Ein Abenteuerspiel, das Ihre grauen Zellen strapazieren und Sie begeistern wird! Die Handlung spielt sich in einer Welt voller Wunder, Kuriositäten und Phänomene, die über das Vorstellungsvermögen hinausgehen.

Die rebellische Teenagerin mit dem schönen Namen Vio­lett wird aus der Zivilisation gerissen und durch ihre Eltern gezwungen, in einen weit entlegener Ort auf dem Land umzuziehen. Die kleine Städterin ist nicht besonders davon begeistert, dass sie ihre Jugendjahre in einer Einöde, weg von ihren Freunden und Vergnügungen verbringen wird. Sie stellt sich vor, sie werde tagelang in ihrem Zimmer sitzen und vor Langweile schlafen. Sie ahnt jedoch nicht, dass das Abenteuer ihres Lebens bald beginnt. Als sie auf dem Bett sitzt, bemerkt sie ein seltsames Licht im naheliegenden Mäuseloch. Neugierig nähert sie sich, greift in die Tiefe rein und plötzlich befindet sie sich an einem ganz anderen Ort, so bekannt aber entfernt, so schön aber gefährlich. An einem Ort, wo die Oper singenden Kröten niemanden überraschen, wo die Gartenzwerge Boten aus anderen Dimensionen sind und wo die Verfügung über Telekinsekräfte kein Erstaunen und keine Eifersucht wecken. Nur mit Schlauheit und Glück kann sie sich aus dieser kuriosen Welt reißen und zu ihren Eltern zurückkehren.

Zerbrechen Sie sich den Kopf an einem der zahlreichen verworrenen Rätsel, die Sie auf Ihrem Weg finden. Nutzen Sie die Telekinezekräfte, um die Gegenstände fernzubewegen und sich aus der Klemme zu helfen. Besiegen Sie die böse Frau Spinne, die Sie fangen und zur neuen Trophäe in ihrer Sammlung machen will. Erforschen Sie die schöne und verrückte Welt, die durch Alice im Wunderland und Dali-Werke inspiriert ist. Lassen Sie sich von der Musik, die sie auf Schritt und Tritt begleitet, verführen.

- Phantastisches Abenteuerspiel im 2,5D-Stil
- Einmalige Welt, die im Kaninchenloch versteckt ist
- Eine ganze Menge Rätsel zum Lösen
- Spannende Stimmung der Unruhe und Unwirklichkeit
- Die niederträchtige Frau Spinne, die Ihren jeden Schritt verfolgt
- Die Superkräfte, die Ihre Umgebung manipulieren lassen
- Wunderschöne handgemalte Schautafeln
- Phantastische Welt, inspiriert durch Alice im Wunderland und andere hervorragende Werke

This might be one of the hardest games I have tried to review so far, as far as pros and cons go.

The art style is very well done--a mash-up of cartoon mixed with very surreal objects and environments. It is quite an engaging atmosphere to traverse as you go from each distinctly different room to the next.

You start in a cage and you are on your own from there. It can be rather daunting trying to figure out what you are supposed to do, even from the get go, and you are going to be doing a lot of random clicking on objects that are both identified by a cursor change to let you know that an object is intended to be used or picked up, as well as interactive objects that you are offered no cursor change to signify whether or not it is something that can be used, picked up, or perhaps intended to later be used as part of the seemingly random puzzles that each room offers. There will be lots of orbs that you pick up, with no explanation whether these are merely collectables (which they are as it turns out, so far as I have noticed--I am just past the first "part" of the game) or "inventory objects" for puzzles.

If you don't mind thinking WAY outside of the box and relying mainly on experimentation (or a walkthrough) than this game has a lot to offer. It breaks the traditional mold of a point and click adventure game, and I have yet to decide whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I, personally, enjoy both point and click adventure games as well as hidden object games, and I grew up playing all of those silly Sierra and Lucasarts games that had you often using item in unexpected ways, so the culmination that is Violett is overall appealing to me. It certainly won't be for everyone, but if you can pick it up cheap or in a bundle somewhere, it is definately worth taking a look at. There is something very luring about the abstract areas that you explore, and while some parts are hair-pullingly frustrating, other parts cannot help but make you smile and want to see where else this odd game is going to take you.

Storyline: Annoyed emo chic Violett gets drags off to the "country" by her upset/angry parents to her uncle's (?) delapitated house, and ends up having a very bizarre adventure like Alice, Corinne or Dorothy (Wizard of Oz, movie; the OZ books are even more bizarre). The environments are a tad creepy in nonsensical, illogical and flat out bizarre type of way, much like Wonderland, Oz or where ever Corinne took place, are.
And to all those "there is no story line" complainers out there please explain to me how Alice in Wonderland made any sense at all, ever, in either book or any of the countless movies (and movie remakes). Violett's entire storyline occurs during the preliminary movie, and has absolutely no bearing on the adventure.

Puzzles: Unique and with some very obscure clues at times, plus the gamer really has to look at the details in the background to realize what to do in some cases. Good for that out of the box thinking and improving those observational skills. The logic for the puzzles is there, a tad obsure at times, I admit, but if the gamer takes the TIME to LOOK FOR and TALK TO all the characters, the characters will explain pictorially what to do.

Worst puzzle: Chimneys. Not difficult to figure out just timed. I knew what to do but was highly frustrated by the fact it took so long to do it. Only time I needed a hint, and the hint I needed was that the puzzle was timed. (It would have been easier to do with a reset button too.)
A side note to the puzzles and overall concept: this game makes far more sense and is far easy to play then Limbo.

While playing watch Violett. If she makes a negative Uh-huh sound while vertically moving her hands the gamer is on the wrong track. If she puts her hand under her chin in a thoughtful pose then the gamer is on right track. She is the best clue giver in the game.

For most gamers I would say the biggest drawback is actually taking the TIME to look around and examine the objects while thinking about what to do and where to do it. Half way through the game the gamer starts accumulating an inventory which needs to be used in another environment.

Collecting orbs: In my first playthrough I collected 80+, 90+, 90+ of the orbs. Unfortunately some of the green orbs are so well hidden the gamer needs a guide to find them. (They are invisible basically and the gamer needs to know exactly where they are.) Collecting orbs takes TIME, a keen eye, and just a bit of intuitive thinking. They are needed for the end game, so the more the gamer has, the better off the gamer is. (I highly recommend Dspecht's orb hunting guide.)

Overall: Wonderful game with whimsical if not fantiful music. Simple yet highly detailed environments. Logic puzzles based solely on the "thinking" of illogical characters (In other words, what to do would make sense to them, not us.) Admittedly the end game surprised me, I definitely was not expecting it.

Biggest drawback: TIME. From all the reviews and comments I have read after I played this game time seems to be the biggest complaint. This game took me a couple of hours to play through the first time, in a very leisurely and casual manner. I enjoyed it immensely, looking at the detailed environments, chuckling over the diary pages, and simply shaking my head in amusement at the overall bizarreness. This is not the type of game to speedrun or meant to do as fast as possible. This game is meant to casually stroll through, while doing things like solve puzzles. If an action packed speedrun type of game is what you want then this is not the game for you.

Although I did not like the characters and story much in the beginning the beautiful artwork and soundtrack created a captivating atmosphere that hooked me to this game.
I would absolutely recommend it.

(But play it in english.)

Very generic point and click game that was made for mobile devices. Linear puzzles that require you to do everything perfectly in order, otherwise you are just wasting time. Lots of filler content of walking between rooms that is unskippable.

*sigh*
Ok.
I don't want to do this, but sadly, I will have to downvote this game. This is hard to do because if only these game would have a couple of details done right, the experience would be so much different.

Let's start with the positive things.
The visuals are really well done, they are colorful and kind of trippy at times and that's awesome. I love it. Have you ever watched Coraline? You know, the creepy movie that doesn't look like it's going to be creepy so it's even more creepy? Well, this game seem to be heavily inspired by Henry Selick's film so if you liked it, this game should call your attention. The soundtrack is kind of good, I guess, it's not something mindblowing but it does goes well with the lore of the game.

Sadly... that's about it.
Puzzles in this game are horribly bad done and you start noticing it at the very beggining of the game. They just make no sense, most of the times I actually solve a puzzle I have no idea how I did it and when I do, I realise there is no logic to it. I frequently find myself just clicking around and hoping something happens, because when I think I have figured something out I realise that is not the way this game wants it be done.
The actual story of this game is not much better. Since there is no actual dialog, the only input you have from the characters is from communication bubbles showing drawings inside them (kind of like The Sims showing you what they want or what the are talking about). They mostly show items as hints but the problem is that it's difficult to understand what is being told or how you are going to do what you think is being asked. Actually, this game tends to not explain me where I'm going or what I'm doing and sometimes I end up picking items at random that I don't know how to use.
This is this game in a nutshell: completly confusion and frustration with a beautiful package.

So, should you buy it?
Well, not at full price. At least I wouldn't recommend it. But if you can catch it on a bundle or with a discount you might want to try it. Also, I would like to keep track on the developer's next work. I expect Forever Entertainment to learn from this mistakes and make an awesome game to recompense for this one :)
