Reviews

“This is a creative little point-and-click adventure. It's short, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as long as it lasted.”
7.5/10 – IGN

“Vying for the longest and most irreverent game title of all-time, this quirky point-and-click puzzle-adventure comes to us from Russia. It blends the spirit of Zak & Wiki with a wonderfully implausible re-imagining of the classic Shakespeare play for added nonsense.”
7/10 – Eurogamer

An absolutely terrible puzzle adventure game. NONE of the puzzles make any sense whatsoever. If you are interested in game design, play this game to learn how to make the least intuitive puzzles possible. The only good thing about it is you can beat it in an hour.

Hamlet is adorable. The game is witty and fun, but it is short. As in, it took me right at an hour to finish it all.
Some of the puzzle made no logical sense, so you ended up just randomly clicking on things until something moved or you advanced. There are two puzzles in particular that really are annoying considering the stiff mouse controls.
I know this game is cheap, but I would still wait for it to go on sale. It is fun for an hour's worth of time-wasting, however.

Hamlet (or “the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders and Product Placement”, which is likely one of the worst video game titles ever conceived), is a point in click adventure game loosely inspired by Shakespeare's classic play of the same name. Its goal is clearly to lend a more comedic angle to the tragedy, but the result is something that comes off as both underbaked, and exceedingly dumb.

Aside from a few characters sharing names from the original Hamlet, and a few key parallel plot points, Hamlet the game is basically an entirely different, less involved story that on the whole is rather irrelevant and constrained to a few brief between act cutscenes.

The rest of the game is a pure single screen adventure game, by which I mean every puzzle is contained within the one screen of the game it takes place on with no collecting of objects or backtracking of any sort. This isn’t an awful way to construct your puzzles as it makes it impossible to get lost or overwhelmed by having everything right in front of you at all times, but it also creates a very constricting spectrum of the sorts of puzzles you can create. Or at least that’s the case with Hamlet, whose puzzles range from tedious obscurity, frustrating clicking exercises, or downright stupidity. They aren’t challenging in any clever way, and mearily stand as obstacles between you and the next screen.

And this is Hamlet’s ultimate issue: nothing in the game is smart, well designed, or the tiniest bit fun. It took me an hour and a half to complete and not once did I feel anything less than complacent boredom as I mundanely made my way through the game hoping it would soon be over, which thankfully was a wish soon answered.

It isn't worth $5 but it is somewhat entertaining for the hour or so you can spend playing it. Anybody who complains about it being short should look and see beforehand that it only takes 100mb of HD space.

If you love unorthodox puzzles, this is the game for you. I found myself staring at the screen for nearly an hour on one puzzle. It is very short and beatable within a day. Would love to play the Romeo and Juliet one (if it does come out) and would hope that it's longer!

Well, Steam says I have 3.3 hours on record for this game, but that's mainly because I went afk for 2 hours with the game still running.

The game is really short. It literally has 25 puzzles. Yes, you can actually count them. Is it good though? I found the artwork quite nice, but that really depends on what taste you have. The humour was okay, the premise was funny. Sound, however, is almost non-existent, and the few "boink" sounds get a bit annoying after a while.

I wouldn't recommend it for full price, but if you get it in a bundle or on sale, it's kind of fun.
