Reviews

“...for those with a taste for the creepy/weird and a willingness to see through the grime of the world into the heart of the spirit, Bad Mojo is an extraordinary adventure.”
100 – Four Fat Chicks

“Its world can be a little overwhelming to navigate at first but, beyond that, it excels with its anomalous premise, gritty style, and some of the most clever design in the genre.”
90 – GotNext

“Without a doubt, Bad Mojo is not for the faint-hearted.”
90 – GameSpot

I bought this Kafkaesque game back in 1996 and played and enjoyed it quite a bit it quite a bit even after finishing it the first time: In this a game, you play as the protaganist after having turned into an American cockroach (after an attempt at black magic based on greed gone bad) roaming around presumably trying to figure out how to turn back, though the game doesn't explicitly make clear quite what is going on. The extent of your abilities as the roach are to move up, down, left, and right, and interact with things by pushing them or using your weight or presence. The short term goals the roach needs to achieve (puzzles) are cryptically given in the form of poetic (rhyming) riddles that are often subtlely humorous; the puzzles themselves are quite challenging, possibly to the point of being frustrating for some players depending on their tolerence for or enjoyment of adventure game puzzles.

The developers and creaters of the game did a very good job in realizing a very dark and ominous game in tone, atmosphere, and mood. The music is also very good and fits perfectly. The Steam release also includes some extra content: the soundtrack (two compact discs worth) in mp3 and FLAC format, some videos with developer commentary, concept art, storyboards and more.

Bad Mojo needed a rerelease on something other than GOG, and it got it. Bad Mojo is a nasty, gritty adventure game about a man turned cockroach. It's a major displeasure to look at, and fittingly so. The game's pretty cryptic at first, being thrown into a sewer with no instructions, but if you continue exploring around, where you're supposed to be going will be guided pretty much. $5.99 isn't bad, as you get bonus material such as concept art. and the making-of documentaries along with commentary over the cutscenes, so, overall, if you're not squeemish, get Bad Mojo.

Well, my excitement was in vain. Apparently part of the puzzle is figuring out how to actually start the game.
