I'm not good at writing reviews, so I'm gonna write a list because it's easier.
- Voice acting. Characters like Roehm, Kit and Rayford sound great.
- Puzzle design. Sometimes I did some clever things.
- 320x240. It's a pretty neat resolution. A lot of the artwork looks great, especially the backgrounds.
- Roehm. I like that he's got more personality and attitude. Similar games tend to have a main character with the personality of an apple. I'm not that fond of apples.
- That one guy wearing the clothing of the hero from Hero's Quest. He made me giggle.
- A lot of the writing is great.
- Voice acting. Sometimes there's reverb, sometimes it's muffled, sometimes the accents makes no sense, and sometimes the voice actor honestly isn't good at acting at all. Overall, I like the voice acting, but it's all over the place.
- Puzzle design. Most of the puzzles are fine, but it's easy to do puzzles in the opposite order, and it's especially frustrating when you're denied to do the solution because you haven't triggered an event elsewhere which is an arbitrary requirement. There's also a few puzzles where logical actions not only fail, but give you a generic "Can't do that."
- 320x240. I like the graphics, but with the exception of the character sprites a lot of it looks like it was scaled way down. It would have been interesting to see it go for a higher res look.
- The premise of being a bad guy is neat, but you're not really much of a bad guy. You fight bandits, help out people, and well, have a bit of a potty mouth. There's a ton of wasted potential.
- Bugs, oh so many bugs. Background objects rendering in front of character. Clicking on edge of screen to move to next screen can be a surprisingly large challenge, especially in windowed mode. Some scripts can get very confused if you do things in an unexpected order. And I was able to find a way to skip a sizable portion of the game because I like exploring too much.
- The combat is kinda dreadfully boring. But I'm willing to excuse the game for it as the combat is dreadfully boring in every game of this subgenre.
If Steam supported horizontal thumbs up, I would probably lean more towards that. People who eat up adventure games for breakfast will enjoy this, but others might just get frustrated. I am definitely thinking a sequel has great potential though.
