About This Game

All 3 episodes available now, get the full season!

  • Episode 1 – We Negotiate with Terrorists:
    When a hostage crisis erupts in the centre of Clappers Wreake, Hector has to make a choice: carry out a terrorist’s demands, or let innocent hostages die. Hector’s still on the fence.
  • Episode 2 – Senseless Acts of Justice:
    Hunting a psychopath, Hector is pulled down a twisted trail of meat, sin, sleaze, and more meat.
  • Episode 3 – Beyond Reasonable Doom:

This point&click adventure is really funny. Puzzles are decently complicated, the story makes sense in its own way, and what will keep you interested is the fantastic (and really cynical) humour. Don't get fooled by the thick British accent: it's not just about British humour! There's some "heavy" stuff involving taking a crap to make a building explode, and using drug addicts to get refunds. And much more.

It's certainly worth paying a few euros/dollars/pounds for 10 hours (maybe slightly less, I'm counting the three episodes all together) of entertaining dialogues and puzzles.

Point and Click adventures are a finicky bunch; regardless of whether the genre as a whole appeals to you or not, there are always a few titles that you will love simply because of the thematic material. I personally find myself on a fine edge with the genre. I tend to get frustrated easily with the Sierra logic puzzles but at the same time I will often stick it out simply to see the next moment of storytelling. This can hold true even if the characters are not ones I have previously been invested in.

Sadly I just was not impressed by Hector. I made it maybe halfway through the first chapter/episode/adventure/whatever and just had no desire to suffer through the point and click gameplay to see the story pan out. I only briefly started the second iteration/sequel/whatever and it was just more of the same. The gameplay was by no means flawed and the art was actually rather marvelous, but Hector as a character just did not appeal to me.

Obviously I have no way to concisely convey all of my tastes in entertainment so I think my best advice would be to check out the trailers for the game, and maybe watch the first 10-15 minutes of gameplay on youtube. If you like the humor and the narrative then definitely pick up the trilogy when it goes on sale next. Otherwise, there are tons of other franchises out there to enjoy. I personally love the Wallace and Grommit titles, as well as the Back to the Future series.

“If I could get off this thing I’d come over, shake your hand and say congratulations, you’re ret@rded.”

There is no mistake that the humour in this game series is the highlight of the whole experience. It’s a slightly darkish humour but funny none the less. Especially if you get the quirky little remarks and references only a fellow brit would.

Hector: Badge of Carnage is a point and click adventure game set in a small ♥♥♥♥♥♥ British town that has been overrun with corruption and lack of giving a toss. Full of chavs, junkies, prozzies and rather crappy coppers you play as Hector, a questionable detective who is going to help the town, catch the bad guy and save the day!
…so he can indirectly help himself to probably go back to the pub or for a kip.

Dialog in this game is very amusing, at least it was to me. I would recommend the game for that alone.

Characters are enjoyable most of the time, the main ones are loveable, the… chav and junkie extras and whatnot not so much. But they’re WRITTEN to be annoying! So good job, old bean!

What I remember of the music wasn’t bad. Didn’t make me want to pull my hair out so that’s a good start.

Graphics are nice, I enjoy classic point and clicks more so then the newer ones and this game series is definitely one that should be on the list for anyone that likes the same.

Literally the only problem I had with this series is that I had a crash during the second episode. I lost no progress but it was still mildly annoying. Apart from that and me having a slow start with it (probably the old point and click brain trying to boot up again) I haven’t a bad word to say about it.

TL;DR : Great/slightly dark British humour, amusing characters, nice graphics and an all-around great little series, I recommend any point and click fan buys it.

It's pretty much Rosetta Stone for British Slang. 8/10, I now know what a "tosser" is.

+ Funny game with excellent dialogue. Lots of British slang. The mechanics of the game is simple: click once to See an item, double-click to Use it. All 3 episodes are connected, but Episode 2 is probably my favourite because it has the largest number of locations. The story isn't the greatest, but there is a big plot-twist at the end of Episode 2.

- The graphics are cute but the game's maximum resolution is quite-small, and doesn't support wide-screen.
