Reviews

"This great adventure is entertaining for adults and children alike."
85% - PC Gamer

"Hamilton's Great Adventure is a good, solid puzzle game that's a refreshing midpoint between mindless casual tile-matchers like Bejeweled and antagonistic platform games like Super Meat Boy."
80% - Gamespy

“I was supposed to be crossing the 20-hour mark in Deus Ex: Human Revolution yesterday afternoon and yet, I found myself playing a downloadable game called Hamilton’s Great Adventure. That should say something.”
8.2/10 – PSXExtreme

“It sets a few new standards for the puzzle-genre and has the ability to leave you speechless because it doesn't meet your expectations but outnumbers them!”

DO NOT BUY! YOU PROBABLY WON'T BE ABLE TO PLAY IT!

I'm asking for a refund right now. The game crashes random and repeatedly, devs don't reply to forums, the email addresses they've provided don't work (my emails returned).

It doesn't matter that it's potentially fun. Nothing matters if you can't play it.

Rate this up so people don't buy it.

★★☆☆☆

Pros:
- Light-hearted and casual.
- Flying as the bird is tremendous fun.
- I admire the games colourful design.
- Stone stepping can be fun, although trial & error.

Cons:

- Its all just a little childish.
- Puzzles are too simplistic, providing no thrill or challenge.
- Very little on offer to warrant a playthrough as the game does nothing particulary well.
- No checkpointing.
- The story, like the rest of the game, is dull.


Verdict: Its a very boring game, although it looks promising its barely even a puzzle game as its basically timings and levers.

I'm not sure whether to call this a puzzle game or not. All you have to do is to get to the goal, hitting switches, dodging environmental hazards and the occasional "enemy". Once you found the correct path to take, you can finish a level without much trouble.
Collecting coins is optional but to unlock more levels you'll need a certain amount.

Dont bother with the DLC since all it does is add 3 additional levels which arent too interesting nor challenging and you'll be done with those in no time.

I guess this is a good choice when you feel the need to take a break from other games that ♥♥♥♥ you off.

On a side note: Whenever I start this game and the splash screen "Plays best on Alienware" shows up I just cant help myself and I have to laugh.

After first few levels you have seen everything this game has to offer. Nothing really changes, the stages just get longer and more frustrating. The gameplay boils down to trial and error. Even one misstep will make reaching the goal impossible and you have to keep starting over until you memorize the path perfectly. Sometimes a failure isn't even your fault as enemies can break the path too, even if you tried to keep them at bay with the otherwise completely useless bird. (Local co-op, yeah right.)

If this were just a calm, slow-paced puzzle game, I could have lived with that. But no, there are "timed" puzzles as well and they really irk my nerves. For example, there was this one stage in which you have to keep a snowball rolling so it will eventually reach a button which opens the gate to the exit. You have to keep opening gates and eliminating enemies from its path, but over half of the time you can't even see, where the snowball is going, no matter how you try to turn the camera. So besides learning the right path, you have to have almost pixel-perfect timing too.

Utterly boring game with unlikable characters and a story that nobody cares for. I paid about 1€ for this and still I think I got ripped off. Not recommended for anyone.

Ugh, so glad I only paid one dollar for this game. The idea is decent, but the controls and camera really bog it down. Also, all the game mechances revolving around the bird are just annoying and pointless. The game would be significantly better without it.
