down by the interface design and implementation
