Относно тази игра

Help Lucas MacGuffin (magician turned thief turned werewolf) sneak and smash his way through this fiendishly addictive comedy-puzzle-adventure for PC and Mac. Winner of the Freeplay Award for Best Game Writing! With hilarious dialogue, charming hand-drawn art and huge replay value, it's perfect for seasoned adventurers and casual gamers alike.

When fugitive magician Lucas MacGuffin bungles a museum robbery, he finds himself:
  • magically bound to an ancient amulet;
  • up against a city in full high-tech security lockdown; and
  • suddenly dealing with the worst body hair problems he's ever had.
As a human, Lucas is agile and cunning. Wolf Lucas would rather smash anything in his way. Only by transforming between the two forms and cleverly utilising both sets of skills will he stand any chance of lifting his curse.

And with the city's most powerful billionaire after his blood, a jaded Private Investigator on his (now-literal) tail and the rent long overdue, he'll need every ounce of ingenuity he manage.

Along the way he'll need to befriend a hilarious cast of characters, convince the city its most beloved citizen is a terrifying criminal mastermind, and hardest of all, teach his daughter it isn't funny to fill the fridge with dog food.

From the award-winning indie developers behind Jolly Rover (Australian Game of the Year, 2010 Freeplay Awards), MacGuffin's Curse is a story brimming with humour, personality and heart.

Key Features:

  • Friendly for all players - Enjoy a quick, fun logic puzzle fix, or lose yourself in a sprawling full-length cartoon adventure.
  • 150+ Puzzle Rooms - Inspired by classic top-down console adventures, these increasingly mind-bending challenges will push your logical thinking skills to the limit!
  • Challenge Without Frustration - Stuck on a room? P.I. Strump is on the line to help you along (at least between thinly veiled insults) with a seamlessly integrated hint system.
  • 90+ Sidequests - Meet the colourful nightlife of Feyre - a carnival city under curfew - and earn their trust with bizarre, legally questionable favours!
  • Charming Hand-Drawn Art - Collect 50 lavishly-illustrated comic panels to piece together - each expanding on the scandalous secret backstories of key characters!
  • Razor-Sharp Dialogue - With witty banter straight the golden age of point-and-click adventure games, you'll want to chat to every stranger and examine every park bench!
  • Insanely Catchy Soundtrack - From spooky strings to acoustic gypsy power-rock, this fun, upbeat score is destined to have you humming along!
  • Extensive Replay Value - Post-game challenges, hidden easter eggs, unlockable comics and developers' commentary will keep you coming back long after the credits roll.

This is a mistery game, where you have to solve many puzzles. You have an ability to transform into a werewolf. You can get stuck at some points, but luckily, you can use hints to solve a puzzle. I really like the visuals and the other stuff isn't bad either.

Awesome mix of sokoban-like puzzle and adventure game. Meet the Lucas, magician turned thief, turned werewolf :) Hundreds of puzzles, fun dialogues, unlockables and achievements will keep you busy at least for ten hours. IMHO, that the best choice for such low price. Thanks to Brawsome for another great game!

simple puzzle game with a little story , dont be fooled by the graphics , very similar to chips challenge [old game]
The puzzles kinda get overloaded in the later part of the game , drowning out the interesting story being developed, you can skip the puzzles but takes the challenge out of the game.
hoping a better game with the right mix of story and puzzles.

This is a very entertaining puzzle game. A really simple concept was put forth by the developer of moving boxes and pushing buttons in order to advance to the next room. Some puzzles were simple and easy to see, other took quite a bit of thought on which boxes to be moved first and/or which box should press down that button. While these thoughts are running through your head, you also need to make sure you can swap from different forms (wolf and human) which allow you to do certain things in each form that you can't do in the other.

Good humor, interesting back story, and excellent puzzles kept me hooked throughout this game and allowed me to finish it completely.

10/10

Phew. This is one surprisingly long game. It is by the same devs that did Jolly Rover which I also recommended! The game is basically tons of sokobans type of puzzles stringed together with awesome, witty, hilarious (lol at times) dialogue and a funny story. You have some pretty interesting characters and talking to them usually nets some sidequests of which there are surprisingly plenty! The game itself has quite some items to collect. Gold (loot) which are usually hidden in some weird places and comic scraps. The latter, once you collect all the scraps for a page, it unlock and turn itself into a full page colored comic! All these comics give the backstory of the main characters. I personally find them a nice touch.

By the time I completed the main story, I am only about 88% (there's a stats bar at the corner) done. There are also some hidden areas and I am not talking about those areas behind those security doors. No spoilers but there is really quite plenty to do here. Furthermore, every puzzle room you complete, upon returning, you will realize that the reset button has morphed into a commentary button. You get to read a few short lines of the devs commentary and they are quite worth reading. One little bug I had was that my achievement count for comic scraps got stuck at 3/47 but luckily upon finding all of them, the achievement triggered. Another little qualm was that upon completing the game (all of it), the stats bar shows 99%. It is a bug if you read the forums.

A game from the creators of Jolly Rover, (which I would also recommend) you play as Lucas a magician turned thief who becomes a werewolf after stealing a cursed necklace. The game is a puzzle adventure and Lucas has the ability to switch between human and wolf forms which becomes necessary for solving puzzles since each form has abilities that the other lacks. The game is fun, the puzzles are challenging and the game is quite humorous. Plus you're a werewolf who solves puzzles! How cool is that?!

Lots of fun, if you like block puzzling games. By the end there are a handful of puzzles that just feel tedious due to the iterative repetition to complete, but on the whole it is a very enjoyable experience. 5/5

It's a crate pushing game. If you have a fetish for boxes you can stop reading and just buy it. The game creatively uses shapeshifting to limit and enable particular movements or abilities, eg. werewolf form you can push crates but can't cross water amongst other thing. There are nice puzzles to be found, but the difficultly level is all over the place. Fortunately the game allows you to skip rooms so you can progress with the story and you can solve the rooms later. Where the game really shines is the dialogue. It's funny/witty/stupid with the charm of all three. Because of the number of rooms the game seems to approach mundane especially as some of the harder rooms you spend a lot of time to get something simple done and just have to restart if you do a single mistake, but the dialogue, unusual characters, commentary and secrets kept me intrigued until I finished everything.

MacGuffin's Curse is a puzzle game where you push and pull boxes in order solve puzzles. What makes this game special is you get a medallion from a museum that allows you to transform into a wolf. This wolf form is the only way to move objects within the world, however your human form, which you can switch to and from in moonlight, allows you to hit switches swim and open doors. The story is ok but what really shines is the world and all of the side quest within it. The game has a lot of optional content and even more is made available after you complete the story. In certain areas you can unlock safes that have comic books pieces in them that when put together make a nice visual story. You can also find money that can be spent on improving your house or unlocking music and art. The puzzles start out easy but get challenging quick. Luckily there is a hint system that gives you two hints and the option to skip the puzzle and come back to solve it later. The game length really varies on what you want out of the game. If you try to tackle all of the tasks in the game you could easily get 12 hours out of it. If you want to try a block pushing puzzle game you really can't go wrong with MacGuffin's Curse.

I've enjoyed it so far. Some of the puzzles are a bit tricky - so it's nice to have the built-in hint system. The soundtrack get's a bit repetative after a while, especially if you're stuck thinking on a puzzle for a while. Overall, a good game - I enjoyed Jolly Rover as well but Macguffin's Curse feels a bit more polished.

Heavily influenced by Sokoban (or Boxy Boy), MacGuffin's Curse is a pure joy to play. A puzzle game with a very interesting story full of witty humor, MacGuffin's Curse proves that an old idea can be recycled & yield an interesting result. The puzzles are accentuated by the ability to shape-shift into a werewolf & the changing scenery helps break the monotone nature of puzzle games in general. Only negative note is playing with an Xbox 360 controller: while using the analog stick it feels loose but this is expected on games with 4 axes controls. You can play with the d pad instead but that feels awkward, although it gives greater control.

Overall I feel that this one will be a hidden gem as I fear that not many people will have the guts to try it.

From the mind(s) what brung you Jolly Rover, it's a similarly-styled, yet quite different-genred Brawsome title. This isn't a point-n-click adventure; this is over 150 9-by-11 tiled rooms of puzzle madness. Only a few of them are brain-busters, but by the time this is over, you'll probably feel tired of them. Still, the humor has its moments (but isn't for everyone) and the devs' earnestness shines through. Worth it if you can make it through the first chapter.

Despite the quirky art and dialogue, this is actually a nice puzzle game, and one of the only DROD-likes on Steam. Most puzzles aren't really hard, but some do make you scratch your head. And all this depth with surprisingly few puzzle elements. You should give it a whirl.

I give it a solid three out of four werewolves.

This is a great puzzle game that is not afraid to make fun of itself and the genre. The puzzles vary throughout in difficulty and introduce new concepts and equipment for use along the way. There are several side quest paths to follow and a wide range of collectibles etc alonside the main storyline. I love to dip in and out of this game, solving one room and then coming back later. The developer has included interesting and amusing notes about the game's development throughout which add to its charm.

Time Bought: 2 months after release
Money Spent: $3.50 on steam sale
Worth The Price?: Yes
Position In Game At Time Of Review: minor gameplay, just escaped the museum

Ok so you turn into a werewolf and human. Sounds cool huh!? Well, not really. The devs just picked a werewolf for you to turn into. They could have easily picked a vampire or robot or grilled cheese sandwich. Great, now I'm hungry. Well, this game is a puzzler. The basis of this game is going from room to room and switching between both personas, which have different attributes, to solve the puzzle in each room. This game is made for the elementary kids and not for adults. Even the constant jokes are G level rated. I would get this for my elementary kids IF the pc port wasn't glitched!! That's right, it's broken :/ You automatically move objects that are near even if you don't want to. Example, you move a safe where you want it but cant back up without automatically moving the safe back again :/ This is not a good game to waste your money on imo.

Rating: 3/10

It's a passable block-sliding game, with passable writing and a no-foul puzzle-skip function. Unfortunately it also hangs at the drop of a hat when something steals focus or you switch tasks, so I really can't recommend it.

Synopsis: A 2D based game where you must move the objects in the room around the tile grid to solve the room to advance to the next and repeat. You play as a magacian who gets transformed into a werewolf and must save the city from the evil millionare.
Genere: Grid based puzzle

Yea! The art of the game is exceptional and fits the theme very well, built in hint and room solver feature is nice. Werewolfs!

Meh! Puzzle difficulty is all over the place, rooms in the begining of a section are harder while the last few puzzles of the game take almost nothing to solve. Game brags about its humor but that comes off very meh.

Bleh! Game quickly becomes tedious and repetitive! Quite a few times you have to move a crate run back to transform run back then repeat. Boss was a joke after the build up. Werewolf mode you cant close a door but can push a crate???


The lowdown: While the art direction is awesome, everything else seems to falter. The werewolf bit is a joke only there for a run of the mill story and gameplay limiter. After the first hour or two it becomes repetitive and only enjoyable in short play bursts of a few rooms at a time. Towards the end i was so bored and fed up I was just using the autosolver on the most tedious of rooms so I could finish. This game is only worth it at a huge discount and even then if your fan of this genre of puzzlers.

2/5
