Great Animation of Steampunk Insects, excellent puzzles
I really enjoyed this game because it had several unique features that set it apart from many of the other games in this genre. It has a compelling and original storyline and some excellent animation including battles between robotic insects. The quirky feature of the game is the real actors who appear in various roles, they were all rather endearing in an odd sort of way and did not detract from the game. The puzzles were excellent with many orginal ideas and beautiful mechanisms that tied in perfectly with the game, The HOGs were clear, bright and interactive. There is an in game journal that records all the important information and includes some pointers for the way forward and includes videos of the animation sequences. Word of warning - you do not want to play this game if you have arachnophobia. There were a couple of points in the game where I got stuck and almost abandoned the game because there was no strategy guide to help. First point was at the butterfly incubator (the thermometer has a slider on it to raise the temperature which is not very clear) and the missing radio button (which is tiny and easily overlooked in the cave) - had to replay game a couple of times before I got past these problems, Glad I persevered.
