The Comments You've Made
The game is worth playing to unravel the mystery of the alien visitation. But I'd advise anyone to have a lot of patience or consult a walkthrough when trying to solve the puzzles.
+/- good mystery, but the story needed to unfold better.
+/- puzzles (e.g. the water pipe fix makes no sense - round pipe/flat plate?)
- movement (sluggish)
A Tale of Two Kingdoms
Good game. I would recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy.
I had problems with the inventory though. Firstly, I found the circular inventory display frustrating since it made locating a particular object rather difficult. With a typical grid style, your eye can travel both horizontally and vertically and you can group objects together which facilitates your search. With the circular display you've got to look at items one by one as your eye travels around the circle. This was not helped by new items apparently inserting themselves at random positions in the inventory. Secondly, my inventory ended up to be rather bloated (3 pages of items). I realized later that these items were the remnants of side quests that I had missed. But having all these additional items in this kind of arrangement made it difficult to solve the main quest. I'm not sure if it's feasible, but I would have liked to lose items if I missed the entrance to their respective side quests.
But, nit-picking aside, a captivating story and interesting characters made for an enjoyable game.
King's Quest II+ VGA
Solid game. Seamless transition between puzzles made it nearly impossible to stop playing. It was always clear what needed to get done - no aimless wandering about. There was a bit too much about women being obsessed with youth and looking beautiful for my taste.
It's a crime this doesn't have any AGS awards. Seriously. A crime.
Great atmosphere and plot. Contains mature, original and multi-dimensional writing with much attention to detail. There's some very original perspectives and philosophical concepts touched upon in this game, and nothing is black & white. Really immerses you in its world and had me thinking about it long after.
Animations are a bit robotic (ha), so couldn't give it a full score, however, I have no doubt this is the best AGS sci-fi bar none.
Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!
One of the best AGS games I've played. Great light tone, a lot of good puzzles, many that were challenging without being unfair. Fun characters, witty dialogue, nice animations and a tight story. What more could you want?
