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 bought every Adam's Venture game for $1.74. Ill tell you this, I wish I hadn't. The game itself goes on for maybe 1 hour or 2, and just feels like a very cheap knock off of Uncharted. As for the story, heres how it goes: You are Adam Venture (sooo funny) and with your girlfriend Eve, you go in search of the lost garden of Eden. Aside from the not-so-subtle Biblical references, the game throws passages from the bible at you via word puzzles, which honestly are too easy to be called puzzles. And even so, the puzzles might be the best thing about it; the controls for this game are worse than Tomb Raider (1996), and that's saying something for a game released in 2009. The graphics leave something to be desired, though the pretty shading and lighting effects from Unreal Engine 3 makes the bland, low quality meshes and textures look somewhat decent, and defintely more appealing than the animation, voice acting and the lip-syncing.

Overall, if you could spend your money on anything else, spend it on that. This game is just a cheap, preachy excuse for a game.

I recommend this game to anyone look for easy achievements, the gameplay itself is very lacking, the puzzles are extremely easy. I'd Recommend it if it didn't take me about 30 minutes to complete the first Episode (the rest of my gametime was just me being AFK or on the phone) and if the puzzles weren't all the same 3-4 puzzles over and over again... and so bloody easy.

BUYER BEWARE: The whole game is basically a cheap advert for Christianity, so if you don't like Christianity, don't buy it. I myself don't care really... though I'd have preferred to know before I bought the game, else I personally wouldn't have bought it.

Adam's Venture is a simplistic puzzle adventure game. This first episode can be completed in roughly 90 minutes. The puzzles are extremely easy and the gameplay feels like a dumbed down Tomb Raider game. Voice acting and the animations are reasonably done, but there's hardly enough content to provide any real sense of satisfaction. But then again, I've certainly played a lot worse.

A simple little Uncharted/Zelda style adventure game. Puzzles are uninspired, more like logic puzzles than game puzzles. It's not bad, and worth a play if you want a short adventure game. Also you can get all achievements in about 90 minutes if you are one of those people.

This game is as cheesy as hell but can complete in less than 2 hours and pick up 17 achievements and 100% complete to add perfect games to your list. The game itself is ok. It's kind of a much lower end Tomb Raider. I was getting frustrated with he character jumping like a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ but it's worth a play and some of the puzzles are quite challenging.
