About the Game

Adam's Venture is a new action & exploration game. Brought to life from a third person perspective with the Unreal 3™ engine, adventure gamers are in for a real visual treat.

Set during the 1920’s, Adam’s Venture delivers a unique combination of action oriented gameplay with classic puzzle solving, that takes you on an epic journey to the middle East to discover the legendary Lost Garden of Eden – but an ancient evil tries to prevent you from succeeding...

The Search for the Lost Garden will be the first episode in the Adam's Venture series and introduces you to young explorer Adam Venture. Deciphering relics in an old Templar Church, Adam uncovers memoirs written long ago by a crusader who fought with Richard the Lionheart in the Holy Lands. The memoirs tell of a mysterious place with labyrinths of caves and grottos guarding the headwaters of four great rivers. Could this place be the legendary lost Garden of Eden? This discovery sets off a great adventure. Accompanied by Professor Jacques Saint Omair, and his girlfriend Evelyn, the team embarks on an epic adventure fraught with mystery, intrigue and danger in their quest to find the legendary birth place of humanity.

I can recommend this game series for:
- Adults who like casual adventures
- young teenager
- children

All three games are casual adventures with (for adults) very easy puzzels and a quiet simple, yet funny humor. The 'action scenes' and language contents are appropriate for the groups mentioned above. Playing as young adventurerer Adam Venture there is quite a bit of decent story that can be discovered during the three games. The graphics are pretty okay for an indie production, the voice acting is also quite good and the controls are very simple. With a very maximum of 2.5 hours of play time for each game the series might be suited for the impatient kind, but is surely disappointing for deep story lovers.

The game has to be play a little at a time, or it will seriously try your patience. This is mostly due to the controls being very crude, reminiscent of game controls of the 90s. The graphics and gameplay also felt to be of the same decade. The game was nicely nostalgic for me but, at the same time, I was frustratingly reminded of how freakin’ difficult it was to even be able to get the game character to walk in a straight line in games of the 90s!
The games simplicity might lead you to think it’s a kid's game, however, the in-game mini-puzzles are clearly too difficult for kids at times and come with no explanations.
I loved the mini-puzzles but would have liked the rest of the game to have matched their difficulty. Just skipping the invisible boarders enabling the character to actually fall from getting to close to cliff edges would have improved the game difficulty and experience immensely.

This game feels like a collaboration between a lazy puzzle designer, and a very very burnt out writer. Adam's 'venture' (get it?) has found what he thinks is the gardan of eden! And he has to solve the same 3 puzzles for the next hour to get in!! Beyond the logic puzzles there is also some jumping puzzles involved, but because of Adam's snarky and annoying one liners all I ended up doing was tossing him off a cliff as much as I possibly could. My ultimate suggestion is to skip this and move on to another series.

This game is a cheap knockoff of Uncharted, except without the action, intelligence, good voice acting, or halfway decent controls. Best avoided.

Jam-packed with ham-fisted biblical references and good old fashioned misogymy, this title is almost sure to offend anyone who is not a jesus-jacking homophobic ♥♥♥♥tard. The primary voice actor's smug tone and terrible delivery only serve to add a new layer of frustration to this bug-filled travesty. There is not one joke in the entire script that does not feel like it was penned by an insesnsate try-hard redditor. Clearly coded by gibbons, adam's venture's baffling game mechanics and flat uninteresting puzzles leave the player bored senseless amidst a meaningless snipe-hunt to open a ♥♥♥♥ing door. F-
