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

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?

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!

I picked this up on sale for 50 cents so keep in mind that this review is based on it costing very little. Normally this game costs $5. This game is not worth $5! I say this because it is incredibly short. The entire game takes 1 - 2 hours and it has no replay value. The puzzles are quite unique so even if you haven't played the game in a few months you would remember how to solve the puzzles.

That being said, the art style is lovely, music is nice and the puzzles are different. The one puzzle in this game was beyond frustrating. After 10 minutes I admitted defeat and asked for a clue. After staring at the clue for another 10 minutes I went onto google images. I like these point and click puzzle games and to be honest with you I would rather play a short game like this where the puzzles are clever instead of something a bit more long winded like Puzzle Agent where the puzzles are designed by flipper handed freak children that you play over and over again because the guys in the clever department took off early for lunch and never came back somehow...

So... worth it if you pay under $1 or otherwise it's just too short to validate spending that amount of money. Doesn't come with cards or achievements but heck, kept me entertained for an hour and a half.

6/10

I loved this point and click game. The graphics are simple yet appealing. The challenge is in between. Some levels are really easy and obvious whereas others are so confusing. With enough clicking you'll find SOMETHING but the great thing about this game is that sure some levels you can just click randomly and get it but others you have to be observant. And on some levels you just have to be quick! Great puzzles and keeps your attention while keeping you entertained. The puzzles aren't the same thing over and over and it doesn't necessarily get harder as you go on, it switches and depends on what kind of puzzles you're good at. Great overall.
