Great point and click adventure.
I completed the adventure as it should be completed, with no hints or peeks at walkthroughs. It took me about 18 hours, so those people who claim to have finished this in 6 hours can only have used walkthroughs.
There are 10 chapters and each chapter progresses the story very nicely.
What I loved about this title was the dialogue, which was funny and made perfect sense. The voices of the many characters were all really well done and very much added to the atmosphere. Some of the characters are particularly brilliant, such as the debonnaire but daft Briscoe, the fabulous Buck who reminded me of so many people I've met in SE Asia (the developers really nailed that character), Sonia is the most hilarious and cagey dock side 'worker' ever, and of course the lead character, Morgaine, is a superb act. There are many more great and wacky characters that will be encountered that really do a great job.
The story is very interesting and really gets going in chapter 2. I have seen reviews criticising chapter 1, but it's a cute, short introductory chapter and great for story background. and takes about 45 minutes to playthrough. The ultimate quest, introduced by the eccentric English gentleman, Briscoe, is always the aim, though the journey there will take many twists and turns with lots of side quests.
I don't want to give away any of the plot, but I'll just say that the way the story dealt with a sad death was very touching indeed and one of the peaks of the title.
The graphics are bright and colourful and their cartoony style do the story lots of justice. Well done to the graphics team.
The puzzles are mostly fetch quests, dialogue threads and inventory matching. While these are mostly fun and do require thought and LOTS of experimentation, it would have been nice to have thrown in some other types of puzzles too. The few mini game type puzzles are on the weak side,
I liked the control system of clicking the dialogue to move it on as that way I didn't miss any important information and it allowed me to read it while listening, at my own speed. A good system. The inventory, as mentioned above, does require a lot of trial and error, but is perfectly fine.
So, overall, I really enjoyed this game, though I was not sure I would before I started playing it. I would strongly recommend it for 15 plus very entertaining hours (if played with no hints).
