As an adventure game it is pretty much as you would expect, some pixel hunting and puzzle solving. What this game does well is the humor and the story, the characters are good and the puzzles range from easy to medium. There was only a couple that I struggled with but one of those was simply because I missed a doorway to another room so it was my own pixel hunting prowess that failed me not the puzzle itself. The downside is the puzzles when easy are so easy that feels pointless making you solve them but I did not feel that way enough times to make this a bad game.
I would recommend this game to adventure game lovers and even those who like a light hearted and humorous short game to play between potentially larger more complex and demanding titles in your library. As adventure games go it is about the right size in length to feel like spent your time enjoying it and not becoming a chore to get to the end. Speaking of the end it was a let down I felt (I won't say why as that would be a spoiler), but I felt it was predictable and could have been better but it does not damage the quality of the enjoyment too much that I had playing this title.
How much the game is worth is subjective so I can't say it is worth it's price x to other people because everyone values things differently. What I would say is I found it to be worth what I paid which I picked it up on a 50% off sale a while back, I would have even been tempted to pay full price though having played it now based on how much I enjoyed it but I cannot say others would feel the same way. I still find more enjoyment from Daedalics adventure games than Pendulos titles, Pendulos adventure games have a certain charm but my personal preference is Daedalics style. This game is probably my favorite one from Pendulo that I have played in a long time, much better than the Runaway series I feel.
