This is a good point and click adventure. It has small bits that are a bit annoying. For example the protagonist explains every action before doing it and there are several quite illogical puzzles that involve searching randomly through spots that you already 'looted' before. Anyway, the story is interesting and the locations and characters are quite unique. The game still looks very nice and the music is mostly good. Overall a very solid adventure experience :)

If you're partial to a cinematic experience than 'Runaway: A Road Adventure' might just be up your alley. Although on first glances it seems like a standard point and click adventure game, you'll find out that it has a completely different individual element to it that is a rarity in modern day titles. A distinctive charm if you will.

The combination of 2D and 3D graphics is neat but alas the characters themselves aren't that interesting. The music is outstanding, but the main story itself is rather weak which is disappointing as it had so much potential.

This is a great point and click adventure, a real visual story that actually feels like I am interacting with it rather than some titles which simply have you play eye-spy for certain objects.
An engaging story with fun and complex puzzles, I picked this up during the Summer Sale, fell in love with it and bought the entire Runaway series.
If you haven't checked out any of the work from Pendulo studios, I recommend starting with Runaway: A Road Adventure

enjoyable point/click adventure game. lovely art and style. The best part is the ending.

It took a while to finish because some key items were a bit small and hard to see but I got it done.

First game in a runaway series. It's an old game, but it still looks great, has a good story, great charactres and gameplay. Some puzzles are too hard maybe, but i recommend this. I call it a point&click classic and must play for the fans of the genre.
