This game makes no sense. It's the most illogical point&click I ever played (and I played dozens of them.) A few examples: You cannot walk to another area because there's steam blocking your way. It would be very easy to just walk around it, but the game won't let you. Just on the next screen, you cannot enter a field because there's a cable on the ground with high voltage going through it. It would be very easy to just jump over the short fence nearby, but the game won't let you.
You get the idea. It's the kind of puzzle design that a 5 year old child would come up with. That is some extremely sloppy game design. It's mind boggling how the designer of this game didn't think about this. Though I get the impression that whoever's responsible just didn't care.
The music and voice acting are excellent though.
From a technical perspective, the game is somewhat broken. The graphics are blurry and there are black bars to the right and left of the screen, even though I enabled the "wide screen" option in the game. That option is a lie; the game is not wide screen (for something to quality as wide screen, there must not be black bars on the sides.) It runs at the very weird resolution of 1280x800 with no way to set a sane resolution like 1920x1080, which has been the standard resolution for quite a few years now and every game has to support. Again sloppy design; whoever is responsible for this clearly does not grasp the concept of an LCD monitor's "native resolution" and that by not supporting it, the image will look very blurry. Again, I do not know whether this is incompetence or ignorance.
I cannot recommend this, unless you get it cheap from a deal or bundle, which is what I did. And even then, it feels like a waste of time, since every "puzzle" in the game makes you roll your eyes and wonder: "what were they thinking!?"
