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

A simple but cute point and click adventure game using flash animation. Definitely not as good as Botanicula or Machinerium, but definitely worth giving it a try if the price is right. It's a short game with simple puzzles.

Hamlet isn't really a point and click adventure game in the traditional style, it's more of a hidden object / puzzle game, so ... tempered expectations if you are looking for a normal point and click. That being said it has a cute art style and story, some of the puzzles are actually pretty good although a few were sort of pointlessly grinding. It also has a pretty sweet soundtrack, although if you take a long time it just loops. It's nice that the hint system is in the game, but honestly I would have preferred a hot spot detection system in addition, or instead of the hints, which are often about as confounding as the puzzles themselves. I wouldn't pay a ton of money for Hamlet, but if you like point and click puzzles its worth a couple bucks and a couple hours of your time.

Dammit "Hamlet or the Last Game without MMORPG Features, Shaders"
I thought this was your usual Point & Click Adventure but it's not. (read the title again and figures)
The puzzle is more to comedy than real logic thinking.
At first, I have been fooled twice by the password and the crab and then I got fooled out by most of the puzzles afterward.

The story is really a comedy, there a bunch of parody. It's based on Hamlet by W.Shakespeare
After finishing the game, same as the hero I'm now wondering what I'm thinking when I click the play button?

I actually liked the game. The art is nice and the puzzles were fun. Some of them were a bit weird but still reasonable. Wish it was longer.

First of all: this is a SHORT point and click game. Really short. Although it's very fun and the graphics are quite beautiful!

The storyline is very simple, and has very little to do with the Hamlet of Shakespeare.

Even so, I do not regret one second of the hour that I spent playing this little game!
