This game has a number of things going for it but some pretty major flaws. It is an interesting mix of point and click and shooter. The characters are well designed and likeable. The voice acting is good and I love the word play. The story as far as it goes is decent but there is no getting away from the fact that this is only half the game; just as it gets into its swing the game ends. There are a couple of frustrating bits too where I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to be doing. So as long as you manage your expectations then this game provides a few hours of enjoyable entertainment.

I'm only 9 minutes in and I've probably encountered about a dozen insect puns.

It doesn't bug me at all.

I have no idea why this game gets such bad reviews. I had a lot of fun with it, never expereinced any bugs, played it to the end, and was really impressed overall. Is it a AAA-quality title? Of course not. Is it a very inexpensive, fun little hybrid action/adventure game with clever dialog, fun story, and good-enough gameplay. IMO, yes!

Really the only problem is that the game is only Part 1 and there will apparently not be a Part 2.

Background: Picked up during the summer sale for pennies. Apparently it's an upgrade of a 2008 DS game with improved visuals and audio, part 2 was never released but you can complete the story on youtube via officially released cinematics.

The Good:
* Great story and plotting that mix things up
* Characters and voice acting are fantastic
* Self-aware quips make the characters stand-out
* Fun mix of gameplay styles show depth right from the start

The Bad:
* Looks dated, the pixelated cut-scenes especially
* Awkward controls for interacting with characters but you get used to it
* Mismatched lipsync is distracting
* Combat is simplistic and weapons lack impact
* Half a game that stops just as things are moving

Impressions: Looks dated with low-rez cutscenes, awkward controls and mismatches mouth to voice work.. but in the first 10 minutes I was impressed by the story-telling, characters and gameplay. Reminds me of the first time i played Sam & Max.

Recommended for: Noire detective fans who don't mind some run n gun n puns.

Conclusion.
7/10. Shines through its limitations to be memorable and a lot of fun.

I bought this game for $0.29 (on sale) and I enjoyed it more than CoD: Ghosts which I bought for 60 dollars, enough said.

There is no Part 2.

Part 1 isn't bad, is actually pretty decent...but the fact that you are only getting half a game will bug you.

Being a platform-shooter/point-n-click detective game it is interesting to say the least. I picked it up for cheap during the holiday sale soley based on the fact that it kinda looked like Psychonauts and I have a soft-spot as well as a hard-on for platformers. Unfortunatly this game completely comes off as unfinished and under budget. It has the means to be an ok if not a good game but the bugged controls, fairly crappy graphics (ESPECIALLY during cutscenes), and flat out lack of quality sadly pretty much ruins it. Coulda, shoulda, and probably woulda did things differently if they could have, maybe if someone tested and polished it, maybe, who knows. Definatly worth trying if you can get it cheap (I got it for $0.74) or if you like point-n-click puzzle/detective games...

I liked this game mostly, but it doesn't matter since there is no part 2 and never will be so don't bother buying it.

The game features some really flat third-person platforming and shooting that never feels good or fun. It also has a point-and-click style "detective mode" that never really delivers on what you would want with that genre of games. The only thing this game has going for it is the voice acting and characters.
