Good Point and Click, you should play the previous games before this one or you'll miss most of the story and references.

Finished the trilogy :) Great trilogy, easy enough, many laughs, great art, nice plot. Maybe the last chapter is the best of the three but can't really say it. Second chapter ends with a cliffhanger. 80/100

I Must have missed something along the way, because when this game came along I was all psyched for the continuation of the series. A point and click adventure puzzle game series with a nice complex plot that felt like someone's imagination had runaway with them (with a nice sci/fi twist that kept you guessing.) Then came this game.

Essentially, this game says: Nope! Sorry. We made up the other two. They were interpretive fantasies of the main character. Nothing actually happened the way you spent hours figuring out and playing through. It was a terrible let down. Some of the puzzles were a bit obscure in the others, however they (their stories) were entertaining enough to keep my interest and make me into a hopeful for this game. With the onset of A Twist of Fate, I've personally decided not to buy another game from Pendulo Studios.

The voice cast is completely different for starters, as it sort of grinds at your ears after getting to know the other characters in the other two games in the series. Not enough to be game breaking, but enough that you notice.. repeatedly. I'm not saying they're not a good cast, they did do a good job, but you can't get by without noticing within the first 5-10 mins. The artwork is nicely done, and very enjoyable. The color tones of the various areas help set the mood of each chapter splendidly.

All in all, taken as an individual game it is enjoyable. The puzzles are difficult without being impossible and usually very intuitive. (I did run into a few places where descriptions or items were referenced without having previously been seen, something that I did not run into in the other games in the series.) In particular, A Twist of Fate seems somewhat easier than the other two Runaway games - something I wouldn't mention if it wasn't very noticable. Sadly, it seemed almost dumbed down and changed around for the masses, appealing to a wider audience by compromising story plot and introducing a larger number of cutscenes.

I'm certain someone out there will point out some major flaws in my review for whatever reason, but in summation: I don't like or recommend the game. The game by itself is nice, well thought out, and the plot is interesting- bringing an entertaining conclusion to the series... (that being said, -again in summation- in relation to the rest of the series, the game sucks.)

A fun and lovely looking adventure to be sure, packed full of Pendulo's signature bizarre characters. That said, this final game of the Runaway trilogy has considerably scaled back that casual, oneiric insanity that made The Dream of the Turtle so wonderful -- and as a great lover of pleasantly mad things, I find that ♥♥♥♥ing tragic. Also, A Twist of Fate is about half as long as that game. No, I still recommend this . . . I just can't comprehend what made Pendulo choose "good" over "awesome" this time around.
