Since I wrote a negative review for Runaway: A Road Adventure, I should probably balance it out with my positive review for this installment. A huge improvement from the 1st game. I haven't played the second but compared to the first, much more likable characters, game feels less like a chore. I really enjoyed this one. As a lot of people have said, a complete turn around.

Great mechanics. Enjoyable all around. Awesome hint system. An in-game phone helpline that made getting hints actually fun. Not that you really should need many as most puzzles were very easy. Many of the extra dialogue choices were funny and totally worth taking your time to go through. Best mime portrayal I've seen in a game. Nice also to play as Gina.

Wow, looking back my other reviews for the prior installations of the series - Runaway: A Road Adventure and Runaway: Dream of the Turtle - and comparing, my jaw dropped for this one. The last time that I checked, Runaway series were a train wreck consisting of badly scrambled plots, annoying character stereotypes and painfully complicated gameplay. Playing the third and the last game in the series - Runaway: A Twist of Fate - I'd like to ask an obvious question: what is this wondrously intriguing adventure game and what has happened to the Runaway series?

Without further delay, we are back to Brian Basco's life. Our story opens up with a grim situation that we are not quite used to seeing in Runaway series. It all begins when Gina, ex-stripper, full time adventurer and Brian's fateful girlfriend attends Brian's funeral... I have to be honest: that was a twist that none of us would expect at all. Through certain flashbacks, we learn Gina's point of view. During their vacation to Hawaii, Gina insisted that they'd take a trip to Mala Island. Yet, their pilot had a heart attack during the flight and the plane crash landed to the island. Brian made Gina use the only parachute in the plane... and that was the last that Gina was able to see Brian. The next thing she knows, they are in a military camp, Brian's holding a gun in his hand and a military officer lying dead before him! Needless to say, he is apprehended immediately and stood trial for the crime. The peculiar thing is: Brian didn't remember a thing! The last he did remember was taking the trip to Mala Island! Pleading amnesia, Brian was sent to an insane asylum and was attended by a court appointed psychiatrist to decide whether the amnesia was real or not. A couple weeks after, Gina learns that Brian died in a botched escape attempt from the asylum... and that's the exact point where our game begins: in Brian Basco's funeral.

Even only by watching the starting cinematic, and recalling the events of prior games, I was baffled. I started to play the game immediately and finished it in one sitting to fill the blanks in the story. I was both surprised and glad to see that the plot progression, event dynamics, gameplay logic, character depth and the genre of humor were down right brilliant in this game! This last installment manages to tie up all loose ends and bring a lively dynamic to the setting by arranging various storylines into an understandable and exciting resolution - and also tops the quality of the humor a couple notches up.

All our characters - especially Brian and Gina - became incredibly well written and well displayed, easy to emphasize with. Gina now has a sense of humor of her own, alongside a stronger character display. She has become much more than the helpless bimbo that we've seen her to be in previous games. Brian, on the other hand, became way more resourceful, attentive and able - managing dangerous situations by himself without the completely random and somewhat idiotic chance events that we encountered in previous games. His compassion feels sincere this time, and his resolve is actually admirable. The humor baseline in A Twist of Fate became remarkably mature and tasteful too, with witty remarks and eligible references, including an ability to needle the flaws of the setting in previous games. I am pleasantly surprised!

Display options are noticeably improved. Sure, we are still given 2D backgrounds and 3D cell-shaded animations, but the artwork quality is mastered up until this point. Animations are cute, funny and relatable this time. Art works themselves are pleasant to look at. Voice acting is clear and matching with the subtitles too. I'd like to also add that this is the first time that a game in the series has noteworthy soundtrack, fitting for the mood and the tension waiting to be built up!

The game has arching storylines where we control a couple of different characters according to the narrative timeline of events, which is anything but linear to fill all blanks left in the previous games. As expected from a point and click adventure, we are given a limited environment to search through, gather items and talk to people to resolve certain chapters in narration. Good news: there is no pixel hunting at all! + there is a joke about pixel hunting near the end of the game :) Talk about self-criticism. Solutions for puzzles or necessary item combinations are not really hard to figure out. They mostly take some decent observation, basic logic and carefully listening to main characters' comments to get an idea about how their mind works. This way, we solve puzzles and observe their personalities successfully at the same time. If you are stuck, you are given a wondrously funny and almost always useful hint system starred by a familiar yet hellishly annoying character in the series. Sorry, no spoilers but you won't be happy to see that certain someone.

I'd never think of the day that I'd see a Runaway game well done, yet here it is. Runaway: A Twist of Fate is a great adventure game which manages to correct all flaws of the series, rebuild badly written protagonists into likable characters and tidy up the collection of ridiculously random events into a brilliant ending! I still cannot advise you to suffer through previous games, yet it is necessary to grasp all nuances of the storyline; and eventually appreciate the skill and artistry of the team that managed to make a mediocre series into one great story in one game! Thus, I can at least recommend watching a "Let's Play" for previous games. Runaway: A Twist of Fate is a beautiful adventure for you to take a chance on.

Overall a really good story line and approach. This is the fist of the Runaway games I've played so I'm not certain how it compares to prior games, I only know that I'm buying the remainder of them based on this experience.

The puzzles were mostly straight forward with a few twists that took a while to figure out. The characters and video cuts were enjoyable, some dry humor infused for a chuckle as well.

If you enjoy click and solve mysteries you will enjoy this game.

Great game if you can finish it, but it keeps crashing at the same point in chapter 4 where the dialogue keeps repeating itself over and over and i have to either start from the beginning or my last save point at the start of chapter 2 even though when i choose my profile at the start it says chapter 4 next to my name, yet it won't let me load to that point.

A fix to this error would make this game something that i could recommend.

A Twist of Fate - отличное продолжение серии игр Runaway производства Pendulo Studios. Игра, как и прежде, полна юмора, необычных и интересных ситуаций, в которых оказываются герои. При этом, впервые в серии, в третьей части игрок сможет примерить на себе роли нескольких персонажей, в том числе и возлюбленной главного героя, Джинны Тимминс.

В эту игру наконец было добавлено подсвечивание активных точек на локации, что упростило прохождение, а также в игру встроили систему подсказок, с которой всякие гайды по прохождению теряют смысл. Подсказки выдает игроку Джошуа собственной персоной, один из ключевых персонажей предыдущих игр серии.

Хочется отметить, что сюжет у игры получился намеренно запутанным, и поначалу кажется, что сюжет второй части, The Dream of the Turtle, отменили и третья часть имеет с ним мало общего, но это только с виду, ведь к концу игры сюжетный клубок будет распутан окончательно - и все встанет на свои места. Не все моменты между второй и третью частью получат огласку (возможно, как все было на самом деле, не знают и ответственные за сюжет), но игра, тем не менее, доставит вам море удовольствия во время прохождения. Поэтому, если за плечами у вас пройденные две первых игры в серии, не проходите мимо третьей части.

Silly combinations, a lack of humor or interesting story, this is one of the weaker "click everywhere" games I've played.

6 or 7 out of 10. I was going to write a negative review for this because of the tedious pixel hunting but I realised it's not an issue when you constantly click F2 to highlight every item in the scene. If you buy this game it will improve your playing experience using this, otherwise it's massively frustrating. Still only recomended to those who've played the better point click games already. It maybe better to first play Runaway 1 to get some background (I avoided the second game based on reviews) and those who are fans of the genre

Positives

Cinematic and clever use of gives an excellent graphic experience
A decent plot with a few twists

Negatives

An irritating leading character
Attempts at humour usually fail
Pixel Hunting - solved by pressing F2
Fairly short - the game was left on as I worked hence the high number of hours
Puzzles aren't always logical and sometimes you can try a solution that should work but if you don't use
The flashback to the Runaway 2 seemed far fetched.
Certain scenes weren't particularly engaging. It took quite a while to get into the plot

Runaway A Twist Of Fate
Третья часть похождений Брайана и Джины. В игре значительно улучшили графику , добавили поддержку широкоформатных мониторов, добавили подсказки и подсветку предметов, чего так не хватало в первых двух частях. По ходу прохождения познакомимся с несколькими новыми персонажами (актером и сценаристом). В игре завершили все сюжетные линии. Джина и Брайан Баско снова на высоте!
Отличное окончание трилогии.

Гораздо проще, чем первая и вторая части игры. Но при этом все стало логичнее, а не как раньше это было - пойди туда, не знаю куда, сделай то, не знамо что. В целом в сравнении с пред частями - лучше графа, сами квесты проще за счет сисетм подсказок и подсветки предметов. Упор идет на сюжет, что хорошо - рассказали почти все незавершенные сюжетные ветки.

Всем доброго времени суток). Все игры от Pendulo studios переполнены очарованием, юмором, атмосферой и разнообразных пародий на игры, фильмы, жизнь). Задачки в них не сложные, у меня проходилось на одном дыхании). В этих играх приятная мультяшная рисовка, персонажи, музыка и сюжет. А так как эти игры пародия, если что-то покажется банальным или знакомым - мы не забываем, что это пародия в наикрутейшей интепретации, эдакий коктель молотова.) Меня всегда просто поражает фантазия и подача сюжета этих разработчиков (в хорошем смысле). И не одна часть не оставила равнодушной. Поэтому всем советую брать сразу все игры "Pendulo Adventure Pack", а любителям квестов особенно советую)).

А теперь обзор.
Третья часть трилогии Runaway.Мексиканский сериал продолжается (интересно ж чем всё закончится=)).Как и положено серия идет по стороне эволюции.Управление стало более удобным, графа более симпатичной, сюжет как всегда на высоте и юмора хоть лопатой выгребай, а сюжетные поворты как в Голливудских фильмах, а вот герои всё те же (настольгия так и прёт) =). В этом весь Pendulo. Единственный минус это короткость игры. Если играли в предыдущие, то эта часть сама себя зарекомендует одним лишь названием, если же не играли, то рекомендую ознакомиться с предыдущими =). Игра не может не понравится)

10 надгробий из 10 :3.

Всегда мечтала побывать в желтом домике :3

Ну что же, вот и третья часть похождений Брайана и Джины. Разработчики проделали хорошую работу - значительно улучшили графическую сторону, подружили игру с широкоформатными мониторами, добавили систему подсказок и подсветку предметов, чего так нехватало в первых двух частях. Сюжет так же хорош и что еще больше радует - в игре завершили и обьяснили все сюжетные линии, начатые в первых частях, так что получился хороший завершенный сюжет.

Отдельно порадовали новые локации, особенно удалась локация психбольницы.

И обязательно дождитесь окончания титров (еще один весомый плюс - во время титров раздается возмущенный голос, который описывает все недостатки этой трилогии, как пиксельхантинг, длинные непроматываемые ролики и т.д. - удачный стеб разрабов над собой) и посмотрите финальный ролик.

Отличное окончание трилогии.

Моя оценка 8,5/10

По-моему, самая лучшая часть из трех Runaway, жаль только короткая. Когда запустил её, удивился значительно изменившейся (в лучшую сторону) графике. Помню схожие впечатления были от первого восприятия третьей части Кирандии.

Геймплей стал проще после первых двух частей. Игра проходится на одном дыхании, пикселхантинг невозможен благодаря функции подсветки (похожий фокус есть, например, в Депонии). А если вдруг где-то застрял - F1 и Джошуа даст подсказку. Очень разумное решение.

Мне Twist of Fate очень понравился. Лёгкий, веселый и оставляющий приятное послевкусие квест. Персонажи классные, нарисовано все с душой, локация в психушке - супер.

Играл с русификатором, есть на steamcommunity.

После прохождения досмотрите титры до конца.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate concludes the Runaway trilogy, giving it a worthy ending. There are already plenty of good reviews, so I'll just leave some short remarks.

As for the trilogy, this is by far it's best part. Part 1 had absolutely awful puzzles, while Part 2 although it had better puzzles, lacked pacing and failed in the story (telling) department. A Twist of Fate furthermore increased the puzzle quality and the puzzles became a mostly natural part of the story. Setting, story, dialogue, "acting" and pretty much everything got a more professional touch. Additionaly, stuff like hotspots marker and fast walking got added to the game, making it alot less frustrating.

Overall I enjoyed playing the game. Even though it might not be perfect (e.g. sometimes it's very hard to see the indication to skip scenes), it's a game I would recommend every fan of the genre. Chapter 3 was one of the best parts I've ever played in any adventure/p&c game.
I did not like part 1 & 2 of the trilogy and I'd recommend only getting part 3, as in-game dialogue and cut-scene supply you with the needed background information.

Too bad this was the last part of the series. Judging by the progress they made over the trilogy, the next part might've been a masterpiece.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate, is the third and final (as of right now) entry into the Runaway game trilogy. The story, while leaping ahead a bit in time from the cliffhanger ending of Runaway: Dream of the Turtle, can be considered a direct sequel since it wraps up the events from that game.

If you have played either of the other two games, which is recommended if you want to know the full story, then you will be familiar with the control scheme. This is a point and click adventure, with the left and right mouse buttons used to explore and pick up items. In your inventory you can examine and combine items, and select them to use in the environment. The puzzles are on the same level of difficulty as the first two games. There are no ways to fail, so if you are having trouble just keep exploring and combining items until you find the solution. A nice addition is a button to press that will show you all the hotspots in an area. That definitely helps make some of the pixel hunting go a lot faster.

The graphics have seen a nice upgrade from the previous game. My biggest complaint, the character models, have been improved, and while still not the best, are more than serviceable. The backgrounds are as nice as they have been in the Runaway series.

The voice acting and sound continues to be done well. There are some new original songs in Runaway: A Twist of Fate. Plenty of effort has been put into making the sound top quality.

One of my biggest complaints of the series has been the underwhelming involvement of Gina. Although saving her is a main plot point of the first two games, she is never really present for much of the games. You have no chance to form any sort of attachment to her. That is addressed in this game, where you will be able to control Gina for large parts of the game. She almost feels like a new character, because you did not have much interaction with her in the previous games. Brian is clearly a different character than when he began the first game, but it makes sense after the adventures you have been on together.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate felt like the shortest game in the series. However, what is there is very enjoyable, and I would much rather play a shorter game that is filled with quality content than a longer game that wears out its welcome.

I fully recommend Runaway: A Twist of Fate. I felt like the previous game, Dream of the Turtle, was a drop in quality in the series, but the trilogy ends on a high note. An additional adventure in the saga of Brian and Gina would be welcome.

Grade: B+
