About This Game

Something distinctly odd is happening in the Kingdom. In the town square, the plungers are feuding and the situation is quickly going down the drain. A huge, fire-breathing kitten has besieged the castle and threatens to bring catastrophe. And you just can’t brush off the fact that the King is actually an old wooden broom who wants to sweep all these mix-ups under the rug.

In this wacky parody adventure, the ridiculousness is unstoppable. Think “MadLibs” meets a classic “collect-and-combine” adventure game - but with more puns and time-traveling robots.

Features

ADventure Lib is a classic fantasy adventure game, except...
  • Randomness
  • Silliness
  • Awesome Puns
  • Chickens that aren't usually chickens (but probably still taste like chicken).
  • A terrible something that can only be described as “fish.”
  • The Coming Singularity
  • Epic Feuds
  • Impending death by kitten fire (or pineapple fire, or princess fire, or, well you get the idea)!

About ADventure Lib

Have you ever noticed that the puzzles in point & click adventures are bizarre or outright ridiculous? Like “combine the fishing line with the artichoke to get the platypus to open the grate so the rubber ducky floats down the tube...” when all you really wanted to do was open a door or something?

Adventure Lib lovingly pokes fun at this roundabout nonsense with puzzles that are more than ridiculous, they are completely random! All the characters and items you interact with are literally swapped with each other, so you could be Plunger the Brave, whose quest is to open the locked pants of legend and solve outlandish item combination puzzles like putting butter on robots (that would totally short its circuits).

ADventure Lib is not a long game, but it is designed for re-playability - much of the fun is found by playing multiple times and discovering new [often unintentional] jokes, and new object-specific puns and dialogue.

Should I Play ADventure Lib?

If you like randomness, puns, point & click adventures, and parodies, then definitely. This is a silly game, for silly people.

Object Manager

Want to add even more awesome wackiness? There is now an Object Manager that allows you to add your own objects or characters, to be immediately shuffled into the game! You can draw a banana, record yourself saying "banana" and before you know it you could be walking around as Banana the Brave!

I picked this game up for $0.54 CAD during the Summer Sale. The humour is entertaining enough that it'll keep you giggling for at least 15 minutes, which is really all it takes to play through the game. Considering how dirt-cheap the game was, it's a definite "recommend". I'll probry come back to this one every now and again when I want something silly to show friends.

Steam Workshop support is a nice bonus.

This 'game' is basically a very short point and click adventure title that mixes up all the graphics of the key items/characters and plot devices to... uh. Just look silly. The game itself is ridiculously simple and quick to finish with zero replayability thanks to the core story and puzzles being the same each time. Not worth picking up sadly.

Well, this was a silly game. It basically randomizes items and mixes them up, so instead of a knight, you might be a chicken or butter or what have you. Your spear might actually be other random items. The puzzles are as simple as they get and the whole game wont take but 10 minutes or so to finish for most people. You can play over and over if you like with randomized items, but other than that, there really isnt a point to playing the game again. I think all told, I would probably give this one a 3 or 4 out of 10. Easy achievements if you care to get them all. I walked past an item that would have given me the two I am missing and I really cant be bothered to go back and grab them, lol. Meh.

This game tries to be funny by making everything random and messed up, and sometimes it works.
But this game is a puzzle game. So how am i supposed to know you have to go into the shed and find corn and then combine it with a plunger to kill a dragon? And why the hell am i a potato?

ADventure Lib is a moneygrab, and an awful one at that. It's not often you stumble across something as bad as this.

I had read all the negative reviews for this game and wanted to give it a try because sometimes people can be a little over the top when it comes to writing something bad about a game, but in this case, every single one was justified. It doesn't matter how mad or wacky the developers said they tried to make the game, it is a lie. There is no effort put into the making of this at all. I truly feel sorry for the developers if it took them longer to make than the twelve minutes I put into getting all of the achievements.

In ADventure Lib you play a hero who has to find a great treasure to prove himself to the king. There is a pool of words that are scrambled into the game and will be randomly assigned to certain items. These are words like 'key, butter, Charles, plunger, knife etc.'. Every time you begin a new game everything will be re-randomized using the same pool. The story remains the same, the characters remain the same, the only thing that changes from playthrough to playthrough is which item gets called what.
Being a point and click this makes ADventure Lib a pain in the ♥♥♥ to play. Point and click games rely on you combining different items with each other, as does this, except these items are randomly named so the entire game is trying every single item with something else until something works. All future playthroughs will be boring as once you know where you find the item you'll know what it is meant to be and where it is meant to be used.

Every achievement can be found in one single playthrough and can be gotten within 15 minutes with ease, though there is nothing to make you want to get them besides the fact you actually wasted money on this and feel like you NEED something in return.
The voice acting is poor, the graphics are basic and the story is terrible. There is no re-playability, and no fun to be had the first time you play either.

There MAY have been a good idea somewhere here but the lack of effort from the developers have left this game completely worthless.

ADventure Lib truly is a game that doesn't ever need to be played. I hope that no-one spends their money on this and the developers should feel ashamed charging $2 for this mess of a game. I know I'll be avoiding anything Fancy Fish Games makes in the future, even if it's from a cheap bundle.

Take an everyday standard adventure and mix up all of the nouns and you get 'ADventure Lib' where illogical solutions are the only way to proceed.

The concept is fun, fresh and silly making it a great game for children who would play the game multiple times to see the different combinations. While being fully voiced helps the appeal for young players the voice work is spotty at times not just in performance but also recording quality. Steam workshop support also allows players to add new words to the pool.

Due to the random nature of the game, player experience will vary greatly depending on the shuffle. Overall this game does a lot right and if it polished up some of it's rough spots it'd be a great kids game.

A very strange game. This is a very classic knight, dragon, princess, magic sword, son on and so on story but with every element mixed up - thus the king is a potato, the fire breathing dragon is now a fire breahing fish, butter knife lays out plunger eggs so on and so forth.

Strange game indeed, it takes about 20-30 minutes to finish this short game.

I don't know whether I would play it again because the next playthrough is basically the same. If you can play this game then give it a go but I would not buy it.

Very intriguing concept, but so ultra short that even $2 feels like you're paying too much and terrible ending.

Get it if you find it for 14 cents or so in a random sale, but otherwise pass.

This game is an interesting concept that would potentially be a fun free flash game that could garner some mild interest. It is NOT, however, anything worth paying money for. There's maybe 20 minutes of gameplay at best, the voice acting is sub-par, the alleged "wackiness" and "comedy" is one joke repeated over and over again, and the actual gameplay is pretty horrendous. It suffers from the point & click disaster of the most efficient strategy being to use everything on everything else - not only because the item pool is tiny, but also because most of the solutions seem completely arbitrary. Additionally, most of the interaction buttons are hard to actually trigger - you can be standing right on top of a character you need to talk to and still spend more time wiggling around trying to get the "Talk" button to show up than you spent working out the actual puzzle. This is presumably because the character sprites changes every playthrough, but that doesn't make the gameplay any more enjoyable.

All in all, it's an okay idea that was executed far too poorly to warrant charging for. I got this game for $0.40 from a Groupees bundle and I'm still not sure if it was worth the money.

Nope.

Look guys, this is a linear game with literally 4 screens, no animations, and ♥♥♥♥♥♥ voiceovers.
Just because you jumble the pieces around each playthrough doesn't make the 10 minutes it takes to complete it any more fun or "humorous". Unless you're a person who considers replacing a dragon with a butter knife the pinnacle of hilarity.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: August 4, 2015
Developed by: Fancy Fish Games
Achievements: Yes
Steam Workshop: Yes

Story:

ADventure Lib is set in a medieval world and you are a hero who embarks on an adventure to save the kingdom; however who/what you and every other thing in the kingdom is/are is totally shuffled when you start playing causing some hilarious moments.

Gameplay:

Start the game with a shuffle button; every character and item is randomized but still keeps their assigned roles. (IE. In my first play through the king is a butter knife and the hero is a potato)
Classic adventure gaming returns with looking at items, collecting items, combining items and using items. At least in this game the ridiculousness of that classic system is highlighted but the completely insane randomization
Because of this most of the game play is just trying to find the right tool for the job at hand, whether it’s fighting the PLUNGER or helping the CHICKEN. Results may vary.
There are secrets to be found, from the charming Easter Egg/Throwbacks in the backgrounds or the collectables that are a little tougher to find, sometimes.
One of the coolest features of ADventure Lib is the ability to create your own assets to put in the game! An easy to use interface lets you provide the image (I used a transparent PNG and it looked great) record the word yourself and it gets added to the game with everything else.
Steam Workshop is also integrated so you can share your creations with everyone. Whatever they may be. We all know what’s coming.
The game is admittedly on the shorter side but that actually works for me; the best part of this game is shuffling the entire game into a new experience and playing with new crazy stuff going on. That said, the ending I received initially was fairly abrupt and I am not 100% sure if there is a “good” ending that you can receive on subsequent plays.
All in all there isn’t much that you wont be able to figure out with a light application of intelligence
and patience. This isn’t Dark Souls; this is a lighthearted adventure and just a good bit of silly fun.

Graphics:

ADventure Lib, for being a simple 2D exploration game, manages to look really clean and well put together.
It looks they way you would expect, being light on the animation side with stuff bobbing around the screen. This helps when you add your own content it fits in perfectly.
Able to change character’s two main color schemes anytime

Sound:

Music and SFX: The sound effects and music are just fine. No problems with them; nothing special in that regard. It all blends into the game play well.
Voice Acting: This game is fully and independently voice acted. It is half of the charm, really! Its nice that they took the time to do this even if it was done by people who are new to the industry. Only a couple lines came off as recorded out of place but it was hard to notice amongst the crazy dialog. Also: If you add an asset to the game you can count yourself as a voice actor as well. 😀

Final Verdict:

ADventure Lib is a light-hearted and loving tribute to the “use X on Y” genre. While it is small in scale I had no technical issues playing it and had a lot of fun working out the puzzles (basic as they are). Adults and kids alike would have a fun time with all the goofy situations that arise in this game and at the price it’s damn near risk-free to give it a try. It is a little short but it’s fun to replay (especially after adding new characters/items to the game!).

Quirky parody/spoof of RPG point and click adventures that takes about as long as a lunch break to play. Not for everyone, definitely not for everyone. But if one likes MADLibs and that type of absurd humor then this game will provide hours of amusement. NOTE: In no way should this game be taken seriously.

- Totally absurd.
- Perfectly clownish.
- Absolutely stupid.
- And even more funny.


Now, honesty game is too short, but reroll (randomize) option along with ability to add you're own characters or objects to play with, will surely give you couple of funny hours spent on this title.

I wont tell you anything more, game is worth its price so go ahead and buy this compilation of randomness.

Overall: Recommended to everyone who have spare 1,99$

"Pretty messedup adventure"
You will play a very short fairytale point and click adventure. But first you realize that shuffle button in the start menu. Shuffle means suddenly the king become a screwdriver and the princess a piece of butter. Now you must concentrate to solve all quests with confused item names and persons. Because all keywords in this fairytale got messedup. Some find it funny. Others might get a nerve breakdown ...
