Gotta tell you... As a longtime fan of the genre, I typically love any game that follows the classic point and click RPG format of King's Quest, Kyrandia, Full throttle, etc. I love that these games are coming back, with a great resurgence in the Tell Tale games series, The Silent Age, and more. However- Kaptain Brawe just sucked. While the artwork is nice and certainly original, the puzzles have remarkably little logic. A lot of the game made no sense, and seemed to depend upon you having some innate knowledge that simply hadn't been imparted by the story. It's also way too short for what you pay. I appreciate that the designers may have been trying to pay homage to the classics, but Kaptain Brawe is simply not worth your money.

This game was rather enjoyable. I feel like this game is a very good starting point if you are new to point and click adventure games. The reason for this is the game is not too difficult, but there are some pretty good puzzles that make you think (I believe the puzzles are what define this style the most, since other aspects are easily found in other styles of games). I think that there are some games out there that take the puzzles too far to the point of frustration for veteran point and click adventure gamers, as well as those new to these games. For someone like me, I can live with some of these less desirable parts because I have witnessed some truly astounding games of this style! But sadly for some newcomers, they leave before they can see the great aspects that these types of games have to offer. Therefore, I think this game is a good safe start if you are looking to try out these types of games.

On a more negative note, the game sadly was not a very long one, which in turn made the story very short and a little bit under developed. The story turned out to be decent enough, but remember I said decent, not "the greatest thing since sliced bread". I was also not super into the style of the art and design of the game, but while I wasn't into how the game looked I have to admit that I think many people would enjoy the art of the game and many would also consider the art to be quite good. One last thing that you will have to live with is reading text. No voice acting. Again, not something that someone who played any of the older Sierra and Lucasarts games would have a problem with, but others might.

So while this game does not fall in my top tier of point and click adventure games, I didn’t feel like it had any glaring problems either and I do believe that the game is worth a try for fans old and new. If you have some spare time pick up this game, sit back, relax, and enjoy your next voyage in space.

Kaptain Brawe tried to boldly go where others have been before and partially succeeds. I loved the cartoonish style and the throwback to the golden era of gaming, but unfortunately that's where it stops short. The game is not very long (about 7-8 hours), but it's a decent experience overall. The problem is, it could have been much better if it had better story development, more fully-fleshed characters and more entertaining puzzles. I love point and click adventure games, but if I spend too much time combining things at random and when I get bored and look for the walkthrough I don't go "Damn, I should have thought about that!", but instead "WTF!", well, that takes away from the gaming experience. To be fair, there are some fun puzzles, that actually add to the story, but I wish there were more of them and more story development to begin with.
I always wonder when I see a game like this, why it fell short of it's potential? For indie projects I assume it's all about the budget, but still... I would recommend this game only for P&C fans and when it's on sale.

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World is a point & click game in the style of old LucasArts classics.
While the idea behind the game is good, the final product strikes me as somewhat unpolished.

The comical – sometimes satyrical – plot is interesting, but very short, making up for less than five hours of gameplay.

Presentation is good, overall: while the absence of voicework may sound – or rather, not sound – strange to players of modern works in the genre, dialogues are well written and the artwork is beautiful.

Gameplay is mostly good. I have one significant complaint, however: game modes should be better explained in the selection screen. In my playthrough, I chose "Casual" mode, believing "Hardcore" was this game's version of Monkey Island 3's "Mega Monkey" mode: extended puzzles, providing replayability. And the ambiguos description allows such conclusion.
However, it is basically a choice between interfaces: "Hardcore" features a multi-interaction cursor reminiscent of Full Throttle, while Casual" simplifies interactions by giving only one choice (as seen in several titles, like the Broken Sword series and The Book of Unwriten Tales).
Had I understood it better, I'd definitely have chosen the former over the later.

Kaptain Brawe is, in hindsight, a diamond in the rough: decent, has great potential, but could benefit immensely from a remake and/or spawn a truly amazing sequel... Or sequels.
Too bad two consecutive efforts by Cateia Games to crowd-fund Kaptain Brawe 2: A Space Travesty through Kickstarter failed, despite attachment of point & click veterans Steve Ince and Bill Tiller to the project.
We can only hope the developers don't give up, as there's surely much to be missed.

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World is a comedic point and click (PnC) puzzle adventure game with no voice overs. For people who enjoy PnC games like the classic Lucas Arts games (Monkey Island series, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max), you'll feel right at home with the controls and humor. For those who aren't too familiar with PnC games, this is a decent introduction to the genre. The game offers two different modes, casual and adventure, depending on if you want clues or not. The clues offered in casual mode are mostly useless, unless you really don't pay any attention to what you have to do. There are two pixel hunts throughout the entire game that threw off my rhythm (not too bad compared to other games). Most of the puzzles are pretty intuitive. The overall story and gags aren't as good as what you would expect from the Lucas Arts games, but it still was fun overall, and you can get through the game in under 3 hours if you are sharp on detail.

Bottom line, get it if you are a big fan of the Lucas Arts series, or if you are new to the PnC adventures. It isn't one of the best games, but it is fun and humorous none the less.

This is a pretty fun point&click adventure game. It has nice writing, decent puzzles, and a main character reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear.

Kinda short though, lacks voice acting, and the art resolution is only 1024x768.

I'd say get this one on a sale, and if you're a point & click adventure game fan you won't be disappointed.

It seems the game is trying to be similar to Monkey Island, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Imitation is sometimes considered flattery afterall. But, I will say, sometimes the dialogue just makes not much sense, while humorous at times, its sometimes a bit flat. Also, the story has some serious holes in it. Sometimes plot holes can be excused, but these are of the severe type that if you catch them you'll be wondering, "Where did he come from?" or "How does he know all of this?" And its never explained later on how one of the characters knows what he knows(which would have been acceptable).

But if you want something quick, and easy and it requires a little bit of brain power (some puzzles are okay, some are a bit...odd, for lack of a better word) then this game is for you. However, I don't think its worth ten dollars for its length. Perhaps $4.99.

Rather short but well made adventure game. The humour, graphics style and music seem heavily inspired by Monkey Island and The Dig. The quality of these, in addition to the animations, are quite high.

It only took 5 hours to complete, which included getting stuck for an hour on a puzzle where you have to pick up an invisible item which is a part of the foreground scenery. That one part slightly tainted an otherwise well designed game.

Another potential deterrent for some is the lack of voice acting, exacerbated by the dialogue being difficult to read due to the choice of writing style and font, as well as some slightly imperfect English localisation.

All in all, it was easy to look past the small number of imperfections and enjoy a well made adventure.

Kaptain Brawe is a reminder that not all adventure games are equal…in fact, some really suck. No, it’s no Jolly Rover, but it’s no Maniac Mansion, either. But dammit if it doesn’t try. You can switch between characters, it has a somewhat similar look and feel to Curse of Monkey Island if it was fused with the later Space Quests…but it doesn’t entirely work. The puzzles often don’t make much sense and as a result, you have a lot of obscure puzzles mixed with a bit of ho-hum dialogue. You could certainly do a lot worse (Jolly Rover), but it’s not entirely terrible.

Honestly, for the price, I MIGHT recommend it…but only if you really, really like point and click adventure gaming.

This game is fun for what is there. But what is there is not much. I was stumped twice in this game, and did not consult any sort of hint system or walkthrough, and I still beat it in 75 min. If this game was 3 times longer, it would have been a great game. As it is.... it's good for 3 dollars. I bought it 75% off for 5 bucks, and I still think it was overpriced.

Edit- Upon reading other reviews, I will say this game tried, and I don't have bitter memories of playing it, I just wanted a little more, that's all. There were aspects I enjoyed, I just wished it had been better.

Put your serious side aside for Kaptain Brawe because this dim-witted hero is a few cans short of a six pack. This is about as basic a point-and-click adventure as it gets with standard gameplay elements and very simple puzzles. There's not a whole lot to rave about since I really didn't find the story all that amusing or funny. It's definitely not the worst I've played, but I can't say it left an impression either--good or bad.

A point and click adventure game, not a bad one but it suffers from some minor translation problems. The dialog is all done through text so you need to be prepared to actually read it to understand what your doing. Very much in the style of the original Monkey Island, it is quite short however.

Started off as a fun and goofy adventure game with some genuinely difficult puzzles, even on casual mode. Ended with a really rushed, nonsensical, and not to mention pretty offensive ending that just left a sick taste in my mouth (it includes a crossdressing joke and the main villain getting creeped at when they get put in prison. Yeah.) In addition, it's pretty short, so there's not even enough content in between that to make it seem miniscule.

This is one that I recommend only with some rather strong reservations, and on the condition that you get it on sale with a massive discount. For one, this is a game that I replayed twice in an effort to add to my in-game achievements total. I still can't really say why, escept that it was relaxing. But, in any case, that should tell you just how short it is. When you add in the fact that it also is a bit glitchy, causing a need to sometimes go into the auto-saves and load the most recent one, thus doing some amount of replaying, in order to successfully continue the game, the issue becomes even more glaring. The in-game hint system is flawed as well, so if you do get stuck, you can't really rely on it. Fortunately, most of the puzzles are quite simple to figure out, and there are only a couple parts that might truly trip a general gamer up a bit. I managed to get almost all of the in-game achievements with little trouble before getting too bored to keep on with it, but even the developers apparently no longer remember how the trickier ones are earned, or just aren't telling, so if you're playing for that reason at all, be warned that you're mostly on your own there. All of this said, despite the glitches, simplicity, and other issues, the game is actually pretty fun if you enjoy point-and-click gameplay. I really liked the light humor, the "alternate" ending, and the look and sound of the game as a whole. Yes, it does get boring fast after the first playthrough, and the glitches are irritating when they do trip you up, but if you get it in a bundle like I did, or from a really good sale, then it's definitely worth trying out. If they ever add on trading cards or Steam achievements, I'll say that even more enthusiastically, though most of the time I don't really view those things as important. If you play the game, you'll understand.

It's a fun little point-and-click adventure similar to the LucasArts games of the early '90s. It is obvious from some UI quirks that it was designed for phones/tablets, but it plays just fine on PC.

I wouldn't call it a must play, but if you see it on sale, give it a shot.

Well.. A some sort good adventure.
Basically , the whole adventure is only 2 long and HARD riddles (50% of the game or more).
Everything else is just EASY!

I was NOT so fond of the game. But it has some fun time.
Still it misses the voices sounds. Like the VERY first adventures.

For time killing is Good. Still those 2 riddles will be very tiresome with NO reason.
The game uses the modern phylosophy of adventures in cases and confuses you.
You can grab things from the environment BUT to use them sometimes it needs
you to really have a plan or understand what you're doing. And even if you DO
know in some case you have to have a clue in the game to show it, else the
riddle is locked and SO on the progress...

There was a time that I examined a thing in a previous chapter and I needed
to do it again in a next one to unlock the riddle. Really tiresome with NO reason!

Some good points.
There is a chhoice in the menu about the subtitles so they end with a click and
you MISS nothing.
Another one that I liked is the achievements. They DON'T cover ONLY the progress
of the game but still the funny points that you may see or NOT according to your
decisions in the play. So, keep your saves in case you need to replay to see
what you have lost , because that's way you play adventures.. FUNNY PLAY!!!

Anyway.. For the experience and the hard ADVENTURERS, the "Masochistic" Ones...
