"I DONT GET IT WHY WOULD ANYONE COME HERE BY CHOICE ??" says Grimoire and i will tell you why you should ignore him and take a visit to the swamp,because its a fun place to explore and one game you wont regret visiting.
So of you go to explore the swamp and find out who (or what) killed Mr Remmington and in the process of doing so interveiw a who's who of suspects and ask questions that lead to other questions and challenges that will slowly lead you to the one and true murderer (be it human or something more sinister).
The game itself plays out in a true point and click style but doesnt bother with you having an inventory and therefore the need to mess about with items is done away with,now in a lot of games this would detract from what was the overall feeling of you being a detective but not here "OH NO".
The simplicity of the gameplay helps push the narrative along at a fair old pace and i for one found myself so hooked by the story and the overall feeling of the game that i carried on playing until i had finished and discovered exactally what was going on,and this is the games only flaw its length.
It is quite a short experience and thats a shame as i would have happily enjoyed playing for double the time and would have still sat there none stop until i had reached the ending to the game (which is both satisfying and one that even though i saw coming i really enjoyed),but at the price who can complain at whats on offer when its so entertaining and well put together.
Lets get to the meat and bones of the game now graphically the game is like a cartoon and the standard of the artwork is top notch,the music in game does grate a little at times but doesnt really outstay its welcome to the point of driving you mad (just grates ever so slightly) and the spoken dialogue in game is all delivered to perfection by the cast and even though some characters sound cheesy,thats how they are supposed to sound and it adds to the overall character of the game.
I really did like this game and hope that there will be a sequel (well it leaves it for one-NO SPOILERS JUST SAYING) but will you like the game ???
Well if you like a point and click game that isnt all "AARRGGHHHH I CANT WORK THIS OUT ITS JUST TO HARD" and a game that both entertains and makes you smile then yes you will enjoy this great well put together but short game,if you want a harder experience and something that has you saying "GOD THIS GAME IS HARD,BUT BY THE WILL OF ZEUS I WILL SOLVE IT" then i would look elsewhere as you will find this wander into the swamp a little to easy.
And dont forget "JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT SEE BOGGY,DOESNT MEAN HE ISNT REAL".
