It’s alright, but nothing particularly amazing.
I know this may be extremely unfair to say, but the feeling I get from this game is that it tries to pull of that unique, weird and whacky yet awesome art style and atmosphere that Amanita Design (Samorost2, Machinarium, Botanicula) pull off so well.
Now, I don’t know who came first, I’m not saying this is a copy and I’m not saying Amanita Design is better, I just don't think this game pulls off the style to well. It has very detailed and strange scenes to it, almost a “chopped up photos” kind of look to it, then cartoons and things CGed on top. I really doubt I’m explaining this very well but it just doesn’t seem to look right to me. Maybe you are reading this, and kind of understand what I mean?
Anyways, I have always thought that “gibberish” voices in games for characters communicating are annoying, and this game doesn’t help that at all. In certain games like Sims, it’s pretty bearable. But I found that this bugged me a bit. To kids and such it may be pretty cute or funny, and in fairness I think this would make a great kids game, but for teens/adults looking for a decent point and click game, this is not one I would recommend.
I don’t mean to be a complete moan about the game, I’m sure not everyone felt the same as me.
it’s an “alright” game, it’s got little mini games and puzzles and little bits of humour in it that again I think would make this an enjoyable game for kids, but I found it a little “meh”. I played through it until the end, so it isn’t like it was so painfully unbearable that I couldn’t even finish it. But now that I am done with it, I don’t ever see myself coming back and playing this game for the fun of it. If I were to come back to it at all, it would be to get all the achievements. If like me, you’re in that point and click adventure game mood and you're looking for one to play, I’d suggest you look elsewhere.
