This game is a short free to play story. It's actually just the 1st chapter. You can finish it in 1 hour. It seems that the whole story might be interesting. I enjoyed the 1st chapter. Even thought it's short and it's just about your escape. Liked the game visual and the gameplay is easy. Will buy the 2nd chapter when it's on sale. I wanna know what's gonna happen next. The full price is expensive (in my currency at least), especially because I've read that it's not as short as the 1st one, but still too short. Had fun playing it. I recommend.

Oh those amnesia stories…how much I loath them. To me, those storylines are a total copout of trying to tell a suspenseful plot by ‘discovering’ your past. Yet some have done a reasonable job like Stalker and XIII. This game Reversion – The Escape is a difficult one to state whether this amnesia copout plotline holds up as it forms part of a trilogy. Being the first one, there’s not much to say as your main goal is to escape the hospital and because it only last one hour, its best-selling point is that it’s free, and there’s nothing wrong with that unless you want to continue on with the saga then you have to pay for them (I think it’s around $AUD 6 each).

The game plays out as your typical point and click adventure game. Double left click to get the menu where you can talk / grab or examine or right click to access your inventory. You can also join items by dragging / dropping two items to make a third and some items are simply red herrings. So there’s nothing new presented here as far as adventure games are concerned.

The puzzles presented are not challenging at all as the clues are quite obvious. Examples like ‘…for the moment’ triggers that you are missing some sort of action and so forth. Also there’s not a lot happening as it plays on one event leads on to another so you won’t be juggling many puzzles in one go. Thankfully the puzzles are all logical so it shouldn’t be too difficult to resolve them. Just examine and talk to everyone and you cannot fail.

The game advertises that it plays homage to the old school adventure games. You can see this via the visuals as it all renders in 2D and actually does look nice. The character’s walking animation are quite stiff however you won’t be suffering from pixel hunting here. The musical scores are very pleasant to hear with sombre scores when doing some investigations and the title screen has an upbeat tempo. Sometimes I wonder if the game is an afterthought from the music itself. The voice acting is pretty decent too yet it has its odd moments of that ‘emotionless’ speech however nothing to cringe about.

Because this game is free, you cannot argue how good / bad it is however because it forms part of a trilogy, I guess you can say you are getting an entrée before the main course. Yet the strongest feature for any adventure game is its storytelling however there’s nothing really thrilling about this one. If developers 3f interactive can pull it off with the next two and increase the length, then it would be a decent purchase overall. However time will tell if this is the case and as for me, the game wasn’t thrilling at all yet enjoyable enough to finish it off with all sixteen achievements earned.

The campaign is small, but might take some time to finish without hints. The game is free to play, which is nice and it's pretty easy to get all achievements on the game which don't require much time to get.

For a free Point and Click game... This is rubbish and I would totally not recommend wasting your time on this.

There are limited positives that I can think of including the following...

Positives:
- Relatively Easy
- Short
- Easy to 100% Achievements
- Free

Now onto the long list of negatives which would deter anyone with half a brain from playing this game...

Negatives:
- Storyline isn't intreguing and well thought of
- No replay value
- A lot of repetitive talking
- Characters are lame
- Not funny at all
- Voice Overs are all similar
- Chatting with someone is annoying as chosen options don't dissapear after choosing one
- Controls are not the best
- Alt Tabbing caused game to black screen upon re-opening and I couldn't close the game without restarting (Windows 8.1 x64bit Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX)
- Relative annoying to figure out what to do, as story is poorly written
- No replay value
- No incentive to play the next chapter (Why would you pay $6 for something that is terrible?)
- Graphics are cartoonish to an extent


Overall, in my opinion, only play this game if you want an easy 100% complete game. There is nothing else to look forward to whilst playing this and if you alt tab like I did, it'll most likely crash and you'll have to re-start your system. Not worth the time even though it's free. If you must play this, don't expect anything.

Overall, I'd rate this 0.5/5!

PS: Don't even think about paying $6 for the 2nd Chapter... it's a rip off and I can think of 100 games under $10 that'd be more worth your money and time.

Pros:
- It's free
- It's challenging
- It's short
- Easy to get most/if not all of the achievements

Cons:
Oh dear... this is where it gets... long and... detailed....
- It's short. Too short.
- Dialogue sucks, to the point it's hard to figure out what to do without hints.
- It's challenging. Again, its hard to figure out what to do without the hints.
- Generic storyline. You can clearly tell it wasnt given much thought in terms of story.
- Got boring quickly. I had issues wanting to finish it and I'll probably never play it again after I unlock all achievements.
- Slow movement. For a guy wanting to escape, he just leisurely walks around.


I see there's a $6 usd chapter two and I'm trying to figure out why anyone would actually pay for it and play it when the game has no incentive or any super good quality about it.

Would I reccommend this to anyone? Sure, if I hated them.

Not bad, but definitely not something I would pay for. I found the voice acting annoying, so I turned off all voices near the start of the game.

Also, some sections of puzzles seem a bit extraneous. Like the fact that I have to click on a person's name (next to a picture of a key) on a sheet of paper to realize "Oh, this person has a key!", and hence advance the game by opening up dialogue choices. I can SEE that the person has a key; don't take me for a blind idiot.

Far too many places one can click on, but most of those places merely provide flavourtext and are not related to the story.

Person walks WAY too slowly. If it were presented in 1st-person mode (like the Submachine series or ALMOST EVERY OTHER ESCAPE GAME), it would be a vast improvement.

Far too short for a game I need to download. This would do much better on a Flash game site, like Kongregate.

In any case, as others have mentioned, the only reason I downloaded it was because it was free. If it had even cost 50 cents, I likely wouldn't have bought it based on the reviews, and I don't regret the decision to not buy it if it had cost money.

The puzzles are mostly straightforward. Mostly

Downloaded chapter 1 and thought "hey, if it's good I'll buy the second chapter!" Well, I'm glad I didn't spend money on this snorefest.
Too slowly paced, bad voice-acting, an uninteresting story opener, confusing puzzles bound to a certain chronology which makes the game unnecessarily frustrating. Stay away from this, it's not worth your time and nerves!
