The story has it charm and i feel good enough entertained for my playtime. The graphics could have sometimes more details (flowers or something) but most time they are really fine with charming and interesting creatures. Sound has positiv sides. The gameplay is good, with the many combination (see, speak, touch) items and places you can get/ find some funny dialogs. The game could be a bit longer but i think its good if you get 50 % discount. I give this game for his style 91 % for real Point and Click fans.

"This statue ain't moving. Pretty much like everything else in my life."
One of my most favorite genres is point n' click and Daedalics are THE titans of point and clicks. I learn more about the characters if I explore everything. It takes me a while but I'm in no hurry. After all, that's how point and click should be played. No such thing as speed run. Everytime Daedalics tell a different story that makes me want to stay with characters longer. A pity every story has an end. The day will come when you'll have to bid farewell to your fictional friends.

This time it's a story about Sadwick the sad clown and Spot the caterpillar - his handsome sidekick and best friend. Sadwick is a lovable character. He's a lovely satirist and a courageous boy. Complains about problems but still tries his best to do everything in his power and can't leave things undone. He's not your casual hero that likes making promises and then break them. He's more like an anti-hero that doesn't care about fame and glory. He just wants to fix the big end-of-the-world problem. The nightmare that he has been having turned out to be a good excuse to start exploring the world. He is very insecure and has anxiety problems so I can relate to him. I wish I were as brave as that kiddo. Sadwick isn't as stupid and useless as his older brother Ben makes him feel. I've always wanted to punch that guy for bullying Sadwick. I could never forget about the awesome talking rock bros - Ralv and Yngo, that wanted to enslave the world with a rock hard fist but sadly they couldn't do anything but lie about. Grandpa's underpants are more useful than arrogant Bobby the Chaski. I played it in english and I like Sadwick's voice. Not sure why people think he has an annoying voice. I think it's quite adorable.
That game has a deep meaning and I would hate to ruin it with spoilers.
I just wonder how many of us would like to preserve the world they've been living in without changing anything or whatsoever and for what price.

Look, i wanted to like this game but in the end I'd say its about as good as Edna and Harvey. The visuals were good and the story was decent but the voice acting was a bit annoying and all the puzzles were random. This game is extremely hard to complete without a walkthrough. The problem is I didn't like the main character just like I didn't like the main characters in the Edna and Harvey series. When you can't identify with the character, it looses its power. Still, it was an enjoyable enough of a game and I do look forward to its sequel. I still highly reccomend buying the daedalic pack on its 90% of sale. All the games combined are totally worth it. This game was decent but all in all, the Satinav Series is the best one.

Aside from it being a little confusing, I found it to be a fairly cute puzzle game.
