It's a bit buggy in the jumping department but overall it has good humor. If you can get all the 3 games on sale it's worth it.

06 oct 2014, 60%, a good liitle game, if you want something smooth and easily done. The harder part is when tou have to run to do something. (run is is left shift, for the rest pretty standard control, but you cannot change them, and control are not made to do timed missions, but with multiples tries it can be done). 2 or 3 notch under first and second tomb raider with better graphic. But I liked playing it. Wait for a sale and buy the 3 games.

If you're looking for a fun action adventure type game then move along because this isn't it. This game mainly consists of seven (7) rooms in which you have to put popular biblical phrases in the correct order.

Pros:
  • Graphics are 'okay'.
  • Encountered no bugs or broken achievements.
Cons:
  • It is incredibly short. It can be finished within an hour,
  • Terrible controls. You can either use keyboard (WASD or arrow keys) or in part an XBOX controller but not all the buttons seem to be mapped correctly.
  • Bad camera angles. At times they change in such a way that you'll have no idea which direction you were going.
  • Unskippable cutscenes. Except for the end credits which you actually have to watch if you want the achievement.
  • All the puzzles are practically identical. And they're not much of a "puzzle" at all.
  • Religious overtones. I'm fine with religion in my media but this seems to be specifically targeted to Christian children. The main characters are even called Adam and Eve(lyn) and most the puzzles involve putting biblical phrases in proper order,
  • It is terribly easy. This game requires absolutely no skill at all to complete.

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.

The main character is in incredibly annoying. I think they were trying to go for campy, but they failed. I'm sure other people would have liked it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. The puzzles and the text of the storyline is heavy handed with Chrisitian Bible, and the biggest issue that I have is the english. If he is exploring an arecheoligical site thousands of years old, why is everything written in modern english. For gameplay reasons, I just accepted that particular quirk (same a how everything in the game is practically linked to fire to activate).

The graphics for the game is pretty inconsistent. Somehow, it always loads the low textures and after a second, it will finally load the high textures. Of course the game has a tendency of always loading the low textures until the character you are controlling is suddenly close by. And if the character moves too far away, it then loads the low textures again. I don't know why it does, none of the other games that I play does this. So I just have to assume it is a software issue.

Gameplay wise, it is a very simple point and click adventure. Of course, the game doesn't support the mouse at all, so point and click isn't a good comparison. Play this game with a controller, because the game with the keyboard is very annoying. Even then, the controller just makes it tolerable. The puzzles themselves are very simplistic and basic. If you are wanting a simple quick game, this is it. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother with this game.

If you're buying this for the 100% achievements, then go ahead and buy it. They are very easy and even easier if you follow a walkthrough. However, if you're buying this for the gameplay experience, then don't. It's awful. Like really bad. The camera view makes it nearly unbearable and the gameplay itself is full of Bible references and abysmal puns. 3/10 would not play again.

I haven't played the other episodes yet, but I cannot recommend this game. It's largely devoid of dialogue, and what little is there was poorly written. The voice acting is abysmal. The game looks pretty, but the puzzles are simplistic. Luckily, it's short, and the achievements are incredibly easy to obtain.

In the end, almost every puzzle was too easy and the entire game was on rails. The most difficult challenge of all was a toss up between camera boss and the voice acting endurance challenge.

Bible indoctrination disguised as a game. Would not recomend. Wanted refund, Steam wouldn't do it. Wanted it out of my library, steam wouldn't do it. Very unhappy with both Steam and creator.

That said, if you are lookig to indoctrinate your children or some gulible adult, this is the game for you.

Advertizes "Family values" which basically means Christian maxims and dogma.

There is 0% gaming value here, just a bunch of nice artwork rolled into 1 huge sunday school lession.

You navigate your avitar around to make the lession go forward. Puzzles are basically finding triggers and buttons. once you find the trigger you are rewarded with yet another lession.

I highly recomend this game to anyone who wants to brain wash their kids into mythology and christianity.

It's ok if you're looking for a quick, cheap game to occupy you for an hour or two. I bought it because it was advertised as an action aventure / puzzle game, but it's not very satisfying as either of these. The controls are frustrating owing to constant switching of camera angles that the player has no control over, there's only one path for you to follow for the entire game (meaning there's not really any "adventure"), and there are only a handful of repetitive puzzles which offer no real challenge. I was surprised, after finishing it, that it was only released a few years ago, as it feels like 90s game.

On the plus side, it's very cheap and the achievements are easy to collect. Buy this if you like your games with a hint of nostalgia, and like feeling really smart.

I read the reviews beforehand, but for less than a dollar fifty, thius game was great value and entertaining for the 3 hours it took me to play it. The graphics are lovely and sometimes there is a nice build up of tension.
Yes, it's a simple story with no real character development or background. Yes, most of the puzzles are easy 9and some are repetitive), though on two occasions I was stumped for a while on how to solve them.
But for less than a couple of dollars, it's a great way to spend 3 hours and a bit of a bargain.

This entire game thrives on the puzzles and the writing. The puzzles really aren't that great and never get to the point where there's a sort of fun challenging. The only real defining trait of the main character is that he likes to crack jokes, but the writers really weren't that creative in making dialogue for him, so more often than not, that falls flat.

I got the game as an impulse buy, and forced me to play it from start to finish. To make things short: the game is short and somewhat dull. Not bad, but not good either. This review applies to the three games in the series.

The story is about an adventurer called Adam Venture. He is your typical reckless guy that wants to show off how cool he is. A corporation has hired him in order to help with the excavations at the Gates of Eden. He starts the adventure with his father female assistant and a professor. She plays the role of the lady that has brains but that gets into usual trouble. The professor is a secondary character.

The gameplay consists in two different styles: platforming and puzzles. Platforming sequences are dreary. Sometimes you need to jump on top of crates and it is fairly difficult to get right on top of them. Sometimes you need to run as fast as possible in a timed event. Most of the time you just navigate the scenary. The puzzles are either on the easy side or assume you have beaten similar puzzles in the past. There are no hints, so if you are stuck, then you are stuck. Puzzles do not have any time limit. Puzzles resemble Layton games somewhat. The puzzles get more involved by the third game, just more tedious. Each game has its own set of puzzles. For example, the first game tends to force you to order a sentence. Each of the three chapters is short, as in five hours total.

There is no action in the game, even if it looks that way. This is a kid friendly game, and the most you see are some explosions, but nobody is hurt. In fact, I would say the game is Catholic oriented: you visit both Gates of Eden and Temple of Solomon. Some puzzles do get some hints to the bible, though. Fortunately, you do not really need to know much about the Bible - the game does give you some hints on what God did during Genesis.

Dialog is just for the non interactive cutscenes. There is some sexual friction between the two protagonists, but nothing more vulgar than "you got the looks" or so. I am not sure what is the worst: voice acting or writing. The characters are sterotyped and might get you into your nerves. Most puns I recognized, but they were not too funny.

Technically, the game is OK. There are some odd selection of choices from time to time, but nothing major. The scenary is varied and art assets generally look OK. First game is played inside a cave, so you get a lot of clay-alike colors. Second game gets a lot more variation, specially when you get into Jerusalem. Please note that even if the game page tells you there is partial support for gamepads, I could only use the gamepad at the main menu, not in game.

Even if I played the game from start to finish, it is a hard shell. It is OK to waste some time on this game, but the game pays a penalty on being somewhat short and its puzzles being repetitive inside a chapter.
